The Triggerman is a whirlwind of gunfire, recognized by his trademark fighting style — a pistol in each hand and a non-stop spray of lead hissing through the air. He combines rapid attacks with lithe defense, making him frighteningly effective in close quarters and any situation where heavy weapons cannot be brought to bear.
Attributes: Dexterity is by far the Triggerman’s most critical attribute, providing accuracy and defense during firefights.
Once per round as a free action during your Initiative Count, you may spend 1 action die to make a final attack with a readied handgun.

He stops being flat-footed when he takes an action, or is successfully attacked. or being attacked by an invisibleAn invisible character is physically masked from view, usually due to a Covert feat or super-science gear. He automatically becomes hidden at the end of each round during which he moves at least 5 ft. from his starting position as his last action during the round. Further, when an opponent targets the character with any attack or skill check, the opponent is considered blinded.
