Death Sentry is an Assassin Skill in Diablo II.


This trap emits projectiles laden with a potent chemical catalyst, detonating the exposed cadavers of slain enemies.

General InformationEdit


Death Sentry deals slightly less damage than Lightning Sentry and shoots fewer times, but with Corpse Explosion this trap deals much more total damage in combat with non-boss foes.

Similarly to the Necromancer's ability, the corpse explosion deals damage based on the total life of the monster it targets, making it powerful no matter the difficulty level.

Limit of 5 charges per trap applies to both spells, Lightning and Corpse Explosion; either consume a charge to be fired.
