Reckoning DLC

Post by BleedingUranium on Tue Feb 26, 2013 12:38 am

Characters

Collector Adept: Dark Sphere (?) / Dark Channel / Seeker Swarms
-Collector Captain without the horns. Assumed to be a Leviathan Thrall. Ultra-Rare.

Geth Juggernaut Soldier: Siege Cannon (like Prime's Pulse cannon) / Hex Shield (like ME1 Geth shields) / Geth Turret
-Smaller Geth Prime. Cannot run, dodge, take cover, or be sync-killed. Its heavy melee sync kills enemies.

Talon Mercenary Engineer: Cain Trip Mine (like Recon mine, laser trip, no scanning) / Armour-Piercing Arrows / Concussive Arrows
-Is Zaeed, without the white shoulder piece. Three Cains can be active at once. Light melee fires three arrows from an Omni-Crossbow shotgun style, heavy melee fires all three at the same point. Both Arrow powers run off grenade ammo, standard arrows can always be fired.

Krogan Warlord Sentinel: Tech Armour / Electric Hammer / Biotic Hammer
-ME2 Blood Pack Armour. Cannot take cover. Hammer can be charged with either of the above effects like the Omni-Crossbow.

Alliance Infiltration Unit Infiltrator: Tactical Cloak (with Shotgun damage) / Repair Matrix (if downed while active, will get back up) / Snap Freeze
-EDI's Alternate Appearance Pack body. Very agile in terms of dodges and move speed.

Turian Cabal Vanguard: Poison Strike (like Tela Vasir's Charge) / Nightshade Blades (like Ballistic Blades but grenade based) / Biotic Focus (like Adrenaline Rush)
-Not quite Nyreen's armour, closer to standard Turian armour. 30% of her melee damage is applied over time.


Weapons

Assault Rifles: M7 Lancer (UR) / Adas (Rare) / Spitfire (UR)
Shotgun: Venom (UR)
SMG: Punisher (UR)
Pistols: M-11 Suppressor (Rare) / Executioner (Rare)

-Lancer has overheat like the Particle Rifle, true to ME1. Spitfire slows movement. M-11 Suppressor is a black Carnifex fitted with a suppressor, it fires faster, does less damage, but has a larger headshot damage multiplier than any other gun. Chakram Launcher is not in the DLC, but could be added via balance changes.


Mods

Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle, and Shotgun Ultralight Materials.

SMG and Pistol Power Damage.


Gear

Geth Scanner: Adds Hunter Mode overlay and allows vision through walls.

Batarian Gauntlet: Replaces that character's heavy melee with the Batarian heavy melee, at 800 base damage.

Gotta love it when more than half of the weapons are ultra-rares...

Everyone can feel the pain that is the in-game-lottery-machine for a looong time.

Having a maxed out manifest (at the moment anyway), I can only imagine how frustrating it's gonna be for people with unlocks from the previous DLCs yet to obtain to get the new stuff.

But yeah, excited to try all these new things out, the ME3MP has been awesome and I'm happy that it has gotten so much free support for a full year.

Immunity to sync kills? Wow. I know which class I'm looking for first.

Lol I'm sure the lotto will pay out first then nothing followed by eventually something. Keeps people coming back for more. So I don't get why they included the collector as a playable character? I get why you say leviathan thrall but all the leviathan thralls never looked like that.

The trailer shows him in Levi's mind room with Levi orb coloured eyes. And how many Leviathan thralls have we seen? One Brute?

All looks good, but if this really IS the final multiplayer DLC, then I was hoping for a bit more.

At the very least, a new objective mode or two, and some new hazard variants.

Don't get me wrong, I'm in awe of the time, effort and support Bryan and the rest have put in, and it's made the very first iteration of Mass Effect multiplayer a true contender to the AAA multiplayer franchises out there.. but I expected them to really go out all guns blazing.

Same here, for the final DLC just adding new characters and weapons is a bit of a let down. I was really hoping for more normal maps or hazard maps. A shame they only did a few of them, they are quite fun.

No kidding. Collectors on Hazard: Giant was the first game I played after downloading Retaliation, and I was in total awe.

Although Me3 had some truly epic moments in it (fighting under the Destroyer on Tuchanka being a personal favourite), out of all the ME3 DLC, single player and multiplayer - I think Retaliation was by far the best.

I love the new stuff, but I'm slightly underwhelmed as well.

The Alliance Ilfiltration Unit (the EDI-bot) is awesome. So good to have an ability that gets you back up automatically after going down. Who needs medi-gels anymore?

I happened to name her "Twin Peaks"... Whistling

And I am just sitting here, waiting for Origin to get the pack.

Though I hope I get the female Turian. I have really fallen in love with their design Love

Have only tried out the collector and the talon merc so far...have all the others unlocked...will play through them one by one. Can't wait to try the Geth and the Krogan, but "EDI" has a no medi-gel pick me up - that's is awesome - now if you tell me she regenerates like a Vorcha I will truly be in love!

Good start, got the Turian Cabal in my gift pack, and then, oh joy, the Geth Juggernaut in a PSP. Thanks, random unlock system! Very Happy

Wow, I love the Geth Juggernaut. "Someone is firing on me? Who dares?" XDDD. Also, with a red Juggernaut my team always makes friendly fire against me with Geth as enemies. One poor guy even launch me one of his cobra missiles...

Here's his bio:

"When the Reaper-killer known as Leviathan fought the Collectors, it severed their connection to Harbringer with a thrall device. Most Collector forces died as a result, but a few survived. Now, these rare individuals fight for the memory of their people, a proud race broken by the Reapers."

Now read the last sentence again. Read it carefully. They're not talking about the Collectors. Bioware's writers are masters at this sort of thing.

Mine was the other way around, Geth Prime followed by Turian Cabal in a pack. It was exactly the two I wanted so that was great.

The Geth Prime is...a juggernaut. Holy lord nothing can touch you, especially not when you are using the heavy melee. And that portable shield is just gold in a fight with the Reapers. Husk, Brutes, Banshee's charge right through it and get zapped even as Ravagers pound the shield to no effect.

Turian Cabal is interesting. Incredibly mobile, but requires some getting use to in form of aiming the charge and knowing when to charge and melee. Love the heavy melee, just shreds the enemy completely...and it is a Female Turian Love
