Mass Effect 3 Weekend Operation

The BioWare Blog outlines plans for Operation EXORCIST, another special weekend event for Mass Effect 3, their action/RPG sequel. Here's how this will work:

Allied Goal: Kill 1,000,000 Cerberus Phantoms
Squad Goal: Survive until extraction on any map and any enemy on Gold difficulty.

Successful completion of the Allied Goal will grant all players a Victory Pack.
Successful completion of the squad goal awards a Commendation Pack to all squadmates.

Operation Exorcist will run from 6:00PM PST, Friday April 27th until 5:00AM PST, Monday April 30th. Exorcist will be available on PC and Xbox 360 only. Please remember to set “Upload Gameplay Feedback” to “on” in the online options to be able to participate in Operation Exorcist.

The MP annoys me due to having to buy equipment via either credits won by playing or your credit card.

The best bit is, when you "buy" stuff (with either real or game money) you don't actually get to decide what you buy. You buy packs and the items are random. Amongst other stuff, you have a chance of getting one random weapon mod in a 20k credit pack which should take about 2-3 half-hour games to earn the credits for.

This wouldn't be so bad except weapon mods make a substantial difference, at least to a soldier class. In SP my assault rifles have mods that add at least 20% to damage and bypass at least 50% of armour. In MP these mods haven't turned up and it's like I have a pea-shooter. Oh, well I do have Barrel III for pistols, which I don't use, partly because the pistols I have found are crap. I did get armour-piercing bullets as a 1 mission upgrade thing and instead of the usual >25 kills badge I get the >75 kills one.

Speaking of which, where are the most useful soldier powers like armour-piercing, disruptor and fire ammo?

I'm enjoying the basic concept as a fun little diversion, but the above are really irritating.
