    I’ve been keeping an eye on the CMS2 arena ratings and there current season the highest I’ve seen gunner was 14th in 1 v 1s. Not that is states whether or not they’re at a disadvantage, but it looks like they have the ability to contend with other classes.

    Heavy Gunner isn't that popular of a class in the the high-rankings it seems. If your goal is consistently landing in the Top 10, then HG might not be the pick for you. However, it'd be all the more impressive if you managed to make it there regardless of Berserkers flooding the rankings. I mean, the Wizard somehow managed to sneak himself in the top 20, so it's not impossible for a HG to do the same.

    I guess with a little bit of hardwork you can reach it.

    The problem I forsee with HGs is that most of their abilities that are good for PVP have cooldowns so you only really get one shot to win the fight before they just run in and kill you while your skills are on CD since after that you only have skills where you're standing still. It'd take a lot of good strategy, precision, timing, and gimmicks to win all the way to high rank I think. Idk how much the current rankings mean because maybe there's not a heavy gunner who really wants top 10 playing since they're so rare to see already. I believe in HGs PVP potential; someone who's been playing CMS2 for the last year told me HGs are pretty good at it too.

    There was one point during the season an archer was rank 1 on cms. I'm not going to deny that hg will struggle but just have to see what kind of game we get with gms.
