Do you even cover ?

After dying for the 23rd time on the highest difficulty, I spent 15 minutes or so wiggling the mako through the rock formation just before. (Hit it straight on, and wiggle very gently left and right, until you pop sideways, then gun it, btw.) Then I murdered them all. :3

I remember using the Mako to kill the Colossus. I either shot Colossi, or jump on them with the Mako XD

It's usually funnier to jump on them with the Mako and kill them that way.
Skianous Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Geth Stalkers don't like Kaidan's "Push" and "Lift" power. Once you know that, the Colossus is the only real pain in the ass. Mainly because by the time you fight it, both of your squadmates are taking a nap at the center of a crater.
RadicalDanny Featured By Owner Edited Aug 17, 2015
During that fight as soon as the cutscene is over, move all the way to your left and out of line of sight of the geth tank.

Then have your companions aimbot the Geth stalkers as they jump into view... ^^

And here I thought I was the only one! I think I've fainted.

OH MY GOD I HAD THIS PROBLEM!!!!!! Those damn jumpy bastards
BrYttBRatt Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2014
It's my first playthrough and I'm currently stuck at this part.  I feel better now that I know I'm not the only one having a hard time here.  And yeah, WHY NO SKIP BUTTON?!

Maybe I should stop reading this comic here until I get further ahead so I will appreciate the upcoming jokes more.

Holy shit was this part hell for Engineers...
springwalker Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2014
It's easy to get the Mako through the rocks...just jiggle it a little it'll work.
RadicalDanny Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015
That's what she said!

You're using Kaiden, there's your problem right there XD
Skianous Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
"Push" and "Lift" are *extremely* effective against Geth stalkers, so unless your Shepard is biotic, having Kaidan in your squad on Therum is actually an excellent idea !
Infini0n-007 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2013

nah. the armature was pie. I think it ever only managed to hit me like... I think once, in all my playthroughs.

it was the jumpers that drove me up a wall. no matter where you hid they always had some magical headshot device that just Could NOT MISS!!!!

demonicpegasus Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This was my reaction aswell XD So true
valkarie16 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013
Oh my gosh I hated having to see that cut scene over and over!
SweetyTeety Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
OMG, so glad I wasn't the only one... Is it awful that I look EXACTLY like the player? Glasses, slightly-be-mulletted head nad all? 
zbscullawl Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013  Student Writer
i got to the point i saved after every seen i could... cuz of the critical mission failures
Seeshi-suin Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2013  Student Artist
Man, that was the WORST combat in the ENTIRE trilogy!
Arthurknight17 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2013
LOL. I drove my Mako all the way into the fight. Never had the trouble. xD
StormerTheHedgehog Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2013   Writer
that fuckin armature gave me so much trouble
anderi6 Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
I feel ya...
diannaa Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013
Holy fricking shit that cutscene drove me bonkers. I repeated that mission like over a bajillion times.:iconenragedplz: At one point I screamed so loud in ragequit that I actually woke up my dad who is a heavy sleeper. Good times

I can freaking relate!
Artep89 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013
Ya, went through the same thing as well -_-
Amoenna Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Student Writer
I was able to squeeze the Mako through, after having to push forward at max speed, then reverse a little, then jump, and repeat. Didn't really use it much though. I got up to the cutscene and immediately dodged behind a crate and attempted to kill a few of the geth. When Tali and Kaiden went down, I turned around and ran towards where I parked the Mako. Pulling up the mission computer screen, I realized that I could save at that distance, so I did. No more cutscene for me~ Once I was able to get Tali and Kaiden to my position once they revived to heal, I ran back to the crates and killed off the rest, including the Armature, then saved again. XD

Oh my goodness! I am laughing so hard at this page I am crying. This was TOTALLY me.
JelenaEllethil Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The same reaction as yours in the last panel. God, how much I dislike it. So near to kill it off than kabooo! and the same stuff again.
StillDormant Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
Oh I'm sooo with you on this one. I lost count on how many times I died during that part and I kept having to go through the friggin cut scene (which was longer than my stint after it)
kato42 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012
Why couldn't they make the auto save point AFTER the damn cut scenes?!

This is a problem all the way through the series.

Baelickoris Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012
hmm once again, i just tended to drive through anything that got in my way, ignored the rest.
AngeloidAlpha Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I feel your pain...this happened to me too ! :pissedoff:
Ejunknown Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
THIS HAPPENED TO ME. SO MANY TIMES. Especially as a vanguard, with useless biotic powers; you're screwed. x"D
memoryman15 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I tried the game on it's hardest setting, up until this point I was fine, THE CUT-SCENE, THE CUT-SCENE!!! :iconargplz:
FritoDan Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012
so, so true. [adds to favorites]
Shinji-Hinomu Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012
On the Xbox version (not sure if still possible in PC), you can wedge the Mako through the hole where it's supposed to stop you. I did it on accident my very first playthrough and now I do it every time.
ADM-Ntek Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012
i does not work on the pc version i tried.

:| Just had this earlier today...
Ullervoinen Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
One efficient way to punish us who failed at that point of the game, more than once...
theant4 Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh my gosh I just laughed out loud. This is exactly what happened to me :XD: Although if there's one plus it's that I had plenty of chances to get good screenshots during that cutscene...
kaatjekilled Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012
OMIGOD I HATED that cutscene
TheShepard256 Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012
It isn't the first if you do Feros or Noveria first. That also happens to me when I decide to recruit Liara first (basically every time except for my "Renegade playthrough").
JuMiKu Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012
Thanks for reminding me of this particular fight. Damn unskippable cutscene.
neXXXusTheUber Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I totally hated this.... and the fight with Benezia (On my 2nd Playthrough)
Granten Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012
Skip button? Why would you ever want to skip any of the thousands of cut scenes they put into their games. ESPECIALLY all those great, unskippable, scenes of docking or leaving a space station....I'LL KILL EM ALL!
LucieOn Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
LOL, I was exactly like this at that scene :D I wanted to punch the guy who thought non-skipable cut-scenes are a good idea.
darthsquirt2 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I had no trouble in open battles, the ones indoors killed me over and over.
I hated Noveria
de-groseille Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2012
That cutscene, god. It made me decide ME wasn't for me and give up on it altogether for a couple of months. Ah, returning to it, having completely forgotten the plot and controls, I had no idea, who the hell was that blue chick in the nearest dungeon. Fun times.
