So, Mass Effect 3 - Insanity... posted 3/15/2012 8:18:10 AM
It's crazy! INSANE! However, I found a little bit of a 'cheat'(?).
With guns, it takes forever to kill even a cannibal. With Dark Channel (Javik's power that you can give to Shepard) you can make instant-kills.
Dark Channel reacts to every single other Biotic Power. So, Dark Channel + Throw = Biotic Explosion; DC + Warp = Biotic Explosion; DC + Shockwave = Biotic Explosion... instant kill against everything without shields.
My biggest concern is the final mission on Earth, where you eventually get swarmed by 4 brutes and like 7 Banshees all at once... *shiver* But we'll cross that bridge when we get there... IF we get there.

Yes, I cheated but hear me out (Credits to CH's trainer ). That's the point, I cheat but I do not spam at all, I just give all my resources to my CPU allies and only spawn units when absolutely necessary, that's all.
Ally AI's do not gain the huge resource bonus that the enemy AI receives on Insane difficulty, and now thanks to me they do, and so they go on a rampage even bigger than theirs.
I have one army to defend my own base and randomly spawn 1~3 squads in critical locations (It's still 2 VS 3 without my help, after all). Oh, and I have a no-limit mod to completely remove the population cap and unit restrictions from ALL players (and the AI knows this, as you can see), so that's technically not cheating.
