Detonation Sentries are hostile mobs found in the Aether.


Detonation Sentries primarily spawn from Carved Trap blocks in Slider's Labyrinth dungeons or through mob spawners. They may also be spawned from Sentry Guardians.


When within range of the player, they explode and destroy themselves. The explosion does little damage, but it will incur considerable fall damage.


  • A good way to easily endure a group of Detonation Sentries is to build a low roof over the area so when they blow you up you will not receive damage from the knockback; only the explosion.
  • They will always blow you up in the direction behind you, so you can utilize a tactic of building a safe spot in the direction behind you above the ground so they can't get to you when you are blown up to your safe spot and can heal.
  • A useful way of not taking any damage from them is by wearing full Gravitite Armor
  • Hitting them with a Gravitite Sword and having them take the full fall damage from the attack will kill them on the spot.


  • Detonation Sentries share the same 'step' noise as slimes and Swets.
  • When you are out of their sight, their symbol stops glowing.
