Deep Rock Galactic: Engineer Builds

Deep Rock Galactic Yekbot

Engineer Builds

The engineer has a solution to every problem. The SMG and Warthog provide quick bursts of large close range damage. The grenade launcher can devastate hordes of warriors and the breach cutter can melt praetorians and their armour. Turrets can protect the team from all angles and save your backside from being bitten.


  • The voltaic SMG can be amazing crowd control, or insane burst damage against single targets. Either way it’s a very versatile weapon.
  • The warthog provides a great source of close range devastation, with the power to one-shot warriors and take out praetorians.
  • The grenade launcher can set everything on fire, strip armour or just leave a giant hole where a horde of warriors and swarmers used to be.
  • The breach cutter shoots beams of plasma, able to slice through enemies like butter. The bigger they are the harder they fall.


  • Coming armed with a platform gun, the engineer can quickly make constructs to help the team. From making platforms underneath minerals for the scout, making a quick bridge or staircase to even covering up lava and creating entire floors for salvage missions – this gun comes in handy.
  • Turrets can gun down any creature in range with deadly precision, especially useful for pesky swarmers and covering your backside for when things go south.
