Build Merits This build is centered on Rapid Fire element ammo which takes full advantage of Weakness Exploit, Critical Element, and Chain Crit. There are also enough slots which allows you to swap the appropriate Element Jewels, preferrably in Archfiend Armor Baulo's slots, when changing your elemental Light Bowgun.
Aim at a monster's weak spot to effectively use Element Exploit, which is a new skill added in Sunbreak's Title Update 1. Additionally, remember to restore your HP through Dereliction whenever you have more than one Qurio active.
QoL skills Reload Speed, Recoil Down, and Steadiness are added to the mix to improve the deviation, recoil, and reload variations of all the Light Bowguns that you will be using. You can add more QoL Jewels in your equipped Light Bowgun as all of them has at least one ① slot.

Can significantly increase the viability of certain ammo types of a bowgun by making them reload faster.

Maximum Might

Partbreaker increases damage on breakable parts by as much as 30% at level three, allowing you to break monsters down easier!
Tune Up
