Need yourself a sharp shooter? I've got the experience if you've got the Cats.

Gunner Recruit is a randomly named Generic Recruit. They are a ranged combat specialist. They can be hired for 6,000 Cats, unless they are Hive, then they can be hired for 4,000 Cats.

They can be found in Eyesocket and Slave Markets. They have a chance of spawning in any town controlled by the United Cities, including when the location is "malnourished". They can be found in Crab Town, Mourn, The Hub, Waystation and Waystation Four, and, depending on certain World States, in Bark, Blister Hill, Clownsteady, Heft, Heng, Sho-Battai, or Stoat. They can also be found in locations controlled by Deadcat or Empire Peasants. They can be found in Shark, no matter which faction is in control of The Swamps.

Their race is determined by their faction (Drifters). They have a random Personality and after recruited have the "Player TOUGH Merc" Dialogue Package. Although this character can potentially spawn as a Hive Soldier Drone, Hive Worker Drone, or P4 Unit, due to conditions on recruitment dialogue, they can only be recruited if they are of those races if they also have a Smart Personality.

The Statistics here are taken from FCS. Players should be aware that non-player characters also level up while fighting.

This character's entry in FCS is named "hire gunner"

Sitting behind the barrel of a turret, clean of blood, free from noise... It's the best job you can have on the battlefield...

–Honorable Personality

Gramps always said I got eyes for shooting but arms for tooting... whatever that means. Basically he was too polite to tell me straight out that a child could beat me in an arm wrestle.

–Dumb Personality

Taking lives from the barrel of a turret is easy. You're clean of bloodied hands and guilt, you become numb to death...

–Smart Personality

Need yourself a gunner? I promise you I've got good eyes, eyes of a hawk. Been manning turrets since before I sprouted a beard on my face.

–Male Human
