If you like to play a weapon-heavy class, in Remnant 2 the Engineer is the best one for you. The Engineer archetype is a highly competent Heavy Weapon specialist who can deploy or carry heavy weapons. His perks are also related to high-damage deals and unlimited ammo, making him completely weapon-focused. Let’s look at this guide, which details all the important things you should know about the Engineer class in Remanat 2.
Unlock Engineer Archetype
First go to N’Erud, specifically the outside zones, which are two places. Eon Vault or the Timeless Horizon, so go to one of these and then search for the Titan’s Reach checkpoint. Now search for an Alien Device which is somewhere in the deadly fog. To save yourself from dying in this fog, use Purified Salve, which will build up your resistance.
Keep going until you reach the first drop. Jump and land on the next one to get the armor. Now look at the map for a red symbol. Once spotted, follow it to obtain the Alien Device. It will require you to drop a little and then get it.
Lastly, go and find Wallace in Ward 13. Now, using this Alien device, you’ll be able to make the Engram required for the Engineer archetype. This is called the Drzyr Caliper Engram, and here are the items needed to craft this.
- Alien Device
- 10 Lumenite Crystals
- 1000 Scrap
Engineer Trait: Fortify
The Fortify is a special trait for the Engineer archetype. Its function is that it increases the defense of the equipped armor of the player. Fortify increases the defensive capabilities for each level by 5%.
There are three skills for Engineer, and each has the condition of having at least 25% ammo before activating the skill. Also, these abilities can be used for both the turret and carry modes.
Heavy Weapon: Vulcan
The first skill that is automatically unlocked is Heavy Weapon: Vulcan. This ability plants a Vulcan turret that provides enough firepower to take down several foes.
If you press the button for the ability, it will start shooting until the ammo is empty. The other option is to hold the button that puts the Vulcan in heavy carry mode and can be used like a normal weapon. You can also double-press and reclaim the 75% of ammo left.
Heavy Weapon: Flamethrower
This skill allows the player to use a Flamethrower turret, which can deal damage over a medium range.
When you simply press the control to launch the ability, the flamethrower can last as long as the ammo is. Holding the button will make it a heavy weapon, and a double press will reclaim 75% of the remaining ammo.
Heavy Weapon: Impact Cannon
Lastly, and the most deadly of them all is the Heavy weapon: Impact Canon ability. This skill blasts and grants explosive damage to enemies within its medium range.
The mechanics are the same as the other two skills with one press using up all the ammo, hold makes the ability to be used as a weapon while double press will save your ammo.

Engineer Default Weapons
The long gun in the Engineer bundle is a Pulse Rifle, which is known for its accuracy and three-time shooting capability. It is not a long-range weapon and thrives the best in medium-range combat.
Rupture Cannon is a pistol shotgun, which means it will have a recoil. It is very effective for medium range and causes high damage.
The Engineer melee weapon, Atom Smasher in Remnant 2 is probably the coolest design for a melee weapon in this game. As the name suggests, it causes chaos by breaking the bonds between objects or humans, literally. With its high damage, it is best for close combat and can easily destroy your enemies.
