Sentry bots are a type of robot encountered in Appalachia in 2102.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from Sentry bot. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The heaviest class of combat robot in the United States military, the sentry bot sacrifices speed and maneuverability for sheer resilience and overwhelming firepower. The sentry bot had become a standard piece of military equipment by at least 2063, with prototypes existing further back.[1] The assaultron is designed for melee combat, and the Mister Gutsy is a jack-of-all-trades. The sentry bot's purpose is to engage the enemy at range with a variety of weapons, including miniguns, Gatling lasers, rocket launchers, and even back-mounted cluster grenade launchers. At the same time, its thick armor and multiple redundant systems allow it to survive extended engagements. It's commonly considered to be one of the most dangerous robots ever created and RobCo Industries' finest fighting robot. Late models are also provided with the ability to self-destruct to prevent the enemy from recovering the robot.[2] Early sentry bot models were issued serial numbers in the SB-#### format (model, then serial), with later models transitioning to the standardized alphanumeric registration in the ABC-###### format.[3]

CharacteristicsEdit

The Appalachian variant of the sentry bot is identical to the variant of sentry bot used in the Commonwealth. They appear to have a bulkier construction and are substantially more resilient than their counterparts in the Capital and Mojave Wastelands. The typical weapons loadout of the sentry bot remains the same as seen in previous games, with a missile launcher and minigun being the norm (except these miniguns appear to be unique three barrelled variants chambered for the 5.56mm round). However, alternate weaponry configurations such as dual miniguns can also be observed.

On top of their already formidable ballistic and explosive weaponry, sentry bots have powerful melee attacks and a self-destruct function with equivalent power to a mini nuke. Despite their bulky armor and appearance, they are capable of moving stunningly fast and traversing extremely rough terrain (even scaling rocky outcrops with little difficulty that residents would struggle to jump up on). In addition; a sentry bot's entire torso is capable of rotating independently of its legs, functioning akin to a turret, and allowing it to move in one direction while shooting in a different direction (potentially against targets directly behind it). Sentry bots also appear to use Mecanum wheels that allow it to strafe right and left without having to turn.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Sentry bots are some of the rarest and the most difficult robots to defeat - fast, agile, heavily armed, and resilient enough to absorb a direct hit from a mini nuke. After losing both main weapons they will initialize their self-destruct sequence and charge at the player character. Even with their ranged weaponry intact, sentry bots often charge into close combat to deliver powerful blows with their arms if one ventures too close, thus deterring attackers from any use of melee weapons. Since all variants explode on death with the force of a mini nuke, this tactic may prove even more dangerous to their opponent than their devastating long-range firepower. However, should a sentry bot engage the player character for too long, they will eventually enter a cooldown period, blasting steam out of their back and exposing their dual fusion cores. Hitting exposed fusion cores is the best way to cause damage to them. After their death explosion, the sentry bot becomes a charred, blackened version of itself, and is safe to loot then for various scrap, ammo, and maybe a surviving fusion core.

Should one encounter a legendary sentry bot of any kind, keep in mind that all legendary robotic enemies explode upon death. This explosion does not override the sentry bot's built-in self-destruct, which means a legendary sentry bot will explode twice. Both explosions are equivalent to a mini nuke in power and occur with a short delay of a few seconds.

Hornwright security robotEdit

Hornwright security robot

An aggressive sentry bot, sometimes found at or near Hornwright air purifiers, as well as the Mount Blair trainyard. It is involved in the Battle Bot event quest, and holds security protocols.

Sentry bot strikebreakerEdit

Typically a hostile sentry bot, it is red in color and is most commonly found in the Ash Heap region. Can sometimes appear in Sentry Bot Patrol random encounters. Like the Hornwright security robot found in Battle Bot, it trades the machine guns for flamethrowers, spewing flames over a large range before being forced to stop to enter cooldown mode.
