Sentinel Snipers are a variant of Aggressor Sentinel.[1]

Overview[edit]

History[edit]

These sentinels were deployed on Installation 07, where they took part in the conflict between the UNSC and the Banished under the direction of Monitor Adjutant Resolution.[2]

Gameplay[edit]

Sniper Sentinels appear in Halo Infinite, starting from the level The Sequence, where they can be found roaming the overworld. In subsequent levels, they can be deployed from Sentinel launchers.

Sniper Sentinels travel in pairs or alongside other Sentinels, providing a fire support role. They hover in the air looking for an angle from which to fire on the player, then stand still for a couple of seconds before shooting one or two shots with their Sicatt Workshop shock rifle. After this, they reposition themselves and start anew. Like other Sentinels, when they are the last of their group, Sniper Sentinels overload emitting a loud noise, then charge the player to engulf them into an explosion.

Sentinel Snipers are vulnerable to electric weapons, especially their own Shock rifles, so turn them against them whenever you encounter them. They also take more damage when shot in the eye. Their eye glints briefly before they shoot; use this as a signal to take cover.
