    I'm probably wrong about them consuming eezo then?

    Yeah, I was under the impression that eezo wasn't strictly a fuel. It gets used to build engines, then they can manipulate the eezo to generate power.

    I remember from way back in ME1 that one of the big complaints about the Normandy was that the huge amount of eezo used in its construction, which allowed the Normandy to have stealth functions by acting as a power sink, would have built a slew of small engines or an engine for a big-ass ship. I've never heard of eezo actually being consumed, just ships needing to land and use planets as power sinks from traveling.

    The N7 Shotgun is like the third or fourth best shotgun. The Pulse Shotgun is probably the best, especially with higher-end mods.

    I just, I still like the Eviscerator so much. The GPS is so heavy

    well, if it releases energy when a current is run through it, we might reasonably surmise that it must decay in some way

    but they've already broken the rest of the laws of physics so I guess it's no huge thing

    They probably wear out over time. But eezo is the Unobtanium magic that the setting runs on.

    It's like the Katana, but half as heavy and twice as accurate. A very good, very solid shotgun. Excellent for Vanguards because it won't weigh you down. Roughly as good as the Scimitar if you're a Charge machine.

    I've been able to pull it off with randoms, Spoit. I would really recommend doing Firebase White or somewhere remotely open. Avoid Firebase Glacier- place is a fucking deathtrap.

    yep. I found with Glacier it's very easy to get cluster fucked. Too many obstacles get in your way and it's very easy to get ambushed in later waves.

    What, really? I freaking love that place. That was my first successful Silver extraction against the Reapers. Tight quarters were made for Biotic Explosions and Nova, and as long as you're not in the LZ there are a few choke points that are easily defensible so long as you keep your head.

    As a Manguard, which shotgun do I want to be vetting the most? Currently I'm kind of bouncing between the Scimitar and the Eviscerator. The ones that I have past that are waaaay too heavy for what I do at the point in the game I am at. Are there any lighter alternatives to those two going forward?

    Until you get the CLaymore to level X you're not going to get much use out of the bestest shotgun, so be prepared for that. GPS is much the same. The Disicple weighs less than the Katana but is exactly as strong, that one is great. For power-based Vanguards, the Scimitar, the Disciple, the Katana, and an upgraded Eviscerator are pretty much top tier.

    Edit: Wait is this a multiplayer or a singleplayer question?

    I do appreciate that the game lets you increase your power recharge speed more and more in the single player game. By the end of my initial runthrough I had a Claymore V and a +118% power cooldown bonus.

    That's good enough for me.

    Maybe I'm just not getting with good group/team builds. A lot of times the ramp area/lz are ends up as a quasi fortification point and at later points we have ravagers/banshees/brutes coming from all sides and there is nowhere to go.

    But I'm playing with randoms also.

    Though I discovered that it has been tweeted to the @masseffect twitter guys about a billion times already, but I regret nothing sending it to them again.

    In other news, when is the N7 weapon for surviving silver being unlocked? And will it be forever stuck at level I because you can't upgrade it from packs (which is something I am wondering about).

    I actually liked that.

    The worst part on glacier for me is the computer hack at the bottom of the stairs in late waves. Ravagers sitting up top and banshees and brutes coming down to disrupt your meager console cover, marauders and cannibals on the other side with gunfire and grenades...that place is never pretty.

    it's the cerberus-y map with the snowy background

    I actually think it's one of the easier maps on silver; the little area platform near the shuttle that the ladder leads up to is a nice chokepoint on most waves with 1-2 corridors that all the enemies in a wave have to funnel into

    the only level I really don't like is that chemical plant one, but it might just be that I'm not used to nagivating it

    Gonna finally sit down and try to put the single player to bed tonight.. I did a base vanguard this run on normal, and have actually managed to die a few times (which is probably a good thing, and definitely not the experience I had similarily in ME2, but that could've also been due to my switch of platform.)

    I swapped from xbox to PC, since I heard it had multiplayer, and I just never use my xbox anymore.. Add me to the origin list in the OP if possible... After tonight, (hell probably tonight if I get some invites soon) I'll always be looking for MP when I'm logged into origin.

    Also, another thing, who else here picked up the ME: Infiltrator? I broke down and did it since my GF and i splurged on a new ipad, and it took me a while to get used to the controls, but I'm kinda digging it. I'm still trying to figure out how's best to use the intel...
