Good enough to take to pink star?

I think I have this right. I hope I have this right. I am trying to get it right!

I just unlocked this assault’s fifth trait and I think it makes him good enough to keep leveling up. Am I right?

    I would say yes

    Thanks, @anthony172. He doesn’t have iron skin but I have some good health badges to help him out.

    I guess it's a matter of personal preference, but I would not continue leveling.

    Revenge on an assault is poor due to the inherently low damage numbers for the class.

    Defensive stance only activates when in over-watch and does not directly add with iron skin / damage reduction badges - it is more like a percent multiplier. And while in over-watch, you target a single walker at 50% of normal damage with occasional collateral damage. I know many are keen on a defensive assault having this trait, but they almost unanimously require it to be paired with the iron skin trait and enough damage reduction badges to get near the cap.

    My preference for an assault is lucky, marksman, sure-shot, dodge, iron skin. Good armor with iron skin + stun resist + dodge/health. Three damage reduction badges, two percent damage boost badges, and a health boost badge. Can take down +4/5 with one shot, and can take 2-3 hits from +4/5 without bruising

    @The_Jer, I greatly appreciate your advice. I am trying to get this all figured out and you have helped immensely.

    100% agree with you. Also not a fan of revenge in assualts because of their limited range.

    Your preferred assault is the exact same one I have and she’s an absolute badass

    This is my guy - rolls though 28/29 normals like a lawn mower, and more than holds his own on 30's
    But my badges are not as good as @Cronus - how many goats did you have to sacrifice to get that leg damage reduction badge?

    That damage reduction badge was the first one I ever crafted with the original stuff we were given. I had no idea what I had. I went months and months without assigning any badges cause it was too complicated to figure it all out. Now I have 4 tabs on a spreadsheet to track, sort and arrange them.

    I agree with the @The_Jer minus I dont care for sure shot on my assault class, rather have defensive stance, I seem to move my assault around to much for sure shot to be really useful
