The Bodyguard is a both an offensive powerhouse and a defensive tower of strength. He wields Hammers and Shotguns to handle large groups of enemies at a time. While wading through swarms of monsters his great ability to weaken enemies and Block incoming attacks keeps him safe, and he wreaks havoc among his foes with strong Blast attacks.
The Deck offers good survivability and great area damage. It is a good choice if you plan on fighting alone against groups of monsters. The Bodyguard can also do very well in player versus player combat. Being able to leap quickly onto groups of other players, hitting all of them at once while staying alive with strong defenses, is a good strategy for a frontline fighter.
