In most gold games, people tend to fill in their fill of bonuses (ammo/weapon/armor). Lately, I've been seeing a trend. When they don't equip any bonuses, they get a very low score (lower than 30K). I'm not saying that applies to everyone, but the majority

So as of right now, whenever I enter a game, I look at what they are using first. If I don't see anyone putting anything on, I don't put anything on as well. In my mind, why should I waste what I have if no one else is willing to use theirs?

Do you guys do the same or do you equip regardless if others do or not? I don't have a lot of bonuses to spend. So I think it's better to conserve. I have a lot of consumables (all 4 is over 150), so those I can use without the care in the world.

Ditto. Or use garbage stuff like explosive rounds.

I usually just put on something useless like Explosive Rounds or an Adrenaline Module I to make it seem like I'm making an effort.
I see dead people.

My useless equipments are also low, so I can't even show an effort if I do that... how do you guys stock up on so much? Show me the light? Should I just keep buying Recruits and Vet packs?

Valid point, and what you said is true, especially since ammo mods more than anything increase damage... I used level IV ammo in a plat game, the highest everyone else had was level 3. I easily broke the lead. More damage = more points.

I generally equip based on what kit I am using. If its a non-weapons class (eg adepts), armor bonus, gear, and thats it. Then I check the game setting (cerberus, reaper, geth, unknown...) Then I also take into account what my team has, if no one uses high level equips, I use whats comparable. Finally, also depends on the difficulty I am playing. (ie I never use level IV in gold, but I will use level 1, 2, 3...)
Yes, this is a signature.

Store up 1,000,000+ credits, and then when going for the promotion challenge, just buy recruit packs. Once you max your commons and uncommons each one will give you a character card that will give you either 12,500 or 62,500 XP allowing you to rank up faster and store up a large amount of level 1 gear and consumables.

I only use equipment if at least 2 other people are (and one has to be the host), and I only use equipment as high as they're using.

Sometimes I won't for the simple reason that I'm always very low on consumables.

Hopefully that will change once I max all of my Rare weapons though. It just sucks going into Platinum with a biotic character and not having a single Warp Rounds to slap on...
