Vanguard is really a Specialty Outlander Hero readily available inside the game. The amount of perks and abilities depends upon the hero's maximum evolution and level. Vanguard is extremely fantastic at a certain niche. He's one of several two "punchy" outlanders. He and Striker A.C. are both focused on their anti-material charge, they get a sizable cooldown reduction for those who destroy an object with it. That tends to make them excellent for running about city maps, smashing parking meters and punching automobiles of all shapes and sizes. This gives a ton of nuts and bolts and mechanical components. I use this guy along with a pathfinder jess for all my farming.

As a vanguard, Vanguard Southie is prepared to be within the thick of it. His complete schtick is that he moves immediately and punches stuff with Anti-Material Charge that his skills enhance. Regrettably, while Anti-Material Charge is wonderful for gathering materials, it isn't so great for damage like they want you to make use of this outlander for. Nevertheless, he is a decent resourcing hero when you lack a Jess or an Eagle Eye. Vanguard Southie comes in Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarity.
