Basically, what people have said are:
  • Mix up your attack
  • Bait the SP1

But what other tips are out there?

    I prefer to bait the SP2 since it's easier to dex. Intercepting and letting them do their heavies (although, they seem to recover faster when WE can't)

    Class advantage saves you 90% of the headache

    6 dexterities means 5 points towards their count. And a full bar vs mystics

    BrutalDLX posted a good video of him using Will Power to gain health while fighting Sentinels. With Will Power, just evade the first part of the SP1 and allow yourself to get hit by the second part. The second part will do little damage and armor break you.

    At higher prestige levels this trick may not be worth it.

    Depends on which one. Armor break isn't so bad, but nullifies and concussion can really screw up a regen champ.

    Towards what count and a fully bar?

    Heavy hitters seem to work okay. Seems to be the plan I'm going with right now. Starlord has been my MVP. Get the fight over as fast as possible and mix up your combos. Hulk at lower health should work well too. Red hulk isn't a great idea because you really want to spam his special 1 with him.

    With AQ sentinels, they are so passive, I don't even bother trying to bait the L1. All the evades give them so many charges. I just mix up my combos and wail on them. Try to block/evade the L2 as best I can when they throw it. Even though they have three power bars, they cannot use the L3, so sometimes you can do quite a bit of damage between their specials.

    Medusa just melts them

    Beat him with a stick. Jk. I find baiting sp1 works best if you don't have specific champs

    This thread is from April and sentinels were harder to deal with when they first got introduced.
    They were nerfed after a lot of complaints

    Medusa or Nebula. Both can reduce ability accuracy in robots.

    Angela+ (Karnak)
    Sparky+-*
    Medusa*
    Nebula-*
    Psylocke-
    Iceman-
    Hood-
    Dormammu-
    Hyperion-

    + means Crit rate and damage naturally kill sentinel

    * means a natural anti-robot ability

    - alternative method of DoT that’s rematively easy to use.

    Top 4 should be common knowledge enough. Sparky and Angela deal enough damage naturally and have huge Crit rates. Medusa has her shatter and Nebula her shocks which both cripple robots

    Iceman and Hood have those Sp1 DoT shock and Hyperion has both huge damage and incinerate on speed dial


    Psylocke can build up charges for roughly 1k per charge when she uses heavy attack and can more or less reduce accuracy by a large margin

    Dormammu has his soul detonate

    (This is not a comprehensive list)

    If you don't have Medusa or other good cosmics Void works great, just take your time and let the debuffs drain him.
