Particle Rifle in multiplayer

I just updated my Multiplayer Manifest on the BSN and the prothean Particle Rifle appears as an unlockable N7-tier weapon. Awesome. Was this announced anywhere?

Well it's damage was pretty bad in SP shot by shot but the multiplayer damage with continuous fire plus recharge made it a good gun.

Oh come on Bahroo, you think every weapon that's not a claymore is a piece of crap But seriously, there are really only a handful of weapons that should be brought into gold. All the others are good for is just for fun on bronze and silver. Shame this one sounds like it falls into that category also seeing as it's an ultra-rare.

Rail Amp 3
Warp Ammo 4
Assault Rifle gear 5

and it does lackluster damage. Looking forward to seeing the actual stats on it.

All that and it's still bad? Glad I don't want it.

Seems legit; even if the weapon is severely under-par... Even though it's an N7 weapon, I'm still holding my breath for the damn Valkyrie... I mean c'mon! All N7 guns but the assault rifle? Mreh.

I'm only slightly disappointed by this. I have all the ultra-rares except this and the Paladin, plus all the rest ranked up to X, and I still only use the Valiant. Well, that and maybe three others on occasion. I'm glad that at least there's more useless crap to collect

What is this "playing for fun" you speak of? I don't understand.....

The Valkyrie is bound to show up sooner or later. I wouldn't mind the Argus either.

Wha?--

The Saber is hands-down one of my favorite weapons so pardon me if I'm a bit confused by your statement...

Hmm... Eagle is bad maybe for Gold, good in bronze, a bit of a crutch in silver, but...

Well, obviously Widow > Black Widow...

Phoenix Characters are certainly a bit flashy, but looking past all that, the Adept is probably one of my favorite classes... The ability to spam Smash/Lash makes for a potent combination...

I listed weapons (+two chars) that feel OP lol. Hopefully the PPR is nerfed like Bahroo says.

Well I knew this thing was a giant piece of crap but at least we get to see WHY now.

Damage [17.2-21.4]
ROF [800]
weight [2.0-1.4]
magsize [100]
rechargeratepersecond [0.35f]
recoil [0.0f]
timetoheatup [2.f]

Yes, the UR does less DPS than an Avenger

lol. I think the only thing that outdamages is the GPSMG, and even then it's only slightly higher (even when factoring in ROF). But wait, is that damage just for the startup beam or is that even for the charged beam?

I imagine it could make a decent Freeze Ray with Cryo ammo, but since only unprotected targets can be frozen...

Sounds like a real piece of shit. Unlike the Godly Collector Rifle.

If the Valkyrie ever ends up in multiplayer, it better join the weekend specials. ;P

With the DLC coming out soon and a weekend operation I wanted to see if I can beat silver after 2 weeks of not playing ME3 MP (turns out I can). The first spectre pack I buy and I get Particle Rifle. Lucky me I guess. Too bad it is useless. Terrible waste of Ultra Rare space. Now when and if I get Ultra Rare weapon there is a 10% chance I get this piece of crap instead of something usefull. Oh well, back to Skyrim.

Nooooo. I cant believe this bloody random crap. I have spent over 2 million credits in psp and sp and got no ultra rare weapons since they announced this gun was out. I keep going online seeing people who it appears have hardly played the game from their N7 rank and have this gun wtf. I feel like the only one left out not to mention those are the credits I should be saving for the dlc.

Rant over for now.

Have the people who have used it tried different ammo powers on it. Im thinking because it has a continuous beam that it would work well by using it as a freeze gun, or setting amoured enemies alight. It maybe possible that they will upgrade the damage output of the gun later on, maybe they didnt want another krysae rifle situation so they starting with low damage.

I know how you feel I still don't have the paladin yet I see so many low levels using it I'm starting to think they added it to the starter pack.

I'm annoyed I can't seem to unlock anymore Reegar Carbines. I got it to IV almost immediately after the DLC was released, and haven't picked up any more since. It's one of my favorite guns.
