You need better weapons. Gold is very hard with low level or common weapons.


So what level weapons should a person have before attempting gold? I can play silver consistantly now and I want to work up to gold, but I don't want to be a huge burden on my temamates.


I wouldnt say that. You need to have all your mods and a decent stock of consumables.

Ah, yes! I was wondering what would break first! Your spirit...or your body.

You generally will need to just keep moving - as others have pointed out, camping is not an easy thing on Gold and you'll most likely get swarmed by enemies unless you're in a secluded area where they can easily be picked off (like the hallway in Firebase Hydra).

Firebase Giant is quite easy to camp against Cerberus. I've done it quite a lot with a team and it works rather well. However it is somewhat slow (20-25 minutes since the enemies are coming to you).

If you want fast matches TC Geth/Glacier has worked rather well (even someone like me can have 18 minute Gold matches there).

If you are accurate a Mantis X on a class with Stasis can be devastating against regular troops. You can complement it with an Eagle or Hurricane if you've gotten them from commendation packs. Also an Acolyte even at level 1 does ridiculous damage. The Phaeston with armor piercing mods/ ammo can also dish out decent damage.

Playing with a group you know really helps. We end up just joking around and the match is over before we know it.

Except on Dagger. Even when we do it within 20 mins it feels like 40.

I get that, but I also meant physically, I managed so save the team that round, on my own, but I could feel my heart beating so fast and hard I thought there was an earthquake...

lol look at this neckbeard thinking he's cool by insulting the swagtastic among him. Hey, I know what words mean to. You know that raff means trash? Guess your name fits. Don't even try to step to Swagamemnon kid.


Neckbeard? Nah, just because someone calls you out on your terrible choice of words in insulting another person doesn't make someone a neckbeard. But then again, this conversation is pointless as I could be the all-singing, all-dancing penguin in Antarctica. And yes, I do know what my surname means: it derives from the Germanic and English terms of wolf and counsel. The more you know. Anyways, I'm done with you.


you took him waaaay to seriously

Ideally you'd be level 20 and have a powerful weapon, and probably some equipment. Everyone does that, you are alright.

I tried platinum and cried once though.

Also you can try a Krogan Vanguard until you see what is going on Gold.With Barrier for full damage protection,maximum health and shields and Charge you can survive a lot of hits.

Also just read the entry on urban dictionary. Pretty harsh, but true. Used most by d-bags indeed.
