You’ll find all sorts of information here regarding the Bounty Hunter Career (for Victor Saltzpyre) in Vermintide 2. The Bounty Hunter is a borderline OP brawler that rewards maximization of its melee / ranged hybrid style. Sure-shot critical strikes is about as good as it sounds.
Bounty Hunter Passive Abilities:
- Blessed Shots: Guaranteed ranged critical hit every 10 seconds or on melee kill.
- Ammo Pouches: Double ammunition capacity.
- Quick Release: Increased reload speed.
Bounty Hunter Career Skill – Locked and Loaded: Victor fires a powerful shot that pierces through enemies.

One of my personal favorite careers – has some unbelievably OP synergies that can carry you hard at any point of the game.

I love using BH with axe and repeater pistol, 8 shoot critical with repeater pistol is so damn good. With talent Prize bounty(no ammo use) it becomes so fun to play. Kill one with axe then shoot your pistol and for bosses repeater pistol(from near) deals most damage, even more than our ability. For talents %5 a.s, %25 power on crits, no ammo consume, kill grants thp, encore becomes like bullshit. U wont die unless they surround you. OverPowered character but its fun to use.
