Turrets and've come to the right place.
— The Engineer

The Engineer is one of the four Dwarves in the game.

He is equipped with the "Warthog" Auto 210, the "Stubby" Voltaic SMG, and the LOK-1 Smart Rifle as his primaries, and the Deepcore 40mm PGL, the Breach Cutter, and the Shard Diffractor as his secondaries. He has the Platform Gun, the LMG Gun Platform, and the "Owl" Armor Rig as his equipment, and the L.U.R.E., the Plasma Burster, the Proximity Mine, and the Shredder Swarm as his throwables.


As the Engineer, you carry two essential items for surviving the caves - the Platform Gun shoots climbable platforms onto any surface, and your automated Sentry Turrets lay down blistering hails of support fire - if you manage to get it set up before you're killed. You may not be the sturdiest of Dwarves, but your Combat Shotgun and devastating Grenade Launcher still makes you a formidable opponent.
— Class Description

As the Engineer, you can support your team mates by providing them with ground to stand on using your Platform Gun and assist in combat using your LMG Gun Platform, "Warthog" Auto 210 shotgun, "Stubby" Voltaic SMG submachine gun or the LOK-1 Smart Rifle submachine gun and your heavy weapon : Grenade Launcher, Breach Cutter or Shard Diffractor. You can place your Sentry Turrets in defensive positions to protect your team, and use your platforms to help your team mobilize during missions.

The Engineer can choose from four different grenades to use: The L.U.R.E., which creates a holographic Dwarf decoy that distracts enemies from himself and his allies; the Plasma Burster, which creates four explosions per grenade; the Proximity Mine which only explodes when a medium or bigger enemy enters its trigger zone; and the Shredder Swarm, a handheld bundle of drones which will shred any nearby target.


Each class has twelve pieces of Equipment, each of which can be individually upgraded using Credit.png Credits and crafting resources. There are six unlockable weapons per class, three primary weapons and three secondary weapons. Each weapon has its own assignment you are required to complete to unlock the weapon. Once an assignment for a weapon has been completed it can then be purchased within the upgrade terminal.

  • The Engineer is the only Dwarf whose default appearance in official artwork varies. Sometimes he is shown with a full beard and mustache, other times clean shaven with only the latter.
