- Highest damage but short range skills.
- High damage and long range but long animations.
You can equip 8 handgun skills but shotgun and rifle can only equip 4 skills each. This means Gunslinger has a total of 16 skills that they need to keep track of.

Gunslinger uses their handgun skills to debuff the enemy then swap to their shotgun or rifle to cast a few skills and then repeat the process. Timing and position are critical to Gunslingers because their damage skills lock them in place for a decent amount of time.
Gunslingers are fragile in PVP but have a ton of mobility, super armor, and great damaging combos. It’s a very punishing class to start learning but is incredibly rewarding once you put in the work.
You’ll use your engage tools aggressively to catch people with stagger before you combo into your hard disables or use your long range skills to catch enemies and assist teammates.
You need to be most careful as a Gunslinger when you don’t have your roll. You die quickly so without an escape you’re very vulnerable.
Slide 6 meters forward and fire the weapon to inflict 155 Damage.
