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 ?

    He doesn't make it a piece of cake, but the nodes benefit him.

    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.

    He's an absolute god in V3. Seatin did an initial completion run with his R4 4* sentinel and he still did really well. Super good for the kang fight also if you need someone for that. Rank him and use him, you won't regret it for a second

    I used a lot 4* r5 sentinel, i ranked up him only for V3, with the node that buff him, he's able to end match quickly. He's also useful for his immunities

    I 100% explored with a 4* Sentinel who I used as much as my domino (fire synergy)
    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.

    He is most likely the best champ you can use to put it simply although I have tried out sl and he seems to be great in most fights as well!

    The big 3 champs imo for V3 are ghost, sparky, and sentinel. If you have one of these champions, you have enough fire power to get through the majority of paths, and the paths your champion can't handle can have a diverse 4* roster pick up the slack.

    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.

    He makes 95% of it cake, his ramp up time is halved and his damage is doubled and most difficult fights he’s the top option for

    I r4 him for v3 but he has legitimately become one of my favorite champs to play with. He duped as well so it makes building charges extremely easy
