The Gunner is one of the four Dwarves in the game. He is also the Dwarf you begin with in the Tutorial.
He is equipped with the "Lead Storm" Powered Minigun, the "Thunderhead" Heavy Autocannon, and the "Hurricane" Guided Rocket System as his primaries, and the "Bulldog" Heavy Revolver, the BRT7 Burst Fire Gun, and the ArmsKore Coil Gun as his secondaries. He has the Zipline Launcher, the Shield Generator, and the "Barracuda" Armor Rig as his equipment, and Sticky Grenade, the Incendiary Grenade, and the Cluster Grenade as his throwables.


As the Gunner, your position is at the forefront of any battle, cutting down aliens using your high-caliber 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 equipped with a heavy Powered Minigun, Autocannon, or Missile Launcher packing high amounts of damage, while your secondary "Bulldog" Heavy Revolver or BRT7 Burst Fire Gun allows for high damage shots. 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.

The Gunner can choose from three different kinds of grenade: the Sticky Grenade which is able to stick to surfaces and enemies, the Incendiary Grenade which creates a fiery explosion and the Cluster Grenade which upon explosion launches several mini-grenades which instantly explode on contact.


All classes have twelve pieces of gear, each of which can be individually upgraded using Credit.png Credits and crafting resources. There are currently four unlockable weapons per class. Each weapon has their own assignment. Once an assignment for a weapon has been completed it then can be purchased within the upgrade terminal.
