Batarian Slasher Adept Edit

ME3 Batarian Slasher.png
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.

Abilities Edit

Heavy Melee and Dodge Edit

  • Enforcement Gauntlets - The Batarian Slasher Adept winds up a powerful punch with an omni-tool gauntlet.
  • Batarian Slasher Adepts lack a dodge maneuver.

Player Notes Edit

General Notes
  • 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.
  • Cluster Grenade will prove lethal when used on an unshielded Atlasto quickly tear away its armor.
  • Although the Batarian Slasher has Lash which can stagger or pullPhantoms, caution should still be exercised as like all the batarians the slasher is slow, and cannot evade at all.
  • Because the Batarian Slasher lacks Blade Armor, he is unable to deflect Phantom melees.
  • If you are playing against Geth than it may be a good idea to leaveLash and invest points somewhere else as it only affects Geth Troopers without the rank 6 shield penetration.
  • No Reaper unit other than the Marauder is able to dodge Warp.
  • Lash will be of less use here since only Cannibals and Husks will be affected by it without the rank 6 upgrade enabling it to affect shielded enemies.
  • Because all Collector units have (or can gain) either barriers or armor, Warp and Cluster Grenades will be very effective.
