The Sentinel Beam is a weapon in the Halo franchise. It is an oddly-shaped laser gun built by the Forerunners, and often wielded by Sentinels.
The weapon appears to be the only usable Forerunner weapon in the trilogy.
This weapon can kill most targets quickly, as with many laser weapons.
Halo Combat Evolved Edit
This weapon is wielded by Sentinels. The player cannot use this weapon, as none are laying around. Also, you cannot pick one up from a broken Sentinel.
Halo 2 Edit
The weapon is now usable in Halo 2. The weapon can kill players quickly.
The weapon fires an orange energy beam. It drains its battery rapidly. It will overheat due to continuous fire.
This is only available in the map Backwash - the swamp map.
Halo 3 Edit
The Sentinel Beam is also usable in Halo 3. It has changed very little since the previous incarnation.
Halo Wars Edit
The weapon is used by Sentinels and Super Sentinels. Strangely, the weapon does not fire in a continuous beam.
Halo 2 Anniversary Edit
The weapon's Halo 2 Anniversary incarnation stays true to the classic counterpart.

- In Halo 2 Anniversary, the player character will throw a punch if you press B while wield this weapon.
- This weapon's battery depletion rate is 5 charge per second.
- This weapon is similar to the Phasers from Star Trek.
