    PARA/GADE              [PRGD]
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Paragon & Renegade choices (or para/gade for short) is a conversation system
     setup, letting the player choose how to play Commander Shepard. This impacts
     many things.
    
     Selfless, altruistic, and understanding choices typically garner paragon
     points, which (1) help heal Shepard's scarring (2) can reclaim loyalty on
     allies who've lost it (3) unlock paragon-specific options, allowing one to
     get more paragon points faster. Ruthless, hateful, dismissive, and selfish
     options give renegade points, which (1) make Shepard's scarring more prominent
     (2) may affect certain situations with love interests (3) unlock renegade-
     -specific options, which give more renegade points if chosen.
    
     The "answer wheel" appears during dialogue and features all the current
     choices the player can pick. The NW and NE options are "paragon" by nature,
     while the SW and SE options are "renegade" by nature. The left/rightmost
     options show ambivalence and are considered "neutral," giving no points to
     either gauge. The leftmost neutral slot is also used for investigation
     purposes, which can lead to more para/gade options or codex entries. [NOTE:
     Certain choices give the points; there isn't a for-sure way to get them
     without foreknowledge. Also, sometimes the conversation is geared toward one
     outcome and, say, the "neutral" slot choice may give P/R points.] Here's
     an fake example of an answer wheel:
    
          |ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|
          | Please have some pie! -.  _________  ,- Want some pie?     |
          |                         \//ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ\\/                      |
          |          Investigate. --((         ))-- I'm eating pie.    |
          |                         /\\_______//\                      |
          | Touch my pie and die. -'  ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ  '- My pie! MINE!      |
          |____________________________________________________________|
    
     The NW/NE options are typically "paragon" by nature, while the SW/SE are the
     "renegade" choices. The leftmost is for investigatory purposes, while the
     rightmost is mostly ambivalent (neutral) by default. However, because there's
     no way to tell which options give para/gade without foreknowledge, a player'll
     often have to retry to get the desired outcome. [Some answer wheels don't
     give six options like above, so, say, the rightmost option could give paragon
     points, etc.]
    
    FIELD OBJECTS          [FLDO]
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     When exploring vast new worlds, there's plenty of things, environmental or
     not, to watch out for.
    
     • Enemies -- duh, right? From measly organics to big bad Geth Colossi, there
       are tons of enemies to sift through, and their arsenals all differ.
    
     • Ammo Clips -- ME1 may have had unlimited ammo, but that's all gone for this
       game. Defeated enemies may drop ammo clips -- shimmering cylinder-like
       objects -- that partially replenish all normal weapons carried on Shepard's
       person (AI-controlled allies don't take clips). Heavy weapons ammo is not
       replenished in this way, however; the player has to find crates labelled as
       "power cells" to get more. While heavy weapons have some of the worst ammo
       capacities in the game, don't despair! There are ways to upgrade those
       crappy carrying limits until y'won't even remember they existed.
    
     • Explosive Canisters -- hitting one of these a few times blows up, dealing
       area damage to any friend or foe in the area. It's always best to take 'em
       out beforehand or detonate 'em tactically. [Containment cells, explosive
       crates, and such variants follow the same rules.]
    
     • Raw Elements -- sometimes there are cases of mined ore that can be robbed,
       adding 'x' amount (usually 150-1000ish) of the 4 main elements to the ship
       supply. There's no downside to taking these and they never require hacking,
       so help yerself.
    
     • Weapons Lockers -- inspecting one of these refills all current ammo, as
       well as letting one change weapons at leisure. Repeatedly switching one's
       heavy weapons is a good way to get the "Master at Arms" achievement, by
       the way.
    
    NEW GAME PLUS          [NGMP]
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     After beating ME2 once, a player can unlock this mode, which allows them to
     replay the game with some of their former file's things. To access the mode,
     choose to start a new game, then "import ME2 character" and use Y-button to
     switch careers. NGPs carry over the following things, with bonuses pointed
     out as such.
    
     • Character's level
     • All armor and weapons (including heavy weapons)
     • Assigned skillpoints (can be redistributed)
     • All EXP gains x1.25 [BONUS]
     • 50,000 of each element [BONUS]
     • 200,000 credits [BONUS]
     • Choose a skill during character creation [BONUS]
    
     NOTE: NGP characters cannot change their class, although those imported from
           ME1 still can.
    
    IMPORTING          [MPRT]
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     If a gamer has completed Mass Effect (1) and has a cleared save available,
     they can import that character into the 2nd game, rather than creating a new
     Shepard. Here's a list of things of ME1 bonuses.
    
     • [If import Shep was under Lv50] 1000 Experience + 2500 Elements each, 20000c
     • [If import Shep was Level 50+ ] 2000 Experience + 5000 Elements each, 30000c
     • [If import Shep was Level 60  ] 5000 Experience + 10K Elements each, 50000c
     • Bonus starting para/gade points depending on ME1 Shepard's nature (190 max)
     • 100,000 credits (if ME1 character obtained Rich achievement)
    
     These bonuses do stack with NG+ bonuses, too. Other ME1-specific events that
     bring gravity to ME2 are as follows -- SPOILERS FOLLOW:
    
     • Helping Gianna Parasini on Noveria
       - Opens the "Gianna Parasini" sidequest on Ilium
     • Saving the majority of people in Zhu's Hope
       - Opens the "Medical Scans" sidequest on Ilium
     • Killing Wrex on Virmire
       - Saving him has Wrex as chieftain on Tuchanka
     • Killing Rana Thanoptis on Virmire
       - Saving her gives her a cameo during "Recruit the Krogan"
     • Kaidan Alenko or Ashley Williams dying on Virmire
       - One meeting on Horizon and a few lines elsewhere about the past
     • Whether or not Shepard saved the Council at end of ME1
       - Changes whether or not the council is human-dominated
     • Whoever was picked to be humanity's ambassador in the Council (at ME1 end)
       - Changes a few lines here and there.
    
     These events affect ME2, either with a sidequest about them or just a few
     lines from random NPCs (like in the case of the rachni queen on Noveria). Some
     ME1 events, like saving minor NPCs, may earn thank-you emails later on.
    
    TIPS N' TRICKS         [TPST]
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     • SAVING. A fundament of any game, saving is very important, and this applies
       even if auto-saves are turned on. As you'll soon find, auto-saving takes
       place only when going back to the Normandy, to a planet/location, or after
       certain storyline-based events. That leaves a whole lotta space in-between,
       and if the player isn't diligent about saving, it can get pretty annoying
       if things go south. The game keeps track of the # of saves, but it affects
       nothing so don't feel intimidated. ME2 gives the option to restart missions
       entirely if something goes awry, but it's still good to have an alternative
       save to fall back on.
    
     • COVER YOURSELF. The enemy has no problem ganging up Commander Shepard, and
       unlike allies, if s/he dies, it's automatic game over. Sidling up to a flat
       (vertical) surface lets the commander back up to it, which not only provides
       cover and quick-fire opportunities around corners, but gives a safe vantage
       point to see enemies around without being pumped full of plasma. Just make
       sure your back/flank is cleared first or someone can just walk up to the
       team and play firing squad. [Shepard automatically takes cover when s/he
       encounters an applicable object while sprinting.]
    
     • BOTTLENECKING. No, not slide guitar! Some enemies will swamp the party on
       many sides, which is an obvious disadvantage. So what to do? Find a bottle-
       -neck, such as the access corridor the squad went in. By forcing the enemy
       into the tight space ("bottleneck"), it gives perfect firing opportunities
       by all allies and robs the enemy of any cover. This is not only a good all-
       -around tactic but can be used as leverage if the allies aren't equipped
       that well (which usually comes with being low-leveled). Note that not all
       enemies are going to bumrush a corridor, so sometimes Shepard will have to
       command allies to stay put and act as bait to draw enemies closer. Since
       many uncharted planets' bases are exactly the same structure-wise, this
       tactic will save a lot of grief.
    
