General Description: The Gunner is one of the small set of basic classes you’ll begin the game with and, as such, it’s not one you’ll be using for the majority of the game. While it does have its moments with abusing Cat Nip’s SOS ???? ability in conjunction with Trigger Happy, most of the abilities this job provides barely make it worth using in the long run. Not to mention how the Cat Nip abuse isn’t in FFX-2 HD (or International).
