It seems that tanking gate turrets is possible. I am wondering what kind of dmg do they do and how much of it. Don't know if it's even possible in higher end sec. 0.4 has more turrets at gates, no?

What kind of skills are necessary for this and how much repair/sec do I need to do. Is this considered an exploit? Will I be banned?

As far as I know the sentry guns do an equal amount of dmg of ALL dmg types, so you'd have to be pretty well rounded to survive them, but it can be done.

As for it being an it is not. If you're tough enough to withstand the sentry guns shooting you while you do your dirty deeds...then you're ok. Sentry guns are only there to prevent rats from gate camping solo in higher sec space killing indies and so on. But they are made so they can be beat, you just have to know how.

u dont have to be that hardcore to tank sentries, they arnt that tough. Get in ur bs and fit a xl shield booster and 3 hards, or 3 hardeners and 2 lrg armour reps. Also of course the cap to run em for a while.

I dont think many can tank them indefinately, but u can certainly do it in excess of 5 minutes in a good tank, i wouldnt recommend going after a fighting bs and the sentrys tho,, unless u are realy really sure of urself.

Markol, a scorp or apoc can easily tank sentries.
