— The Driller

The Driller is one of the four playable Dwarves of Deep Rock Galactic.


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 also 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

The Driller can create stairways, pathways and clear obstacles for the team via his Reinforced Power Drills. While excellent at digging through terrain, the Reinforced Power Drills are unable to mine minerals such as Gold and Nitra.

He is equipped to control large hordes of enemies using any of his formidable primary weapons: The CRSPR Flamethrower, the Cryo Cannon or the Corrosive Sludge Pump. For longer range, the Driller must rely on any of his secondary weapons: The Subata 120, the Experimental Plasma Charger, or the Colette Wave Cooker. He also carries destructive Satchel Charges, which are useful for clearing obstacles, 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 causes massive area damage, the Neurotoxin Grenade which detonates in a cloud of toxic (and highly volatile) gas which explodes if ignited, and the Springloaded Ripper which will rapidly traverse the ground to eviscerate anything it happens to touch.


All classes have unique Equipment items, each of which can be individually upgraded using Credit.png Credits and minerals. There are currently six unlockable weapons per class, three primary weapons and three secondary weapons, and each weapon has its own assignment which must be completed in order for it to be unlocked. Once an assignment for a weapon has been completed, it then can be purchased via the upgrade terminal.
