I don't ever remember seeing Han Solo beating anybody's butt in a fist fight. He's a gunslinger all the way.

The argument can not be settled by weapons slots. Solo does not dual wield, nor does he have a hidden shotgun.

Based off of the movies, more so RotJ, Solo tends to be more SS Gunslinger. He gets back handed by a scout trooper for lack of ninja skills, and during the brawl at the shield generator bunker Solo practices some serious marksmanship with his blaster.

In the end I would have to say he is neither Gunslinger or Scoundrel, but his very own advanced class.

Let the flaming begin!
By that token, Luke Skywalker was a total noob for never learning Force Charge or Force Sweep when he hit level 2 and 3 respectively. Scandalous.


And Han was a total scoundrel. He was lazy, sneaky and used one blaster. None of the passive aggressive trigger happiness of gunslingers. Plus, Leia called him a scoundrel repeatedly, I recall.

He's a smuggler. Advanced classes are a crutch.

First off, Lando is the epitome of a WEAK opponent, and he made a LOUSY companion.

Secondly, any Gunslinger that can't smash a weak opponent's junk in the dirt using their melee moves... not deserving of the title.

I stand by my argument for Gunslinger. When I see him turn invisible or shoot bacta rays out of his butt to heal Chewie in a gunfight... then I might change my mind.

I agree with you that he is always running to cover....but sharpshooters dont run to cover, they just cover in place.....a scoundrel works better here as they dont have the mobile bunker, and actually have to run for cover when things get bad.
