Fortnite Outlander Heroes Guide - Vanguard (Abilities & Perks)

Fortnite Date: Aug/10/18 16:28:18 Views: 4653

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.
