New Heavyweight Arrives - The Sentinel

The official Sentinel has arrived (a reskinned Hawken with hot pink trim).  As for damage, Z2 didn't throttle back at all and are still posting this sucker at +17%,  all I have to say is HOLY SHIT!  At +17% this is BEST-IN-FLEET and BEST EVER RELEASED for damage.  A full 2% greater than the black eagle.  They did knock down Lock Range a little from the leaked version - it is now slightly lower than the black eagle but STILL, this is a hell of a weapons class plane.  Agility also downgraded some, now slightly lower than Hawken and Red Widow on Agility.   Armor is also lowered from leaked version, but this is still the only weapons class plane besides Paladin to bump up its armor.

Z2 has listened to some of the protests since the leaked version - the Sentinel is not TOO dominant, but don't be mistaken, this plane IS STILL VERY DOMINANT.  But, you'll have to ask yourself if you are willing to pay 205 coins plus all the upgrade costs - need to pick your favorites carefully if you have limited  cash.

The sentinel looks to pack the most punch of any weapons class plane in the fleet.   Hawken and others still will be better in the important missile reload speed category and have an edge with agility.  There are also other weapons class planes out there that have better lock accuracy.  But, as far as damage firepower, this is the new heavyweight in town, and as such, will have to be respected when met in the skies.

Not sure if I'm a big fan of the color scheme on this plane

  1. Cool, but I hate that they only give us a week to buy these planes now. And the last too they added to the normal catalog. I bought the last 2 so I'm wondering how much they cost now?

    3. What level do you need to unlock this plane.

  2. As an agility class person I'm looking for my first weapons class to try in versus but mainly for campaign and survival to see the difference. I'm still deciding to get this or the hawken. I'm leaning for the hawken simply because I can get it on credits and have plenty saved. Also I think the slight agility advantage and missle lock will play dividends in versus. Looking forward to hearing feedback on this plane of mass damage.

    1. Hawken is better. Even if not - try it first. For campaing missions missile reload speed is very useful.

      Delete
    2. You want to get the Hawken. I love mine for its agility, missle reload speed and beautiful paint scheme. The Sentinel is lacking all these.

      Delete
    3. I personally have both fully upgraded and they are both BEAST. I mostly use the Hawken because I mostly play Versus mode (since I already passed Campaign, my level hit the max at 45, and I have a ton of credits for ammunition) but the Sentinel is no plane to be overlooked. I think that it looks better and hits harder, although the extra agility and missile reload help a ton on the Hawken. I am still at a tie between these two, but it really depends on your gaming style. Bottom line: Hawken is amazing for Versus Mode while Sentinel is great at Campaign and Survival (is can be used for Versus but I don't recommend it because of its low agility and missile reload. ENJOY MY REVIEW

    4. Don't don't don't get it, whatever you do don't get the sentinel for verses matches. You will be owned by almost everything else flying. My personal experience flying against the sentinel is this: It was an even match, same weapons, and everything. The first time I flew against this person, I won 5-4, the second time I tied him 3-3, and the last time, I beat him 5-0. But hey, that's just my opinion. --AaronJC56

  3. Although I have not purchased this YET the hawken would be a great start. However the red widow (I think) is dominate to all others however in ur case you can't get it now. Think ur self lucky I bought my hawken at 75000 credits and my dragon at 63000... Times have changed

    1. I don't know if it is just my device or what, but my red widow reloads slower than my Hawken even when both are fully upgraded.any tips or tell me if it is like that to anyone else.

    2. Sounds like a placebo-induced belief :P
      I used to have the same feeling that my Spectre was slower than the Thresher when performing maneuvers, until I was eventually convinced after many survival games ><

    3. To see the difference try red widow first then try hawken. You'll see it's bait more faster than hawken.But if it remains slow.........Well,I guess I don't know.

      Delete
  4. Personally against higher SR players, I would recommend Hawken instead. While the dmg and lock range are impressive, I do not see the large difference between sentinel and the eagle. With the reduction in agility ( which is one of the most important stats for me in a dogfight ), I m afraid sentinel comes in second at best. Don't get me wrong, it's still a very gd plane, just don't think it's outrightly better than Hawken.

