Moogle machinists crafted the first guns, so it is no surprise that moogle fusiliers fire them with the greatest skill.Description
Fusiliers wield guns, giving them the longest-range weapons (alongside Tricksters' cards), as well as safety from being able to attack from such a far distance. Regular attacks can be blocked by terrain obstructions, but Gunmanship abilities always reach their target though can still miss. Gunmanship abilities offer both negative status effects and elemental attacks.
Fusiliers' guns have the longest range making them highly suitable as rearguards. Guns share the longest attack range of 8 panels away with Tricksters' cards. The exception is the Silver Cannon, which has 7 panels range. Fusilier's Concentration support ability allows for increase in attack accuracy and chance to inflict debuff (additional 5% chance for debuffs). This doesn't affect abilities with halved accuracy such as Moogle Charge and Undo, but can still "reduce" the target's Evasion from the calculated hit chance.

Fusilier appears with an Earth-elemental card.
Fusiliers is a name given to various kinds of soldiers; its meaning depends upon on the historical context. While fusilier is derived from the 17th century French word, fusil—meaning a type of flintlock musket. Additionally, in French, the word literally means "fusil wielder" while the word fusiller means "to shoot". An alternate spelling of the word is "Fusileer".
A Fusilier's basic gun, called Goug Mk 29, is a small gun resembling the Smith and Wesson Model 29 and is likely a reference to it.
