Half the gold games that I entered today was like that and I picked random/random/gold. So yeah. At least on PS3. Is it not popular on 360?
Interesting. I don't know how long you've been playing, but they specifically changed the layout of firebase white, added geth bombers, and made it so you can't grab armored enemies over cover in order to deter people from playing this way.
If you're really good at being situationally aware:
Tac Cloak: Damage, melee, power damage Warp: Detonate, Expose, Pierce Dark Channel: damage, slow, pierce Passive: nothing Fitness: All melee
Wraith with shotgun omniblade and heavy barrel, any melee boosting gear. Add strength enhancer for overkill
Have fun one shot meleeing every human sized enemy except phantoms. You need martial artist bonus active to do so. Takes about 4 bars off a banshees armor. And you still have access to your powers. Pick and choose your melee battles and you will have a blast!!
