The Engineer is one of the five playable characters in the multiplayer game modes of Half-Life 2: Survivor.
In Battle Mode, the Engineer, along with the Sniper, has the lowest carry capacity of reserve ammunition for the standard automatic weapons (the SMG and the Pulse Rifle), and the only other available ranged weapons are the 9mm Pistol and the Double-barreled Shotgun, making the Engineer's combat capabilities limited to close and medium distances and also restricted by the low amount of ammunition.
Instead of battling the enemies directly, the Engineer uses traps and a wide selection of other special items to support the team. The engineer also has access to the Special Magazine, which is extremely useful as it provides the only source of ammunition for many of the Survivor's weapons, and is the only character who can use the Gravity Gun, which also comes useful in several ways.
The Engineer can also be used in the Mission Mode, but does not have any unique weapons or stats, as the mission mode's characters serve only cosmetic purpose.

Behind the scenes
Models of the Combine Engineers are based on the Overwatch Soldier, with the texture being based on an early pre-release variant rather than retail, as evidenced by the yellow armpits. The Resistance Engineer models appear to be inspired by the Hazardous Environment Suit, but not based directly on it.
