Overview[]

The Frontier Engineer, like most units trained at the Frontier Recruitment HQ, has an exceptionally high critical chance, which increases with ranks. The Engineer is pretty much a straightforward Grenadier with high damage (taking into consideration the high critical chance).

The damage is also comparable to the Allied Boom Boom. The Boom-Boom has the benefit of higher base damage, but the Engineer's critical chance makes up for that difference in many situations.

Both have comparable defensive stats, although the Boom-Boom has much higher Stat-HP.png. The Boom-Boom is harder to rank up than the Engineer, too. The Engineer shines most because of its low cost, anti-air toss, and low UV.
