Looking back, Sovereign is an example of some of the inconsistencies of the series. I can understand that Sovereign was harder to kill than other Reapers in ME3 since no one was prepared to fight a Reaper back then, but has anyone else noticed that Sovereign's lasers came from it's tentacle-legs instead of that eye/weak spot from ME3?
@Bruxae: I thought about that too, but if you look at all the Reapers who use their laser in ME3, all of them have pretty much the same design. Not that I'm complaining though, I definitely prefer this design over Sovereign's. If I had to guess a reason as to why they did this, I'd say it's because Bioware needed the Reapers to have a weak spot and not having a freely usable laser in all their legs, which would make them quite overpowered.
