Does a Batarian soldier melee build work on gold?

se blades to stagger, then run up and melee

How do you guys build him?

Wouldn't solo with it but I guess it might work. It would probably be a good idea to invest in DR in the armor even if you are going for melee.

Use Bat vanguard instead tc. So much better. He's great on Gold. Add a omniblade to your AR or shotgun. Smack the crap out of everyone.

If I were to use a melee batarian it would be the vanguard.

For the soldier I always have too much fun burning, impaling, and exploding everything.

vanguard is better for melee. Especially since lash lets him get close to enemies you normally dont want to melee, like phantoms... assuming you can bypass their energy fields

Yes, this is a signature.

Still works a little bit. You can use it on smaller enemies and the like, but you have to be a little careful since you have no way to restore your shields right away.

Wouldnt you prefer a batarian brawler melee build? or a batarian sentinel melee build?

Most probably haven't tried this much so I doubt there are many established builds. Melee damage in everything might not be so important when you will blast enemies first with Blades, then a punch and after that a shotgun blast if necessary.

Spawn-nuking and bosses with your grenades, spec your armor for DR, and GET EXPLOSIVE BLADES.

Also, any good shotgun can work well, since 2 of his powers are only good for close range anyway.

Final build should be 6/6/6/6/0.
