Mass Effect 2 'Firepower' Weapons Pack DLC Released

Commander Shepard has received three new weapons for zir fight against the Collectors in a new downloadable content pack named 'Firepower,' on sale now.

The pack arms Shepard with the 'Phalanx heavy pistol,' which developer BioWare says "hits like a hand cannon but features increased precision," the semi-automatic 'Mattock' rifle and the triple-barrelled 'Geth Plasma Shotgun,' which "allows users to charge up each shot for increased damage or just blast away rapid-fire style." Splendid.

The Firepower Pack is available for download now on PC and Xbox 360 at the price of $2 (160 Microsoft Points, 160 BioWare Points). A story-based DLC pack titled 'Lair of the Shadow Broker' is currently in the works, teaming up Shepard up with Liara again.

    I'm curious how these weapon packs sell. I played ME2 when it came out and really enjoyed it (far superior to the first game in my opinion), but a new gun isn't an incentive for me to go back and play.

      I have been going back when I have multiple chunks of story type dlc to play through but never bought anything but the story stuff. However I might pick up these guns with Lair of the Shadow Broker.

        yeah I'd agree. sounds like how I did DA:O and Awakenings. I'll refresh the game with the next real content delivery.

      I wonder how they derive a price for these DLC. Bioware is running low on polygon resources? People are consuming soooooo many game resources that the extreme burden forces Bioware to charge $2 for 3 in-game weapons.

      This guy I know torrents the dlc, and then he sneaks into peoples homes at night, or while at work, and installs them, that bastard.
