Trying out a new series of posts here – every week (I hope) I pick a few videos of PSO2 gameplay with interesting yet effective builds, new tactics or just plain new missions. This week we have an episode of Maggy Busters.
If you fight a 12-man Emergency Quest boss, and it suddenly skips a phase, open the Nearby Characters window. Chances are a Gunner did it. Want to get your own super damage burst too? Read on.
This is Part 1 of the Gunner guide, which covers the skill tree and directions. Part 2 covers main and subclasses. Part 3 discusses gear and affixes, and Part 4 covers Photon Arts (PAs) and strategy.

Dex Mags are very misunderstood in PSO2. Common myths include:
- Dex Mags are not worth using
- Dex Mags are only good with some eclectic combination of Bouncer and Braver
- A bit of Dex on a Mag is good
“Nobody understands me!”
There’s some thread of truth in them, but they don’t tell the whole story, so this post is going to do exactly that. Starting with when not to use a Dex Mag.
I’ll be making boss kill videos to showcase Gu/Bo. It was touched on in Dual Blade Bouncer Guide Part 2, but there will be more in-depth coverage here. First boss will be Ringahda, but this post will be updated with other bosses eventually so stay tuned.
Ja-jaan! Welcome to Affixing 101 version 2.0. Most items drop with a bunch of random affixes. Typically, these random affixes are far from suitable for what the item will be used for. The solution would be to overwrite these affixes to suit you better.
Affixing has changed a lot since this was first written. In general, supply has greatly increased so things that used to be expensive are now quite affordable. I’ll show how to make reliable, cost-effective affixing formulas with minimal fodder-making involved, while allowing for as many options as possible.

The #1 thing Dual Blade Bouncers are known for in PSO2 is their high Striking-based DPS on bosses during Photon Blade Fever. But not all of the game is about pressing Shift ad infinitum on a gigantic, unmoving target. That’s where the rest of the Bouncer arsenal comes in.
Okay so there’s no water, but better that reference than Shingeki right? Anyway, Magatsu is here. PSO2 finally gets a kaiju fight – as if the previous bosses weren’t big enough. It even gets a new opening with lots of anime-style parkour.
Where’s my Megazord to fight this thing with?
The actual run on the first day is, as typical of maiden runs in endgame, disasteriffic.
Gearing a Dual Blade Bouncer is going to be expensive. Dual Blade Bouncers need a rainbow set of Dual Blades, and even a pair of Jet Boots for some. At least NT grinding makes this easier than before!
This guide will walk through options from basic to 13★s.
Bouncer’s main role is a boss killer with Photon Blade Fever (PBF). Despite not having main class skills, there are four titles that can be obtained by collecting rare Bouncer weapons, which will give a total 10% boost to Bouncer weapons when being a main class Bouncer. In addition, a main class Bouncer can equip 13★ weapons.
So you want to be Kirito! Or Archer! or Gundam Marute! Or… okay there’s way too many Japanese dual wielders in anime. That’s what Dual Blade Bouncer is all about though. So you look at the Bouncer skill tree, and what are all these terrible-looking skills like Aptitude Up 1?
It’s okay. This series is here to help. It’ll cover how to build, gear and play a Dual Blade Bouncer. This first part covers the Bouncer skill tree. Part 2 covers skill builds, including main and subclass choices. Part 3 talks about gearing and affixing and Part 4 covers how to use your Photon Arts and Techs to kill stuff.
