Respawn Entertainment

In celebration of the one year anniversary of Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment revealed some upcoming changes that will be included in the Season Four patch on February 4th, 2020. Aside from the new character Forge, a new bolt-action sniper rifle is making its way into the game.

Apex Legends Sentinel Weapon Overview

The Sentinel is a new bolt action sniper rifle. In the words of executive producer Drew McCoy, “It feels really powerful. It’s got that cool animation when you cock it back. It’s a little different than our other sniper rifles because it has a charge mechanic.”

Not much else was said about this new weapon, although McCoy did hint at a delay between shots which is to be expected from a bolt action sniper. This weapon was initially uncovered by a data miner in early December but not many details were found.
