Living up to its name, this pig of a weapon never fails to satisfy. Holds six wide-spread shells for rapid-fire death dealing.
— Weapon description

The "Warthog" Auto 210 is a primary weapon for the Engineer. It is a sleek and powerful semi-automatic shotgun (its pump-action mechanism is only used to cycle the action during a reload) that performs best at close range, though it is serviceable at mid to long range. It is magazine-fed, meaning that reloading is quick and consistent, as Dwarves do not need to load shells one by one.

It has a decent base chance of stunning enemies (which can be improved upon further with mods) which can help players keep Glyphids at bay.


There are five tiers of modifications and each tier has two to three upgrades. Only one modification can be equipped per tier.

Icon Upgrade Special.png
Turret Whip
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 5 ammo from its reserves to fire a fast-moving projectile in the direction it is currently facing. If the Sentry does not have 5 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. Turret Whip can be triggered on any Turret by any Engineer in the party that has the upgrade equipped.


Each modification that is purchased advances a mastery bar by one unit.

Mastery unlocks:

  • Three modifications – First Stripe Weapon Paintjob Icon Skin First Stripe.png
