Officers of the garlean empire employ the use of magitek gunblades as a badge of honor and service to the empire. Those who wield these weapons are feared and respected among all ranks and to lose it would be to lose their badge of authority.
The legionnaire is an archetype of the gunbreaker class, available only to garlean gunbreakers.
Badge of Authority (Ex)
At 1st level, the legionnaire begins play with magitek gunblade. It is of normal quality, and is a sign of his loyalty to the empire. If he ever loses this gunblade or has it taken from him by a higher ranking officer, he can no longer gain gunbreaker levels until he earns it back. He cannot simply craft himself a new one. He can however have it recrafted by a trusted smith to have it enhanced. He also gains Gunsmithing as a bonus feat. In addition, all gunbreaker abilities that key off Wisdom now key off Intelligence instead.
This ability replaces gunsmith.
At 3rd level, the legionnaire can infuse his gunblade with energy and swing it further outward to hit opponent with magical cuts. He can treat his magitek gunblade as having reach when desired as long as he has magicked ammo within the gun arm.
This ability replaces jugular rip.
Gun Arm Techniques
The legionnaire gains a couple of gun arm technique in place of another.
Burst Shot* (Su): As a standard action, the legionnaire can charge his reserved magicked ammo into a single shot. He makes a ranged touch attack with his magitek gunblade against a target within his firearm’s range and, if successful, he deals 1d10 points of damage per magicked ammo expended. Magicked Ammo Cost: All available (max of 10).
This technique replaces demon slice gun arm technique.
Magitek Spread* (Su): As a standard action, the legionnaire can swing his magitek gunblade in an arc, blasting away all foes before him, dealing 1d8 points of non-elemental damage per two gunbreaker levels he possesses to all enemies in a 30-ft.-cone. A successful Reflex save (DC 10 + half of the gunbreaker’s level + his Intelligence modifier) reduces this damage by half. Those who fail the save are Staggered for 1 round. Prerequisite: The gunstriker must be at least 12th level to select this technique. Magicked Ammo Cost: 6.
This technique replaces demon slaughter gun arm technique.
