So now that we’ve covered the abilities, let’s talk about his playstyle. Sentinel agents are defensive artists who are extremely useful in locking down an entire site while defending. These agents typically have different types of traps that can reveal much needed information on your enemies whereabouts to win the round.
Don’t be fooled though. Cypher isn’t just a defensive agent. This agent is extremely useful while attacking. Placing tripwires to hold your behind can be incredibly useful. Doing this ensures that no one can push behind to kill the entire team.
There are locations across all maps where you can place unbreakable tripwires without walking into them. These are extremely useful when rotating to the other site as your enemy cannot pass without alerting you. No more being baited without been notified. Be careful though, agents like Sage and Jett can easily boost themselves above these tripwires using their utility.
I’d recommend going in custom matches and finding your own sneaky cameras, one-way smokes and tripwires.
