Unlocking Volus Protector Vanguard and challenge
Unlocking Batarian Slasher Adept and challenge
Unlocking Drell Assassin Infiltrator and challenge

All hazard maps are now unlocked for the Christmas holidays

Acolyte Pistol
- Reverting pistol to original state before the attempted rocket glitch fix since the change
did not curb the use of the glitch

Does this mean it's a charge weapon again? Cause that would suck :-(


Yup. Today's balance change should've said:
Acolyte damage modifiers on health and armor reduced to 25% / 25%

That way, the pistol that's only supposed to strip shields/barriers will only strip shields/barrier, instead of killing everything in sight. That would've been perfect.

Instead, they went and did something stupid, giving squishy casters a pistol that prevents them from taking cover, makes it awkward to cast/aim powers on the right bumper, and resets anytime they get stunned, in case the geth weren't trolling adepts hard enough as is. And then they sugar-coat it with a bunch of gifts and the much-wanted sabotage buff, (with a little nerf sprinkled in there too,) so no one will notice. Merry ****ing Christmas.

Bravo, Biower. Bravo. *applauds*

It's a good thing I stopped using the acolyte last week, or I might be upset about this.

Don't get too excited guys. I have all the rare weapons maxed, just got 6 of the aresenal packs and did not get a single UR weapon.

It's not a nerf. It's just a revert. Personally, I loved the charge mechanic on the Acolyte. Now they need to give it back its normal damage.

Why? The only ones who benefit from it are infiltrators, vanguards, and missile glitchers, the two (three?) classes for whom the acolyte was never intended.
