You all know this NPC, he spawns when you join a session or finish a mission, driving like a maniac and smashing his car into your face.

 

But there appears to be a development. Maybe others have experienced it, maybe not, but I can say with certainty that what is occurring in my session right now... Is chaos.

 

The Sentinel Guy is everywhere. I have been standing on the road in front of Los Santos Customs by the airport for 15 minutes and multiple, all black vehicles driving at abnormal speeds have been going up and down the road the entire time, every 10, 20 or 30 seconds. Surges, Dominators and Sentinels, containing NPCs from random regions of the map. I managed to shoot a Sentinel Guy's car, but out came a hillbilly who proceeded to shoot me in the head.

 

I have died 7 times while standing on this road. I swear that one of the Sentinel Guys stopped and turned around just to come back and run me over.

 

Has the Sentinel Guy formed a crew to expand his reign of terror? Did he put an ad in the paper? Surely I can't be the only one seeing this?

 

*deep breath*

 

As of the time of posting this thread, it has finally stopped, perhaps because I climbed onto a rooftop for safety.

 

Oh god... I got down off the rooftop when I noticed it had stopped, and immediately after typing that last portion of the above sentence, another Sentinel Guy drives by. I barely escaped. And then another Surge Guy! And a Dominator Guy!

 

It's still happening!

This would've been hilarious to experience. They must have formed a gang. What else would've happened?

Never has the "Sentinel guy" attacked me. I have seen him though driving around like an ahole. I just figured they just modeled the NPC after your usual BMW or Lexus driver.

I have never seen this "Sentinel Guy". I have found a Sentinel parked by the office Michael visits his therapist at.

And there was a fourth vehicle I got a picture of, but I don't know what it was.

And that's a surge screwing around in the background.

I hate that guy. I have had a few run ins with him. One time I spawned in and then he spawned in a car right above me and crushed me. Another time I swear he killed me with an assault shotgun from his car. Like a drive by somehow! Just earlier today I got ran over by him. Also yes yesterday I saw like 3 of them at once.

Kind of horrifying...

Hmm... I have a fully modded Sentinel in slot 10. Maybe I can paint it all black, go off the radar, and start attacking people.

I didn't believe in the sentinel guy until earlier today. I finished up a game of RR and was walking across the street from madrazos house to get to my PV, then *SMACK* I got run over. Had little HP left and just in the nic of time I capped his ass.

I can't believe this, it's still occurring. Even after changing sessions, doing jobs, etc.

 

But now, it's even worse. The cars are killing me instantly and saying, "You committed suicide" and "You died," at the same time. I was even in my car and a Sentinel Guy killed me.

 

This started happening when I started coming back from Rooftop Rumble, up at Martin's.

 

They're getting stronger....

The revolution has begun. They have finally amassed a large enough army of sentinels to take us all out.

Frame 5 shows he doesn't always drive a Sentinel. I have a 99% kill ratio on this clown.

 

Sentinel guy - 1

Me - 1000 (just a guess)

After searching and reading, it appears mostly people who play rooftop Rumble see this guy a lot. I have played it one time with a friend and never seen this "sentinel guy".

I have seen a blacked out SUV kill me after a quick round of Coveted. I had never seen it chasing my Cargobob towards Madrazo's lockup until just the other day. As soon as the mission ended I selected Free Roam and the blacked out SUV ran me down but didn't stop to finish my mangled body off.

New thought: what if it's like GTA2?! Maybe you've all gained favor with certain mission giving NPCs so the opposing "gangs" are attacking you. That would be cool. Like the 10 blocks of Triads in GTA3.

It's the San Andreas Mafia. Running over random people. One person at a time.
