Mass Effect 3: N7 Weekend Operation ONSLAUGHT


Operation ONSLAUGHT (Dec 7th –  9th)

Event Description: Losses of industrial capacity have caused shortages of specialized weapons on several fronts. Population centers must be reclaimed for us to rebuild munitions factories, and N7s will lead recon and assault teams to prep the way for regular infantry to take the territory.

Individual Goal: Earn 75,000 points of damage using an assault rifle on any map at any difficulty. Points are cumulative across matches. Extraction not required.

Reward: Commendation Pack

Ok, am I the only one who thinks this is going to be ridiculously easy?  I wonder why they didn’t do a goal associated with the new character release as usual?  Anyway, for me, it will be the Harrier IX (geez, I can’t wait til I get that stupid gun up to X!) with the Turian Ghost Infiltrator.  Pretty sure it will only take one match on any level to get that many points – in fact, I don’t think I’ve ever scored less than 100,000 points with that character and weapon setup.

BTW, not to get all sappy on you guys, but I really appreciate all the comments and the people adding me on Xbox LIVE to play some ME3 with – it really makes my day to see so many like-minded ME fans and to not have to play as many PUGs :)

What are you using for this weekend’s operation?  Let me know in comments!

  1. I’m telling you, they’re getting easier every week… I’m going to make this harder on myself. Instead of the Harrier-Ghost, I’ll think I’ll try something like Avenger-Drellguard. Bring on the Glacier/Collectors/Platinum! :P

  2. I wish I had it on X-box! I’d love to play a game or two with you. Either way, your advice has given me a huge boost in my scoring. Plus it’s nice to follow such a pleasant, concise writer instead of trying to make sense of all the jabbering on most forums.

  3. I still need to play a game with you, but im always on at different times or have a full party :/ im not the best but im sure we can have alot of fun :)

  4. Been playing this game for several months now and never bothered to look into what Tech Combos were or how they worked. Thinking about going Paladin but don’t know if that’s the best choice for setting off combos. Anyone know what the best class and setup is for tech combos?

    • Paladin is great for tech combos – you can pretty much set off one tech/cryo/fire explosion after another with Snap Freeze and Incinerate. I also like the Turian Ghost Infiltrator for fire explosions with incendiary round III equipped on my Harrier assault rifle and spamming Overload.

    • Oh, and another great thing about the Paladin is if you spec its shield/melee for fire damage, you can cause a tech explosion after you Snap Freeze an enemy and put down your shield in front of it. Great if you’re camping in the box on Firebase Rio on Platinum :)

    • Yes, like she said, the N7 Paladin is the best class for Tech Combos, since it’s the only one capable of setting and detonating all 3 types (Fire Explosion, Cryo Explosion and Tech Burst). With that build you’ll be exploding everything all the time.

      I recommend going 6/6/6/5/3 for maximum Tech Damage. Speccing into Shield Mastery for more melee is not that useful since the N7 Paladin lacks damage reduction buffs other than Energy Drain Rank 6 (Armor Boost). So this means you can’t go berserk like a Krogan or Batarian. Even with only 3 ranks of Shield Mastery, your Melee will already be quite high, enough to kill foot soldiers with a single bash. Just use a light weapon and put a Melee Mod.

      I wrote a N7 Paladin Guide in BioWare’s official forums a while ago, if you’re interested, check on that: http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/347/index/14899554

  5. Tried leaving my GT in a comment earlier but my phone was having issues, so anyway its Roguedog1363, was hoping to play a few rounds sometime if you’re interested.

  6. I love your blog! I send your updates to squad I play with on PC every week.I also play on Xbox 360 (started there first). Feel free to add me to your list GT on all systems (PC, Xbox and PS3) is fatcat013.

  7. i concur with Greta T. your blog is awesome. Thanks to your updates i have been able to really step up my scoring and get the best character build possible. Would love to have a platinum match or two with ya sometime. GT : AZZVERSE

  8. I would love to have more people to play with on xbox. most of my friends play call of duty. so anyone who wants to play should add me. i play mostly gold and platinum. GT: Nativex420x605. Mainly because i hate playing with PUGs
