    Playing singleplayer after multiplayer is very weird. Even on a good server I play with a noticeable amount of latency - having my abilities hit enemies instantly is very disorienting.

    I chime in quite a bit with the Avenger, but it represents a minority of the damage dealt. It's more to finish guys off so I don't have to waste a cooldown on killing a single mook.

    Hmm think I'll give my paladin a shot first in that case. Little heavier, but I kinda like having the high weapon damage.

  • OrcaOrca Registered User regular
    If you can keep your cooldowns >= 180%, it's all good IMO.

    There's no point in using a sniper rifle with the Salarian Engineer. If you want to use a sniper rifle, just use the infiltrator. That way, you can cloak, then energy drain, then shoot, which gives you a huge boost to damage. Stick with pistols, I can't stand using the predator because you have to click too much and you can't be as accurate. The carnifex is probably overall better than the phalanx, but the higher weight will hurt for a while.

    That said I still think that using a sniper for Salarian Winfiltrator is a waste. With proxy mine, energy drain, cloak with 2 powers and a pistol, you're extremely versatile. Sniping can be great, but there are lots of situations where you can get quickly get overwhelmed.

    This is when you turn on cloak and run away.

    It's your greatest power.

    Using a Viper with the salarian Engineer worked alright for me. You can drain enemies defenses with energy drain and then finish them off. If you're just up against defenseless enemies you can spam incinerate and focus on the next target already.

    If I host a game and make it public, will it eventually fill up with people queuing? I left an open game sitting for about 3-4 minutes this morning and didn't get anyone in - wondering if it was just coincidence.

    The ME3 Viper occupies this weird space where the ROF is relatively low, but it still isn't quite a single shot weapon. I just can't get used to it.

    Granted, I haven't tried very hard...

    You can make pretty much any class/weapon combination work, but there are weapons that are just better suited to different classes. In the end you should play as whatever is the most fun for you, though.

    It should. Alternatively you can add everyone on the list in the OP, I find that usually three to four people are online, at peak times 10-20. What's your Origin handle?

    Agreed. I just don't know what other weapon to use as a salarian Infiltrator. Maybe I should go with an assault rifle or a pistol like on my human Engineer, whom I play up-close more than anything.

    Even with a total recharge of only +160% the Carnifex is great. I think it'll go to +200% with level X but even at I it works really well. The phalanx is pretty good too.

  • ShenShen Go placidly amid the noise and haste Registered User regular
    I would suggest people find a gun they like and make a build around that. I love the Phalanx, but I carry it on so many characters I'm getting pretty sick of it. Working towards a Raptor for my Salarian Engineer, the Mattock for my humans and Turians, Carnifex on my asari, that sort of thing.

    ...Really shouldn't have promoted all my characters, sigh.

    I did so enjoy making your screens bounce with constant explosion spam after that.

    Vwoop boom vwoop voom vwoop boom vwoop boom

    Although it was evident that I had by then forgotten how to roll when shot at, as opposed to intercepting bullets with my face.

    You were too busy staring at the carnage left behind after yet another one of those biotic detonations went off, sending geth flying in all directions. Which is totally understandable.

    I like the valiant on the salarian engineer/infiltrator because it's accurate enough unscoped that you can dumbfire it at short range if you get in trouble.

    I got the crusader in my commendation pack; not what I wanted but I figured what the hell, I'll mess around with it in some bronze games. Who is it meant to be useful for? It's too heavy for anything that needs to use powers, but it seems to favor middle distance more than short range... krogan soldiers, I guess?

    Also, do the melee damage bonus mods always apply, or only when you have that particular weapon drawn? I'm just wondering if it's helpful for krogans to carry around predators with the melee damage mod

    Also the scoped carnifex is really versatile because the pistol scope is only 2x. Which means you can use it to snipe somewhat competently (and to lock on powers at significantly longer range), but you aren't a fumbling retard if you try and use the scope at short distances.

    Maybe it's just me but the Valiant doesn't seem to do much damage firing from the hip. Enemies that should be nearly dead from one shot of it seemed to shrug it off pretty well.

    they seem to bug out sometimes, I dunno why. Sometimes a room will transfer host to me when everyone leaves, and it never seems to fill back up.

    The widow feels the same. Often when I fire from the hip it doesn't do quite enough damage to kill, whereas a scoped shot to anywhere in the body seems to do the trick. I wonder what's going on...

    Since people are talking about it, when you play engineer is it optimal to have minimum weight so you can just spam abilities like with adepts? Have actually manged to never play that class in my time with the series. Was thinking about using my black widow when I start leveling one or would that be a bad set up?

    You really want something that'll leave you close to 200% recharge rate, at least as a human engineer. It's all about the overload spam, plus incinerate for anything ugly and the drone for either helping locking down people or assisting with your damage.

    Yeah I think I barely ever even bother shooting at stuff as an engineer :P

    But if you're not shooting stuff, you're not proccing disruptor ammo, and then you're not setting off a tech burst with every overload. :D Works wonders on gold.

    Unscoped sniper shots take a damage penalty, I believe.

    Also I want to say that multiple weapons with melee bonus mods don't stack because if my memory serves I was doing less melee damage as a krosoldier when I switched away from my shotgun.

    so my victory pack gave me a shotgun and power boost for one level, and the commendation pack gave me a hurricane? (the n7 submachine gun). I don't use submachine guns though so waste of time promoting two guys I think!

    Got a Hurricane in my pack, figured I'd try it out and discovered it's the perfect weapon fot my Turian Sentinel. Light enough to have decent cooldowns and Turian stability bonuses bring it under control. Once you can control it the Hurricane simply chews through anything in you path.

    I really do love this crazy hand Gatling gun.
