The Picket is a light multi-purpose missile tower. It is good for sniping units from a distance, providing some degree of anti-air protection, and skirmishing enemy LLTs from outside their range. However, it breaks when you sneeze on it.
Most players use this building for early-game area control and to fight off low numbers of skirmishers in the early stages of the game. You might build a few near your front lines as it has a large range and vision. This turret has very front-loaded damage (but low dps), which may make your opponent think twice before committing to entering that area.
