Build Merits As of Title Update 2, no new Lv 8 Shelling Gunlances have been introduced, meaning we're still recommending the same weapons as the other builds.
Sneak Attack is a unique skill for Gunlances as it provides a 20% boost to all your attacks, including shelling and Wyvern's Fire, provided you hit the monster from its back half. This becomes more valuable in multiplayer as you'll have more chances to stay behind the monster. This build focuses on shelling damage but skills that affect your melee damage are also added to accomodate different playstyles.
This build also assumes a minimum of a Lv.2 slot weapon, so you're free to add skills depending on the free slots your weapon has.
