Player Notes Edit

  • The Rank 6 evolutions give your melee attacks burning/freeze attributes. This means that you can use your melee attacks to setup Tech Combos (Fire/Cryo Explosion), although the need to first melee an enemy to setup the combo and the need to follow this up with a lethal detonator greatly limit its usefulness. Note that your Fire/Cryo melee attacks cannot be used to detonate combos.
    • In multiplayer, due to a recent update, Fire and Cryo Explosions do not require death of the unit to activate (Power Combos) greatly increasing the effectiveness of the N7 Paladin Sentinel.
  • Note that, when the Rank 6 evolution of Shield Mastery (Cryo Shield) is combined with the Rank 6 evolution of Snap Freeze (Damage & Weakness) this leads to a 100% weakening of armored targets for 5 seconds. This can be especially useful on harder difficulties where boss level enemies like Geth Primes and Cerberus Atlases have much more armor and require more effort to be defeated.
