What Makes The Gunslinger a Good Class?
The Gunslinger Archetype is all about being a good shooter as we mentioned. It is about precision and DPS with this Archetype. Gunslingers are supposed to deal maximum possible damage with rapid fires and quickly swapping between guns in your loadout for a strategic shootout.
It is a mid-range DPS Class so most of your fights will be intense with little room to evade enemy strikes. Timing will be key as a Gunslinger. Also, you will have to make quick judgments about the fight you are indulged in to see which ranged weapon in your arsenal will deal the heaviest blow quickly.
If you love the thrill of FPS and third-person shooter games and want to stick with the essence of Remnant 2’s survival shooting experience – go with Gunslinger. And to some extent, it might give you a sense of Overwatch 2’s Mccree now known as Cassidy but in Third Person POV.

Is Gunslinger A Good Choice For Solo or Co-op?
Gunslingers are capable of dealing a huge amount of damage with long-range weaponry in their loadout. The best part about the Gunslinger archetype is, perhaps, their Prime Perk ‘Loaded’, which can basically let you fire ammunitions for as long as possible within the Perk’s duration.
Their only disadvantage is that once the Perk is down, you can not easily keep shooting and dealing high DPS and may have to be constantly on defense without any teammates that can provide support or take some Agro away.
The slow reload speed with some weapons can also play into the difficulty during combat engagements such as Gunslinger. Given these points, Gunslinger is ideal for co-op play but can be a fun, exhilarating experience in solo play if you wish to take up the challenge.
What Perks Does Gunslinger Start With?
The Gunslinger starts the game with his Prime Perk automatically unlocked at the beginning, called ‘Loaded’. This Prime Perk is unique to this Archetype alone and can be upgraded at various points upon leveling up the Archetype.
When utilizing this Prime Perk, all your weapons are instantly reloaded and gain infinite ammo for 5 seconds. This Prime Perk is activated every time you use a Skill.
When you first upgrade it after reaching level 5 as Gunslinger, the duration of this Prime Perk increases to 6.5 seconds. After the final upgrade upon reaching Level 10, you will get infinite reserve ammo on every gun in your loadout for 8 seconds.
All the other Perks are unlocked from level 1 onwards and are not automatically accessible at the start.
