    Sure shot best traits. Luck 2nd. Dodge. Bullet dodge and lastly marksman.

    Dodge even on ranged survivors? Not marksman? I personally think luck is always welcome :blush:

    Hello @Conan1976

    It may depend on the way you play , but for me I would go with

    1-Luck (by a mile)
    2-Dodge
    3- Marksman
    4- sure shot (but with vigilant still to be released , this could change)
    5- defence / bullet dodge (depends on how much you fight humans or do outpost)

    Don't forget , over time you can have 5 traits at 5/5 so importance won't matter as long as you have the traits. Good luck!

    If you want to see 4000-5000 damage every attack. Better to have sure shot traits and luck. This is my shooter damage.

    The Sure Shot trait is in combination with overwatch?

    @Conan1976 that is ,as of yet, one of the new trait unknowns , but our group is testing it currently. If it turns out to work during overwatch , it's an amazing trait , if not then it's a good trait. I have suspicions , but want to be sure before confirming.

    As for the dodge on ranged question , yeah man , I would take ranged on any survivor over any trait except luck. Can be the difference between life and death and injury / no injury in challenges and outpost and I tend to avoid hospital visits whenever possible lol .. only class I might forego dodge , is assault . The extra damage traits can be a huge difference maker. Cheers !

    Sure shot traits combination with luck and destructive traits weapon. Sure shot traits effects attacking while not moving. Not overwatch

    @Oliverfelix have you tested this?
    Not the combination with luck and destructive part , but the fact you stated that it doesn't work with overwatch
  • Conan1976Conan1976 Member Posts: 758

    Its a few percent in overwatch. Better to use it while not moving its on details of sure shot and more consistent to get critical hit.

    lucky, dodge, bullet dodge, marksman, sure shot

    Maybe I'm old fashioned. But I still think wide bore should be a must have for any good hunter.

    If you dont have sure shot traits in hunter or any range better to retire it. You're damage will not go up 4000-5000.

    @CanadianMike

    bore is no trait on the survivor...

    @Oliverfelix shure shot most important to you

    Yes sure shot is very important. Having 40% critical chance is huge.

    @Japes87 I think bullet dodge trumps iron skin for a few reasons:
    1. Luck stacks with bullet dodge, but not iron skin.
    2. Ranged enemy raiders are becoming more and more common, so the outpost is no longer the only place to take advantage of it.
    3. Not getting hit at all is better than getting hit for reduced damage, ESPECIALLY in the 'end game' high levels of the weekly challenge.

    Other than that, I agree with the rest.

    I had a legebdary but without Dodge trait. What happrns if I upgrade all traits to lv 5? Maybe I have chang
  • OvidmikelOvidmikel Member Posts: 965
    Imo these 2 hunters have perfect traits. With gold luck on a weapon and gold dodge gold bullet proof on armour be hard to stop.

    For hunger, Without a doubt:

    Luck
    Marksman
    Dodge
    Bullet dodge
    Iron skin

    For bruisers and warriors replace marksman with retaliate.

    Winning/losing the really challenging stuff ultimately boils down to surviving. These traits are functional 100% of the time and do not require overwatch or stationary actions.

    Luck is the single most important survivor trait. If my radio call pulls an epic or legendary survivor without this trait, they are automatically scrapped. I don't bother wasting points on a class hoping to get it as the 5th random trait you can't see.
