There's already the minisentries, and more sentry types would need some balancing

Welp we could always take an idea from the past!

The Gaurd Dog

Level X Mobile Sentry Turret Tracking Device

Builds a special sentry that lets you place 2 waypoints by right clicking with the PDA out. The "Sentry" follows each point ending in the final point of where it was first built.

+ "Turret" patrols a select area of your choice
+ Build time is halfway between a traditional level 1 sentry and a mini
+ Can be upgraded to get more health on it's waypoints and increased patrol speed.
+ Just the most gosh darn adorable thing!

- stops to attack passersby
- Less power in exchange for more coverage
- May not be in the right place at the right time.
- Can be sapped at the turret or the first waypoint.
- Less health then a traditional sentry.

^ Note that this isin't the original but my rendition of how it could work.

I think there are enough sentries as is, anything more would just put the Engineer out of balance with all the other characters.
Though I do think that a Mini Health only Dispenser would be cool.

this "idea" has been suggested around every 2 seconds the day after launch

Mechanics personal hell raiser, it's a small circular turret, and it constantly sprays a ring of fire in a small radius, per level it gets more range and faster firing speed as well as health and ammo capacity.
Pros
Attacks multiple enemies at once
Can attack spies
Constantly protects
Can be used around corners
More health

Cons
Small radius
Constantly firing (refill it a lot)
Not as strong as a regular sentry

Wrangler would basically allow you to contro when it fires, so if you want to put it around corners without enemies seeing fire

What do you mean different fire power? As in a turret that does flame damage? Like a troll? Ba dum tss.
Although an immobile flame turret would be kind of cool.

I really like the idea of an "artillery" sentry. You'd have to set it up away from the battle, then get up close to spot targets with your wrangler. The engy is away from the gun, so if a spy gets it, you're done.

what if the engi can build a type of vehicle and he rides around in it?
