+1 for AWESOMENESS, it's back.
P.S. if you COULD, make it's operational when the power ran out, for like the old MG, semi-fire only.

I grabbed the sentry from the locker, first one to it - bag was missing the gun and targeting sensor.

100% first person to get it. Any ideas?

There should be an crate, containing needed material.

Um, it's in a vendor, not in a locker. You probably got a discarded crate.

Also, they now have friendly fire checks, like a smartgun.

They can also be moved, with a screwdriver.

I would imagine the gun deals high damage per round considering its very low rate of fire, well I would imagine. I once saw a Sentry Gun miss multiple consecutive shots at a queen near point blank range though.

Two shots of that can nearly down a runner. I like this gun. Also changes the tactics of aliens when they attack marines.

Updated the first post.

Keep in mind the burst fire vs. single shot. Burst is really best if you only have one or two marines around watching it; it'll mow down just about any target fairly quickly or spray an area rapidly if there's multiple targets. Single shot is best if there are plenty of marines around to mop up any xenos who are trying to fake the sentry out by hiding around a corner.

I'll call those Squad Engineer, out. Who the fuck put sentry on top of the drop-ship, it look shit *useless :\.
And that's coming from round where the turret ran out of power. :\

Hm, thanks for telling me that, I don't really notice those things, and yes, some IC Marines should monitor those, are IF possible, get them remap.

Question- will any ID do, or the gun sees the discrepancy and opens fire?

There were a few round where the turret would open fire on key personel. HInt: Don't stand in front of them.

For the people who don't like turning turret on and off all the time to conserve power, come by research and get super-capacity power cells instead of the regular plain cell that come in the crate with turret.

You can fire the gun in manual mode if it's off, if I understand your question correctly.

Allow me to clarify, there is a mode that says "safety toggle". What this historically did was stop it from shooting if there was a friendly unit between the sentry and its target. This option became obsolete when they added the IFF system to the sentry. I'm just wondering if having it on still stops it from shooting when an ally is in the way.

You turn it off and can shoot the turret in manual mode, not sure it bypasses friendlies, but I think it does.
