how to tech burst with salarian engineer?

I use energy drain then incinerate, but no burst. I can only get it to work if I have a disruptor ammo with me.

Energy Drain will only tech burst on enemies that have shields up. Not sure if that's a glitch or intentional, but it basically can't tech burst if the enemy has no shields.

Sort of wrong.

Energy drain will set up a tech burst on anything, but it only has a 3 second window to be detonated. You have to be pretty close to 200% and relatively close to the enemy to prime with ED and detonate with Incinerate due to its travel time.

Energy Drain can only detonate on enemies that the shield drain effect works on. This means fire explosions from Incinerate -> ED will only happen on synthetics, shields, or barriers.

And this is why salarian engineer sucks.

That sucks. I'm hating decoy as well...I use it, but most tend to just ignore it..

Decoy does work against all geth at least. It'll keep geth prime mesmerized until it runs out or a rocket trooper/bomber kills it.

Default human engineer is a much more versatile class.

Salarian Engineer is better than Human engineer.

Decoy > Combat Drone
Energy Drain > Overload

Against geth? Sure, maybe. Against everything else? Hell no.

Yeah, I love the Salarian Engineer but I can't say he's better than the Human Engineer. He is great against Geth though, as others have stated.
