Tactics

The Engineer is weak when used as a purely offensive class, as it's SMG is outclassed compared to the weapons available to other classes. Instead, the Engineer can be used in a support role, building defences and fortifications for his team.

With access to the Engineer Jetpack, the Engineer can reach high locations such as building tops with relative ease. This allows players to reach useful vantage points, or ambush players. Players should ensure they have enough fuel to reach their desired location, so they don't run out of fuel when flying upwards and die from the fall damage.

The Engineer is especially useful in the Demolition Game Mode. It's large block wallet allows players to repair their base quickly, whilst the Engineer Jetpack means they can access hard to reach areas of the base to repair them.

Trivia

  • The Engineer class was added in Build 3067, replacing the Rocketeer class.
