Class Information

Purchase for 15,000 XP

The Engineer spawns with a stone sword, TNT and a blaze rod titled 'Evertool'.

Bunker Buster

You can left-click your Bunker Buster to change the size of its explosion. There are three different sizes, each with increasing explosion radius and fuse time:

  • Dynamite : 1.7 radius / 19 millisecond fuse
  • C4 : 3.5 radius / 6 second fuse
  • Nuke : 5 radius / 10 second fuse

Unlike vanilla Minecraft TNT, the Engineer's TNT makes a very loud hissing noise and emits particles while its fuse is lit. Your TNT will only blow up enemy-placed blocks, not teammate-placed or naturally occurring blocks. Enemies can defuse your TNT by right clicking on it, which is instant. This means that while a Nuke will do more damage, it will be easier for enemies to defuse. Regardless of your chosen size, the TNT has a 30-second cooldown.

Delay blocks will instantly defuse C4 and Nuke when placed within 5 blocks of them.


When you die you will explode, dealing 1 true damage to any nearby enemies.


Upon looking at a block and mining it with your Evertool, it will change into the tool required to break the block you're mining. The Evertool can transform into most stone tools, including shears. This tool will never break. The Evertool cannot transform into a sword, which is intended as the delay between switching would be too great in a PvP situation.


  • The Engineer can destroy enemy walls with ease using its Bunker Buster.
  • The Evertool can break nearly every block type, even wool, making it great for taking down bridges or clearing leaves en masse.
  • The Evertool is great for tunneling into enemy land as well as getting out of Swapper traps.
  • The Engineer is not as affected by the mining fatigue from the Builder's delaying blocks.
  • Martyrdom is a nice plus and can sometimes finish off enemies.


  • TNT makes sound and can be defused by enemies.
  • The Builder's delaying blocks will highlight any placed TNT within their radius, letting enemies easily defuse them.
  • Enemies can hear you breaking blocks if you are tunneling beneath them.
  • Delay Blocks will defuse C4 and Nuke if placed too close to them.

Tips & Tactics

  • Rush enemy bases and make holes in their walls for your teammates to rush through.
  • Use the Evertool to break down enemy bridges and leaves wherever possible.
  • Was your middle griefed? Goldmine filled with blocks by the enemy? Use your TNT to quickly get rid of any obstructions built by enemies.
  • With your Evertool you can tunnel underground for an extended period of time without worrying about tool durability.
  • Placing your TNT underground can be an effective strategy as it can obscure its particles from enemies and make it harder for them to get to the TNT. The C4 and Nuke settings are powerful enough to destroy blocks above ground even when placed below.
  • When you place your TNT, try as hard as possible to make it difficult for your enemies to defuse it. You can do this by placing blocks, placing your TNT underground, etc.
  • Your TNT is affected by gravity but cannot explode while falling. It only starts its fuse when it lands on a block. This also means placing your TNT onto cobwebs will not make it explode until it falls through.
