    I want to say that it is most likely an outfit. Think of it as Hurk's equivalent to Kai's Archer Set. It will most likely be in the Depot. I could be wrong.

    Edit: Hurk's 2nd weapon might work like Arisha's playstyle. I.E Gun being in the Focus/Shield slot and the Blade being in the main weapon slot.

    But,does that mean you could make a+15 spellsword now and keep it for Hurk later or it's a differant one...

    No idea. We have no idea if he is actually sharing weapons with Arisha. I don't think he will but ya never know.

    Looks pretty different. I suddenly regret deleting my Hurk.

    Well, they did break out of the "secondary weapon stance must be the same" tradition after all! This opens up a lot of interesting possibilities for the remaining second weapons.

    I thought Karok already broke that

    Karok was the first one to have different normal attacks on his second weapon, but the idle stances are identical.

    I like what they showed in the video, but I'm worried it's going to look really dumb when people start getting 60+ speed on him.

    Delia could use a rapier after all!

    OR are they gonna keep her similar to Hurk and give her a different type of firearm? Whatever it is, can't wait ~

    the new weapon is called "Tayde" i don't know where's that name coming from, but i think it's not hybrid like arisha's sword+focus but a new set like swords, chains, etc.

    I need to know the mechanics of his playstyle, and although I disagree with the choice aesthetically/thematically, if it gives Hurk some mid-ranged firepower then this would indeed solve much of his S3 woes, or at very least be a step-in for Bosses that he really can't deflect reliable or at all. Greatsword to stomp S1/S2 content and this for S3 content.
    From what we can see here looks like the sword is the normal and the gun is the Smash, and looks like the R0 smash is a standing gun firing position. It also looks like they carried over the Greatsword normal-smash linking/chaining mechanic, as it appears you can link a smash with the next following normal in the chain and/or smash without resetting to the 1st normal.

    Looks overly dramatic for Hurk, seems like it would fit Sylas better.

    Goddammit, there's some Kai gameplay in there. After all that effort I went through to avoid that character like the plague, it gets implemented into the one I main.

    And why is he slicing + shooting monsters from the same range. That's stupid. And animation looks dumb, spinning around and posing for no reason.

    Now I feel like deleting Hurk. But I'll probably still play this weap when it comes out. fml

    Does he get a new dance at least?

    I wish I could follow the mindset of the devs. In no world would it ever make sense to me to make the greatsword wielder who fights like a berserker and only focuses on overpowering melee attacks and whose backstory is built off of a blacksmith making a greatsword as a hobby that only he can wield, use a gun. A ranged weapon, maybe. A gun, though? They're using the purely melee berserker character to introduce shotguns to the game? And why a shotgun and sword? If you're going to give him the arguable berserker weapon of guns, then why bother with a sword at all? If you want a gun/sword character, then why not use a character who already has the dual-usage thing going on like Arisha or Sylas?

    I really cannot see any logic behind this choice in weapons when there are a metric ton of suggestions that would have fit Hurk's playstyle and character better than this.

    The mindset is they were working on a new character that would dual weild gun +sword, new director came and said no new character, 2ndary weapons instead, and the devs were like " well we've been working on this for a while so instead of throwing it away lets just throw it on hurk"

    Laziness is always the simplest answer. Greed is 2nd.