    On a side note, I don't think there is a best plane out there. Different planes have different advantages in different maps. Some planes are suited to certain maps than the others, although it boils down to the luck of the draw.

    1. I don't understand but why agility class planes have 3% armor regeneration upgrade while they should have agility or speed.Ah, well posted this comment tell you that in weapon class red widow and hawken are best,agility class Thresher is good and lastly in defense class arbiter or nightwing\achilles is better.

      Delete
  5. I bought the Sentinel today with a bunch of tapjoy coins. I can clean house against most players really well with the Vympel missles If I can start with some distance. If i'm in tight, and against a higher SR player, i have to work much harder, especially against a red widow or hawken to keep my backside from getting shot. I like the Sentinel, but the Hawken with the extra agility is still my first choice against any opponent.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I really wanted this plane hoping for another red widow or liberty type to go with my hawken. Well to be honest ... It's simply just ok...maybe I over hyped the thing before I got it. A lot of people jumped on it. So I took my tap joy reserve at spent it and upgraded it to the max ... Decent in survival mode but not as good as a m 11. Versus mode about 50/50 vs hawkens, eagles ... Lost a close one to a liberty and draw to a widow. I am much more dominant in a hawken. So much hype but lack luster in performance. Stick with what works...plane envy is a waste!!!!!

  7. Random tips and ways to get to wave 20
    Now I'm sure some of you are at that point of killing to reach wave 20 in survival mode. I in fact paired with my dragon and standard weapons can do it on my own and in fact I do it every day. I have reached wave 35. But back to the issue many face... How do I reach it? First of is the plane, many of you know different planes but don't truely realized what plane is best. I can narrow it down to 3. The dragon, the green eagle and the m11 raven. In most of ur cases the raven is you best bet to succes. Fully upgraded this bad boy can really hang in there. Wave 17-19 with a wingman down at 14-16. This brings out my second tip... Your partner. A wingman is good for mainly to reasons: helping you take down enemy jets and more importantly splitting the enemy's missle fire. Now I can remember playing survival mode over and over and over agian to find the right wingman. I met a guy named jakethesnake who encouraged me to buy a raven and together we made it. Now if ur that desperate just list ur game center bellow and I can get u there. Lastly the location. And yes it does matter. Most of the time u are in a dense mountain chain and it's climate changes ( desert, snowy, spring time) but at the most rare ocation the ocean blue. The ocean is a far easier way to play and I'll tell u why. In the mountains enemy's spwn

    1. Above the mountain peaks but in the ocean they spwn close to sea level. Now enemy's don't go any where untill they come to a certain distance to u or engage. At sea level you can lock on and fire opinion them with out being fired upon into it's to late. They don't have really much chance to go anywhere. Other tips and pointers: don't use paid weapons it's a waste it only speeds things up in the beginning and doesn't really make a huge impact in the long run. Be ready to use you cannons after wave 15! I'm out... Any desperate souls list ur game center below and I'll get u to 20!

      Delete
    2. I managed to reach lv25 with another Dragon wingman... but I'd be quite keen to play coop with you to improve my survival ranking. I can't imagine what it's like to reach lv 35... for me every level after lv20 is pretty hairy.

      Oh yeah, I've got a quick tip too... when things get tricky (and assuming u're using a regeneration plane), obviously try to kill as many enemy planes as quickly as possible at the start of a wave, to reduce the load of missiles comin ur way... however, when there is only 1 or 2 enemies left, keep them alive for a while to give u (and ur wingman) time to regenerate armour to the max before the next wave.

    3. I've said it before but StarCaller is right. At this point, with the Green Eagles not available, the M-11 is the best plane. I played for weeks and could not get past wave 20 with any wingman. Now I've made it 4-5 times. My top level is wave 24, mostly cause I'm on my own around 19-20. The M-11 doesn't have many advantages compared to other planes but it has the best armor regen of currently available planes. I can even take the M-11 into versus and at least get a draw with superior opponents.

  9. hello Starcaller , i am one of those desperate players who want to get past Wave 20 , but can't , primarly because i lose my wingman very often ( around 16_17); passed many times wave 19 in my dragon ( with stocks) , but then it becomes almost unbearable to survive to this wall of missiles that fall upon you , everytime i manage to shot 2 or 3 planes in wave 20 , but at the cost of 90% armor , and then i hear see incoming Again and 6 red Arrows , and i know I'm TOAST .....

    so yes i am interested to get a decent wingman who helps , i can even load some RAAMS ( although i think it's a complete Waste of ressource to shot Wave 3 planes with RAAM)...

