If you woke up this morning thinking that you didn't have enough Mass Effect 2 weapons in your in-game locker, BioWare pounced this morning with the release of their previously-unannounced-but hinted-at weapon DLC.

The Firepower Pack - available now for a measly 160 Microsoft Points - will give Commander Shepard and his band of merry space aliens 3 new weapons; the Phalanx, like a hand cannon but with an "integral laser sight for a whole new aiming experience;" The Mattlock heavy rifle, described as a hybrid of a sniper rifle without a scope and a assault rifle without the recoil; and finally, the Geth Plasma Shotgun, which is a three-barreled shotty that you can charge up for greater damage, or blast away rapid-fire for longer range encounters.

Today also sees the release of BioShock 2's "Protector Trials" for 400 Microsoft Points, which are described as "frantic combat challenges designed to push your mastery of weapons and Plasmids to the limit." In BioShock's take on the popular horde mode, the Protector Trials have you protecting a Little Sister while she gathers ADAM. Each Trial is said to have three unique weapon and Plasmid loadouts, with a fourth unlocking when you've completed all previous other ones. Head here to queue it up now.

Oh, yeah... there's achievements as well... we nearly forgot. Ha! As if! Anyway, there are 7 worth 100 points for your troubles.
