A semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle capable of inflicting massive damage to Titans for each hit, chambered in 14.5x114mm DU penetrator APFSDS, designated Keter. The high-explosive 20x102mm as well as other 20mm rounds with varying payloads is officially listed as "experimental" by the IMC, but it has been deployed in several missions.
Semi-automatic heavy anti-materiel rifle.
In-game short description
The Sentinel Anti-Titan anti-materiel rifle, designated as R-2818 "Black Widow", or simply known as Sentinel-AT AMR is a recoil-operated, electromagnetically-actuated, bullpup semi-automatic anti-materiel sniper rifle developed by the Lastimosa Armory, first appeared in Titanfall 3. Despite its designation as an anti-Titan weapon, it is used by some armed forces as an anti-aircraft/anti-personnel sniper system. It is chambered for 14.5x114mm DU penetrator APFSDS, designated Keter though it can also be chambered for 20x102mm and the new 25x82mm payload rounds including the TPA-based high-explosive incendiary and the thermite-based incendiary rounds, designed to burn down both Pilots and Titans.
It has a unique charge mechanic, derived from Sentinel enhanced sniper rifle platform. When charged, bullets fired from Sentinel-AT AMR will completely break Titan shields in one hit and deals extra unshielded damage, making this already dangerous weapon even more dangerous.
It's a higher-caliber, semi-automatic variant of Sentinel ESR and Sentinel-AP Sniper to fire more powerful 14.5x114mm rounds at hypersonic speed. It retains the charging mechanics from both original Sentinel and the .50-cal variant.
The Plasma Charge hop-up changes the charge mechanism in order to utilize the release-to-fire mechanic of Plasma Charge hop-up on any semi-automatic weapons.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The IMC wanted to replace the Kraber-AP Sniper with the more powerful, semi-automatic one now known as Sentinel-AT AMR. The Sentinel-AT AMR wins the bid for the semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle that can effectively take down both Titans and dropships. The IMC also wants a long-range anti-Titan weapon that is neither bolt-action nor single-shot.
Description[edit | edit source]
It is a recoil-operated, dual-stage, bullpup semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle, designed for use against Titans. It has battery magazines to allow any energy sources to charge shots with more damaging effect. Additionally, the Sentinel-AT AMR uses electromagnetic propulsion to drive 14.5mm APFSDS round to the hypersonic speed and 20mm payload round to approximately 2,000 meters per second. When charged, Sentinel-AT AMR injects plasma into projectiles, making it more dangerous and it can burn anything flammable even if ammunition is not incendiary.
Pros and cons[edit | edit source]
- One shot kill against Pilots regardless of body parts.
- High projectile speed.
- Bullets penetrate enemies, allowing you to hit multiple targets with one shot.
- Charged shots will break the Titan's shield on hit.
- Charged shots will have an additional energy damage.
- Can inflict massive damage on longer trigger pulls using the Plasma Charge hop-up attachment.
- As an anti-materiel rifle.
- Can open doors by shooting the handle.
- Can sever Titan's hands and ordnances.
- Can temporary slows down or even immobilizes Titans.
- Bullets will go through thick walls, making it possible to wallbang Pilots and kill inside Titans.

- Low magazine capacity.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Sentinel-AT AMR is inspired by PTRS-41 anti-tank rifle and Barrett XM109 anti-materiel rifle.
- The R-2818 designation references an SCP-2818, a semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle capable of launching users through anomalous means.
