Well that’s about it (FOR NOW) regarding Victor Saltzpyre’s Bounty Hunter Career path in Vermintide 2. One of my personal favorite careers – has some unbelievably OP synergies that can carry you hard at any point of the game. Bounty Hunter, while takes a while to getting used to, and requires some more specific weapon choices – rewards you greatly by allowing you to impersonate a hurricane.
