This video shows you how to play the vanguard tactically. I demonstrate several tactics a vanguard can use to steamroll insanity. Even though the video is a tutorial and not a speed run, the run is completed in under 4 minutes showing that a tactical vanguard can clear an area very fast without taking any damage. The final battle of the video is unnecessary as you can just run to the final button, however I stay to fight to show how a vanguard can still be a very powerful ranged biotic combatant when charging is risky.

This video uses the Pull/Barrier Build for a Vanguard. This is a good build however is inferior to the reave build (in my opinion). To watch the reave build in action you can watch my other videos.

The following is a brief list of some of the tactics I employ during the video:

-Use cover like all other classes (used repeatedly throughout the video, good example is at 0:57)

-Flank enemies with charge by charging a rear or side enemy (watch 1:48 for a flank of the harbinger)

-Use charge to knock back one enemy and shoot the one next to him (Used repeatedly, 3:36 is a good example)

-Charge can also be used to make you invulnerable to projectiles which are coming at you.

-Any time your shields have dropped and you are exposed (not safe behind cover) you need to charge.

-Charge in, gun down one enemy then take cover. Learn how to immediately take cover after a charge kill. (The battle at 3:44 is a good example)

-Most importantly, do not force a bad charge because you think that you have to charge since you are a vanguard. (Final battle at 3:55 is a good example of when not to charge)

-Use warp explosions set off by a pull as your most damaging ranged biotic attack, it is perfect for when charging is a bad idea. (Used repeatedly, especially at final battle at 4:05 and 4:17)
