Celestial Scrapper Roaming Build

GW2. WvW Build. Celestial Scrapper Roaming Build. Scrapper. Engineer World vs World.


Last Update: April 2024


The Celestial Scrapper is a WvW roaming engineer build that has high amounts of hybrid damage from the grenades which can apply conditions as well as power burst damage. This can all be scaled up with the might generation this build gets from boon duration. Although it lacks stun breaks and can be countered by many CCs, it has immense survivability in small scale situations through barrier and health regeneration.

Use your Med Kit Tool Belt F1 often due to its low cooldown to gain Swiftness, Superspeed, and Protection from the Relic of Febe and Inventions/Scrapper traits. Swiftness and Superspeed will heal you, and along with the Regeneration from Mace 2 and Med Kit 5, you can have permanent Regeneration and Swiftness to sustain you.

Otherwise, use your Shield blocks, CC, and Bulwark Gyro to reduce damage dealt to you below that of your passive healing. Any CC you deal grants you barrier, cleanses, and heals you as well due to the Bunker Down and System Shocker trait. The Function Gyro will not only daze enemies to trigger these traits, but also create a lightning field which you can Leap Finisher in with the Mace 2 for a daze combo. Bulwark Gyro is also a lightning field to create this CC combo.

Basic Opener Combo: Function Gyro F5 > Mace 2 > Blast Gyro > Mace 3 > Grenade 2 > 5 > Bulwark Gyro > Mace 2

Using Mace 2 off cooldown is important to upkeeping your vigor so you can constantly dodge and get the explosive entrance damage, barrier, and resistance uptime, but you want to also use a combo field before every Mace 2, even the Med Kit 3 is a water field that you can heal from.

Try to spam as many grenades as possible to apply high amounts of Bleeding with the Shrapnel Explosives trait while using superspeed to keep your distance or to chase your enemy.


Grenade Tips:

Setup your Ground Targeting option as ‚ÄúInstant‚ÄĚ as well as enabling ‚ÄúSkill Retargeting‚ÄĚ and practice aiming with your Grenade Kit while moving for better accuracy. This improves your damage output while under pressure or kiting drastically. If you still have issues to land grenades you can try using the option ‚ÄúSnap Ground Target to Current Target‚ÄĚ and the grenades will go to your target as long you are in range, just make sure to detarget before using any other AoE like if you want to throw an elixir at your location.

  1. tell me is this build still relevant ? Is it possible to run in small groups in it ? Can I use condi runes or it doesn’t make sense. What do you say for the runes of the traveler ?

  2. Hi. Its still viable the celestial scrapper rifle variant in 2023 after feb patch??
    Thanks!!!!!

  3. Why Kinetic Accelerators in this? There are only one or two combos – would Adaptive Armor be better?
