Honest help for noobs...

Since the inevitable gold challenge flooded gold with some lower level players, here is some friendly advice. Everybody is new at some point and the game itself is fairly new so its all good. If you are playing bronze just ignore this and do whatever, but if you want to jump into gold (or even silver) please take this to heart

1. Get a mic and actually use it.

2. Please, sweet baby jesus, no soldiers or vanguards. Your guns will not be good enough to make a soldier worthwhile and you will need to stay with the team which pretty much eliminates vanguards. Infiltrators or engineers are the best noob classes IMO

3. General rule, no shotguns. If you are close enough to use a shotgun, you are dead.

4. Use your powers, they are better than bullets from an avenger 1. I promise

5. If all three other players are doing the same thing, you should do that as well

6. Dont crap on my gamer rating and give me a bad review because you got kicked for being n7-12 with a level 12 battlefield soldier. You deserved it

 

honestly no sarcasm or elitism. I am always up for playing with new guys and I am not some jedi master mass effect dude. Just trying to help.

stay in cover, you can't "run and gun" effectively on gold.

for objectives:
targets - let them come to you
devices - stay where you are and let your infiltrator go
hacking - stick with your team

I would say not to use a shotgun unless you've unlocked the Geth Plasma Shotgun and it's a reasonably high level, since it weighs a ton. Otherwise, for the most part, it's better to just stick to a heavy pistol and spam biotics and techs. Having the lowest possible cooldown is vital, unless you're using an Infiltrator. Using your powers is key for Gold level runs.

remember guys, this is help for noobs.

obviously your super specialised character you've spent weeks working on in 50+ gold matches will do well, but you're hardly a "n00b"

I have GPS II. Works just fine on gold for my geth infiltrator.

I am totally aware that this advice will not be taken, but if I can help one child (sob...sniffle) it was all worthwhile (bite lip and fight back tears)
