Calavera the Keen is a Scout Paragon ace in Valkyria Chronicles 4. He is found in the first Expert Skirmish map Hafen Escort.


Calavera is hidden inside a building north of the east Imperial camp past the second barricade (This is also where a Medium tank was hiding in the story version of this map). The barricade will have to be destroyed to get to him as he will not take any action to indicate his presence. This can easily be done by using any sort of explosive, though infantry may need to be wary of the ammo removing debuff trooper defending the camp.

Once he's revealed, he can and will take multiple actions against anyone within his attack range.

Due to his dodge chance, it's highly suggested to have someone turn him around in order for another unit to get the surprise attack on him.

Defeating him drops the ZM Kar X(e) rifle, a short ranged rifle with mediocre vsPerson power but high vsArmor. It has nearly half the range compared to the rifle he uses, worse accuracy, less vsPersonnel, but two more shots and high vsArmor. This effectively allows a scout or engineer to destroy AT Cannons and Gatling Turrets with ease, along with severely damaging or destroying tanks if they can hit the radiator.

As stated before, this does come with the caveat of short range, requiring the unit to get close to their target.
