2 Blaster Pistols
- "Master of the trick shot, the first to dive for cover and able to take advantage of every opportunity, the Gunslinger and his dual blasters are the perfect team. There’s a right target for ending every disagreement, and the Gunslinger knows enemy vulnerabilities like the inside of his ship. All Gunslingers learn how to fire two blasters at once, specializing in long-range combat and methods to keep enemies at a distance. Gunslingers can also opt to learn the skills of the Saboteur, using grenades and demolitions technology that cause fire damage and ignore enemy armor; the Sharpshooter, shooting from cover and focusing on precise, high-damage attacks; and Dirty Fighting, crippling and bleeding opponents using underhanded tactics."
- ―In-game Codex (Game Rules)
- Dual Pistols
- Quickdraw / Fast Attacks
- Ranged DPS
Another specific upgrade is that the Sweeping Gunfire can be used while the player moves the cone of fire, although this requires a certain amount of care.
Teaches the Gunslinger to use explosive and advanced tech to sustain a much longer assault.
The Gunslinger focuses on precise, high damage attacks from the safety of cover.
These tactics leave no trick off-the-table and often leave an enemy crippled or bleeding.
