i would like to see more types of guns this time around.
Shotguns to have cone aoe and higher dmg closer up.
Pistols to have good balance of range/dmg/fire rate.
Rifles to have good def piercing ability's.
if they had a good range of gun types that act differently i might even think of being rng over other DD type jobs.
That might actually be very possible depending on whether or not guns are main or subweapons. If there is a class that uses guns as a main weapon, it is a guaranteed chance we will see your idea. We already know that within each class, there are already different types of weapons with a myriad of effects, such as the Pugilist having Cestis, Metal Knuckles, etc.
If guns are subweapons, like stones for Archers or javelins for Lancers, then it might not be possible. Still, I think that we will get a class that specializes in guns, because we can't possibly only have Archers as a ranged class (or at least, I hope not).
