    I can relate to that. I promoted my infiltrator because the game would rather disappear in some CIA detainment camp then give me another sniper rifle--any sniper rifle.

    I've resolved to let it sit until the game changes its mind. Seems reasonable.

    I was really underwhelmed by the Phaeston. Scoped it's not so bad, but you have to pound on even trash mobs for a couple of seconds to put them down.

    Yea... I saw a bunch of people using the Phaeston and I figured I'd give it a go and it was... so... bad. I only have a IV or V though, so maybe it improves dramatically vs the Geth Rifle later?

    It's an upgrade in every area over the Avenger, except in weight and reload time.

    The Geth rifle does papercuts for damage, but is pretty much a laser-accurate hose.

    I'm not sure what I'll end up using as an AR in MP. I used the chakram launcher for SP, and that's not in MP. Loved the chunk-chunk-chunk thump-thump-thump as you fired and the disks exploded.

  • WassermeloneWassermelone Registered User regular
    The Phaeston is great on the Turian Soldier with all the stability and accuracy upgrades.

    I dont really have any of the high rate of fire ARs though.

    It's going to take ... forever to get that Valiant X, lol. I love that weapon, but I've actually been using the Black Widow a lot lately. Because of its natural armor pen, you can get away with not using the penetration mod. That frees me up to use the extra magazines mod, along with my extended barrel. It's a little slower than the Valiant, obviously, but that thing hits like an absolute truck. I've been scoring around 90-100k on average in Silver games recently, and with the BW, I score around 60-75k. So, that leads me to believe it's a little less effective overall, but I still love that gun.

    [edit] I guess what I'm getting at is that I don't think the Valiant is that much better than the Black Widow (and the Widow, since it's comparable to the BW). They require some different strategies, but they're all really effective. I wouldn't stress too much over the Valiant, if it doesn't unlock.

    Do we know what the chances are of getting an N7 item in a normal Spectre pack? I mean, my jaw kinda fell open when I got the Paladin in one, because I thought they were challenge weekend only sorta things.

    I've got the standard AR up to a V, and nothing else has gone higher, so I just keep using it.

    It's lightweight, and satisfying to shoot. Feels good on the Turian Sentinel.

    There's N7 rarity items (e.g. Paladin) that you can get in Spectre packs. Then there's the N7 named items (e.g. Valiant) that you can only get in Commendation packs.


    The chance of the first one is low (5-10%) and the chance of the latter is either 100% (Commendation) or 0% (everything else).

    The Claymore is the heaviest of Shotguns and was what I was using. My cooldowns were not significantly slow as far as I remember. Then again, I darn near killed anything I came in contact with in one shot, so it was a non issue. Using the Armor Penetration and +Damage mods.

    In the beginning of ME3, do we know what city that is (where Shepard is being held and meets the Alliance council)? Is it just generic future human city, or is there some lore or some mention of it in the game? I don't recall if that information is in the codex or not.

    There's N7 Rarity (Ultra Rare) and then there are the actual N7 event items. As I've been told, I shall tell! They're two different things.

    I got a Paladin too from a Spectre thing though. :p

    I suspected that (cuz you know, Bioware), but where is mentioned that Vancouver is the capital? Do they say it in the game at some point, or one of the previous games? A lot of the details are locked away somewhere in my head.

    The one thing I really, really hope gets patched soon is the import bug. Seriously. I had to work hard to make my Femshep into an attractive example of Homo sapiens, and it's even tougher to recreate her from scratch. Every time I think about starting my renegade run I decide not to because maybe they'll have it fixed soon and I'll waste my time making a bad facsimile of Jane Shepard, but now I'm halfway through the game and don't want to start over.

    Agreed. Compared to the Widow it's just way better. A little less damage, but that's way more than evened out by its three-shot magazine. Not only do you still get the high damage, but you're more efficient against enemies that would take up an entire widow magazine, like a marauder, which you can kill in two black widow shots, and you're better off against assault troopers/cannibals/geth troopers, of which you can take out three per magazine if you don't miss.

    Can't compare it to the Valiant though since I don't have it yet. I've read that it's supposed to be inbetween the Mantis and the Viper, and I think both of those aren't bad at all. If it's even better than the Black Widow then I can see why people consider it the best Sniper Rifle.
