— The Driller

The Driller is one of the four Dwarves in the game.
He is equipped with the CRSPR Flamethrower, Cryo Cannon, and Corrosive Sludge Pump as his primaries, and the Subata 120, Experimental Plasma Charger and the Colette Wave Cooker as his secondaries. He has the Reinforced Power Drills, the Satchel Charge, and the "Mole" Armor Rig as his equipment, and the Impact Axe, High Explosive Grenade, Neurotoxin Grenade, and Springloaded Ripper as his throwables.


As the Driller, you'll be equipped with a set of Titanium Powerdrills. Your job is to clear any blocked tunnels and obstacles in the path of your team, and in combat you are a force to be reckoned with: Your drills make short work of most enemies up close, and for longer range engagements you are equipped with a heavy duty Flamethrower.
— Class Description

As the Driller, you can create stairways, pathways and clear obstacles for your team using your Titanium Powerdrills. You are equipped to control large hordes of enemies using your CRSPR Flamethrower to slowly incinerate your foes, your Cryo Cannon to freeze them in their tracks, or your Corrosive Sludge Pump to melt away swarms. You also have a dependable Subata 120 pistol, Experimental Plasma Charger, and the Colette Wave Cooker. you also carry Satchel Charges for clearing rocks, bugs, or both.

The Driller has four Throwables to pick from: The Impact Axe, which is tossed and can be retrieved if it misses; the High Explosive Grenade which functions as a standard frag; the Neurotoxin Grenade which detonates in a cloud of toxic (and highly volatile) gas which explodes if ignited; and the Springloaded Ripper, a set of whirring blades which will rapidly traverse the ground to eviscerate anything it happens to meet.

The Titanium Powerdrills are unable to dig ores (such as Gold or Nitra).


All classes have twelve pieces of gear, each of which can be individually upgraded using Credit.png Credits and crafting resources. There are currently four 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.
