The Rise of the Gunslinger Update for Blade & Soul is Now Available

Aliso Viejo, Calif. – Sept. 13, 2017 – Through the shadow and the flame arises a new playable class for NCSOFT’s hit MMORPG, Blade & Soul, the Gunslinger. The latest update introduces the Gunslinger player class, a dual-wielding offensive powerhouse that can zip across the battlefield with grappling hooks and deal massive amounts of damage. Along with the Gunslinger character class, the Blade & Soul: Rise of the Gunslinger update includes a total overhaul to the in-game crafting system, the return of the Tower of Memory event, and more. Blade & Soul: Rise of the Gunslinger is available now and free to play.

The Gunslinger class is a single-target damage expert that requires players to master gunfire combos with a reloading mechanic to be able to continue to crank out flame- or shadow-based attacks. High mobility, fluid combos, and several escape tools involving grappling hooks to safely dodge attacks make the Gunslinger class an approachable class with plenty of dungeon/raid utility and single-target PVP damage – it’s appropriate for newcomers and veterans alike.

In addition to the new character class, Blade & Soul: Rise of the Gunslinger also brings about changes to the game’s crafting systems, and streamlines the upgrading of end-game equipment.
