The Kung-Fu Panda is built around Batarian Gauntlets.
Despite having both Biotic Charge and Shield Boost the volus needs a higher base shield, equipping a cyclonic modulator is necessary with how much our diminutive hero will be in the mix.
This little ball of fury is an amazing mook wrecking ball. Biotic Charge and immediately flow into heavy melee to crush the head of any foot soldier, phantoms and collector captains included. The Panda keeps himself protected during this long wind up falcon punch attack utilizing damage reduction from both the melee animation and the post biotic charge bonus for a total of 75% damage blocked. Pick a new target and charge again to refill shields and keep your melee spree going. Kung-Fu Panda is essentially a stunted, less durable Batarian Brawler with Shield Boost to support teammates. While fighting large enemies capable of sync killing your diminutive ass I recommend Biotic Charging them and backing off as you shoot. Don’t try punching a banshee. And remember you still have your cloak. It’s not a bad plan to light melee cloak and immediately fly across the map to punch a dude while cloaked as it tends to keep you that much safer from weapons fire while charging your heavy melee. Our Panda Hero is a grade A medic too.
3.5 – This tiny guy is effective and easy but you’re gonna need your teammates to take down the big bosses for you. And something has to be said about the perverse pleasure to be taken in flying about the battlefield as an little bitty ball of fat, judo chopping baddies in the nuts.
