How to save EVERYONE on the suicide mission: **Minor crew spoilers*

#1Xcon3Posted 1/27/2010 5:33:35 PM
1. Every crew member must have a loyal status
2. You must have researched every upgrade for your ship (offensive+defensive)
3. Complete all side missions and all resource gathering you want to do BEFORE starting the IFF quest.
4. Complete IFF quest, after completion the only thing you should do is Legion's Loyalty quest.
5. After Legion's loyalty quest, pick the option to immediately go after the crew

6. Send your crew members as follows:
tali in vents
grunt escort crew back
garrus leading first secondary squad
Miranda leading second secondary squad
Jack doing the barrier bubble


After doing everything listed here, you should get the full, complete, EVERYONE survives ending (including non-party-members).


Obviously this is not the only way to do it, but it should guarantee success.

Don't need ALL ship upgrades, just offensive and defensive ones. Don't need med bay for example.

So many people died when I did it =[

I sent:
Tali in vents
Thane escort crew back (accidently)
Garrus leading first secondary squad
Grunt leading secondary secondary squad
Mirando doing the bubble

When it asked for the secondary secondary squad, I thought it was asking for who was going to lead Chakwas back, so I picked Grunt on accident :(. It was all fine up to the point of rescuing Chakwas, but after that it all fell apart.

This is the fate of my crewmembers:
Garrus died from a swarm of those flying things right before we got in the door. He was one of my favorite characters =[
Grunt died after barely making it through the door with the 2nd team
Mordin was just shown dead after everyone was running away

I might just reload from an old save and do it the right way.

Question though:

You said do the Suicide Mission right after the crew members are captured. Does it matter if I do sidequests before? Because I was kind of messing around with other stuff before I did the final quest. Is that why Chakwas said we could've saved everyone if we got there earlier?

Since you did not go after the crew right after they were captured, that is why you lost some of them.

IFF is the actual quest name, so don't worry about it till you see the quest...
