Something else you might want to try is ditching the sniper all together and rolling a Geth Plasma Shottie instead and focus on spamming prox mine.
On an unrelated note, set a personal gold speed record last night. 13mins 8secs to clear Condor/Cerberus/Gold. Was a lvl7 SI. Can I get a cool story bro?
Geth shotgun gave me the same poor results as plenty of non-SMG guns: I'd have the target centered in the circle, pull the trigger, and nothing died or seemed to get hurt much. Even charged shots didn't kill some low-level guys. I did manage to down a Banshee when she forgot to hit me when I was within arms reach, but other people were shooting too so she was distracted. Until it gets to X I don't plan on trying again.
I had a bad experience. Well, I guess other people apparently have had bad experiences with me all along but didn't complain. See, I was having connection issues where the walls were moving and I couldn't walk straight, and again I had enemies sucking up SMG fire and not dying, and I was complaining about it out loud. So this guy, who had been silent so far, piped up with "Gee, you whine a lot". I replied in the affirmative, and he came up with "I had a co-worker like you. I didn't like him either." So now I knew how the rest of the conversation was going to go: nothing I said would matter, he would be completely right, blah blah blah. Comments to the affect that I was actually missing all my targets and THAT was why they weren't dying. So I wrapped up the game without risking my LIVE account and he was very happy once more. Me, I'm thinking that someone who says NOTHING but is wearing a mic can easily take it off if he isn't amused. I just wish there was a way to mute people in-game, so he'd turn me off rather than be a dick. I'm not a dick, I'm just annoying...
