Nemesis Specialisation Shot.png

Nemesis is an unlockable specialization class for the Adept and Vanguard. A biotic who uses their abilities to damage and weaken their foes, the Nemesis gains bonus damage to all biotic abilities, and is granted improved versions of Lift and Warp. Improved Lift increases its radius, and improved Warp increases its radius and damage done per second.

Bonus: Increases duration and damage of biotic abilities
Rank Bonus Notes
7 4% Stacks with Adept/Vanguard bonuses.
8 6%
9 8% Increases Warp's radius by 2m and damage per second by 25%.
10 10%
11 12%
12 14% Increases Lift's radius by 4 m.

Note: Choosing the Nemesis specialization as the Vanguard alters a base class passive. The pistol and shotgun damage increase is 1 percentage point higher for each rank after the first, resulting in a total bonus of 15% instead of a regular 10%. The same is NOT true for the Shock Trooper.
