|“||His arm-mounted weapon has been modified to accommodate a body-shredding Ion Ripper.||”|
—The Reckoning Manual
The Ripper Guard is encountered only in The Reckoning, and is equipped with an Ion Ripper.
This weapon is known for its ricochet shots, so keep in mind that taking cover will not always save you. Dispatch them as quickly as you can.
- Always keep in mind that this guard's shots can ricochet and can hit you even if you took cover. Keep an eye on their trajectories and try to take out the enemy quickly.
- He fires 3 shots ("boomerangs") in a row inflicting 15hp (5hp per "boomerang") damage to an armored player.
- Remember that Ripper Guard is still a guard and it has only a bit more health than a Machine Gun Guard, so you can use the Shotgun, Machine Gun, Chain Gun or even a Blaster to kill him quickly. If there is a bigger group of these, you can use Super Shotgun, Grenade Launcher, Phalanx Particle Cannon or just every other weapon to kill them.
