Engineer vs Sniper, what are their playstyles

I'm assuming you mean Marksman VS Engineering. If that's so, then Marksman is heavy on cover and all about doing as much damage as possible in as much little time as possible. Your weakness is being so cover-dependent.

 

Engineering has more survival at the expense of damage, but has a lot of toys and tricks to annoy the heck out of enemies and affect groups with burst damage.

can someone explain to me the different playstyles for these. like which is better for solo vs group, pve vs pvp, etc.

 

Marksman: single target dps, little downtime. Works best at lvl 40+

 

Engineer: good single target dps, not as high as marksman, good AoE and survivability.

Best for leveling until lvl 40 (get all the explsoive probe upgrades, then take the crit talent in lethality and the acuracy/snipe damage talents in marksman).

 

Lethality: Best at lvl 50 or when you get weakning blast and have high crit. Energy intensive (regen depends on critting poison ticks). Very good for PvP since its damage is mostly internal and bypass armor.

 

As such the easiest spec to level with is engineer, marksman need followthrough to become truly powerful (unlocked at around lvl 36-40). and lethality need high crit + cull/weaking blast.

Of the 3 Lethality is most likely the best PvP spec due to its internal damage and mobility.

What lethality talent gives you energy from dot crits?
