[Beta register] Obsidian Entertainment has revealed the Gunner class in Skyforge in an explosive new trailer. The Gunner is one of the most heavily armed classes in the game with a powerful gun that can transform into a massive missile launcher, destructive flamethrower and other firing modes. These different firing modes make the the Gunner a dangerous foe in a variety of tactical situations.
Their long distance attacks are made possible due to the three firing modes available on their cannon. Generally, the Gunner opens the fight with the mini-gun, decimating enemies in a withering hail of bullets. While in the mini-gun mode the cannon is prone to over-heating, but that doesn’t stop the gunner. When the mini-gun overheats this resourceful weapons master can quickly switch the weapon to its secondary firing mode, the plasma rifle!
In the missile launcher mode, the Gunner’s cannon has the longest range of all the ranged classes found in Skyforge! However, it’s important to note that while in this mode the Gunner is unable to move, forcing the player to pay careful attention to their surroundings for fear of being caught out in the open. The missile launcher requires a special resource, projectiles, which are a limited resource that’s slowly restored over time.
As a ranged DPS class, the Gunner’s primary role is to engage and eliminate enemy targets as quickly as possible. While their allies are fighting on the frontlines, drawing the enemies’ attention to themselves, the Gunner can select targets and focus on inflicting massive amounts of damage from afar. In order to inflict the maximum amount of damage, players will want to stay well behind the “tanks” and hit the farthest targets using the missile launcher firing mode!
