One of the easiest classes to play and one of the better classes in the game, albeit a bit simple.

This probably comes as no surprise to most of you, but I had only ever used him for messing around with Lash or hatesurfing.

He absolutely destroys Cerberus and Geth. Bit more tricky against Reapers and Collectors.
Hey, everyone! This store discriminates against the poor!

I also tried it for the first time yesterday. Beast

It's only at level 15 and he's already ridiculous

To be honest, he's one of my favorite characters to play on Gold now. Though before I go into Quick Match I always pick my Geth Trooper for in case I get dropped into a game in progress. However, if I get dropped into a lobby I immediately switch to the Batarian Vanguard.

I really wanted to max out lash to take out shielded goons with it but I'm skipping it for now and making everything else. Going pure melee

That is how I did it and it is amazing. I have an Assault Rifle Omni-Blade, then I use Juggernaut Shield V as well as a Strength Enhancer and on Gold I can usually one-shot all of the smaller enemies.

the only problem with reapers is Banshees, and the Brute have blade armor that stops me from punching them all the time.

I love this class because any enemy that is your size or smaller you can just charge/HM and its over. He should have been called the Batarian Bully

I just got him today and this is the way to go I think. I actually really like lash on the Cerberus agents but this guy just needs a shotgun and his fist

How do you all suggest building him out? I haven't tried him much yet but I wasn't too impressed when I did. Haven't tried a HM build yet though.
There's really nothing to say.

I played Gold/Reaper/Rio, went down once, and scored 206k or something without any equipment.
I haven't tried him vs. Geth, but IIRC Batarians are not stagger-immune so I'm guessing it would be annoying.

I opted for a Charge/Lash/Reegar build, only meleeing for DR or when out of ammo. Armor is a tad slow to kill, but that's the only hitch.

That's what I'm using atm. I prefer the Kroguard for a melee build.
