Effects of Mass
« on: May 27, 2008, 02:50:35 PM »

Mass Effect for PC came out today, right? Time to plunk down $49.99 + Sales Tax and load that up.

So, like, I'm replaying Mass Effect with a brand-new Shepard, this time an Infiltrator.

What the fuck good is the sniper rifle in this game?

Is your sniper rifle skill track maxed? Are you using the mark X spectre rifle? Are you using triple high explosive ammo mods? if you answered "no" to any of these questions, sniper rifles are not for you!

How to play a sniper:

- Open the door to the room with enemies and fire your pistol into it until it overheats, hide against the door.

- Take potshots until they stop sticking their heads out from cover.

- Send your party into the room with the enemies and order them to just stand there.

- See step 2.

The sniper rifle was good for the few times in the game with open terrain fighting. Nearly all of those times were out and about on planets (read: times where the Mako aka DEATHMOBILE was very much the easier choice). Plus, it saved my ass near the end of the game, with those five fucking rocket turrets. I don't even know how one is supposed to handle that without a sniper rifle and XXXplosive ammo.

Infiltrator was the first class I played. I hardly used the tech skills at all, though, so it sort of felt like a waste.

Huh. Actually found the Sniper Rifle useful during the Bringing Down the Sky sidequest.

If by "near the end of the game" you mean [spoiler]climbing the Citadel Tower[/spoiler] then how I did it was ... be a Soldier.  Throw some +Resistance armor mods into the right suit of heavy armor, and suddenly everything is doing like 1% damage tops.

Once you have some points in it, to steady the aim, I found the Sniper Rifle to be excellent in any mid-to-long range fight.  Basically, if it's too long-range for the assault rifle to be accurate, the sniper rifle is excellent.  Even just a long hallway is a good opportunity to crouch behind a crate and pop some heads off.

Playing Mass Effect I got the "Kill X enemies with Sniper Rifle" before I got any other gun unlock achievement. And after that it took me like a hundred or so enemies to get the shotgun one.

I think I hit a glitch in the game. Not anything serious, or, hell, even that big of a deal, but kind of obnoxious:

I'm playing renegade, and I just finished Feros. For some reason, [spoiler]none of the remaining NPCs are talking as if I had just doomed the colony. Which I did.[/spoiler]

They reacted that way the last time I played renegade, though.

Right. Do you have Mass Effect right now? Play it.

Like, right now.

No!  Play default Shepard first.  Kill everything that moves with your choice of gun.

Throw & Lift are far more interesting when given to teammates. Every conflict quickly becomes Duck Hunt RPG.

No no. Lift then Throw. On the same enemy. Outdoors.

He'll literally fly off miles into the sky.
