The Engineer rescuing a building from far away

The Rescue Ranger is a primary weapon for the Engineer. It resembles a normal Shotgun, but has a small monitor attached to the back (which resembles ECG meter) and a team-colored cable running from the monitor to the modified muzzle, where a team-colored laser-sight is visible.

Holding the Rescue Ranger gives Engineers the ability to haul their buildings from long range at the expense of 130 Metal provided a direct line of sight . Hauling a building in this way will immediately teleport the building into the Engineer's possession. Hauling a building will mark the Engineer for death, causing him to take mini-crits, up to three seconds after re-deploying the building. The weapon also fires bolts instead of bullets, which can repair friendly buildings that they are fired at. However these abilities come at the cost of ammo; the weapon can only load 4 shots and carry 16 in reserve.

When used with the Eureka Effect the Rescue Ranger's alt-fire has no effect.

The Rescue Ranger was originally contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "Modified Shotgun".

Damage and function times

The Rescue Ranger shoots a single projectile for an estimated 25 medium range. Critical hits deal around 105 damage. This weapon has yet to be officially tested for damage values.

Update history

December 20, 2012 Patch (Mecha Update)

  • The Rescue Ranger was added to the game.

December 21, 2012 Patch

  • Fixed Rescue Ranger bolts using incorrect hit boxes.


  • The readout on the monitor changes shape in depending on whether or not the Engineer has enough metal to activate the weapon's special ability. The waves are large if a teleport is possible, but will be close to flat when your metal supply is insufficient.
