Welcome to Part 5 of my Mass Effect 2 Platinum Trophy quest! You can check out Part 4 here.
I… really love the Infiltrator class! I’m so glad this Platinum Trophy Insanity quest pushed me to try it out. There’s nothing sweeter than cloaking and landing the perfect headshot on an unfortunate enemy. I’ve gathered tons of sniper upgrades and damage boosts at this point. I can pretty much one-shot any lesser enemy, even if they have full shields up. If I get caught dying outside of cover, I can cloak to get the hell out of there. I’ve even used the cloaking ability to get an objective without having to kill all the enemies. Awesome. Insanity difficulty is more fun instead of frustrating now. Yay!
And yes, this is taking a lot longer than my Mass Effect 1 Platinum quest, but that’s okay. Other things in my life take priority over video games these days. Here’s how Week 7 went down, which covers August 25th to August 31st 2019.
WARNING: Lots of !!!SPOILERS!!! below. Stop reading and scrolling if you don’t want the Mass Effect trilogy ruined for you. You have been warned.
I have one last recruit before the Illusive Man triggers the Horizon mission. Yep. The Archangel mission is still a pain in the ass, especially the shutter part where I called it a week. I left Jack upstairs to defend Garrus so it’s just me and Miranda vs the Blood Pack mercs downstairs. Dick the Adept got through it on Insanity so I’m sure Dick the Infiltrator will get through it in Week 8.
The upcoming Horizon mission is where I gave up on my Adept Insanity attempt. I’m anxious to see if my new Infiltrator skillz will be enough to get me through it this playthrough.

Really like what you read and feel like financially supporting Livid Lightning? HA! Probably not, but hey, here’s a couple ways to fuel my writing pipe dream!
My name is Ellen, and I've been babbling on the interwebz about video games for over 15 years. Video games themselves have been a large part of my life since 5-year-old me first encountered a SNES in a children's hospital. Fun times... Video game escapism is still the #1 coping mechanism for adult me these days.
