Recommended Strategies and Skills for Use With the Engineer Profile
The Engineer profile beefs up your Tech Constructs, so that means that the Assault Turret, Remnant VI drone, and Combat Drone are the most powerful and useful tools in an Engineer’s arsenal. Engineers are also great at using their Tech abilities to prime and detonate combos from range.
As an Engineer, you’ll probably want to put a few points into both the Pistol and Sniper Rifle Combat Skills. Your job is going to be to stay back and let your Tech Constructs draw fire while you prime and detonate combos from a distance. In between Tech power recharges you can use one of the above firearms to continue causing damage.
