The Sentry carries the heaviest body armor of all elite classes, providing around 83% damage reduction on the torso, arms, and head, against all firearms, and complete protection from melee weapon hits, though from the front only.

    Sentries can only be taken down with a melee from the rear.

    Unless of course you're using the bayonet charge.

    Oh and also when they are on low health.

    Ive had many bayonet charges fail from the front. Actually, I dont remember ever getting any from the front. You sure its possible?

    100% certain bayonet charges work from the front. I do it almost on a dialy basis and never had one fail, only way I can see that happening is if you are killed just as you reach them or your charge stops right as you approach them.
    OP - Don't forget your AT gun if you are assault, one well aimed shot and the sentry is history.

    Then what is up with this video? The sentry is killed from the front.

    Sentry was on low health and can be taken down from the front only in instances of low health.

    That doesn`t sound like immunity to me.
