The Ranger Class is a soldier class in XCOM 2.

The primary role of the Ranger Class is aggressive reconnaissance and close quarters combat.

The class functions similar to the Assault Class from XCOM: Enemy Unknown, getting up close to enemies and drawing fire.

Class DescriptionEdit

The Ranger serves as our primary reconnaissance unit, capable of moving independently in concealment while engaging enemies at close range using extensive training in swordsmanship.

–-Soldier Training Selection, XCOM 2

Class WeaponsEdit

The Ranger class can utilize either shotguns or rifles as primary weapons. As a secondary weapon, Rangers use a sword to deal a hard-hitting melee attack. The Alien Hunters DLC introduces single, unique melee weapon called the Hunter's Axe. The Hunter's Axe is automatically upgraded when Arc Blade and Fusion Blade are produced.
