Sharpshooter + Point blank shot
I'm sorry if it was already asked/answered somewhere but i failed to find anything about it.

Point blank shot makes you to score a 100% Critical Hit when shooting point blank and Sharpshooter calculates your shot as if you were 1 hex closer to a target. So if you are standing 1 hex away from your target will your shot be considered a poit black in terms of the other perk?

Only one way to find out!

The problem is these perks are nearly useless solely and I'm not far from the game's start, so there's no way to pick both at a time for testing

Nope, I have been using a shooter with both those skills and they do not synergise.

wish there was a +% to hit boost (other than that +1 range closer perk), im almost thinking of getting a scout instead of a hunter bc of the misses haha

I never use hunters in battles because of the annoying miss chance, i use only soldiers with a medic support and sometimes priest support, soldiers can switch to long range weapons and they can become really strong with good equipement.

I absolutely hated Hunters in combat, too.

But I hear Point Blank Shot and Quick Shots do work together. Basically, you purposefully let your Hunter get hit by an attack of opportunity in exchange for automatically critting your target *twice* in one round.

Sounds risky, and I think I'd rather just use Soldiers, but that would make those Hunters much less awful.

PBS is a sure-fire way to get 80-100 (minus armor) early on. It's SUPPOSED to have a few downsides. Hunters more than any other character benefit from getting veteran status for this baby alone. Also you could always let a high armor (read - soldier) character eat an enemies AoO if you're worried.
