USCM Squad Engie.png
Squad Engineer Squad engineer icon.png
Difficulty: Medium
Supervisors: Squad Leader
Rank: Lance Corporal
Duties: Set up defenses, babysit big guns, open doors and spam barbed wire.
Guides: Construction, Guide to Engineering
Detailed Description:
|__________|
You have the equipment and skill to build fortifications, reroute power lines, and bunker down.
Your squaddies will look to you when it comes to construction in the field of battle.
|__________|

But the good news — we got four of these robot sentries with display and scanners intact. They really kick ass, I think they'll come in handy. ―Corporal Hicks, Aliens

As a Squad Engineer, your main goals will be fixing power, getting through doors, and setting up fortifications for a FOB (Forward Operating Base) that'll be used for defense and to secure a supply route. Without you, your platoon will have no power or a FOB which is critical for mission success.

Squad Engineer

You'll have two different playstyles you can experiment with. One, as a FOB building and Utility Engineer, who sets up defences and makes sure power is running. The second way to play Engineer is to be a Combat Engineer, breaching walls, hacking open doors, welding vents and repairing broken APC and lights as marines advance. Both are as good as the other, but too much of one is bad. Make sure there is a FOB that will be able to be defended, and if there is one, make sure marines will be able to make it from building to building effectively.

Cost:18 Points
A secure box holding anti-personnel proximity mines. There are 4 M20 Claymore anti-personnel mines per mine box.
Deployment and Deactivation:
How To Deploy A Mine:
  • Take a M20 mine out of the box with an empty hand,
  • Stand on top of the tile you want to place the mine on,
  • Face the tile you want the mine to detect enemies on,
  • Click on the mine in your active hand.

Keep in mind that any mob that enters the mine's tile, or the tile it's facing, living or dead, will cause the mine to detonate unless they have an appropriate USCM/Company ID.

How To Deactivate Mines:

  • Multitool.png Use a Security Access Tuneron the deployed mine.
Tactics:
  • Deploy the mines at where marines will likely be present/guarding (and within view range), thus more likely to result in a kill.
  • The trigger area is two tiles, the mine's tile and the tile it's facing. Cover the whole two tiles corridor instead of leaving one tile open.
  • Conceal the mines with (lit) flare, empty flare box, wood plank, unfolded roller bed, empty backpacks, etc.
  • Deploy the mines facing north or west, because they can easily be concealed with a lit flare.

Defensive Equipment Vendor.png Engineer System Vendor SentryGun.png

You'll have to choose what defensive equipment to vend. You can only pick one so it’s worth discussing with your fellow engineer (if you have one) for the one that best suits your squads needs. For a comparison between the M56D and the Sentry, see the latest replies in

M56D vs. sentries.
Equipment: Description:

80mm Fragmentation Shell.png

80mm Fragmentation Shell

Causes direct impact damage upon the tile hit after which it releases shrapnel in all directions.
Usage:
  • Anyone with Trained level of engineering can deploy the Mortar but you'll need Expert level of engineering to use it.
  • Recruit a squad member to be your spotter and make sure they have tactical binoculars.
  • Send your newly recruited spotter to ascertain coordinates of enemy positions. Once in your active hand click on the binoculars then Ctrl Click an enemy position and wait, once the binoculars beep you'll be given coordinates in chat.
  • Upon receiving the longitude and latitude coordinates, enter them into the Target section.

Note: After entering in a target the mortar will fire upon being loaded.

  • Load a flare shell and after it has fired notify your spotter to inform you of any corrections that need to be given. For more accurate spotter adjustments it's better to fire a smoke/flash shell as they both only leave an explosion mark on the impacted tile.
  • Once the spotter has relayed the corrections to you, enter them into the Dial section.

Note: The further away your target is the less accurate the mortar becomes so you will have to correctly offset it more.

  • Keep firing on that position until new coordinates are given.

Example: The flare lands and the spotter notices that it missed the targetted area by 4 tiles east and 3 tiles south and relays that to you. You would then dial the offset as -4 Longitude and 3 Latitude.

Equipment and Gear

Metal and Sandbags

At round start, there are 10 plasteel sheets and 25 metal sheets in the prep room. Plasteel is an expensive but very resistant material at your disposal. More can be purchased at your equipment closet or as supplies start trickling in through the ASRS, you maybe able to acquire more. Don't hoard loads of building supplies otherwise you might find fellow Squad Engineers unable to perform their jobs.

Linking Plasteel Barricades Plasteel Barricade.gif

You can link plasteel barricades together with a crowbar. This is can used for making a gate for the tank. It requires at least 2 plasteel barricades facing the same direction and same state in order for it to work.

