    Try hacking it right after it goes for a melee on a player?

    just tried in a platinum match. Atlas can not be hacked at all with or without shields. All geth units can though.

    Did something funny with hack just now. Hacked a pyro at spawn and it completly pwned 2 ravagers.

    You had ravagers in a geth match?

    Platinum spawns all kinds of enemies, not just your main enemy.

    Yeah when I first saw a platinum tutorial video on youtube I was like "WTH, was that a Phantom?? I thought he plays against Geth??" then after a short while I was like "HELL Banshees?? What kind of sorcery is this??".

    Then someone told me that on platinum all kind of extra enemies show up even if you only play against Geth

    Regarding the tease Mike Gamble promised us a few days ago:

    Chris Priestly



    Created about 14 hours ago

    Any sign of The Tease?

    "We're not likely to be talking much about the next DLC till around the middle of next month when the content is better locked. Obviously that could change and be a little earlier or later, but as a rough guideline, mid-Feb or so."

    So I am 10000% sure that this DLC will get released at the beginning of March because it is the last DLC which BW Edmonton (the ME creators and developers) EVER do !!

    All future DLCs (minor ones) and ME4 will be developed by BW Montreal (they created Omega DLC).

    The 1 year anniversary for ME3 is on March 6 for the US and March 9 for the EU so be ready for a brand new DLC by then

    March is too long of a wait

    Well think positive Feb is a short month anyway and it could come late Feb too.

    I am looking forward to it nonetheless but I would like it sooner than latter as there really is nothing to do in ME at the moment (at least for me)

    If I earn a gold metal but the mission fails, will it count?

    I just tried bronze solo on my geth engineer and got killed on the extraction wave

    And what's the best map to solo anyways?

    The challenge states that you need extraction.

    firebase giant or firebase white, they are my personal favorites anyway.

    How can you be happy from beeing finished with anything involving ME?

    "I'm done with my chores, Yay!"
    "I'm out of ME stuff to do, Duh!"

    More appropriate...

    No it doesn't. The Challenge is to earn a 75 kill with one weapon type in one match.

    My friends, we have a problem... Gravath just told me today that he isn't planning to come back to this thread anymore, this is clearly what Mayas tried to warn us about… Let’s us all send him a PM showing our love for him and force him to come back to us.

    Yes but Orissa implied they were asking about the weekend challenge since there is no medal for soloing a map. Soloing was just brought up because it is the easiest way to get the medal if you play silver and bronze since sometimes it can be hard to get 75 kills on bronze if everyone else is trying for the same.
