You are watching: Mass effect 3 widow vs black widow



So, I"m an infiltrator...

Should I organize out for awhile much longer and cash in on the Babsence Widow ($250,000) sniper rifle or hook myself up through one of the armor packeras (50,000) appropriate now?

I play heavy via incinerate and also power drain / disruptor and cryo ammo.

--------

many thanks men and gals, I"ve put about 25 hours in the game and I"m happily taking my sweet ass time.

Black Widow is the most remarkable goddamn gun in the game.

You can discover armour pieces (the majority of them) in the missions you take. Side mission or otherwise.

go via babsence widow

I am likewise an infiltrator and also it has actually been nothing yet terrific, specifically all upgraded

Yeah, with the cloak damage bonus, one headshot through the Black Widow is pretty much the finish of anypoint that gets in your way


Babsence Widow V is fucking beastly. Infiltrator becomes very fun as soon as you have actually that gun. I pair it via Cryo-shots and simply watch guys shatter via a solitary heatswarm before they are even in selection to engage the rest of my squad. All my armor was either 10% weapon damages or 5% weapon damages + 10% headshot damage.

All my armor was either 10% weapon damage or 5% weapon damages + 10% headswarm damage.

Cryo Ammo is absolutely a choice substitute for Tungsten Rounds. In ME2 Cloak + Tungsten Rounds/M-98 Widow = Everything Died

for ME3 I entirely recommfinish Cryo Ammo, Tactical Cloak, Energy Drain, and also the Babsence Widow. It"s beyond beastly.


Even on Insanity BW will certainly one-swarm any kind of non-shielded enemy out of stealth. Get HK/Armax pieces rather of a set.


I assumed the Black Widow (M-98?) that you pick up fairly than buy ends up being much better than the one you have the right to purchase? I played as an Infiltrator and also ultimately bought the one from the specter requisitions and also remember being disappointed that it wasn"t as great when completely upgraded as the various other Babsence Widow. I"ll pop earlier into my game to check, however I"m pretty sure that is the case.

Edit: M-98 Widow does not have actually black in the name. My negative. Also, you don"t discover it till a fair ways right into the game, so take that right into consideration. It is pretty a lot the a lot of effective sniper in the game though.


hoossy: Yeah, I edited my article to clarify a little bit. I won"t spoil anything for you, however you pick up the M-98 Widow on a primary story mission (if you pay attention and also don"t miss out on the gun). Having offered it and also the actual Babsence Widow, I regretted buying the Babsence Widow after I currently had actually the M-98. That Babsence Widows expenses some severe credits.


Subjugation: The Widow is bolt activity while the Babsence Widow is semi auto. I like the Babsence Widow also if the recoil provides making use of the semi auto usemuch less.


SmasheControllers: Duly listed. I think my favorite rifle was actually the Javelin, but you pick that up on the tail finish of the game. It has actually such an awesome firing sound though ...


Babsence Widow is THE gun of me3. Thats ALL I provided in ME3, I was an adept and as soon as I obtained it tbelow was no require for biotics anyeven more, of course playing K/M helps me headswarm everything in sight in split seconds, I do not understand just how simple sniping is on consingle.  In coop I"m repetitively first in points as an Engineer through the blackwidow and also sniper upqualities, freeze+snipe repeat. No need for a sidearm. I actually do better via just the babsence widow equipped and also nothing else bereason the powers charge up quicker. 


Subjugation: The Widow is bolt action while the Black Widow is semi auto. I like the Babsence Widow even if the recoil provides utilizing the semi auto useless.

The 3 round magazine saves time reloading.

Also the max rounds is favor double.


gain the rifle, the armor sets aren"t that excellent anyways, you desire to stack up weapon damage armor pieces in your N7 armor collection.

I wouldn"t bother with a Scope unmuch less your a soldier using Adrenaline rush. To a lot of the game is close quarters and also the baddies worth a sniper round relocate to much/quick, imo.

I used the Barrel (weapon damage) and also the scope (greater accuracy) mods for all my sniper rifles in the game. I was regularly picking opponents off via headshots as they gotten in each area. Many type of times they weren"t also in variety to communicate my teammates. Something satisfying around watching a bunch of enemies run one after the various other right into a space and simply picking them off 1 at a time as they arise.

for ME3 I entirely recommfinish Cryo Ammo, Tactical Cloak, Energy Drain, and the Black Widow. It"s past beastly.

Can cryo ammo go past shields or something? If not it seems pointless. I"m playing on Insanity and also with the Babsence Widow traditional adversaries die in 1 headshot anymeans.

: The Widow is bolt action while the Black Widow is semi auto. I choose the Black Widow even if the recoil makes utilizing the semi auto useless.

What i carry out is simply zoom out for a separation second. this resets the slow mo dilation and also clears the need to wait for recoil during slow mo.It still functions out to be a lot faster to fire then waiting for normal Widow reload.

I used the Barrel (weapon damage) and also the scope (greater accuracy) mods for all my sniper rifles in the game. I was often picking enemies off through headshots as they entered each location. Many times they weren"t even in variety to engage my teammates. Somepoint satisfying around watching a bunch of adversaries run one after the other right into an area and also simply picking them off 1 at a time as they arise.

Scope doesn"t affect sniper rifle accuracy, the bullet will constantly go directly in the crosshair regardmuch less. You deserve to honestly carry out the specific very same picking off without the scope because of just how tiny many locations are. But scope renders it clunkier in close quarters. imo the Concentration Mod is method preferable, much better sluggish mo and more damage. it stacks via both soldier and infiltrator slow-moving mo.
