Wolverine is wearing his classic yellow outfit. This is current Wolverine.

Commander Shepard is a soldier, and has all relevant upgrades (hard shields, skin-weave, ect.) He is wearing default N7 armor. His loadout consists of an M-76 Revenant, M-9 Tempest, Black Widow sniper rifle, N7 piranha, and the M-77 Paladin. All powers are maxed out. They are fighting here.

Tell me if I forgot any details.

Wolverine has no healing factor?

#3 Edited by TheBournePoster (741 posts) - - Show Bio

@wolverine08: On second thought, that would be a brutal stomp. Let's give him his healing factor.

Bump.

Shepard wins, I think he has the right firepower here to beat Logan and I fail to see how Logan will close up to him.

Don't know Shepard well enough to comment. Lets just hope he has the reaction to counter Wolverine's offensive speed.

Can't Logan smell him out?

Wait, what? Logan should stomp most of the time. No armor in the Mass Effect universe, no matter how modded out it is, is capable of standing up to adamantium claws, and kinetic shields won't do anything either since they only block objects moving above a certain velocity. Logan's not stabbing and slashing faster than a speeding bullet. Gunplay isn't going to bother Wolverine either. Shepard's only shot is the Soldier class's Cryo Ammo since it could incapacitate Logan temporarily at least. Nothing else is going to stop him.

Logan's also quite a bit stronger, faster and more skilled. That can't hurt.

But he forgot some of his skill. :P....

@monsterstomp: He has shown great reaction speed and also more during his Adrenaline Rush state he's able to dodge bullets while firing at the same time.

@ddecourt: Well Wolverine has surprised Spider-Man and even Quicksilver with how fast he actually is.

#12 Edited by Ddecourt (803 posts) - - Show Bio

@monsterstomp: Yes, I'm sure. The thing with this fight is that Shepard could keep Logan at bay with his firepower, his future high-tech weaponry isn't exactly something that Logan can take without punishment, though I don't see Logan going down easy.

shepard has the skill set to keep the fight at a distance.. but Shepard has much more to lose if he slips up

@citizenbane: What? No, not at all. Shepard will have plenty of chances to keep Wolverine at bay, with the stopping power of his sniper rifle and his concussive shot. Speed wise, his adrenaline rush will even that out and let him dodge and get his shots in. As you said, cryo bullets could work, and I think probably will.

I would give this to Shepherd, he will have either cyro or pyro ammo active and either one would incapacitate Logan.

Although I'm always wary about translating gameplay into actual combat.

@thebourneposter: You realize this is Wolverine we're talking about, right? The stopping power of the Black Widow or the Concussive Shot is nothing he hasn't shrugged off a hundred times. Shepard has never done anything during his Adrenaline Rush that Logan hasn't bettered.

@citizenbane: They aren't going to hurt him, just slow him down.

I think people are giving Wolvie too much credit, Sheppard's weaponry is pretty powerful and so diverse and able to do some serious punishment, even to Logan, Logan is really gonna have a tough time here and even if he closes in, Shepard has shown to quick on his feet able to dodge multiple attacks.

Slow him down long enough for what? Shepard to realize that he's facing someone conventional weaponry can't put a dent in, or at least a dent that won't be gone four seconds later, and then suddenly switch to Cryo Ammo since that's the only shot at even surviving Shepard's got in this matchup? Literally every single showing for Shepard featuring Cryo Ammo is a gameplay mechanic. 90% of the Commander's combat tactical ability comes down to subjective gameplay experience and gameplay mechanics. Logan's dodged people far more accurate than Shepard has ever been, he's stealthier by quite a bit and a lot more likely to get the drop on Shepard than vice versa, he's got more experience, he's really holding every single advantage possible in this matchup while all Shepard has got is the off-chance he might figure out he's got to use Cryo Ammo.

None of Shepard's weapons are capable of inflicting any kind of lasting punishment to Logan, and up close it'll take Wolverine roughly three seconds to disembowel the commander. Going toe-to-toe with people like Kai Leng is a far cry from going toe-to-toe with people like Wolverine.
