The gunner fires a massive laser beam that covers the entire screen, further boosted by “options” or smaller wingmen laser blasters. These disappear after the beam dissipates.


The Gunner is the slowest of the three Custom characters and his jump height isn't that great as well. However, he makes it up with his good array of ranged moves. His main vertical recovery move is the Lunar Launch. This move can be used in mid-air so it's a good way of lifting out of a deep fall in case you exhausted your double jumps already. Unfortunately, he doesn't have any more similar moves so he'll need to rely on double-jumps most of the time.



You're free to edit the Mii Gunner's movesets. The strategy will depend and change accordingly on the chosen specials for your Mii Gunner. Also, since you can change your Mii Gunner's equipment as well, you should take into consideration the stat bonuses and bonus effects your brawler can derive from those.
