About[edit | edit source]
The "Warthog" Auto 210 is a primary weapon for the Engineer. It is a typical pump-action shotgun with a large barrel and a sleek profile. Unlike most shotguns, this one operates using a magazine and so it can reload its full capacity much faster than loading the shells individually.
A reliable self-defence option for dealing with anything that gets past the Engineer's turrets and powerful secondaries. Although the Warthog is a pump-action weapon, it fires so fast that it may as well be a semi-auto shotgun. Its fast firing speed and generously high amount of reserve ammo make it a great option in the hands of greenbeards and veterans alike, and it also has a decent base chance of stunning enemies (which can be improved upon further with mods). All of these factors combined make the Warthog an excellent self-defence tool, often capable of one-shotting most enemies when aiming for their weak spots.
Despite its numerous advantages the Warthog does suffer with some problems. As a shotgun it is obviously limited by range and struggles to reliably damage distant foes. Enemies such as Glyphid Webspitters and Mactera Spawn can easily keep their distance while firing back upon the Engineer. The weapon also suffers somewhat with damage - on higher difficulties it may fail to one-shot enemies even when aiming directly for their weakpoints. For this reason the Warthog should primarily be used as a self-defence weapon for protecting the Engineer himself.

Unique Modifications[edit | edit source]
Turret Whip[edit | edit source]
Turret Whip is an upgrade for the Warthog that allows the Engineer to manually fire a powerful shot from a Sentry. If a single pellet from a shotgun with this upgrade hits a Sentry, it will cause the Sentry to consume 10 ammo from its reserves to fire a fast-moving projectile in the direction it is currently facing. If the Sentry does not have 10 ammo, it will not fire. The Sentry does not need to be targeting an enemy for this projectile to fire, and can be shot from the barrel while the Sentry is in its idle sweep. The projectile deals 120 damage and has a 1m blast radius. It can deal friendly fire to allies and to the Engineer that fired it. Turret Whip can be triggered by any Engineer in the party.
Miner Adjustments[edit | edit source]
Miner adjustments is an upgrade for the Warthog that transforms it into an automatic shotgun (from a semi-auto). It visibly increases the fire rate by 1.2; it also allows the user to continuously fire by simply holding down the fire button instead of needing to tap it.