     • TEAMMATE SKILLS. Since Shepard's cohorts have fixed jobs, this means that
       certain combinations may be good or bad (although all can work technically).
       Some people -- like Wrex and Garrus -- are good at both weapons and biotics,
       and this balance reflects in their skills and armor. Others, like Kaidan &
       Liara, are best as support and aren't that useful in a straight-out fight.
       Since the player can pick which job Shepard is, it's wise to surround one-
       -self with allies who best compliment that setup. Either way, having
       someone around with First Aid, Decryption, and Electronics skills will be a
       good idea, so don't count those support units out yet.
    
     • CHOICES MATTER. Shepard can be played as an altruistic saint, a neutral
       fence-sitter, or a heartless bastard -- middle ground, however, gives noo
       benefits. Doing good deeds and showing self-sacrifice will give points to
       the Paragon gauge, while treating fellow races like crap, showing disdain
       for others' plights, and acting like a loose cannon will give "Renegade"
       points. There is no wrong way to play the commander, but be warned: some
       situations can go awry unless Shepard's able to talk his/her way out of it!
       [In the early going, investing points in the class-based para/gade booster
       skill is a good idea.]
    
     • JOURNAL IT: The journal keeps record of all missions and sidequests, even
       which step they're currently on. Check it frequently for a refresher.
    
     • MISSABLE UPGRADES: Many, many, many places are one-time-only romps, and
       automatic scenes can ruin some exploration. Basically, don't put off
       searching until the end! And think about saving before opening certain
       doors, approaching large wide-open spaces where bosses may lurk, and so
       forth.

                         |_|                  |___|________________________|
    
     Down the hall, Miranda informs Shepard that some mechs are bustin' in, so
     take the M-100 Grenade Launcher (huzzah!) and blow up the fools when they
     crash through the lower bulkhead. Note that heavy weapons ammo is NOT
     replenished by weapons lockers or ammo pickups, rather by specific crates
     called "power cells"...and even then, only a handful of shells are obtained.
     The ammo can be used with any heavy weapon and has an "exchange rate" with
     other types -- three grenade launcher shells can mean 'x' amount of fire w/
     the flamethrower obtained later on, to just name one instance.
    
     Down the elevator, sprint through the flaming geyser and unlock a few doors.
     A nearby office has a few datalogs to listen to, plus a wall safe to hack.
     ME1 had a simple Simon-like minigame for all its hacking, but ME2 switches it
     up a bit: here, to fix the circuit, Shepard must match the 6-8 nodes...a
     memory game, basically. [Save beforehand until y'get the hang of it; reload
     if it fails.]
    
     Using the nearby stairway, continue until a Cerberus employee (Jacob) is
     found fending off a mech attack all by his lonesome. This is one of the first
     times where dialogue choices can influence Shepard's Paragon/Renegade points.
    
     [+2R] I need answers!
     [+2P] Just a few questions...
     [+2R] I'm tired of taking orders!
    
     The fight can be finished off by ordering Jacob to use his Pull biotic power.
     After, Jacob becomes a "subordinate" which basically means Shepard can give
     him orders and start screwing around with his skillpoints. Through the next
     doors, there'll be light resistance as Wilson radios in his position. Down the
     twisting hall, eventually they'll find the good doctor in Server Room B.
    
     [+2P] Let's get you out of here.
    
     Shepard will have to heal the injured comrade before moving on. Take some
     medigel from the first aid station, then use & select Unity from the power
     wheel to heal him. 
    
     NOTE: There's a glitch here where Shepard takes the medigel before the task
           updates, so it points to the wall station but Unity is still locked.
           This is easily rectified, however; it's just worth mentioning if you're
           too hasty.
    
     Following, hacked mechs storm the room and Wilson's only ability (Overload)
     is necessary to clear the explosive canisters blocking the way.
    
     [+2P] That sounds familiar...
     [+2R] You lied to me.
     [+2P, +2R] I'll never work for Cerberus!
     [+2R] Fine. Let's go.
     [+4R] What are you after?
    
     Through the next door, another datapad can be hacked for credits. This one
     features the game's other minigame, similar to the memory-oriented one except
     with segments of code. Many snippits of code appear and Shepard has to pick
     the right one three times in a row to hack -- picking the wrong one is a
     step backward, while hitting the red "X"-ed out portions screw the whole
     thing up. If the time limit ends, the amount of credits able to be obtained
     starts decreasing. There's really no trick to this besides (1) practicing
     making this much easier (2) the codes are colorized and have idiosyncracies
     in their shape, so try focusing on that.
    
     Down the hall, the shuttle bay is reached. There are two specific mech squads
     to fight here: one near the entrance and one near the upper walkway, a group
     of 4-5. There's a datapad to hack here as well, if y'want. Opposite there,
     approach the door to have Miranda show up and dispose of the traitor.
    
     [+2R] I knew he was lying.
    
     Then it's time to blow this joint.
    
    SHUTTLE RIDE
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     After escaping the base, Miranda and Jacob ask a few questions to make sure
     Shepard's noggin is in tiptop shape. The questions differ depending on the
     protagonist's background, as well as events from ME1 if the player's using an
     imported profile.
    
     [+2P] [Each top-right choice]
     [+2R] [Each bottom-right choice]
    
    DOCKING STATION
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     After escaping, everyone ends up at some unnamed place, although it's listed
     as the research station (same as before) in the savefile. Either way, the
     task is to talk to the Illusive Man downstairs. If the player's obtained DLC
     armor by now, use the armor wardrobe on the wall to get the "Fashionista"
     achievement early.
    
     Downstairs, it's conversation time with Shepard's new employer. As y'can see,
     making nice and agreeing with Cerberus, Shepard's old nemesis, gives renegade
     points, while remaining skeptical of IM's motives give paragon points. This
     is how it'll be for a long time.
    
     [+2P] You don't know me.
     [+2R] I need some answers.
     [+2P] You're not my friend.
     [+2R] Skip the pleasantries.
     [+2R] Not bad.
     [+2P] I'll need a lot of convincing.
     [+2P] Maybe I believe you.
     [+2R] Where do we start?
     [+2P] Do I have a choice?
     [+2R] I'll find the evidence.
    
     Afterwards (optionally), Shepard can talk with Miranda...
    
     [+2P] Thanks for resurrecting me.
     [+2P] I'll do my best.
     [+2R] You sound jealous.
     [+2P] We don't have to be enemies.
     [+2R] Is there a problem here?
     [+2R] What's your problem?
    
     ...and Jacob.
    
     [+2P] Those colonists need my help.
     [+2P] I didn't join Cerberus.
     [+2R] I'll reserve judgement.
     [+2P] Yes.
     [+2R] I'm not sure.
     [+2R] No.
     
     Taking the door near where Shepard started finishes this mission, and for
     those who imported ME1 saves, it's a good overview for all the bonuses
     obtained. [Mission reward: 3750c, 1000 EXP]

     Don't forget to start tweaking Miranda and Jacob's skillpoints, if y'haven't
     already. This place is mostly deserted, with only two areas having programmed
     mechs to fight (use Disruptor Ammo and Miranda's Overload for easier wins).
     There's a few junkpiles with salvagable credit caches, though, so feel free
     to plunder this ghost town. Eventually, the Cerberus squad will stumble upon
     a quarian investigation team spearheaded by an old comrade...

     [+2R] Forget it.
    
     Once the teams part ways, downstairs there's a hackable wall safe and a lone
     mech guarding it. Outside, recon annoying mech drones will be flying around.
     Don't bother wasting tons of ammo on these morons -- use Jacob and Miranda's
     biotic powers (and Shepard's techs) to avoid careless shots. Overload, like
     usual, is especially good against these suckers. This battle repeats down the
     next house's stairway. There's a medkit here, although if Shepard's already
     at full capacity, a minute amount of credits is received instead (in case
     y'think the legend for the map above is wrong). To breach the loading docks,
     direct the subordinates to either side of the door by pressing left/right on
     d-pad at the designated spots.
    
