I actually have 0 trouble with Brutes. They go down pretty quick, and if you get them while they're far enough away they cause no problems.

My only complaint is that I get staggered when I melee them. They have blade armor I guess >_>

In all truthfulness they aren't really a problem, but what pisses me off is their invisible extended biotic slash style claw swipe. You know the one where they do the charging swipe, and even though you're a good 5 yards from where they swiped you still get hit. Also hits you sometimes through cover and walls, I've even had one hit me while I was up on a high ledge and he was down below. I was laughing at how stupid he was for charging until he actually hit me, then I was yelling wtf!

But even with that cheap extended invisible wall piercing, gravity defying range, they really aren't to big an issue.

The death flop. Somebody always kills one right next to me. Stagger and shields gone. Boo.

I hate all of their stagger. Especially the wall-piercing variety. The bumping into them variety is pretty bad too. They're like roadblocks made of 100% stagger.

The ungodly range on that charging swipe. If there isn't room to dodge to the side, there's rarely a means to back away quickly enough.

The swipe of course. It beats out the Pyro flamethrower and Marauder elbow in the Things Which Have a Much Longer Range Than You Might Expect category.

I see dead people.

Agreed. Its especially worse if you aren't the host. I always try to overcompensate my dodging with brutes because sometimes with lag they can hit you much more easily than you would expect.

Overall though, brutes are pretty easy and take out a pretty decent chunk of spawn budget.

Other, their amazing maneuvering around cover while charging. Seriously, zig-zagging through waist high objects and walls to c***-block players.
