:think: <- me rn

Could someone give me tips on how to play sentry properly?

Im a bit confused as far as the mechanics. The blackholes damage is charged by taking damage with the barrier right? Well the barrier blocks no damage and it seems when I use it on a clunk nuke it doesn't absorb any damage.

Good spots to use teleport

Movement, and what to do in team fights

Early game buys
Mid game buys

If someone could send me some gameplay of some decent sentry gameplay, that would be appreciated! I love the design and the character, but would like to learn to destroy as well!

Thanks :think:

Sentry is S tier pain-in-the-ass character, you can't really play him wrong unless you are me. Don't overextend early and you'll be fine.

It does. 25% at base. Can be upgraded to 41% (sic!). That's actually a lot.

Depends on what you're using it for. Burst/silence/AA boost or recall beacon. It has lots of techniques and spots to be used in. Watch for DoT on the map carefully and you'll be fine.

Bait them to use burst on you, absorb it, return as BHS, teleburst and AA them to death. At least this how it was before nerfs. Now I can't repeat that because idunno... This just stopped working out.

Depends on what you build. Most Sentry's today play that AA build similar to video above. Teleburst build is the hardest one IMO but also very rewarding. BHS builds are meh. It is more of an utility than reliable damage source.

Today's META is Sentry+Smiles combo. Sentry+Nibbs is a meme but still kinda works.

The shield is dmg reduction, it's not a real shield.

I'm pretty sure Black Hole Sun's shield is a regular shield, just with a maximum to its absorb amount.
