The Sentinel is a sniper rifle introduced in Season 4.svg Season 4.

It has a unique 'Amped' mechanic: 2 Shield Cell.svg Shield Cells (1 with the Level 4 Body Shield.svg Body Shield) charge up the Sentinel, making its shots guaranteed to do extra damage. Charging takes 5 seconds and lasts 120 seconds, although each shot will shorten the timer by 15 seconds.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Sentinel ESR is a dual stage, electromagnetic actuated sniper rifle manufactured by Lastimosa Armory. Rounds are chambered through the rear bolt action receiver and fired with a traditional closed bolt pin. The round is then accelerated with a muzzle velocity of 5km/s through the EM Propulsion system. This delivers a projectile with highly destructive kinetic energy to defeat the immediate effects of bullet drop over distances of 2km. This gives the weapon more accessibility and a faster cycle time than the Kraber .50-cal Sniper in exchange for a little less lethality.[1]

Skins[edit | edit source]

There are a total of 48 weapon skins for the Sentinel; 7 Legendary, 5 Epic, 19 Rare and 16 Common.

  • Clean Shot - Needs Nightcore and Legend Tokens 10,500

History[edit | edit source]


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Sentinel is visible on the DUMMIEs back in Crypto's finisher "Drone Scan", when previewed in the Legends tab. This was a whole season before the gun was first unveiled. As said by community coordinator Jason Garza on Reddit, he messed up while capturing the finisher, and it shipped with the weapon showing. He also said, that he'd let the fans figure out what the weapon was.[2]
