Gunner

Appearances: FF7, FF8, FF12RW, FFX-2, FFTA, FFTA2
Aliases: None

Gunners equip guns (what else?) and do a great job of combining heavy physical attacks with status effects. Like archers, they typically have great accuracy and marksmanship, and offset their weak defense with their distance attacks.
