Halo Infinite has no shortage of cool weapons and gear, and the Sentinel Beam is high on that list. The weapon was first implemented in Halo 2, and now it’s back and even more powerful than before. It won’t be easy to obtain though. You’ll have to defeat a high-level opponent and all his goons before you can wield it yourself. Read on to find out how to unlock the Halo Infinite sentinel beam.
How to Unlock The Sentinel Beam
Infinite has introduced the Arcane Sentinel Beam, the Sentinel Beam’s supercharged big brother. With this bad boy in your arsenal, you’ll be mowing down enemies faster than you can reload.
First, you’ll have to venture near the northern part of the map to find Thav ‘Serabim. A fearsome Covenant commander who reigns over the area and has taken countless human lives. His location is already marked on the map, but he’s waiting near the excavation site if you need a landmark for reference.
You’ll find him mounted on his Ghost, yelling taunts at you as he zooms around the battlefield. It can be pretty hard to catch up to him, so bringing your Ghost would be a good idea, as It offers great mobility and a reliable gun to fire away with. Thav ‘Serabim will sick his henchmen on you, so be prepared to defend yourself against multiple enemies.
They’ll be quite a nuisance to deal with, so taking out his underlings while chipping away at Thav’s health would be a sound strategy. When you take most of them out, show the Covenant commander no mercy!
If you brought a Ghost with you, it may get pretty beat up with all the incoming fire. Here’s a tip, use your Grappleshot to hook onto the vehicles of Thav’s grunts. When you get close enough, take the driver out and hijack it for yourself! You’ll have a fresh Ghost to combat them with.
From there, all you have to do is rinse and repeat until it’s just you and the guy greedily keeping the Arcane Sentinel beam all to himself. He won’t be so tough all by his lonesome!
How Strong is the Sentinel Beam?
As stated earlier, the Arcane Sentinel Beam is one of the strongest guns in the game. You can get multiple kills just by pointing it in one direction, as the enemy behind the one you’re shooting will get vaporized as soon as the first one goes down.
Hold down the fire button to release a sustained beam. But your aim better be on point, as this gun burns through ammunition like it’s nothing. It has a magazine size of 250, but don’t let that number trick you into thinking that beam will last a while.
The gun is also not very stable. The recoil will cause your aim to drift upward if you don’t control it, and that can cause problems in the middle of a battle. To wield the Sentinel Beam effectively, you’ll have to practice centering your aim as it begins to wander.
But none of these outweigh the sheer power of the Arcane Sentinel Beam. Not only is it one of the cooler-looking guns, but it’s also guaranteed to obliterate those foolish enough to stand in your way!
That is everything you need to know about the Sentinel Beam and how to obtain it. Have you gotten the Sentinel Beam yet? What is your favorite thing about it?
