Mass Effect 3 N7 Challenge ‘Operation Silencer’ detailed

BioWare has announced the details for this weekend's Mass Effect 3 N7 Multiplayer Challenge.

Cerberus defectors have verified key intel on Reaper banshees to help provide us a vulnerability to exploit. Banshees are created from a specific kind of asari that cannot be replaced quickly, so we are diverting forces to focus on an all-out banshee extermination effort.

This task is an onerous one, and many of you are right to dread contact with these particular foes, but rest assured that we are prepared to reinforce your battalion with reserves. The vorcha want in, and as soon as they complete combined-arms training with our technically-skilled personnel, we will let them loose.

Your allied goal is to kill 3,000,000 banshees.  Upon successful completion you'll be rewarded with a Victory Pack.

Your squad goal is to survive until a full extraction on any map against any enemy on gold difficult.  Completing this will grant all squadmates a Commendation Pack.

This weekend challenge will begin on Friday, May 11 at 6:00 p.m. PST and last until Monday, May 14 at 5:00 p.m. PST.  It will be available for Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation, though BioWare has noted PS3 users will not see the promotion screen due to a "known issue".  Don't be alarmed, PS3 users will still be participated in Operation Silence.
