This build is probably the easiest build to play for core engineer at the moment. Uses the easy-to-learn bomb kit (a good kit to start off with learning how kits function) and the mortar kit which would be rough for newer players who aren't used to ground targeting, but regardless, it has good damage and sustain. A great build for new players who just started out the game or just new engineer players.
