Mass Effect 3: Operation PATRIOT Success and September 25 Multiplayer Balance Changes

Surprisingly, even with the release of Borderlands 2 last week, Operation PATRIOT was a success.  Look for your Victory and Commendation Packs later today!

Though the Multiplayer Balance Changes for this week haven’t been confirmed yet, the preview says:

Piranha Shotgun
– Clip size decreased from 8 to 6

Carnifex Pistol
– Encumbrance increased from [1.0-0.5] to [1.2-0.7]

Update:  Wow, lots of changes this week!  For a full list, click here.

As expected, the Piranha got a clip size decrease. ¬†I just tried playing with the nerfed Piranha and while it is still a good gun, it’s not a killing machine anymore, unfortunately. ¬†Better master the Reload Cancel skill if you want to keep being effective with the Piranha! :)

Another major change this week is that the Battlefield 3 Soldier is now an unlockable character (rare) in packs! ¬†This is great for people like me, who never bought Battlefield 3, but I suspect some people might be upset if they got the character as an “exclusive.”

Among other changes, about half the pistols got weight decreases, which is excellent. ¬†I may start using pistols again! ¬† I’m particularly excited about the Talon and the Paladin …

What do you think of the new balance changes?  Let me know in comments!
