The bow and arrow is a weapon that has been around for as long as people have learned to make. Aside from magic users, being an archer is the only way a party can do ranged damage. Having a well-balanced party for melee and ranged attacks is paramount if you’re playing Baldur’s Gate 3 in tactician mode. Being an archer is not tied to a certain class, as long as you meet the required stats players can equip just about any weapon. However, if you’re looking to do ranged physical damage, some classes are more advantageous than others. For this reason, we are going to disarm some traps and take a look at the best class to archer in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3).
Best class for Archer in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3)
Now, before people go looking for the Archer class while casting your character, there are some things you need to know. Namely the fact that the archer isn’t technically a class in BG3, at least not by that name. If you are looking to become an archer, you will want to choose the Ranger class. In terms of stats, Rangers should focus primarily on Dexterity, with a secondary focus on Wisdom. This class will primarily focus on ranged damage, as well as focus for enemy debuffs. Becoming a Ranger isn’t the only effective way to be an Archer.

There is another class that is proficient in simple ranged weapons as well as hand crossbows. Players should go for the Bard class, for a mix of ranged attacks and party buffs. Bards can be versatile, allowing them to use melee weapons as well as ranged weapons. Even so, if your party is in desperate need of a healer as well as some extra ranged attacks, Bard is your best bet. You’ll also receive a decent amount of Bard-exclusive Cantrips. These skills aim to give advantages to your party, while ensuring that enemies are at the greatest disadvantage. And you play a little tune for your party while dancing on the corpses of your enemies. What’s better than that?
