GW2. Raid Build. Power Hammer Quickness Scrapper. Engineer PvE 2023.
Last Update: Jan 2023
The Hammer Quickness Scrapper is a DPS engineer build with high self sustain by converting damage dealt into self barrier that allows it to be a tank while providing superspeed and quickness to the group, making it great for encounters with a lot of movement.
Role: DPS Tank
- Use all Gyros and the Blast Gyro’s Tool Belt Skill for Quickness
- Hammer 5
- Shredder Gyro Tool Belt Skill
- Hammer 2
- Grenade 2/4/5 (if using Grenades)
- Hammer 1 if Melee
- Mortar/Grenade 1 if Ranged
The Defense Field Tool Belt Skill can give projectile block and stability to your party, and Function Gyro F5 can be saved to use as a revive or cast to give extra quickness/damage.

As an engineer enjoyer, I actually recommend playing this build with rifle instead. Couple of reasons: 1) Ranged gameplay makes it easier to position yourself well in fights and makes it easier to have high dps uptime. 2) Overcharged Shot, provides 232 deviance bar break over only 100 from thunderclap. 3) Rifle Burst Grenade ensures a constant stream of explosions on auto-attack which is great for explosives tradeline synergy. 4) Jump Shot profides excelent mobility in tricky situations 5) Using rifle makes aim-assistant rocket viable which yields better dps over explosive temper.
There is no Quickness provided to either yourself or your teammates. Do you actually mean “superspeed”?
It does give quickness in PvE
