Armax Arsenal has requested help identifying a bug in the combat simulator. Fight a super-elite opponent in their arena on the Citadel.
After purchasing all available prizes (except the ally licenses), check the Combat Simulator Control terminal for the following e-mail:
Select "Super-Elite" level enemies from the Combat Simulator terminal, and complete the match. You may choose any enemy, squadmates, or modifiers for the mission.
After successful completion check the terminal for the following e-mail:
You will receive a Sniper Rifle High-Velocity Barrel after reading the e-mail. Since the IT team hasn't figured out the problem, do as they ask. Select every positive bonus modifier and complete the match. All other settings regarding enemy type, difficulty, and squad are up to you.
Did IT figure out the problem? Check the terminal to find out they think they're getting close:
You'll be rewarded with the Pistol Power Magnifier weapon mod for your troubles up to this point. Next, change the settings as asked: "Spin Zone" map, "geth" enemies, "elite" difficulty, and "enhanced enemy shields" bonus modifier. You can add other modifiers and choose your squad as you like and start the match.
It looks like they haven't fixed anything at all, and have, in fact, made it worse! The map is filled with incomplete digital artifacts and text reading "Fatal Error," the announcer sounds strange, and the enemies that appear aren't geth at all—they're super-elite level Collectors. The next wave is super-elite level geth, then Cerberus, Reapers, and finally, a combination of all high-level boss enemies: Banshees, Praetorians, Geth Primes, and Atlases all in a single wave. You might find yourself reminiscent about Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer's Platinum difficulty, if you've played it.
If your health and shields fall to zero, it will result in a Critical Mission Failure instead of the normal failed simulations which are not life-threatening. Be careful!
After you've made it through, the IT department will send you a final e-mail and the Assault Rifle Thermal Scope weapon mod.
