Enemy Intel

Sentry Launcher is a mechanical enemy in Final Fantasy VII Remake and "Episode INTERmission". In the base game, it is fought in the Upper Sector 7 and Corkscrew Tunnel. They are stationary and best dispatched by using Lightning Lightning magic on them.

In "Episode INTERmission", they appear alongside the boss The Crimson Mare, but only in the first battle phase, making them missable for Enemy Intel completion if the player advances the battle too fast; it is best to assess them at the earliest opportunity. Lightning Ninjutsu and lightning magic are still good against them; Sonon will use free Thunder Thunder spells onto Yuffie's target if he has Synergy Materia Synergy Materia paired with Lightning Materia Lightning Materia whenever Yuffie uses an ATB ability; this means using the ranged Windstorm on the launchers may be smart even if they greatly resist wind.

Its Japanese name is "Missile Launcher". In a modern military usage, a missile or guided missile, is a self-propelled guided weapon system, as opposed to an unguided self-propelled munition, referred to as just a rocket. Non-self-propelled airborne explosive devices are generally referred to as shells and usually have a shorter range than missiles. Missiles have four system components: targeting and/or guidance, flight system, engine, and warhead and come in types adapted for different purposes. In ordinary English-language usage predating guided weapons, a missile is any thrown object.
