You’ll find all sorts of information here regarding the Ranger Veteran Career (for Bardin Goreksson) in Vermintide 2. The Ranger Veteran is a surprisingly GREAT starter class, who helps carry teams past the awkward early and mid-game. This career is one of the few which helps with your teams’ ammunition management and even “makes” potions!

- Loaded for Battle: Double ammo capacity.
- Fast Hands: Increased reload speed.
