Steam’s popular free-to-play game, Team Fortress 2, is played by millions of people around the world. Although it’s completely different than Minecraft in just about every way, one modder has decided to combine the two gaming worlds together with the Team Fortress 2 Sentry Gun mod for Minecraft.
This mod adds three different sentry gun models to the Minecraft world. Team Fortress 2 also has three sentry gun models, and these models are upgraded by engineers to become more powerful.
Players start out with the lowly single-shot turret which deals low damage to nearby targets. Next, players can upgrade to the dual Gatling gun turret sentry, which kills enemies faster before automatically searching for its next target. And finally, the most powerful model includes rocket launchers over top of two Gatling guns. These rockets zoom towards enemies as they approach and deal massive damage.
In addition to adding sentries into the game, the Team Fortress 2 Sentry Gun mod adds a unique menu that pops up when hovering the cursor over the player’s sentry gun. This menu will be familiar to anyone who has played TF2 before, and it shows how many kills that gun has earned as well as the ammunition remaining in that gun. It’s a small touch, but it helps bring a little piece of Team Fortress 2 to the Minecraft world.
Players also get a wrench that they can use to upgrade sentries, and there are even different types of wrenches that heal sentries at a faster rate.
When sentries are destroyed, they drop level one sentries. So unless you want to constantly scavenge for sentry gun parts, it’s in your best interest to protect your sentries or place them in wide open locations where they can easily acquire nearby targets.
Unfortunately, mobs that are killed by sentry guns don’t cause players to gain XP. So if you’re thinking of setting up dozens of sentry guns and watching the kills roll in, then that’s not going to work with this mod.
However, one of the coolest features with the Team Fortress 2 Sentry Gun mod is the ability to tell the sentry to watch out for certain types of mobs. You can tell it to only target skeletons, for example, or tell it to target all types of mobs that approach.
You don’t have to be a fan of Team Fortress 2 to appreciate this mod. Download it today to start protecting your home from evil mobs!
