I'm pretty sure the Crucible was supposed to harness the dark energy of Haestrom to destroy the Reapers

Oh goodie! A change to a weapon that nobody has, and yet another fairly significant enemy health buff. Thanks, Bioware!

As long as they didn't increase Phantom health and shields, then no problem.

And the Atlas gets even more health again? Sheesh.
The Turret buff also looks very unfun.

If only the Collector Rifle buff hit SP.

That was supposed to make Cerberus tougher?

That turret's gonna drop you like a fly on Gold.

SP is pretty darn easy as it is, even on the higher difficulties. It doesn't need any buffs.

Guardians and Nemesis needed those buffs. Hell, Guardians need barriers, imo. "Hey guys, don't worry, we'll hold the lin-"*Gets 1-shotted by a Talon blast aimed in the general area of their peep hole*

Hell, it's to the point where I'd stop and toy around with them by either Pistol-whipping them or trying to get a ring-out kill with pull. Atlas health buff just makes them giant targets that break less easily and Turret buffs just make them more annoying.

And am I the only one who thinks the Phantom's Palm-Guns need a nerf? You know it's bad when they hit almost as hard as Atlas missiles...and I thought they were designed to be CQC enemies.
