This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

When firing in the Mako, pull the left trigger and click the right thumbstick. That'll bring up a scope type sight, complete with range finder. Makes combat in the Mako do-able.

When fighting the Geth Armatures and similar beasties in the Mako, you can jump over their energy balls rather easily by firing your jump jets at the right time. Makes the Colossus fights rather simple.

You can also ram them and knock them down, or if lucky have them stuck on you while firing at them!

I finished four and a half play throughs. I didn't even get all the Achievements. It can be done, but - here's the hint - plan, plan, plan.

Don't play the "multiclass" characters if you're after Achievements, stick to Solider, Adept or Engineer.

Know what crew members you want to get the Ally Achievements for and get those allies in your party before you start on any of the other quests, including the little Citadel ones.

Enemy snipers in Insanity mode suck ass.
