Gunslinger: A Martial Archetype for the Fighter Class is a flavorful class that became one of the more popular unofficial sub-classes for its interesting design. When one of my players asked if they could play a gunslinger, my initial answer was yes, though I always look over unofficial content that will come up in my game. To my regret, I saw that the class wouldn’t function well with the game’s pacing, potential locations where resources would be scarce, and the needs of the other players.
I really wanted to make this class more accessible to more tables. To that end, I reworked the subclass to have greater versatility within a campaign, be more balanced against the other fighter sub-classes, and adhere more to 5e design principles without taking away the flavor.