Your Gear

Get your gear from the Squad Engineer prep room. Most notable gear are:

  • Goggles.png Welding Goggles are used to avoid eye damage when welding. Remember to flip them down before you start.
  • Webbing.png Webbings is spawned with your jumpsuit to allow you the quality of storage. Holds 3 normal size items.
  • Insulated Gloves.png The gloves in your locker are insulated gloves. If you lose them, get another pair from the vendor.
  • For backpacks, you can choose from these two out of the vendor:
    • Welderpack.png Welderpack that holds 5 normal size items with 260 units of welding fuel.
    • Engineering backpack that holds 7 normal size items.

In the field

Power and T-Comms

Upon the first deployment, you are likely to be tasked to either fixing the Power, building the Portable Telecommunications Tower or FOB duty.

Overcoming obstacles

  • Crowbar.png Use a crowbar to pry open powered down doors.
  • Hack doors to open previously locked passageways.
  • C4.png C4 doors/walls if you don't have time to hack/deconstruct.


Lighting up the place

Fix the APC's and replace broken lights with the light replacer along the way as you advance.

Floodlight Repair

While you may have fixed the power for the colony (and turned on the Colony Floodlight Switch Colony Floodlight Switch.gif), the xenomorphs will have most likely broken floodlights around the place which you'll need to fix. To fix a floodlight you'll want to use the following steps:

Broken Floodlight.png = Screwdriver -> Crowbar -> Welder -> Cable Coil -> Screwdriver

  • Emergency Floodlights can be unwrenched and be moved around.


Make use of vendors

  • Wrench.png Use a wrench to move useful vendors like medical vendor to a FOB then Hack them to allow medics and marines to vendor the items.

Securing flanks/supply route

It's crucial to secure the supply route from FOB to the front. Otherwise, reinforcements, Medics, and wounded marines will be easy targets to be picked off and the front will risk being cut off and encircled. Since material supply might be limited under certain circumstance so you can't barricade all the way; instead, you need to focus on the choke points like doorways, to secure as many sections you can with the little materials you have. You can save some materials by simply welding doors shut along the way. And once marines have learned that can Xenos use vents, you can weld the vents shut to deny their usage. You can also use vendors/cabinets as blockades to save more materials but they can potentially block bullets as well, resulting in a potential cover for aliens.

Your flanks are a vital part of your frontlines, FOBs and supply lines. The enemy will always try to find a way to breach your vulnerable locations and pick off your fellow team mates. If you think they can breach into your vulnerable flanks or supply lines, secure it.

In the Front

This is where the combat engineer shines and determines whether or not the marines will gain a foothold or be routed after their initial push. There are three main types of barricade lines you can build in the front, but there are some principles that apply to all.

  • Build the barricades inward for more firing space and bigger kill zone
  • Force the enemy into the choke point/corridor so fewer of them can attack at once (and block each other when they retreat)
  • Distant the barricades to enemies' nearest corners/covers, thus exposing them with more firepower before they can reach the barricades and when they retreat
  • Build the barricades with marines standing one tile behind in mind


Barricade Layout: Description:
Killingzone.png The original barricade line makes a small chokepoint which can't effectively utilise the full power of the marines in the area; to fix this the barricade defence could've been constructed on the red line to allow for additional marines to fire or even further back on the blue line to use the xenos cover against them and create a two tile chokepoint that will expose them to more gunfire, while also keeping the defending marines at a safe distance.


✔ Large kill zone.

✔ Forces the enemy to walk past a choke, Exposing them to more fire on their attempted exit

✔ Two tiles from the enemies nearest position with cover. (Meaning they have to expose themselves to push)

✔ Marines standing one tile behind the barricaded position so they can't be slashed but can still hold the barricade itself.

Inward3.png This is an example of what not to do when constructing a barricade position.

By having the barricades extend outwards it places the defending marines into the chokepoint giving them a disadvantage during combat.

Inward4.png This is an example of what you should do when constructing a barricade position.

By having the barricades extend inwards it utilises the chokepoint making it harder for the xenos to push through.


Frontline FOB/Outpost

A secured space slightly behind the front for marines to resupply, triage and casevac. Without a frontline FOB, Medics and the wounded will be harassed constantly and supply melted. And in the event of counterattack, marines will likely to be routed without a place to fall back to. Frontline FOB doesn't need to be big (a 6x6 space will do, bigger if high pop), otherwise, parts of the FOB likely be left unguarded and be melted.

Secured barricade line

Build at a choke point, apply the principles, and you get a decent defensive position. To reinforce a barricade line, build barricades one tile in front of the barricade line not behind.

Unsecured barricades

Mostly seen when you want to build a secured barricade line but ran out of plasteel, so you have to leave some gaps. While they are not fully secured, they are still useful to hinder counter attacks and block off Boiler gas and Crusher charge. To avoid hindering marines' push, you can build them in the middle of the corridor (e.g. middle 2 tiles out of 4 tiles), then the sides tiles in further one tile.

