Halo 4 Engineer Loadouts Tips and Strategy

The Drop Recon armor mod allows users to predict the location and time of an ordnance drop through an external suborbital monitoring system.

Communication is the key point here and when that is added to the mix with the Engineer Specialization, you basically have the opportunity grab the enemy by their… tails.

Equipping the Drop Record Armor Mod lets players know when the Infinity Ordnance is coming and what is it holding. The Engineer will be shown the exact way point of the drop and the type of weapon it’s boasting prior to the drop entering the map.

This provides a great advantage to teams as they can move before hand and take use of whatever the Infinity Ordnance drop is bringing. For more help on Halo 4 loadouts, read our Wetwork, Pioneer and Operator Loadouts.

Recommended Setups

Loadout#1

Specialization: Engineer
Primary Weapon: DMR
Secondary Weapon: Storm Rifle
Grenade Type: Frag
Armor Ability: Hologram
Tactical Package: Firepower
Support Upgrade: Dexterity

This loadout is especially useful when playing small 4v4 maps. Storm Rifle is an essential in this loadout as it allows fast movement around the map.

The Armor Ability; Hologram, gives you a split-second difference when ducking around a corner which is especially useful in close combat.

Loadout#2

Specialization: Engineer
Primary Weapon: DMR
Secondary Weapon: Plasma Pistol
Grenade Type: Plasma
Armor Ability: Jet Pack
Tactical Package: Mobility
Support Upgrade: Ordinance Priority

This is a loadout for huge maps with vehicles.  Jet Pack and Mobility package are a given, as they’ll help you get around faster. Additionally, the DMR facilitates long-range action while the Plasma weapons allow vehicle neutralization.

Loadout#3

Specialization: Engineer
Primary Weapon: DMR / Lightrifle
Secondary Weapon: Magnum
Grenade Type: Frag
Armor Ability: Active Camo / Jet Pack / Promethean Vision
Tactical Package: Mobility
Support Upgrade: Drop Recon

You’ll be needing the Active Camo Or Jet Pack ability to reach the necessary coordinates in anticipation of the drop. You can choose to either escape detection or go forth through higher ground, whatever helps you reach the drop quickly.

Weapons are based on your play style and map. Medium range and close combat weapons would be good because you will need to go in order to retrieve the package. Otherwise you can always play point guard and look over the drop from a vantage point.
