Well that’s about it (FOR NOW) regarding Markus  Huntsman Career path in Vermintide 2. Huntsman provides some serious offensive buffs for the team! The crit aura is welcome, as well as the on-crit debuff. The Huntsman also brings some serious ranged support to the team – able to snipe distant enemies without “wasting” ammo.
