The definitive guide for wiping out sentinels when you’re still a n00b
Wipe them off the face of the Earth
Want to totally wipe out sentinels on a planet but don’t have a cloak yet or other advanced weapons? Read on then. Just note that I am not sure if this would be considered a glitch or not. It has to do with how the AI functions when you enter buildings.
Here’s how it works:
Go to a planet you want to wipe out sentinels on. Planets labeled “aggressive sentinels” for example are a good candidate. Piss one of them off near a base you can enter and hide. Get them alerted and let the first wave come to you.
Stand in the doorway just enough so that you are technically inside the building but you can still shoot out of it. Start taking down the sentinels with a boltcaster or mining laser starting with the little healer drones. Keep doing this for a while. Some of the sentinels will come into the building. That’s fine. They stop noticing you when you and/or they are in the building.
If you need to recharge your shield hide in the building for a bit. This is basically all you have to do. Eventually you get the dog drones and the mechs. They’re harder because their lasers can hit you but they can still be easily defeated this way. After a while you’ll beat all the waves and sentinels will be disabled on the planet and you can head to the sentinel pillar on the map to grab your reward.
