Operation: HEARTBREAKER (Feb 15th-17th)
Event Description: The number of Banshees on the battlefield has suddenly increased. We believe the Reapers are improving their means of creation, and we need to recover as many Banshee bodies as possible for analysis. Use cautious tactics – and try not to get your heart ripped out.
Individual Goal: Earn 20,000 points killing Banshees.
Reward: Commendation Pack
YES YES YES! I love killing Banshees. I can’t wait to see how many spawn on Gold/Platinum at once for this challenge, even though you only really need to kill two Banshees on Platinum to meet the 20,000 point requirement.
I know people swear by biotics against Banshees but I’m actually a big fan of the Armor Piercing Mod used in conjunction with Overload and Incendiary Ammo. Takes down a Banshee really quickly. And most people already know this, but if you stand on stairs or a ramp, a Banshee can’t grab you and instakill you. If you’re a Krogan or Turian with Stim Packs, you can just stand in one place and kill them.
Happy Valentine’s Day! :)
