Also, Project Overlord. Wow.

I think I tried to read way too much into those missions but it was VERY System Shock from what I observed and remember after sleeping.

YES. Finally got a Widow and the Salarian Infiltrator. It's like a delicious sandwich of energy-draining death.

Also got the Raptor, haven't given it a whirl yet.

The Raptor X is very nice to use. Its like having a long range Mattock assault rifle.

Yesterday I slapped on the Harpoon with the Geth SMG again and I was leading most of the lobbies I played in. Its way too much fun lmao

Just picked up the Asari Justicar, which means all I'm missing now is the Geth Infiltrator.

Also, I really hate tooting my own horn ( not really ), but damn I am a good Salarian Infiltrator. Every Gold match I play, always the top score, even above other Infiltrators. And that's even when I'm constantly running around reviving my other teammates because they can't seem to stop getting surrounded.

I love you, N7 Valiant.

I unlocked the Asari Justicar and the Krogan Vanguard today. The Justicar is pretty good at support and I find that if you have a teammate with warp, you'll be setting off biotic explosions practically every chance you use reave. The biotic field is neat, no real complaints.

Krogan vanguard, I haven't used it yet because I just unlocked it and took a break. I finally solved my connection issues so I played a good amount of hours with my friends.

On a side note, the Hornet is actually a really deadly weapon if used right. It kicks like a mule but the damage potential, if your bursts are on point, is insane.

I'd just like to say that the Javelin is the best sniper rifle. Walls? What the fuck are walls? I just shoot the purple things and they die. Doesn't matter what's in the way.

Now if only the RNG would give me a fucking Geth Infiltrator.

Javelin's good for Bronze / Silver, no doubt. It can one-shot pretty much.. everything, right? I remember one-shotting Centurions and Nemeses, and through cover, so yeah it's pretty great. The sound of the gun made it feel powerful in my hands, it was satisfying. Unfortunately, it's just not as viable on Gold. The shield gate doesn't let ANY damage bleed over from shields, which means you'd have to shoot a single target twice with the Javelin, and that doesn't really fly.

Exactly. I love the Javelin too but it's not as viable in Gold. In Gold I'd take the Black Widow, Raptor X, or the harpoon launcher purely because it can cause bleeding AND it reloads pretty fast for a single shot rifle.

Btw, the Krogan Vanguard is a MONSTER. You can't stop that thing unless you die during a biotic charge and glitch.

I don't find it any different from the Widow in terms of output; it's only drawback is that it's a rank 1 weapon atm with a shitty amount of reserve ammo, even with the spare clip mod. Compare this to the Widow III I have, which has 17 shots in reserve with the spare clip, and has the same penetration effect without the scope.

Couple of things:

- Victory Packs for the Resurgence weekend are out. You get at least one of the new characters, so check yours and see what you got.

- "Resurgence Packs" are now available in place of the Prem Spectre Packs. They cost the same 99k.

- Multiplayer Balance Changes, including a lot of SMG buffs.

How long will the Victory Packs stay active? I just sent my 360 off for servicing and it might be a couple of weeks or more before I get it back.

I also got the Krogan Battlemaster. For the fourth time.

Which is PERFECTLY FINE with me because I decked him out in Red/White/Blue and scream "AMERICA" every time I do a biotic charge and it is wonderful. Biotic Explosions are his 4th of July fireworks.

So I spent all of my cash getting a few spectre packs, NOT A SINGLE NEW DLC THING. No new characters, no new weapons, total sadness.

Even worse, I tried to play for a bit, and boy was it an awful experience. Kickvotes being thrown out constantly for seemingly no reason, at least one drop out in EVERY SINGLE MATCH by round 5, and nobody, bronze, silver or gold, managed to finish a game.

I don't whether it was just a bad day for me, or that in the week or two I haven't been playing, the PC community went to absolute shit. I can't do it justice just how awful those 2 or 3 hours of playing were.

The only thing I'm missing out of the resurgence gear is the Geth Engineer right now. I have all the other guns and classes.

So far...

Batarian Soldier is actually pretty cool, I love the blade power he has, it's like a fucking arm shotgun. Batarian melee is also pretty damn brutal. I'm actually very surprised by how much I enjoy playing as these guys. Sentinel is pretty much the same opinion but more punch smashy less army bladey.

Justicar I've really come to like, must promoted my adepts so I'm going to focus on being more pure offense instead of defense this time around for something different.

Krogan Battlemaster is pretty self explanatory. Be manly, headbutt things, destroy all in your path. Fuck carnage. I am a man and intend to murder things with my face.

The geth infiltrator is honestly my least favorite so far. Hunter vision is great, but the loss of shield power combined with the geth's already horrifically low health is just terrible. I think my issue is that I like playing shotgun infiltrator, so I promoted and will definitely build him up to be my sniper infiltrator this time around. That will probably work better.

Harpoon Gun is sex, the SMG is side arm of the year, and the other gun is very eh. I like it, and I want to like it, but it's not that great. I did wreak some havoc with it on my Krogan sentinel though.

Somehow managed to get my Kishock Harpoon Gun to X. It was already IX before the Resurgence Packs came out.

Yeah, it's weird- I got like 3 or 4 Premium Spectre Packs in a row that were Kishock Harpoon Gun and the Graal Spike Thrower, together. No lie. My Kishock is X now, and my Graal is IX. The game REALLY wants me to use them I guess?

But yeah I'd be happy to play with anyone here if you want to do Gold. Or Silver, really.

Been running around as a Claymore Geth Infiltrator. Holy fuck, is it ever fun. And effective, just so long as you don't wade into a bunch of dudes without an escape plan, which you should always have since Hunter Vision should be going at all times.

Also got a Javelin II. I finally have enough ammo to actually use it.
