A Rifle Mechanist build for sPvP which spams autoattacks until someone dies.

Archival note: made obsolete by the Rifle auto rework, no longer worth it

Skill Bar


Skill Variants


For the optional slot:

  • Rocket Boots - escape/mobility tool.
  • Tool Kit - a versatile kit which has ranged CC, a block, and even some melee burst.
  • Force Signet - passive damage and a CC, a greedy option offering little to no sustain on an already squishy build.

Template Code

Copy Template Code



  • Flashbang lowers your damage but offers more sustain/CC by adding a frequent source of Blind Blind and Daze Daze procs to the build.





  • Your role is to roam the map and +1 fights, overwhelming enemies with your damage.
  • Sustain's on the lower end, you're mostly going to be relying on escape tools when you're focused like Shift Signet, Rocket Boots or Jump Shot.
  • Most of the damage comes from spamming Rifle Burst, the autoattack.
  • Net Shot and Overcharged Shot are useful CCs for setting up burst.
  • Use Blunderbuss on CD, there's no reason not to.
  • Elixir U is one of your stunbreaks, but as long as any other stunbreak is available you're free to use it for boosting your auto attack spam with Quickness Quickness if you feel like it's worth it.
  • Signets retain their passives even when they're on CD so don't hesitate to use Rectifier Signet whenever your HP drops.

Auto attack damage lowered by about 40%. Completely useless in PVP now. If you see someone on your team using this build they are a complete noob because it's been gutted

New king of low tier. Requires very little effort, the build basically runs on autopilot, but expect it to stop working above a certain rating. Sustain's very low, the best defense here is either running away or pressuring the target so hard they can't fight back.
