This article will talk about what it means to be a sharpshooter and how well they perform in combat, the best tripods to focus on, and the playstyle available to them. If you are searching for a ranged DPS class that deals tremendous damage from afar, then this is the guide for you.
The lost ark sharpshooters use bows and arrows to shoot enemies from a distance, which protects them from incoming attacks. This is also an excellent class to pick for beginners due to how simple their skill rotations are.
Sharpshooters deal both burst and sustained damage quite effectively. They also have excellent mobility as gunners, which allows them to slide from one place to another for good mobility.
The unique ability of the sharpshooter is The hawk identity to summon a silver hawk and deal massive damage. When the silver hawk is active, you gain access to two skills: wings of the storm and last rush.
The best skills and tripods
By the time your sharpshooter reaches level 50, you will have unlocked a total of 20 skills comprised of normal and awakening skills. Tripod skill allows the player to customize kills in various ways by improving damage or reducing the cooldown of abilities.
Sharpshooter skills and tripods:
Shoots 3 arrows in quick succession to deal increasing damage to the enemy.
Amplified damage tripod:
Temporarily enhances the damage you and your allies do.
Some other upgrades you can consider are double shot and final strike to boost your AOE and Crit rate.
This shoots a barrage of arrows which will then land into multiple enemies, which will deal considerable damage over time. Arrow shower is a good initiator against slow-moving targets since it takes a few seconds for the arrows to crash into the ground.
To maximize the damage and increase your attack speed and Crit rate are Swift fingers, sustained enhancement, and piercing arrow.
This excellent ability lets your sharpshooter engage with enemies in melee range; it is a back attack, which means you can catch your enemies by surprise. If you’re looking for excellent mobility, you should also pick up the silver master to get more hawk energy and strengthening to enhance your damage and deal damage by inflicting bleed blade storm.
This lets you deal explosive damage while evading enemies already moving towards you. It would help if you equipped storm surge for the cooldown period to get the most out of this.
Weapon destruction and mounting flames:
This gives the enemies a temporary buffer by reducing the damage they deal.
This high damage skill requires you to charge your arrows before shooting enemies. To get the most out of this, it is best to take it with fast fire, which will also boost your damage by half.
This ability decreases the cooldown rate after you use an ability.
This boosts damage further by letting you shoot two arrows at once.
Final point hit:
The last tripod you should take is the final point hit to boost your crit rate.
Unlocked at combat level 50, this allows you to deal the most tremendous damage possible and comes in useful, especially against strong monsters and especially when you hit them in the weak point.
