I mostly play platinum and the classes I usually play are within these 3 categories

Snipers, a character with flamer, and AIU/Ghost

Anyone know any other effective classes that's fun to use?

Vanilla Turian Soldier or Quarian Marksman with the Piranha or Hurricane. The Turian is a bit beefier and has stability passives to help out, but Tactical Scan means you absolutely butcher bosses.

I never usually see many Asari Valkyries on Platinum, yet it's one of the most fun and powerful classes I think there is. 6/6/6/0/6 with a Wraith has done me wonders, and if you put on a Cyclonic Mod you're pretty much guaranteed to never die (thanks to the shield restore on AF).

Most captain-level mooks will die with one Warp explosion + Wraith blast, and bosses drop very quickly thanks to the debuffing nature of Warp. Banshees should be your only concern, and as long as you make use of the asari dodge, you can pull off explosions on them very easily - even when they're jumping.

Turian sentinel is awsome. Good for any situation but make sure you bring a good weapon obviously. Iv been having a lot of fun with him and my crusader X :D.
Also human engineer and infiltrator if your comfortable with squishyness.

I've had success with the Asari Huntress. I've only played four matches on Platinum, but the one where I played the Huntress was the only one where I also topped the scoreboard.

Novaguard is crazy fun on Platinum, but you pretty much have to be hosting, and you really need to know what you're doing. It's really overlooked too, since there's still the stigma about bad Novaguards going down five times a wave across the map. It helps if you coordinate your team though; a team full of primers like the Paladin and Justicar is obviously better than a team with, say, TSol and Destroyer.

Human Adept and Human Engineer are great for Platinum. However, the Human Adept doesn't synergize well with Ghosts, so the engineer seems like a better play since most Platinum PuGs will have at least one Ghost.

Yeah, the Vanilla Human Adept, Engineer and Soldier are all great and break the norm a little bit.

In fact, if you feel up to it you could play an Adept or Engineer in general. You don't often see many in Plat, as I think people tend to be a bit scared of the low health and fitness.

Quarian male infiltrator. One of the best classes in the game in my opinion, but I rarely see him used nowadays.
