Sentry Gun[]

SentryGun
XiphosTurret
Ordis delivers an automatic turret that will fire upon nearby visible enemies.
—In-game description

The Sentry Gun Air Support ability deploys a stationary Senta Turret. This turret possesses regenerative shields and spawns at a fixed level of 30. It fires DmgPunctureSmall64 Puncture energy projectiles with high fire rate, but have travel time and spread out considerably at distance.

  • Considering their fixed level spawn, inability to move, relatively long deployment cooldown and low Health, the summoned turrets' overall combat usefulness and survivability is inevitably going to fall behind as level scaling increases, and thus shouldn't be considered a reliable source of fire support. They can, however, be affected by a variety of abilities of team-affecting buffs and abilities, like many a friendly summoned entity, to mitigate their shortcomings, including (but not limited to):
    • Abilities affecting their damage output, like the Roar and Total Eclipse's damage-amplifying aura, or fire rate, such as Wisp's Haste Mote, allowing them to retain some usefulness into higher level ranges.
    • Abilities applying elemental infusions, like Nourish, or Augments, like Fireball Frenzy, Shock Trooper, Venom Dose or Smite Infusion. It should be noted that with a modest chance of triggering a matching elemental proc.
    • Abilities and effects affecting their total Health, healing them and providing them with Health regeneration like Wisp's Vitality Mote and Nidus' Ravenous, allowing them to sustain/regenerate more damage before being destroyed.
  • While the overall combat efficiency of the turrets is pretty lackluster (even in the case they have received some of the aforementioned buffs), they can be useful to track and "tag" towards mobs in scenarios where the level geometry or large amounts of particles clutter the screen make spotting them difficult: the turret's projectiles are rather bright, and the turrets themselves seem to be capable of partially ignoring line-of-sight and leveling geometry while locking onto a hostile mob.
  • The turret has its own collision box and acts as a physical obstruction which can be stood on top of. Amusingly, the collision box CAN be used to deploy more turrets on top of each other after the Air Support cooldown has elapsed, should one be able to keep the previous turrets alive long enough to do so.

Skins[]

Xiphos Skins can be applied through the Equipment > Orbiter > Landing Craft > Livery option. These skins do not consume decoration capacity.

Trivia[]

  • A Xiphos is a double-edged, one-handed shortsword used by the ancient Greeks. This follows the Scimitar's name also being derived from a type of sword.
    • In the game files, the Xiphos is known as "Gyroscope Ship," possibly due to the ship's construction having a passing resemblance to a gimbal.
