In Mass Effect 2, weapons fell into six categories:
- Assault Rifles
- Sniper Rifles
- Submachine Guns
- Heavy Pistols
- Heavy Weapons
Are these types the same in Mass Effect 3? Are there new weapon types?
Also, upgrades in Mass Effect 2 are not weapon-specific modifications. Instead, the player obtains upgrades through research which apply across an entire weapon type. For example, an Assault Rifle Damage upgrade will boost the damage output of all assault rifles that the player owns, not just a specific model.
Does this research oriented system exist in ME3 or are they only weapon specific?
