How much of a help is Sentinel in Variant 3 ?

I pulled this dude today as a 5* and I used my 5* tech AG on him, because I have always wanted to have him. I have heard he can help with V3, but I don't know how much. Does he make V3 a piece of cake ? Or is it just useful champion ? Or sth between ?
Nodes (that impact Sentinel):
All classes but Tech attack reduce by 50%
Sentinel gains analysis charges faster.
Honestly if you have some hard hitting champs, they might be more useful than sentinel.
As a 5* he would be insane, he literally doubles his damage in V3 per hit as soon as you hit 100 Analysis charges (takes less than a minute).
Watch Seatin's initial completion to see exctly what I mean.
One thing is though his back draft and his intercepts feel a bit different and almost clunky - would definitely practice using him before going into V3 boosted etc.
That said, I consider sentinel the best option of the 3, as while he can handle about as many paths as the other 2, he does so with very minimal cost, with a lower skill requirement.
I run 2 accounts, one own's a r4 sentinel, on own's a r5 sparky. I have 100% variant on each, and I preferred the experience with sentinel, and can only imagine how easy it is with a r5 sentinel. An example of sentinels strength is (on the account with r5 sparky) my best option to one shot bio hazard korg was 4* setinel (who btw i had still been bringing alongside sparky in almost every chapter) 4* Sentinel was also my best option to deal with bleed collosus and regen kang.
