The Gunner Trapper was released unnamed on July 18, 2016, and was named on July 22, 2016. It is one of the five tanks that branches off the Trapper and one of the three Upgrade choices from Gunner. It may not further upgrade.
The Gunner Trapper features a circular base. It has only two Gunner Barrels on the front (but with much more Bullet Damage and Penetration than Gunners) in exchange for a slightly larger Trap Launcher on the back, which has a slower reload base.
The Gunner Trapper has two Barrels and one Launcher giving it access to both Bullets and Traps. The Barrels have a decent Reload while its Launcher has a lower Reload. The Barrels are also as small as the Gunner’s barrels. Its Bullets have a great Bullet Speed, normal Bullet Damage, and weak Bullet Penetration. Its Traps are slightly bigger than Trapper’s, Tri-Trapper’s and Overtrapper’s. It also possesses a great Trap damage and Penetration while low Trap Speed.
- Strong against: Body Damage based tanks, Gunners, Auto Gunners, Overseer Classes (new users / bad build tanks), slow tanks with low Penetration, low Reload tanks, Auto Tanks, Penta Shots and Spread Shots (if used correctly).
- Weak against: Bullet spammers, the Destroyer branch, high DPS tanks like the Triplet and Sprayer, tanks with good Penetration, fast tanks, Overseer Classes (skilled user + good build), other Trapper Classes, Boss tanks.
As the Gunner Trapper
This tank is very versatile—the combination of Traps and Bullets should scare off most targets. Even though the bullets are small and look weak, they do a surprisingly good amount of damage, all while having good penetration. Point the mouse at your target (the gun is on the front). If the target is one of your weaknesses, turn around and point your Launcher at it (unless the target is fast, in which case point your guns at it and run while using their recoil and letting your Traps fall behind you as you outrun them). Skilled Drone users could weave their Drones through your barrage. Tanks with Cannons can break right through your barrage so avoid those two at all costs. Trying to fight another Trapper Class will stall you both out, so don’t. If you see a Sniper Bullet, turn your Launcher towards it. Try not to fight Bosses or they will either swarm you with Drones or stall you out with Traps. Still, the low level classes are ideal enemies to chase off because of their versatility.
If used correctly, the Gunner Trapper (and other trapper classes) can be a major counter to the Penta Shot and the Spread Shot. With terms of the Gunner Trapper, the player can use its traps to block the target’s bullets completely (assuming all bullet stats maxed out (except for bullet speed)). Then the Gunner Trapper can turn around and shoot against the target. The Penta Shot/Spread Shot doesn’t have a chance at destroying the player while they’re behind all their traps.
Against the Gunner Trapper
A tank with high DPS and RoF is effective against the Gunner Trapper since its bullets' penetration are lower compared to other tanks; And the massive amount of bullets can and will overwhelm the Gunner Trapper.
Overseer-branch classes are also effective against this tank, As long as the drones have good stats to overcome the damage dealt by the Gunner Trapper's bullets. The best way to deal damage to this tank is to send your drones from the side or from behind.
Destroyer branch tanks can destroy multiple traps from this tank due to having massive penetration, And its massive bullet can take out numerous bullets fired by the Gunner Trapper. The massive recoil possessed by Destroyer branch tanks will make it difficult for the Gunner Trapper to hit targets in the Destroyer branch. (Except the Skimmer, which has a significantly less amount of recoil compared to other Destroyer branch tanks.)
- It was one of the five tanks added on July 18th.
- When the update it was added in first dropped, it was one of three tanks that didn’t have a name. The Mega Trapper was named later that day. Still later this tank was given the name Gunner Trapper, along with its previously unnamed kin the Overtrapper.
- Its Traps are medium-sized in comparison to the base Trapper’s small Traps and Mega Trapper’s large ones. Oddly, medium size traps do the same amount of damage as small ones.
- The Gunner Trapper’s launcher has the same size with the Mega Trapper.
- It is one of the 6 tanks that have multiple forms of ammunition, having Bullets & Traps: the others being the Hybrid (Bullets & Drones), Overtrapper (Traps & Drones), Auto Trapper (Traps & Auto Bullets), Auto Gunner (Bullets & Auto Bullets) and the Auto Smasher (Auto Bullets & Body Damage).
