Killzone 3 Multiplayer Career Progression – Engineer

Victor Zuylen's Avatar + Posted by Victor Zuylen on Feb 21, 2011 // Editor, Killzone Community

Today we are showing the first of five videos demonstrating how Killzone 3’s career progression can be tracked through Killzone.com.

Each video will highlight one multiplayer career from Killzone 3, including all of its abilities and key weapons, and show how it’s interlinked with Killzone.com. We kick off the series with the Engineer, an excellent support class with distinct defensive and offensive capabilities. The voice over for the video is by Dan Nanni, Multiplayer Designer at Guerrilla.

Keep an eye on the official PlayStation.Blog and Killzone.com in the coming days for the other career progression videos. Enjoy!

That looks great. Loved the clip where he repaired a turret, then there was an enemy there to destroy it, and he just shot the guy. Classic.

Game looks great.

I prefer the tactician.

You’re a little slow on those video, Sony, I’ll have the game before they’re all released.

The Engineer class was my most favorite class when I played the Beta. In fact, I liked it so much that I ranked it up all the way, and will probably do the same for the game when its released.

I have to play as Tactician most of the time to make sure I have spawns, but I like using all the classes.

I’ve never been able to get close enough to hack a bot….didn’t even think it was possible. Any type of secret to avoid being obliterated by it?

+ Juelz345 on February 21st, 2011 at 10:07 am said:

@18

I think one of the perks (or whatever they’re called) allows you to be undetectable by turrets and bots.

I think…

+ MoneyMaker110 on February 21st, 2011 at 10:10 am said:

the hacking could be useful. i’m guessing that’s a higher level ability?

multiplayer…. Bah… no fun at all… enjoy for those who are into that sorta thing..

+ D-Squad3 on February 21st, 2011 at 10:13 am said:

Look how much he’s missing, especially when aiming down the sites. Shows how unprecise the aiming is but GG doesn’t seem to ever notice it. I mean how can this game go through testers and not have any negative feedback on the aiming? Isn’t that why you guys made the “Tester”? So those “testers” can test the game? Well you guys need to fix the aiming.


23

+ Aggie_CEO on February 21st, 2011 at 10:13 am said:

@19 I have seen that the infiltrator(spy) class can do that I believe….but not the Engie…..I had unlocked the hack ability and kept getting wasted in the first beta…didnt even try it in the second


24

+ DazeOfWar on February 21st, 2011 at 10:17 am said:

Can’t wait. I won’t have mine till Thursday cause I ordered it from Amazon but it was worth it. $20 Amazon cash for future order makes the sharp shooter a definite purchase for me now.

We need spawn on squad leader back. Please pass it on.

+ Blkant on February 21st, 2011 at 10:19 am said:

Got my copy today, you guys seriously need to add more vehicles online, especially one that supports more than one player… These two are just laughable… Especially when not put against one another.

Please consider it for future DLC, a jeep or buggy etc… something like that so we can work together with friends on one vehicle.

Thank you.

When will they have Killzone avatar IDs, We should get a Killzone avatar for preodering Killzone 3. Like God of War the ghost of sparta did, that avatar looked sick, even though I don’t have it. lol

Just 3 primary weapons per class? thats dissapointing.


30

+ StealthReborn– on February 21st, 2011 at 10:32 am said:

@ 22….

Umm…How do you “fix aiming” that’s completely out of GG’s control. It’s up to the player on how they aim, and aim assist doesn’t have much of an impact either.

It’s completely unacceptable to blame GG for someones poor aim, give me a break…

+ Terminator_1K on February 21st, 2011 at 10:43 am said:

@19

I unlocked all the perks for the Engineer in the last Beta that ended on 2-15-11 and I couldn’t see how to hack turrets?


32

+ letherclad on February 21st, 2011 at 10:50 am said:

I wish the engineer had a more diverse weapon set, two LMGs are not useful, should have diversified it with a shotgun or something, but still a really good class to play as.

I can’t wait until tomorrow, wish it came out today since I have today off…


33

+ XXHemmorageXX on February 21st, 2011 at 10:52 am said:

@22, what a terrible troll you are, how can GG make people not suck? LMAO. Thats not on GG, thats on the bad player. GG are not magicians. Aiming and gun feel has always been top notch in killzone games.

I picked up my Helghast Edition and my sharpshooter today YAY lol, I’ll be playing the Campaign after lunch!!! I also bought BulletStorm as Icing on the cake, it’s gonna be a FUN week!!! 8)

@Erick_34 did you know you can pre-order those at GameStop and make sure you get those at launch

I am so exited for the release!! Are there gonna be any demo places in Future Shop of Best Buy or anywhere that I can text the new assault rifle attachment for the move, before I buy it? Thanks!

+ Nazcar247 on February 21st, 2011 at 11:15 am said:

Thats not the right SMG -.- unless they switched it from the beta.


38

+ jqtaxpayer on February 21st, 2011 at 11:15 am said:

Whoever’s controlling this Engineer spends a lot of time out in the open — and whoever he’s up against is pretty awful for not being able to take him down, lol.

Anyway, got my preorder in with Amazon, really looking forward to taking KZ3 for a spin tomorrow evening.

@22
Programming an aiming mechanism to be precise is cake, programming it to be realistic is another matter in of itself. If they wanted you to be super precise they would have just charted the vector of where the bullet was fired from and whether or not your body was in the way of it during the correct point in time in the bullets travel (did you get shot or not).

The difficulty comes in when you have recoil which has to be done all in game unless they turned on Sixaxis functionality and made it super sensitive to gun fire rumble (which people would hate). Then you have to take in factors like cheap bullets, the environment, body armor, etc and so forth.

you’ll also notice that this player is pretty hardcore, no crosshair on screen to focus his eyes where the bullets would go. Thats an option, not a requirement.

Killzone 3 is fine with aiming and perhaps the best I’ve experienced in some time.

@Skater_Ricky i know, i pre-order Killzone 3 Helghast edition but i not pre-order the Sharp Shooter because at gamestop they told me that the date to pre-order it had expired, but they told me you can still buy it when it arrives.


44

+ Juelz345 on February 21st, 2011 at 12:34 pm said:

@23 and 31

Well maybe not then.

I played as the engineer most of the time that I played the beta, but never tried to hack.

But should you be able to approach the turrets from the back? They didn’t have a 360 degree turn radios did they?


45

+ mustbehiggy on February 21st, 2011 at 12:42 pm said:

Everyone commenting on the fact the player is not very good is just stupid. You see they are playing Bots and probably running dev tools to make themselves unable to die, hence they never take any damage even though they are out in the open being shot at.

This was a demo video in order to show you some of the features of a the Engineer, not a video to show you how to be amazing at the game.
