This weekend sees the next Mass Effect 3 multiplayer event getting underway, with Operation Silencer, which tasks the community with shutting up 3 million shrieking Banshees. Just remember not to get too close to the gangly mutated asari Reapers, as they'll kill you with one horrible biotic scream.

The Allied Goal this weekend is to dispatch 3,000,000 Banshees, while your Squad Goal is to survive a full extraction on any map on Gold level difficulty. Successfully completing the Allied goal will reward all players with a Victory Pack, while completing the Squad Goal will unlock a Commendation Pack.

Mass Effect 3: Operation Silencer will be commencing on Friday, May 11th at 6PM PST until Monday, May 14th at 5PM PST. Set your “Upload Gameplay Feedback” setting to “On” in the online options to participate in this N7 Operation. Also: "Please note that due to a known issue, PlayStation 3 users will not see the promotion screen but they will be participating in Operation Silencer  and will be rewarded."

Oh god... Like killing a ton of Phantoms wasn't annoying enough, you have to throw in a challenge to kill a ton of the most annoying enemies in the game? Ah well... Still gonna play it this weekend. :]

These tons of multiplayer stuff is all well and good, but...did they forgot there is actually a singleplayer part in this game too or are they pretending it never happened due to the ending?

#1 Phantomes are more annoying. Banshees is one of the eaiest enemy in the game. They just strike fear when they scream, so you think:"Oh shit"

@6: The best thing to hear one of your teammates say: "Why are we playing this shit? Let's go play a good game instead."

@1 Phantoms are easy to kill. Just throw Stasis on them and blast them with your gun.

@2: it's just the butthurt fans that feel this way (about a CREATIVE plot choice, not a technical problem).

@9: it's sad that you have nearly 20,000 posts on this site and troll like a disgruntled teenager. Grow up.
