    Want cloak on the lowest possible cooldown for my geth rogue
    honestly weight is not a big concern for infiltrators

    it's one of the few classes that can effectively use the claymore

    cloak gets a recharge bonus proportional to how much of the duration you're not using, so even at -200% you can get it to a short cooldown as long as you aren't keeping it on for a huge amount of time (even down to 3 seconds if you just use it to boost a shot)

    I just played a game with a Krogan Sentinel using a geth pulse rifle with a scope and stability mod. Maaaaybe I was being a little over the top with regards to people playing wrong, but this is too much.

    I'm now picturing the snooty upper-class intellectual Batarian soldier who harrumphs condescendingly at his lower-class squadmates who insist on punching enemies like ill-bred savages.

    "We have guns, you know. It's like punching people, but with bullets, and from a longer distance away so they can't kill you as...you're not even listening. Why do I bother? This is why Batarians get no respect, you know."

    Heh, with a double monocle

    Well if you feel like dealing with the widow then that's the right gun for damage, but I personally hate the widow

    it just handles weird for me and the reload is a million years long

    It's a little easier to use if you take the use power while cloaked and have something that can make them stand still for a second, but then you arent getting the damage bonus

    I like the valiant because any enemy the widow can kill in one shot the valiant can kill in one clip, and occasionally it'll take less than the full three shots and you can damage something else before having to reload

  • OrcaOrca Registered User regular
    The widow is ideal when you want to keep your head below cover for as much of the match as practical.

    It's not so ideal when you have a horde of dudes rushing you at close range.

    What is with pubbies rushing the enemy on Silver? This is not a complicated strategy: "Engage, then fall back, repeat".

    When you rush into three Pyros, kill one, then get knocked down, I'm not coming to get you..

    Banshees can be charged if you wait for them to do other animations. But it's very risky and very easily to get it wrong.

    I totally agree on brutes, though I do ocassionally get 1HKOd, it typically goes smoothly.

    If--and I grant you it's a big if--you can get 2+ dudes alternately heavy meleeing them, you can interrupt banshees and brutes in their one-hit-kill animation.

    It's safer, obviously, if you've got 4 krogans meleeing them at the same time. 8-)

    OHKOs in ascending threat order:

    brute-->atlas-->banshee-->phantom

    however, phantoms have so little health that one krogan heavy melee can kill them as soon as their barrier drops (and often before that, especially if in rage mode)

    I've honestly never had much of a problem with phantoms

    unless you count not knowing they're anywhere nearby and getting ghost murdered

    Maybe that is the problem

    I personally put banshees higher, but that is because one erratically flashing about trapped me once and I couldn't escape and

    phantoms have killed me more, but not with their ohkos

    they're a real problem for some loadouts

    I've died to them as an engineer more times than I care to think about, usually because I've gotten flanked, but almost as frequently because they just shot me to death with their stupid little absurdly powerful gun

    but if I'm playing a sturdy class (sentinel, anything krogan) with a decent shotgun (especially Geth shotgun, which it's easy to stunlock them with)

    fuck 'em

    I'll wreck their face

    banshees and phantoms are close

    but if you just go by the threat of OHKO, I think phantoms are higher

    since a banshee will do a lot of other shit

    but a phantom is pretty much always trying to get in there for a OHKO

    now if we're talking general threat assessment, that is, if both were in a room, which one I'd be more concerned with?

    well, I'd still kill the phantom first, because less health

    but the banshee is the one that's going to have my finger twitching to d-pad up

    So, today I learned that I can be startled during multiplayer games. Particularly, when a Banshee teleported from the ground level on Ghost and ended up behind me inside the main room where the snipers hang out and immediately OHKO'd me.

    I also learned that Banshees are evil cheaters.
