Trickshooter is a mechanically demanding class that relies on hitting Trickshot after making it bounce off a wall. Trickshot is a piercing shot with high base damage, so it's strong during the early game even without bounces. However, it scales slowly with the Trickshooter's power, which makes it weak during later parts of the match without being strengthened by bounces.
The combo of Cryomancer's Ice Wall and Trickshooter's Trickshot is a well-known meme, where Ice Wall is used bounce the Trickshot for extra damage. It sounds strong on paper, but it requires pitch-perfect accuracy and can't be used in every situation. As such, it's usually not worth picking the two classes together just for this combo.
In the Novel

He went the extra mile when with the Ice Wall + Trickshot combo by firing Trickshot at a wall, making it bounce toward the ice wall and finally bounce toward the target, dealing triple damage.
In addition, Lars is capable of quickly chaining multiple Trickslides in a row during Trickshow while firing fast and accurate Trickshots. Taison always finds himself helpless fighting 1v1 against Lars's Trickshow and Lars can even hold his ground against multiple opponents at once during Trickshow.