     Immediately following, the Cerberus squad must fight off a giant YMIR mech,
     armed with rockets and heavy machine guns. It's also protectedy by shields
     and armor, so biotics like Pull won't work. Take cover behind a white crate
     stack (don't make the mistake of hoping a "fragile crate" will stop bullets!)
     and turn on Distruptor Ammo if known. Miranda's Overload is a good skill and
     she'll spam it constantly if the "Squad Power Usage" option is set to "yes."
     Whatever y'do, don't leave cover to fight it mano e mano -- it'll chew fleshy
     organics up pretty easily. It only has a barrier and armor, no 3rd health
     bar. 
    
     Afterwards, search the two side houses for goodies and inspect the YMIR's
     ruins for a Heavy Weapon Upgrade, the first of five obtainable. Upgrades are
     not usable until a head scientist is recruited, which will be one of the next
     tasks coming up. This is a ONE-TIME-ONLY visit, so scour before continuing!
     In the final bay, Veetor is holed up like some loony, but none of the answers
     given matter paragon/renegade-wise. Might as well give Veetor back to Tali,
     eh?
    
    ILLUSIVE MAN COMMUNICATION
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Time for debriefing once the boss comes a-knockin'. The choices differ
     slightly depending on whether Veetor was taken or released into Tali's
     custody, but none affect paragon/renegade points.
    
     Mission ends once our fave pilot rejoins Shepard. [Reward: 10000c, 1000 EXP]
    
    NORMANDY SR-2
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [+2P] Joker won't like this.
     [+2R] AIs are dangerous.
     [+2R] Glad to hear it.
    
     The Normandy SR-2 is Shepard's new "gift" from Cerberus, and s/he'll be able
     to take it around the galaxy just like the previous game. Shepard's private
     cabin is on the top floor; the 2nd floor has the galaxy map and armory; the
     third floor has crew quarters and Chakwas; the lowest floor only has a few
     engineers right now. If a player's wondering why certain parts of the ship're
     inaccessible, don't worry -- each invited character settles into a different
     part of the ship, and those places are where they can be talked to.
    
     Mass Effect 2 culminates in a "suicide mission," which goes well depending on
     how many people are recruited (and subsequent loyalty gained), and badly if
     Shepard's preparations are done in a slipshod manner -- ignoring invites,
     lost loyalty, ship upgrades not done, etc. Basically, the majority of the
     game is preparation to this one big event. There's plenty to do before then
     though, with the main objectives right now being...
    
     • The Veteran [Zaeed] -- Omega (requires Zaeed's DLC)
     • The Professor [Mordin] -- Omega
     • Archangel -- Omega
     • The Warlord [Dr. Okeer] -- Korlus 
     • The Convict -- Prison Ship Purgatory
     • The Master Thief -- Citadel (requires Kasumi's DLC -- see section LY05)
    
     Omega's the next stop since there's three people to recruit there (or just
     two, if Zaeed's DLC isn't obtained yet). RECRUITMENT CAN BE DONE IN ANY ORDER
     so don't feel pressured to follow the walkthrough's order (although some of
     the post-crew dialogue may change if y'don't).
    
     A little paragon/renegadeness before leaving...

     Asking the mess sergeant, Dr. Chakwas, and lowest-floor engineers what they
     need gives the "Special Ingredients," "Find Brandy," and "Find F&A Couplings"
     side missions. There are various points of interest to see as well, and they
     often add codex entries (which go towards the Scholar achievement). After the
     ship's acquainted with, check Shepard's private terminal -- either in the
     cabin or by the galaxy map -- to see what's what. The Anderson one arrives
     after a bit; any others are typically DLC-related.

    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Access the galaxy map and this is the default area, where Omega is located.
     For intercluster movement (the green ring at the periphery of the map), the
     Normandy needs to buy fuel. This can only be bought at Fuel Depots, and one
     nearby fits the bill...although there's no need to leave this system quite
     yet. Omega is the next stop, although feel free to scan/probe the unexplored
     planets nearby.

     Omega is a giant asteroid city, and since it plays host to three of the
     recruitable characters, there's a crapload of things to do here. Clicking
     left analog can bring up the place's map, although one's been provided here
     as well. [NOTE: Only certain places have maps to show in this manner; if the
     map can't be accessed from the main menu, the area doesn't have one.]
     Here's a list of sidequests available at the station:
    
     • Talking with Kenn of Kenn's Salvage starts the "Struggling Quarian" quest
     • Later, Ish can be found near the loading dock ("Packages for Ish" quest)
     • Aria gives "The Patriarch" quest after Archangel or Mordin's recruited
     • Talk with a barkeep in Lower Afterlife to start the "Batarian Bartender"
     • "Datapad Recovered" is started during Archangel's recruitment

     After the Batarian "welcome wagon" is done, Zaeed can be found right down the
     corridor, manhandling a prisoner.
    
     [+2P] Welcome aboard.
     [+2R] Report to the Normandy.
     [+2P] No. He didn't.
     [+2R] There's always a catch.
     [+2P] We can do that.
     [+2R] If there's time.
    
     Zaeed goes to get settled in on the Normandy, although if y'want him ASAP,
     simply go to the ship's docking door and "request" his presence. Yes, he's
     really that easy to get! Additionally, the mission he mentioned earlier is
     actually his loyalty one, and can be done right now if y'wish. [Finishing it
     unlocks his Inferno Grenade ability...pretty awesome.]
    
     NOTE: Being a DLC character, Zaeed does not have interactive conversations
           like the rest of the team, and instead just rambles on about past
           missions for fun. Basically, there's no paragon/renegade chances when
           seeing him on the Normandy.

     The trek to Mordin's hospital starts at the quarantine sector's entrance,
     so loot the nearby element zero box and move past the turian barricade. One
     guard warns of vorcha and Blue Suns troopers beyond, so expect a fight! [Use
     Incendiary Ammo if available.] After dispatching a dumb duo, Shepard can talk
     with a nearby Batarian victim.
    
     [+2R] Leave him.
     [+5P] [Heal Batarian when prompted.]
     [+2P] I'm here to help.
     [+2R] I need information.
    
     Saving him earns some paragon points, while leaving him to rot has no real
     value (unless you want to steal his measly 2000c that badly). If saved, he
     eventually sends a thank-you email...big whoop, right? There's a hackable
     door nearby that lead to a slum corpse's wall safe, and further down the
     hall, a battle with some Blue Suns hiding behind a barricade. They can be
     taken out pretty easily from afar with the sniper rifle, although it's wise
     to use the 2F mezzanine nearby for better line of sight. When there dead, a
     residence nearby can be entered (hacked) and looted a bit. Talk to the
     refugees if y'like.
    
     [+5P] I'll help you get there.
     [+5R] Hiding here won't save you.
    
     Past the Blue Suns' barricade, snag the assault rifle damage upgrade and
     continue down the corridor to the next battlesite. Like before, the option
     of high ground is given for sniping, but the lower fountain area has plenty
     of cover, too. Watch out for one of the flamethrower-carrying vorcha -- he's
     quite lethal up-close! Afterwards, search the anterooms branching off this
     area to find some scummy looters in an apartment. Shepard can ignore them
     or play "catch the bullet" with their faces.
     
     [+2P] I don't like looters.
     [+5P] No...but someone will.
     [+2R] Yes.
     [+5R] If I have to.
    
     Back at the last battlesite, the opposite side leads towards the downstairs
     clinic. Loot the place, especially the medigel upgrade in a terminal, and
     find Mordin in one of the rooms.
    
     [+5R] [Interrupt and yell at Mordin]
     [+5P] [Calm Mordin down with smooth talk]
     [+2P] I'll take care of it.
     [+2R] Why can't anything be simple?
    
     Talking with Mordin earns the Carnifex Hand Cannon pistol, upgrading the
     normal one. The Carnifex has fewer ammo but packs a wilder punch; just be
     sure to aim well! [If y'don't want it, use the clinic's weapons locker to
     change back.] The optional task of finding Mordin's apprentice Daniel is also
     received 'round this time. Exit the clinic from the previously locked door
     in the reception area.
    
