Dungeon Fighter Online Gunner Wakes Up To The Second Coming

By Eugene . May 18, 2014 . 12:29pm


Online beat-em-up Dungeon Fighter Online is still going strong in Korea. It recently showed off a new update for the Male Gunner class, giving it its “Second Awakening” or more advanced classes.


Male Gunners will be able to turn themselves into Commanders, Ravens, Primes or Destroyers, depending on their chosen subclasses. The Mechanic Male Gunner, for instance, can upgrade himself into the Prime. You can get a taste of each class in the above trailer from Nexon.



The Raven has several point-blank area-of-effect skills now, while the Prime brings the robot army to the party and stationary gun emplacements. The Commander doesn’t shoot as fast as the Raven does, but what he lacks in straight speed he makes up by being able to call in aerial airstrikes to back up his shots and even sniper rounds.


Dungeon Fighter Online is out now on PC in Korea and servers are starting up again in North America.

    All of a sudden. DNF is relevant again. I won’t be touching the global one anytime soon, because of possible wipes.

    • Raymond

      Yea i don’t want to keep playing the new one and then have to start all over again if it comes back up. XD

  • Costras

    I know some people won’t want to play it because there will be a wipe, but supporting it now gives Neople all the better reason to bring it back quickly.

  • freezestar

    “servers are starting up again in North America.”

      I wouldn’t get TOO into it though as its in Alpha and I’m 99% sure there will be a character wipe. None the less at least its back (not in nexon’s hands). In case you were wondering there is no date for a Beta yet.

      • freezestar

        Well I think it would be less an “Alpha” and more a “Server Test” because the game already exists.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          No it would be alpha because it’s an alpha test of the localized version.

      • Karez

        >Not still released EU
        I…i just go crying in the room back. ;_;

  • Guest

    I know some people might not want to play now because of future wipes, but supporting it now gives Neople all the better reason to bring it back, and maybe even faster.

    • RichyGaming

      As long as the martial artist fighter is still around, I’ll still play.

  • Kamakuma

    I really want to make a summoner but have no idea how to make hybrids… Help me Senpais! t–t

  • ParrotProphet

    Primes? As in Optimus? I can be a Transformer!? :D

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Are people so new that character wipes scare them? It’s an alpha the point isn’t to settle down, it’s to test the game for bugs.

    • revenent hell

      How dare you point out the obvious!
      Actually I could care less if a testing character gets wiped but this game seems really interesting. I have no idea why it is but I want to play it :D

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        It’s side scroller dungeon fighter with fixed characters and sorylines for those characters, but customization options.

        • revenent hell

          Thank you as well for explaining the game but I kind of meant to say “I don’t know why it is”.
          Now days its rare to see a beat em up out in the world I am interested in. I kind of stick to the old school ones when the itch to play this game type strikes.
          But this game looks like its the right mix of things to make me want to give it a go.

      • NightzeroAX

        If you’ve played Old school beat em ups like Final Fight, Streets of Rage, Battletoads, Double Dragon then you might like this game. Basically mix those games with RPG elements and you have this game.

        • revenent hell

          Actually I meant to say “why it is” so edited.

          I actually like the old school beat em ups but I haven’t played one in ages though. Thank you for the description of the game :D

  • Yan Zhao

    Didnt expect Siliconera to report a DNF related article. Male Gunners second awakening was released slightly less than a month ago.

    But I guess this is due to the potential re-opening of the english version.

  • Vash bane

    they always have some kind of cool promo vid lol wait ….its coming back? interesting

    edit: just saw the trailer interesting so its going to have voices now

  • RunningWild1984

    Can’t wait for Priest 2nd awakening this September. Specifically for Infighter (Monk).
