I have not done any of the multiplayer yet, but I was looking forward to getting into it this weekend. I'd like to play with some fellow older gamers. How do I go about connecting with y'all? I friended the AFOF ME3 on xbox, but I am unclear of what to do next.  If someone wants to friend me, my gamertag is solomsr. I'm pretty new to all this so any help would be appreciated, thanks!

You are going to get your ass kicked sideways playing a level 1 character on Silver.  Better get into a match with three other level 20's so they can carry you becase youre gonna die.... a lot.

Very cool, count me in!

Guess I'll be playing Silver and Reaper enemy type all weekend! :)

 

Good thing I like fighting Reapers... they may not be the easiest, but I think they are the most fun!

  The Commendation Packs will contain one of the following guns at random: N7 Crusader Shotgun, N7 Eagle Pistol, N7 Hurricane SMG, and N7 Valiant Sniper Rifle.

My luck i'll get the f'n shotgun because it's the only gun on that list I wouldn't use because that's just how i roll O_o  The Victory pack if the community kills 1 Million Brutes seems like a pretty tall order, you get what... 5 or 6 per match?  It'll be itneresting to see how it goes, too bad they don't have a real-time counter up on their facebook page.

 

Anyways lets Rape some Reapers this weekend!  I think i'd opt for picking the map I want and the Reapers and not worry about the 25% bump for going unknown/unknown.  I want to fight them on a map with some room to move.

I've got damn near every gold weapon except any of the sniper rifles. I just know I'm gonna get the shotgun, cause it's the only gun type I don't like to use.

 

If you only get the gun from this event, will they give it to you at the max level?

I managed to complete the challenge 3 times so far, and each time was brutal. Only one of those times was a full extraction, playing with the 2O2P crew.

The one that worked best was the Firebase White map. It was one of the maps in the demo.

I'm going to be back on tonight to try.  I jumped in and got a few attempts with some fellow 2o2p'ers last night, but didn't quite make it.  I'm going to stick with it tonight until I can get it done!

I have probably done reapers on silver 25 times in the last 2 days with full extraction most of the time. With the right party and team it is a breeze in Firebase Whit. When we were running 3 engineers and and infiltrator we were taking down banshees and brutes in under 5 secs. It was quite laughable. It was ridiculous. When we switched up our classes later it was not so easy. I think it has something to do with energy drain and incinerate working together cause I was getting a ton of tech burst kills. Even with randoms yesterday I only failed silver once. 

 

Then because we were kicking ass on silver we tried gold again, got to the end of wave nine, so we were close. Maybe tonight we can pull it offf

Last night we managed an extraction on Firebase Goliath? That big outside one with the satellite dishes and silver building/base higher up.

But I think Firebase White might be a bit better. Even though Goliath gave us lots of room to move around, it also gave those Ravegers long sight lines to fuck us over (I think Ravegers are worse than Banshees).

 

Another power that seems to work pretty good against Banshees last night was Decoy! If she triggers on it, she'll just stand there beside it until it goes away. Gives you tons of time to shoot her titties off :)

Good on you both, I'll be looking out for you tonight.  Are your GT the same as your usernames here?  The only guy I have that appropriate for Silver is Adept lvl 19.

Firebase White and Goliath seemed to be the best maps for getting this challenge done.  White is just a really well designed map for getting out of trouble and you have an overwatch onto where they spawn so it just makes things easier.  Goliath is a really big map so you can move around a lot and you have overwatch into their most common spawns as well.  The harest thing is when you hav eto stand in a circle and wait for 4 minutes especially against the Reapers because they're so aggressive.

Definitly want to start running some Gold now, all my characters are Level 20 and I have most of them now too just missing both the Krogans.

 

Also the Infiltrator was a great class for ensuring extractions, just run to the circle cloaked 10 seconds before the clock hits 00 and you're assured at least 1 extraction to complete the challenge.  I must have done that at least half a dozen times over the weekend.

Yep, after doing it a couple of times and knowing what to do, it became a lot easier. Yes, Gold is the next thing I would like to conquer. BTW, has anybody found out if the community killed 1,000,000 brutes? Can't find it anywhere as of yet.

