How it works
This setup offers strong DPS coupled with high utility. It’s recommended that you get the Accelerating augment and Mercurial augment to reduce the cooldown of Deadly Aim so you can spam it more often. Whiteout can root enemies in place to prevent damage against the tank temporarily, since you can position yourself behind rooted enemies and they won’t be able to attack.
Killerflow is a 5-metre PBAoE, same range as Blade Torrent, which means you’ll have to get pretty close to enemies to use it, so be careful around mobs like Ghouls and Cultists.
Alternatively, if you need more single target damage, you can switch out Area Drone for Bond, Strong Bond.
If you can hinder enemies, you can spam Conditional Force as the resources are refunded.
The hits from the manifestation can critically hit and penetrate, which will boost your DPS by quite a lot. Make sure to keep placing it shortly after its 10 second cooldown is over.
Cleansing can be very important in nightmare scenarios as Filth exposure deals an extreme amount of damage.
In Elite scenarios you can replace this ability with The Business to get more single target damage, as cleansing isn’t as vital there.
Both Area Drone and Cleansing Drone will give you or the defensive target a heal-over-time effect when deployed. This is the Pistols support skill-line effect. If you’re using a Coney Island Band, you can proc it with this heal effect.
After a while when you’ve started to fill out the Augment Wheel piece by piece, you should make use of them in this build. Below you’ll find a list of which augments you should assign to which abilities.
Killer Flow – Piercing / Fierce
Cleansing Drone – Accurate
Lightning Manifestation – Mercurial
Conditional Force – Focused
Area Drone – Accelerating
Deadly Aim – Inspiring
Whiteout – Rampant
Any of the support augments that provides healing allows you to activate equilibrium for your group members.
