What? I don't believe that, a Tresher Maw would get annihiliated in 2 seconds against a Reaper.
Of course, it's just the audacity of it that I like.
There's this giant legendary Thresher Maw in Tuchanka that will face off with the Reaper. They say it will constrict itself around the Reaper and drag it into the sand. Whilst in the sand, there's this laser show, so no bets as to who wins yet.
Though my 50,000 credits are on the Reaper. I mean they're smart enough to build the Citadel and Mass Relays, but stupid not to shoot a Thresher Maw in the head? And the smallest Reapers are already 500m in length, granted the full length of the Thresher Maw goes to the body as well that goes for metres underneath the ground.
I was kinda hoping that the Krogan find a way to tame the Thresher Maws, then ride them like the Fremen rides Sandworms in Dune. And for some reason, the Maws can fly into space and spit acid at the Reapers. Wrex riding the legendary Thresher Maw.
And after all that, the Illusive Man reveals himself as the leader of the Reapers and transforms into a Deathstar, then the game ends like the Battle of Endor.
Yea, its just that is strains crudelity when I can take down a Tresher Maw in Mass Effect 1 with my souped up future APC and suddenly they become a legit threat to a Reaper?
I would assume it's 'only' one of the smaller Reapers not a leviathan like Harbinger. It's likely just a component of a larger trap as well. I don't think for a second Shepard is going to pull a Paul Attredies and ride one into single combat with a Reaper. Then again that would be exceptionally badass...
There's this post in other forums, jesting about Thresher Maw Husks.
I think if that happens we're screwed beyond reason. Add Thresher Maw Reaper for more badassness.
