Overview & Game Play

The combat engineer is the soldier tasked with the heavy building, repair, and demolition duties on the battlefield. In the game, the engineer can do the following:

  • Damage and destroy forward bases, bridges, and other structures by placing explosive satchels on them.
  • Repair bridges and AI defensive emplacements using their repair kit.
  • Place a large gun emplacement as their Player-Placed Object.

Except for two extra smoke grenades, the engineer is no better fit for battle than an ordinary rifleman. Since the engineer is the only unit that can destroy FBs and repair buildings, you should try to avoid combat whenever possible to save them for when they're valuable: The engineer shouldn't be treated as a combat class.

Engineers are equipped with a rifle, four HE and smoke grenades, and a combat knife. They also carry four HE satchels and four repair kits.
