The automated sentry is a weapon cut from Renegade.
Designed by Szakolczay to be a light, compact unit for maximum portability, the Watchdog folds out into an automated sentry position with friendly-fire detection utilizing standard signature protocols.
This unit is effective for watching small areas or corner positions in tactical situations, making it an engineer's best friend as they go about their work. When Watchdog runs out of ammo, it self-destructs to prevent capture and reuse by the enemy.
This weapon was cut from Renegade in development, however, references to it exist in game data, together with an inventory icon.
