Vanguard Profile.png
Vanguard

Vanguards have an aggressive combat style, preferring to close in on enemies and deal heavy damage at short range.

This profile reconfigures Ryder's implant and physiology in subtle ways, allowing him/her to absorb energy from enemies on impact and shunt that energy into reinforcing his/her shields.
