Part of a series of threads for people to pour their advice into; specifically on how to effectively deal with bosses.
I also figured I'd jump on the "Rate the X" bandwagon while I'm at it :P

This one covers Phantoms! :ph34r:

Noteable Weaknesses:
- Stasis
- Submission Net
- Lash w/ shield penetration
- N7 Slayer palm cannons
- Shadow Strike
- Dark Channel / Reave
- Sniper fire to the face
- Biotic Charge followed by Heavy Melee
- Reegar Carbine, Acolyte, or Scorpion
Being the only un-armored boss, the Phantom is highly susceptible to biotics once it's barriers are removed.

Sexyness:
Cyber-ninja babe who's constantly trying to impale me on her sword? 8/10

Fear-Factor:
When spotted from a distance = 2/10
When being melee'd by one from out of nowhere = 9/10

..  damn!  Too slow.  Was going to post a witty and marginally off-color comment about the phantoms having sacks on their back, but :ph34r:

Phantoms are not sexy.

I can just see them having been bunny boilers before Cerberus huskified them.

If I'm playing a character that has stasis, then I gleefully seek out the phantoms. Otherwise, since my sniping / aiming is generally poor, I avoid them like the plague, since their mini-barrier negates a lot of the other techs you can spam at that.

Not sexy.  They should be the ones impaled by MY sword, not the other way around.  I'm so confused.....

Ah, thanks.

Seriously though, I don't get everyone's thing for Phantoms. All I feel for them is revulsion and an urge to fling them off the map with Throw, Lash or a BE.

Now the Nemesis on the other hand...she seems like a nice girl. One I would totally go for if I could see myself dating a zombie. And if I were not into men.

Agreed, but even then you can see they have lovely-shaped bodies.

Sometimes its fun to mix things up a bit, experiment. Girls can be pretty good with a sword Posted Image

Well the fact that you prefer men might  be a factor in your overall evaluation about her apperancePosted Image

Her body is rocking and I like girls that top Posted Image

phantoms are more into penetration..
nemesis like to tease.

ever hear a nemesis refer to herself in 3rd person? kind of sounds like 10 minutes. but they are really saying
NE-ME-SIS. she makes you want to say her name because she repeats it all the time. nice girl? more like one big tease. Posted Image

My top 10 favorite ways to kill Phantoms...

1. Shadow strike
2. Batarian falcon punch
3. Acolyte + Charge
4. Falcon + Flame turret
5. Reave
6. Stasis + headshot
7. Scorpion
8. Flamer
9. Lash repeatedly
10. Any power combo detonation that makes it through her defenses

Sexiness: 9/10 - Quite charming (when she's attacking someone else). She certainly knows the quickest way to a man's heart (and lungs, and spleen, etc.).

Hmm. I suppose you might be right.

At least the Nemesis has some grasp of foreplay though. :pinched:

Phantoms and Nemesis are not sexy, they look like husks under their suits, like all the other cerberus troopers:
