Take it from me an Engineering Truck. I’ve gotten some several thousand effy(efficiency) points. Sometimes even 5k.
Also there seems to be a lack of engineers with skill.
Ship Mods - Not Detailed
Enhanced Scanner - Allows you to know where your target is before he does.
Catalyst Injector - Allows you to get to an objective before he does. On my T2 fed engi build i got faster than any fighter. I believe is was 350 mps or 450.
I also try to increase hull and shield strength without sacrificing anything else.
Weapons and Missiles
Heavy Blaster - High spread enables you to get drunk intys and focus fire fighters and frigates. I know it takes a while to start up. They will be the mid to finishing touch on your enemies. They always seemed like a cross between a shotgun and a machine gun with slow startup time
Coil mortars are only good on LRFs with 6 turrets.
Attack Drones - Allows you to attack your opponent way before he even knows you are there.
YOU ARE AN ENGINEER SO ACT LIKE ONE!!
Always have your healing mods, Nanodrone Cloud and the Mass Shield Generator, on unless your teammates around you are not engaging an enemy and you want to preserve your afterburners to get to a location.
Nanocomposite Coating - You will usually not exhaust your hull strength, unless you charge in like an idiot, with this mod.
Coupled with your Nanodrone Cloud it will be very hard to dent your hull without some piercing missiles.
IR Flares - Speaking of missiles this build is very fragile to missiles because you rely on drones. This is a must have. Drones will do massive damage. All 4 of them will at least do 1200 damage each second.
Even while running away I have destroyed multiple enemies with my drones. Have the keybind that allows you to target the person targeting you. i choose “T” because it is near my left hand and close to the othering default targeting keys.
Use your IR Flare as soon as you hear the missile incoming sound or see it on your screen. Without it you will be extremely crippled without your drones to any inty coming behind you.
As soon as your shields are down turn on the nano coating.
Look at your minimap, preferably the 2d one, and face that direction to see any incoming enemies. Target the unlucky soul and watch your attack drones flay him. Make sure the enemy is not so far away. you will need as many drones as you can to defend against nearby incoming idiots.
Remember that your attack drones do not warp with you. If you are in a map without warpgates launch them as soon as you come out. If there are then launch them as soon as you exit the warpjump. It takes a while for drones to follow you to a location.
Comment and put other ways to effectively use an Engy.
