Most people that I know who is playing Grim Dawn has a gun wielding inquisitor in their list of characters. Especially the one that is wielding dual pistol. Aside from the fact that it really looks cool, gun wielding inquisitor’s main strength is its ability to deal sustained high amount of damage in range.

This article contains different builds of gun wielding inquisitor that will keep you shooting until ultimate difficulty.


Elemental Pierce Gunner Purifier

This is the basic gunner build for inquisitor which can deal huge amount of both magical and physical damage. The good thing of having multiple damage types, is it eliminates some problems in dealing with enemy resistance.

I will present 2 variants for this mentioned build. The first variant will be dual pistol type.

Two-handed range weapon variant

I mentioned earlier that I will present 2 variants for this build. The second one is using two-handed range weapon. Aside from changing the weapon, there will also be slight changes to skills and some major changes to devotions.

Below are the changes:

- Equip two-handed range weapon with bonuses to either elemental, fire, cold, lightning, or pierce damage.

- Regarding skills, remove 2 points from Flashbang and another 2 points from Searing Light. Assign 3 points to Searing Might of demolitionist and 1 point to Word of Arms of inquisitor.

- When it comes to devotions, remove Chaos Crossroads, Eldritch Crossroads, Blades of Nadaan, and Attak Seru, the Mirage. As replacement, choose Order Crossroads, Ascendant Crossroads, Kraken, Amatok the Spirit of Winter, and Bard’s Harp. Then put the single remaining devotion points to reduced stun duration of Empty Throne.
