A new operation, a new rare gun, and new telemetry. It’s a big week for Mass Effect 3 multiplayer!
Operation: PATRIOT (Sept. 21st – 23rd)
Cerberus continues to put pressure on our troops, hindering our fight against the Reapers. Our allies have committed their top military units to target Cerberus’ most valuable assets: their Atlas Mechs.
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.
Squad Goal Success: All squad members awarded a Commendation Pack.
Allied Goal Success: All players awarded a Victory Pack.
We’re also excited to announce a new rare weapon that can be unlocked for multiplayer: The Argus Assault Rifle (previously only available in single-player).
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.
But wait! There’s more! We also have updated multiplayer battle telemetry for you to sink your teeth into. Enjoy!
