The Heavy Scout is a 3rd-tier class introduced in Valkyria Chronicles 2. They are part of the Scout Class Tree and can be promoted from Scout Veterans. Heavy scouts use advanced rifles equipped with grenade launchers instead of normal rifles.
Compared to other scout classes, heavy scouts have the best combat ability. They have relatively high HP, their advanced rifles can fire 7 shots instead of 5 and they can launch grenades over great distance. However, having reduced AP makes them much less useful in-game as their combat role has already been filled by much better classes such as Shocktrooper or Mortarer.
