    Spoiler: Base Class Abilities

    This One is Mine
    At 1st level, you forge a deadly firearm using a combination of arcane magic and your knowledge of engineering and metallurgy. This initial firearm is called a rifle. It is a weapon that fires leaden bullets that can punch through armor with ease. The firearm is a two-handed ranged weapon that deals 1d10 piercing damage with the loading property. Its normal range is 150 feet, and its maximum range is 400. Any attacks with a firearm within 5 feet are made with disadvantage.

    You are proficient with all firearms, and the ability modifier used for a firearm is Intelligence. Even though it is a ranged weapon, you don’t add your dexterity modifier to attack or damage rolls, unless that modifier is negative. As long as you’re able to see, and are not surprised, you add your Intelligence modifier to damage rolls.

    All firearms produce a loud boom, audible out to 400 ft.

    Gunsmithing
    At 1st level, you craft a leather or silk pouch used to carry your tools and ammunition for firearms. Your tools includes the powders, bullets, and other materials needed to keep that weapon functioning. You can use the tools to produce ammunition for your gun in the form of shells. At the end of each long rest, you can produce 40 rounds of ammunition. After each short rest, you can produce 10 rounds.
    In addition, you gain the ability to cast the Mending cantrip.
    Starting at 6th level, your shots counts as magical for the purposes of overcoming resistances and immunity from non-magical attacks and damage.

    Fighting Style
    At 2nd level, you adopt a particular style of fighting as your specialty. Choose one of the following options. You can’t take a Fighting Style option more than once, even if you later get to choose again.
    • Precise: You gain +1 to attack or accuracy rolls.
    • Mariner: As long as you’re not wearing heavy armor, you gain a climbing and swimming speed equal to your walking speed, and gain +1 AC.
    • Impactful: When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack or accuracy roll, you can reroll the die. You must use the new roll.
    • Penetrating: When you reduce a hostile creature to 0 hit points with a shot, you can reroll your attack or accuracy roll against a different target that is directly behind the original target, and within 30 feet.
    • Depleted: While creating your ammunition with the Gunsmithing feature, you can choose from necrotic, poison, or fire damage. Your damage rolls deal an additional 2 damage of the selected type, for each attack or accuracy die that hits. You can only have one type of ammunition at any time, and when you change the damage type, all of your ammunition updates to that new type.


    Called Shots
    Starting at 2nd level, you learn 2 unique shots. You can use only one shot per attack.
    You learn an additional Called Shots of your choice at 5th, 9th, 13th, and 17th levels. Each time you gain a level in this class, you can also replace one shot you know with a different one
    You start with four superiority dice, which are d8s, and you expend one whenever you use a Called Shot. You regain them all when you finish a long rest. You gain another superiority die at 7th level, and 15th level.
    Some of your maneuvers require a target to make a saving throw. The Saving throw DC is calculated as 8 + your proficiency bonus + your intelligence modifier.

    Marksman Styles
    At 3rd level, you choose a style of weapons and techniques that is unique. You can choose from Elite Sniper, Walking Arsenal, or Gun Kata.

    Ability Score Improvement
    When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th, and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can’t increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

    Increased Accuracy
    Beginning at 5th level, you gain the ability to increase your rifle damage output by firing your single shot more precisely. Whenever you take the Attack action with a two-handed ranged weapon with the loading property on your turn, you can roll 2 Accuracy dice instead. These dice are also d20s, and are rolled independently of each other; if you have advantage or disadvantage on your attack roll, you roll each accuracy die with either advantage or disadvantage. For each of the rolls, plus modifiers, that would equal or exceed the target’s AC, you roll damage, plus modifiers. (For example, if you roll a 15 and a 10 with +2 prof and +2 Int against a target with 14 AC, both would hit, and you’d deal 2d10+4 damage). This increases to 3 Accuracy die at level 11 and, potentially, 4 Accuracy die at level 20.

    If you are using an Extra attack feature gained from anywhere, none of those attacks can use this feature.

