Ino the Crafty is a Sniper Paragon ace in Valkyria Chronicles 4. He is found on the fourth Expert Skirmish map Struggle on the Bridge.


Ino starts out hiding beneath a grenadier shelter by the NW Imperial camp. Each turn, he will come out of hiding and attack anyone within range.

The path to him is defended by multiple units including a Heavy Gatling, another sniper, and multiple shocktroopers. Due to his low dodge chance, a grenade or flamethrower is sufficient enough to defeat him.

Defeating him drops the ZM SG X2(e), an Imperial anti-tank sniper rifle that acts as a direct upgrade to the ZM SG XD(e) if A Captainless Squad DLC is installed. Compared to the rifle Ino uses, it has reduced accuracy, range, and vsPers but better vsArmor and interception accuracy. In fact, it does as much damage against armored units as a maxed out Elias series mortar.

This can only be used by Sniper Elites, and is one of the few sniper rifles that can intercept against tanks.

  • The ZM SG X2(e) uses the same model as the ZM SG X.
