Skill Variants

Heal

The choice of heal skill is very open. We recommend as it provides an additional Blast finisher with to generate more Quickness Quickness, condition cleanse and water field with , and good healing with the toolbelt skill (Bandage Self counts as "using your heal skill" for all purposes such as ). Other options can be considered:

  • provides very high healing and cleanses 2 conditions when first deployed, while creating a water field where you can detonate the turret to provide even more healing (See: Guide:What are Combo Fields). Always pick up the turret or detonate it, as it will provide more healing over time than the super weak regeneration that leaving the turret deployed provides.
  • - helpful to negate a big attack or a oneshot, and has a helpful 2 second stun on the toolbelt skill . This skill requires a bit more skill to use, as it only provides large healing if you were to take lethal damage.
  • - simple option that provides a water field.

As of the June 27 Patch I consider Power Scrapper to be one of the strongest open world builds in the game due to its ease of providing permanent quickness, high burst damage, and very high DPS for a solo build. Scrapper itself is in a fantastic spot right now and is incredibly self-sufficient. I strongly recommend anyone interested in Engineer to invest some time trying this build.
