In Sentry mode, Bastion is a stationary powerhouse equipped with a gatling gun capable of unleashing a hail of bullets. The gun's aim can be "walked" across multiple targets, dealing devastating damage at short to medium range.
Default Key: (PC LMB, PS R2, XB RT)


Bastion becomes a stationary turret in this configuration, losing its basic movement ability. Bastion is armed with a gatling gun that deals approximately 525 damage per second. The spread reduced by up to 33% the longer Bastion fires. Furthermore, its gun does not inflict headshot damage.

Bastion's defense in Sentry configuration is significantly tougher, under the influence of Ironclad passive ability, which gives it 20% reduction of incoming damage.

While in this configuration, Bastion also has a weak point on its back in the shape of a blue-glowing cube. Successful attacks here will deal double damage to Bastion. In case of Widowmaker, however, her scoped shot will deal 2.5 times damage instead.
