    I think EA forgot that the whole "you need a persistent internet connection for games" idea has to work both ways.
    Also, crusader. Not a fan so far.
    A co-worker of mine feels the same way, since apparently the reload takes forever.

    "If there's three guys, here, there, and over there (imagine the hand gestures), it's impossible to get all of them."
    "No it's not. Hit them with Charge, they get knocked back, fire the Crusader."
    "But then you have to take a day to reload."
    "Nope. Charge the second guy, knock back, melee, blow Barrier, melee again. No reloading, all dead, no problem."
    "You forgot the third guy."
    "No I didn't. He got taken out by the Asari with the sniper rifle."
    "What?"
    "You know that would happen."
    "Fine."

    What, he'd rather spend a day charging up the GPS or reloading the Claymore? Those are both respectable guns, but the Crusader does a shit ton of damage up close or at range, there's no charging involved, and you get more than one shot per reload.

    If he's really concerned about reload time, tell him to equip a Carnifex or Paladin as a sidearm.

    EDIT: And wait, he seems to be under the impression the Crusader is a one-shot gun. That's not the case.

    And now I get to give him shit for something else.

    I have no idea what gun he normally uses. We just happened to be talking about the Commendation packs, and I was saying that I'll probably get an Eagle, because that's the only gun I don't want. Because I'd immediately switch back to Infiltrator if I got a Valiant, and my Krogan Vanguard would love the Crusader. Haven't found a home for my Hurricane yet, but assuming I ever get a Justicar, it'll probably go there.

    You know what element of the Mass Effect universe I want to see more of

    The Volus Dreadnought Kwunu

    with its buff Volus version of Captain Kirk
    Spoiler:
    I figured the Turians (Bacause they basically own the Volus) were like "FINE, you can have one of our dreadnaughts. But only one!"

    Actually I'm pretty sure it was designed and manufactured by good old Elkoss-Combine. I definitely remember reading that all of its armaments are state of the art Reapertech and can easily match the firepower of other species' older ships.

  • Skull ManSkull Man Registered User regular
    it was a joint venture

    and the volus basically own the Turians, not the other way around

    I just shared it with the lead buyer here at TG and now he's just sending me quotes of things that your mom has said while cackling in his office two doors down.

    Situationally, yes. It's a good sniper, it does great damage up close or far away, it penetrates cover without a mod, and if you're melee specced (which if you're a Krogan, why the hell wouldn't you be?) you can cover all range bases, and guardians aren't a threat without you needing to add a piercing mod.

    man, I don't know

    personally, I think that the GPS is a great sniper that does great damage up close or far way while also being a fair amount lighter than the crusader

    based on my own experiences, I would say that the crusader does mediocre damage at all ranges and is hard to use at close range and even harder to use at long range

    Nah

    When you zoom in, you get a tiny little x on the screen

    The slug always goes to the center of the x, no matter what your accuracy is

    Really isn't that tough

    Also the GPS doesn't go through walls, and it's iffy if the tracking actually works when an enemy is in cover

    statistically, the crusader seems comparable to the saber, but a little worse in most ways

    considering the saber is only good but not great, it doesn't seem all that impressive

    Surprised they didn't increase the max grenades evolutions for cluster and lift grenades

    cluster grenades don't really need a buff

    More to bring them in line since frag and inferno now can have 4 max while poor ol' lift and cluster are at 3

    Don't really need to tinker with anything for cluster otherwise

    when I used them they were situated squarely on the corner of useless and mediocre

    never killed anything, and I never saw them actually lift either

    have they been buffed since then

  • CorporateLogoCorporateLogo The toilet knows how I feelRegistered User regular
    They only lift the scrub enemies without armor or shields

    They can be handy once you get the hang of tossing them behind a guardian

    The best use is probably for setting off biotic explosions

    Give the Crusader a shot. It automatically has armor piercing qualities (freeing up one mod slot, and I always use the damage mod), and unlike other shotguns it doesn't spray its shot everywhere. Just one solid slug dead center of your crosshair every time, which means you can actually snipe with it. The firing rate is better than the Claymore and it holds more than one round at a time, so you don't have to reload every shot. All in all it is pretty badass. It's not a Valiant, but at least it isn't an Eagle.

    I was sitting across the map on GWG last night with a Crusader

    One body shot took down a hunter's shields

    The followup headshot (which didn't need a reload) blew its damn head off

    Kroguards get Barrier, which basically does the same thing as Lift Grenades when it's detonated.

    really the important part of this is the krogan prefix

    I just realized that if they keep doing the every-other-weekend event thing, it's going to take ~100 weeks to max out all those weapons

    So

    I guess we just shouldn't expect to ever do that

    Unless they release a pack in the store after people lose interest in ME3 MP that costs 4 billion credits or $20 apiece with exactly one ultra rare
