Honestly, at this point it seems Vanguard just ISNT a soldier with a gun anymore. You never really get to shoot things.
And then they remove one of the few "Shoot things" abilities left.
Wow, really? reaaaaaall smooth. Doesn't help that it's other animations just don't compare to Bounty Hunter (Who acts like Iron Man) anyway.
Anyways, here's my idea on how to change it. if anyone that has a sub (Because I just don't do subs, It's either permanent or no) feel free to copypaste this.
1: Redesign Mortar Barrage to "Suppressing fire" which lays down a barrage of automatic firepower to stun and deal damage in an area.
2: Explosive round switched to "Overcharged blast" aka a large single blaster round.
3: Stockstrike turned into "Wristblade" which should be self-explanatory, and basically the sci-fi version of a combat knife.
4: Storm needs to be given some sort of logic, end of discussion. The Trooper's "Inspiration" (Storm and Clone troopers) have been seen using jetpacks, heck it's one of the first scenes of the Clone Wars movie. Come on, just give us a cool jetpack.
5: Pulse Cannon, Ion Storm, all the "Lightning Gun" features are fired from the off-hand instead. It both looks awesome (Oh, cute, you gave up your soul for lightning, I just bought some) in a "Don't need no stinkn force" way, and gets rid of the "Swiss army gun" problem.
