I can't believe my level 20 Salarian Engineer is this good!

Me and I am Gary Oak decided to try and Duo Gold with the "worst character" in the game. Things went pretty well until the final Objective on Wave 10 but we managed to pull through successfully without using too much equipment. Time could've been better but we agreed not to nuke-spawns just to show how well the Salarian Engineer can hold up on long waves against a lot of enemies.

Since when did the salarian become the "worst"? I haven't played for a long period of time before getting back, so what is something I missed, like balance changes to him or something?
Or did people start calling him the worst after the new DLC characters came out?

SE is a beast, on the right hands. One could argue it may not be up to par with say, S-tier characters. But they'd be surprised if they could find out the amount of Plat and/or Collector matches I've one with the guy. In short, don't be quick to judge off a guy just because one of his abilities has been impaired. You'd be surprised what you could with just one of his other ability

2 good players using a sub-par class, but good video and time considering. Reactor is also one of my favorite solo maps, you should have tried Hydra or Condor and see how that match turned out.

Yat- feel like doing Turks challenge as a duo? I know you like those Asari!

I think people freak out over these class tier charts and character rankings. Just because the character is rated low by random people on the inwebz doesnt mean its useless. It just means that the SE has less helpful offensive/defensive powers than most other characters.

I had no idea what I was doing at the start of wave 1 because I had no idea which button was which power.

'Worst character' could be thought of as simply 'least best'. The Salarian Engineer won't be topping out the damage charts any time soon, but he has two solid powers in Incinerate and Energy Drain. Then there's Decoy... Decoy is just, Decoy. It has several uses, but offers less overall utility compared to other powers.

It's pretty damn effective against Phantoms, it seemed like they were the ones getting distracted by the decoy the most, more than centurions and troopers.

SE is a great character, many people just hate him because of the W/G/G camping days. He's not a crazy power house that can easily dominated anything in every situation, but still a very solid Gold character.

If SE is really considered the worst character now, then there's really no such thing as a bad character. I literally have never lost a game on gold with him, which is something I can't say for the GI or kroguard (for what it's [probably not] worth).
