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 [[Taunt]]s. 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]].

* [[Disciple of C'Thun]] and [[Spring Rocket]] have 1 less Health, but deals 1 extra damage and can buff [[C'Thun]] and has the [[Mech]] tag, respectively.
