Mass Effect 3: Operation PATRIOT and the new Argus Assault Rifle

This weekend’s (21-23 September) N7 Operation is pretty easy for the Squad Goal, though it requires some coordination with friends. ¬†Click here for full details.

Squad Goal: Extraction on any difficulty with all squad members as the same non-human race. Requires 2 or more players in squad.

Allied Goal: Kill 600,000 Atlas Mechs on any map at any difficulty.

Special Circumstances: Escort Drones travel speed reduced.

Bioware also just released a new assault rifle for the multiplayer:

“The Argus is a high-powered rifle favored by senior C-sec officers. An excellent close-range weapon, its bursts of fire ensure ammunition conservation during lengthy conflicts. Other law-enforcement agencies across the galaxy are adopting the Argus as their standard rifle, as much for its intimidation factor as its suppression power.”

Ok, as cool as a new rifle is, it better be damn good if they’re nerfing the Piranha next week! ¬†Unfortunately, the Argus is too heavy, has too much recoil, doesn’t do enough damage, and has a slow ROF. ¬†It’s heavier than the Saber, does the same DPS as the Avenger, and has half the ammo capacity. ¬†In summary, it kinda sucks hard.

Also, this is no substitute for a new DLC … hurry up, Bioware!

And there is also a new infographic on the multiplayer game – haha, Firebase White accounts for almost a third of the games played, ofc:

It’s funny that the PC’s highest N7 rating is only 13,000 – I have at least two Xbox friends who have over 15,000 N7 rank.

Will you be participating in Operation PATRIOT?  Let me know in the comments!
