Gunslinger is a Hunter subclass in Destiny. Gunslinger's super ability is Golden Gun, a powerful illuminated hand cannon that only allows for three shots, but deals tremendous damage to enemies. Gunslinger also contains some area-control passive abilities that allow players to force enemies to take certain paths or doors. The Golden Gun does not critically hit. Gunslinger Hunters have a natural affinity to ranged combat, unlike a Bladedancer Hunter's close combat focus.
