Gunner Class Names?

Spamalot

I'm trying to make some custom class names for my players to progress through as they level. So far I have Gunner -> Ranger -> Sharpshooter. But I need one more name after that for the final upgrade of the Gunner class.

Can anyone suggest a name that is (preferably) gender-neutral and deals with more than just firearms (such as grenades, rockets, artillery). Any input is helpful as I'm also not sure if I have the class ranks in the correct order.

Is "marksman" too gendered for you? I guess "sniper" and "gunslinger" are too narrow. Are "crack shot" and "deadeye" too informal? Is "gunman" too generic?

Yeah a bit, I'm not totally against just using Marksman interchangeably with Markswoman but I'd prefer something a little different.

Grenadier? Tirador? Hellfire?

As for the others, I was hoping for a name that could hint towards the class now combining guns with explosives/artillery.

That's on the right track.

Grenadier does incorporate explosives but it seems a lil too narrow, hellfire wouldn't really work with the setting very well, could you tell me about Tirador all I'm finding is that it's Spanish for shooter.

You're speaking my language!

Perhaps, but I was hoping for something a little different. I'm not trying to be frustrating, sorry.

Basically it's that, but a) exotic sounding and b) not super obviously gendered.

What's the setting?

grenadier (from French, derived from the word grenade[1]) was originally a specialized soldier, first established as a distinct role in the mid-to-late 17th century, for the throwing of grenades and sometimes assault operations. At that time grenadiers were chosen from the strongest and largest soldiers. By the 18th century, dedicated grenade throwing of this sort was no longer relevant, but grenadiers were still chosen for being the most physically powerful soldiers and would lead assaults in the field of battle.
Seems like a pretty good pick honestly

Frontliner? Specialist?
Operator? Demolisher?
Devastator? Deadeye?
Soldier? Quickdraw?
Arsenal? Commando?

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freischütz
A Freischütz ("freeshooter"),[1] in German folklore, is a marksman who, by a contract with the devil, has obtained a certain number of bullets destined to hit without fail whatever object he wishes.

Tanegashima or Huolong-jin might work for a weeby setting.

Somewhere between high and low fantasy, main idea is that the high fantasy comes from all the monsters and magic but the low fantasy is from ingenuity and inventions.

Not OP but that sounds like a branching tree from Gunner, specialising more in gritty pistol based fighting, rather than the Ranger -> Sharpshooter path relying more on positioning and tactics.

That's pretty interesting and could tie into my setting somewhat.

Yeah, the basic idea is that each rank increase the range of effectiveness and overall destruction of the Gunner, as well as the weapons they are trained in.

Stormtrooper might have worked, but I'm aiming for more of a long ranged sort of class with this rather than a frontliner.

What is the setting? What kinds of firearms and general tactics are we looking at being used

Not quite modern... probably between 1900-1920 in terms of technology, but also with a splash of high magic.

So basically bolt action rifles, team operated machine guns, and some experimental submachine guns?

Hold up, now you're contradicting yourself, you have to be basically within a few dozen meters to use grenades to any effect.

Although a little generic, and being used to describe other things, infantry might work.

They are able to use grenades but it's more focused on the battlefield control aspect. They whittle down with mobile artillery (magic) and can hold their own reasonably well if the enemy gets too close. At it's core though they're not supposed to get too close to enemies as they are fragile.

Shocktrooper is a little too close-ranged/assault for my taste. Though Lancer is ambiguous enough that I might be able to fluff it.

So far, it's a toss up between Freeshooter, Dragoon, or Lancer.

It's an actual military rank (equivalent to corporal) that is senior to a Gunner.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the "man" part of "marksman" is not pronounced like "man" but rather like "min" (and that "markswoman" is all kinds of awkward), but I'd apply "marksman" to a woman as well as a man.

It is unlikely that there would be a specific special name for each grade if there were a bunch of grades.

Likely instead you would have an entry rank, followed by name 'first class' 'second class' 'third class', followed by a top score rank.

So it might be something like
Marksman
Grenadier First Class
Grenadier Second Class
Grenadier Third Class
Gunner

Unless I am missing something, I would not use 'Ranger'. That has a traditional commando or patrol meaning to it.

Marksman should be seen as gender neutral. Females are 'marksman'. The term 'markswoman' is not used.
