In order to master the Artillerist in Lost Ark, you’ll need to know which builds are best for both PvP and PvE. Here’s a rundown of what skills you’ll need to dominate Arkesia as the fearsome Gunner.

One of the MMORPG universe’s most obscure classes is the mysterious Gunner, also known as Engineer or Machinist in the likes of Guild Wars 2 and Final Fantasy XIV Online.

Masters of all things technological, Lost Ark‘s Gunner class includes the tanky Artillerist, whose arsenal of heavy weapons is perfect for cutting through the hordes in style.

Wondering what the best builds are for the Artillerist in Lost Ark? Here are all of the skills you’ll need to tear hell’s finest asunder as this fearsome, gun-touting warrior.

Lost Ark’s Artillerist certainly packs quite the wallop.

Artillerist, Deadeye, Gunslinger, or Sharpshooter?

The fundamental difference between the Artillerist and their comrades is pretty simple: the Artillerist wields heavy weapons, while the others use comparatively light ones.

In turn, this makes their attacks much slower, but much more effective. Perfect for those who prefer to decimate the competition from afar whilst making use of their tanky stats to survive during extended fights, the Artillerist is the one for you.

If you’re looking for a more mobile Gunner, however, we suggest any of the other three characters, with the Sharpshooter being our recommended pick as they only wield their mechanical bow. The Gunslinger and Deadeye can cycle through multiple weapons, in turn making them a little tricker to master.
