Elite Gunner does not have high firepower, and still, it should not be underestimated. Focused fire tanks or Machine Gun branch is the best for killing this boss, as they will be able to outgun it. Drones are not helpful as they will die before reaching the boss. As a bullet tank, you should move in a left-right pattern, in order to trick the boss into missing more. Meanwhile, shoot at the boss, and it will die quickly.
When fighting Elite Gunner, try to move away from it slightly. If you will not, pillboxes may start to protect the boss more, and make the progress slightly harder. Pillboxes have decent speed, but they are possible to dodge, especially if you see whether or not they are going in your direction.
