Ground and Air vehicles are a huge factor in both Base assaults and defenses. The Engineer has an advantage while using all types of vehicles because they can continually repair that vehicle and keep it in the fight.

Primary WeaponEdit

Carbine (medium range) or Shotgun (short range) of choice

OpticsEdit

  1. Reflex Sight or
  2. Medium range scope (2x) - More preference towards 2x to use as a scoping device as well when checking out movement areas

BarrelEdit

  • Flash Suppressor - Makes the user less visible to enemy units.

RailEdit

  • Laser Sight (increases accuracy when firing from the hip) - Moving around a lot in order to ensure all teammates vehicles and MAXes are repaired could mean a lot of firing from the hip

AmmoEdit

Secondary WeaponEdit

Standard issue Pistol or upgrade

BarrelEdit

RailEdit

MeleeEdit

Standard Issue melee weapon/knife.

AbilityEdit

Nano Armor Kit - This is how the Engineer class repairs vehicles, MAXes and other equipment, which the one important ability the Engineer has over other classes. If your vehicle becomes damaged during the battle, find a spot outside the battle to hop out and repair it real quickly. Try to always have an exit strategy in mind and keep your vehicle above 50% health at all times.

Mana Turret - Good ability to use to support choke points when no one requires repair or assistance. Good way to setup on the side of a vehicle as a decoy and shield while repairing.

SuitEdit

  1. Flak Armor - Reduces the amount of damage the Engineer receives from explosives
  2. Nanoweave Armor (increase health) - Good overall armor choice.
  3. Advanced Shield Capacitor (shortened recharge delay) - Good choice as long as you ensure you are in and out of combat quickly and give the shields time to recharge

GrenadeEdit

  1. Sticky Grenade - Great grenade for overall combat for the Engineer

UtilityEdit

  1. Medical Kit - Engineers can repair their vehicles but not the damage they might receive while outside repairing it. These are good choices for that since primarily you will be inside a vehicle.
  2. Claymore Explosives - When setting up a good spot to attack large bases, it's useful to setup a claymore or two in order to protect that location from infantry
