Moogle machinists crafted the first guns, so it is no surprise that moogle fusiliers fire them with the greatest skill.
Fusilier is a returning job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, exclusive to moogles. This job is available after mastering one Animist A-ability. They wield guns, giving them the game's 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 negate that and always reach their target though the attacks can still miss. Gunmanship abilities offer both negative status effects and elemental attacks.
The Moogle Knight's ability Ultima Charge can be used at range by a Fusilier, making a Fusilier/Moogle Knight an extremely potent combo, abilities such as Moogle Rush also works at long range with this job.
To unlock the Fusilier, the player must complete "The Goug Consortium" mission. To use the job a character must master one Animist A-Ability.

- Fusiliers guns have the longest range for any ranged weapons, making them highly suitable as rearguards. Guns share the longest attack range of 8 panels away with Tricksters' cards. The only exception is the Silver Cannon, which only has 7 panels range.
- Fusilier's Concentratation 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. However, it 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 can 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.
