best gun class?

What's the best class using guns. pistol or rifle.

I've found that I enjoy using the guns in the game and engineer seems as if it neds the kits more then anything losing the actual weapons. I enjoy the kiting and the style of it soo any advice?

    Well there's 4 classes that use guns:
    -Thief: pistol main hand/off hand, DE: gives access to rifle.

    • Messmer: pistol off hand.
    • Engineer: Pistol main hand/off hand, Rifle
    • Warrior: Rifle
      I think that's all although I might have missed some.

    I'm not sure if your looking for a meta build but I know some people enjoy the Warrior gunflame build using rifle. (Not that its meta, check for these classes their might be one to your liking)

    However, if you only want to use guns, a Deadeye thief can use a rifle and pistols.
    Or Engineer of course the pistol shield can be fun, same as pistol/pistol. You can make a holosmith that uses p/p and 1 or not kits. Or an elixir based build idk its been a while since I've played Engineer, but I'm sure you can make a functional build that uses rifle or pistol/shield, p/p. I'm sure the Eng forums can give you some build advice that runs with minimum kits depending on the content you want to run.

    I'd suggest making one of each that can use pistol and rifle, take them to the pvp lobby and try some builds and guns out see how you feel about the playstyle.

  • go for thief. pp and rifle thief is all in the kiting
