I reccomend the good old, reliable, vanilla, Avenger X with a magazine upgrade and the armor-piercing mod. That way, you can fight effectively at range and still have excellent cooldown on your ballistic blades.
Warfighter package works best here, in my opinion. Grenade capacity isn’t bad either. Power bonuses are also always nice.
You’re going to be able to take out anything that isn’t an Atlas, Prime, or Banshee quite easily. Basically, run right up to an enemy or near a group, pump exploding razors into their faces, get into cover, get a few Avenger headshots, and repeat as soon as the cooldown is finished. When you’re only threatened by one enemy, just fire your blades and use a heavy melee while they’re staggered. This will insta-kill most weaker enemies even on silver (Haven’t tested this on gold yet, as I’m only at level 18). The spread of your blades is pretty wide, as you’ll notice when you shoot an assault trooper, turn, and see a centurion outside of your field of vision stagger and explode into a fountain of blood. You’re pretty durable, but remember to take cover. Have Blade Armor on at all times, it will save your life when a Geth Hunter melees you and gets staggered before he can finish you off. Work with teammates on the boss enemies, because you’re not very well equipped to take them down unless you can refill your grenades quickly.
N00b Rating: (scale 1-5, 1 is easy for everybody!)
3. It’s pretty average in difficulty.
