The Vindicator VND-1X may not seem that powerful but if you utilize his hardpoints and quirks the right way it can be devastating on the battlefield. His main disadvantage is the low engine cap and the awkward hardpoint distribution. It does not seem to fit any certain role. But if you take a closer look you will see that his quirks enable him for a very interesting playstyle. In the first phases of the game you stay back and lay support fire. Try to reduce as much armor as possible to help out your team and make the later phases easier for you. Once the brawl begins you can go in and wreak havoc with your triple and heavily quirked machine guns. These weapons are excellent finishing weapons. If the enemy has stripped components you can destroy them (and any equipment in it) very easily.
