Hey dear Gunslinger!

I have read the changes to Gunslinger's Firebuild and I was asking if Fire is still viable after the Nerfs. Seems like alot of damage nerfs and putting a requirement to TAB (with 4).
So my question is if it is still compareable with Shadow,or just trash now. (PvE aspect)

shadow is trash and getting duped deeper into the casket.  

 

PVP nerf to fire gunner now you need to tag targets wiht RMB before you blow them up with RMB.  Which in turn lowers the mount of time youhave to just sit there as a turret.   

 

they lowing the addional dmg % on badge and wpn skill modifiers but inclreasing unlocks best % dmg.  however they do knock on bring unloads base dmg from like 12 to 10.8 or something like that.

 

Equal level gear fire gunners blow shadow out of the water, same will prob still be true after just small er burst instead of getting 1.2 mil -1.5 mil burst open sad 800k-900k substained thorugh fight

This will answer your question:

 

tl;dr: Shadow is still garbage and the nerf changes nothing for fire gunner.

Shadow is garbage and Nodah's video pretty much said it all.  While I'm not max geared like Nodah, my gear for both Shadow and Fire are on equal levels and there is absolutely nothing that justifies me for maining Shadow Gunner over Fire Gunner.  Even in longer winded fights, its still trash and in short fights, why would I even bother spending a additional whatever seconds/minutes to kill something when Fire Gunner would of destroyed ages ago lol?  I kill everything in Outlaw Island for example like no other while Shadow feels like its light years behind lol.

 

The people who are defending shadow gunner like in Nodah's video are delusional lol.  I started out as a Shadow Gunner initially and was glad when I suddenly wanted to change to Fire Gunner and focus on gear for fire before I got too far in gear wise.  Even without the gear for fire back then, it outdid my Shadow Gunner with ease lol.  

 

The nerf still makes Shadow Gunner trash.  The only point in me playing Shadow Gunner personally is when I'm bored as hell and want to look cool since Shadow's animations and effects are cooler.  I guess thats worth the damage loss too lol.  Then again, I like variety so while Shadow Gunner is trash, its worth playing every now and again, but for serious stuff, obviously I wouldn't be on Shadow lol.
