Engineering Kit is a skill type unique to Engineers that replaces the currently equipped weapon (and its skills) with a special weapon. Engineering kits can be equipped and stowed instantly, allowing characters to switch back to their original weapon. Kits scale damage based on the rarity of the player's equipped weapon.
