Hm, that's a good point I suppose. But I'm reasonably sure he was like level 16 or so.

EDIT: Speaking of biotics with guns, do Asari Justicars usually run with some more firepower than the usual Adepts? They do get quite a hefty reduction to the weight of ARs, but that would require taking the passive up to 6.

I use a Harrier (scope and stabilization) with a Phalanx (ultralight and scope) as my sidearm. I also don't use Pull at all, so I went full with the passive (AR reduction).

I play this game way too much and my URs are all still between II and VI. Are you guys spending actual money or something?

Just getting lucky, really. It also helps that my roommate plays on my account, too, so the game is on for 8-10 hours a day.

Edit: As an aside, Because my roommate and I have spent so much time playing, we've kinda run out of character builds to play. Here is our manifest right here and if anyone wants to look through it and give us ideas, that would be awesome.

I think my favorite character name I came up with was Urdnot Bettis for a Kroguard. He's in the old LA Rams blue and yellow.

Man, the first time in almost a month I decide to play ME3 Multiplayer, and Xbox Live just shits the bed. C'est La Vie.

Trykt, Fingers, a friend of mine, and myself just ran TRAIN on Collectors in Platinum. It was incredibly intense.

Details? Classes, guns, maps?

Two Ghosts, a Turian Sentinel, and a Salarian Infiltrator. I was using a Harrier IX, and the Infiltrator was using a Valiant III
