I’ve never played as a vanguard personally mostly because i perfer keeping my enemies at a distance normally anyway.generally if I want to play around as a biotic i normally go adept but have been considering going through as a vanguard for my next playthrough and am already looking forward to it. Any self respecting Vanguard wouldn’t even consider putting a single point into Pull. (He died there for me, wrong decision and stuff), Jack is cool too, but you run into the same problem as you do with Miranda. Cloak is so incredibly awesome. Sticky is better than frag, cloak is just as good as rush and who needs ammo powers? It isn’t hard to find, it’s just that snipers have a low amount of ammo. the pc version must be radically different. Tutorials are usually accessible to help simplify the procedure. i said my first playthrough was with adept and it was the hardest so far. It’s just on my Desktop for now.

Honestly, I could make a real case for any of the 6 classes in Mass Effect 2 as being the best, but after playing as all 6 of them my clear favorite is the Infiltrator. forgot to include that one, did ya? I agree with almost all of what you said, though I prefer to upgrade to Incineration Blast and Heavy Warp Ammo. But i can’t choose between tech and biotic so i choose sentinel for the mix and armor. 22 comments.

Less health but more buffs. Thanks dude, I started a new game and I chose vangaurd because I normally choose soilder. Though after looking at all the powers other classes have, I’ll have to give them all a shot:P, When u said that the Infiltrator is “not that good” I realised that you dont know anything about the game, lol. I’m amazed to see that this comment is still getting replies after almost a year. You would have to start over from scratch.

You could … when do you get that shotgun? I love ME2, but the skill system is way too simplified in that part of the trilogy. @xPAYASO323x i never said i was gonna play as adept. You simply wont do enough damage to enemies without your powers being upgraded (which will not be an issue once you start a newgame+). @BeholdMyStrengthFan Get the Assault Rifle training and equip a Mattlock Heavy Rifle. Very defense oriented. Great video, this is the core strategy of people who love to charge with shotgun: wait for enemy separating—charge toward your enemy for point-blank shot—find cover—wait for next opportunity. Mass Effect 2 is a game that is all about choice and decisions, this is no different with the classes. point blank with a game-pad is hell. Required fields are marked *. @Aratrok1 Wrong response. meaning more classes are more deadly. (Yay.) Grunt is a walking talking tank, where as Miranda comes in handy whenever the Collectors are around (Warp).

From what I remember the game works on a percentage system. Back when fighters did nothing but swing a sword or axe and had no real skills or special abilities, I found this to be extremely boring. I don’t see Cloak or other Power types. i chose vanguard and soldier mostly. (Pistol is ok, It's just I'm getting tired of it.) When I started Mass Effect 1, I went with soldier to get a handle for how the game played, kind of like taking a fighther/warrior in fantasy RPG's. And then you’d still be able to solve all the disputes. Does the Assault Rifle (=other weapons) expert achievement carry over on to ME 2 i.e. Change its value to INT (it probably stands for ‘international’).

I would actually change the squad ammo powers to heavy, especially warp ammo. @GameCritic101 I personally love the Adept, Adept is able to attack fast and control enemies really well.

This is a video showing all the class videos that have been released by Bioware in the months leading up to the January 26th-29th 2010 release of Mass Effect 2. There’s also the fact that weapons are hitscan while most powers are projectile, and most powers become less helpful as difficulty goes up and enemies get more shields and armor. Coming back for the memories. This is my case on why the infiltrator is the best class in Mass Effect 2. yep, no class change for ME2 import. The best tank/dps is obviously the soldier, but you can argue that the Infiltrator it’s a little better because he has access to electronics and decryption. I hope you’re back for Mass Effect 3. @ACushTheBoss i dont think so BUT adept has more powers, wereas soldier has few so soldier doesnt need to be careful with weapons since powers doesnt matter much to him… the opposite goes for adept for instance and thats were it comes in.

Their 190 starting bonus to paragon or renegade makes the boost from the talent meaningless.
