Mass Effect 3 - N7 Challenge Weekend for May 11th

By Jonathan Barnes, 4 years ago
Banshees, aren't they the worst? Fortunately the Allied Forces at BioWare agree and have made them the focal point of this weekend's N7 Operation for


Operation Silencer is (once again) setting two goals:

Allied Goal: Kill 3,000,000 banshees
Squad Goal: Survive until a full extraction on any map against any enemy on gold difficulty.

Successful completion of the allied goal will grant all players a Victory Pack.
Successful completion of the squad goal will grant all squadmates a Commendation Pack.

There is one additional piece of interesting info in this piece, however:

This task is an onerous one, and many of you are right to dread contact with these particular foes, but rest assured that we are prepared to reinforce your battalion with reserves. The vorcha want in, and as soon as they complete combined-arms training with our technically-skilled personnel, we will let them loose.
The vorcha want in... very interesting especially given the whispers (i.e. unverified rumors) that more Mass Effect 3 multiplayer DLC is on the way and set to introduce Vorcha (and "Phoenix") as playable species.

In more "fact-based" news, BioWare has also released some updated community stats on the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer.


Operation Silencer is set to begin this Friday, May 11 at 6:00PM PST and run until Monday, May 14 at 5:00PM PST. As always, remember to set the “Upload Gameplay Feedback” setting to “On” in the online options to be able to participate in this N7 Operation.
