    You need to use a Legendary Pokeball to get them.

    They do. I'm not sure if it stacks on top of the regular weapon damage bonuses, but if it does you can end up doing about 50% extra damage with Geth weapons. You'll really notice the difference. Pulse Rifle still needs some more work before it becomes a decent AR, but I imagine the Plasma Shotgun and the Javelin become utterly devastating.

    Using the Engineer with a 6/0/6/6/6 build was basically a breeze on Gold and that was only using the Geth SMG. Provided you don't try and fight everything head on you really are equipped to deal with almost anything. Except Reapers.
    I don't know if its just me being bad, but the Reaper Army seems to outmatch the Geth quite severly. I think a lot of this is down the the melee moves instantly stripping away your shields, and without those the Geth are made of tissue paper. That and Ravager fire will down you from full health and shields in a single shot.

    Only thing that really gave any problem was the odd Hunter that would keep re-cloaking so the overload would miss. Then they one-shot you.

    Dude Infil-Geth with a Plasma Shotgun is a beast. I murdered a Geth Prime and I barely broke a sweat.

    Figured as much. I doubt there are many non-boss enemies left standing after a single charged shot. Especially whilst cloaked.

    Hope I can unlock a Geth today. I've only gotten the Asari Justicar, which I'm not interested in at all. Every pack I buy now has a Turian Soldier, but I'm complaining about that. Only a couple more and I've got all his customization options unlocked.

    Unlocked Krogan Battlemaster and Geth Infiltrator in the same pack. Good times. Like the Geth Hunter mode, especially against other Geth Hunters. I don't have as much Javelin envy anymore now that I can just use my Widow with Piercing.

    Since the DLC came out I have got Geth Engineer, Krogan Battle Master, Batarian Sentinel and level 4 Geth SMG. Also the Scorpion pistol, both are really good guns.

    Hey, remember before Bringing Down the Sky when this is what Batarians looked like in the Codex?

    Yes, yes I do.

    This is one retcon that I personally don't mind.

    When Bringing Down The Sky came out I was like "Wait, I thought they looked different" checked the Codex and thought "Wait, I thought the pic in here was different."

    Unlocked the Battlemaster and while it's not a new character, managed to get the Krogan Soldier. I need a lot of practice with Krogans..

    No, I didn't remember that, but I do now that you've posted the picture.
    Man, they looked wimpish!

    I also finally figured out that if you don't have a party of four, but you want to take your entire party into a public match you have to set up a private match, invite your party, and then change the match to public to fill up the slots.

    I had the hardest time getting my party into a game this weekend because all the slots would fill up.

    At a glimpse I thought I was looking at fan art of a Batarian as Mr. T. xp

    Good day for Assault Rifle and SMG fans. Buffs all around!

    As a user of both the Geth AR and SMG, I'm quite pleased with those updates. The Revenant was already good, in the hands of a Turian now it's going to become utterly devastating. A real minigun.

    My Turian Soldier is VERY happy with the Revenant changes.

    Just unlocked Geth Infiltrator with the free Victory Pack! Woohoo!

    Having fun messing around with the salarian Engineer. Not too fond of Decoy, though. Would prefer something like Sabotage.

    So glad I came late to the series and thus missed this. Don't know if I could have taken the batarians seriously while looking like Sid the sloth.
