Mass Effect 2’s Cerberus Network, the game’s DLC interface and cutesy message delivery system, brings a few new items your way courtesy of a certain unscrupulous human interest group. Pick up the free Cerberus Assault Armor and Eviscerator Shotgun now:

Cerberus Assault Armor
Cerberus assault armor is designed for shock troops, turn the tide of battle against creatures or forces that would decimate normal soldiers.
Increases heavy weapon ammo capacity by +10%
Increases shields by +10%
Increases health by +10%

M-22a Eviscerator Shotgun
The M-22a Eviscerator Shotgun is a longer-range shotgun with armor-piercing loads. This design also violates several intergalactic weapons treaties, so the M-22a is not distributed to militaries.

The stats bonus on the Cerberus armor makes it one of the best in the game, provided you don’t mind sheathing Commander Shepard’s beautiful head in that ghastly Halo helmet.

If you’re not impressed with the game’s existing helmets, you could always head over to Hellforge, grab a handful of free promotional codes via Dr. Pepper, and sign up for a trio of new headgear. If you thought the Death Mask looked silly, wait until you don Dr. Pepper’s monster goggles.

In related news, EA’s promising something “far reaching” for the Mass Effect universe in early 2011, which one would hope describes something more substantial than a new character or hover tank. Could this be one of Mass Effect 2’s rumored full expansion packs?

Stay tuned for updates. In the meanwhile, brag about your No One Life Behind achievement on our message boards.
