In-Game Description
"This ultra-giant size missile tank was created in cooperation with Mars People. Gen. Morden himself is aboard."
Iron Sentinel MSA idle

The Iron Sentinel is the most difficult unit to obtain within Metal Slug Attack, only available for purchase via the Mars Shop.

As Mars Currency can only be obtained by trading in platinum evolved units, it is unlikely for low level players (and free players) to obtain the Iron Sentinel. While the Iron Sentinel has unique items (as with most boss-type units), most of these items can also be bought from the shop.

The Sentinel itself is a very large multi-treaded tank that shoots missiles and projectiles from its ball turret. If MSA Skill small + 4 is unlocked, upon reaching 0 health, it will convert into a second form that shoots even larger missiles with a wide area of effect and dealing much more damage.

The Sentinel is rarely used, since it typically struggles against lower AP cost units like Yoshino, who can defeat it with ease in a one-on-one fight.

Attacks

Long Range

Attribute grenade Missile (Spread) Launches a salvo of missiles from its side. If in second form, shoots out very large missiles.

Special

Attribute grenade Big Missile (Spread) Fires larger missiles from its main turret, and bombs from its side.

Items

The Iron Sentinel uses a selection of unique items unavailable to any other units. Like the parts for the Sentinel itself, these can only be obtained via the Mars Shop (or fused using other items from the same).

Purchase Cost

In order to obtain parts for the Iron Sentinel, surplus parts from platinum-framed units must be traded in at the Mars Shop:

1,000 points are required per Sentinel part. Hence:

  • 1,000x Unit Parts (Normal) grants one Sentinel part.
  • 100x Unit Parts (Rare) grants one Sentinel part.
  • 25x Unit Parts (Super Rare) grants one Sentinel part.

Building on that:

  • 80,000x (Normal parts), 8,000x (Rare parts), or 2,000x (Super Rare parts) grants a silver Sentinel.
  • 180,000x (Normal parts), 18,000x (Rare parts), or 4,500x (Super Rare parts) grants a gold Sentinel.
  • 330,000x (Normal parts), 33,000x (Rare parts), or 8,250x (Super Rare parts) grants a platinum Sentinel.

Furthermore, various items for the Sentinel must also be purchased using Mars Points:

  • 900x (Normal parts), 90x (Rare parts), or 23x (Super Rare parts) grants the first skill.
  • 6,500x (Normal parts), 650x (Rare parts), or 163x (Super Rare parts) grants the second skill.
  • 71,500x (Normal parts), 7,150x (Rare parts), or 1,788x (Super Rare parts) grants the third skill.
  • 221,500x (Normal parts), 22,150x (Rare parts), or 5538x (Super Rare parts) grants the fourth skill.
  • 1,121,500x (Normal parts), 112,150x (Rare parts), or 28,038x (Super Rare parts) fills the fifth panel set.

1,451,500 Mars Points are required to fully evolve and equip an Iron Sentinel (or 36,288 Super Rare unit parts). On the other hand, a silver Sentinel with only the first four skill panels unlocked costs a relatively low 80,000 + 221,500 = 301,500 Points (7,538 SR parts).

One can easily gain massive amounts of the items by hoarding up Battle/Guild Medals and Gold Bars from Battles, Guilds and P.O.W. Rescue. From the respective shops, buy only Super Rare unit parts (e.g Stone Turtle, Leona, etc.), as they provide the best ratio for Iron Sentinel parts compared to Rare and Normal rarity units. It is even better to purchase the Super Rare unit parts during a discount event, where the items are sold at 30% off their original price (so the parts would cost 350 of their respective currency). Since waiting for the stores to restock manually can be time consuming and unnecessary, it is best to continually refresh the stores' stocks and purchase Super Rare unit parts. This will cost much more currency though.

Trivia

  • The Iron Sentinel is instead referred to as the "Iron Slider" within Metal Slug Attack's code. Its sprite sheet portrays the original Slider from Metal Slug 6, angled downhill - the game rotates its images to a levelled orientation at run-time.
