Interesting day yesterday with the Geth Infiltrator. I didn't do Silver because I'm new and still hitting Engineer power buttons by reflex and getting bad results. My one Silver run with the GE was OK, but I screwed up the extraction by turning and fighting instead of running. With no turret and no Overload, the Infiltrator will RUN in those situations. If ONLY I could remap the power buttons, so when I try to hit Overload I'd get the Proximity Mine.
Black Widow showed me that my lack of success with some guns is some sort of oddity of the game. BUNCHES of times I'd put three in the chest of a mid-level Geth and he'd just laugh them off. Only by having used the respec card to put a few points into the Proximity Mine did I have any chance with them, and even that tended to be a joke when it often did no damage either. This whole random-invulnerability thing bugs me, though. I don't need life-lessons about some enemies you aren't supposed to kill, I want holes drilled through ALL the ones I shoot at.
Only killed one Banshee with the BW, and she had been softened up quite a bit. The rest were with the Geth SMG. Had to use the Ultralight mod so that my cooldown wasn't negative, but even without the Barrel mod it still kills well. I now like the openness of Firebase Hydra, since the the extraction zone makes an excellent place from which to shoot. I started to get the cloak-fire-recloak thing down, and if I get lighter guns later it will get easier. Took down several Atlases that way.
The cloak also helps with the activate-this objectives, but in almost every game I was beaten to them by non-cloaked players and I asked myself, where WERE these people when my GE was dying because I had to do them solo? Rescue missions were much easier, although just like with the Salarian if I didn't cloak soon enough they still acted like I was quite visible. Didn't find a need to do any sneak attacks with the rocket launcher against any mob (this IS Bronze I'm talking about) but I'm thinking about it for later.
I had noticed that I'd seen the little speaker in the Lobby flashing for some people but wasn't hearing anything, and a voice message was silent, so I finally checked and found my headset had lost the speaker. Mixing the chat sound into the TV was hit and miss due to low volume from some people so I dug around and found my original Xbox headset and it works. Not exactly comfortable with its over-the-ears design, but it was free.
My sweepstakes hobby netted me a 12-month LIVE card. All-in-all not a bad day...
