A new glitch in Apex Legends allows players to instantly charge Sentinel
Something has not gone according to plans with Apex Legends’ newest update. The recently-released Spellbound Collection Event brought lots of changes, one of which was reducing the number of shield cells required to charge the Sentinel to one, from two.
However, players have found a new glitch where you can charge the Sentinel without having any shield cells. One Redditor has even published a video on the Apex Legends subreddit where he demonstrated it all in the Firing Range.
All the players needed to perform this glitch is a Gold Shield. In the clip, we saw the player picking up a Gold Shield from the floor, and then picking up the Sentinel from the weapons rack. The player even showed his inventory, and apart from the weapon, Light Ammo, P2020, and Gold Shield, it had nothing.
Then, we saw the player charge the Sentinel, as players normally can do. The only difference was that normally, the players need to have Shield Cells in their inventory, but it was not the case here. As there were no shield cells in the inventory.
The player even went on to shoot the dummy targets, and the damage numbers do indicate that it has indeed been charged.
How Sentinel normally works?
Sentinel is a bolt-action sniper rifle that the players can play with in Apex Legends. This weapon is unique, as it is one of those guns which can be charged to increase its effectiveness in fights. The charging process takes 5 seconds, and once charged, the damage gets increased by 25% for 120 seconds, with each shot reducing the duration by 15 seconds.
For charging the Sentinel, you need Shield Cells. Previously, it needed two Shield Cells, however, following the release of the Spellbound Collection Event, several changes and updates were brought to the game. One of these changes reduced the number of required Shield Cells to one, instead of two.
However, it seems that something went south with these new updates, and now there is a glitch using which you can charge the Sentinel without requiring any Shield Cells whatsoever. So, you can charge the Sentinel for free using this glitch.
Sentinel is a powerful sniper rifle of Apex Legends, which also has a unique charging mechanism. Normally, you need Shield Cells for charging, however, with this new glitch, if you have a Gold Shield, then you can charge it without requiring any Shield Cells.
