These warriors specialize in using gun arms in melee utilizing the trigger attack function of the gun arm. They rip and tear through the battlefield with an explosive relentless force.
The gunstriker is an archetype of the gunbreaker class.
Limit Break (Su)
At 1st level, the gunstriker receives the Limit Break (Renzokuken).
Renzokuken (Su): This Limit Break allows the gunstriker’s melee attacks to become all trigger attacks without penalty and all ammo in the gun arm becomes magicked ammo. Furthermore, the cost of magicked ammo for gun arm techniques is reduced to 0 for the duration of the limit break and costs no normal ammo to use. This limit break lasts for a duration of 1 round + 1 round per four gunbreaker levels after 1st. This limit break requires only a swift action.
This ability replaces the Limit Break (No Mercy).
The gunstriker must choose either a standard gunblade, a gunhammer, or a guntana for his starting gun arm.
This ability modifies gunsmith.
The gunstriker gains a number of gunbreaker talents in place of others.
Burst Strike (Ex): The gunstriker can expend two bullets at the same time when performing a trigger attack to deal double damage. If the trigger ability is activated, only one bullet’s damage is increases by 50%. This ability does not trigger when the trigger ability is activated during a non-trigger attack. This ability may be used a number of times per day equal to the gunstriker’s Wisdom modifier.
This talent replaces close combat shot gunbreaker talent.
Relentless Revolver (Ex): As a free action, the gunstriker can lower his critical multiplier on his gun arm to 1 to gain a +4 critical threat range for 1 round. This is applied after all other critical threat range increases.
This ability replaces ranged combat training gunbreaker talent.
At 3rd level, when the gunstriker confirms a critical hit with a gun arm that has a trigger attack, he deals additional damage as if he had performed a trigger attack with his gun arm and consumes a bullet as normal. If he had declared the attack already as a trigger attack, the trigger attack deals 50% more damage instead.
This ability replaces jugular rip.
Advanced Gunbreaker Talent
The gunstriker gains an advanced gunbreaker talent in place of another.
Revolver Drive (Ex): When the gunstriker deals trigger attack damage, he ignores elemental resistance up to twice his Wisdom modifier.
This talent replaces improved ranged combat training gunbreaker talent.
