The power build focuses on increasing Rhinos abilities in strength, especially his Roar ability which will greatly increase the damage he and his squad can do to enemies.
This build will cause Rhino Charge and Rhino Stop to deal great amounts of damage as well due to the high ability strength.
Iron Skin will give a huge amount of protection to Rhino which will allow him to endure heavy amounts of damage.
This build is great for buffing the team and for tanking a lot of damage but has a downside of having a slightly higher cost in energy since its main purpose is for Roar.

Crowd Control Build
The crowd control build focuses on being able to suspend a large amount of enemies in a big radius using Rhino Stomp while allowing Rhino to still gain a decent benefit from his other abilities.
This build will mostly focus on Rhino Stop disabling enemies but his Roar ability and others will still be useful during missions.
With this build Rhino can disable a large quantity of enemies when situations might need him to deal crowd control or when certain enemies need to be disabled to be teamed up on.
Basically this build is to make use of Rhino Stomp so that Rhino and his allies may attack or escape from enemies.

The balanced build focuses on Rhino being able to use all of his abilities with a semi-balanced mod set allowing him to use his abilities efficiently.
Rhino should be able to cast all of his abilities frequently during the game or use them at the same time with little need to keep searching for energy.
This build will still provide a decent buff when using Roar and will also be great for crowd control when Rhino stomp is used.
