How to Beat Sentrobe
You can defeat a straight bullet by repelling it twice with a shield attack.

Sentrobes are flying machinery that shoots bullets from afar. They are first seen in Lanayru Mining Facility, after activating a Timeshift Stone somewhere in the middle of the dungeon.

As they are flying, you cannot directly fight it in combat. Instead, make use of its attacks, and return them to sender!

Repel Bullets with a Sword Slice or Shield Bash

The key to defeat Sentrobes is to repel the bullets they shoot back to them. You can either do this by slashing or shield bashing the bullets at the precise time. It might take some practice, but once you learn how to deflect bullets, it will be easier to manage.

You need two (2) hits of returned bullets to defeat Sentrobes.

Slice the Bombs

In between bullet attacks, Sentrobe will send out two (2) flying bombs that will approach and explode in a given time. To disarm it, the clue is with the color of the line running through the bomb's surface. Swing your sword according to the orientation of the lines, then you can resume fighting Sentrobe!
