Deadliest Fiction Wiki

If it's hostile, you kill it.
— Ranger motto

The Spartan Rangers or the Rangers of the Order are a faction featured in the post-apocalyptic novel Metro 2033 and its video game adaptations. Their origin is unknown, but some of the members may have been soldiers from the Russian Armed Forces or from the Spetsnaz GRU before the 2013 Apocalypse. They may as well have been mercenaries or some sort of other armed forces. However, it is known that they have been operating in the Metro since the Great War of 2013.

The group has always been lead by Miller who is often referred to as The Colonel. The Rangers have also always been the guard and military force of Polis. However, they also act independently.

Rangers seem to be greatly feared by the bandits, Reds, and Nazis alike. In the level "Dry", a conversation between a few bandits near the rails can be heard. One bandit mentions how alone Ranger single-handedly took out large groups of men and how nothing in the tunnels can stop them. The bandit also mentioned that they might not even be human because of their fighting skills. Ironically, upon questioning the bandit reveals the group was killed by a "lone Ranger" outside Riga station - the same bandit outpost taken down by Artyom when he was traveling with Bourbon.

Battle vs. Tekken Force (by UnduhTakuh)[]

No battle was written.


Expert's Opinion[]

The Spartan Rangers have better both close and long range. And also, they are most brutal units. Even though Tekkens deal with it, a lone Ranger can take them out.

One Ranger, holding a Volt Driver, asks in russian, "How are they breathing up here?" A second Ranger, armed with a Bastard, answers "It's probably because of all the tar in there lungs." , pointing at the Smokers cancer sticks. Meanwhile, a Smoker operating a M2 Aircraft Quad Mount sees the Rangers and starts fireing down on them. "Take cover!" shouts the Ranger leader, armed with a Kalash 2012. The Rangers escape instant death, but the Volt Driver Ranger is hit in the leg. He responds by hitting the Smoker right between the eyes.

Battle vs Super Mutants (by AlsoPbGoat)[]

to be written

Expert's Opinion[]

While the Super Mutants had much greater durability and arguably the most devastating weapon on the battlefield, it was ultimately the Spartan Rangers' greater intelligence and use of tactics that let them eventually whittle down their superhuman enemy and win the day.
