Enhanced Weapon Deadeye Build Guide for PvE

Build

required skill points: 348

The Enhanced WeaponEnhanced Weapon build utilises all 3 weapons, though you will spend the majority of your time in 2 - the handguns and the shotguns. You will usually be extremely close to the boss' back due to this build being focused heavily on back attacks.

How to play

All of your damaging skills are back attacks, except your rifle skills, this means that you will need to constantly position yourself behind the boss to deal damage.

Before an encounter starts, you can build AdrenalineAdrenaline stacks by using skills such as Triple ExplosionTriple Explosion (if you're stationary), and/or Dexterous ShotDexterous Shot, Enforce ExecutionEnforce Execution and Somersault ShotSomersault Shot to move to the target whilst building stacks.


Part 1 - Set up damage with synergy

  • Make sure to maintain your synergy, every time you use one of your damaging skill the synergy should be active; Spiral TrackerSpiral Tracker, AT02 GrenadeAT02 Grenade or EquilibriumEquilibrium.

Part 2 - Deal damage whilst synergy is active

If synergy is not active, you should change stance and proc it.

  • Clay BombardmentClay Bombardment is your ultimate skill, you can use this for damage. Since this skill can be quite slow and is melee range, make sure the boss isn't going to jump away from it before casting.

Shotgun

  • It is recommended to use Sign of ApocalypseSign of Apocalypse or Last RequestLast Request if you need to use faster shotgun skills. This may be, for example, because the boss' current action is fast and you want to use that opportunity to do back attack damage.
  • Otherwise, if you are positive that you can land the slower skills, for example, if the boss is performing a longer action; Shotgun DominatorShotgun Dominator or Shotgun Rapid FireShotgun Rapid Fire will provide great damage.
  • It is crucial to know what shotgun skill you can use and when because it will allow you to ensure that you are back attacking and getting the highest damage output possible.

Handgun

  • For handgun skills; Quick ShotQuick Shot or Cruel TrackerCruel Tracker are your damaging skills.
  • These skills are also back attacks.

Downtime/Ranged (rifle)

  • If all your shotgun skills and damaging handgun skills are on cooldown, or you cannot be in close range of the boss, feel free to fill in the time gaps by using Perfect ShotPerfect Shot and Spiral FlameSpiral Flame.
  • While in this stance, you have access to a push immunity CatastropheCatastrophe, this skill also has weak point level 1 and mid stagger.


In essence, keep AdrenalineAdrenaline stacked using mainly movement skills, use your damaging handgun and shotgun skills while synergy is active to maximise your damage output. If everything else is on cooldown, or you can't get close, fill the rest in with rifle skills. Repeat.

Use Somersault ShotSomersault Shot, Dexterous ShotDexterous Shot and Enforce ExecutionEnforce Execution if you need mobility. These skills can also be used to maintain AdrenalineAdrenaline stacks. Note that Enforce ExecutionEnforce Execution is also one of your counters.

In summary, for utility, you can use:

  • Enforce ExecutionEnforce Execution or Last RequestLast Request as your counter. Remember that using Last RequestLast Request as a counter means that you won't be getting back attack bonus for it in this case.
  • Shotgun Rapid FireShotgun Rapid Fire, Last RequestLast Request, Quick ShotQuick Shot, Cruel TrackerCruel Tracker, Perfect ShotPerfect Shot or CatastropheCatastrophe for destruction
  • Any shotgun skill (they are all mid/high stagger except Sign of ApocalypseSign of Apocalypse which is low stagger), Cruel TrackerCruel Tracker ,CatastropheCatastrophe or Spiral FlameSpiral Flame for stagger.
