|“||Turrets and explosions...you've come to the right place.|
|— The Engineer|
The Engineer is one of the four Dwarves in the game.
As the Engineer, you carry two essential items for surviving the caves - the Platform Gun shoots climbable platforms onto any surface, and your automated Sentry Turrets lay down blistering hails of support fire - if you manage to get it set up before you're killed. You may not be the sturdiest of Dwarves, but your Combat Shotgun and devastating Grenade Launcher still makes you a formidable opponent.
The Engineer can choose from three different grenades to use: The L.U.R.E., which creates a holographic Dwarf decoy that distracts enemies from himself and his allies, the Plasma Burster, which creates four explosions per grenade, and the Proximity Mine, that only explodes when a medium or larger size enemy enters its trigger zone.
Unlockable weapons include:
- "Stubby" Voltaic SMG: a submachine gun that has a chance to electrocute the target.
- Breach Cutter: a cannon firing a plasma wave that penetrates enemies and terrain.
Each class has eight pieces of Equipment, each of which can be individually upgraded using Credits and crafting resources. There are two unlockable weapons per class, a primary and a secondary weapon. Each weapon has its own assignment you are required to complete to unlock the weapon. Once an assignment for a weapon has been completed it then can be purchased within the upgrade terminal.

- "Infestation problems? Automated turret, mate."
- "Time for a cold one once this is done."
- "All in a day's work."
- "Turrets and explosions...you've come to the right place."
- "Cut 'em off, cut 'em down. That's the way."
- "Identify targets and exterminate. That's how it's done."
- The Engineer is the only Dwarf whose default appearance in official artwork varies. Sometimes he is shown with a full beard and mustache, other times clean shaven with only the latter.
