Favorite multiplayer character is the Krogan Adept, because he's fast, tanky, and destructive.
My favorite character is N7 Paladin. What I don't like about him is that he is listed as sentinel and has no biotics like others. What I like about him? Everything else. So many glass explosions, goes through walls! But the omni shield is what makes him unique and if used well, it can be really fun and benefit the squad really good to keep them safe. Also has best looking armor.
As some may already know, my favorite character are the Volus, but my personal favorite is the Protector Vanguard. Unlike the other more passive Volus classes, this one has a very "in your face" gameplay, and as the name suggests, he can really protect well his team and dart through the entire map with Biotic Charge to aid his allies. Feels really good to be able to enable your teammates to do awesome plays and keep them alive while contributing for the fights as well (instead of just spamming Shield Boost).
My favourite character from N7S is N7 Shadow, maybe she is squishy, but she is "humanoid size enemies" quick slayer, and have very good melee, the best in entire ME3M, the best melee character in both Mass Effect Multiplayer.
I think N7 Slayer will always be my favorite. I'd consider him the highest risk character, sacrificing shields but without the iframes of the other vanguards. Very high power damage if you can stay safe, and using the Talon you can fire Phase Disruptor at the normal speed while playing off host (essentially getting the combined DPS of both). Sadly restricted to mostly defensive play on platinum, and while the sword DR is nice if you get into a pinch it's not great for damage, and heavy melee is a very specific finisher. He kills bosses surprisingly fast with incendiary + power amp, and murders dragoons super hard.
Quarian Male Engineer. Me like space gypsy mangineer. Shocky booms good. Take Talon shootgun pistol. Powertool rounds III, handgun amp III, power stronger-er IV, and boom ball capacity.
My favourite character is female novaguard because she's simply amazing, I mean, she's rly fast and she has the best powers, you can kill every enemy in a second and you don't need a specific team to use her entire potential, your teammates can be biotics like asari justicar or techy like N7 Paladin and it doesn't matter because she can makes a lot of explosions and you're almost immortal because charge and nova allows you to face almost every enemy with no worries at all and that's really cool. With the right build she's the best for full team matches.
Trying to pick a single favorite character is difficult and it is like trying to pick your favorite child, but I'll choose the Turian Soldier because all Turians are good at everything and can make almost every weapon viable. A close second would be the Turian Cabal cause she can zoom around and shoot poison ballistic blades and doesn't afraid of anything.
My fav is probably the asari justicar. she can crowd control and stack DoTs with reave. her biotic bubble can debuff, give dmg reduction, chain combos in quick succession the more enemies caught in there, and stagger even bosses on cast, which is pretty neat for a panic button or hit-and-run revives. give her a medium-heavy weapon with warp ammo and she'll shred the tougher enemies, while an acolyte + pull build is fun to mess around with. plus, bc of reave's dmg reduction, she's got some survivability. she's also the beefiest asari.
There are three characters that compete for my favorite, but I choose the Asari Valkyrie Sentinel because there's a story behind it that relates to this group. From its introduction, I never really "got" the Asari Valkyrie Sentinel. Tried a number of different builds with various weapons to no avail. None of the videos I watched or anything I read about the character helped. She just didn't make sense to me. One day, I'm looking through Solo Stories, and the first video I watched was what Avina had posted. Seeing that and the accompanying build, a light bulb went off as I finally understood how to play her. The Asari Valkyrie Sentinel became one of my favorites as well as one the characters I play the best. On this N7 day, it makes me sad thinking that I'll never get an opportunity to thank her for showing me how to play the character.
I have like 5 different favourite characters, so it's hard to choose one for me. But I think I'll go with fat Turian Sentinel. He's got everything you need. Warp - great power and debuffer. Plus you can cheese it with incendiary glitch. Overload for shields and staggering mooks, plus lovely tech explosions. Tech armor for protection and damage boost. Passives are superb, as on every fat Turian. No dodge is not a problem coz he's very tanky and can forgive many mistakes. Play Turians, they are good.
My faforite Character is N7 Destroyer, because he is like Chuck Norris, playing mostly this character, he is slow but have a good damage output i think.
My favorite character is the Salarian Infiltrator. I like to snipe a lot, and I also like the idea of dealing a lot of damage to an enemy with just a couple of shots in a short amount of time.
My fave is the Asari Justicar. With a 66644 attack-bubblé build she's effective against any big or small enemy, especially phantoms. She's got great crowd-control, and range too. A very fun character to play on any difficulty; a 'must have' on biotic teams.
I really don't have a favorite, there are so many fun kits. Lately, my most frequently played kits are Cabal, Sexbot, Vorcha Hunter, Krogan Sentinel... seriously, the list goes on.
It's maybe not the most exciting one, but I'd argue it'd be the Quarian Female Infiltrator. I got her quite early when I started playing and I've just stuck with her since then out of habit. She might not have a whole lot of noteworthy things compared to some other characters, might be a bit squishy and doesn't have the best crowd control, but she has enough for me to handle any situation by myself, and with how long I've been playing her I just kinda default to her in most circumstances since I know her limits and how to play her effectively for my playstyle. Also I guess I have a bit of headcanon by now to back her up as well.
In a nutshell though, Duration Cloak keeps her safe, Sabotage staggers for easy headshots and gets hackable enemies off my team's back for a couple of moments, Sticky Grenades make tissue paper out of most armoured enemies, Acolyte strips shields/barriers, and the sniper rifle (Viper on bronze/silver, Widow on gold/platinum until I get the Black Widow) handles everything else with relative ease. Headshots for days.
My favorite character is Geth Soldier, with excellent shield recharge, and with a flamer that burns long. What's more, I reload my shotgun while the flamer works it magic by hitting the flamer as soon as I empty the magazine, thus saving time.
I like playing all the characters really, aside couple 2 i won't mention(play them also, but trully dislike em!), so i'll go by numbers taking a look at my CP to find out what's most played. Havok!!! interesting, wouldn't guess.
But my impession is vanilla Human Soldier, something that can't be measuerd that way. And my most fun way (possibly not best performing obviously) of playing him is Winter Soldier - Cryo Ammo with Assault rifles/Concussive Shot 5a.
Favorite character would have to be the Vorcha Sentinel. As if his Grab animation and Screaming wasn't enough, His immense combo abilities to trigger while on cooldown with his grenades make him a formidable addition to any team.
Favorite Character: Alliance Infiltrator Unit (i suppose), Why? Because she's an in-your-face tank with well-planned instant revives.
Favourite character: Human infiltrator, because I find the rhythm of the class to be relaxing.
My favorite character is the geth trooper soldier , the reason i like him is because he can burn things.
The character ive been playing the most recently and having the most fun with is the human infiltrator with a widow. i always try to go for headshots and this build is very unforgiving for when you miss, and highly rewarding for when your aim is on point and crack heads left and right.
My favorite character is the Asari Valkyrie Sentinel. I love her mobility and her power combo’s.
I love so many characters but my favorite is N7 Fury. Of all characters she has highest risk highest reward. She is the in face character, but unlike Valkyrie, she can also do chain of biotic explosions from safe distance afar as her dark channel can jump from one target to another. Her outfit is amazing, reminds me of Kasumi a lot. She is capable of moving fast on the field by going through solid objects. And to many unknown, Fury's light melee gives her damage reduction, and it also stun locks targets allowing her aura to kill over time. Light melee can be used to even gain immunity to Banshee's sync kill, so she can be locked in place, allowing your team to kill banshee from safe distance away, while at same time increasing all your squad's damage to Banshee. Even Asari can be jelly of Fury's biotic power.
