Is BioWare ever going to fix sabotage's bugged lack of kill crediting?

I was hoping they'd decrease the weight of the Valkyrie, not increase its damage. We need more good caster guns.

No, because they hate Sabotage. : /


10% damage nerf to Acolyte... won't change much unless they silently changed its health/armor/shield multipliers as well.


Any week with Hazard Ghost's a good week for ME3 MP in my book. :)

I think they did. The last time i used the Quarian Female Infiltrator, i saw the 'sabotage' power getting the points for the kill.

God, I have to work both sides of the street to pay that off!!

Huh, well I'll be darned. I guess no Volus Vanguard today. I'm looking forward to using the Quarian Marksman tonight.

Instead of straight damage I feel like increasing the Saber's headshot multiplier would've been better.
