Marksman Ranged are ranged weapons that fire projectiles at a distance, needing to be reloaded after emptying the magazine. During the reload, pressing the reload button at the right time for a Hotspot Reload will boost damage for a time.
Each Marksman subclass now has a unique Perfect Reload Buff:
- Rifles - +35% Rate of Fire for 4 seconds.
- Shotguns - +50% Break Power for 4 seconds.
- Burst Rifles - +50% Crit Power for 5 seconds.
- Runecannons - +50% Weapon Power for 5 seconds.
The duration of each Perfect reload buff now scales according to the number of shots fired from the previous clip.
Example: If only half of a clip is expended before reloading, the Perfect Reload buff's duration will have a 50% reduced duration
Marksman Ranged weapons have a unique Eagle Eye Mechanism: targets spawn once the Eagle Eye meter has reached 100%, All subclasses should now reach 100% Eagle Eye meter after ~15s of continuous fire. Buffs that scale fire rate (including the Rifle Perfect Reload buff) will also increase Eagle Eye buildup rate dealing bonus damage and rewarding 1 Lock and Loaded charge, up to 3 charges. Lock and Loaded charges can be spent on weapon abilities, with the effect varying depending on the weapon.