    PART 2: Save the Environment......al Plant
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Down the hall, a wild firefight begins in the Blue Suns' purlieu, a large
     interior plaza sectioned off by debris, with a few waves of reinforcements
     coming after most die. The structure allows plenty of flanking opportunities,
     so don't get pinned down in the center or anything. Upstairs, the nearest
     door leads to where Daniel's been captured.
    
     [+5P] Nobody needs to die.
     [+5R] Kill him, and you're next.
     [+2P] Everyone stay calm.
     [+5R] [Signal henchmen.]
    
     Paragon/Renegade options can defuse the situation, although the other options
     typically get Daniel killed. [Zaeed makes a funny comment if y'examine his
     corpse, though, so maybe it's worth it?] The room opposite this one is the
     next place to visit, leading past a small vorcha squad near a stairway. This
     leads to a large walkway area with vorcha on far-off (inaccessible) balconies,
     trying to "snipe" with rocket launchers. Take shelter on 2F and snipe those
     suckers quickly to avoid needless damage and/or casualties. A couple more
     waves appear at ground level near ventilation control's entrance, so they're
     easier to take out from there.
    
     Past a small skirmish, everyone reaches the final destination: the ventilation
     fan room. An annoying vorcha initiates conversation when entered.
    
     [+2P] Why are you doing this?
     [+2R] You're dead.
    
     This chamber's fights basically go like this: defeat a vorcha wave, approach
     a local destination, fight a wave on the way back. After the 1st pack is
     dead, turn on the fans on the center corridor -- this leaves two more machines
     to start up, on either side of this area, before the mission is finally
     complete and the cure's distributed. The remaining two fans can be done in
     any order, but Blood Pack members are both below and on the upper inaccessible
     balconies with their heavy-weapons rockets, so neutralizing them is similar
     to the previous large area's strategy. When both are turned on, everyone's
     automatically brought back to Mordin's lab.
    
     [+2P] I'm sorry. He's dead.      -.- Daniel perished
     [+2R] He got himself killed.     -'
     [+2P] I saved your life!         -.- Daniel saved/Batarians killed
     [+2R] You ungrateful little ass! -'
     [+2P] Will you join me?
     [+2R] Don't forget our deal.
     [+5P, +5R] [Successfully recruit Mordin?]
    
     Mission reward: 25000c, 1000 EXP.
    
    NORMANDY SR-2
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [+2P] Cerberus hasn't changed.
     [+2R] Cerberus does good work.
     [+2R] You think this is fascinating?
     [+2P] Yes.
     [+2R] Stay focused, Professor.
    
     After that, the doc settles in. Shepard can start purchasing upgrades once
     an upgrade is found (during gameplay) and by having appropriate amounts of
     elements, found by mining unexplored planets and occasionally in field boxes.
     "Investigating" new party members can lead them to suggest new upgrades; in
     this case, Mordin suggests an omnitool (for him) to boost tech damage +20%.
    
     There's also some new para/gade options to do with crewmembers, although the
     horribly small, white font obscures what some of 'em say [any reader who has
     eagle eyes should send me an email about what's written].

     Archangel is known to be hiding out somewhere in Omega, but his exact area is
     not known to the general public. To unearth his location, it's time to visit
     the woman who rules Omega, Aria T'Loak, who stays in the Afterlife bar's
     upper area. Approach her to start a few scenes:
    
     [+2R] Like hell.
     [+2P] Simple enough.
     [+2R] I have similar rules.
    
     Interrogate her about Archangel to learn the station's gangs are teaming up
     to kill him, and the local merc recruiter nearby (like, literally down the
     stairs) can sign Shepard up for the task.
    
     [+5R] [Brandish gun (FemShep-only)]
    
     As Shepard's leaving, some greenhorn packing a pistol walks in to the spot.
    
     [+2P] How old are you?
     [+2R] Yes.
     [+5P] [Fix greenhorn's gun]
    
     Helping the wannabe merc doesn't matter really -- forcing him to think twice
     about his decision saves his life, and later he sends a thank-you email...not
     that great. There's a space taxi near Omega's entrance (#3 on map) where one
     can start the mission to find Archangel. Like usual, once started, there's no
     going back until it's over.

    |START|      ŻŻŻ
    |_|_|_|            After the taxi ride, Shepard ends up in the gang's staging
                       area -- although since s/he's hired, they don't attack on
     sight or anything. A ways down the hall, a lounge with a few Eclipse members
     can be found. They're not important, though -- it's a message on the table
     that is. [Reading it opens the tiny "Omega: Archangel: Datapad Recovered" 
     sidequest.]
    
     In the next hall, a side door leads to a disabled YMIR mech, which is to be
     used in the assault against Archangel. Shepard has the option of hacking it
     to attack the gangs when they restore function -- this saves a lot of wasted
     time and ammo later. Without doing it, it's just another mech to scrap...do
     the right thing an' sabotage that thing. The Blood Pack's lounge is down the
     hall but there's not much to get there, 'sides a codex entry on the crew.
    
     In the adjacent area, besides a hackable datapad, a bypassable door leads to
     the Blood Pack weapon cache. There's a submachine gun damage upgrade, as well
     as a few power cells and another datapad. Next stop: talking to Cathka's
     nearby, who's trying to repair the gunship for the upcoming strike.
    
     [+5R] [Stab Cathka in the back]
    
     Killing Cathka seems to make the gunship easier to destroy later on, so it's
     always wise to put a halt on his repairs. The storming sequence automatically
     starts afterwards, with the mercs advancing across the bridge while avoiding
     Archangel's deadeye sniping. There's a gauge tracking his vitals, and it'll
     deplete as the mercs start picking away -- thus, the mission is to assassinate
     the rest of the hired help and join up with our sniper. This is quite easy
     for the most part as they're completely blindsided by the "betrayal." Take
     the tech damage upgrade on the lower floors before going up.
    
     As it turns out, Archangel is our old friend Garrus from Mass Effect 1 (I
     only "spoil" this now since he'll be referred to as such for the walkthrough's
     duration). 
    
     [+2P] It's good to see you.
     [+2R] Is that you, Garrus?
     [+2P] They won't get through.
     [+2R] Let's kick ass.
     [+5R] [Snipe a scout when looking through Garrus' rifle]
    
     Garrus' vantage point is the perfect sniping spot, and that's where he'll
     stay (AI-controlled), although Shepard can stay there with him and help pop
     a few mech scout heads. Alternatively, the downstairs floors are a wealth of
     cover and ammo pickups, and the balcony overlooking the 2F stairway has good
     position, so those are other spots to think about using. It's advised to take
     the Vindicator battle rifle on Garrus' couch since it's the best one in the
     game -- it shoots in 5-round bursts so it's ridiculously accurate, but it
     eats through ammo quickly so aim well. [Taking it now supersedes the current
     assault rifle.] Anyway, overview of the situation:
    
     WAVE 1: Footsoldiers approaching from the bridge, mixed mech/merc variety.
     Most use assault rifles but a few shoot rockets.
    
     WAVE 2: Jaroth's YMIR merc is brought out onto the bridge, and has a couple
     mech/merch cohorts accompanying its approach. If Shepard hacked the mech
     before, it'll go haywire and start shooting the cohorts nearby. It still has
     to be destroyed but this way's much easier. [Use Overload and Disruptor Ammo
     if needed. This one has 3 healthbars instead of two, since Jaroth is piloting
     it directly.] Regroup with Archangel afterwards, perhaps saving beforehand.
    
      [+5P] I'm not leaving you alone.
      [+5R] You need help.
    
     Shepard has the option of leaving an ally behind to help protect Garrus,
     which drastically increases his survivability. On the flipside, it leaves
     only two people to go take care of the remaining waves downstairs, and that
     can pump up the hurt a bit (especially on higher difficulties). Obviously
     Archangel ain't recruited if he bites the big one, and his healthbar doesn't
     replenish in the downtime, so make a calculated decision here. [If you're
     just interested in the paragon/renegade points, choose the option and then
     renege.]
    
