"Specialists in forest survival. Their deadly arrows and extraordinary speed can save the party."
Survivalist description, Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight


True masters of the labyrinth, these quick-footed bowmen strike fear into their foes' hearts with dead-on accuracy.

The Survivalist (レンジャー Ranger in the Japanese version) is an expert at forest survival, allowing them to navigate the Labyrinth with ease. With their quick hands and quicker wits, they're a force to be reckoned with, picking off their targets one-by-one with deadly precision, destroying their capabilities in the process. Despite their weak defense, their quick reflexes make them a force to be reckoned with on either line of battle.
