Having major trouble defeating Kai Leng, keep dying around the second wave. Any tips?

without knowing your class, and team compo but based on my experience playing through in sentinel class I never had any trouble with him. main points on Kai Leng, stay away as his sword is devastating and chip away at him with an upgraded heavy pistol with armour piercing ammo if available as his shield is really high, keep your team on the move as much as possible (as frantic as it is for sure) randomly rotate their positions to opposite sides from him as you can while all the time attacking cos he will incapacitate a stationary target really easy.

the main damage I did was biotic all the way as it's far easier to cast and move than shoot through his shields and he's so agile, invest heavily in Liara's stasis and hold him while you chain biotic detonations with throw/other biotic combo, having a good armour/overload x2 chain evolution should also stun him.

revive your armour when you can, medi kits come easy through the levels

*ALSO* sometimes he will 'pick a target' other than you and keep going for that person, (this is good as long as you can keep that person alive) medi heal that person as needed and do as much damage with the breathing space that distraction affords you. I found he kept going for liara (i would ;) ) maybe he hated stasis so wanted her dead asap so I kept her running often

take cover where you can as well as the cerberus and phantoms seem to fire homing rounds from range even when you can't see the shots flying your armour will burn quick

that was my method anyhow
