Played a Gold match last night with my Level 18 geth infiltrator. Started the match on the new waterfall map. Wave 1 started and somone quits, leaving us down to 3. No problem, I have this Geth down pat with insanse sniping ability. I use the widow, damage enhance and penetration mod. Max tac cloak and hunter mod.
Went through the first 4 waves in record time, no one dies. Fifth wave things start to get dicey as they are all over the map and not clumped together. Still, a few players go downs, but we make it through the next few waves no problem.
Wave 8 and another person quits for some reason, leaving us down to just me and a soldier. Soldier had no mic so no communication. We trudge forward. Wave 9 arrives and the solder does the strangest thing, he acts like a real team member. He follows me every where, he resurrects me when I go down and he lets me tear these geth up. Spaming the ammo refill location (literally standing almost on top of it for constant ammo due to the low ammo of the widow). Soldier throws grenads, spams them, throws more, uses a few powers here and there to cover my back. When the primes come he helps out on them. We miracously make it through wave 9.
Pumped we head into wave 10, then things turn south. The geth get behind us somehow, we are flanked on three sides and we both go down, med gels bring us up. We try to relocate, almost impossible, he goes down, I go down. Being made of glass, the geth infiltrator goes down if they breath on me wrong (I stupidly forget to turn off hunter mode which lowers your shields 50%, completely forgot like a moron). We re-locate, pick a few off, get swarmed, multiple geth primes, things are looking grim. We get seperated, he goes down. I can't make it to him because I bump into something and loose my shields (joking, but sure felt like it). The primes take a bead on me, as does everything else. He is out of medi gels, I loose my lifeline as the solder is taken out of the picture and I stare dumbfounded at the skull icon on the screen.
I am all alone with a horde of angry geth looking to take out one of their own. I try to explain to them that I am one of them, we are kin, can't we just talk, but they hunt me relentlessly. I manage to get to a new location, I use my last rocket on a prime and get 2 for one. Feeling confident I step out and start taking them out. I go down, last medi-gel. Stand up, only to get swarmed and almost die again. I run for my life, take cover, kill every one but the last enemy. Heart pounding I feel confident. 2 people beating Gold by themselves!! I search the last enemy, turn the corner into that big room with the glowing orb and as I do I think to myself, am I forgetting something? As I turn I realize, to late, what it was. I didn't cloak myself. I go to aim. It is another geth prime, I shoot, he turns, laughs at me and my glass infused body cracks and breaks and I go down as the last enemy on Gold stands over my quivering body. As the round ends I could of sword I heard the Geth Prime laughing. Mission aborted.
So close, 2 on Gold. Man, soooo close. If I didn't make two stupid mistakes I think we could of had that one. I was so bummed, yet so excited at the same time. THIS GAME ROCKS!