     WAVE 3: To reach the downstairs portion, find the door underneath the ground-
     -floor stairway and take that route. There's a weapons locker and medical
     station here, so feel free to backtrack to it in case ammo gets low. There
     are three shutters to close here -- the first is easily accessible, and will
     stop any foes from flooding in that direction. The remaining two, on either
     side of that door, are past enemy-infested routes. Most foes are light-armored
     vorcha so headshots work well, 'specially with the new Vindicator. Just
     remember the waves are infinite, so work quickly, efficiently, and use plenty
     of cover. [NOTE: The enemy will disengage the shutter lock if they get a
     chance, so y'gotta keep fighting to the bitter end!]
    
     WAVE 4: Shepard automatically returns to Archangel's base after closing all
     shutters. Garm and his Blood Pack vorcha will have cut through a door to
     infiltrate the place, and are hellbent on killing Garrus on the upstairs
     balcony. Take care of the cohorts ASAP and get upstairs to help the sniper,
     since he won't be able to take much of Garm's relentless Krogan assault.
     [Biotics like Pull are great for making him an easy target.] Heal up, save,
     and talk with Garrus afterwards to start the final wave.
    
     WAVE 5: This is less a wave than it is a full-out assault! Tarak will have
     seized control of the gunship and deposits a few foot soldiers in the 2F
     balcony region, so protect Garrus (if he's hurting) and quickly take out
     everyone, especially the leader Jertha (or something, the font's too small
     to read!) who has a triple-layer healthbar. Next, some normal troops are let
     into the downstairs part via the window, so use the stairway bottleneck as
     the focus point.
    
     WAVE 6: The final section is defeating the gunship that got Garrus, who won't
     be participating in this fight (on the flipside, there's no healthbar to pay
     attention to). If Shepard killed Cathka during the preamble part of this
     mission, then the gunship should start at low health, perhaps not even a full
     bar. It's main methods of attack are (1) depositing troopers at window access
     points (2) using its mean machine-gun attacks (3) firing streams of incendiary
     rockets. It's able to flank one so switch cover when appropriate, and use
     synthetic-related skills (Overload, Disruptor/Warp Ammo) to neutralize it
     quicker.

     [+2P] No worse than usual, buddy.

     [+2R] Cerberus is right this time.
    
     Garrus will have situated himself on the crew floor, in the defenses section
     past the mess sergeant's place. When pressed for upgrade suggestions, he'll
     unlock the Thanix Cannon armament for the Normandy, which can help its
     survival later on (get it eventually, yeah?). Inspecting the icon near him
     also adds codex entries for Disruptor Torpedoes & the Javelin.

     FemShep trying to flirt with Jacob leads to no new para/gade options; Kelly
     has a fruitless p/r dialogue about cuddling Garrus]
    
     The remaining two recruits (Warlord, The Convict) are located in different
     star systems, so using the cluster's mass relay is necessary to visit them.
     So far the team doesn't have a stellar biotic character, so getting our
     imprisoned friend is a good idea.

     Down the docking corridor, a guard has an annoying gimme-yer-weapons request.
    
     [+2R] Go to hell.
     [+2R] It's not going to happen.
    
     From that point on, Shepard can walk around the vessel at leisure, with the
     destination being outprocessing. Down the way, a prison guard is overwatching
     a beating of some ruffian. Shepard can use some wiles to stop the relentless
     kicking, or tip his hat. [Para/gade choices required in part here.]
    
     [+2P] Is this necessary?
     [+2R] That's justice.
     [+5P] This is beneath you.
     [+5R] I told you to stop.
     [+2R] You're doing the right thing.
    
     The other prisoners ain't important. Outprocessing is straight on through
     the next door, but of course, nothing goes as planned -- the warden withdraws
     his hospitality and wants Shepard for his little collection. 
    
     [+2P] Let's negotiate.
     [+2R] Hell, no.
     [+2R] What about serving the galaxy?
    
     Time to bust out of this refrigerator! A few local troops storm the room in
     an attempt to subdue Shepard's squad, but the numerous desk arrays make it
     quite good in a standoff, cover-wise. And, of course, the Blue Suns enemies
     are organic in nature, meaning techs like Incendiary Ammo will murder in this
     dungeon. Play janitor with the next corridor's gangbangers and kill a techie
     controlling the cryogenic freezer; screwing with that will unlock Jack from
     stasis. Try to help her (!) fight the YMIR mechs and find she's already
     clobbered them single-handedly...g'dang. Check one of the junkers to get a
     Damage Protection upgrade, then hit the road.
    
     The next hallway has a blown-up door, leading into a large isolation chamber
     that's...uh, caught fire. A lot. Part of the walkway is trashed, and there's
     a lot of detritus around as well -- use it all as cover when fighting off
     a few escapees and the YMIR mech down the way (Overload, Disruptor Ammo,
     etc). May not even have to waste any heavy weapons ammo. Loot the room for
     upgrades and credits, then do the same for the next corridor. It's mostly
     the same deal, just with more mercs and the YMIR has three health bars. [Use
     cover under the walkways to fight the mech.]
    
     Through the next hallway, the party arrives at the final cellblock, where
     the evil warden has activated a barrier and is poised to let his flunkies
     put new holes in Shepard's hide. The barrier's strength is marked with a
     gauge, and decreases when its generators -- the devices the blue, wavy beams
     stem from -- are deactivated (being shot, obviously). When all three are
     destroyed, it's time to put the warden on ice, too. He's got three health
     bars but that shouldn't be too important. [Cohorts still enter the room via
     an inaccessible doorway, for reference, so ammo doesn't run out.] Warden's
     got a mean assault rifle, and not a burstfire type, so at long ranges it's
     less accurate...sniping him's a good idea.
    
     Once Kuril's cooked, it's time to meet Jack, although her "coercion" dialogue
     doesn't affect anything. Even if Shepard bluffs about letting her see the
     files, they'll still be anyway.

     After landing in the ruins, trek down the debris path until a lookout post's
     reached. Past the goons, there's a wounded merc whining on the ground.
    
     [+2P] Medigel change your mind?
     [+2R] Where's the warlord?
     [+5P] Get rid of them. [or] The radio. Get rid of them.
     [+5R] Reply with bad directions.
     [+5R] [Shoot merc when he defies directive]
     [+5P] [Merc isn't killed during conversation]
    
     If the team doesn't help the merc, he tries to radio his superiors about the
     offworld presence at the facility. Not killing him during the transmission
     finalizes that radio contact, and the people ahead will know it's invaders,
     not krogan, who are attacking. [This may increase resistance later on.] The
     para/gade options aren't necessary here -- shooting the guy is always an
     option.
    
     Blue Suns troopers constitute a few skirmishes down the path, often mounting
     their attacks from upper (inaccessible) walkways, so don't get blindsided.
     The 2nd fight has a few rocket-firing heavies, so take cover immediately.
     After the 3rd fight, Shepard can talk with a "friendly" tank-grown Krogan
     to open the way forward, but no para/gade options to speak of here. This
     dirty route leads to an open area of criss-crossing walkways, where quite a
     few Krogan "rejects" put up a fight. Berserkers carry rockets and fire 'em on
     a dime, so find cover and don't leave unless they flank. After, don't forget
     to search the area for ammo! Hack the stairway door to complete this lower
     section.
    
     The middle section of the area is inhabited by the same mix of mercs, and is
     not that different from the first. Be sure to snag the sniper rifle damage
     upgrade (start), one of the few available on this level. The rest of the
     hackable objects just give credits. Upon completing the middle portion, which
     leads into a small medical bay. A normal playthrough has nothing extra here,
     but if one's playing an ME1 import, Rana Thanoptis (the girl from Virmire in
     first game) will be here.
    
     [+2P] Why are you here?
     [+2R] Everyone there should be dead.
     [+2P] Try harder to avoid trouble.
     [+2R] Stay out of my way.
    
