Rangers favor battle in the wild, setting traps to harry the enemy.


Ranger is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift available to seeq.


Rangers specialize in using traps and items and have the ability to "reverse" items: normally a Potion would heal, but Rangers can use them to damage enemies. Combined with Item Lore, Rangers can do 400 damage to an enemy with a mirrored X-Potion. Their Awareness ability can detect and avoid traps if one wants to use a Clan Privilege other than Libra. Rangers can equip daggers and bows and have the highest Speed for a seeq job. The Ranger Awareness ability isn't like any other job's abilities; it enables allies to see invisible or hidden things. As they can set and see traps, having them as frontliners to attract melee attackers towards them (as they strategically set up traps) is most effective and unusual among other jobs.

The Sten Needle trap can deal high damage to the enemy and not break the "> 50 damage" or "> 100 damage" laws. An effective way to entice melee enemies to trigger a trap is to place a friendly unit one square away with its back to the trap. The enemy AI favors attacking from behind and melee units will stop on the trap square, trigger the trap, and lose the rest of their turn. Item Lore also allows instant kills, particularly Mirroring a Phoenix Down, or massive negative status effects with a mirrored Remedy, or an X-Potion, dealing 400 damage with near perfect accuracy.

Rangers, alongside with Assassins, have the farthest and highest jump by 4 and 4, respectively. As Rangers are slower than Assassins, they are better to fight using knives instead of bows because of their dominance in HP, Defense and Resistance growth among the double edged-ranged type weapon users like Assassins, and both hume and gria Hunters.



RANGERS use the traps in this extensive arsenal to bring down their mark.


Traps cannot be placed in water, on sloped squares, or on an occupied square. Traps only trigger if a unit stops on it.
