Engineer is the support class of Ghost Recon. It’s designed to help out your
team by revealing enemies using various equipment. The Engineer can be an
invaluable part of any squad. Close range weapons are well suited for him.
Shotguns and submachine guns will help you as you run in and toss sensors to uncover enemies. Mobility is also vital for Engineers. You want to be moving around
the map supporting Riflemen as much as possible, as your team works towards
completing objectives. Making use of the tools at your disposal will help
you achieve you objectives much better than shooting up enemies like a maniac.
Shotguns and submachine guns are
the weapon of choice for this brainy bunch. Both are designed to give you high
mobility while still being able to clear out multiple enemies. The shotguns
naturally shoot slower but have the ability to land one-hit kills at short
range. Depending on the type of shell you use, you can also extend their
effective range beyond the normal limit.
Submachine guns are on the opposite end of the spectrum.
They offer a high rate of fire with lower damage. This can be equally deadly up
close as it will drop enemies in less than a second, but as with shotguns, their potency will suffer at longer ranges. Burst fire will help keep you on target and
modifications can improve your accuracy even more. Remember the Engineer is
designed to get close to his enemies. If you are trying to snipe with a
shotgun, you are playing the wrong class.
The Engineer comes with an
interesting selection of grenades, which starts with the sensor grenade. This
grenade, when tossed, will reveal enemies’ locations within its radius for a
short time. It is incredibly useful for removing dug in players and revealing
people protecting objectives.
Decoy grenades offer an effective means of
annoyance as they cause noise and make your enemies radar light up as if there
is a gunfight occurring nearby. EMP grenades are useful as they disrupt your
enemies HUD and smoke grenades are a shooter classic that will cause clouds of smoke to
impair your enemy’s vision. Each grenade serves a unique purpose but if you are
having a tough time deciding which to use then we suggest you pick the sensor. Having the
ability to reveal your enemies' location is always useful and this one even helps out
Equipped with various machines
to aid your team, the Engineer really has some of the most interesting
equipment in the game. Two UAV's offer you the ability to scout out the map and
reveal your enemies’ location to your team. One variant of UAV also comes
equipped with light offensive power. Cameras can be placed at key locations
throughout a map to offer you warning when someone is approaching you and
Jammers can make it so your enemies’ equipment shuts down in its area of effect.
Finally the Sentry Turret can be placed to offer heavy defensive fire to any
location and help your team hold key objectives. The toughest decision to make
is which equipment to bring along and you want to make sure to pick not only one
that you enjoy using but one that you think will help lead your team to
