Better Air Compression

Better air compression releases tension in the reload thingy... Whatever, it's just faster.

Added some extra Nuts & Bolts from around town to increase ammo capacity.

Strategies

With

The Mechanic's Air Gun is fully automatic, making it ideal for players who either struggle to lead their shots or are otherwise more comfortable with automatic weapons. The Air Gun has two advantages over the Concrete Launcher, it has a longer range and its shots travel straight forward, allowing you to attack enemies from longer distances without the need to angle your shots, second, it allows you to protect the teleporter from its main threat, drone strikes, by shooting down the drones before they can attack without giving them much chance at dodging your shots, allowing you to deny the plant team from cutting of your team's logistical advantage without actively assaulting the teleporter.

Trivia

  • Its name is Al, as shown by its name tag.
    • This means that it is "Mechanic Al", a pun on the word "mechanical".
    • It is one of the only three Engineers to have an actual name, the others being AC Perry and the Plumber, whose names are Perry and Bob, respectively.
  • It is the only Engineer variant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare that does not deal splash damage. Instead, its primary weapon is automatic.
  • It wears a racing toolbox as a hat, a real mechanic's shirt and the weapon has a racing flag. It is the reason why this variant of Engineer is racing-themed.
  • Its rate of fire was slightly increased in the Legends of the Lawn DLC to compensate for its lack of splash damage.
