Summary0012858: Sentries have too little ammo
DescriptionI 100% agree that their ammo count needed to be dropped. However, 10 is very restrictive, especially in the later game. I think that it can be increased some, and I have two possible ideas:

1. Increase the ammo to 20 or so. That should be reasonable without sentries being completely overpowered. Base damage could be dropped somewhat to compensate.
2. Have trap skill level boost the ammo count as well. Linear progression makes the most sense, with every 1-3 points adding an additional turret shot. My initial thought would be two. That would make it so that every bot can equip turrets, but only one that specializes in trap skill will be especially effective with them.

Discussion is, of course, encouraged.

For 0.936:

* Sentry Turrets now gain +5% to their ammo capacity per point of the deploying exo's trap skill. Effectively this means that every 2 points of Trap Skill gives each of your turrets an extra shot.

Thanks! :)
