While you can play as a long-range archer in Chivalry 2, many players choose melee classes like the Vanguard. The Vanguard is a good choice if you want a balance between power and speed. This guide will show you how you can build and use the Vanguard in Chivalry 2.
Vanguard Guide – Chivalry 2
The Vanguard only has lower HP, making you more vulnerable compared to other classes. This will also make you weak against archers. However, because of your light armor, you are one of the fastest class in the game.
Vanguards have the highest movement speed and stamina pool in the game. When it comes to skills, the Warhorn is the best option, allowing you to heal yourself and nearby teammates. The Vanguard can also carry two weapons.
You can throw the other one if needed. For the weapons, the Dane Axe and Messer are some of the best options. You can also use the Two-handed Hammer against knights. The Glaive is not as powerful as the other weapons above but can be great for one-handed weapons enemies.
Since you can take two weapons, you can combine any of the weapons above as you see fit. This flexibility is why the Vanguard is one of the strongest classes out there.
