Introduction

The Squad Engineer is responsible for a variety of tasks, the most important being erecting battlefield fortifications, setting up forward-operating bases (FOB's,) and repairing/destroying mission-critical objectives. You have lots of tools and materials to work with, including the TGMC's powerful remote sentry units, land mines, barbed wire, explosives, and welders.

Playing the Engineer

As an engineer, you must be prepared to operate effectively with whatever assignment your squad is given. Sometimes a squad will be assigned a specific duty solely based on their engineers, building the initial FOB or repairing colony communications or power, for example. Other times, you will be in an assault squad that's constantly on the move, assisting with demolition, entry into inaccessible areas, and making defensive areas forward of the main FOB or LZ.

The FOB is built by drone on the ship, which is far faster than building it by hand. Once the FOB shutters are raised, it will be surrounded by xenos, meaning every single marine will be trapped inside.

Almost every marine operation will have some type of FOB, and all engineers need to know how to build and maintain one of these positions. You must also learn how to set up and place defensive weapon systems like the UA 571-C Sentry. After learning these basics, you will also need to familiarize yourself with repairing mission-critical infrastructure such as colony power generators, APC's, and telecommunications systems. These activities will make up the bulk of your job, but further learning includes demolition using C4 and remote charges, welding, repair, hacking, construction, and on-site salvaging for any material you could use.

Vendors, Equipment, and Weapons

The Squad Engineer has their own prep room within their squad prep area (hover your mouse over the doors if you can't find it.) Inside are your GHMME Automated Closet, NEXUS Automated Engineer Equipment Rack, and yellow Engineer System Vendor.

The Automated Closet contains your standard kit, choice of armor, backpack, webbings, toolbelt, pouches, and any mask you may want.

Item: Desc.:
TGMC Suppressor.png

Suppressor

A small tube with exhaust ports to expel noise and gas. Does not completely silence a weapon, but does make it much quieter and a little more accurate and stable at the cost of bullet speed. Exact stats: +10% damage falloff, halves bullet speed
Wielded: +10% accuracy,-5% scatter,-2 recoil
Unwielded: -5% scatter, -3 recoil

TGMC Extended Barrel.png

Extended Barrel

A lengthened barrel allows for lessened scatter, greater accuracy and muzzle velocity due to increased stabilization and shockwave exposure. Makes your weapon longer(obviously), making it unlikely to fit in a holster.

Exact Stats: doubles bullet speed, +1 item size
Wielded: +15% accuracy, -5% scatter
Unwielded: +10% accuracy

TGMC Recoil Compensator.png

Recoil Compensator

A muzzle attachment that reduces recoil and scatter by diverting expelled gasses upwards. Makes you look like you're overcompensating for something.

Exact stats:
Wielded: -15% scatter, -2 recoil
Unwielded: -15% scatter, -2 recoil

TGMC Magnetic Harness.png

Magnetic Harness

A magnetically attached harness kit that attaches to the rail mount of a weapon. When dropped, the weapon will sling to TGMC armor or your back. Does not slow you down if attached to a weapon and equipped. but why don't you just use a pick up macro? they disabled pickup macros for guns. Use these to keep your gun on you instead.

Exact stats: -9999% frustration when pounced on

TGMC RDS.png

Red Dot Sight

A red-dot sight for short to medium range. Does not have a zoom feature, but does increase weapon accuracy by a good amount. No drawbacks.

Exact stats:
Wielded: +15% accuracy
Unwielded: +10% accuracy

TGMC Laser Sight.png

Laser Sight

Fookin' laser soights. A laser sight placed under the barrel. Significantly increases one-handed accuracy and significantly reduces movement penalties to accuracy.

Exact stats:
Wielded: +10% accuracy
Unwielded: +15% accuracy

TGMC Vertical Grip.png

Vertical Grip

A custom-built improved foregrip for better accuracy, less recoil, and less scatter when wielded especially during burst fire. However, it also slightly increases wield delay and makes unwielded fire more cumbersome. Makes your gun slightly bigger, possibly making it not fit in holsters.

