    Gears of War 4 Horde Mode Engineer Class Build

    As we have already discussed in our other Gears of War 4 Horde Mode Class Guides, it eventually comes to individual playstyle and the type of Team Comp. you are running which should dictate your build.

    If you, however, want to play to the strengths of Engineer Class, you should definitely check out a combination of Build Cost, Fortification Health, Repair Boost, Sentry Capacity, and Sentry Speed.

    This build basically revolves around the strengths of the Engineer Class. You do not have to dish out crazy amount of damage in order to be relevant as a squad member.

    All you need to do while running this build is to make sure that you are placing the fortifications actively and repairing them regularly – because you gain advantage from discounts.

    This is all we have on Gears of War 4 Horde Mode Engineer Class Guide. If there is anything else you would like to add, let us know in the comments section below!
