Diablo Immortal is a pretty competitive game. With so much equipment and so many class types, there's a lot to keep an eye on, and this Diablo Immortal Demon Hunter build should help you at the start. It may look like a shallow game given how much you can do in five minutes, but there's a trick to maxing out your potential. Without dropping hard cash, at least.
Getting you through the first 60 levels and the start of PvP, we'll give you a base of information to start building your own class with. After that, it's time to get creative and work out what works best for you.
If you want to test out the other class, our Wizard build, Barbarian build, and Crusader build should help you out. If you can't decide what is right for you, maybe our Diablo Immortal tier list will help.
Diablo Immortal Demon Hunter build - best skills for leveling
|Knockback Shot (swap for Sentry when able)|
|Rain of Vengeance|
|Strafe (swap for Daring Swing when able)|
The basic attack for the Demon Hunter, Crossbow Shot, is a really solid skill. Although it slows you down to use it, Crossbow Shot can do very high damage on a single creature. The class' ultimate, Volley, then increases this damage and movement speed.
Knockback Shot is an essential pairing with Crossbow Shot early on. The Demon Hunter benefits from range, and Knockback Shot will push your enemies out there. If you ever feel crowded, it's a good way to get some room and avoid taking substantial damage.
Multishot, Rain of Vengeance and Strafe all provide area damage. When paired with proper mob management, they all work to burn down groups of demons at record speed.
When you get to level 15, it's worth swapping out Strafe for Daring Swing, allowing you to do damage to a cluster of enemies whilst being temporarily invulnerable. It's not the most powerful skill out there, but the added mobility should help get you around the map faster as well. Just be careful around obstacles.
Lastly, Sentry will round off the Diablo Immortal Demon Hunter build until level 60. Replacing Knockback Shot, this skill allows you to summon two little turrets to do much of the shooting for you. Kite your enemies around with Daring Swing while these are up, and you'll shoot them down without ever getting hit.
Diablo Immortal Demon Hunter build - best Battle Pass legendary weapon
Through the battle pass, there are tonnes of items you can pick and ways of building out your class. That being said, playing to the Demon Hunter's strengths is the best thing you can do.
For this reason, you should go with The Hungerer. It lets the Crossbow Shot cut right through enemies, granting extra damage for every enemy hit. Considering you'll be using this skill more than any other, it's a worthy addition to your loadout.

They are a high damage class but can occasionally be a little squishier than others, due to their ranged style. If you can tank just a little bit of damage, it will help you out in the long run. This being said, like any other class, raw damage comes above all else when it comes time to choosing a weapon.
Best legendary gems for Demon Hunter in Diablo Immortal
|Legendary Gem Priority|
You may spot this for most Diablo Immortal classes, but Everlasting Torment is one of the very best gems in the game. It synergises well with most classes and tends to ramp up your damage over time.
Next, Fervant Fang is an excellent high priority damage boost. If you're looking to take down a single creature, this is an absolutely necessary gem and worth throwing into your build.
Lastly, the Berserker's Eye is a really solid choice, dealing extra damage at the cost of taking a little bit more. As the Demon Hunter is a ranged class, you shouldn't struggle too much here but you can really get punished if you're caught so it's worth bearing in mind.

Generally, with the Demon Hunter, you should focus on high damage from afar, as well as plenty of agile moves. You don't want to tank too much damage, so make sure you rotate around oponents, ambushing your enemies and fleeing when they get too close. Picks equipment and gems that favour high damage and agility.
Diablo Immortal Demon Hunter build - Paragon traits and best slots
As Paragon Traits are more of an end-game stat choice, we won't go too in-depth here. Initially, follow the Vanquisher page, putting points into Damage followed by Zeal.
Both of these options will allow you to do as much damage as you possibly can as soon as you hit 60. As Demon Hunter can spread their damage and take down enemies quickly, Zeal is a great choice for a quick and easy boost as you open the floodgates for bigger enemies in the endgame.
It's worth putting points into the right places. The Demon Hunter can feel a little slow, but its damage really ramps up quickly at higher levels. Make sure to use their huge attack to pummel your enemies as much as you can.
Over time, we'll add a Diablo Immortal Demon Hunter PVP build to this page as well, and even go over in more detail the endgame equipment and skills to look out for. Until then, check out our Diablo Immortal controller support guide to play on your couch, desk, on wherever else you end up.
