The Gunner is a high firerate tower. The Gunner mainly uses automatic weapons, and is considered to be the best tower for Endless.

The Gunner uses an array of weapons, from his MP5/10, AK47, P90 to fictitious modified P90s.

  • The Level 5 and 6 Gunner Deals splash damage and is required to go far in Endless.
  • Many players use low level Gunners to deal with early Hidden Voids.
  • However, he doesn't get lead penetration until level 5.
  • This is mainly to conserve cash for later on in the game as Gunners are still one of the most viable choices for going late game and beyond.
  • From Wave 61 onwards, it is required to upgrade Gunners to Level 5 as the rushes of high health Voids can overwhelm single targeting towers, including Level 4 Gunners and below.


  • A Level 6 Gunner can deal up to 1,520 damage from 142 KFP90's on the whole board.
    • The Kitsutori version requires 119 KFP90's to max out at 2,500 damage.
  • There is also the Kitsutori Badge that is linked to getting a Level 6 Gunner.
  • This is widely considered to be one of the best towers in game.
  • Getting a Level 6 Gunner in Ancient Dunes will cause the map's skybox to turn into a void-like space, and you will get a badge for doing so.
  • The best Guardians to bring when using the Gunner are Cassy and Ruby Queen due to their buffs favoring Ruby towers.
  • Dawn is the brother of Fade.
  • Dawn's full name is Dawn Usagikami.
