The Engineer

The Widowmaker is a promotional primary weapon for the Engineer. It is a futuristic green Shotgun styled after the Widowmaker TX, a weapon available in Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

This weapon uses the Engineer's metal as its source of ammunition; each shot fired will consume 60 metal. Each point of damage done to an enemy with the Widowmaker is returned to the Engineer as metal. Additionally, the weapon has no requirement to reload, as the ammo draws straight from the Engineer's metal supply.

The Widowmaker is awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-purchase Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Steam before August 26, 2011.

Update history

August 18, 2011 Patch (Manno-Technology Bundle)

  • The Widowmaker was added to the game.


  • Damaging multiple enemies with a single shot will give an incorrect amount of metal back to the Engineer. The amount is usually the equivalent of one or two pellets of damage (3 - 18) rather than the total damage of the attack. With the 60 metal cost per attack, the Engineer will generally lose metal even if the total damage dealt is above 60.
  • When equipped with the Gunslinger, the Engineer's gloved hand remains gloved, regardless of which weapon is equipped.
  • The small size of this weapon causes the Engineer's finger to extend slightly beyond the end of the barrel.
