After the carnage of the Battle of the Citadel, Alliance officers commissioned a new rifle for their ground forces. A variation of the popular Avenger design, the Valkyrie is now standard issue for new recruits. Exceptionally well-crafted, accurate, and packing ample firepower, the rifle is a hot black-market item when it surfaces.
The Valkyrie is powerful when shot at a point blank range, because with the right timing, the double shot can instantly break the shields of a Geth Hunter.
It is recommended to use the Valkyrie with a rapid firing weapon like the N7 Hurricane to counter enemies when cornered at close range.
Although powerful and precise, the N7 Valkyrie is a fairly heavy assault rifle and can only be upgraded through Commendation Packs or by ultra-rare awards. Classes that are more reliant on powers but still seek a precise assault rifle should consider a lighter rifle such as the Vindicator or Geth Pulse Rifle.