Barricade as marines push

Sandbags are particularly well suited for this job, as they can be built by marines and the build time is short. Metal barricades (with barbed wire) work too, though instead of standing in the front and build there, it's much safer to build it just behind the front then move them to the front (See this table for how to move barricades).

Robotic limbs repairing

Target the damaged limb and use:

  • Welder.gif Blowtorch for brute damage.
  • CableCoils.png Cable coils for burn damage.


FOB Duty

As an Engineer on FOB duty, you'll be setting up the base that the marines will primarily use to organize, resupply, to retreat to, and to make a final last stand. To make a good FOB, you'll want to make strategic use of your landmines, the smartgun HMG or the sentry gun, and various defensive emplacements. A good FOB is a difference between losing the round and holding off long enough to make a push back and finally win the round.

The Construction page will have everything you need to construct a FOB, from wooden barricades to plasteel barricades. It also includes many other helpful things for an engineer to build around the FOB, or elsewhere.

Principles

Ghost and see where isn't vital after FOB has fallen
One breach is all it takes
One is enough
Fancy and bad

You don't always need a mega FOB

LZ/FOB will only see poking most of the round until siege happens because FOB is a hard target. Thus, Hunters/Runners are likely to focus on marine's unsecured sections of the supply route. Focusing your effort solely on FOB means using a large amount of material to counter a token force while ignoring the threat targeting the more vulnerable areas. Instead, you need to secure flanks/supply route.

Barricade where enemy can't bypass

While Xeno will try to flank you, your job is to make them a hard time to do so. If you build barricades in where they don't matter (not part of the supply route/no marine will be there), you will do Xeno a favour as there will be fewer defences in where that do matter.


It is the weakest point that matters

It doesn't matter there are three layers of barricades in Nexus if the one layer metal barricades at LZ is breached, the wounded and the supply will be killed and melted. Even worse, Xeno can ignore Nexus entirely and focus on LZ then everything in Nexus will be wasted.


Use materials wisely

Plasteel is expensive, 40 points for 30 plasteel (6 doors) vs. 20 points for 50 metal (8 barricades with barbed wire). Yet plasteel is crucial to how many secure spaces you can create. If you are out of plasteel, you are forced to keep an opening in the cade line, thus compromising the effect of the barricade line.

A corridor with traffic? A plasteel barricade with barbed wire. No traffic but a high threat (e.g., Crusher charge/constant poking)? Sandbags barricades with barbed wire. No traffic and want to keep Runners out? Metal barricades with barbed wire. And try to save materials by

  • Welder.gif Use blowtorch on the vents/doors. (Goggles.png Flip down before you start.)
  • Wrench.png Use wrench to move vendors/cabinets/hydro trays as blockades (hydro trays don't block Runner).
  • Then build barricades behind them if it's high threat and if you can spare the supplies.



FOB Construction Quick Tips

Barricade Placement

Barricade Placement Description
WIKIFOB.png

This is an example of what not to do when constructing a defensive position.

In the picture on the left, you'll see that the xenomorphs can hit the barricade without being shot due to its forward position and as such the xeno will be able to break through and kill that marine with ease.

WIKIFOB2.png

This is an example of what you should do when constructing a defensive position.

To rectify the above barricade placement errors you'll want to move the barricades back one tile like the photo on the left. By moving the barricades back this will allow you to shoot xenomorphs who are attacking them.


Barbed Wire

Barbed Wire.pngBarbed wire is a string of sharp metal that will harm and prevent xenos from pouncing over barricades once attached. It also gives a small health boost to the barricade itself.

Barbed Wire Tactics Description
Barbedwirenone.png
In the picture you'll see that the engineer was killed due to the xeno being able to pounce over the barricade.
Barbedwireyes.png

Due to the engineer placing barbed wire onto the barricades the xenomorph was unable to jump over.


FOB Space

How To: Fob Space Description
BadFOBspace.png

This is an example of what not to do when constructing a defensive position.

In the picture you'll see that the FOB has very little space for the marines to move around in which will lead to:

  • Friendly fire.
  • Shuffling of positions.
  • Preventing wounded marines from entering.
  • Hindering the movement of supplies.
Goodmovement.png

This is an example of what you should do when constructing a defensive position.

In the picture you'll see that the FOB has ample space to move which means:

  • The reduction of friendly fire.
  • Less shuffling of positions.
  • Ease of access for wounded traffic.
  • Free movement of supplies.


Fixing Breaches in Defences

Fixing Defensive Breaches Description
Bad breaches.png

This is an example of what not to do when attempting to fix a breach in the defensive line with hostiles nearby.

