    Are they that difficult in multiplayer? In single player as a soldier I just use disruptor ammo to take down their shields, then incendiary to finish them off. Have to imagine you can do something similar with a combination of overload and warp plus gunfire to finish it off. I ask because I don't have Gold at the moment.

    I lol'd. Entered in Liara bedroom to see if I could get some le sexy time and every time I moved my character the monitors on the wall would move around, that sure kill'd the mood.

    Not when you move the character, when you move the vision.
    They are REALLY creepy.
    You can get them to turn around to face the wall out of shame.

    They can kill you in one second flat.
    Its close to impossible to revive someone in a turrets line of sight.

    They can kill you fast but its not like they take long to take down. And you shouldn't be resurrecting a player in its line of fire anyways. Thats like sticking your hand into a campfire because you dropped your wedding ring into it. You put the fire out first then get the ring.

    You dont always have that luxury if they start swarming you and you need backup ASAP.

    I see. Is it possible to pop out for a split second to get them to fire, and then hit them while they're cooling down?

    You'd be surprised how often it happens in multiplayer. :P

    The buff doesn't seem that massive tbh.. damage remains the same and the extra shields and and armor can still be punched through with most skills. And the best counter is still to prevent Engineers from setting them up in the first place.

    And yes, you can kill them in between bursts. It's not very efficient, but it will work.

    Backup means nothing if you are dead. If something like a turret can kill you super fast it is better to take it out (or draw its fire so someone else can rez) then to sit there and take it on the chance you don't get killed before your team mate is revived.

    No 2 shot kills on them, and they always pop up when you are dealing with something else. 90% of my deaths have been turrets.

    Having finished some other single player stuff, I decided to create a new Commander Shepard and start again from the beginning. Aside from a desire to play a believable character, rather than a min-maxed one, there really wasn't any further planning going into this (inspiration for background and motivations tends to come while I'm sculpting the appearance and go through the early portions of the game). Anyway, without further delay..



    ..allow me to introduce you to Jake Shepard. (As a side note, all of my Shepards have had a first name starting with a J. So far I have a John, Jane, Jill, Jim, Jessica, Joseph, and a bunch of others).

    Some basic details (think of him as Danny Trejo meets Zaeed):
    -Infiltrator (mostly because I haven't played one in single player for some time)
    -Colonist background and Ruthless psych profile
    -Took Medicine as the extra skill (none of them were really fitting, and about 2/3 were unavailable by default since Jake's not a biotic)
    -Hates Batarians (due to the background), but aside from that he's neither a xenophobe or consider humans to be a superior race
    -Cares about those under his command and those he considers friends. Anyone else is dealt with as is deemed most efficient
    -Follows the chain of command up to a point, but has no qualms about bypassing it if it gets the job done
    -Is not above intimidation and/or brutality to meet his goals, as long as there's no serious consequences to doing so
    -Will generally follow the Renegade route, but without the real asshole choices unless the target deserves it
    -Enjoys the 'finer' aspects of life (booze, women, drugs etc)
    -Probably won't romance anyone in ME1, might go after either Miranda in ME2

    Should be a fun ride.

    I'd say Donovan Hock myself. Don't get surprised if Kasumi jumps around and disables YOUR shields instead of the Mantis' in the DLC.

    Gotta say, that's probably the best use of that facial hair option.

    Also, if you're going renegade you're going to have to kick that Eclipse merc out the window in ME2. I've done that every character, paragon or otherwise.

    That's the one who refuses to talk, right? Yeah he has it coming.

    That, and the renegade option on Miranda's loyalty mission are the two that I did every time.

    Also, so far I'm 2/2 for punching that Quarian asshole in ME3 as a paragon.
