A battle rifle that fires in three-round bursts. Favored by assassins and elite mercenaries, and deadly at any range. Manufactured by Elanus Risk Control Services for the Blue Suns mercenary group, the Vindicator is popular in the Terminus Systems.
The Vindicator deals respectable damage despite its light weight, making it ideal for power dependent classes that want a bit more punch and better accuracy than the Avenger offers.
The recoil can be drastically reduced (but not eliminated) by playing as a turian Soldier or Sentinel and evolving Turian Veteran to reduce recoil. This makes it far better than the Avenger at medium and long range.
A piercing mod would make the Vindicator very effective against enemy armor, as well as address a flaw with all assault rifles - the inability to penetrate shields or plating. Armour piercing ammo can also be used to accomplish this, but the ammo only lasts one mission and has varying statistics, but it doesn't take up a mod slot. If using the latter option, consider adding a dampener, or Extended Clip mod.
