"Hunters are at their finest when fighting monsters and other beasts of the wild."

Hunter is a Job class in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift that utilizes great bows in combat, similar to the Viera Sniper class. It is available to Humes and Gria. The Job specializes in fighting monsters.

Hunters are excellent marksmen whose weak point is their low defense. They have one of the strongest attacks in the game, Ultima Shot, which deals triple damage. The high 32 MP cost means that Hunters will have to wait four turns before using Ultima Shot, so one strategy is to pair them with something that can restore MP, such as the Bangaa Cannoneer and Moogle Flintlock Jobs. Another strategy to speed up the wait for "Ultima Shot" is to use Clan Privileges such as "MP Channeling" (Units gain 20 MP each turn, double the normal amount) or "MP Efficiency" (MP costs cut in half). Both of these will allow the use of Ultima Shot in two turns. Even better, if "Halve MP" is used as the Hunter's passive ability alongside these Clan Privileges he or she will be able to use Ultima Shot constantly. It would only cost 8 MP. Oddly enough, its ability Sidewinder does not count as a long-ranged weapon attack, and therefore bypasses the law against long range weapons.

Hunters have lost their Capture skill — it was rendered useless by the removal of the Morpher Job.
