Gunner is a returning class in Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis.
A class geared towards close range combat, that excels at wielding ranged weapons point-blank. They make light work of enemies with their great mobility and relentless torrent of bullets.

Class Weapon Overview

Gunners has access to two unique weapons: Twin Machineguns (NGS) Twin Machine Guns and Rifle (NGS) Rifles

Twin Machine Guns

Extremely versatile ranged weapons that serves as the primary weapon of Gunners. They deal relatively small amounts of damage. However, they make up for it with the number of hits that they can deal in a given amount of time. While TMGs are considered as a Ranged weapon, their hit range is of Medium to Point-Blank range.

Using the Stylish Roll Weapon Action allows you to reposition yourself in midair, evade attacks, and shoot at the same time. Unlike PSO2, you can now roll forward without the use of a skill ring, and the slow motion third roll is now gone.

Rifles

A heavy-duty rifle loaded with bullets. Possesses a high rate of attack as well as extreme precision. Rifles has a unique property of dealing increased damage for attacking at medium range.

The Sliding Shot Weapon Action performs an evasive slide forward, backwards, or to the sides while shooting at the same time. This allows the Ranger to keep their distance from an enemy to avoid damage as well as shoot at the same time.

This weapon is less used over Twin Machine Guns and more regarded as a side weapon at times.
