The Wrangler has a few advantages as well Manually controlling the sentry increases its bullet fire rate. I want to say by double, but I'm not positive about that. The blue/red bubble is actually a shield that absorbs 66% of the damage done to it. For an example of what this means, instead of taking 3 stickybombs to kill a level 3 sentry, it takes 8 to ...

The most important thing that should survive an uber is you. Obviously you can get all of your buildings back up a lot faster if you don't have a ~15 second respawn and a run back before you start to rebuild. While dealing with a push, if your team is there to resist it, watching your sentry die from safety is a lot better than you dying along with it. That ...
