A tougher counterpart of the Wretch. The engineers are seen 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.
They appear to be a pig mutated into a man with metal pipes protruding through its right arm and back. A metal plate appears above its right eye and 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.
Engineers are found in the following locations:
- Factory Sewers (Visual)
- Engine Rooms (High Risk)
- Streets (High Risk)
- Pigline (Visual)
- Tesla: Electrogravitic Suppression - South Tower (Visual)
- The Engineer's physical appearance shares some similar features to a Brute's appearance, such as metal fixings that were grafted onto their bodies.
- The Engineers appear to be the more brutal of the Manpigs, and they treat the Wretches with a certain degree of contempt. When, in the Nest of Wretches, an Engineer and a Wretch cross paths, the Engineer can be seen violently slamming the Wretch aside and to the ground. The Wretch eventually gets up and hobbles away.
- 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.
