The Engineer is one of the four playable dwarves in the game. He is equipped with two 'LMG Gun Platform' sentry guns, a "Warthog" 'Auto 210' shotgun, 'Deepcore 40 MM Personal Grenade Launcher', and a Platform gun. His sentries can be placed and recalled at will, and provide support fire for the team, while the platform gun enables teammates to have stable footing for obtaining hard to reach minerals.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

All classes have eight pieces of gear, each of which can be individually upgraded using Credits credits and crafting resources. There's currently two unlockable weapons per class, each weapon has their own assignment. Once an assignment for a weapon has been completed it then can be purchased within the upgrade terminal.

It does what it says on the box. By firing a combination of highly volatile chemicals at a nearby wall,
the result is a rapidly solidifying concrete-like foam that can support several tons of weight. Do not ingest!

Basic Tips and Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • "Warthog" Auto 210
    • Equip the Turret Whip modification to get the most out of your turrets. Each overcharged turret shot consumes 10 ammo and creates a powerful blast.
  • Deepcore 40MM PGL
    • The Grenade Launcher can clear out a large group of enemies with a single shot.
    • Minerals can be gathered from high deposits by shooting grenades at them.
    • Any explosives will cause Glyphids to flee briefly, use the grenade launcher to keep dangerous enemies away from downed allies or objectives.
    • The Grenade Launcher can be used to weaken Glyphid Warriors from a distance, and your Sentry Turrets can finish them off.
  • LMG Gun Platform
    • Use a single turret as an early warning system for incoming enemies.
    • During Salvage Operation missions the engineer is a very viable class as his sentries provide extra firepower during the holdout phases, and his platform gun can expand the defender's area when terrain is uneven or dangerous.
    • Press the reload key to switch between which sentry you'd like to redeploy when both are placed down.
    • Use your Sentry Guns for cover while mining and for support fire during a wave.
  • Platform Gun
    • Pair up your Platform Gun with a Scout to reach ceiling resources easier.
    • Use platforms to bridge across small gaps if the team is out of support tool ammo.
    • When scaling a wall with the Platform Gun, ledge grab onto platforms to conserve ammo.
