The reason for this build to be among the top ones is the adaptability for both the melee and ranged combat. It includes the Engineer archetype fused with the Challenger build archetype to strengthen the protagonist for the aforementioned combat.

The former archetype allows the player to deploy some of the best weapons in Remnant 2 which further optimizes to increased fire rate and unlimited ammo using this particular build.
