Other versions

How to get

Two copies of regular and golden Ironforge Rifleman are automatically given after the player completes the Ranked's New player experience system, unlocking Wild and Classic format.

They are uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Previous availability

Prior Year of the Gryphon's rotation on March 30, 2021:

  • Two copies of Ironforge Rifleman were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the mage class.
  • Two Golden copies of Ironforge Rifleman were a reward for raising a mage to levels 55 and 56.

Strategy

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:
