In the DLC, the alien Javik introduces a particle rifle.

Is there any reason to arm him with that instead of using the best rifle in the game (found midway through the game)? It's a pretty lame rifle all things considered.

Does it even make any difference on squad effectiveness?


No, there are no extra bonuses for matching a particular character with a particular weapon.

One good benefit of equipping squad mates with this rifle is that it fires a continuous beam so its easy for you to see where the enemies are when your squad mates shoot them.

  • Very nice answer. The rifle does crap damage though. I end up playing every single game with a fully upgraded Black Widow going headshots only. I have a problem – dsp_099 Oct 29 '15 at 3:09

    @dsp_099 I highly recommend trying at least one playthrough as a charge/nova vanguard carrying nothing but a light smg or pistol. – l I Oct 29 '15 at 20:55
