Time To Hunt: Skill Descriptions, Tripods, Gems and Runes


Skill Descriptions

Time to Hunt Icon Time to Hunt can only use Pistol & Rifle skills. This gives you more room to spend skill points not only on your primary DPS abilities, but also filler skills. Majority of your DPS comes from your Rifle skills with your pistol skills rounding out the remaining two or three.


Synergy and Movement Skills


Damage Skills

  • Focused Shot Icon Focused Shot is your highest damage contributor with an animation lock only cancelable via Spacebar. Majority of its damage is backloaded into the final two shots.
  • Target Down Icon Target Down is the second highest DPS skill and can be cancelled either by moving or switching weapons.
  • Catastrophe Icon Catastrophe brings the highest stagger in our kit and has optional push immunity with Tenacity Icon Tenacity.
  • Perfect Shot Icon Perfect Shot has long range and spikes in damage once your target is under 50%.


Prioritize Rifle skills' tripods first to secure a large increase in DPS. Pistol skills like Bullet Rain Icon Bullet Rain & Meteor Stream Icon Meteor Stream also have some that you will want to obtain. Those skills are a good chunk of DPS, combined about a quarter of your damage so don't skimp on those tripods!
