My first attempt at a Gold Solo in ages ended in disaster.

By that I mean I got sync killed by a Banshee.

Just doing the easy-mode Geth Soldier on Giant strategy and it was a breeze. I died on Wave 9 and I'd used a solitary Ops Pack the entire game. Still had max everything else.

So I'm on the corner by the extraction zone, as per the strategy, Banshee followed by a bunch of other stuff push towards me, so I stripped the Banshees shield with my Acolyte and proceeded to Flamer her and whatever was within range behind her. She's not dying quick enough and I can hear the other the other Banshee pushing up, so I turn and make a run for it, vault over the wall and right into the hands of the still on fire Banshee.

She's teleported from the bottleneck, where the extract opens up onto the rest of the map, through one wall, through all of that rubble, to right in front of me. I've never seen a Banshee jump so far or recover from being attacked so quickly. And because she landed whilst I was mid vault, by the time I'd landed she'd already started grabbing me, so I didn't even have a chance to dodge.

Really, really lame. I'd even got the 4 nodes objective on Wave 6, which I was absolutely dreading and I walked it.

Worst part of reaper/gold solo's. Banshee's don't follow normal warp/walk patterns and when you kill things they will spawn directly in front of the path you are running to.
