* A staple of settlement defence strategy in ''VideoGame/{{Rimworld}}'', however their onboard AI is noted in-universe as being rather primitive, meaning they don't care if a friendly gets in the way. (Not that your colonists are any more careful.) They also have an unfortunate tendency to explode if damaged badly enough.

* It should be noted that the role of the sentry gun in most video games is area denial. While much ado is made over robots killing without human involvement, squeamishness never stopped militarizes the world over before. Far more likely is the fact that good old fashioned land mines are far more effective at area denial than a tripod mounted machine gun will ever be. Sentry guns show up in video games because games have some obligation to be fair. Land mines definitely are anything but fair (There's a reason why they're on the Geneva banned weapons list, though the US hasn't signed onto that part of the treaty).

* ''{{VideoGame/Foxhole}}'''s World War-styled setting is too primitive to field actual automatic turrets, but static defenses can function as this provided that there is a TunnelNetwork within range. These structures will deactivate within ten minutes if they're disconnected from the network.
