On launch day of Mass Effect 2, several downloadable items were made available free of charge. Although many had issues getting them to download and work because of the requirement of going through the BioWare site first, they were pretty cool and added some fun to the game.
On that note, new Mass Effect 2 DLC will be arriving tomorrow, specifically, a new set armor and a shotgun will be available through the games’ Cerberus network, and will be free of charge.
Cerberus Assault Armor
Cerberus assault armor is designed for shock troops, who are expected to turn the tide of battle against creatures or forces that would decimate normal soldiers. The troops demanded three things in its design: shields, armor thick enough to last against a superior foe, and a rechargeable pack to extend a heavy weapon power cell. The only drawback of the armor is its weight, which the troops carry as a point of pride. They have a saying: “Out of shape going in, in shape coming out.”
- Increases heavy weapon ammo capacity by +10%
- Increases shields by +10%
- Increases health by +10%
M-22a Eviscerator Shotgun
The M-22a Eviscerator Shotgun is a longer-range shotgun with armor-piercing loads. This design also violates several intergalactic weapons treaties, so the M-22a is not distributed to militaries.
I don’t know about you, but a longer-range shotgun sounds pretty awesome to me. Also, it should be fun to have the option to suit up in armor from everyone’s favorite organization!
