Ironforge Rifleman is a neutral minion card, from the Basic set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of Ironforge Rifleman are automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the mage class.

Two Golden copies of Ironforge Rifleman are a reward for raising a mage to levels 55 and 56.

Ironforge Rifleman is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The main strength of Ironforge Rifleman lies in its Battlecry, which can be used to deal a single point of damage to any character. This is particularly useful for picking off low-health minions without taking damage, removing Divine Shield, and for attacking targets behind Taunts. It can also be useful for triggering Enrage effects on the player's own minions. When played against a 1 health minion, Ironforge Rifleman's Battlecry can allow him trade for at least 2 cards, generating card advantage.

Later expansions have rendered Ironforge Rifleman too inefficient to use outside of Arena and has seen better replacements:
