Sentry for Citizens2

Sentry for Citizens2

Sentry is a character plugin for the NPC plugin Citizens2. With Sentry, NPC's can be set to guard areas or act as bodyguards. Hostile targeting, retaliation, and a variety of options and stats allow a Sentry NPC to be customized to almost any guarding or combat situation.


Sentries Can:

  • Attack monsters, players, and groups automatically. Sentry also has built-in support for Factions, Towny, War and SimpleClans
  • Kill, and be killed by, players, monsters, and the environment.
  • Guard locations, paths, players, or other NPCs.
  • Use ranged or melee weapons. Shoot arrows, fireballs, snowballs, eggs, lightning, and potions with deadly accuracy.
  • Be configured with stats such as Strength, Health, Armor, Speed, Range and even Night Vision!
  • Ride mounts!
  • Work with Denizen to become Bosses and Quest NPCs that run scripts upon death.


A full list of commands and options is available on the Citizens 2 Wiki


Sentry makes a config.yml in the plugins/Sentry folder on first load. Use this to tailor Sentry to your server. You can:

  • Set defaults for new sentries
  • Change or disable the item used for various attack types
  • Add potion effects like slow or blindness to certain Sentry weapons.
  • Add armor, strength and speed buffs to armor and weapons for Sentries.
  • Set critical hit chances and messages.

The config.yml is commented with instructions.

    You have the wrong version of Factions. Update or downdate to... whichever version Sentry likes, not sure which that is.

    Im using an older version of this for 1.5.2 (FTB server) and for some reason the sentry works, but wont move? Ive tried all sorts of combinations to engage but the sentry just stands there- Once I get close they hit me, but the wont follow/move- Am I missing something here? Not getting any errors...

    Is there a way for us to have the sentries respect both vanish and godmode without having to set the ignore tag on every sentry?

    hi! I have been liking this plugin, but have ran into a problem. Is there support for sentries to try and fight other sentries? Thanks.

    @Romanovski: Go

    Citizens is updating even now, update to the latest dev build of C2. Any further trouble is C2 trouble and should be posted to /that/ issues page, not here.

    How to Compile 1.8 Spigot/Craftbukkit/Bukkit Minecraft - Windows

    I put the newest Citizens, Sentry and Denizen for 1.8 and now on my 1.8 spigot server the old NPC's from 1.7.10 server are invisible. Not having any issues creating brand new NPC though. Any Idea?

    @halogeneral: Go

    You're running Sentry 1.7.9 on a non-1.7.9 server. Find the correct version here:
