Hunter in Ghost of Tsushima is one of the 4 classes available with Ghost of Tsushima: Legends DLC. Classes can be unlocked after you play the game a little bit. The first class you can unlock is only when your player level reaches Rank 8. This is where you can select the first Class of your choice and equip.
Hunters are one with the bow. They slay oni from across the battlefield with a single well-placed arrow.
As a Hunter, you can stand on the edge of combat and snipe enemies before they even see you. You can also use explosive arrows to slow down groups, and when the combat gets really fierce, the Eye of Uchitsune ultimate attack will unleash multiple arrows straight at your enemies’ heads.
The Hunter is rarely seen by the enemy before the attack is commenced. the Hunter controls the battlefield from afar, picking off enemies from the safety of cliffs and rooftops.
Hunter is obviously best used at long distances, as her bow is what receives the most upgrades on the skill tree. It’s so much so that leveling up won’t have any effect on her close-range attacks — which is crucial in Legends.
