Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Victor Bounty Hunter Guide
Below you will some vital information on the unique passive ability and career skill of the Bounty Hunter class. We have detailed some information along with tips and tricks that will help get the most out of these abilities. We have also listed which weapons you should use for this class, which will help you in making this the best Bounty Hunter build for Victor around.
Starting with the Passive Skill, Victor has Blessed Shots as the Passive Ability for the Bounty Hunter class. It is a great ability as it focuses on ranged critical hits.
With this ability, a ranged critical hit is guaranteed every 8 seconds or when you kill using melee weapons. It also increases the ammunition capacity as well as the reloading speed for all guns that you have equipped. This ability works best with ranged weapons, which we will discuss in some time.
The critical hits are not based on luck with this ability but they are guaranteed which means that every alternate attack might turn into a critical hit. This will cause you to deal great damage to your enemies.
Locked and Loaded
Career Skill for Victor’s Bounty Hunter class is Locked and Loaded. This skill allows Victor to fire a powerful shot that will pierce any enemy in its path.
It also a fast recharge time so you can use it often during battles. This will blow up anything in your way forward as it features a very high damage rating. This works especially well for crowd control when enemies surround you. This will hit enemies even at the end of the onslaught in its path.
Tower Watch Falchion
Coming towards the melee weapons, the weapon that you want to use with this build is the Tower Watch Falchion. It is a good sword with quick attacks.
It has 127 power and each hit will cost you 2 stamina. It also gives a 1.5 stamina boost so it can be used more frequently. The stamina boost is a good option to go for especially with a character that will need to use melee often during battles.
The second melee weapon option for this build is Righteous Hatchet. It is a powerful axe, which features 154 power and costs 3 stamina per hit or swing.
It also comes with some added bonuses. It gives you 7.6% attack speed, which somewhat counters to the slow speed of attacks with the axe. It also give your hero an 18 Critical power allowing you to land more damaging critical attacks.
For this hero, you should avoid using melee as much as possible but in certain situations if you really have to use melee, you need to make sure that it is a powerful one.
Both of these weapons are good choices for this build and it is up to you to choose whichever fits your play style. The sword is good with speed, blocking and range while it also comes with a stamina boost. Something that will help you with blocking as well.
As for the Axe, it is heavier, costs more stamina but it has more power and comes with critical power boost and attack speed increase. You can pick anyone from these for you melee weapons for you build.
For your ranged weapon, you can go for the Nuln repeater. It is a great ranged weapon with good ammo capacity. It can store a lot of ammo, which you hardly run out of even during heavy battles.
It features 151 power, which is strong for a repeater. When compared to other crossbows for Bounty Hunter class, the Nuln Repeater easily stands out as the best ranged weapon for use. Crossbows also come with less ammo capacities so Nuln Repeater takes the win in this category for us.
It also has a spinner attack, which is great for knocking back enemies. If the enemies are too overwhelming and some of them are able to get too close to you, you can use this spinning attack to knock them back and rain some bullets on them quickly with the main attack. This is also something that crossbows lack.
This attack will instantly consume all ammo in your current clip so keep this in mind. Also not just one shot is critical, the whole barrage fired is critical so the damage dealt is great.
The normal attack is also very fast and fires the bullets in quick succession just like a gattling cannon. If you manage to time this barrage with your critical hits, you can get 8 shots of critical instead of just one.
