AI turret go BRRRR with the powerful Warzone Sentry Gun killstreak during the Black Ops Cold War era of the battle royale.

 The Sentry Gun killstreak is no longer available in Call of Duty Warzone because the Black Ops Cold War version of the game was shut down. However, this guide will be updated and will come in handy if the Sentry Gun and its associated unlock challenge ever return.

Call of Duty: Warzone got another new killstreak in the Black Ops Cold War Season 4 Reloaded update, and while it was new to the battle royale, it had been a staple part of Call of Duty’s multiplayer modes for years: the Sentry Gun.

This deployable turret automatically locked onto enemies out in the open and filled them with bullets, either helping you to secure an elimination or being the perfect distraction for a sneaky getaway. As the sentry gun was quite a powerful killstreak for Warzone, you could not simply snap one up from a Buy Station.

However, with Warzone’s integration with Black Ops Cold War and its arsenal now over, the Sentry Gun killstreak is no longer available in the battle royale. With that said, we wouldn’t be too surprised to see it return in the future, so this trip to the past could come in handy.

How to get the Sentry Gun in Warzone

There were a couple of methods to getting the Sentry Gun killstreak in Warzone during Black Ops Cold War Season 4. The first, and the most preferred way for most players, was to find yourself a Red Door.

As well as Durable Gas Masks and Advanced UAVs, Sentry Guns had a very high chance of dropping from crates that were in one of the Red Door stations. This was fairly straightforward too, as they were guaranteed to spawn in all 30 of the Warzone Red Door locations at the time.

Remember though, that once a lobby collectively used Red Doors ten times, they would all despawn and disappear. This meant you had to get to one as early as possible.

The second way was far less reliable, but could still earn you a Sentry Gun. As part of the Season 4 Reloaded update, the Killchain perk got a significant change to make it more viable. Anyone running Killchain had the chance to obtain any of the potential killstreaks from loot crates, so you were able to pull a Sentry Gun out of any old loot box you came across.

This was also the case if you picked up a Specialist Token, which awarded you with all perks.

Again though, it’s no longer possible to get your hands on this powerful piece of kit since its removal alongside Black Ops Cold War from Warzone’s current content offerings.

Nevertheless, that was how you could get your hands on the Sentry Gun in Warzone during Black Ops Cold War Season 4. This killstreak was perfect for its ability to get you out of a tough spot or fend people away from your favourite camping spot.
