Gunners are skilled marksmen in the field of gunpowder and cannoneering. These Pistoliers are strange marauders which are a rare sight to see on the battlefield.
Gunners are well trained in the art of firearms, from the basic single handed flintlock, to the devastating Mini Cannon.
A Gunner's pistol is his/her very ally, so a Gunner must take his/her time to fine tune their weapons to ensure that they can keep firing throughout the battle. Gunners usually carry more than one pistol because of this.
Should the Gunner run out of ammunition, he/she will always have a dagger or short sword by their side, or even a bayonet on the end of their pistols for maximum efficiency. In some cases, Gunblades have been known to exist for this exact purpose.
A Gunner must reload every once in a while as well, taking 1 combat round (more depending on the gun) per gun.