I posted this in the Halotards and couldn't find any takers so I went alone.

 

Big mistake. Wave 7 once, not bad for a random team with no mics.

 

I was checking the 2old2play Halo friend of friend tags all weekend but struck out. I'll make a post in this forum looking for friends. Please add me. I've got a sentinel, engineer and infiltrator all in the high teens.

That's too bad, i hopped into a game with the "Westies" last night and helped them secure an extraction.    Randoms suck, half the time i play with randoms on bronze we fail O_o

Ya me neither.  TO play gold requires leaving the bad habbits you form in bronze and silver and figure out how to play gold effectively.

You can't do random/random becauses you need to use the appropriate bonuses and loadouts for a specific enemy.

Then you can't necessarily play the character you want, you needt o play the character best suited for the map and enemy.  Three engineers and an Infiltrator are suppose to be bad ass against reapers for example.

And everyone needs to be leveld up, four 20's would be preferable but certainly no one under lvl 18.  I laugh when i try and gold in public and i get into a room of all sub 10 ranks, i laugh and leave.

Power combos are key as well.  If you can't combo with a pair of your own powers you need to partner up working together.  Working together in general is a must in gold.  You have to be lose enough that you can revive someone quickly but not so close that one brute running thru takes out the whole team.

 

This week I'm playing gold.  Bronze is for leveling up, Silver is good for learning what works and what doesn't against toughter enemies.  I've got all the characters except Krogan and all my classes are 20, got some good guns, have +1 on rockets and medis.  So it's time to lean to play Gold properly.  I'm sure there will be a lot of failure at first, closest i've come so far is wave 9 on gold.  I just need the right mix of teammates to join me both in skill and appropriate level 20 classes to bring to the battlefield.

I played Silver all weekend and whether I was with randoms or a party I think I lost 3 matches in total and I think I played about 50 games. All the rest we passed at around 22-25 mins with mostly full extractions. So yes, it is time to focus solely on Gold. rpeople having problems on Silver you are doing it wrong. You need to be equipped properly or you will fail. A level 10 Vanguard with a Avenger 2 and Mantis 4 is most likely going to end in failure. You can get away with that shit on Bronze but you need to know wtf you are doing to have a chance on silver and gold. MAKING SURE YOU HAVE THE PROPER GUNS FOR THE PROPER CLASS IS PARAMOUNT. If you have a Widow, yes I know its awesome but dont use it on a fucking Krogan soldier.

 

 

Other than that, basically everything Tank said is true regarding gold.

 

You cant just play whatever class you want, you need to go in and play what is necessary versus whatever enemy you have decided to go against. Like what tank was saying you need to stack powers accordingly depending on enemy type. Tech and Biotic explosions rape enemies fast. Also if you roll into a Gold match as an Asari with a Mantis 4 and Shuriken 5, GTFO. To use the Asari properly on Gold for example you basically need a +200 cooldown so you can spam the shit out of your powers for crowd control. Use the weapons for your class that you should be using or you are wasting not only your time but the time of others in the party.

 

Also everyone needs to go in with max medi gel and missiles. Make sure you are using your weapon and armor bonus packs, AND it is VERY key to use the appropriate ammo bonus for the appropriate enemy. For example on gold versus cerberus you should  have armor piercing rounds on.

 

Main thing above all is to communicate and stick together. No asswhore Vanguards charging into the enemy spawn or pulling solo bullshit tactics. Stay together or die.

 

 

 

 

FYI   I have been working on a video series and big ass forum post regarding Gold and will be posting them shortly.

One other strat i thought of would work for getting a successful extraction on wave 11, i'm just not sure about achievement credit.  Anyway the idea is your infiltrator goes to the extraction zone and just keeps stealthing while the other three people go to the farthest point away from the extraction zone to draw the bad guy sthere.  Fight fight fight, die.  As long as the Infiltrator extracts, everyone gets money, xp.

 

What I don't know is for the Unwavering achievement if you get credit or not for a GOld finish if you're dead at the end but you get a successful extraction.
