Electronic Arts (Bioware) is going on the rampage this weekend against the Reaper faction with “N7 Challenge Weekend” on Xbox 360 and PC. The squad level and community level carnage starts Friday, 3/16 at 5PM PST and ends Monday, 3/18 at 5AM PST. Are you good enough to wear the uniform of the N7 special forces? Get up, marines! Grab your assault rifles and frag some Reaper flesh for the cause. Now! Your mission briefing is below:
Any player who is part of a squad that beats the Reaper faction on Silver difficulty or better will unlock one Commendation Pack. This means that at least one member of the squad must be extracted at the end of the mission — this will earn all squad members the reward. Each player can earn a maximum of one pack and each pack contains a random N7 Arsenal Weapon. Originally only available as single-player weapons via the N7 Collector’s Edition, these multiplayer variants will be exceptionally rare and are not obtainable through regular purchasable Reinforcement Packs. The Commendation Packs will contain one of the following guns at random: (1) N7 Crusader Shotgun, (2) N7 Eagle Pistol, (3) N7 Hurricane SMG or (4) N7 Valiant Sniper Rifle.
Destroy as many brutes as possible — if the multiplayer community kills a combined 1 million brutes within the hours of the challenge, all players will receive a Victory Pack as a reward.
All rewards will unlock on Tuesday, March 20, at 5:00pm PT. You must redeem (open) your packs in the multiplayer store menu within seven days of receiving. If you do not redeem these packs within the allotted seven days, the packs will expire and cannot be restored. To participate, all players must enable the data tracking option in the game (options > online > upload gameplay feedback > make sure it’s “ON”). If this is set to “OFF” your completion and/or contribution to the challenges will not be tracked and you will not receive any unlocks.
