Little is known about the batarian homeworld of Khar'shan or its inhabitants. As a result, the race is judged by those whom the Hegemony allows to travel beyond its borders: organized crime enforcers, pirate boarding parties, slaver gangs, and gladiatorial combatants.
Batarians are large brawlers that use nets and spiked weapons to capture targets...or to bleed them dry on the battlefield. If an opponent gets too close, a batarian enforcer bludgeons them with spiked armor and enforcement gauntlets.
The Batarian Slasher is the only batarian character to lack Blade Armor. However, he is a versatile character, being able to cause both area of effect damage and single target damage from afar, as well as having high base health and shields and a powerful melee attack. This means the Slasher can efficiently switch between ranged and close combat.
On most maps, a properly angled Lash projectile can toss most enemies out of the map, counting as an instant kill.
Lash will be useful against Guardians by removing their shield.
