A blockbuster title isn’t classified as such until it’s earned pre-order incentives through various retailers. Well, Mass Effect 3 finally earned its stripes today after EA Games and BioWare announced the game’s pre-order rewards through retailers GameStop and EA’s digital platform, Origin.

Players who choose to pre-order their copy of Mass Effect 3 at participating retailers will earn themselves the M55 Argus Assault Rifle. In addition, if you choose to lock down your copy of Mass Effect 3 at GameStop, you’ll be rewarded with the N7 Warfare Gear: a pre-order package that includes the N7 Valkyrie Assault Rife and N7 Defender Armor. Gamers who choose EA’s Origin service will lock themselves in for the AT-12 Raider Shotgun.
