Mass Effect 3 Reveals Pre-Order Bonus Gear

Considering Shepard’s track record, saving the Earth empty-handed might not be an impossible feat. That said, it’s bound to be easier if you’ve got the equivalent of a small planet’s arsenal sitting in your spaceship.

Ready to start stockpiling some Reaper-killing weapons? Starting today, gamers who pre-order Mass Effect 3 will get a free – and deadly – gift: the M55 Argus Assault Rifle. Destructive at any range, the Argus boasts quick burst-fire to ensure ammo conservation and maximum accuracy on the battlefield:

Fans who pre-order Mass Effect 3 for the PC through Origin will also receive the AT-12 Raider Shotgun. This beast of a weapon fires a large pellet spread ideal for close-range combat. Designed for superior rapid fire, the AT-12 also allows for optimal recovery time between shots.

If you're ordering through GameStop or EB Games, you'll be opting out of the AT-12 and picking up some N7 Warfare Gear instead. Lock and load with the N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle, then slip into your N7 Defender Armor, a suit that integrates extra storage for your thermal clips, extra punch for your weapons, and more. Take a look at the set in the video below:

Don't miss this chance to give Shep the upper hand; pre-order Mass Effect 3 today to claim your free bonus gear.