Exact stats: -100% scatter, +1 item size, +0.2s wield delay
Wielded: +10% accuracy, -10% scatter, -2 recoil
Unwielded: -5 accuracy, +5% scatter

TGMC Angled Grip.png

Angled Grip

A custom-built improved foregrip for less recoil, and faster wielding time. However, it also increases weapon size, and slightly hinders unwielded firing.

Exact stats: +1 item size, -0.3s wield delay
Wielded: -1 recoil
Unwielded: -10% accuracy, +5% scatter

TGMC t19stock.png

T-19 machinepistol stock

A submachinegun stock distributed in "small" numbers to TGMC forces. Compatible with the T-19, this stock reduces recoil and improves accuracy, but at a reduction to handling and agility. Seemingly a bit more effective in a brawl. Use this if you plan on using the T-19 as your primary weapon.

Exact stats: +1 item size, +5 melee damage, +0.1s wield delay
Wielded: +10% accuracy, -10% scatter, -2 recoil
Unwielded: -10% scatter

TGMC t35stock.png

T-35 stock

A non-standard heavy stock for the T-35 Shotgun. Less quick and more cumbersome than the standard issue stakeout, but reduces recoil and improves accuracy. Allegedly makes a pretty good club in a fight too.

Exact Stats: +2 item size, +5 melee damage, +0.4s wield delay
Wielded: +15% accuracy, -20% scatter, -3 recoil
Unwielded: n/a


NOTE: The exoskeleton can mount 1 storage module.

Module: Desc:
TGMC jaeger module general.png

General purpose storage module

Certainly not as specialised as any other storage modules, but definitely able to hold some larger things, like binoculars, maps, magazines, and motion detectors.
TGMC jaeger module engineer.png

Engineering storage module

Can hold about as much as a tool belt, and sometimes small spools of things like barbed wire, or an entrenching tool. Looks like it might slow you down a bit.
TGMC jaeger module medic.png

Medical storage module

Can hold a substantial variety of medical supplies and apparatus, but cannot hold much more than a medkit could. Looks like it might slow you down a bit.

NOTE: These modules augment your armor, increasing its abilities and resistances. Only one can be attached at a time.

Module: Desc:
TGMC jaeger module baldur.png

Mark 1 Baldur light amplification system

Increases the power output of the Jaeger Combat Exoskeleton's mounted flashlight. Slows you down slightly.
TGMC jaeger module tyr.png

Mark 1 Tyr armor reinforcement

A large amount of additional armor plating designed to fit inside some of the vulnerable portions of the Jaeger Combat Exoskeleton conventional armor patterns. This older version has worse protection. Will definitely impact mobility.
TGMC jaeger module mimir.png

Mark 1 Mimir environmental resistance system

When activated, this system provides resistance to environmental hazards, such as gases and radiological exposure. This older version provides no protection to acid. Best paired with the Mimir Environmental Helmet System. Will impact mobility.
TGMC Ballistic armor module.png

Ballistic armor module

A substantial amount of additional armor plating designed to fit inside some of the vulnerable portions of the Jaeger Combat Exoskeleton conventional armor patterns against bullets and nothing else. Will definitely impact mobility.

The Automated Equipment Rack contains your essential engineer set, which is free, as well as 45 points to purchase additional supplies, tools, explosives, and special ammunition. Your choice of two weapon attachments are also free.


TGMC TerraGovTech Engineer System Vendor.png TerraGovTech Engineer System Vendor TGMC TerraGovTech Engineer System Vendor.png

There exists one vendor per round. It contains one M402 Mortar Kit, three UA 571-C Sentry crates, and one TL-102 HSG crate.

Tips

  • As of July 11th 2021 there are 12 engineer slots per round, and usually only 2-4 engineers; So don't feel pressured to not play engineer in order to let more experienced players play as engineer.
  • An easy way to spend all your vendor points as engineer is to buy 100 metal, 70 plasteel, and 1 turret and you will only have 1 points remaining
