The Lance Sentry (ingame name Peitsivartija) is a large robotic sentry mainly found in The Vault. It has a thrown lance attack that deals heavy damage and extreme knockback, which can send the player flying several screens away unless stopped by terrain.
Behaviour & Combat[edit | edit source]
As all robotic enemies, it heavily armored and resistant to most attacks. Due to its large size, it has a problem fitting into tight spaces and can usually be shaken off rather easily by a fleeing player. If it sees the player, it will give chase and throw its lance when at medium range (about half a screen). If it takes a lot of damage at once, it may flee.
The most effective tactic against them is the same as with all robots, which is to use either explosive or electrical damage as they are vulnerable to both. Failing that, projectiles that deal a lot of damage in a single hit is preferable to fast-firing low damage wands. Just remember to keep your distance to avoid getting hit with their lance attack. Melee is not recommended.
