BioWare is hosting a challenge this weekend, starting tonight at 5 PM PST, for multiplayer participants to win new weapon packs for their multiplayer experience. At first glance, it sounds "meh," but after reading on, it actually sounds like it will be a lot of fun.
Participants will have an opportunity to attain awesome rewards to be used in Commander Shepard’s battle to take Earth back with the following challenges:
· 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: (1) N7 Crusader Shotgun, (2) N7 Eagle Pistol, (3) N7 Hurricane SMG and (4) N7 Valiant Sniper Rifle.
· Destroy as many brutes as possible – 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.
**Please Note: All rewards will unlock on Tuesday, 3/20 at 5PM PST. You must redeem (open) your packs in the multiplayer store menu within 7-days of receiving. If you do not redeem these packs within the allotted 7-days, the packs will expire and cannot be restored. To participate, all players must enable the data tracking option in the game (optionsà onlineà upload gameplay feedbackà make sure it’s “ON”). If this is set to “OFF” your completion and/or contribution to the challenges will not be tracked and you will not receive any unlocks.
The challenge runs until 5 AM PST on Monday, March 19th. I am definitely in this weekend for taking down some brutes. Anyone else going to join in?
