Mass Effect 3 Operation Raptor Weekend Event

Posted on March 28, 2012 AT 10:36am

THE BUZZ: Operation Raptor will be taking place in Mass Effect 3′s multiplayer this weekend.

This weekend, beginning March 30 at 5 PM PST until April 2 at 5 AM PST, players will gain a bonus if they manage to promote two characters in the game.

BioWare’s description of the event:

“The Reaper horde is growing, so we must as well. Effective military strength needs to increase, and veterans must train conscripts so that they, in turn, can train others.”

- Allied Goal: Promote 150,000 characters. Victory Packs awarded to all players upon successful completion.

- Individual Goal: Promote 2 characters. Commendation Pack awarded to individual players upon successful completion.

“During Operation Raptor, all promotions will result in an increased N7 rating.”

EGM’s TAKE: Two multiplayer packs are up for grabs this weekend, free if the entire community bands together towards a common goal. Not quite as impressive as the 25% bonus XP on offer last weekend, but still worth logging on for. Especially if you were planning on playing some multiplayer anyway. If you’re planning on upping your N7 rating quickly then this weekend is the perfect time to get on and play a few games.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
