They appear to be a pig mutated into a man with metal pipes protruding through its right arm and back. A metal plate appears riveted above its right eye, and it has a distorted left arm that seems to be split in two, having the upper half holding the lower half and both of them wrapped in bandages.
The Engineers appear to be the more brutal form of the Manpigs, and they treat the Wretches with a certain degree of contempt. In the Nest of Wretches, an Engineer and a Wretch cross paths, and the Engineer violently slams the Wretch aside and to the ground.
A tougher counterpart of the Wretch, the engineers are encountered in the mid/late parts of the game. They are seen acting like foot soldiers, kidnapping the citizens of London when The Machine gave them the command.
Engineers are found in the following locations:
- Factory (Visual)
- Factory Sewers (Visual)
- Engine Rooms (High Risk)
- Streets (High Risk)
- Pigline (Visual)
- Tesla 2 (Visual)
- The Engineer's physical appearance shares some similar features to the Brute from the previous game, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, such as metal fixings that were grafted onto their bodies.
- In the teaser trailer, a monster is seen smashing down a door; the only actual part seen of the enemy was the hand, which is the same as the Engineer's. Therefore, it is likely that the Engineer was the monster in the trailer.
