I edited it out to gunner senses since I forgot it's a 2nd job skill and scientists could learn it too, but yeah, you got the idea. It's actually they do deal good damage with SB + Luckyfist, not may. You just never see people recommending it because people don't ever test stuff.
Nowadays time spent debuffing = time lost in doing damage. Lions are not particularly the best at tanking hits so killing as fast as possible is recommended.
I'm not a fan of armor destructor, I don't even think physical defenses affect bullet resistance, HV does, unless I missed something.
On the other hand, Lock On and Butt Plate are complete disasters and waste of TM skill points. I advise every sense type to stay away from these two skills as far as possible, they're the worst of the worst ;;
