Ranger is a returning class in Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis.

Class Weapon Overview

Rifle

A heavy-duty rifle loaded with bullets. Possesses a high rate of attack as well as extreme precision. Its Photon Arts augment its abilities, enabling it to adapt to many battlefield situations.

Using Sliding Shot to move to the left

The Sliding Shot Weapon Action performs an evasive slide forward, backwards, or to the sides while shooting at the same time. This allows the Ranger to keep their distance from an enemy to avoid damage as well as shoot at the same time.

Rifle Mechanics

  • Automatic Normal Fire(?): By holding down the Normal attack button, the Rifle will fire a continuous stream of bullets that restore PP when they hit an enemy. While firing in midair, you will slowly descend.
  • Rifle Distance Snipe(?): By staying a certain distance away from the target, Rifle attacks gain additional damage. Your lock-on cursor changes to a orange colour, and a shine effect is added to bullet impacts when this is active.
