What is an Engineer?
“With a sharp mind, some spare parts and a lot of elbow grease, you will overcome anything the Sector can throw at you.”
Engineers are mechanically minded warriors with both the knowledge and will to craft their dreams into existence. Where the untrained eye sees a pile of scrap metal, the engineer sees untapped potential for all sorts of creations, though many specialize in weaponry.
With a broad variety of uses, modular turrets and the ability to heal or even resurrect their comrades, Engineers serve as crucial supports and are always a welcome sight among their allies on the battlefield. Even on their own, this crafty know-how is a potent force, toppling the greatest of foes and squashing them beneath their techcraft.
What Can an Engineer do?
Engineers are primarily known for the wide range of items they employ, from stationary turrets to mobile drones, from magnotrons to hoverboards.
Engineers have access to the following skills:
Gadgets: This is all about just what it says: various kinds of gadgets. Here you'll find abilities around hoverboard use, magnotrons, shrink-rays, tazers, wormhole generators, and much more!
Turrets: With this, engineers establish networks of turrets (that other engineers can splice into) that must be powered with a QPC - quantum power cell. These turrets can be of multiple types, from laser to flamethrower to strobe and more, and the engineer can even transfer control of a specific turret network to someone else, engineer or not. Everybody remembers the first time they got a face full of shrapnel from a shardflinger! (Because it hurts so much. Ouch.)
Bots: An engineer can deploy multiple bots ranging from scouting drones to tankbots to burrowbots and more. These bots don't just do damage - they can do things like push a table over on someone taking cover behind it, or to spy on a particular room. These bots can also be sent on multi-room patrol paths set up by the engineer that the bots will move through on repeat, allowing the engineer to project power beyond her location.
