IA Sniper or Trooper Vanguard?

I can't really decide between the two of these. I think I would prefer the fighting style of the Sniper, but I would enjoy the Vanguard's story and companions. Any suggestions on which I should choose, or should I just roll both?

if cover doesn't bother you go sniper, the ia's story is probably the best one in the game imo

unfortunately i can't stand cover, so i went vanguard

Thanks a lot. I didn't know much about the snipers story, so that helped a bit. I think I'll roll Sniper first, and start a Vanguard if I don't like the cover system, or once I'm at 40+.

They both have very solid storylines, and the first two characters I've made are an IA and a Trooper. Sniper and Vanguard are very different beasts however, so just know what you're letting yourself in for, mechanic-wise.

I'm working on getting a Smuggler in-play, which was the first class I wanted to play. The reason it's taken me this long to get to the Smuggler is that the other two are that good.
