Nobody Saves the World Ranger guide

by on January 18, 2022

The Ranger is another human form in Nobody Saves the World, but unlike the Guard, the Ranger is purely a ranged attacking option. In fact, she’ll be the first ranged form you unlock, and so is well worth trying out to get a handle on how you can use ranged offense to keep your enemies at arm’s length. It’ll take some practice because the Ranger is more fragile than the Guard, and has less crowd control options, but with the right approach, she can still be pretty deadly. Read on to discover more about the Ranger in Nobody Saves the World.

Nobody Saves the World Ranger guide


As the Ranger, you’ll be firing off arrows at quite a pace to suppress the hordes of enemies looking to take you down. You’ll always fire in the compass direction you are facing so bear that in mind when lining up a shot. Holding down the button to maintain your direction (RB on a controller) helps a lot with other Ranger and other ranged forms unlocked later. Poison tipped is always a good option as it means foes will take extra poison damage without the need to be hit. Arrow Flurry is really quick and powerful but eats your Mana very quickly. Use it when you have an enemy in line you want to take down quickly. And level up Arrow Flurry to cheapen the Mana cost. Dodge is always useful to give you mobility and to prevent you from getting surrounded – something that can prove fatal to ranged forms.