     Through the next door, the party finds Warlord Okeer hard at work. There's a
     Krogan Vitality upgrade from a hackable terminal, and unlike others, only two
     can be found, so missing one would suck pretty badly. Don't leave without it!
    
     [+2P] Okeer, I presume?
     [+2R] Names first.
     [+2R] Change your tone.
     [+2P] A tough decision.
     [+2R] I did what I had to do.
     [+2P] Will you join us?
     [+2R] Is your soldier ready?
     [+2R] I'm handing you to Cerberus.
     [+2P] Why so concerned?
     [+2R] Looks like I hold power now.
    
     Okeer stays behind while he tasks everyone with killing Jedore, the lab's
     local Blue Suns representative. She's located at the landing below Okeer's
     overwatch position, accessible by a side stair. The final battle of this
     dungeon involves fighting "crazy" Krogan rejects released from their tubes;
     a YMIR mech that activates when shot or after a bit; and Jedore, who has 3
     healthbars and fires rockets throughout the battle. Incendiary Ammo is good
     for the organic targets, while Overload/Disruptor Ammo/Warp are good for the
     synthetics. The best place to fight everything off is the row of tubes near
     the entrance, which puts good distance between Jedore and the YMIR, while
     giving decent firing opportunities. [Flanking the boss can work too.] Note
     that on higher difficulties, it may be best to headshot Jedore from afar with
     the sniper rifle, since her demise means no more krogans are released.
    
     Afterwards, return to find Okeer gone and his "pure warrior" in its test tube.
     No matter the team's hesistancy, the Krogan package is taken onboard the
     Normandy. [No para/gade options.]

     [+2P] Relax, it's sealed.
     [+2R] Keep it to yourselves.
     [+2P] So we'll be careful.
     [+2R] He gets out, we vent the hold.
    
     Shepard now has the ability to let the Krogan (named "Grunt") out of its
     tube, despite the crew's fears. Taking a self-defensive/understanding stance
     typically gives paragon points here; exerting control by force gives renegade.
    
     [+2P] He's too valuable to leave.
     [+2R] Do as I say, EDI
    
     [+2P] You'll get more than that.
     [+5P] Join my crew. We'll find it.
     [+5R] My command is your reason.
     [+2P] Stand down or else.
     [+5R] [Shoot Grunt when prompted.]
     [+2P] You leave me no choice.
     [+2R] I was being generous.
    
     When asked about upgrades, the Claymore Heavy Shotgun (Grunt-only) becomes
     available. This sucker is a great close-range weapon, although if a player's
     already downloaded the Eviscerator (DLC), it's not likely to replace it.

     Once the crew disembarks, the first battle takes place at an outdoor loading
     area. The Collectors are armed a little better than typical gangbangers, and
     a few may even have particle beams (heavy weapons classification), so take
     cover and prioritize those types first. These baddies are organic -- stuff
     'em full of Incendiary Ammo (etc.) and they'll fold like origami swans.
    
     After reaching the settlement proper, some collectors fly (!) in and bring
     one of ME1's mainstay enemies: husks! These humans have been modified by
     geth/reaper technology and have become synthetics, able to release a biotic
     blast (stemming from self) at close ranges. They're not that hard to kill but
     often appear in groups, mere cannon fodder for the more equipped foes. Loot
     the area, especially the heavy skin weave upgrade, and observe a dead husk
     down the road.
    
     [+2P] Let's go save the colonists.
     [+2R] We're wasting time here.
    
     The previous area is now blocked off, and the only way forward is through
     what used to be the colony's main residential area. The houses have large
     porches and walk-ups, making good cover from the collectors scouring the
     place. This neighborhood doesn't have much of interest, but the next one
     has plenty to loot, including a Particle Beam heavy weapon laying against a
     coffin-like object. [One of the multistory houses has some hackable credits,
     too.] This 2nd neighborhood's battle is where Harbinger, the Collectors'
     general, is introduced. He will "hack" normal collectors and "assume direct
     control," being able to fight on the battlefield through them. He's tougher
     than normal grunts, but one can cut down on how many times he appears by
     killing the cohorts first. Lesson: Harbinger can't reappear if his squad's
     toast. A garage nearby has to be hacked to continue; a mechanic's met there.
    
     [+2R] Calm down!
     [+2P] Who are you?
     [+2P] Wait here.
     [+2R] You're a coward!
    
     The mechanic mentions defense towers situated at the spaceport, so there's
     the next destination -- loot the garage before going, of course, 'cause the
     team won't be able to come back in. [NOTE: Don't be so hasty in switching out
     the collector particle beam; it's great against the scions coming up.]
    
     In the next plaza, more collectors! As said, the particle beam is particularly
     good against the husk scions, giant organic beings with a lot more armoring
     than usual. Incinerate and Incendiary Ammo can all help, just as sniper
     rifles can. Either way, take cover when they're around because they like to
     use Shockwave. [One tactic is to move in close range to lure them into using
     shockwave, rather than their gun-like move, then moving out of range to avoid
     the shot. By continuously baiting them like this, they may be more managable.]
     Either way, when everyone's roasted, search the surrounding residences for
     goodies, including a collector corpse carrying a biotic upgrade, and bypass
     the far door's security to reach the spaceport.
    
     This is the final area of this map, filled with boxes and other collector-
     -brought junk. To kickstart the events, dual scions with accompanying husks!
     Take out the minions first, since they tend to swamp Shepard when s/he's
     focusing on the stronger baddies (and be prepared to use Unity, since someone
     always seems to die 'round here). The best place to fight off scions is the
     peripheral walkways, which gives good cover and plays off the foes' slowness.
    
     NOTE: When opening the door into the final area, it's possible to kill the
           scions (who are obscured behind the central platform) from afar without
           repercussion. Sniping is the best way to take them out, with damage-
           -boosting abilities (like Adrenaline Rush) and Incendiary Ammo turned
           on. No weakpoints are visible, but on the flipside, it's possible to
           loot the previous residential area for ammo, if needed. [Killing the
           scions before the husks are summoned means they _won't_ be summoned!]
    
     When able, hack the central computer to reestablish contact with the Normandy.
     This starts the remaining waves, fighting off collector drones, a few husks,
     and Harbinger until the towers are back online. [There are 3 waves of normal
     guys. Be sure to collect ammo refills in the downtime, especially if you're
     using the Vindicator; starting the next part with low ammo kinda sucks...]
    
     The FINAL FINAL fight on this level is against a collector Praetorian, a
     hovering scarab-looking organic that fires a particle beam as its primary
     weapon, while alternating between an area shockwave attack (when it quits
     levitating). Use all the normal organic-oriented tricks to increase damage,
     and most importantly, stay away! Keep distance at all times, use unbreakable
     cover, and probably more frequently, since it's quite good at flanking. It's
     only got two layers of health (barrier/armor) but the barrier regenerates, so
     this battle probably takes longer than 99% of the game's finest. Using the
     Particle Beam can halve the time it takes to do this, though.
    
     Afterwards, Shepard is reunited with Kaiden Alenko or Ashley Williams from
     the first game, depending on their gender (or import data, which overrides
     the defaults). There's no para/gade decisions to make here; or, if there are,
     they're not shown in the updates aboard the Normandy.

     Illusive Man has given Shepard three more dossiers, so it's back to character
     recruitment! However, the crew suspects they may not make it out of the
     upcoming suicide mission, so they're trying to tie up loose ends -- Jacob and
     Miranda's loyalty sidequests should unlock when talked to.

     [+2P] And yet you became strong.     | "
     [+2R] Ignore it. I need a warrior.   | "
    
     NOTE: If MaleShep is paying particular attention to Jack, she may ask if he's
     looking for casual sex. Choosing to do the deed screws up the romance in the
     long run (she ends up hating him for using her), while courteously declining
     helps in the long run. Neither option screws up her loyalty, but if a player
     wants the Paramour achievement, put the sex off 'til later.
    
