The Falcon still sucks due to the rate of fire nerf.

I have not tried out the Javelin, tough to do when you got an upgrade widow or black widow.

I still don't know if the Wraith can compete with a Geth Shotty for DPS. Especially since the Geth shotty is easier to come by and likely upgraded.

The Paladin was already beastly with it's better than upgraded Carnifex damage but the weight increase makes it questionable. The differance in recharge times, especially on my Adept where I prefer to use it, is noticable. The recharge on the Adept is crucial and using a power efficiancy amp instead of power amplifier amp is a big deal.

The Talon<Carni/Pali... Short range shotgun pistol vs medium range, acurate magnum? Give me the magnum all day!!!

I still think the DPS on the GAR is too low even on my GAR VI. Maybe some extra power use for that Soldier or Sentinal job will make up for it? Then again, use a Sabre, Paladin or Geth Shotty.

 

Bonus grenade damage is always welcome! That Lift Grenade has a huge blst radius.
