At level 1, craft a custom made firearm, tailored to your exact desires, looking how you want it, and working how you want it. Once per turn, you can take an action to fire your gun, pick a target within 200 ft., the target takes an amount of damage equal to one roll of your Gunfire Damage die, a shown in the Gunfire Damage column of the Gunner table, and one ammunition, as shown in the Ammunition column of the Gunner table, is expended. You regain 1 expended ammunition at the end of a short rest and two at the end of a long rest. This attack deals piercing damage as a default, but a successful DC 20 tinker’s tools check can change it to any damage type of the Gunner’s choice.
At 2nd level, you become skilled in drawing your firearm. You can now add your proficiency bonus to initiative rolls when the weapon your will unholster/unsheathe is a firearm, this includes your personal firearm.
At level 5, you can make a Dexterity (sleight of hand) check with a DC equal to your firearm’s weight(use a 10 for your personal firearm, as you have fitted it to your desires perfectly) before initiative rolls are made. On a success, instead of adding your proficiency bonus, you simply have the initiative roll made with advantage.
At 8th level, you automatically succeed that save.
Ability Score Increase
When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th 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.
At level 3, any damage you deal from firearms, including your personal firearm, is considered magical for the sake of overcoming resistances.
At 5th level, your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check or attack roll you make with a firearm, including your personal firearm.
At level 6, the range of firearms, including your personal firearm, doubles when wielded by you.
At level 7, you learn the best way to pull a trigger and reload. Now, you can can make a Dexterity (sleight of hand) with a DC equal to the weight of your firearm(use a 10 for your personal firearm, as you have fitted it to your desires perfectly) check after you make an attack with a firearm, or use your personal firearm. On a success, you can make another attack with said firearm(or your personal firearm, if that was what you used) as a bonus action.
At level 10, you automatically succeed this check.
At level 9, attack and damage rolls made for firearms, including your personal firearm(though it has no attack roll being made), are made with advantage.
When you reach level 10, you roll double damage dice when making an attack with a firearm at less than half of your normal range, this includes your personal firearm.
