Welcome back to Damage Town!

Gunners are fast-moving, high-DPS ranged combatants who never stop to ask questions—they’re too busy shooting first! With run-and-gun tactics and cool new weapons, True Action Combat has never been so satisfying!


TERA tests your timing and skill, enabling the best players to control their own destiny. A gunner combines fast-paced play with strategic use of summoned constructs, and positions herself to make use of the best skills for any given situation.

Maximize Willpower

A unique aspect of the gunner is how she uses Willpower to activate devastating attacks. A gunner generates Willpower every time she kills an enemy, and when her meter is full…look out! Willpower fades rapidly when not fighting, so don’t stop shooting until every enemy is dead!

Key Skills

A useful skill for getting your enemy’s attention. Not only does it deliver a spread of penetrating damage, but you’ll gain Willpower for each successful hit. And use your Rolling Reload skill afterward to move you into position and reload your arcannon for another volley.

Point Blank
Swing your Arcannon to slam your enemies, then fire an explosive shot to knock them back!

Arcane Barrage
Fire energy pulses that power through enemies, detonating at a point of your choosing. And your HB construct fires bombs at the same spot to seal the deal!


Burst Fire
Unload on multiple enemies at once with this Willpower-fueled skill, and keep firing penetrating shots until your bar is empty. Which may take a while, because you’ll get more Willpower with every kill.

Balder's Vengeance
Use your Willpower to deal critical damage to all enemies in front of you. Not only will they get your point, but you’ll be invincible for a short time!
