The Gadgeteer is a class in South Park: The Fractured But Whole. It uses a 'shockingly explosive toy collection, courtesy of the SkyMaul catalog'.

Toolshed and Call Girl are classified as Gadgeteers in-game.

Tactics

The Gadgeteer's abilities are rather quirky compared to some of the more straightforward attacks from the other classes. Both the Boom-Boom Buddy and the Straight Shooter provide targets for the enemy to target rather than the player itself. This is intentional for the Boom-Boom Buddy, who explodes when attacked. As such, the true strength of the Gadgeeter is that, in addition to doing damage, it denies the enemy a turn for damage since they are attacking a useless duplicate.

The turret does a fair amount of damage and hits in a column, so it is very useful when paired with a tough hero to stand in front of it, like Captain Diabetes or Super Craig

The Gigavolt Globe will shock a wide variety of targets, and the Ultimate is a straightforward damaging attack and can hit many opponents. In all, the Gadgeeter is best placed at range.