In the picture you'll see that this is a highly dangerous and ineffective way to fix the breach in a defensive line if hostiles are nearby. This will let you get slashed up by an alien running up willy nilly and will give you less time to react if multiple Xenos decide to push the defensive line.

FIXINGBREACHES.png

This is an example of what to do when attempting to fix a breach in the defensive line with hostiles nearby.

In the picture you'll see that it shows the optimal way of repairing a breach in your defenses if Xenos are nearby.

To perform this fixing maneuver, you'll want to:

  • Build (or unsecure for redeployment) a barricade a few tiles back,
  • Screwdriver.pngScrewdriver the freshly built barricade,
  • Wrench.pngWrench it, to allow it to be moved,
  • Pull the barricade (Ctrl + Click or open up the right click menu) and then pull it to the tile below you (By clicking on the tile), and then finally the breached tile as demonstrated in the photo.
  • Wrench then screwdriver the barricade to secure it again.


This will force the xenomorphs to run into the FOB to attack you, and put themselves at risk of death due to being in the FOB. This method takes much more time than the above one, however, the safety gained from doing it is worth it's weight in attachments ten times over. If there are no hostiles at all, building it in the normal manner is perfectly acceptable.


Misc. FOB tips

Fob Tips Description
Windows.png

In the picture you'll see that it demonstrates that windows, even if reinforced, are not an acceptable replacement for a line of all-American steel barricades.
Windows as a defence:

  • Provides no firing lines
  • Weak

In summary, avoid using them as a defence.

Frontnotbehind.png
If you have a secured barricade line and you want to strengthen it, put the extra barricades in front of the secured barricade line not behind, and don't block the plasteel barricades. And if you can make a secured cade line, make one, checkerboard barricades do nothing to hinder the aliens' attack.
Repairingbarricades.png

Barricades will end up damaged due to the ravages of war and incompetence, and if it isn't heavily damaged, you'll be able to use a blowtorch on it to repair it. This works on metal and plasteel barricades. Note that if a barricade is too damaged, you will be unable to fix it.

Each time you repair a barricade, it will consume one unit of welder fuel.

Alighdoors.png

Align the plasteel barricades to reduce traffic jam.

Doortoside.png
Place the plasteel barricade at the side reduce the chance retreating marines blocking defensive fire. It also avoids two marines getting in the way of each other when both are exiting/entering.
Middle door traffic jam.gif
Maze barricades bad.png

Maze-like barricades serve no purpose as Xeno will not follow the corridor, they will slash them down with no regard yet marines will surfer traffic jam. Instead, align the exit with plasteel.

Marine Defences

Structures: Description:
Defence-Generator.png
G3-N Phoron Generator
The most commonly used source for planetside powering of defences. Produces high output with a special phoron blend with minimal heat. The most crucial component when constructing ground defences as it powers all the defensive structures. It has a 7 tile radius for powering up defensive structures.

It's fuelled by the resource collector.

Resource-Collector.png
Resource Collector
The newest technology from Weston-Yamada, a portable collector of the precious resource phoron. Phoron is used as fuel for the generators. The life blood of generators and defensive structures. These resource collectors must be placed on plasma gas nodes. Once placed they'll automatically collect fuel for the generators.
Defence Frame.png
Defence Frame
An unfinished turret frame. Insert a defence module and weld to complete. This is the basis for all defence platforms to be built upon. Requires five (5) metal sheets to construct.
SentryGun.png
UA 571-C Sentry Gun
The Sentry Gun automatically tracks and fires upon any target that is wearing an ID not hooked up to the Almayer's systems. Via IFF, they are unable to hit friendly marines, allowing them to be safely placed behind marine lines as they lay down suppressing fire. The sentry has a 135 degree firing arc with a steady fire rate. Has 500 bullets.


Ammunition:

Tesla-Coil.png
21S Tesla Coil
A perfected way of producing high-voltage, low-current and high frequency electricity. Minor modifications allow it to only hit hostile targets with a devastating shock. When hostile targets are zapped, they are significantly slowed down. It has a maximum range of 5 tiles, though if other defence modules are placed next to it, they'll be disabled.
Bell-Tower.png
R-1NG bell tower
A tactical advanced version of a normal alarm. Designed to trigger an old instinct ingrained in humans when they hear a wake-up alarm, for fast response. It has a 1 tile range, meaning anything next to it will trigger the alarm. Though if the same hostile enters the range again, they won't trigger it. It will only trigger when a different hostile entity enters the bell tower's range.
Defence-Flag.png
JIMA Planted Flag
A planted flag with the iconic USCM flag plastered all over it, you feel a burst of energy by its mere sight. An inspiring piece of work that just screams of freedom. This flag once activated, provides a permanent Focus and Hold order buff to all nearby marines within a 3 tile radius. Multiple flags overlapping will not improve the buff but if placed correctly, it will extend it.
