    The Banshee though has a charge up time so it really is the only practical sync kill to interrupt with stagger. The phantom can be stopped by a stagger but you have to pretty much have the shot/power already traveling in order to save someone. The phantom is stopped by destroying the sword which renders the sync kill impossible. And basically turns the phantom into a acrobatic turret with a barrier.
    Eh, no. The Praetorian is even easier to avoid and the Atlas is fairly simple, yet harder than the Banshee.

    The Brute... probably damn hard, much akin to the Phantom and the Scion... eh, I've only been grabbed once and then I was released by a stagger, so... saying the banshee is the only practical synch to avoid is just wrong.

    I'll kindly ask everyone to move the conversation away from moderation and back on to the game itself.

    You can avoid any sync kill. But not every sync kill has a practical chance for team mates to interrupt.

    Which is lucky for me considering I play Silver or Bronze.

    Are there any advantages on completing a Co-op mission on bronce-silver-gold-plat?

    Helps your EMS in the single player, but that's a moot point since the extended cut.

    Speaking of which, this weekends challenge was ridiculously easy. Took one mission at FB Condor.

    AND I got an N7 Valkyrie II!

    Am I the only one getting this issue:

    I suddenly can't shoot until I do a heavy melee. Click/rightclick, light melee, all won't respond until I do a heavy melee. I thought my mouse died for a moment.

    Once I do the melee, I'm fine. Not sure what triggers it though.

    The Phantom.. probably the Brute... and that is it. Well, I am not entirely sure about the Scion, but youtube footage showed that execute to be lengthy.

    You are telling me that 2 of 6 synch kills is a problem?

    Heck, nowadays, I never really die to the Banshee and Praetorians anymore. I get shot by something while grabbed, killing me before the synch kill, making me revivable. :|

    Don't get discouraged by silvers because the jump in difficulty is shockingly high from bronze. The jump from silver to gold is nowhere near as bad, at least I didn't think so.

    I used to do silvers with level 1 chars, was never bothered with bronze.
    Used to farm a lot gold reapers for quick points...never really had much of a chance to play platinum since I started to get dc'd over and over in games since then.
    I wonder if that crap is more stable now >.<

    I actually found it the other way around. Bronze > Silver, the increase in difficulty was barely noticeable, but Silver > Gold was kinda brutal.

    Reapers on gold is a farmfest if you got the right classes, but i do agree that silver > gold is the biggest jump.

    Platinum is easy to farm on firebase rio because of the banshee safe spot, but i feel a nerf incomming for that soon!

    No you're not. I don't know what kind of glitch is it, or what causes it but it happened to me over many maps and on more kits than I can count.

    Perhaps it has something to do with melee animation failing to complete, but it isn't exactly tied to trying to hit with melee either. It's like every key stops responding save the one for melee.

    If you loaded the save prior to the assault on the Cerberus base, you should check your terminal.

    I think the same. I was looking for a random bronze game a while back and I then entered a game that just ended wave 1. I thought that it was Bronze until I saw the mission overview at the end.

    I was really surprised that this was silver and not bronze. Those guys that were in my team weren't that good either but it was almost as easy as bronze nonetheless.

    I get it sometimes too, REALLY sucks while playing the fury as I can't melee atall, have to spam going in & out of cover to fix it.
    Seems to happen only when being shield spammed by a Volus...