     With more dossiers on-hand, Shepard can put his/her nose to the grindstone
     and get back to team-building. Two characters (The Justicar, The Assassin)
     are recruited on Ilium in the Crescent Nebula, while Tali can be invited from
     her spot in the Far Rim. Let's get her's out of the way first before doing a
     big section, huh? It's also good because the Tempest SMG is obtained, an
     upgrade for those crappy machine pistols. [This mission's on Disc 2.]

     Kal'Reegar's mission was to exfiltrate Tali from this warzone, but now it's
     looking like Shepard will have to use a magic touch. Her bunker's entrance
     was blocked by rubble (argh!) and finding the two demo charges are necessary
     to clear a path. The nearest charge is in a garage opposite Tali's bunker,
     and once a way is cleared inside, more arrive to pin the team down. This
     includes a rare sighting of a Geth Prime, a large 3-healthbar fiend more
     than twice the size of normal geth. [But, like all synthetics, they can be
     brought down quicker with Overload, Warp, Disruptor Ammo, etc.] The 2nd demo
     charge is in a 2nd ground-level garage, past the sun-burned pedestrian bridge.
     The battles are mostly the same, except the Prime is replaced with multiple
     Destroyers, who specialize in rocketry. On the way out, there'll be more too,
     of course, but they're easier to take out since radiation eats their shields.
    
     Got both charges? Good. Plant 'em on the slab to gain access to Tali's bunker
     (funny thing: standing at point-blank range doesn't kill Shepard). Lamely,
     she's not exactly in this bunker...but the one further down the way. Dry yer
     tears with the ancient loot, such as an assault rifle damage upgrade, before
     radioing Tali.
    
     [+2P] No one else is left.
     [+2P] I came to help.
     [+2R] I'm recruiting you.
    
     Tali opens the route to the observatory, similarly sized to previous ranges
     and filled with normal geth accompanied by attack drones (weak but annoying
     to kill) and two Geth Prime. The route forward is spangled with sunlight, so
     it's mostly leapfrogging from cover to cover, pulling back if the enemy
     encroaches too fast. There doesn't seem to be a huge abundance of ammo here,
     so for those eating through assault rifle munitions, try taking drones with
     pistols (etc.) instead. [Geth Prime won't attack if Shepard's too far away,
     setting up good snipe opportunities.] Past there, lifting the security
     lockdown tips off the geth outside Tali's observatory. The lower path leads
     to Kal'Reegar.
    
     [+02P] Is she safe?
     [+02P] No. Stay down.
     [+15R] Sounds like a plan.
     [+15P] [Talk Reegar down from his stubborn position.]
    
     Picking the paragon prompt seems to keep Kal'Reegar alive 100% of the time,
     or at least with ample time to pick off the opposition. Taking the renegade
     route can make him die, although working fast will prevent that. The main
     goal here is to take down the Geth Colossus, which has a repair protocol that
     can regenerate health. Basically, Shepard must take it down before then (when
     it compacts itself). To do this, it's suggested to avoid the middle area and
     use the fringe sniper route, which flanks the geth platoon and leads to a
     drop-down point to pick away at the ol' Colossus. [The sniper route is
     radiation-blasted, so stay back and let the geth come to you first.] When the
     shields drop, it's recommended to use a heavy weapon to take it down -- some
     power cells are nearby for this very reason. The Particle Beam works quite
     well due to its accuracy and constant rate of fire.
    
     NOTE: The central route can also be taken to the colossus, and it has more
           cover and shade, but the brunt of all foes. Going in Rambo style can
           work, as there's power cells on either side of the colossus, but this
           way can be less safe, still. [NOTE: Squadmembers may come this way
           if they're not directed to the sniper walkway at the beginning, so if
           y'wanna avoid sloppy execution, don't forget that.]
    
     Loot the battlesite for its iridium and power cells, then locate Tali in the
     observatory. [No para/gade decisions to speak of here.]

     A derelict Collector ship...spooky. There aren't any enemies to fight around
     here, so take the available path until a pile of corpses can be inspected.
    
     [+2P] Maybe they're better off.
     [+2R] We can't help them now.
    
     Past there, a mandatory stop involves looking at a Collector specimen.
    
     [+2P] The Collectors are Protheans!
     [+2P] That's a horrible fate.
     [+2R] They'd be better off dead.
    
     Afterwards, Shepard finds a pile of weapons and can get weapon training with
     one of them, no matter what class s/he is. The weapons are: Revenant Machine
     Gun (assault rifle), Claymore (heavy shotgun), and M-98 Widow (sniper rifle). 
     Which should Shepard pick? Depends on one's style of play and what weapons're
     available already. [NOTE: A class can only pick the weapons above if they're
     already capable of using that weapon type. The rewards change to generic
     weapons training if a class can't use the weapon innately. For instance, an
     Infiltrator can pick the Widow since sniper rifles are already usable, but
     has to settle for basic assault rifle/shotgun training on the others.] My
     suggestions, from a purely tactical standpoint:
    
     • SOLDIER: Revenant. They're the only class that can use it, and with 500ish
       ammo, it's a great alternative to assault rifles (albeit less accurate than
       the Vindicator). The reason to pick this over the awesome Widow is because
       the rapidfire Viper sniper rifle is perfectly coupled with Adrenaline Rush's
       damage-boosting ability. [Also, Grunt can get the Claymore and another ally
       yet unfound can get the Widow, so it's possible to have them all in one
       active party.]
    
     • VANGUARD: Assault rifle training seems best, letting one cover all distances
       rather effectively, and that counts for this class. Picking sniper or a
       shotgun can work too, depending on the user's style of play.
    
     • INFILTRATOR: Widow, probably. Paired with Assassin Cloak...wow. This'll
       help take down some of the more annoying enemies, like scions, faster than
       normal. Of course, this matters more on higher difficulties -- picking the
       assault rifle, for instance, can be a good substitute for those ridiculous
       SMGs/pistols.
    
     • SENTINEL: Claymore or Widow, generally, whichever complements Tech Armor's
       ability (for extra shields, Widow; for cherrypicking knocked-down enemies,
       Claymore). 
    
     • ADEPT: Revenant or Widow, depending on one's style of play and how it'll
       complement the biotics. The Claymore's not that useful in this vein.
    
     • ENGINEER: This class gets the Tempest SMG which is sufficient in that
       department, so the Widow may make more sense (not to mention be a godsend
       on higher difficulties, or with ammo-related bonus abilities). If one can
       get the Locust SMG from Kasumi's DLC, then the Widow is definitely the way
       to go.
    
     A weapons locker nearby can change out the new weapon if y'don't want it
     yet, for some reason. Follow the path past more salvagable technology, and
     a computer with a damage protection upgrade. Cresting the hill leads to the
     "outer" part of the ship, ending at a radio platform.
    
     [+2P] We're okay.
     [+2R] Status report -- now!
    
     The obvious trap is revealed! The radio platform sends the team floating into
     the air, and now they must fight off Collectors docking on similar platforms.
     Like before, these guys are organics and Harbinger -- who takes over the
     lesser grunts -- appears as well. There's also some scions to defeat, if it
     wasn't annoying enough. Since the platforms occasionally relocated, this means
     Shepard's team should do the same, putting them on the edge of where the
     foes are and preventing back/flank/pincer attacks. There's a box of power
     cells in this area, too, towards the end. Operate the console when everyone's
     done.
    
     [+2P] Good work.
     [+2R] About time.
     [+2P] Don't jump to conclusions.
     [+2R] He betrayed us!
    
     There are five remaining battles on the way out. The first two are normal
     collector fights, a mix of drones and particle beam users. The 3rd is versus
     a praetorian, one of those annoying buglike things last seen on Horizon. The
     area is quite spartan for cover, so look for the rock masses and use the
     entrance ramps when fighting it off. The 4th fight is drones, heavies, and
     a scion, plus a new addition -- abominations. These are basically exploding
     husks, so destroy 'em before they get close. Final (5th) battle is with a
     _bunch_ of husks, which are easy to defeat and good for getting the Brawler
     achievement. All of these are made easier depending on which weapon was taken
     during the start of this mission, particularly the Widow sniper rifle (which
     can absolutely murder Harbinger appearances, as well as practically two-shot
     a Scion with damage-boosted headshots).

