The Spitfire shows up as UR in the manifest but when I got one in-game it was gold label. Anyone else had this happen?

Ah, drat. I was hoping it was actually a rare drop chance and we could max it out before Bioware fixed it.

His name is Robin Recon Hood hth.

I took the Geth Scanner for a spin on a solo bronze just as a test. It's actually really helpful, I might use it on my eventual silver and gold solos as well. It neuters the geth's 'flank and surprise' gimmick really well and it's super easy to just kite poo poo around the map when you know you aren't walking into an ambush.

I've been messing around with Psion's combo build from a couple pages back and oh BOY is it fun. It's plenty destructive without the piercing.

Re: Warlord, I swear I did a melee attack with the hammer that wasn't heavy melee + standing still. I couldn't reproduce it--am I a crazy person? What are the various key combinations with him to get the melee attacks?

KroWar has three melee attacks. There's the heavy melee (hammer smash), a combo attack from hitting light melee three times (the final hit detonates the hammer power), and the standard heavy melee other Krogan kits have (which you get by pressing melee while running).

Can someone explain to me why Rio's box of shame is so appealing? Sure you don't get instakilled but it also boxes you in () with no cover while pyros and hunters blast your face off. At best it's a place to retreat to briefly while the Jugg tanks a Banshee but I've seen people camp there for entire waves and it was a guddamn bloodbath. loving pubbies, learn to kite poo poo!

Alright, thanks for the box of shame explanation guys. I think I understand it better now. It's still a stupid strategy that's less effective than just learning to play well, but pubs will be pubs I suppose. It wouldn't bug me so much if random Plat didn't automatically equal '24/7 Rio funtime'. Still, beats Condor I guess.

It is dumb and takes forever, and some objectives are a pain in the dick on Rio. Most pubbies are too dumb to even do the box strategy.
They think they can whip out a harrier and do work like they do in bronze and silver. On ps3 at least, the harrier is usually the sign of a lovely player for me if I'm on anything above silver.

We get the same Harrier using dipshits on Xbox too. People hear it's OP (which is true) but don't learn to work around the downsides like recoil or lack of ammo. Still, it beats the old days of every single player carrying a Widow. At least power users can use the Harrier and not gently caress up their cooldowns too badly.

I have no idea why I just now noticed this, but in the OP, it says Condor is on Palaven. It's actually on the moon of Palaven that do the single-player mission on.

It's me, I am the BSN.txt

Get a load of this sperglord. Next you're gonna tell me the Death Star's shield generator wasn't on Endor.

Wait, arrows use grenades so they don't have cooldown either, right? So the Talon can go to -200% and not blink twice or leave a tip?

His grenade regen rate is based on the cooldown meter, so while it's not as important as a straight up caster you'll still want to keep weapon weight in mind.

That reminds me of a game I was playing last week: guy was playing a Juggernaut and liberally using its heavy melee on anything and everything. Normally whenever I see that, I take the opportunity to help kill their target so they can tie up another enemy. I've had some great games where the Geth player picks up on this and we frolic around the map ripping everything apart, but this one guy... we all get the same rewards at the end of the day, so why in the gently caress would you even remotely care about killstealing? We're playing Gold, anything that makes the enemy dead faster is a good thing!

I try and be a good team player, but seriously, gently caress guys like that.

The only thing I could see him getting mildly upset about is if he chose the heavy melee evolution that gives you a speed boost after each kill. Even then it's not a vital part of the playstyle like with Vorcha or Krogans, he should've been grateful to have backup.

Yeah if you know how to use soft cover he can just dump out so much damage it's insane. I have this spec and he's just nuts. All AP arrows all the time. If you really want to spam Cains, change that to Grenade Capacity gear instead.

I took this build for a spin this morning. Insane is right. I wrote off not-Zaeed right after release figuring they would need a game patch to make him not suck, but whatever they buffed server-side must have done the trick. AP arrows are loving awesome now. Now if only Phantoms would stop cartwheeling around every single godddamn arrow I fire.

I would love a new ME:MP game.

I bet we'll see a teaser trailer for a new Mass Effect game next month at the Spike Dew and Dorito video game awards. ME3 had a trailer like a year after 2 came out, they must have something to show by now.
