Now that ME2 is $20 on the PSN, I'm thinking about playing through it again (I finished it when it was new on 360) but on insanity difficulty this time. The question is, should I buy the N7 weapons/armor pack? I don't have a problem with Insanity in the late game, but I struggle early game without upgraded weapons. Also, is Soldier the best approach for an insanity run? Thanks.
Thinking About Insanity Run
I did mine as a Vanguard, that shift ability, charge or whatever was useless and so was the shotty. All I used was the semi-auto, my warp and reave ability plus miranda and garrus(sometimes thane for collectors since he also has warp) throughout.
I'd say go for soldier, the weapon mods are very useful and yeah the the mattax assut rifle is better than any assult rifle in the game. THe geth shotgun is better than any shotty in the game...the arc projecter heavy weapon (also dlc) is really really handy, better than the collector beam you get in the game.
So yeah, the new dlc guns are 'better' and I think some come with better armor, that Klestor armor set is also the best. Get that.
Infiltrator for the sniper rifle, cloak and anti armour. Garrus for Anti shields and the Solarian for Extra Anti Armour. Cos on insanity there is tones of Armour.
So the second half is fine. First half is rocky epeasicly the middle. However if you have the Widowmaker it helps.
@Dany: Charge on Insanity is not useful on the lower levels, but it becomes immensely powerful once it starts recharging your shields/barrier with each charge. I did my playthrough on Insanity as a vanguard as well, and although it was tough as nails in some spots, it ended up being a very rewarding playthrough. (that, and people at work kept claiming Vanguard wasn't very good for Insanity playthroughs)
I did my insanity run as a Vanguard and it wasn't too difficult. Between fire ammo and being able to instantly recharge my shield with the charge as long as I played smart and didn't jump into the line of fire of 5 guys I could clear rooms no problem. I really liked the shotgun you get from the Collector's Ship, and the default Shotgun worked plenty fine before that.
I really would recommend the Katsumi DLC though, the SMG you got from that is absolutely amazing.
