2. Gunlancers won't be able to activate both shield skills at the same time instead you can switch from defensive stance to battlefield shield but not the other way around since only the former ability can be toggled.


3. Remember to activate Defensive Stance often, especially if you're about to safely overcharge with skills like Charge Stinger and Surge Cannon to deal more damage.
