- "An underground street racing champion, Ronin's always up for some action."
— In-game Description
Ronin is a Duelist, a Rogue Company member that wins combat engagements and forces trades with the enemy team. She carries a ballistic knife that can be thrown or be used as a melee weapon. Her passive ability allows her to be hidden from mini maps on the enemy team. Ronin is the most tactical Rogue and can be very creative with her arsenal. Ronin is good from close to mid range and can be difficult to play against when she understands the playing field.
For years, Ronin dominated the Tokyo Underground Street Racing scene, rebelling from the control of her wealthy family. Now she makes her mark as one of Rogue Company's most famous operators.
Ronin is competitive, energetic, friendly, and can be teasing at times.

Spawning in Ship
Eliminating an Enemy
Strengths and Weaknesses
- Weapons- The KA-30 is a well balanced assault rifle with decent range, ammo, damage, accuracy, etc. The SL-C has the second fastest fire rate (beaten by the Objection) and the second fastest reload time (beaten by the LMP-X and the 24S). The Spitfire pistol has the fastest rate of fire (due to it being a rapid firing pistol).
- Abilities- Ronin's Ballistic Knife can be used as melee weapon or can be used a trap. She can place it on walls, on the ground, crates, cars, bombs, objectives, and so much more. If an enemy passes by it, it will explode and down the them. Ronin can also throw the Ballistic Knife, downing any enemy it hits. The Ballistic Knife does 100 damage, so enemy must equip the Tenacity perk in order to survive a hit from the Ballistic Knife. If they combine the Headstrong perk and the Tenacity perk, they will most definitely survive an explosion from the Ballistic Knife. But their health will be low enough for someone to finish them off. Additionally, she can place it and shoot the knife to hit near by enemies that aren't close enough to set it off. Ronin's passive ability allows her to be hidden on enemy mini maps. Ronin can sneak up on enemies because she will not be visible on the mini map, allowing her to attack without the concern of being noticed.
- Gadgets- The smoke grenade can be upgraded to slow enemy movement if they are in the smoke. The second upgraded allows Dahlia to carry an extra smoke grenade. The grenade can be upgraded to increase its explosion radius. Its damage can be upgraded to 100 to 125.
- Weapons- The KA-30 has the second lowest range, so it is not recommended to use it at a very far distance. The SL-C has the second least damage, second least range and the worst handling of other SMGs available in the game. Its rate of fire is what makes up for the other flaws of this weapon. The Spitfire pistol deals the least damage and travels the least distance compared to other pistols.
- Abilities- The Ballistic Knife has a blinking affect that shows allies or enemies that it is there. This is easily noticeable by enemies, making it easy for them to avoid it. Even if she cannot be seen on the mini map, Ronin can still be seen from abilities or gadgets that can reveal enemies. Such as Nano Smoke, Tracker Rounds, Target Finder, and Sticky Sensors.
- Gadgets- The grenade will not completely deplete the enemy's health if they equip the Tenacity perk, unless it’s upgraded.
Tips and Tricks
- You can place the Ballistic Knife on paths that enemies may travel through.
- You can sneak behind an enemy using her passive ability and attack them.
- You have an option to throw two melee weapons, so you can possibly down two enemies very quickly.
- Place the Ballistic Knife on the bomb or an objective. If an enemy tries to disarm the bomb or hack the objective, the Ballistic Knife will explode and down them.
