Meet the TF2 Engineer

He likes a sing-song.

If news of next week's Team Fortress 2 beta has got you excited, you'll want to check out today's Meet the Engineer video to ride that high a bit further.

The Engineer class is a defensive role, primarily, able to erect turrets, ammo/health dispensers and teleports to support his team (and then whack them repeatedly with a wrench to speed up build times).

As with a lot of TF2 classes, however, he's also versatile enough to be useful anywhere on the battlefield. Escorted to an advanced control point by tougher comrades, his teleports and other contraptions can change the course of a battle. Turrets, in particular, cause huge problems for the opposition until they're destroyed.

As with the Meet the Heavy and Meet the Soldier vids, today's offers a humorous introduction to the class. Valve plans to release one video for each of the game's nine classes.
