Front-line serving members of the Engineer Corps are called Engineers. Choosing to fight the enemy with both brain and brawn, they are accompanied by combat worthy robots, from the outright destructive X1 Guardian, to the more versatile Field Probes, to the mobile Field Nexus. Engineers are able to assess and exploit weaknesses with great skill. They are most feared for their utilization of Nexus technology to influence biological organisms and even mind control them. Gruff, elitist and multi-talented the Engineer no doubt belongs in the Marine Corps.

Disruption Tower Edit

This destructive energy is more efficient at dealing damage to infested matter as well as Massive and Heroic targets. Thankfully the Power Armor of the Marines protects them from such radiation. 2 may be active at once, and they have a 2 second build time. The Disruption Towers can be self destructed, causing a 2 second stun to all enemies nearby. Towers can only kill targets when any Engineer is within 5 radius.

Does not stack with the Batteries of other Engineers. Passive Aura.

X-1 GuardianEdit

(Y) - The Engineer can create a land based Droid to operate as a personal bodyguard. It comes equipped with a powerful railgun and is very nimble. However, should it die it is expensive to replace.

Level 1 - Deals 7% additional damage
Level 2 - Deals 14% additional damage
Level 3 - Deals 21% additional damage

Tier 2Edit

Boom! HeadshotEdit

(C) - The Engineer's attacks and that of the X-1 Guardian become more precise. By aiming for their targets heads they can stun them for a time and effectively lower their defense. 12 second cooldown. 20 energy cost.

Level 1 - Stuns for 1 second, reduces armor by 2, increases attack speed 10%. Slows Heroic units by 15%.
Level 2 - Stuns for 2 seconds and reduces armor by 4, increases attack speed 20%. Slows Heroic units by 30%.


By synchronizing their attacks to hit the same spot on a target the Engineer and his X-1 can punch through the same bullet holes. Doing so increases the kinetic energy of each hit, as the shots tear through soft tissue. By attacking in this fashion both Man and Machine's damage greatly increases when fighting the same enemy. Passive

Level 1 - 20% damage increase
Level 2 - 40% damage increase

Tier 3Edit


(Q, located on X-1 Guardian) - Upon activation, the X-1 Guardian gains access to twin thermal lances which are devastating to any enemy it could ever face. The blinding heat will quickly cut through smaller foes, and severely injure the larger ones. 45 second cooldown. 20 energy cost.
