The Rifleman is a class which Ghost Recon operators can act as.
The Rifleman is the basic infantry soldier. They are the backbone of any Infantry Squad and, as the US Army calls them, the "Queens of Battle". They are proficient in CQB, Hand to Hand combat and the use and maintenance of various weapons and equipment. In combat, it is the Infantrymen that close in and kill the enemy.
Extra body armor allows the rifleman to take more hits to the torso, and Assault Rifles excel at all but the most extreme ranges. They also have access to Light Machine Guns (LMGs) to suppress enemies and allow teammates to advance. This makes for a versatile class that can absorb and inflict heavy punishment.
- The Rifleman is similar to the Assault Class available in Ghost Recon Online and Ghost Recon Commander.
