The Vanguard is a Super-Rare unit from Metal Slug Attack. While it functions the same as its Metal Slug Defense incarnation. Parts are currently available through the Guild Shop (500 Guild Medals for each 5 parts) or on the occasional Event Crank.
It shares the same move-set as its Metal Slug Defense incarnation, primarily attacking the enemies with its oval-shaped ray gun in 3 different elevations while its special attack fires a disc-shaped laser beam from its eye. Having 4 unlocked increases its special count to 4.
Originally, Vanguard's close-range attack's sound effect was swapped to its special attack's vice versa. This was later then fixed since 2.1.0.
Ray Gun - Fires 3 oval-shaped lasers from its arms in 3 different elevation.
