The Moho exploiter is an armed and armoured Moho metal extractor. Built by all T2 land and air constructors, they combine the extraction rate of a regular Moho Mine with a powerful defensive pop-up turret. It remains hidden until the enemy moves into range.
While looking like harmless metal extractors, they have potential to ambush and quickly neutralize hostile units. The turret is a double weapon composed of a heavy laser and a missile launcher with both ground and air functionality.
Being a burst weapon the launcher adds to the ambushing potential, the damage is heavily front-loaded leaving very little time to react and retreat.
Moho Exploiters also have a decent amount of health which makes them withstand much more damage than regular extractors. This versatility comes at a very high metal cost, so they are typically not worth building during the initial T2 expansion.
