Gunbreaker is a a job in Final Fantasy XIV introduced in the Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers expansion. Like many of the jobs introduced after A Realm Reborn, it has no base class, starting at Level 60 and can be unlocked by completing the quest "The Makings of a Gunbreaker" offered by a Gods' Quiver Bow in New Gridania (X 11.5, Y 11.9).

ProfileEdit

The Hrothgar of northern Ilsabard have passed the art of the gunblade from generation to generation. The weapon itself combines a sword with a firing mechanism, emitting a range of magical effects by utilizing aetherically imbued cartridges. Originally employed by Queen Gunnhildr's personal guard, they were once known as "Gunnhildr's Blades" and differ greatly from the similarly named weapons used in the Garlean Empire.
—Lodestone

Gunbreaker is a tank job that wields a gunblade in battle. Unlike the models used by the Garlean Empire (although the starter weapon is very close, if not identical, to a kind used by Garlean forces), the Gunbreaker's gunblades fire aetherically-charged bullets into the blade to enhance their cutting power and the force of their strikes. By performing combos, they can gain a cartridge with which to use a wide variety of powerful techniques.

StoryEdit

Final Fantasy XIV: StormbloodEdit

Final Fantasy XIV: ShadowbringersEdit

EquipmentEdit

Like the other tanking classes, Gunbreaker uses the Fending armor sets while also having its own relic gear. Unlocking the class also comes with an "Outsider" gear set, modeled after Squall Leonhart's attire (his Dissidia attire is also available as a Veteran Reward). The Gunbreaker's Level 80 gear includes an armored long trenchcoat adorned with ammo belts fastened to their tailcoats.

Job GaugeEdit

The Gunbreaker's Job Gauge displays whether the tank stance, Royal Guard, is in play. Performing combos will fill up the Powder Gauge beside it, holding up to two rounds.
