Does a Batarian soldier melee build work on gold?

it used to be awesome for me

but one day, my ballistic blades stopped staggering phantoms 100% of the time and when i went in to punch, I would get a love tap

Haha. Noticed my Batarian is currently not specced as I am advertising him to everyone. Still, I stand by what I recommended since it was just a change from Blade Armor to Fitness. Haven't counted which one gives you more shields on a basic Batarian but it sure would have been better to have 10% DR for my Cyclonic Batarian.

Hey, I just got a brawler. Give me a build for that

I tend to only run 3 points in Blade Armor on the soldier, maxing fitness and then having 25% DR seems to be more effective to me than ignoring it for 40%

Here's my melee build, if you're still curious.

With Armor-Piercing Ammo. You could change rank 4 on Batarian Enforcer to Weapon Damage, as you will still hit 1000 Newtons on Charge (which stuns Phantoms), but this is what I currently use. With this, Charge and hold melee before you actually reach your target and you will be Falcon Pawnching right out the gate, complete with melee lock-on. If Phantoms aren't primed for their instakill, this will kill a Phantom on Gold with a single Charge -> Heavy Melee, guaranteed. However, they can and will interrupt your heavy melee (even if it's about to split their head open), so do be careful. Besides that, I believe it one-shots every foot soldier unit except Geth Pyros, Dragoons, and Guardians, and I'm not entirely sure about Dragoons. Go experiment!

As always, be extremely careful when charging into groups of Phantoms.

Also to remember: Power Amplifier works on Ballistic Blades. Reason why my Batarian Soldier traded in his Graal Spike Thrower for a Talon.
