Battlefield 3 engineer class
The Engineer class in Battlefield 3 serves as the main anti-vehicle class, designed to engage both land and air vehicles with an array of rocket launchers. The engineer also serves an important team role: to repair friendly vehicles. The engineer class in Battlefield 3 starts out with an M4A1 carbine for the US side, while the Russian side starts with an AKS-74M. On top of that, the US has a SMAW rocket launcher, while the Russian has an RPG-7.

Engineer tips

The Engineer is most useful against enemy land vehicles with rocket launchers, and enemy aircraft with anti-air missiles such as the Stinger and Igla. On top of that, the engineer can remote control an EOD bot, which can repair vehicles and disarm mines, and a mobile UAV to spot enemies. The engineer is likely the most team-oriented class in Battlefield 3, as it can serve many roles and purposes on the Battlefield 3, but always keep in mind that your main objective is to engage enemy vehicles and repair your own.

    SG553 gets unlocked through the CO-OP mode. Don’t know about the USAS12. Might have something to do with shotguns.

    Engineers do not use mortars, only the Support class.

    I do think that the Sub’s are the best for engineer, P90 or the PP-19. I also like the shot guns as well with frag or slug rounds. Personal best is the P90. Great mid range and close range.

    the EOD bot can be use for xp boost. 1)Find a recluse location( remember it!), 2)lay it down, 3)sucide, 4)then find it again. 5)Shot in three to four times in semi-auto, 6)fix it with repair tool, 7)repeat steps 5-7

    Great detail on this blog. It contains vital default information. Could anyone clarify on the default specializations or are they all set to “none”? Been looking all over for this information and I don’t remember it myself.

    1. Try to use the G36C, it kills quickly
    2. When playing CQ swap to support for one life and drop an ammo kit of somewere near all the flags. This allows you to reload mines, RPG’s and anti air Rockets.
    3. Spot EVERYTHING
    4. Try to plant mines in places you know you will get kills. Watch Tanks ect ( they tend to take the same paths)

    SG553 is the best gun. Here are some tips
    1. Swag between smaw and stinger or rpg and Isla regularly
    2. Lay down AT mines at vehicle hotspots
    3. DO NOT use eod bot you can die while using it
    4.use a good gun i.e. sg553, scar-h
    5. Use either explosive specialisation, ammo or cover

    Why does the American Engy have an AT4 on his back when it can’t even be used on-game?
