(compared to other similarly costed units)
The Corp. Response figures in The Lab set are similar to the generic foot soldiers of any movie, book, or other game. They're nameless, faceless warriors who you expect to see fighting and dying in the background while the main character more effectively turns the tide for the good guys.
With this in mind, I was rather surprised when the Veteran Corp. Response figure turned out to be a very potent unit for the relatively low cost of 40-points. Sure you only have four effective clicks, but the first four clicks are practically identical with 9-attack (with Accuracy), 17 defense (with Stamina), 2-damage, and a speed of 8 (dropping down only to 7 on the fourth click)! The range of 6 is very solid. The biggest disadvantages are it's short dial, the fact it suicides on it's fifth and final click (an hourglass on movement, but this could deny your opponent the points so it's not a total loss), and the fact that it doesn't have a good answer for Invulnerable monsters that are adjacent to it. But for 40-points, there isn't too much more one can ask from a figure than what the Veteran Corp. Response provides.
This is probably the best of the cheap Guardians, so be prepared to see plenty of these foot soldiers in Guardian teams. It may not have the combination of damage, attack, and defense of the Veteran Vampire Hunter, but for about half the cost, these guys will give their fair share of headaches.
