The Best TF2 Engineer Weapons

The Engineer is another character that can be found playing in Team Fortress 2 and is a vital team member. The main goal of Engineers is to help the team and improve its performance by creating buildings. In his arsenal, the Engineer has almost everything to provide help to his allies at any time. Here you will find a list of the best TF2 Engineer weapons that help him successfully fulfill his mission!

For more information about the Engineer, as well as additional Engineer tips and tricks, take a look at our TF2 Engineer guide.

The Best TF2 Engineer Weapons

You can buy TF2 skins in two different ways:

  • Steam (has its own trading platform)
  • 3rd party services such as DMarket. Because gamers want to trade without fees and easily withdraw money from their accounts (Steam does not provide such an opportunity).

1. Wrangler

TF2 Wrangler
  • Type: Secondary Weapon

  • Starting Price: $0.02

The Wrangler looks like it was constructed from a pistol handle, an old joystick and a small satellite dish that probably belonged to a radar once. The main use of the Wrangler is to take manual control of your own sentry guns and provide them with a shield, a laser pointer, and an increased firing rate. The main drawback of this weapon is that the sentry guns turn off for three seconds upon switching to another weapon from the Wrangler, as well as reduced ammo and repair of the sentry gun while the shield is active.

2. Short Circuit

TF2 Short Circuit
  • Type: Secondary Weapon

  • Starting Price: $0.18

The Short Circuit was created by the Team Fortress 2 community and appears to be a futuristic electrical device with probes and cables that stick out. The Short Circuit replaces the Engineer’s right arm when used, and deals 10 points of damage at point-blank range in the form of a burst of electrical energy. The weapon uses the metal supply as ammunition and requires no reload. Its alternative fire is a projectile in the shape of an energy ball. The Short Circuit can’t be crit-boosted, has no chance of random critical hits, and does almost no damage to enemy buildings.

Good and fun video games are always popular, no matter how old they are, and Team Fortress 2 is definitely proof of that statement, but with it being almost fourteen years old, how large of a player base does it actually have?

3. Gunslinger

TF2 Gunslinger
  • Type: Melee Weapon

  • Starting Price: $0.09

The Gunslinger is essentially a robotic prosthetic limb that can be attached to the Engineer’s right hand, replacing the standard Sentry Gun in the process. The Gunslinger provides its user with numerous advantages, such as increased maximum health and a guaranteed critical strike on every third consecutive punch. It also increases the build speed by 150%, reduces metal cost by 23%, and provides you with a faster rotation and firing speed. All this comes at the cost of a 33% smaller health pool, 50% lower damage and no chance of random critical hits.

4. Southern Hospitality

TF2 Southern Hospitality
  • Type: Melee Weapon

  • Starting Price: $0.02

Southern Hospitality was created by the Team Fortress 2 community that can be used by the Engineer and it comes in the form of a pipe wrench that has been heavily modified. The weapon has a spiked knuckle guard attached to it on the side as well as a large spike welded to the top for maximum damage. When it comes to its unique effects, the Southern Hospitality causes opponents to bells for five seconds upon being hit but it has no chance of getting random critical hits and comes with a 20% fire vulnerability.

Team Fortress 2 has been around for quite some time now and is an extremely interesting and fun game to play. It offers the players a wide variety of classes, weapons, and items to choose from which is great but can sometimes be a little overwhelming, especially for new players who are just trying out the game for the first time. Luckily, we have created a Team Fortress 2 Guide for Beginners that should make your first experience a lot more manageable.

5. Jag

TF2 Jag
  • Type: Melee Weapon

  • Starting Price: $0.22

The Jag comes in the form of a tool that is an amalgamation of a pipe wrench and a monkey wrench. While the weapon does provide the user with a 30% increased construction hit speed boost and a 15% faster firing speed, it also comes with a 20% slower repair rate, does 25% less damage, and has a 33% penalty when used against buildings.

6. Eureka Effect

TF2 Eureka Effect
  • Type: Melee Weapon

  • Starting Price: $0.02

The Eureka Effect is a community-created weapon that comes in the shape of a futuristic, yet very retro-like pipe wrench. The handle of it is painted with team colors and the head of the wrench has an atomic symbol etched into it. The Eureka Effect also has a coiled antenna attached to it with a red wire connected to a button on the handle of the wrench. In terms of unique effects, this wrench allows the user to teleport to his spawn area or teleporter exit, as well as providing a 50% lower metal cost when upgrading or building teleporters. To counterbalance this, the user gets 20% less metal from dispensers and pickups and the construction speed boost is lowered by 50%.

As a team-based first-person shooter game, Team Fortress 2 provides its players with a variety of different classes to choose from. Each of them comes with its own unique quirks and mechanics so it is difficult to know which one of them is the best for you. Luckily, our Team Fortress 2 Ultimate Classes Guide should provide you with all the information you need to make the right choice.

7. C.A.P.P.E.R.

TF2 C.A.P.P.E.R.
  • Type: Secondary Weapon

  • Starting Price: $8.98

The C.A.P.P.E.R., also known as the Capper, is a weapon made by the community for the Engineer class in Team Fortress 2, but it can also be used by Scouts. The weapon is essentially a ray gun with a team-colored body that has a silver wire in the front and a small rocket exhaust in the back. The Capper uses AA batteries for ammunition and shoots team-colored lasers at your enemies. The weapon functions exactly like the pistol, however enemies killed by it disintegrate into smoldering orange cinders and disappear, which makes this weapon unique for its cosmetics rather than its game-altering abilities.
