Looking for the best Diablo 3 Demon Hunter builds coming into this season? Here is everything you need to know to master Demon Hunter and battle through hell and back.

Demon Hunter in Diablo 3 offers players a pure adrenaline rush, with a kit that shows off plenty of ranged combat options, including dual-wielded crossbows, magic, and traps.

The class allows players to weave together movement and waves of arrows, shredding through tons of enemies quickly as Demon Hunter can dash into enemy backlines with ease, and in many ways feels like a mix between two Diablo 2 classes – the Amazon and the Assassin.


So, here’s why you should pick Demon Hunter going into this season, as well as a rundown of their best builds.

Is the Demon Hunter for me?

For players who enjoy lots of dashes and shredding through enemies with waves of arrows, the Demon Hunter is for you. Demon Hunter is a ranged class, and mostly deals physical damage. The class brings the ability to dash around maps using multiple abilities, reigning arrows on foes clearing the entire screen’s worth of enemies.

If you enjoy dealing high amounts of damage, at a rapid pace far away from your enemies, Demon Hunter might be the class for you. It isn’t a tank class, so if you are looking to soak up a lot of damage, other classes you might enjoy include Barbarian or Crusader.


Is the Demon Hunter good in Diablo 3 Season 24?

Demon Hunter happens to be quite good in Season 24 of Diablo 3. One look at’s tier list shows that Demon Hunter is placed in S-tier, having two different builds in the highest-ranked tier, showing just how strong Demon Hunter is right now.

While some don’t play with a follower, they can help make or break your gameplay. Changes from Diablo 3’s Season 23 allowed you to customize their armor alongside their weapons, so now they make an impact.

We recommend bringing along the Scoundrel, as the Scoundrel also relies on the Dexterity stat that Demon Hunter benefits from.
