Yes, from my experience of seeing others play Colossus, they either die quickly or walk around with the shield up and die soon after lowering it. Colossus needs some love from BioWare... not to mention his armor rating is still bugged.

It seems you are playing on normal? On hard these enemies melt you very quickly, especially if you are running in their midst.

Sounds like you shouldn't be playing on hard.

Likely have some stupid universal mods equipped.

 

Colossus is fine, people are playing it wrong.

 

So fed up of all this whining. If you can't handle the playstyle then it's not the Javelin for you.

Colossus is the strongest of all javelins, but not easy to master. Most play him totally wrong.... The talk about the shield proves it.

With a full colossus crew we killed  the spiderqueen on hardmode before she couldn't even spawn her first addwave.... And we only had a powerlevel of 250 . now i'm close to 400 and she dies even faster with a colossus crew if everyone knows how to play him.

 


so your saying you cant do that with other javelins?

@chaos777c I do just fine on hard, I’ve been playing on hard since the beginning. I just don’t understand how you can run in the middle of the enemies and no one shoots you...

@TheDarkrayne No one is whining, on the contrary, just trying to help.

I mean across the multiple topics on this, not this specific one.

 

Everyone needs to get to endgame and be properly geared before they start suggesting changes.

You don't just sit in the middle of them.  Your shield is out, so the shots hit the shield.  You run directly at them and charge them like a rhino.  They bounce off the shield and if you've been hitting them with flamethrower or the railgun, they'll start dying as you trample them.

Champion

If you’re going to land in the middle of a crowd of enemies, you’ll want to start staggering and killing them, not turtle behind your shield. Otherwise you’ll die in any javelin. The shield is extra buffer to block damage spikes. If they were going to let you use weapons and abilities from behind it, they might as well just give you a regular energy shield instead.

 

And yea, it plays much better if you unlock it last, when you have the slots for upgrades. If you unlock it at level 2 you’re probably going to have a bad time.
