Archers stand out of harm's way, raining arrows upon their foes from afar.
The Archer job class is available to humes and viera in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift who deal long-range attacks via bows. They are useful units that allow the player to inflict damage on the first turn. Their Focus ability prepares a powerful attack, while several other abilities inflict status effects upon enemies.
A useful ability against undead is Burial, which removes undead from battle entirely and thereby prevents their resurrection. An Archer works best with a strong melee unit acting as a protective shield to stop incoming enemies. By mastering three Archer A-abilities, humes can become Hunters, while viera can become Snipers with two Archer A-abilities.
