Well, if I really HAVE to shoot you in the bollocks to shut you up, then I guess I'll need to, post-haste, for everyone else's sake.


Oh, and you don't have to be level 20 to get the XP put into one of the universal rank-thingies. That bar has been filling while I've been levelling up from 1, though it appears there's a few different "universal" perks that are attached to different classes. The human soldiers, for instance, get the "increased shields" perk, while human infiltrator (or at least the female one) gets increased health regen.

Most of the guns I've experienced so far sound amazing so you might be experiencing a bug (which is believable, as there was a big sound bug with positional audio that got fixed already).

Or you just have strange taste if you don't think the katana and viper sound good.

The viper, katana and avenger all sounded pretty much the same for me, which I hope is a bug because the weapon sounds in the trilogy were pretty distinct and cool (and good)

I do like that change I must admit. Even if most games of MEA seem to last about the same time as ME3, sometimes the ME3 ones could feel really long.

Double great.


So far this is exactly what I wanted: the same but more of it. I'm addicted all over again, though the starting classes all kind of are meh aside from Vanguard. Human Eng is great except for having a dead skill (Turret) though maybe that's a good thing because it means they have something you can safely ignore.

I've been using a Revenant on everyone because it's the best overall weapon I've unlocked so far (but I just got the Talon so ) It has a shitload of bullets, does decent damage, and has very little recoil. I also have a Widow but haven't tried doing a class yet. For a while I was going around hip-firing a Viper III though, that was fun.

The single player is actually amazingly good, at least the first mission is, but holy poo poo I gotta make more credits to buy some packs

I'll be on for a while probably, PS4 PSN zerodrone

I dunno. Turret is a decent distraction early on, and a later upgrade gives a 30% tech power recharge bonus if you stay near it (along with 2%/sec repair of the turret).

E: Oh, also, additional ranks of a class (earned through packs) add additional points as well as cosmetic options, so it's a bit unclear to me how many total points will be available to spend. It looks like 4 extra points at rank 2, a cosmetic option at rank 3, and another 4 points at rank 4. Not sure how it progresses beyond that.

Can I max out my skills like SP or is it back to doing a build? The mode feels pretty jank at times but I'm so glad I can play MEs multi again. The increased mobility is so welcome and I've already fallen in love with the Infiltrator again.

Skills max at 6/6/6/6/1, 6/6/6/5/3 or 6/6/6/4/4 so you still have to do a build. You also have to max out the class with cards this time up to X to get all your skill points. Max at level 20 with just the base rank 1 kit is 6/6/5/2/0 or something.

While I was poking around to find the skill point numbers some guy on Reddit commented saying he'd already dropped $300 on points to open premium packs, what's an extra $40 really?

It took three wins of Silver to earn a Premium Spectre pack in ME3, from my rewards so far maybe 6-7 if you can consistently clear Silver for the new Andromeda equivalent, what the gently caress!?

What's the deal with loot boxes? You want to buy the cheapest ones so the next tiers don't contain bad items? How do you know when you've got all the stuff from the cheap boxes?

I'll probably drop $20bux on currency, when can I open those sweet sweet premium packs for max value?

If it's like ME3, you can tell because you'll have all the basic weapons and characters maxed out. Weapon at X, all of the color customizations for Human Vanguard 1, etc. Maxed out characters/weapons were removed from the drop pool, increasing your chance of getting something completely new.

Look under collectibles, you'll find a handy list of every card there is to get and how many card upgrades you've got for each. Everything that can rank up tops at 10.

Set it up as private, get everyone you want in, then go into settings and kick it back over to public. It'll fill the lobby, or it can also fill while underway. So far I've seen the lobby fill near instantly.

Buy the cheap ones till you max out the starter stuff then move along to the next tier.

Two Finger, you might want to mention the app Apex HQ - available for both Android and iOS devices- buggy and laggy like the main game, but it lists what is available for MP so far.

Under the "Prestige" tab is a 'Collections' section. It looks like it lists all the unlockables there: Characters/color tints, weapons, mods, and equipment (what was previously called gear- e.g. the Adaptive War Amp).

Oh, and Xbone GT is Rummskull.
