How have you been enjoying Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer? Are you the run-and-gun Soldier, the in-your-face Vanguard or the sneaky Infiltrator? Chances are you’ve been playing one of these three classes according to recently released statistics.
But before we get the the stats, BioWare’s very own Senior Combat Designer Corey Gaspur and Gameplay Designer Eric Fagnan recently discussed the various classes of Mass Effect 3 and how they can be effectively utilized in ME3’s multiplayer. Check out the video below!

Lastly, ME3 MP fans are in for a bit of a “community” treat this weekend as BioWare will be will be commencing Operation Goliath. Well, Xbox 360 and PC fans, at least, as this challenge currently cannot be extended to PS3 users. In fact, this community, or “N7” challenge, began earlier today (Friday the 16th) and will continue until the 18th of March. So get crackin’! The challenge and rewards are as follows:
Any player who is part of a squad that beats the Reaper faction on Silver difficulty or better will unlock one Commendation Pack. This means that at least one member of the squad must be extracted at the end of the mission – this will earn all squad members the reward. Each player can earn a maximum of one pack, and each pack contains a random N7 Arsenal Weapon. Originally only available as single-player weapons via the N7 Collector’s Edition, these multiplayer variants will be exceptionally rare and are NOT obtainable through regular purchasable Reinforcement Packs. The Commendation Packs will contain one of the following guns at random: N7 Crusader Shotgun, N7 Eagle Pistol, N7 Hurricane SMG, and N7 Valiant Sniper Rifle.
Additionally, “if the multiplayer community kills a combined 1 MILLION brutes within the hours of the challenge, ALL players will receive a Victory Pack as a reward.”
