Re: I need help with Musketeer Strategy on Musketeer.
Farm the tower of Moo Manchu and get the nefarious blaster like I have which is extremely better then the swivel gun, and aswell I use Louis (the crab guy) over Duck Holiday for the double bomb spam strategy.
Sorry for the very long cramped wall of text. I hope you can help me. I really want the Spring PVP Weapon, but time is running out...

I think it's the lack of protection that's not winning here. One fort is not enough to really survive against a nausica. I recommend the southern cross gem and the stormzilla's egg, and replace the ki-rins jade for sprocket key. This will give you a purge to defeat nausica rushes and 2 forts. Other then that, your gear seems to be good.
For companions, I recommend for scratch Spirited 4, Rough 4, Accurate 4, and Tough 4, since you're lacking 15% chance to hit, and scratch really isn't going to dodge even with dodgy 4. Armored is pretty useless when it's so low.
For Chantal, Overwatch 3 and drop the quick adjust or one rank of double tap. And for talents, I suggest Agile 4, Tough 4, Rough 4, and Accurate 4, because like Scratch, unless you get really lucky, chances are, Chantal isn't going to dodge. (Although against scorpions, I suggest you drop the Quick Adjust.)
If you're using duck to counter nausica, then I suggest True grit 3 and Burst 2 with Double Tap. Armored 4 I guess would be ok in this sense, but remember that a fort will already protect duck a lot, especially if you're using grit 3.
Another great companion to counter nausica would be ratbeard instead of duck, who is also very reliable against bucklers and bucks, with Cheap Shot 3, Hold the line 2, and First Strike 3. Slap on a fort, and he'll naturally be ready to counter nausica, with his reduce, bulk, and epics.
Against nef staff, you can't really do much except for trick shots, but normally double tap and burst chains should do the trick against scorpions, as your companions (except scratch) will hardly miss them.
