Anthem is out for 6 days now and I’ve already maxed out to level 30 and already reached Epic status for my Ranger Javelin. At the time of this writing, I recently finished the missionHOT TOYS Iron Man Mark IV Diecast Iron Man 2 1 6 Scale Figure MINT NEW IN BOX , where I have to find Haluk at the Fortress of Dawn, completed Tyrant Mines in Grandmaster Level 1 once (two Missions and one Agent Contract on Grandmaster Level 1 difficulty), already got five Masterwork weapons (two Wyvern Blitz, one Artinia’s Gambit, one Elemental Rage, and one Avenging Herald), one Masterwork Frost Grenade, and one Masterwork Component (Airborne Advantage). I still have to write my review before this week will end though.
I stumbled on guides through guides and noticed that they have only spent 10 hours or even just looted a couple of Rare items and mostly Uncommon ones in below 200 Power Level. I won’t name any publications, but I would rather read guides that were written by a player who spent his or her time getting as far as Level 30 and gotten a few Masterwork gears – and took Tyrant Mines in Grandmaster Level 1 difficulty at least once or twice.
After 29 hours with the game, I’ve come up with a guide on how to use the Ranger Javelin effectively.
The Ranger Javelin is the standard suit there is in Bastion. It’s not as bulky and spongy like the Colossus, it’s not as fast as the Interceptor, or even cast lightning bolts on top of an enemy group, but a balanced Javelin that’s great for players who wanted to still pack a lot of damage and can easily outmaneuver enemies.
It has an Assault Launcher, a Support Gear, and can pack Grenades. You have to utilize what you have equipped, change loadouts when needed, and have the right mix of Components to maximize your play using the Ranger Javelin in Strongholds, World Events, Missions, and Agent Contracts.
If you get tired of changing Assault Launchers to Pulse Blast and other gears, you can use the extra 4 loadout slots to switch back and forth easily in the Forge. In my case, I have four specific saved Ranger loadouts with their own armor customizations (for the sake of looking cool) and named them for certain scenarios: Frost Defensive (Missions/Agent Contracts), Offensive (Agent Contracts), Standard (Missions), and Tyrant (for Tyrant Mine Strongholds) – I’ll get into specifics about my different Ranger loadouts in a separate article.
Bulwark Point – Keep enemies out of your bubble with a spherical shield that protects your squad.
Major tip for using the Bulwark Point: If you want to use the Bulwark Point as means to block incoming attacks for a long period of time, it won’t work. The Bulwark Point can help sometimes especially reviving downed squad members, but not when Legendary and Elite enemies are throwing everything they have at your shield. If they’re melee based attack units, they’ll just waltz Brand New Sealed in Box Lego City Marina Retired Set 4644, right inside. In short, use the Bulwark Point to defend against heavy attacks and then in a second or two, fly out and look for a place where you get proper cover; and to also repair your fellow Javelin since it gives you the right amount of time to bring them back up and escape.
Muster Point – Cover your teammates with a spherical shield that increases weapon damage.
Major tip for using the Muster Point: When deploying the Muster Point to gain more damage, you have to put in mind that it does not protect you from the enemies’ attack. Strategic positioning is key to maximize the usage of the Muster Point for everyone in the squad including yourself.

I hope this basic guide will help you through your adventure as a Freelancer Ranger in Bastion! After my review of Anthem by the end of the week, I’ll have an article out that focuses on builds and share to you what I have for my Ranger Javelin.
