    Here's a reason for more Typhoon action! Or wait, maybe some Argus? Turian Havoc here I come!

    No! Krogan Soldier? No! Turian Soldier! AWYISS.jpg! Marksman HOOO!

    Welp, in any case, it is a good reason to stack up points for some AR's to get the challenges going.

    I KNOW! TURIAN SOLDIER WITH AVENGER! Ah yea, I'm so smart!

    I have now played about 15 silver random games in a row. Why does everyone either pick Reapers or Cerberus? Since I came back and started playing ME3 MP again I have not once got geth or Collectors because every game I join(even with random on) the host has it set to one of the two I mentioned.

    Is this the new thing now or something? Like how back when I played everyone picked Geth for gold.

    Collectors actually take skill compared to the other races on the same difficulty. I like it, but others apparently don't.

    Geth are a pain because everything knocks you back, not sure why silver/gold wouldn't play them though as no insta-kill attack

    Just got the striker assault rifle and am walking around on a Batarian soldier with it. I feel like this:

    Collectors are 100 times more difficult than any other MP enemy race. They have so many abilitys that can fuck your group up on higher difficulties and I too hate them with passion.

    Seriously they have those possessed abominations that when killed explode in a massive explosion which is mostly insta-kill, they too have those damn annoying Scions with their blast that basically one-shots you on gold/plat, then they have that Praetorian that grabs you for an insta-kill even if you are 100km away. Then all those Drones, Generals and so on.

    So yeah Collectors are a pain in the arse unless you play on Bronze (they are annoying there too) and this is why most ppl. tend to not choose collectors on gold/plat.

    Well geht have the huge advantage of no insta-kill thats true. They are perfect to solo on my Kroguard tho because the attacks don´t stagger me but if you don´t play a Krogan then they are annoying.

    I remember doing random platinum once and we got collectors. To our surprise, collectors were easier on platinum than they are on gold. We even extracted in the end.

    You get the other races mixed in, so yeah.
    Marauders and other infantry are often more dangerous than the "bosses" because their auto weapons just hit so hard, fast and accurate.

    Had a Centurion bug out on us last night. Became immune to gunfire,direct melee and powers. He was also the last guy standing so he was just in full out aggressive mode. It was pretty hilarious watching everyone run for their life and then him chasing them with his stun blade relentlessly and unmercifully. One guy even tried a missile launcher to escape his wrath. He managed to die though once he started chasing me since Batarian Soldiers have that thorns ability and it would actually hurt him thankfully.

    So I was going through my MP characters and found I had a turian havoc I had forgotten about!

    I played him and realized I don't like him. I told him to cover and he's like "nah, gonna rocket jump that way!"

    The easiest way to kill enemies like that is to push/kite them off the edge of the map

    Got tired of pugs being dumb in gold/plat(though I don't really play plat anymore...too much stress), so I decided to be kroguard(I mainly play vanguards now, or the jetpack turians) and just not die, ever. Feels good man. Charge and melee all but banshees, brutes and Praetorians.

    So much carnage...

    Edit: Not the actual skill named carnage, just, so much juggernaut mode.
