i use the reegar

instead of going with the typical vanguard mindset of "charge to regain shields" you can use shield boost instead

I use the piranha with him. Charge>shoot and back off> shield boost/charge.

I use adept much more.

But what I do with the VG is leave the orbs on so your recharge is faster, I never fire them.
And then do what SRR just said. Piranha is good. But I use Mattock alot too. Both have the same weight at X.

Here is a good build. I've used it successfully for five straight platinum games.


Basically, the important thing in this set-up is the rank 6 bonus power on Biotic Charge. Now I wouldn't normally take this evolution on any other class, but why would you need more barriers when you have Shield Boost. A situation where this set-up shines is when a Banshee throws her Warp ball. Right when she throws it, charge her, then if any teammates are nearby and you are lucky, you can Shield Boost immediately after you charge (hence, it's also important to take the radius upgrade on Shield Boost). Now you've just turned an ability that's defensive/offensive and added a support aspect to it as well!

As for Biotic Orbs, take note of when someone primes a power combo. With the orbs, you have four consecutive orbs to detonate. When they run out, just pick a time where the action is slow to re-summon them.
I should go.

Really, I just wouldn't. The Volus Vanguard is entirely inferior to the Adept. He loses a lot of potency without Stasis to set up Biotic Explosions, and he already has Shield Boost to restore shields, so there's no advantage to using Biotic Charge since nothing he has works especially well at close range. Maybe you have the Vanguard but not the Adept, in which case, I would just not Volus at all if I were you.

Never fire your gun on low tier enemies. Save it for bosses. For everyone else: Charge, Defensive Stance, repeat