  11. Hi guys! I've saved up enough coins for one of the latest aircrafts but now deciding to get a Sentinel or a Hawken... Hear many of you say that the Hawken is better?

    In that case should I go use the coins on a Reaper/Juggernaut instead? Or should I wait for the last 2 planes to be released? (I don't have any of the top-tier aircraft yet)

    Any tips would be appreciated thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah I've just bought the Sentinel... slightly regretting it. I think it is about on-par with the Hawken... winning or loosing against Hawkens with roughly equivalent weapons seems to depend mostly on performance.

      Given that, the Hawken is much more value for money, since it only costs credits.

      I wouldn't bother with the Juggernault... the Reaper is much better, and will likely remain better than the Dynasty when it's released (unless they beef up Dynasty stats significantly from the leaked version).

  15. Bought a Sentinel and it's soooo slow, that in my opinion it's worthless. Sure if you can find your opponent you can blast them, but personally speaking I wish I hadn't bothered with this. The extra agility of the Hawken gives it the edge. Still what was I expecting? With a name that means 'to stand guard and keep watch' it's only living up to it's name – standing still. I wish I could return this; what a waste of coins!

  16. Ok. I looked At the stats for the Hawken and the upcoming Helix. The Helix has more lock range, the same damage as the Hawken and very good missile tracking. But, the Hawken has more agility and Missile reload speed. So... Which one do you recommend that I get and upgrade fully ( I already have the Hawken but it is not upgraded much ) .

    ReplyDelete
  17. Being an agility plane lover and owning a reaper. I think if you got the skill and patience to put in the effort you will do well in versus. After purchasing the hawken yesterday I notice how much easier it is with a wpns class plane in survival and campaign with the dps it dishes out. It's always great to start a versus with some range to unload mass missiles at it but once your in close a skilled agility pilot always has the advantage. I think everyone with a wpns class plane with +10 agility should be thankful as I don't think another wpns class plane will ever have any,ore than that!

      SC, just wondering, which would you recommend for the Agility Class? Reaper/Spectre/Dynasty thanks!

      Delete
    6. Ok. You should most likely get the reaper because it is 1% greater in all areas of stats except for the armor. The Spectre only offers 6% energy which I don't see as making a major help. However who couldn't use some extra armor. I own the reaper myself and it is a monster fully upgraded. The only major difference between the two, is that the Spectre has a way cooler paint job.

      Delete
    7. Sorry. I was wrong about the 6% energy difference, it was actually a 12% difference. Still, my opinion has not changed.

  18. Thanks to Thefatrollpollyman. I own the reaper myself as well. And my SR has went up exponentially with it. I will take your advice an d upgrade the Hawken for survival and campaign.

  19. An upgraded Hawken is deadly!!!! It can give any plane a run. Everyone jumps on these new planes but ALWAYS comes back to their hawken....unless they re-issue the red widow or green eagle I'm simply going with what works...F-51 Hawken! I wasted on all 3 new planes...reaper, juggernaut and sentinel ... Only the reaper has potential. I keep practicing agility dog fights but I am a weapons plane pilot the hawken spoils you!

  21. Went head to head vs a Sentinel with my Hawken. Same guy, 5 matches. I got him with 3 wins to his 2...but I barely flew out of the last battle (actually flew away from him stalling the timer down to 0 holding 1 kill over his head...). Pretty close battle, but after everything being said and done - having a Sentinel would only hold its ground as a novelty item. It is very difficult to justify 205 coins on a Sentinel when the Hawken can hold its ground vs. a Sentinel, and possibly have the edge with the agility in hand.

    1. Hawken has 4 % agility Bonus BUT Sentinel has better Lock Range, Batter Cannoning, Missiling ability...

      SENTINEL... you won perhaps you have better skills OR Upgrades.

