weapon mods

Thought it was fantastic that they actually appear on the weapons in-game.


Some noobish questions

1: Do any of you guys know if it's worth maxing out the commons, or should I just start shooting for uncommons and rares?

2:How much of a difference do they make in game? Is it extremely noticeable?

I'm assuming this is for MP, right? Basically, I'd advise you to find you niche class and weapon, buy a few Vet packs to have a decent load out and characters, and when you feel comfortable go the the SP's and PSP's. I wouldn't invest in recruit packs at all.

I've dabbled in gold and platinum, but looking at my manifest(gt is rlee1988 if you want to see) I don't really have much at all. Think I've gotten almost all I can out of the recruit packs except for the upgrades. I should just stop getting the recruit packs at this point?

Yeah, they're not going to do you much good as you practically get commons and uncommons in SP and PSP's so you're kinda working on all three in a sense. Plus, it's better to have more efficient weapons and a diverse selection of characters.

That I did not know. Also, any tips on getting some good gear? I've gotten a couple lvl 1s, and 1 lvl 2. I initially thought you only got commons from recruits, uncommons from vets, rares and up from sp, and psp.


any idea how to get any of the promo weapons?

Promo weapons are exclusive to achieving the accomplishments. This weekend's is 75k points via anything that burns; carnage, flamer, incinerate. Good gear usually comes with SP's and PSP's. I'd stick with SP's for now as their cheaper. The uncommons have good weapons like the Mattock and Phaeston. Other than that, it's all up to the RNG.

Awesome. I unlocked the geth trooper so the burn damage is going to be easy. Thanks for the help guys!

Well you don't have almost anything and it makes sense.I will say what I believe it is right.Buy only Veteran Packs until you have maxed your uncommon.I did that and I even got 7 Rares and 1 UR.Got half the N7 characters too.This was in August.You can try to go for Spectre Packs if you want but I don't suggest that.

Ok, I think that's what I'll do for the time being then.
