hijack atlas

#1inteltn24Posted 4/28/2012 1:54:47 PM
which weapons are good to break the atlas canopy?
I'm using adept and would like to keep the weight near 100%
So far i've tried lv5 m-13 raptor and m-92 mantis (insanity mod)but they didn't do the job.
Does it has to be a certain weapon? Has anyone tried to break the canopy with the saber?

I read on the BSN that someone did it on Insanity with the Sabre, but there was no evidence. I got it, on Insanity, with a Black Widow X. Not all Atlases can be hijacked, and I think some can have their canopies broken and pilot killed, but can't actually be controlled by the player.

I believe you need a low damage weapon to break the glass. I know the phaeston works if you take down the shields and focus fire on the glass. Don't know about other weapons though

Paladin & Saber rip through Atlas with or without the Piercing Mods.

best time to get this achievement is during the grissom academy mission. you can use the atlas given to you before the last room to shoot the glass out of the atlas that spawns on the last wave.

Is it possible to break the glass and hijack an Atlas in MP? That should totally be implemented with a few limitations on it so it's not as powerful as it is in SP.

I don't think it even needs limitations tbh. The amount of incoming fire in Gold would render it completely useless, in Silver it would be slightly useful but mostly not, and in Bronze it doesn't matter how awesome it would be.

I think it would be overpowered in Silver(especially if multiple players get mutliple Atlas') and what isn't overpowered in bronze. You might have a point with Gold though, but it would still be fun to have the option

IIRC atlas canopies for some reason don't become breakable until the second citadel mission and forward.

Err... What? On my second ME3 run my Shep the atlas window in Grissom. In that room you first meet Jack again.
