Getting the hang of Geth Bruce Lee (6/6/6/0/6.) 150k vs Cerberus Gold on Giant. I can't recall why I wasted so much time with Geth Gold White. On average my clear time with randoms is faster on random maps vs random enemies.

I use a little more equipment on random Gold, but I'm well supplied thanks to those Jumbo Equipment Packs.

In comparison the 'Premium' Spectre Packs have proven to be pretty useless to me. I'm tempted to stop getting them and just start saving in case they decide to release Mega-Premium-Spectre Packs one day.

Just select contact us, select the game and then any category until the live chat option to click on. Wait a couple minutes, then someone should get to you. Explain you beat the squad goal for the weekend event and didnt get your commendation pack. They will ask for you Origin email and first and last name and you should be good to go.

Yeah the jumbo equip packs were a god send. Also, the premium spectre packs have given me nothing decent, i think ill just stick with the regular spectre ones.

Well, i finally got my Arc Pistol X. At least i wont get it anymore in packs, and maybe i'll have a chance to get Carnifex above I.

Still, its a nice pistol, so im gonna use it until Carnifex gets higher ranks.

I'm curious what the first and probably only MP patch is going to include. The longer the hold off the more stuff they will discover which pushes the patch back even more. And in that time they could've just sent 2 or 3 patches out.

Been 2 months and there's tons of issues.

Every patch that you have to download costs the developer $40,000, courtesy of MS. Don't know about Sony or PC. That's why they're waiting to address the most amount of issues possible.

Fake Edit: Fuck yes. Contacted EA for no Commendation pack via instant messaging. Got it up less than 5 minutes later. Hello 5 medigel and N7 Valiant I YESSSS.

Lady and gentlemen. I'm all happy to announce that I have finally all common, uncommon and gold weapons in the game at level X.

I am now missing a billion ultra rares and basically all specials.

My next objectives are : filling up my characters cards, getting a Saber, a Black Widow and a Paladin. Then, be lucky enough to get a Valiant soon in a week end.

Enjoy your endless character cards and maxing out the Scorpion before getting any other ultra rares.

Its not... BAD. Especially at IV, the weight reduction makes it a lot more practical and its a fucking cannon.

Its just that I'd expect a lot fucking more from the Ultra Rare of ARs. May as well just have it change slots with the Revenant.

Finally unlocked the GI, now I just need some builds.

I also got two Wraiths in a row :< I want a Saber instead god dammit.

EDIT: Which build should I go for: Geth Grenadier, melee build, or shotgun? I can't try them all out because I don't have time to level them up and I don't want to use the respec cards (I want those out of the pool).

Any 360 users playing right now? I'd appreciate an invite. Past few games, I've been partied up with people that just don't seem to know what they're doing on Gold... And they have high N7 ratings too!

Felt like wasting time and precious equipment.

What would you change about it? With a stability mod, I loved using it in single player—it's ferocious.

I haven't unlocked one in multiplayer yet, and the fact that you're complaining about it at level IV makes me want to hit you. :P

Power damage doesn't affect weapon damage or the cloak weapon damage bonus.

It should come with penetration like the Widow and Javelin if nothing else. Its nice, but against bigger mobs in Gold it just doesn't stand up like it should. Either the weight should drop, or it should get the added AP.

Yeah. It'd make it a lot more practical... even though its great. It's probably amazing at X too.

Btw, just got a Scorpion after 9 straight character cards! (Almost) WORTH IT

Why the fuck does it weigh so much!?

I just stick to Gold and firmly trust/believe in the 3 shot policy for all characters and classes. You will be dead in 3 shots.

With that kind of speed on an Infiltrator you can dominate any map and set up for any situation. I prefer that mod over Power Efficiency now... Its ridiculous how fast you can cover ground in a sprint and if you have host you can damn near circle strafe most enemies.

Go for damage/20% damage increase from all attacks/damage.

Radius is nice to have, but not necessary. Slowing targets down is like... they'd slow down a lot faster if they're dead and that 20% can mean a lot.

Having a proximity mine that hits hard for decent damage can also help set off Tech Bursts and other explosions.

I have a hard time learning things so I opened one more pack this morning. 5 Thermal clips... Assault Rifle III... Stabilization III (useful!) and two Krogans (Sentinel/Soldier) just smiling at me. I know they're trolling me. One useful item for 99,000 credits. No thank you.

I've decided I'm done with them until new DLC hits. The number of character cards I get makes Premium Spectre Packs far less appealing than Jumbo Equipment Packs.

Javelin IV
M-358 Talon I
Scorpion Pistol
M-99 Saber III
Black Widow I
Wraith II
M-77 Paladin I

That's what my Ultra-Rare list is staying at.

The Ultra Rares seem to be fucking amazing once they get leveled, but after all the trouble to get them... fucking geez

It makes more sense for them just to be scaled to a 1-5 growth instead of 1-10 for sheer practicality. I don't even have an incentive to use them because all of my other weapons are at X and simply better all-around at this stage of the game.

A Scorpion X should be the Engineer's best and only true friend. It'd be lighter than the Falcon and Striker and able to control crowds at a better level because of the proximity mine-esque feature. Add in Ammo Mods and it should be a Tech Burst/Explosion machine between Incinerate, Overload, Cryo Blast, and Turret Shenanigans.

The Hurricane is a flamethrower. It'll tear down an Atlas faster than anything else at its weight. Throw a stabilizer on it if you need to. It's definitely a close to mid-range weapon though.

The Eagle, however, is fucking terrible. An irredeemable pile of garbage.

But the Hurricane is a SMG, how can i put a stabilizer on a SMG if there is no such mod for them? Unless you're talking about the heat sink?
