Despite being one of the oldest memes in Guild Wars 2, this build deals decent sustained ranged damage, isn't reliant on Alacrity Alacrity or Might Might uptime, and is far more mobile than Deadeye - Power DPS Rifle. This makes it viable for kiting mechanics (such as flak on Sabetha) or doing ranged strat on Deimos.
If you are actually able to melee the boss Deadeye - Power DPS D/D will usually perform better.

This build doesn't have a real rotation and follows a simple DPS priority. The basic idea is to use 24px Deadeye's Mark and hold down Unload.png Unload with Netflix on your second screen.
If you are at max malice, you should use either Shadow Meld.png Shadow Meld or a stolen skill to gain stealth, then reset your malice with 24px Malicious Sneak Attack. This procs Revealed Training.png Revealed Training and allows you to start building up malice to proc 24px Maleficent Seven again, which gives you the initiative to sustain Unload.png Unload.

Decent build for kiting, and might be worth it in very disorganized groups with poor might uptime, but there isn't much else it can do.
