Many, many possibilities, but I'll try to hit the biggies...

First, make sure you have as many 3 and 4 stat modded clothing items as you can wear. Rings, necklaces, gloves, undershirt, etc - they all add up. Ideally, I go for con and stam mods (priority on stam for me, since I run out quickly).

Next, if you're factioned, keep tabs on when your side has a base under their control. Even the standard Stim-A's are useful, since that's a heal you can use while waiting for yours to recharge (small as that heal may be).

Third, buff, buff, buff!!! Elder buff, food, spice, and even get a medic buff if you know a medic that's not busy. The buff crystals can help too, but not if you do a lot of missions consecutively.

Fourth, if your target is wearing recon armor, consider using a Nym's. The kinetic dmg it puts out will make up for the the lower DPS (especially if they have energy layered recon - like 3000 kinetic resist).

These are the basics, regardless of your expertise temp. There are a LOT of different ideas on expertise - I have two BH's that I run different combos on, and I find I have a similar ratio of kills/losses on both. Personally, I think the assault armor bonuses and "shields" ability are mandatory for a good pvp BH - the rest is up to what works for you.

As for the actual fight, first, I NEVER have a BH-certed weapon equipped when I'm hunting my mark (ala GLC) - sometimes you can take your mark by surprise. I have my buffs and weapons on a seperate toolbar, and hit them all right before initiating the fight. I open with a snare and a bleed trap, then fall back and spam specials. And the bleed trap DOT is your best friend as a BH.

And lastly... don't use shields unless you're about to die. It can help you escape the fight and come back when your heal timer has reset. :D

That's all I can think of right now. I'm sure others here can give you their take on being a good BH.

Think ill be changing my template back to carbines and protection stats, instead of debuffs and rifle.

Ive not been having much luck with the GLC (Energy).

I always make sure I have those GCW base stims now. As that extra heal helps.

The key to success is not to rush up and start shooting your mark. You are the hunter, YOU choose the time and place of the battle. You should wait until your mark is low on health, engaged in PvP with someone else, AFK, occupied doing something etc.

Your job is not to go toe-to-toe with the mark, your job is to kill him/her/it and collect the bounty.

Indeed. That is the benefit of the Alpha strike (first strike).

I usually wait until they are fighting, questing, dungeons, cloning, afk, getting ID, using bazaar or other.

I know with my Jedi, im always on the lookout for BH.

Heading straight to your target and sarting to fire is like saying "Hi im a BH and here to kill you, get ready"

/agree

If my mark is in an NPC city, I'll wait by the ship terms - even if they're right outside the starport. At some point, they'll either go LD or come back inside to leave, which is when I attack.

There is nothing better than hate tells from someone you ganked while they had their ship menu up, lol. Well... not quite as good as ganking a jedi pre-NGE when they were in your spin group, lol, but close.

I posted a template in the "Ask a pro" section that might interest you. Unfortunately the proton carb is now a useless level 80 weapon. As we are all level 90s.

I used to be terrible as well. Here are a few things you can use.
1. Get a Gaurdian Blaster fist.
2. Wait for the right time to strike, For Jedi its right after they use their force run. For others, just hit them when they least expect it.
3. If they gain ground on you and want to stand toe to toe, use your blaster fist and drop a razor trap. Dont forget to use cripple and ambush since you can do them with a melee weapon.
4. put 3 weapons in your toolbar. A GLC, A GBF and a Kinetic Ranged weapon.
5. Look at their armor. If they have Recon, you might as well use your kinetic rifle. If they are wearing assault or battle, use a GLc.
6. Buff every type you can. Mustafar injector, thakatillo food, spice if you have it, favor of the elders...anything you can get your hands on. this could be the difference.
7. Have a plan. once you learn your template and profession, you can start going in gunz ablazing. until then, use your head.

They will likely do a pass on BH soon. As its turned into a melee profession.
