Mass Effect 3: 9 October Multiplayer Balance Changes


Well, the big thing this week is that you can now make Cryo and Fire Explosions WITHOUT having to kill the target!  Woohoo!  I may need to try out the Paladin again in this case … There are also a bunch of new weapon mods available:

– Assault Rifle Thermal Scope
– Assault Rifle High-Velocity Barrel
– Shotgun Omni-Blade
– Shotgun High-Velocity Barrel
– Sniper Rifle Thermal Scope
– Sniper Rifle High-Velocity Barrel
– Pistol Heavy Barrel

And a bunch of changes that weren’t announced earlier with the patch/DLC:

– Geth Pyros can now stomp players who are downed
– Marauders can now stomp players who are downed
– Atlas now moves faster
– Atlas rocket will add a small damage-over-time effect on players that prevents shield regeneration for a short time
– Geth Prime drone now attacks players
– New map layout for Firebase White and Firebase Glacier
– Wave changes to Geth faction to account for new Geth Bomber enemy
– Wave changes to Cerberus faction to account for the new Dragoon enemy
– Weapons in the lobby show their rarity as a border around the weapon
– Can now see the last pack you purchased in the store
– Consumables now show statistics in their descriptions
– Destroyer’s missile launcher now shows “Hawk Missile Launcher” in the kill feed instead of “Missile Launcher”
– When 3 of 4 players are ready in the lobby, there is a 20 second countdown before the match automatically begins
– Promoting a character preservers name and appearance, and doesn’t assign any talent points
– Carnage power can now set up Fire Explosion power combos

See the full list here.

  1. I really like the new FB White, the change make it larger.
    The 20sec timer/player is really cool, don’t to wait the last a**hole anymore.
    And the stats for ammo, it’s really good, need it for weapons too !
    All the others change make fix some bug, but create new one… Endless story !

    And, do you found new godmod glitch, because i can solo gold( with easy objective or i fail it) but for one of the new challenge you need to solo one Platinum game and i can’t do that. Thanks !
