Natural cover provides a much higher ranged defense bonus than the GS's mobile bunker, thus good gunslingers do, indeed, run (or rather roll) to cover when possible.
Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good kick to the balls, kid.

A smuggler without an AC.

Both Hon and Luke were level 6 at the start of the OT. Luke overleved on Hoth by fighting the Wampa elite and got his AC on Dagobah. Han just became worm food and a mantelpiece.

Not to thread ninja, but does anyone know where the shotgun idea came from? Is there someone in the EU who used one, or was it just the obvious derivative of the whole outlaw cowboy motif they went with?

Good question, I was wondering that too. I love the shotgun idea, regardless.

Let the flaming begin!
he got caught after LOTS of successful smuggling runs,,he did it several years

death star got him because they thought it was a moon

he doesnt exist in this game, because he would have a lot of skills in space,,also ship repairs

I seriously think people keep insisting he'd be a scoundrel because somebody called him a scoundrel in the movie. Scoundrel is defined as a dishonest or unscrupulous person, or a rogue. It is used as an advanced class distinction because it sounds smugglerish. That's all. Not because somebody thought Han Solo behaved like some dishonest two-bit villain.

If I had to choose one class present in this game to fit Han Solo it would most definitely be gunslinger. He doesn't fit the scoundrel advanced class very well at all, the only thing he has in common with it is wielding one blaster and somebody calling him a scoundrel. "Scoundrel" was an allusion to his personal character, not his choice of combat style.

However I agree that he's actually more of a mix of both Scoundrel class and Gunslinger class, with a heavy Gunslinger bias.

But seriously, you guys, this whole "he's a scoundrel because he by definition acts like the textbook definition of scoundrel" thing is just stupid. He's a gunslinger because mechanics-wise he fits it better. That's if you have to choose between scoundrel and gunslinger. Otherwise, he's probably neither. Insisting he's a scoundrel advanced class because his personality is dishonest and roguish even though his fighting style really doesn't mesh well with it at all is just stupid. Stop it.

Han would be a mix of gunslinger and scoundrel but more gunslinger than scoundrel. Now with that being said we all know that Han is a dirty fighter because he shot Greedo first.

He wasn't ether of the two. He was just that bad arse that he ran 'Smuggler' he didn't need no stinkin' advanced class!
It ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

I think a hybrid scoundral sawbone. If you remeber when Lai got shot at the Deathstar shield he ran to look to see how bad she was hurt and if he could help not just shooting back.

Just saying he might have a bit of healer in him.
