How to Use the Apex Legends Sentinel Sniper Rifle Effectively

Apex Legends is one of the best battle royales of recent times by EA. Like other battle royales, Apex Legends also features a bunch of weapons. Sentinel is one of the most popular sniper rifles introduced in Season 4. Sentinel becomes almost unparralled in Apex Legends with its incredible performance and efficiency.

This guide will discuss how to use Sentinel Sniper Rifle in Apex Legends.

Best Use of Sentinel Sniper Rifle in Apex Legends

We’ve already told that Sentinel is a sniper rifle that can be used in a long-distance battle. There are two damage stats for Sentinel- Amped Damage and Base Damage. For example, if you shoot a head shot the Amped Damage will be 176(2x), and Base Damage will be 140 (2x). In the case of the Body, the Amped damage will be 70, and the Base damage will be 88.

Sentinel comes with bare-bones attachments that make it easier to hunt down targets. However, if you want to make your Sentinel the most powerful one, choose the Gold Mag, Purple Stock, and in the case of optics, select 4x-8x or 4x-10x Digital Sniper Threat. Below we are giving the total list of Attachments available for Sentinel in Apex Legends-


  • Epic
  • Rare
  • Common


  • Epic- 7 bullets
  • Legendary- 7 bullets
  • Rare- 6 bullets
  • Common- 5 bullets


  • 1x Holo (Common)
  • 2x HCOG “Bruiser”(Rare)
  • 1x HCOG “Classic” (Common)
  • 3x HCOG “Ranger” (Epic)
  • 6X Sniper (Rare)
  • 1x-2x Variable Holo (Rare)
  • 2x-4x Variable AOG (Epic)
  • 4x-8x Variable Sniper (Epic)
  • 4x-10x Digital Sniper Threat (Legendary)

These are the attachments available for Sentinel. Sentinel is a gun that can take down any opponent in a single headshot. Though hitting headshots in Apex Legends is difficult, Sentinel makes it easier. If your Sentinel is not Amped, then a body shot is okay.

 One thing you must remember is to charge your Sentinel. Otherwise, your Sentinel can’t perform effectively. Once you charge your Sentinel with two Shield Cells, you’ll get a 25% damage boost, which is an excellent benefit. Sentinel takes 5 seconds to get charged and provides five consecutive overcharged shots to break any armor of your enemy.
