The Bubble Turret[1] is a recurring enemy in the Contra series. It is a turret-type device affixed to the ceiling that shoots harmful bubbles that float about the area.


An artillery device affixed to the ceiling, usually emplaced inside a narrow corridor. When approached, the machine will start expelling small but harmful bubbles (possibly acidic) that will float about in random patterns, potentially crowding up the area. If let to, the bubbles will not simply remain within the turret's vicinity, but travel their own way along the level.

The bubbles can be easily destroyed, though, and any weapon that can cover a wide area (such as the Spread Gun or the Flame Thrower) will take several of them at once. Additionally, the bubbles aren't infinite, and once the turret has depleted its load, it won't pose any further threat. Care must be taken while fending off the bubbles, though, as Greeders (some armed) will be constantly entering the screen from both sides.


  • This enemy does not appear in the original arcade version of Super Contra (and direct ports of it).
