Mass Effect 3 Operation: Detonator Demands Biotic Explosions

View author's profile

There's another Mass Effect 3 multiplayer event getting underway later today with Operation: Detonator, including a weekend goal that demands 20,000 Biotic Explosion points per player. That's a lot of Biotic Explosions.

Obviously, you'll need to take more biotics into battle and rack up those points to be in with a chance of snagging the commendation pack that's on offer as a reward. Here's the details via the BioWare blog:

"Event Description: Recent setbacks have prompted changes in unit composition. Turian cabal theory is now dominant training paradigm. N7 units will now be deployed with pairs or higher percentages of biotics wherever available to maximize effectiveness.

Individual Goal: Earn 20,000 Biotic Explosion points on any map at any difficulty. You will need to kill the enemy with the explosion for the points to count. Points are cumulative across matches. Extraction not required.

Reward: Commendation Pack"

Mass Effect 3 Operation: Detonator will be commencing today, and running until December 2nd.

@2 do you still play any other game you bought more than 1 month ago?

There's some people that actually buy games they like and play them because of that, not because it's the new blockbuster of the week and just want to spent money in the first thing they find in the store

Short answer: Yes, there're people playing this everyday

This shouldn't be too bad. Since I've been working on the Commando Mastery challenges, I guess I'll take my Asari Vanguard out for this.

I am surprised that they still have operations too, the multiplayer is highly repetitive and the RNG unlock system sucks.

So they added another enemy type, Collector's? I haven't played since a week after the N7 characters came out.

@#9 Agreed, though you have to appreciate how they keep adding events, even if they are nothing special. I myself played MP on a few occasions for few days at times, but it always get boring quick. It's a nice distraction to an amazing campaign, sort of like AC MP is for me=)

I appreciate how these are; 1) weekly and not daily and 2) not a pain in the ass like Halo Reach challenges. The N7 unlock is nice too even if the guns are crap.

@13 That's why I wrote a "Short answer", I guess that was very hard to find... my fail

Remind me not to invite you to my friends list if I ever meet you in a game, because that will be a hell of a short time playing together

@ 6 i have games from the start of the gen that i still play. ME3 is not a game i see myself playing in a few years time simply because it was a rushed out mess.

Good to see ME transition nicely from single player campaigns that're £4 within a year of release despite being called GOTY to having a solid if unspectacular MP for all those people who like games for their gameplay. This also increases the amount of time player keep the game on their shelf opening up the opportunity for more DLC to be sold or at least 'not rushed' by whatever metrics we're using to judge that these days.

Smart business move EA.

These operations have been running weekly since the end of September. If you like to dip into the multiplayer, just jump on at any point over the weekend, do the challenge and play a bit more if you feel like it and then you're good until the following weekend.
