Apex Legends Sentinel stats

The Sentinel is a standard click-and-shoot bolt-action sniper rifle that packs hella damage into each shot. Think of it as a Kraber-lite. Slow-firing, but if you land a hit, you know they be hurtin'. What sets the Sentinel apart from any other weapon in the Apex Legends arsenal is its unique ability to consume two Shield Cells from your inventory in order to enter a temporary charged state. During this charged state, each shot is a guaranteed 100 damage to the target enemy's shields.

Overall, the extreme punishing damage of the Sentinel elevates it to the top tier of Apex Legends weapons.
