This is a replicaun from the game Mass Effect. Highly accurate and lethal sidearm. Effective against armor; weak against shields and biotic barriers. Upgrades the Predator heavy pistol.
The Carnifex is a favored sidearm of mercenary leaders and Eclipse mercenary tech specialists. An expensive but powerful weapon. Its marketing materials feature a charging krogan with the slogan, "Don't you wish Carnifex was at your side?"
The M-6 can be obtained while recruiting Mordin Solus on Omega. Mordin gives it to Shepard when the commander arrives at the clinic. He tells Shepard it was from a dead Blue Suns mercenary.
Squad Use Edit
This weapon can be used by Jack, Jacob, Miranda, Mordin, Tali, Kasumi, Liara and Wilson.
Player Notes Edit
Serves as a high-calibre, high-recoil "Magnum" type pistol of Mass Effect 2.
Although dealing increased damage over the M-3, the M-6 has:
A slower firing rate
Much more recoil and a slower recovery rate
Less magazine and less spare ammo capacity.
The M-6 deals a total of 2,049.6 damage as opposed to the M-3's 2,678.4 total damage. These values are based on base damage values and default ammo counts
Using Cryo Ammo may help to offset the Carnifex's very low ammo supply, as frozen enemies take twice as much damage and therefore, fewer shots to kill.
