All he had known, all he had loved-- killed by the wild beasts. He could hear his own screams echoing in his ears as he dropped to his knees and drew his blade. Driven by madness, he began to carve a cursed symbol into his own flesh. Pain was forgotten and only revenge filled his mind. Soon, the symbol was complete and, bathed in his own rage-filled blood, a bargain was struck. The warrior's wish would be granted. He would be given the power that he so desired and the opportunity to exact his revenge. The now-cursed warrior was given two hell-forged firearms and was reborn as Gunblade, Hell's Ranger. Once a Lawman, now the Sheriff of the Damned.
Gunblade is a versatile ranged agility carry who excels in close quartered combat. Grappling Shot, followed up with Crippling Slugs while attacking at Lethal Range, is a recipe for disaster for any enemy hero in the game.

Attacks deal bonus damage the closer you are to your target.
Your attacks against enemy heroes gain +30/45/60/75% Base Damage and True Strike if you are within 200 units of your target. Within that range, your attacks are also considered Melee Attacks, and you gain half of that bonus against creeps.
Otherwise, your attacks gain up to +20/30/40/50% Base Damage at 200 units, tapering to 0% at 600 units.
Toggle to swap to Melee Mode.
Gunblade will attack with his blade to indicate when he attacks within 200 range.
If you have a Wingbow in your inventory, the maximum effective range will change to 700 units.
Gains +15/22.5/30/37.5% Base Damage against creeps within 200 units.
When toggled to Melee mode, Gunblade's Attack Range is reduced by 400 and his hero type is changed from Ranged to Melee.
This causes effects such as Wingbow to give Gunblade its melee bonuses instead of the ranged bonus.
