Does anyone even use this perk? I think they should make it less costly points wise. Scavenger easily replaces that skill. I can only see myself using gunslinger in Survivors, but only if I played that
it is useful in the awful gamemode(i.e. survivors) but it does seem to lose it's usefulness even in pistol only loadouts. I kinda see it inversly useful compared to scavenger.
gunslinger is good within the first few minutes of the match, while scavenger isn't until you get a couple kills. Although after getting a few kills, you start to have ample amounts of ammo not only for your pistol, but long gun as well thanks to scavenger.
Gunslinger may be useful for the shorty, since it basically lets you go beyond it's ammo cap of 8, and is also useful for the 9mm as well. Not sure how useful for the revolver or enforcer though.
I think I found a decent interrogation loadout that utilises gunslinger ok for me though.
something I kinda wish it did though, is still pseudo-stack with pistol upgrades. For example the 9mm, getting double ammo for it starts you off at 20. The upgrades for the 9mm, give you 13 and 15 bullets respectfully without gunslinger at all. Although with gunslinger, I'm still gettting 20 bullets, i.e. only 1 extra kill per respawn. I'm not saying double the 15 bullets to 30, but at least gimme the extra 3-5 bullets per upgrade as well, so that I spawn with 23 and 25 bullets each time.
Since by the looks of it, if I choose to upgrade my 9mm, I'm literally just getting 5 extra bullets from gunslinger level 3 by this point, instead of 10. By my math that's only 50% more, not double the amount.
Like Sanddude said, it gets progressively more useless, so probably build two loadouts, one with Gunslinger 3, and the other with Scavenger 2. When you upgrade your pistol, switch over to the Scavenger 2 loadout.
That's really the only way I could see it being utilized efficiently, if someone really wanted to.
"I know! It's all my fault! But I don't know how to fix it! Where do you start? What do you say? All I can do is go forward. Keep fighting and surviving, until I find the answers I need."
BTW sanddude: I thought the same, it would be good for the shorty but it isnt. You spawn with 14 bullets but guess what? Lets say i kill a guy with two shots, so i have 12 left. theres 2 shorty shots on the ground because I killed the guy obviously. I CANNOT pick up that ammo because im pass the 8 ammo cap on the shorty. So if i ever want to pick up ammo, i have to have less than 8 bullets, which makes gunslinger+shorty absolutely terrible
I've only found one fun build for Gunslinger;
But it depends, if you plan on fully upgrading it, do you think having 5 extra bullets is worth 4 full loadout points?
I think having gunslinger and scavenger together in a loadout is a waste. Unless you're blindly shooting a wall, scavenger will more than often keep your ammo count well near the max amount leaving gunslinger virtually worthless by mid-game. At least from how I use my scavenger loadout, those 4 LP are better suited to go somewhere else rather than gunslinger.
