Bug with powers? Edit

I tried using my tactical cloak and run to somewhere more comfy, but apparently those guys and the drones both can see right through it. Bug? Feature? -- 23:26, March 18, 2013 (UTC)

When you're alone, the enemy AI can "peek through" the cloak. There is a post on BSN by Eric Fagnan about how the enemy pathing works with cloak, but I can't seem to find it. Trandra (talk) 01:58, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
Cloak works by "dumping aggro"; it merely redirects attention to other players. If you are the only one on your team, the aggro dumping aspect doesn't work because there is no other character to redirect attention to. Lksdjf (talk) 03:30, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
Also, and important to this mission's circumstances - Tactical Cloak seems counterintuitively to "blow your cover" in the try-to-stay-hidden-and-use-your-suppressed-pistol part of the market. In better news, upgraded cloak lasts long enough to make a full run down the market to the bridge. Cattlesquat (talk) 20:07, April 19, 2013 (UTC)

Who is Crewmate 2? Edit

Does anybody know how the game decides who crewmate 2 is going to be? On my first playthrough it was Liara, then after trudging my way through the ending and back again it is James this time. I'm curious as I assumed crewmate 2 would always be Liara if she's not the LI. Restarting the entire add-on does not change them(from a save directly before docking at the apartment for the first time.) So does the game pick a random crewmate for each playthrough or is there a trigger somewhere for selecting a particular squadmate?--Sabre255 (talk) 05:06, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

as is the case for everything character-driven there's always a hierarchy of triggers that decide who says who in which place and when. nobody cares to do proper research on this at the moment, or nobody just bothered to post their findings yet.

For me Crewmate 2 was Garrus. Tali was Crewmate 1. It may be that Crewmate 2 is the squadmember you've taken on the most missions? Or it could be random. Tali's no.1 fan (talk) 10:20, March 20, 2013 (UTC)
"Crewmate 2" appears to be your most frequently used Squadmate. I've seen it thus with two, different character playthroughs. ---- AnotherRho (talk) 10:42, March 22, 2013 (UTC)
By Crewmate 2 are we referring to who contacts you, or who shows up to help? In one save I had Liara (my LI) arrive first, James was over the comm, yet it was Wrex who came to save me. In my second playthrough Wrex was dead. Liara came to save me first (no LI), and this time while Garrus was over the comm it was James who arrived to destroy the shuttle. Not sure if that info helps any... Garhdo (talk) 11:54, March 22, 2013 (UTC)

As stated in the article, the squad member who contacts you second is referred to as Crewmate 2. The "Shuttle Buster" is always either Wrex or James. Tali's no.1 fan (talk) 11:58, March 22, 2013 (UTC)

Ok yeah so I have had James, who I was friendly with, and Garrus who was my former LI and most used squadmate. Garhdo (talk) 12:14, March 22, 2013 (UTC)

LI Banter. Edit

Liara (LI) was my Femshep's Comp 1, And when we met in the car park she noticed Sheps outfit and was most complimentary. So, possible extra dialogue while in your black dress for LI's. No idea where to drop that little note, so I dropped it here. 17:54, March 26, 2013 (UTC) Liabelle

nope. LI compliments your appearance whatever your outfit.

Possibility to make things easier for an Infiltrator Edit

I found the following solution to be extremely effective whilst playing an Infiltrator:

Required techs:

  • Tactical Cloak
  • Domination (pick as your bonus tech)
  • AI Hacking
  • (optional) Disruptor Ammo
  • (optional) Incinerate

With Tactical Cloak you can cloak yourself when things get too hot - just engage and drop back to a safer spot (possibly with ammo pickups). AI Hacking helps you with the drones your enemies launch at you so they attack your adversaries instead, plus Domination causes your adversaries to attack their buddies to add to the fun of it.

Use Disruptor Ammo to take down your opponents' shields whenever necessary and Incinerate to set them on fire once they are unprotected.

You should be able to get rid of them relatively quickly and without too much trouble. At least it works like a charm for me.

Robidu (talk) 23:52, July 15, 2013 (UTC)

Domination is a pretty good point, I may add that to the preparation section. I've used the AI hacking quite a lot w/ my insanity-ironman-infiltrator and only had mixed results - they do stop attacking but aren't all that aggressive in seeking back at the enemies.

Moving part of the walkthrough Edit

When you arrive at the sushi bar, the mission is still labelled "Citadel: Shore Leave". It only updates once the cutscene is over and ambush has begun, so maybe part of the walkthrough should be there instead of here? Elseweyr (talk) 09:37, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

sure go ahead, i'm currently "busy" elsewhere. was planning to do citadel dlc mission overhauls myself when i get around to snapping the pictures anyway.

Bug with M-11 Suppressor pistol? Edit

In my 2nd playthrough, in which I had the M-11 Suppressor at level VII, it turned into a level I weapon again when I picked it up in the sushi restaurant. Does anyone know whether this is intended or a bug?( 21:42, February 4, 2014 (UTC))

Sounds like a bug to me, though we'd need two more users to confirm the same thing before we could put something in the article about that. It does sound very plausible to me as something that might have unintentionally resulted from the special-case code they use to suddenly give you & equip you with the weapon. Cattlesquat (talk) 22:01, February 4, 2014 (UTC)

dont usually post on these bu this just happened to me. (mojo)

Blade Runner Reference Edit

Did anyone else notice the Blade Runner reference made by the Salarian in the frozen fish storage? If you stick around long enough, he will eventually say "Look, I only do eyes." Ganondorf 05:29, August 31, 2014 (UTC)
