Deep Rock Galactic: Survivors – Best Classes For Solo Players

No friends to play with? Don’t worry, because we’ll be talking about Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor’s best classes for solo players


Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor is a top-down roguelike shooter spin-off of Deep Rock Galactic, except this time it’s developed by a different group of people called ‘Funday Games’ (the original was developed by Ghost Ship Games). It follows the same gameplay mechanics as the original version, with a few twists here and there that will keep the game fresh and attract new players.

The big question that people might be asking is if Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor is enjoyable even if you don’t have people to play with, and the answer is definitely yes. At its core, this roguelike shooter is extremely fun to play in itself and quite cathartic as the gameplay revolves around your dwarven characters taking down hordes after hordes of enemies.

This is why we’ll be discussing what class will be the easiest for you to pick and which one you’ll enjoy even if you’re playing by yourself. Games should be enjoyed both with friends and by yourselves, and Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor allows both possibilities to co-exist.

All Classes in Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor

There’s going to be 4 classes available in the early access version of Deep Rock Galactic: Survivors, which is the same as the final version of the game, as mentioned by the devs. Each class has their own individual powers and roles, and we’ll be going through all of them to help you pick which class is best for your solo experience.

The Engineer

When it comes to self-reliance, the Engineer class does it especially well. With a varying repertoire of abilities and perks, he’s gonna make your time in the tunnels a LOT easier thanks to his combat shotgun and hard-hitting grenade launcher. Those two in itself are enough to deal lethal damage to most enemies but they aren’t the only things the Engineer has up his sleeve.

His signature perk is his sentry turret, which you can set up and keep stationed inside a tunnel and it’ll help you clear out the groups of enemies with ease. He also has plenty of other long range equipment that’ll do passive damage to the enemies without you doing any of the work. That’s why he’s extremely viable in a team and in solo runs as well.

The Gunner

If long range damage and peskily poking enemies through other equipment isn’t part of your personality, then the gunner class might be more up your alley. In the original game, he was the starting class of the game and the one that the tutorial starts you with. That basically means he’s an all-rounder class and is THE beginner-friendly option to pick amongst the four.

He’ll be equipped with heavy machinery like a minigun and also have a pistol with him, turning every enemy in their path into squished bug desert. If you want a class to learn the basics of the game with and also have plenty of fun at the same time, this is definitely the class to pick.

The Driller

The driller won’t stop at anything, let it be bugs, monsters, or fearsome creatures, and why let him? It’s insanely fun. With a drill equipped (shocking), you’ll plow through everyone in Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor without a second thought. The only caveat being that they might overheat if used for long periods of time.

In the original game, he also wielded a flamethrower, and was capable of throwing axes, but whether that’s true in the new version is yet to be known. Either way, his prowess should be unchanged in both games, so you’re guaranteed to have fun shredding through things with the driller.

The Scout

Last but not least, we have the Scout. He comes equipped with an assault rifle and will have 10% more max speed along with +20 max hp. Not only that, his equipment is pretty versatile in general, and his main trait is the mobility that comes with him. That means you’ll be dodging and weaving through enemies while dealing plenty of damage to everyone around you at the same time.

All in all, he’s quite a safe choice for every player in Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor, and he’s just as fun to play with as every other class in the game.

So that concludes all the classes of the game, but which one should you pick? At the end of the day, it’s entirely up to you and what your playstyle is, but you’ll be able to enjoy Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor with just about any of the 4 classes available to you. Every single class has their own perks and abilities and have the complete potential to be enjoyed on a solo run. Not only that, they’re just as viable in an actual team.

If you’re into brute forcing through things, then the Driller and Gunner classes might be suitable for you, since it’s a much more aggressive playstyle.

If, on the other hand, you like dealing long range damage and more of a strategic approach, then pick Engineer or Scout. 

You’re free to play the game and keep exploring everything that the different classes have to offer, and eventually, you’ll definitely be able to find a class that’s the best fit for you. The bottom line is that Deep Rock Galactic: Survivors is a game that can be perfectly enjoyed solo and you’ll be able to enjoy the game with all the classes that are playable in the game.
