It DOES kill them, at least with me
^^Hunh. Not with me. It could be organic enemies or geth, every time I run someone over it just tosses them into the air, but their shields and hit points remain exactly the same.
^ Strange. I'm very used to running over enemies with Mako or Hammerhead... infantry dies or gets injured, Armatures and Colossi fall and have to get up. Land Raider 17:35, November 6, 2011 (UTC)
I don't know whats up with your game, but running troops over will kill them and running over heavier enemies will damage them. Maybe you were looking at the wrong enemy or something, try it again and see if it works.
I have never managed to kill anyone outright by ramming them with the Mako either, but I guess the amount of damage it does depends on difficulty level, whether they collide with other obstacles after they go flying and most importantly whether they use immunity at the time. Immunity is so hilariously stupid in ME that I have several times been in the position of blasting a Mercenary, who was using Immunity at the time, at point blank with the Mako's canon, only to see the dude literally propelled in the air across valleys and hills and landing safe and sound about a mile away where he wasn't even visible from where I shot him. I am not even kidding, I had to go searching for the bastard with the Mako's radar just to find where he had ended up and finish him off on foot, as all this punishment had taken only about 20% of his total health. So, you not making any kills by ramming with the Mako doesn't surprise me at all. TiberiusYakushev 20:33, November 6, 2011 (UTC)
It's entirely possible to kill infantry by ramming them with a vehicle, however running them over at low speed will do absolutely nothing except knock them over. I don't know if Armatures takes any damage but the Colossus doesn't take any damage at all from being rammed. Can still be useful to knock it over so it can't shoot at you...
