The husks are definitely the hardest part on the higher difficulty simply because they rush you where all other types of enemies try to take cover usually.

I had to bump the difficulty down on the level where you have to hold them off for 5 minutes while the planetary defense gun is powered up.

For my insanity run I used the AOE warp+fire to get their shields down, then I used some buff biotic aoe spell to blow away all the now shieldless husks... this works most of the time, but you gotta get the timing down with the cooldowns and such.

This. I had to spec into AoE warp for that reason alone. I hated not having a huge single target warp, but those ****in' husks, man...

I can't help being analytical. I'm sorry you're too simple-minded to grasp these concepts.

Yep, same. In fact, I had to reload the game very far back and go through a tremendous hassle to even get the AoE Warp ability by resetting my squad talent points with some third-party software.

There was one section where two Scions and about 10-15 Husks just rush you when youre in the barrier. That **** was impossible without an AoE move from your teammates and maybe you too.

Hence my earlier statement about the "ability users" vs Soldier.

So as a solider, you all-out sniped the scion in the background from full health to nothing, even as the husks (two waves of 4) are already charging, then you pistoled the husks down, and then all-out sniped the second scion down, while the husks were still pouring in, huh?

Wow, I really want your sniper rifle. It's so weird, because three of the four assault rifles I have are higher damage than all of the sniper rifles AND they take far more advantage of full talented Adrenaline Rush, which sniping doesn't.

That's quite the feat you pulled off there. It's almost as if you're full of **** and played an Infiltrator on lower difficulty, and NOT a Soldier on Insanity.

So weird!

You clearly care way too much about computer games. To whine like a ****** about a computer game when most people on TW have grown up says to me that you haven't got a real life and don't know what casual gaming is.

I bet you're fat.

I always play on normal. I care more about the story than actually finishing a game on hardest difficulty. That being said, infiltrator assassin sniper rocked. With all upgrades I was dropping Harbingers in couple headshots <3

too bad you can't customize your weps as much as in ME1. ramping up the sniper rifle so it overheated every shot + assassination did joke damage

also i'm an analyst in real life and i think *****ing about balance in a singleplayer game this much is pretty sad. is all that aggravation really worth the picture of a badge for the achievement?

That's so weird.

Because I remember the first scion coming into view from the center/right as the first squad of husks climbed up. About 15 seconds later, the second scion came into view from the left. Of course if you don't kill the husks within ~5 seconds they are already on you.

I loaded the game up and sure enough it was just like I remembered it, which is nothing like you claim.

So weird! Your game must be a super special edition or something. Gee golly, I guess mine is different then.

Yea, I'm sure you're real analytical.

So anyways, back to the point: I don't play on the hardest difficult for some microsoft gamerscore nerd achievement. I do it because I don't feel enjoyment if it's too easy.

With that said, the game I'm paying $60 for (same as casual console retards), should have some level of effort put into my platform. Removing weapon keybinds is kind of a big annoyance when they make "ammo" so scarce for a particular class that relies 100% on ammo.

It not only implies that they didn't do any testing, but that they clearly don't give a **** enough to do any testing. If the PC version is going to be ****tier, make it cheaper.

i havnt played this game since my first playthrough

which was whenever it came out, like 3 months ago?

sorry i cant recall the with complete accuracy the details of a single enemy encounter out of 20 hours of gameplay

the point is: bioware games are easy even on their hardest settings. mass effect 2 is no exception

the only thing i remember about you is that you were a huge idiot and terrible at tribes, so your e-behavior in this thread isnt really suprising

yah im rly bad at teh tribves games. u got me ther!

It's so weird that you were so sure before, the exact scenario, scripted event, scions, husks and even how many bullets you used on each with each gun. Jesus Christ, that was quite the memory after three months.

And now you're not so sure?

p.s. You played on normal with Infiltrator.
