Lift Grenade: Radius (4), Max Grenades (5), Damage and Radius (6)

Rage: Durability (4), Martial Artist (5), Fitness Expert (6)
Primary: A big, heavy shotgun. I like to stick to my Krogan roots and carry the Claymore. Put a Blade Attachment on it.
Secondary: A big, heavy sniper. I like the Widow.
Obviously your recharge speed is going to suffer horribly with this weapon loadout, but that’s why you ignore cooldown powers completely (just Incinerate for this class). The spec emphasizes durability, and with 1600 shields, 1200 health, and 40% damage reduction (70% while raging) this is the most durable build in the game. It also emphasizes increased weapon damage giving your heavy hitting weapons a significant boost. With a sniper and a shotgun you’re deadly at any range, but the build is most fun when you’re smacking things around. Take the time to carefully build yourself into a rage, picking off lone, weaker enemies. Husks are especially great for this. Once you’re in Rage mode, you can take a ridiculous amount of punishment. I haven’t tried it on Gold yet, but on Silver, you can easily charge a pack of Geth that includes 3 Pyros and multiple Troopers and come out with your shield intact. You can charge a turret, eat missiles, one-shot Centurions, Marauders, etc. with a heavy melee. The toughest part is recognizing when you’re finally outmatched and should beat a quick retreat and start thinning the ranks with your Widow. Always keep in mind that you can wreak havok at any range, don’t be too eager to rush into melee.
N00b Rating (scale 1-5, 1 is easy for everybody!)
2. This is, quite simply, the most durable build in the game. The only difficulty comes in mastering your chosen weapons and learning to recognize when you need to retreat. It’s very easy to get carried away!
