Voice Pitch 90%

The Gunner is one of the four playable dwarves in the game. He is equipped with a "Lead Storm" Powered Minigun, "Bulldog" Heavy Revolver, Zipline Gun, and Shield Generator.

The Gunner's Zipline gun allows for the team to travel across long distances without touching the ground, and even reverse directions while using it, making it an effective tool for traversing gaps and large caverns with relative ease.

About[edit | edit source]

As the Gunner, your position is at the forefront of any battle, cutting down aliens using your high-calibur Minigun and Heavy-Duty Revolver. You are also equipped with an extremely handy Zipline Launcher, allowing the entire team to easily get across almost any chasm or obstacle.
~ Class Description

As the Gunner, you are the firepower of the team. You are equipped with a heavy Powered Minigun, packing high amounts of damage through its constant spray of bullets, while your secondary "Bulldog" Heavy Revolver allows for high damage shots with decent accuracy at any range. To navigate the depths, you are equipped with a Zipline Gun, launching a steel-reinforced cable across any pit or chasm. Finally, you are equipped with a Shield Generator, which allows the gunner to protect himself and others while laying down his devastating line of fire.

All classes have eight pieces of gear, each of which can be individually upgraded using Credit.png credits and crafting resources.

A peculiar but devastating weapon. The slow rate of fire is made up for by heavy damage, delivered with glee by the belt-fed .50-caliber tungsten rounds.
The Thunderhead is a somber weapon for the sophisticated executioner, delivering death as inexorably as the passage of time itself.

Basic Tips and Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • "Lead Storm" Powered Minigun
    • Be mindful of the Minigun's heat level. You can tell if the minigun is close to overheating by listening to the sounds it makes and a bar seen on the barrel of the gun (it will pop out if the gun overheats)
    • Choose the Blowthrough Rounds modification to get the most out of your ammo, or use the Staggering Rounds modification to keep enemies at bay while your gun cools down.
  • "Thunderhead" Heavy Autocannon
    • The Autocannon uses explosive rounds which will damage you at close range. Pick the Suppressive Fire modification to scare enemies away from you.
  • "Bulldog" Heavy Revolver
    • The Revolver can deal huge amounts of damage to Glyphid Praetorians. Wait for them to use their spray attack before you attempt to flank them.
    • Your Revolver can be used to shoot red sugar on the ceiling, allowing you to collect the chunks for a large health boost.
  • Zipline Gun
    • Use Ziplines for long drops or unreachable caves, but watch out for Mactera Spawn; their spit attacks can knock you off the line!
    • The Gunner is a very useful class on Point Extraction missions, as his ziplines can be used to easily transport Aquarqs back to the minehead.
    • Shoot ziplines around the battlefield to flank enemies with ease.
    • Depending on the angle, if you're hit off of a zipline you can grab back on by pressing E before you begin to fall.
  • Shield Generator
    • Shield generators not only protect you from projectiles and prevent glyphids from entering the space, but they also give everyone inside shield regen.
    • Fall back inside your shield generator if you need to reload your autocannon or wait for your minigun to cool down during large swarms.
    • Shield generators are an invaluable tool during salvage operations, remember to use them if enemies are overwhelming the Uplink/Fuel Cell zones.
