Strategies

This character is similar to the Fire Pea, due to having splash damage and a fire effect. What sets the Welder apart is the abilities. The Sonic Grenade is amazing to use with this character, as it can set groups of plants up to take a lot of damage, as well as suffer form the fire effects. Use to Jackhammer to rush to ranges where you are comfortable shooting from. If you can keep on the pressure, the Welder can be one of the most dangerous Engineer variants in the game due to his sheer damage output.
