The Razer Mass Effect 3 Collector’s Edition peripherals and gear come with a redeemable code to unlock bonus item packs for Mass Effect 3 multiplayer, including the deadly Collector Assault Rifle to give you a leg up on the Reaper invasion. If you have already unlocked the Collector Assault Rifle, this code will strengthen the weapon further. Visit social.bioware.com/redeem for instructions on how to unlock your new upgrades.

The Collector Assault Rifle uses the same principles as a human assault rifle, but its organic components clearly set it apart. Its power source appears to be an internal organ with biotic capacitance; its ammunition resembles pellets of metallic enamel that strip shields off enemies with deadly efficiency.

What are Reinforcement Packs?

Reinforcement Packs represent “supply drops” that players can earn for use in Mass Effect 3 multiplayer matches. In effect, each pack contains a random assortment of weapons and weapon upgrades, character unlocks, and in-game consumables such as damage and health boosts.

Are there different types of Reinforcement Packs?

Yes, there are different levels of Reinforcement Packs. Some packs have a higher chance of containing rare or powerful unlocks.

Are the items and upgrades obtained through Reinforcement Packs permanent?

Weapons, weapon mod and character unlocks/upgrades are permanent. Some contents are consumables that can only be used once per multiplayer match and don’t carry over into new multiplayer sessions. These are clearly labeled as such. Note that items obtained in the demo will not carry forward into the full game.

What are the chances of receiving a particular item or upgrade?

There are common, uncommon, rare and ultra-rare items – items that are rare and/or powerful are differentiated visually when they are obtained upon opening a pack. The items included in each pack are selected at random. Higher value packs have a higher probability of selecting the most valuable items.

Can items found in Reinforcement Packs be used in single-player?
