Lore[edit | edit source]

The Sentinel ESR is a dual stage, electromagnetic actuated sniper rifle manufactured by Paradinha Arsenal.[1] 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.[2]

Skins[edit | edit source]

There are a total of 49 weapon skins for the Sentinel; 7 Legendary, 5 Epic, 20 Rare and 16 Common.

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.[3]
  • There is a non-functional Hop-Up slot on the Sentinel that was added on February 02, 2021. It is unknown why it exists, but it could be a bug.
