    first you give me a valiant

    then you give me the eagle

    i've accepted that i'll never get a crusader or hurricane

    but please, do me this small kindness

    Possible answer: Outdated numbers from Friday being posted.

    Probable answer: Massive PR fix because someone at Bio came up with completely unattainable number requirments, and nobody caught it.

    Man, Geth on Condor is bad times unless you have TEAM KROGUARD

    Condor in general is tough. We bunkered down the whole time in that one area - you know the one, at the foot of the mountain on the side opposite of the landing zone.

    Feels like a legitimate "hold the line" fight, but dear God

    If we hadn't had two Destroyers and a Demolisher, I don't know what we would have done.

    Meh

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    I got a Valiant IV

    But it's hard to be excited about the Valiant when I have the Saber on my Destroyer

    also the geth shotgun could really use a nerf

    Considering that everyone thought this was gonna be some sort of dumb, tacked on stupid shit I think it's fair to call ME3's MP a pretty stellar success.

    Also the Shadow should get a nerf. Played it for the first time with defensively specc'd Shadow Strike and duration/power usage Cloak, ended up getting like 120k points. With a Strength Enhancer II, that class is the anti-everything-but-bosses.

    Haha I'm kidding don't nerf it, I love this stupid class

    I love it too. I ended up in a Gold game with some pretty bad players and was forced to solo the second half of Wave 5.

    They never even broke my shields.
    Got Crusader III from my Commendation Pack - had actually never tried it before, since I wasn't a huge fan of shotguns until the Piranha came out. Holy crap it's like a sniper shotgun! It has a much lower rate of fire and not as much damage as my Piranha X, but at X the Crusader could do as much damage - but the ability to headshot from halfway across the map with a SHOTGUN is pretty damn cool!

    Try a Wraith or Claymore on a Geth with +25% accuracy from Hunter Mode and a Smart Choke. The shot grouping is conveniently sized the same as a Phantom's head.

    Crusader II here.

    I'm still trying to figure out what build it is I'm supposed to use this thing on.

    Same here, Crusader II. I mean, I'm glad it's not an Eagle and all, but the Hurricane and Valiant are actually pretty useful.

    I was killing Thresher Maws on foot before I knew it was a Krogan rite of passage.
  • gjaustingjaustin Registered User regular
    The Crusader seems like the perfect Krogan Infiltrator weapon to me.

    Has penetration, too. Guardian shields ain't no thang

    I've never found the crusader effective against guardian shields.

    Maybe I should try rolling Batarian Soldier again. With the Grenade Gear and a Power Enhancer mod it seems like he'd be non-stop death, forever.

    the crusader is a single pellet shotgun

    logically it should be the only shotgun that does NOT ignore shield gate

    i'm not interested enough to test it, though

    Wife hasn't had time to go through the campaign mode with her schoolin'. Planning to do most of it next week.

    I ask her, "You still going to play on Insanity?"

    "I think so."

    "It's tough. And you haven't played a Mass Effect game in like two years."

    Yes, that too! I was headshotting Cannibals and the shots went through their armor plating like tissue.

    Hmm, I'll have to try that some time - maybe when I'm more comfortable with the shotgun. It's easy to have fun with them on the Destroyer but now I'm trying them on squishier classes.

    so I've queued up with a group of people whose names are dinosaur themed... o_o

    also, I have a Hurricane VII now.

    That's been available as a regular Ultra Rare for weeks now, though it's very generous of you to offer and I'm sure someone would love a free level in it.

    Edit: Oh you mean in single player

    ugh. just had the worst wave 10 objective meltdown/wipe on my Drell adept ever... doing Geth London Gold, in the stop spot with 120k points up with a 40k spread.

    It was a shaky end of wave 9 and I'd blown a few missiles to pull through... then the stupidity happened at the bottom of the staircase. why... oh why... :(

    I turned the game off in shame.

    edit: I thought the Crusader was some kind of shotgun sniper rifle or something people kept saying before.

    Some Shadow stuff on Platinum. For some reason I was under the impression that I had a Hurricane III or IV, but turns out it's just a I.

    is this you? Did they fix the rank 6 sword mastery with shadow strike, or do you just like using heavy melee to clear armor?

    also, man, I wish I had an acolyte

    Hurricane II. Yes, this nicely balances out the never-gonna-get-used guerilla gear from the victory pack.

    No mate, I'm only any good at playing Novaguards (sorry Ardol, Milds and gang heh). There's a link to the BSN thread on the youtube page. Should have been more clear about that. As far as I know Sword Mastery is still broken. I don't think it can be fixed without a patch.

    I remember when the Valiant was thought to be the only good N7 Prize weapon, with the Hurricane being relegated to the middle of the pack with the Crusader

    No longer.

    Though losing the ability to headshot Geth Primes had something to do with that I'm sure

    Edit: The point is the Hurricane is fantastic, and generally a really top-tier weapon.
