A hunter who trails rare monsters, employing Huntcraft skills to overcome them.Description
Game Hunter is a job class in Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions for Luso that focuses on hunting monsters. Though the Game Hunter specializes in poaching, Luso resented this activity in a series of subquests in his original appearance as the protagonist of Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift.

The Game Hunter is essentially a copy of Ramza's Squire job, down the stats and equipment options, but with an innate ability to poach monsters. It has all the same abilities, including being able to learn Ultima when hit by it.
Luso's Huntcraft has powerful buffs that can be bestowed upon other units, such as Tailwind and Steel, which increase Speed and Bravery, respectively. This solidifies the Game Hunter as a potent offensive support unit that can slowly empower his team and himself over the course of the battle, since those attribute buffs last until the fight is over. Shout is useful to quickly rack-up attributes while approaching enemies in large maps, and can also be used for JP and EXP grinding.
Luso must be hit by Ultima while he is a Game Hunter to learn it, much like Ramza's Squire. The only characters who can cast Ultima are Celia, Lettie, Ultima Demons, and Ramza (after he learns from those enemies). To quickly learn Ultima, it is recommended to equip items that prevent Stop and Charm, and to keep distance from Celia and Lettie.
A game hunter is someone who partakes of big-game hunting, the hunting of large game. The term is historically associated with the hunting of Africa's big five game (lion, African elephant, Cape Buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros), and with tigers and rhinos on the Indian subcontinent.
