  1. To beat him on the ground first you msut destroy his feet this is easily done by lunging at them then when he is about to stop rolling away, rinse and repeat. Next you must destroy his hands of which there are two ways to do so. Firstly you can wait for him to punch the ground which will almsot certainly knock you back then lunge back to whichever hand he has used and slash it. However more effective in my opinion was to go under his legs/body and wait for him to grab me then slash away very easily done. Obviosuly berserk makes all of the above advice quicker so use it. I believe after this he takes off. To beat him whilst he is falling through the air is much more straight forward simply sky dive toward him using Square button to break anything but the large cylinders that fly up towards you, this also makes you go towaerd the sentinel much faster by repeatedly bashing it, for your conveinince you can also use the right analog stick to very quickly move from one side of the screen to the other. Once you reach him the third time youll have to tap Circle button pretty fast to rip his triangular chest plate off. Congraqtulations you've beaten the Sentinel Mark 1. It shoudl also be noted that druing the "flying stage" of this boss a large metal ring will fly up toward you and if you go through it you can earn the trophy "Threading The Needle".

  1. Which part exactly are you referring to? The bit on the ground or in the air?

  2. When fighting the sentinel on the ground there are metal grates around the area. Some of them will have sparks and electricity shooting out from them. Lure the sentinel over to them then dodge as it stomps/punches you. Be sure to jump over the blue impact wave. The hand/foot will become stuck for a lot longer than usual, giving you plenty of time to use some fury attacks.

  3. I cannot pry the plate off the sentinel in the air either. Anybody have some good button tapping techniques?
