Mass Effect 3: N7 Weekend Operation HEARTBREAKER


Operation: HEARTBREAKER (Feb 15th-17th)

Event Description: The number of Banshees on the battlefield has suddenly increased. We believe the Reapers are improving their means of creation, and we need to recover as many Banshee bodies as possible for analysis. Use cautious tactics – and try not to get your heart ripped out.

Individual Goal: Earn 20,000 points killing Banshees.

Reward: Commendation Pack

YES YES YES!  I love killing Banshees.  I can’t wait to see how many spawn on Gold/Platinum at once for this challenge, even though you only really need to kill two Banshees on Platinum to meet the 20,000 point requirement.

I know people swear by biotics against Banshees but I’m actually a big fan of the Armor Piercing Mod used in conjunction with Overload and Incendiary Ammo.  Takes down a Banshee really quickly.  And most people already know this, but if you stand on stairs or a ramp, a Banshee can’t grab you and instakill you.  If you’re a Krogan or Turian with Stim Packs, you can just stand in one place and kill them.

Happy Valentine’s Day! :)

How will you do this week’s mission?  Let me know in comments!

  1. Wait, I could have sworn they fixed the ‘slope = no instakill’ thing? Can anybody confirm it? I haven’t tried it in a long time.

  2. I’m really not looking forward to this one. I’m not a very advanced player; my friends and I will do OK on Silver, but we’ve never even tried gold. I don’t think Banshees are worth more than 1500 points on silver (1500? 1100? I can’t find the stats), so we have to kill a LOT of them for all four of us to complete the challenge. And there are only so many Banshees per game… :(

    • Just kill them with Missile Launchers. Took me 2 games to complete the Challenge on Gold, just exploding them with Tech Bursts as N7 Paladin and occasionally Missile Launcher when there was two/three Banshees stacked.

      You could also always go with a DoT/Burst class (Asari Infiltrator or N7 Shadow) while using a SMG with Incendiary Ammo to get some easy kill-steals. =P

  3. Oh, you have to get the killing blow? Damn… I’m so unlucky with that, usually some other player manages to land the final blow even though I did most of the damage…

    By the way m’am, add me on LIVE, BINGBANGPOE.

  4. Awesome ramp/step tip on banshees!!! Never knew that can’t wait to daWminate today after work now! Gt RoccoFantastico add me!
