Recommended Items For Engineer

Item Recommendation Criteria
SoldierSoldier's Syringe The Soldier's Syringe increases the speed of the Engineer's launching of grenades, allowing him to throw out more in shorter amount of time.
Backup MagazineBackup Magazine The Backup Magazine will increase the amount of mines the Engineer can drop. This is useful in taking care of enemies clumped together near you.
Bustling FungusBustling Fungus The Bustling Fungus creates a healing circle and is best to stack especially when the Engineer lays down turrets. This will create healing circles that will auto-heal the turrets & make them last longer.
UkuleleUkulele The Ukulele is a great supplement to Engineer's moves as it gives chance to create chain-lightning damage to your enemies.
ChronobaubleChronobauble Since Engineer's grenades need lead time when hitting targets, the Chronobauble can be an effective item in slowing enemies down. This will help you hit them more accurately.

This recommendation is based off Common (White) and Rare (Green) items for ease of finding within the game.

Recommended Equipment

The Backup

The Back-up calls in 4 Strike Drones to add more firepower to Engineer's attacks. The Strike Drones provide good cover fire to deal with mobs while the Engineer can focus fire on the Teleporter bosses or enemies with bigger HP.
