Looking for the best Lost Ark Sharpshooter builds? Here are all of the skills you’ll need to dominate PvE and PvP battles as the lethal Gunner.

When it comes to DPS classes in Lost Ark, it’s safe to say players are spoiled for choice with each of the specializations offering completely different playstyles.

However, for those who prefer to pump out damage from afar using a mechanical bow rather than a gun, there’s no better option than the deadly Sharpshooter.

Equipped with special arrows that each have a variety of custom effects, a Sharpshooter is capable of wiping out enemies in an instant with their pinpoint aim.

Of course, in order to get the most out of the Sharpshooter, you’ll need to be familiar with the best PVE and PVP builds, and luckily, we’ve got you covered.


Sharpshooter, Artillerist, Deadeye, or Gunslinger

While the Sharpshooter, Artillerist, Deadeye, and Gunslinger all fall under the banner of the Gunner class, they each offer different playstyles that you need to be familiar with.

For starters, the Gunslinger and Deadeye classes are masters of guns with a weapon for every occasion. Capable of wielding double handguns, a shotgun, and a rifle, these classes are perfect for anyone who loves to switch weapons on the fly and dish out damage while dodging any lethal attacks that come their way.

By far the tankiest of the Gunner classes, the Artillerist is not lacking in firepower and has some of the most deadly AoE abilities in the game. Despite lacking mobility, they make up for it in raw damage, but the wind-up time of certain attacks makes timing absolutely essential on the Artillerist.

Finally, the Sharpshooter is for those who prefer to wield a bow rather than a gun, cycling through a variety of custom arrows to exploit their enemy’s weaknesses. Not only that, the survivability of the class allows them to stay in the fight for the long haul, making them a consistent damage dealer no matter what an encounter brings.
