    Is it possible to have a map spawn a sentry for testing? This way I can try to attack it without having to have another player playing engie...

    you can just place an obj_sentrygun or whatever it is called in the map, but that wouldn't emulate the engineer whacking it from behind in any given situation.

    Try putting it in for a gameday when a new one appears in the events section (there's never a shortage of engies at gameday!) or alternatively use tf_bot_add red engineer to get an engie. You'll need to build a nav file for the map though.

    If you don't want the sentry to run out of ammo, be sure to destroy it and respawn it every 60 seconds.