  22. Given the hype before release, I must say the Sentinel is a disappointment. I mean it is a good plane, but I think it's inferior to a Hawken unless you use Vympel missiles all the time (it is brutally effective with Vympels at range.) Using Lancers and other lower tier missiles, the Sentinel doesn't have the fire-rate to beat Hawkens at range, or the agility to beat them close up.

    After waiting so long for my first Weapons Class top tier plane, I find I still perform best with my good ol' Dragon in versus mode, not to mention survival.

  25. Yes, and it's actually quite funny how many people I've seen fire missles before they have even locked on. Not to mention firing both missles at the same time. If you seperate them by 1-2seconds I bet 90% of the time they won't dodge the next one instead of dodging both (especially bisnos +50% speed FML!)

  27. Got the Sentinel and frankly, it's a disappointment , less effective than my Red Widow. It's ok if your opponent is inexperienced and 'stands off' but more savvy pilots will close the gap quickly and you simply can't compete on agility or rate of fire. I reckon I'm just about done with this game now, on versus mode I only seem to get matched against far more experienced players so whereas I used to win enough to keep me interested, now I rarely do.

    1. I recently bought the Sentinel (with Tapjoy coins)and when I first played with it I was slightly disappointed.

      However, I got used to its upsides and downsides and I must admit that this plane is one astonishingly powerful son of a bitch. Even tough, Z2 Live downgraded it, this plane is still fairly dominant. To support my p.o.v. I have kicked the ass of several players who had 20K rating and over with RAAMs and basic Vulcan (even one with 55K). My rating... 11K, 1180 games played and 70% win average.

      My point is:
      1. don't shit on your plane if you don't know how to play
      2. there is no point to buying $ expensice bisnovats and vympels. Real players are satisfied with credits missiles

  34. The Kid on the blogMarch 22, 2012 at 7:50 AM

    Hi,
    As this is my first post, I want to say thank you and congratulations, because it is a great blog. It provided me with a lot of informations, especially about the upgrade system and the differences between planes. Thanks to this blog, I ended up realizing the differences between planes classes. My only complain would be that the section dedicated to techniques and tips for versus games may be more developed in my opinion.
    I want to get on my soap box and say that the Sentinel is a great plane and that I do not understand why some post comments that are rather negative about it. Maybe some of them need a little reality check :-)
    For long I have been rather an "agility plane player". A few months ago, I bought a Zephyr and fully upgraded it. As I did not have any "first class" or upgraded weapon class plane in my hangar, I could hardly imagine how my Zephyr would compare to such kind of plane. I know that some will say that the Zephyr may not be the best agility plane, but it is still a good one - especially when fully upgraded. So I kept happy with my Zephyr that I used for all versus games, but also campaign and survival games.
    Recently I used most of my savings to buy the Sentinel and it blew me away. The rest of my coins were spent to upgrade it (it is fully upgraded since yesterday, yeah!!). At first, I had to get familiar with the maneuvrability and agility, which were of course lower than those of my Zephyr. But rapidly, I was able to defeat many opponents (most often playing with Hawken or black eagle which are very popular) that kicked my ass before. In a few days, my level raised from about 2500 to more than 3000... and I switched from the Bisnos that I used before to credit missiles. I also found a big advantage when playing campaign missions (I always play missions with standard missiles/cannons) as it was much easier to destroy resistant targets such as boats.
    I do not have a Hawken or a Red Widow, so I cannot say which is the best in this class... The Hawken might be better for close combat, but it is a given that the difference in damages (17% vs 10%) is significant. In addition, the extra lock range of the Sentinel is very useful when starting the battle or when you or your opponent re-appears right after being destroyed. The agility (+6%) is far to be as poor as some said and the extra armor can also make a difference. The Red Widow may be considered intermediate between the Hawken and the Sentinel. Overall, there is no doubt for me that Sentinel, Hawken and Red Widow are the three best weapon planes. I have absolutely no regrets to have bought the Sentinel rather than the Hawken... and the Red Widow is unfortunately no longer available.
    Now I have to start my savings for scratch... and I would really like to buy a "Green Eagle like" plane (with extra-regenaration) in the future to have a great defense plane. Hope that they will make such a plane available.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Its never really about the plane but the player piloting it. Honestly ... The better the plane and the weapons the MORE reliant the fighter becomes. I pilot a hawken and I'm 65% in versus top 5% all time...I notice the best pilots are in annihilators and wraiths with stock ... Man that's how to fly....so I recently maxxed out my annihilator am learning to really fly. No bisno no Zeus...boots to @$$e$ bitches!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. You are probably true... but there is still a big difference between plane categories. The difference may be less marked for planes in a same class. I am by far less experimented than you are... and no doubt that you would kick my ass whatever the planes we could have! Anyway, I feel better and I win more games with my Sentinel rather than with my Zephyr. I am not saying that weapon planes are better than agility planes, it probably depend on your style. One size does not fit all :-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Kid don't sell yourself short...on any given day...I've waxed pilots with over 10K SR in a widow and turn around to lose to a noob in a hawken w bis / Zeus. So...you never know. It's all about how you like to pilot ...quick w canons or slugging it out w missles. Its always good to switch it up. If you like that sentinel man you should take a hawken for a ride...

