"Marine, if you run across any operational Sentry Bots, use them. Those guys pack a lot of firepower."

A Sentry Bot.

The Sentry Bot is a small, dog-sized security robot consisting of a robotic "head" walking on four spider-like legs. It is used in all places of Mars City in Doom 3. Each Sentry Bot is equipped with a powerful Machine gun and a Flashlight. They were constructed by Mixom Corporation for the UAC. However, there were many problems with them. For example, a UAC employee was almost killed by a Sentry Bot, because it had a system failure. Fortunately, a nearby marine managed to disable it.

At the beginning of the game they can be seen in the Marine HQ. One Sentry Bot will lead the player to the Mars City Underground elevator. When the demons invade the base, most of the Sentry Bots are destroyed. If you find one, it will help you fight the demons. Sentry Bots make excellent allies; their standing is about on par with the more elite demons such as the Revenant or Chaingun Commando, and they can easily mow through groups of several Z-Sec soldiers or Imps. In Resurrection of Evil, however, they can be overwhelmed and destroyed by multiple Revenants, or by Hell Knights in The Lost Mission.

Sentry Bots can harm the player with friendly fire if they get between them and an enemy they are firing upon. As a result, it is adviseable not to engage in close combat with enemies when escorted by a Sentry.

Sentry Bots can be found in Mars City, the Enpro Plant, and Communications Tower. In Resurrection of Evil they can be found in Erebus Monorail Station and the Phobos Complex.
