Strengths and Weaknesses of Ranged DPS Characters in Gigantic

The obvious strength of Ranged DPS characters in Gigantic is in their range. These characters all primarily attack using guns or magic fired from afar. They’re at their best when ducking and weaving through cover, keeping a bead on opponents from a distance. Many of these characters are also capable of inflicting debuffs and status effects on their opponents, and effective use of these abilities can turn the tide of battle.

Like all DPS characters, ranged fighters have poor defense, so they need to be kept away from the front line as much as possible. To counter this, these characters are best kept behind the Frontline fighters and kept on the move as much as possible. Change their positions frequently to keep your opponents on their toes.

Best Ranged DPS Characters in Gigantic

For fast-paced ranged characters who want to move closer to the action, Beckett, HK-206, and Roland all provide decent options. Beckett is the most straightforward shooter character, making her easy to pick up, while her jetpack makes her an evasive character. HK-206’s rapid-fire main weapon gives him an edge, and his ability to turret himself boosts his defense, allowing him to defend specific positions. Roland can be troublesome for opponents with a powerful shotgun but can boost this with traps and an attack drone.

The best options for snipers are Imani and Voden. Imani has range on her side with a scope that can catch opponents from a distance, boosted by her ability to stay concealed in a smoke bomb. Voden’s strength comes from his dual role as a Support class, as he can snipe with his arrows from afar while holed up in a Hidden Spring. His Healer build also allows him to attack alongside his Green Man decoy, adding confusion for his opponents. Both Imani and Voden can also inflict status effects on their opponents, enhancing their damage capabilities.

For mage, Charnok and Oru provide some of the best options. Charnok can dish out a lot of damage with his main attack and Hot Hail but also has good options if he ends up in close combat. Both his deflecting shield and flame breath are good counter options, while Detonate also provides him with a solid escape option. Meanwhile, Oru is heavily focused on debuffs with his attacks, and his trap cards do add extra problems for his opponents. His debuffs can also be stacked, making him difficult to deal with.

Gigantic is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
