Here, we'll go over everything you need to know about the brand new Sentinel weapon.
What Is It?
The Sentinel is a bolt action sniper rifle, effective at medium to long-range.
If a player presses the "fire select" with a shield battery equipped, the Sentinel will consume the shield battery from your inventory and temporarily enters an energized state.
While energized, the Sentinel fires projectiles that deal massive damage to shields.
The projectiles use different VFX trails, and there is a unique energized firing sound, so all nearby players know that the Sentinel is firing these higher damage projectiles.
The Sentinel has a limited amount of energy that decays slowly over time and loses a big chunk of juice for each shot. Once the energy runs out, the energized state ends.
How Does It Compare To Other Snipers?
The Sentinel is the fifth sniper rifle in Apex Legends, it joins the G7 Scout, Triple Take, Longbow and Kraber!
Although we know how the weapon functions, a lot of decision making will go into the best playstyle for it.
The ability to charge shots means it'll be putting out some heavier damage compared to some of the other sniper rifles.
Where Can I Find It?
As of right now, the Sentinel rifle seems to be fairly easy to pick up. This could be a way to let all players get a taste of the new rifle, before they're restricted to high-tier loot areas.
