A true surviving soldier through and through, the Private 1st Class proves that he can survive the hell that the enemy throws him/her, and can throw it right back. These soldiers are veterans of more than two battles, showing that they have the know how to survive. “Pikes” as they're called, are respected, despite their rank as a private. Only their ability as a combat soldier allows them to achieve the rank of 1st Class. Characters with this rank are paid 150 DA a week.
