Just keep pumping money into it.
Easier if you play private ( either solo or with friends) and get more than one base going so that you have multiple turrets to keep repairing and upgrading.

I'm pumping a ton of money into Turrets every Horde match. I got more than 10,000 Into it in one match. It's tough but definitely possible. It takes longer to get to the next turret upgrade than it does to the discount bonus.

Its a dickish move in my opinion, but in pugs (randoms w/e) I notice one guy tends to hang on to the turret ensuring he is the one that uses and usually repairs it. I finally got my turret up to 2 after about 4 pugs of repairing turrets first every chance I got, sometimes even sacrificing gathering ammo to make sure I got up to repair the damn thing. There is a down side in my opinion, as the upgraded turrets obviously cost more to reload and repair, and usually about that time your laser wire is costing near 4k a round as well, so while its nice to upgrade early on you might find you're kicking yourself later on when you have to choose barriers over rounds per minute...but I am a noob so there is probably merc ways around this that i am not privy to.

It's best to not spend any money on any other fortification. Save your money until you got 1500 to buy the turret (all bases have at least 1). If someone else hogs it save up more until you can fund another base. Then save up until you can buy that turret.

Even if you don't use it remember at the end of the wave you got some time to go and repair it or just keep shooting with it until there are 2 seconds left then reload it. Leveling up the turret simply requires cash being spent on it. Just focus on turrets only and it will come. That's what I did and now I got it maxed out.

There is an easier way I thought of...

Make a private Horde match and set your joinable party to invite only so it's just you. Create a Horde game on casual, choose the Overpass map and buy the base straight away at the top of the stairs. Do wave 1 with your starting weapons and on wave 2 buy the turret at the top of the stairs (not the one on the bridge).

Now just keep blasting them and repair/reload/upgrade until wave 10. You may as well die as it will be hard to do it on your own, once dead, restart from wave 1 and do it again.

Yea it's a cheap way but by doing this you get shit loads of cash all for yourself to spend on the turret and you can even run up to the bridge and keep upgrading that for more leveling up.

I actually did this once to see how far I could get on my own and died on wave 10 and gave up. I don't boost but I thought for those wanting it easy that's a good plan!

Level 6 Turrets, Awwwwwwwww yeah. God damn it, Now I need like 70,000 To get to Level 7. That's like, 17 Troika Turrets to get to Armoured Troikas. Gotta keep working on Turrets. I get most of my time in Horde put into them as my teammates usually leave me fending by myself at my base and then come along to yoink the kills when they see 'em. Hard to get enough money to keep reloading and repairing them. Especially when some d**k uses it all the time yet doesn't pay anything to it.
