With the non-stealth (and stealth-grid) characters complete, I had just the three infiltrators to finish the Platinum solo challenge with every character. There are plenty of videos featuring these kits, and I wanted to see if I could do it using a weapon that’s decidedly not top-tier.
So, here I was using the M-90 Indra for pretty much the first time. I remember this being a decent weapon for my Salarian Engineer in ME3MP, but I never warmed up to the Andromeda version. I definitely felt like I was tickling the enemies at times. When fired under cloak, it can do about 11K damage, but out of cloak, I was looking at just over 5K damage per clip. Taking out the turrets and the Destroyers/Progenitors took a really long time with the Indra.
The Salarian has a low base weight capacity that can only be increased by Offensive Tech 6B Weapon Mass Reduction, which I did not take. I could have packed my trusty Rozerad. If I did so, I probably would have used it the entire match, so I left it behind.
Of course I did have my Sticky Grenades, and man are they powerful on the Salarian! I used them throughout to take out those pesky Saboteurs, Adhis, Wraiths, and Sharpshooters. There are five ammo crates on Aqua, meaning I had access my four grenades and 20 more around the map.Objectives
Cloak really makes those Devices and Retrieval objectives easy, doesn’t it? I just had to remind myself to disengage cloak while safely behind cover. Then, I could wait for Tactical Cloak to go off cooldown before turning invisible and reaching the next objective.
