The Rifle Grunt is the most common enemy when Sean is not in trouble. Typically they are found patrolling the streets or stationed at Freeplay targets watching the city. They do not pack much firepower, nor are they very accurate, but their real danger comes when they blow their whistle and call for backup. It is easy to keep out of their sight on rooftops or alley ways and are easily fooled by disguises, unlike the Generals.
The Rifle grunt is also spawned commonly in the Sturmwagen, the Nazi's main patrol vehicle.