    Stand Down
    Starting at 6th level, if you refuse to move as part of your action, you may cast the command spell as an Action. The DC equals the value of your intimidation Skill. You can use this ability successfully up to once per short or long rest.

    Tactical Cover
    Starting at 8th level, if you use your action to Dash, you can Hide as a bonus action.

    Ghillie Suit
    Starting at 10th level, you can spend 1 minute creating camouflage for yourself. You must have access to fresh mud, dirt, plants, soot, gravel and other normally occurring materials with which to create your camouflage.
    Once you are camouflaged in this way, you can try to hide by lying prone against a surface, such as within a tree, or atop a wall or hill, that is at least as wide as you are tall. You gain a +10 bonus to Dexterity (Stealth) checks as long as you remain there without moving. Once you move or take an action or a reaction, you must use a hide action again to gain this benefit.

    Silencer
    Starting at 14th level, you can craft a silencer for one of your firearms over the course of a long rest. You can use an action to don or doff the silencer from your weapon.
    While your firearm has a silencer on, the normal and maximum ranges are reduced by half, but if you make an attack while hidden, you don't give away your location to targets further away.

    In addition, if your firearm has a Silencer attached, the range of the audible boom created by your attacks is reduced to 200 ft.

    Steady Hands
    At 18th level, you become an unparalleled hunter of your enemies. Once on each of your turns, you can add your Dexterity modifier to the accuracy or damage roll of an attack you make. You can choose to use this feature before or after the roll, but before any effects of the roll are applied


    At 20th level, shots from your firearms ignore resistance to piercing damage.
    You can also choose one of the following options:
    Increased Accuracy (x4)
    • Increase the number of your accuracy die to 4; or,
      Vorpal Headshot
    • When you attack a creature that has at least one head with this weapon and roll a 20 on the attack roll, you blow off one of the creature’s heads. The creature dies if it can’t survive without the lost head. A creature is immune to this effect if it is immune to magical piercing damage, doesn’t have or need a head, has legendary actions, or the GM decides that the creature is too big for its head to be blown off with this weapon. Such a creature instead takes an extra 6d8 piercing damage from the hit.



    Elite Sniper

    Defensive Tactics

    • Steel Will - You have advantage on saving throws against being Frightened & Charmed.

Whenever you gain a called shot, you can also choose an additional option from the Unusual Arsenal List.

    In addition, you gain proficiency in using the butt of your rifle as an improvised melee weapon. It deals 1d4 + Strength damage.

    Lucky Shot

    Show

    Gun Fu

These firearms are considered one-handed, light weapons that do not have the loading property and have a range of 30/90. These pistols deal 1d6 piercing damage. Instead, a pistol can make six shots each before needing to be "reloaded" with a new magazine as a bonus action. You can also reload two weapons over the course of one action.

    Your Gunsmithing feature allows you to create magazines to easily load the pistols. At the end of each long rest, you can produce 12 magazines of 6-bullet ammunition, instead of normal ammunition. After each short rest, you can produce 4 magazines. Magazines cannot be used for rifles, nor can rifleshot be used for your pistols.

    Quantity over Quality
    Starting at level 5, while wielding only one-handed weapons, you gain an Extra attack feature, allowing you to attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn, instead of using the Increased Accuracy feature. The number of attacks increases to three when you reach 11th level in this class and to four when you reach 20th level in this class.

    • When you hit a creature with a thrown weapon, you gain advantage on your next firearm attack on that creature.
    • You gain proficiency 2 martial one-handed melee weapons of your choice

    Dodge This
    At level 11, your ranged attack rolls do not have disadvantage due to being within 5 feet of a hostile creature, nor do you have disadvantage when attacking a creature that had taken the Dodge Action.

    Death Blossom
    Starting at level 15, if you are wielding a pistol in each hand, You can use your action to make a firearm attacks against any number of creatures within 15 feet of you, with a separate attack roll for each target. This attack ends early if both pistols need to be reloaded.
