Rangers are mostly known for their ability to equip various ranged weapons to attack, primarily bows. Their most consistent special ability is called Barrage or Rapid Fire. With this ability, the Ranger can attack multiple times (generally, but not always, four times) in a single turn. They also have the ability Aim, which increases their damage and ensures a successful hit.
In some games, Rangers can cast some basic White Magic. Because they wield bows, Rangers are adept at fighting flying and bird-type enemies, which take additional damage from arrows and have their high evasion nullified by the Ranger's high Accuracy. Rangers overlap somewhat with Archers, but are more physically oriented while Archers rely on status attacks. The Archer class is mostly exclusive to games set in Ivalice, while with the exception of Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, Rangers do not appear.
