The Gadgeteer

This specialisation can be found as part of the following careers: Bounty Hunter (ee-cr)

Considering how often a single Bounty Hunter finds themselves faced with terrible odds (more often than not an acquisition has friends or employees who work hard to protect them), it’s not surprising how many specialise in high-tech gear and weapons. The Gadgeteer excels at presenting themselves as a one person battleforce, at least for a short time. Using both the latest tech and their own personally-modified gear, a Bounty Hunter with this specialisation can be hard to stop.

Gadgeteers add the skills to their repertoire, making them ranged combat experts, effective technicians and masters of surveillance. Gadgeteer talens lean heavily towards gear use, taking down targets, and adapting to tough situations.

Gadgeteer-specialisated Bounty Hunters are in many ways the ultimate hybrid of tech expert and combatant, for the smaller groups, this may be a perfect choice. Gadgeteers – especially those who are operating as Independent Bounty Hunters – have little trouble signing for nearly any job. After all, the credits they need for that next nift piece of tech have to come from somewhere.
