Tips And Tricks For Playing Engineer In Deep Rock Galactic

The Warthog has plenty of reserve ammo and you get 90 extra shells. Miner Adjustments can increase the damage output of the Warthog but it can burn through ammo rather quickly as well.

Use the Turret Whip modification to get the most out of the turrets. Overcharged turret shots consume 10 ammo and create powerful blasts.

The grenade launcher can take out a group of enemies in a single fire. Minerals can be gathered by shooting grenades at them. You can use the grenade launchers to keep dangerous enemies away from allows or objectives.

The Stubby SMG fires very quickly. The spread of the weapon increases very quickly too and recovers slowly. Tap-fire to hit enemies from a distance. Electrocuted enemies move slowly. Upgrades can cause them to take some extra damage as well.

Use L.U.R.E when you have to retreat. This will force the enemies to attack he hologram rather than coming after you. The hologram is not going to last long especially if it is surrounded by enemies. Larger enemies are not easily fooled by the hologram.
