What did you get/want in your commendation pack?

#1 Edited by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

So the packs are going out slowly and I just checked mine out. If you aren't aware, they were given out if you finished a multiplayer match on silver or gold against the reapers over the weekend and these packs have a 100% chance for a N7 rarity weapon.
 
Anyway, I got the Eagle which is... cool? Honestly I don't even know what the weapons are that have the N7 rarity BUT THEY ARE RARE SO IT'S COOL!
 
I use pistols occasionally so I'll be sure to give it a try.

I got a goddamned shotgun, which I never use, but its also fucking weighty, so even a pistol bumps the weight into the redzone, so im never going to use the fucking thing because I like my confrontations at a distance, usually with an assault rifle, which incidentally is something I never get. Goddamned random cards.

@roughneck117: That's how I play too. I was hoping for an assault rifle in the pack (if there even is one). My friend got the Valiant, which if I recall correctly what he said then it is a sniper, has three rounds per clip, fires fast and maybe has the same power as the Wraith? It sounds really good compared to a pistol!
 
Oh well. Maybe if they do it again I can get something better :p

I got the pistol as well (the eagle, right?) It seems okay. I use a pistol with the engineer and adept, so it'll see some play. I did notice it was an "Eagle I" (as opposed to Eagle X) so maybe these will be available at some point in some special super duper pack.

I got the N7 hurricane, enjoying it so far except it's a tad heavy and can't hit anything if not in cover.

oh and each time I fire it someone in the party bound to yell "WTF I hear a turret but we are fighting reaper/geth!!" lol

I got the sniper, I wanted anything but the sniper.

I got the N7 Hurricane.. wich.. made me sad... :( The recoil on it is ridiculous, like Sate2801 said, if you aren't in cover, good luck actually tagging something as it's cone just goes insane in short order. I fell right back to using pistols as I think that is another SMG that's going to sit on the shelf for me. :/

@allgrinzz The trick is to fire it at the hip from mid-range. If you aim down the sights, it's worthless.

I got the eagle but i was hoping for the shotgun to test out with my Vanguard. 

#13 Edited by Mnemoidian (955 posts) -

Got the Crusader. Meh. Had hoped for the Hurricane - though I doubt I'd use either much.

I'll give the Crusader a couple of tries, with a Krogan or something.

But yeah, bet the Hurricane works much better from the hip, similarily to the Predator pistol.

edit: I'm a bit concerned that the N7 weapons won't hold up either way, seeing how I've got a ton of level X weapons.

Got the Valient, wanted the Valient. Pretty happy about it.

#15 Posted by Karkarov (2980 posts) -

Wow that sucks you cant get the N7 assault rifle? Well truthfullly the valiant is probably the best of them but meh the ar is useful at least.

#16 Edited by phrosnite (3518 posts) -

I got N7 Eagle Pistol! Trying it right now!

Edit: Meh. It looks really cool but the Carnifex and Paladin are still waaaaaaaay better pistols.

#17 Posted by allgrinzz (161 posts) -

@Brodehouse: Will try that, been trying to use it aiming, and the recoil is just ridiculous. End up aiming at sky if i don't pin the stick to the bottom using ADS heh.

Got the N7 Crusader shotgun (slug-style semi auto), which is a neat piece of hardware for some duck-hunting-style fun. Got a Geth Plasma Shotgun upgrade from the victory pack, which is neat too.

Got a Claymore. Wish I got a Disciple.

#24 Edited by MentalDisruption (1618 posts) -

I got the N7 eagle pistol, which thank god, because I need a good pistol for my engineer.

Isn't that a non-N7 weapon? Did you get that in the Victory pack?

I got the N7 Wraith and it's an absolute BEAST!

@roughneck117: Something tells me you aren't Krogan.

#28 Posted by CenturionCajun (1461 posts) -

Got the N7 sniper rifle. It looks cool but is only level one and my level 2 Widow is far better. Perhaps if I get a couple more levels of it in future. Still, it's cool they are doing things like this.

#29 Posted by huntad (1930 posts) -

I got the Shotgun, and I mainly use shotguns. All I ever get are shotguns. How do they know I like shotguns?! Shotguns..

Got the N7 Eagle.
Fucking piece of shit gun.
 
To everyone who got the Eagle, throw that bitch in the garbage.
The starting Predator pistol does more dmg per shot, weights less, has better rate of fire, is more accurate, has less recoil.
The only thing Eagle has over it is 3 more bullets in the clip and dubious automatic nature if you have a slow trigger finger.

(yes eagle has lower rate of fire then the predator, the ingame stat bars are a joke, just like they are in most online shooters)

This is even beside the point that it is super easy to upgrade the Predator to the X version and make it absolutely devastating.
Whereas good luck trying to upgrade that eagle past rank I.
 
Edit: just tried out the Eagle with my Asari Adept, almost barfed at how bad this gun is even in practic compared to the basic Predator

I got the crusader.

It is amazing.

you know what I wish you could trade weapons with other people it would make things less painful

This.

I got the shotty. I don't really care, to be honest. Sounds like the only weapon really worth getting out of the lot was the sniper, and I've yet to use one. I'm more happy with the spike launcher shotgun thing I got in the pack that everybody got. I don't know what its stats are like, but at least it shoots fucking rebar or railroad spikes or something... that's cool. I would have much rather the pack have a 100% chance to unlock a character you don't have or just give me all the customization options to one I did have.

The reason he asked is that people are talking about the commendation pack.
Which is what you get for completing a reaper levl of at least silver difficulty.
The commendation pack gave everyone a guaranteed N7 type weapon which are above gold and are normally ultra rare.
