"Post-apocalyptic soldier with a flair for firearms" ― Gunslinger class description
The Gunslinger is a class that puts a lot of significance on combat using any and all firearms at their disposal.
Many of the Gunslinger's perks focus on guns and gunplay. There are also an above average selection of perks to grant the Gunslinger better starting weapons for both the primary and secondary slots. However, this leaves very few perks that can be active to strengthen the character themselves. Choosing the Gunslinger largely requires you to commit to whatever rifle, handgun, or piece you currently have equipped and use it to its fullest potential to kill zekes efficiently and effectively. Easy to learn but difficult to master, you will become less dependent on defense systems and other teammates' class tools to get the job done and rely more on your own steady aim and awareness to become a zeke-killing machine at a moment's notice.
The Gunslinger's starting core perk grants two passive buffs. The first keeps weapon accuracy steady while its wielder is moving, keeping it close to handling as if you were firing it while standing still. The second partially reduces the recoil effect of the gun, making continuous fire more manageable. These buffs help improve the Gunslinger's aim when firing to make more bullets land on their targets.
The equipment of choice for the Gunslinger is the Frag Grenade. This explosive tool is meant to thin out a crowd of zombies quickly, giving the Gunslinger a decently powerful crowd control option for when the situation may deem it necessary or when their gun is just not enough.
