Maverick Hunter[edit]

Creating a Maverick Hunter[edit]

When creating a maverick hunter, ask yourself, what caused you to join the hunters? Were you simply created as one of them, or did you offer your services yourself? If so, why? Was it a fateful experience with a maverick, or an act of your own morality? What are your opinions on mavericks themselves?

Busters[edit]

A buster is a standard-issue weapon among the maverick hunters. It is a one-handed martial ranged weapon with a range of 60/120 ft, as well as the light property. On a hit, it deals 1d8 force damage. A buster costs 35 gp to purchase. You are proficient with busters, as shown in your list of proficiencies.

Alternate Weapons[edit]

Your weapons are equipped with special copying systems. Starting at 1st level, you have a number of prepared alternate weapons, as shown in the "Alternate Weapons" column of the Maverick Hunter table. Your hunter unit determines the list of alternate weapons you can learn. If an alternate weapon requires the target to make a saving throw, the DC is equal to 8 + your Charisma modifier + your proficiency bonus. Damages inflicted by alternate weapons are considered magical for the purposes of overcoming resistances and immunities. Activating an alternate weapon is an attack, and attack and damage rolls made with them use your choice of Dexterity or Charisma. You are proficient with your alternate weapons. You may activate an alternate weapon you have prepared as many times as you have uses for it, as shown by how many you possess. You regain expend uses of your alternate weapons once you complete a long rest. Over the course of a long rest, you may swap out any of your prepared alternate weapons for other ones from your list. At 11th and 17th levels, your alternate weapons gain a damage increase ("level" refers to your level in this class).

Hunter Unit[edit]

Depending on your unit as a maverick hunter, you utilize different abilities. At 1st level, you must choose between 17th Elite Unit, 0th Special Unit, and New Generation Prototype, all detailed at the end of the class description. Your chosen hunter unit grants you new features at 1st level, and again at 3rd, 7th, 13th, and 17th level.

Fighting Style[edit]

At 2nd level, you adopt a particular style of fighting as your specialty. Choose one of the following options. You can't take a Fighting Style option more than once, even if you later get to choose again.

Archery

You gain a +2 to attack rolls made with ranged weapons.

Dasher

Whenever you move within 5 ft. of a creature on your turn, you can make an attack against that creature as a bonus action.

Defense

While you are wearing armor, you gain a +1 to AC.

Two-Weapon Fighting

When you engage in two-weapon fighting, you can add your ability modifier to the damage of the second attack.

Weapon Recovery[edit]

You have learned to recover energy for your alternate weapons more quickly. Starting at 2nd level, once per day whenever you finish a short rest, you regain half your expended alternate weapons, rounded down.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Extra Attack[edit]

Starting at 5th level, you may take the Attack action twice, instead of once, on your turn.

At 11th level, you may take the Attack action three times on your turn.

Fast Movements[edit]

You are skilled in dashing about in the heat of battle. Starting at 6th level, your speed increases by 10 ft. if you aren't wearing medium or heavy armor.

Opportune Striker[edit]

Having fought many foes of lesser intelligence, you have developed quicker reflexes against your enemies. Starting at 9th level, you gain an extra reaction that can only be used for opportunity attacks.

Skilled Dash[edit]

Your movements have been further coordinated to evade. Starting at 14th level, whenever you take the Dash action on your turn, you no longer invoke opportunity attacks. Additionally, whenever you take the Dodge action on your turn, you may move up to half your speed.

Hunter Commander[edit]

You possess the ultimate maverick hunting skills. Starting at 20th level, you are immune to being frightened. Additionally, whenever you make a weapon attack or use alternate weapon that misses, you can turn the miss into a hit. You can activate this feature a number of times equal to half your Charisma modifier, rounded down (minimum of 1), regaining expended uses once you complete a long rest.

17th Elite Unit[edit]

Charge Shots

Your buster techniques allow you to power up your shots. Starting at 1st level, whenever you make a successful attack with your buster, you can choose to inflict 2d8 force damage, instead of the usual 1d8, on a hit. You can activate this ability a number of times equal to half your Charisma modifier, rounded down (minimum of 1), regaining expended uses once you complete a long rest.

Uncorruptable

You are firm in both belief and body. Starting at level 3, you are immune to mundane diseases, and you have advantage on saving throws against magical diseases and against becoming poisoned.

Alternate Weapon Adept

You utilize your alternate weapons more skillfully. Starting at 7th level, you can add your Charisma modifier to damage rolls made with your alternate weapons.

Stock Charge

You have become more skilled with charging your buster. Starting at 13th level, you can activate Charge Shots a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum of 2) before needing rest.

Nova Strike

You can channel charged energies to perform a devastating dash attack. Starting at 17th level, as an action, you can move up to double your speed and pass through up to 5 creatures on the way. Any creatures you pass through must make a Dexterity saving throw. The DC for this saving throw is equal to 8 + your Charisma modifier + your proficiency bonus. On a failure, they take 8d8 + your Charisma modifier force damage, or half as much on a successful one. If you end your turn inside a creatures' space and cannot occupy it, you are pushed 5 ft. away from that creature and take 1d10 bludgeoning damage. Once you activate this feature, you cannot use it again until you complete a long rest.

By Blade or by Buster

You can use both your sword skills and your sharpshooting in perfect synergy. Starting at 3rd level, whenever you make a successful attack with your longsword, you can make a buster attack against the target as a bonus action, or vice versa, provided you are in range and wielding both weapons in each hand.

Saber Initiate

You can power up your sword strikes with magical force. Starting at 7th level, you learn 1 cantrip of your choice: Booming Blade, Green-Flame Blade, or True Strike. Charisma is your spellcasting modifier for these spells. Additionally, slashing damage inflicted by your longsword is considered magical for the purposes of overcoming resistances and immunities.

Virus Absorption

The energies within your body allow you to empower yourself with normally corrupting effects. Starting at 13th level, whenever you are hit with an attack that deals necrotic, poison, or psychic damage, you can use your reaction to take no damage, and instead gain advantage on the next attack roll, saving throw, or ability check you make. If an attack deals more than 1 type of damage, including if two or more of those damage types are necrotic, poison, or psychic, you take no damage only from a damage type you have chosen among the three options. You can activate this feature a number of times equal to half your Charisma modifier (minimum of 1), regaining expended uses once you complete a long rest.

Fatal Slash

You have mastered the sword. Starting at 17th level, whenever you make a longsword attack, you can roll 1 extra damage die on a hit, unless you cast a cantrip you know on the same turn. If you score a critical hit, you instead roll 2 extra damage dice.
