Good Day everyone,

I need help to choose my next character. I am looking for a ranged DPS (Exclude Jedi or Sith)
Looking for a good balance between PvP, PvE, and Story.
Looking at SS-Gunslinger vs Arsenal-Merc vs PT-Vanguard. I'd like to deal damage from distance and on the move.
I fancied the double gun picture, but seems to me a gunslinger needs to stay put to deal the damage.
Your EXP and advice is recommended to help me choose between the three

Thank you in advance.

Vanguard is a melee dps (although with numerous abilities at 10m range but that's not ranged). And yes gunslingers need to be in cover most of the time. If you want ranged with movement, then mercenary is definitely the best choice of those 3.

Vanguard is close range burst.
Gunslinger is a turret though you can be a bit mobile with dirty fighting.
If you want firepower and mobility, go Merc and go arsenal.
