Shooting isn’t one of the first events that comes to mind for most people when they think of “Olympics” or “athletes.” In fact, it’s always been kind of an oddity: valued, but never popular. Regardless, it’s in there, and after three epic installments in the Mass Effect universe, we can’t but feel that Garrus’ combat specialties are viewed in much the same manner. Whereas some call themselves “rifleman experts,” Garrus refers to himself “Turian Agent who played a vital role in the war against the Reapers.” Which would you rather have handling a rifle?
His ability to hit foes from any distance, in any environment, would make him a sure-fire gold medal Olympian. Medaling in this event is decided by fractions of a second, as athletes take out clay targets at various lengths in unpredictable conditions. Having trained since fifteen when he joined the Turian military, Garrus has faced more threatening foes and situations countless times beforehand, making clay targets seem like a walk in the park.
