Revenge of the Titans: Technology Research Guide

It is pretty difficult to tell what certain researches do or lead to within Revenge of the Titans. Certain research topics provide some useful, often vital bonuses to your turrets and mining operations so hopefully this guide will help give you some hints and tips with your research needs.

Also feel free to check out my Revenge of the Titans review.

A full tech tree with symbols. Full credit goes to Melak Denieth from the Steam Forums

It is currently incomplete but I will be working on it as I progress through the game.
