Teamfight Tactics Best TFT Gunslingers Team Comp (Patch 9.16) – Pirate Gunslingers

Technically, the best way to play Teamfight Tactics is to adjust as things happen. When TFT offers you a couple of Nobles or Wild, generally you should lean into those and utilize them for early game success. However, sometimes I find myself chasing after a certain team comp before the match even starts. If that’s you, then this guide should be right up your alley. This is our Best TFT Gunslingers Team Comp guide which is up to date as of TFT Patch 9.16.

A lot of the playerbase is currently exploring hyper carry Jinx and this is about the greediest team comp possible. We’ll update this guide with details as things change.

In the end, your team comp should look like: Camille, Gangplank, Graves, Jinx, Lucian, Miss Fortune, Tristana

With this group you’ll get the following buffs:

  • 6 Gunslingers: 50% chance to attack three additional targets in range.
  • 3 Pirates: You earn up to 4 additional gold from each PVP round. Average gold per chest is 1.75 gold.
  • 3 Blademasters (If Jinx has BORK): Blademaster units have a 35% chance on hit to attack one extra time.
  • 2 Hextech: Throw a bomb at an enemy unit with an item, and disables all items in a 2 hex radius for 8 seconds.

Recommended Items:

  • Jinx: Blade of the Ruined King (Spatula + Recurve), Rapid Firecannon (Recurve + Recurve), Hextech Gunblade (BF Sword + Needless)

Gunslingers Ranked by Priority

If your main synergy is Gunslingers, this is the order in which you should prioritize the Gunslinger champions. Obviously, you’ll have other synergies that you need to account for, but if you need to transition up, this is the order in which you should do so.

  1. Jinx: If Jinx ends up anything like Draven, she’s easily the best Gunslinger. Most of these champions are only good because of the number of champions they can attack with the buff, but Jinx can hyper carry matches.
  2. Lucian: Lucian is a common pick in general in the current meta, and for good reason. He only costs 2 coins a unit, and you’ll roll him a lot, making him very easy to level up. He’s viable in teams throughout the entire game, and his ability lets him dash away from danger. Even beyond a Gunslinger team comp, he’s a strong and useful unit.
  3. Tristana: Tristana is a 1 cost unit, so she’s really easy to build up and have handy in the early and mid-game. Additionally, Tristana’s ability is great for tankier units that are protecting weaker allies, as when her bomb explodes it has an area of effect.
  4. Gangplank: Gangplank has a lower DPS than most of his Gunslinger allies, and his ability can whiff if he isn’t placed correctly on the field, so he’s a bit higher maintenance than other Gunslingers. However, he also has a Blademaster synergy, and if you’re running both, you can rectify his DPS in short order and a bit of luck.
  5. Miss Fortune: As a 5 cost unit, Miss Fortune can be hard to pull and will only be available in the late game, but she’s the unit you can build an entire team around. Miss Fortune has high DPS and an ability that can hit a lot of enemies, and she can decimate opponents with the right items.
  6. Graves: Graves is a Gunslinger Pirate, much like Miss Fortune and Gangplank, so if you’re trying to run both synergies at once Graves can be useful. However, the Pirate synergy of “more money” isn’t the most useful beyond the early game, and Tristana is the better 1-cost Gunslinger of the bunch.

And that’s it! Best of luck with your TFT Gunslingers comp! If you’re looking for the best TFT team comps in the current 9.16 patch, we have a guide dedicated to that!
