InfoEdit

The Hunter ハンター is the ranged DPS for the party. It requires some skill to play because you have to manually aim every shot. Their explosive arrow is an important part of the kit as it can be detonated by other party members or pawns for high damage. Paired with the crimson arrow ability found later in the game they can deal extra damage on impact upon hitting the enemy with an arrow shot from the bow, doesn't work when climb attacking.

Tips:

Pressing in R3 (the right analog stick on a controller) will zoom into a sniper mode once you've unlocked the keen sight core skill, your shots are slightly slower than basic arrows, but deal high amounts of damage with increased Blow Power, longer range with 100% accuracy aka instant hits if you're aim is on point at a moving target.

Backward Retreat Quickly dodges backwards, creating distance between you and your enemies Decreases Stamina cost

Increases Endurance during usage

LV.6: Motion changes. Increases invulnerability frames

Has invulnerability frames, can cancel all animations except kicks, special arrows switch, reloading and Crimson Arrow. Can immediatly assume the stance you were in before using Backward Retreat if you press the skill key again [or bow Aim key] quickly at the end of the animation (ie.If you were shooting Threefold Arrow, then cancel it into Backward Retreat and use Threefold Arrow again at the right time, you'll skip the loading animation for Threefold Arrow and be able to immediately shoot), couple this with skill loading animation cancel and you can actually start shooting your skills earlier (This technique will glitch out with Cloudburst Volley if done too quick, resulting in emptying your quiver while shooting nothing. This can also loop Flying Din without ever playing the loading arrow animation if you repeatedly spam the skill during the cartwheel, making it a stunfest)


This works well with skill BELOW Lv.6, above make it too slow. Demonstration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWBLKVw7pWY

Above technique is only to start a skill sooner than default time, not to spam it (it's just to cancel the stance change/1st arrows loading animation), the one below is good to spam a skill but not very wise in stamina consumption

You can delay your shot at any time, and start over from the begging, letting you deal high blow powered shots in a fast manner.

Not sure about stagger though, probably is still a combat stance.