    Does anyone know if they will re issue the Red Widow or Green Eagle?

    Since the Spectre is coming back out ... I figure they may re issue other planes too

    ReplyDelete
  38. Do NOT sell this plane short!!!!! If you are in the mood to SLUG it out then this is the plane to use. As agile as a hawken in tight...better long range than an eagle...and it packs the heaviest punch out there...the extra 5% armor helps out too. I got really stale in the hawken and I'm not quite good enough for reapers or Spectre...so currently my plane of choice. Zeus or Apollo cannons are lethal w damage bonus...armed w lancers or BISNOs....it can open a serious can of whoop @$$ on opponannents. 7K sr ... 55% win rate ... So still a noob...

  39. Do you mean that you switched from Hawken to Sentinel? What is your take on these two planes when fully upgraded? Would be interested to know if you really felt significant differences in your hands (agility, missile reload, etc...)? Probably it's not huge...
    Some folks here gave a strong opinion on how these planes compare, but most of them have probably not tried each with similar upgrade. So your feedback might be of great value.
    7K is repectable... especially for a modest 3K like me :-)

  40. Yes...really close...middle weight and heavy weight... I like to slug it with missle warfare and finish w cannons...the sentinel fits my style with the added armor...the re load bonus in a hawken is awesome though...you can spray 4 missles in a grid to trap an agility plane or pop a defense plane w a ton of damage...again it depend on your personal style

  41. I've got most major class planes like Reaper,Hawken,Spectre,Juggernaut,Thresher,Eagle-X...etc but fight with Sentinel is much easy to win in VS mode. If u r not using coin weapon then extra DMG of Sentinel give you a very comfort in VS mode.

  43. Star caller I really need credits can you help me out because I can only reach wave 8 in my nearly upgraded U-9 Raider. Please help me out if so which plane would be better for survival mode F-105 Dragon or Hawken Eagle X or Setinel. Which one of them is better because I wanted you to bring the 'best' plane in the fleet.

    1. The Dragon is by far the best of what you named for Survivior. With missile resist and armor regen, it will take beyond wave 20. Attack class planes are great in versus and even Campaign, but without armor regen they get worn down by the continual missile hits. With regen you can fly around in a tight circle where they can't hit you as much until your armor builds back up. Also even a Raven will do much better than an attack class plane. That's what I used to build up credits to buy the Dragon.

  44. The comment 2 comments above is by me. And I can't buy because I'm not really a skilled player. Because I only started playing this in March 2012. Oh and I've just recently bought the F-51 Hawken and I think it's a really good plane. Anyways I only have 41 coins and I figured there's hardly none offers that are free and give you more then 20 coins. And I'm a cheapskate because I only do free offers. But personally I thing the X-23 Nightwing in the new version 4.1.1 is one of the best. There's not really a best plane but about 80% of planes in there are good.

    1. Best Planes are with Best Pilots . Generic : is Sentinel For Weapon , Iron Fange for Agility and NightWing for defense are Technically Superior.... Agility Planes have Better of chances of winning , followed By Weapons and Defense..

      Now Sentinel has a Combination of Weapons, Defense and Agility... Do Fly Sentinel like Hawken.. Need To be alert to avoid DOGFight with Hawken and Try to Lock It early... No Need for Coin Missiles.. Just Use RAAM Power and avoid being Hit By Cannons..


      Good Luck Champ!