     Shepard has no idea where the justicar is, so it's time to hit the streets...
    
    PART 1: Info-gathering
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     The first step in tracking down the asari justicar is locating her. As it
     would happen, ex-shipmate Liara T'Soni has an office in the area, and her
     information brokerage can help. Inquiring about Samara is the way to go --
     one learns Tracking Officer Dara has more info. Naturally, she's at the
     Tracking Office (SW part of map)!
    
     [+2P] I only want to talk.
     [+2R] So what if she did?
    
     Shepard can then hail a cab that leads to the spaceport, Samara's last known
     sighting.
    
    PART 2: Commercial Spaceport
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Locate Detective Anaya in the nearby office, and talk her into letting the
     team through the cordoned-off crime scene around the corner (no para/gade
     options here). There's 3000c to find in an alleyway circuitboard, plus one
     skirmish with Eclipse mercs (biotic-user/mech mix). Samara is found through
     the next door.
    
     [+2P] You killed in cold blood.
     [+2P] Yes, I am.
     [+2R] Not really.
     [+2P] Maybe I can help.
    
     Samara agrees to join if Shepard learns the ship name of her prey, who has
     escaped from Nos Astra already. She will wait at the station (i.e. not yet
     invitable) while the commander gets to the bottom of things. Pitne For, the
     volus merchant in the spaceport, supposedly knows something about this end
     and must be questioned!
    
     [+5R] [Draw a gun on the merchant]
    
     Pitne hands over a pass card for the Eclipse base's elevator, which is right
     alongside the police station (how serendipitous).

     The final step of this mission requires ascending the Eclipse base to find
     our smuggler. It'd be standard fare if there weren't so many asari biotics
     (vanguards) running around, and they can make things a little more annoying
     than usual. The other new surprise are "toxic containers," explosive boxes
     that leave corrosive poison clouds around for awhile -- they're good for
     inflicting additional hurt on the foes, but don't get caught in 'em either.
    
     Past the first set of fights, pick up the Scimitar shotgun (switch it out if
     y'have the DLC-only Eviscerator) and check the anteroom nearby to find a
     cowardly merc.
    
     [+5P] [Shoot Elnora]
     [+5P] Go.
    
     Upstairs, fight through a few more merc battles until arriving at a large
     gunship hangar. The titular vehicle flees when attacked, so get it out of
     the way before cleansing the chamber of biotic threats. The adjacent room
     has more power cells and a confession from Elnora saying she killed Pitne
     For's business partner -- this can help exonerate him. The corridor nearby
     leads to a large open space which, naturally, means a large battle...this time
     with the returning gunship. The cover in this area mostly consists of crates,
     so use the higher ledges near the vehicle to attack (that's what all the
     power cells're for!). Being mechanical, attacks like Overload and Disruptor
     Ammo work well, although combos (like Adrenaline Rush + sniper rifle shots)
     easily deep-six it, too.
    
     Next-door, another hackable terminal and the sidequest-related Shipping
     Manifest, which can pin down Pitne For's smuggling operation. It's really so
     careless to leave those lying around, huh? Speaking of Volus, there's one
     around the corner as high as a space-kite! (He also gets some of the game's
     best lines).
    
     [+2P] Calm down.
     [+2R] You're high.
     [+5R] We're right behind you.
     [+5P] [Tip Niftu Cal over]
    
     Putting Niftu Cal to sleep saves his life, and later he'll send a thank-you
     email; sending the "biotic god" to his drug-addled doom is for meanies only!
     Check the medical/weapon station down the hall before entering Wasea's room,
     where the final firefight foments fatalities! Wasea can Throw toxic canisters
     so it pays to detonate them as a preempt. Besides that, pretty much business
     as usual! Just watch out for flankers. [If you're wondering about that area
     behind her desk that starts closed off, Wasea only goes there when the battle
     is prolonged. Destroying the toxic canisters usually starts the crate-moving
     event, but there's nothing back there, so...]
    
     When everyone's a perforated, rotting corpse (^___^) check Wasea's desk for a
     datapad detailing the sought-after ship name. A teammate suggests going back
     to the spaceport immediately, although looking around is possible, too. [If
     that's the case, the chamber's entrance is the auto-exit.]
    
    PART 4: Spaceport [II]
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Samara is still waiting at the detective's place.
    
     [+2P] I am honored.
     [+2P] Welcome to the team.
     [+2R] You'll do anything I say?
     [+5R] [Samara is recruited] 
     [+5P] [Samara is recruited]
    
     Shepard can turn in Elnora's evidence (if obtained) to clear Pitne For of all
     murder charges, although s/he can turn around and give Anyala the shipping
     manifest to have him arrested -- the reward's +5P & 4200c. On the flipside,
     giving Pitne the manifest so he can avoid going to the clink earns +5R and
     9000c. Both Anyala and Samara have speech options for returning to the ship,
     so that's the quick way out.

    PART 5: Normandy SR-2
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [+2R] We need her.
    
     Samara uses the ship's observation deck as a meditation spot, located on the
     3rd-lowest deck (the crew one). Talking to her down there gives no para/gade
     options (note to self: this is the convo where she won't talk about the perp
     she was chasing, when asked).

     Like in the justicar's mission, talking to Liara T'Soni about Thane tips the
     team off to his Seryna, someone who may know his whereabouts. She's located
     in the shipping cargo area (#5 on map above).
    
     [+2R] Show some respect.
     [+2P] Where is he?
     [+2R] Then talk fast.
    
     Thane's location is revealed to be Dantius Towers, and Seryna can get everyone
     in (like usual, going there means no leaving until event's over). The locale
     is made up of two towers, one completed and another still in construction --
     that's the in.
    
    DANTIUS TOWERS (TOWER 1)
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Since the floors are roughly the same, I'll just divide 'em up.
    
     1F: A few mechs start the show off, but they're nothing new. The med station
     nearby has a hackable terminal [4800c] but the other direction's the real
     path. There's a salarian worker there.
    
      [+2P] I'm sorry.
      [+2R] You're lucky.
      [+5P] [Heal worker before he dies]
      [+5P] Hang on.
      [+2R] We're done here.
    
     The rest of the floor is under renovation, so there's odd stacks, fragile
     crates, and the like lying around. The opposition is still a mech/dog mix,
     although towards the end, some humans (vanguards) enter the scene. Then, the
     door leads up to...
    
     2F: This area's prefaced by some mercs talking about infiltration -- oh, how
     wrong they are! The dogs have been ditched for a merc/mech mix, and the floor
     has plenty of side corridors for flanking purposes. At the curved part of the
     walkway, where a giant pit's in the middle, follow the bend to a side room
     (bypassable) with a few salarian workers inside.
    
      [+2P] Yes.
      [+2R] No.
    
     Also, at the dead end around there, the 5-97b Viper [sniper rifle] can be
     found. This is a rapid-fire weapon and has more capacity than a normal one,
     but does less damage per hit and may be inaccurate if fired consecutively. In
     short, it may be better to switch to the Mantis again when the chance is
     given. However, the Viper does go very well with soldiers' damage-boosting
     Adrenaline Rush ability. [Power cells, 4200c terminal nearby, too]
    
     Trying to access the elevator summons three enemies, a krogan bounty hunter
     and two biotic engineers, so take cover (as advised). Upstairs...
    
     3F: [I'm calling this 3F because I dunno which one it is.] The floor starts
     with a talkative merc (memorably) getting blindsided by Shepard's gang. 
    
      [+2R] I need answers.
      [+2P] I've got an offer.
      [+2R] Listen carefully.
      [+5R] [Push merc out of window!]
      [+5P] Don't be stupid.
      [+5R] I hope you can fly.
    
     After the "flying lesson," pick up the datapad to start the "Salarian Family
     Data" sidequest, which is a simple info delivery for later. Either way, the
     ensuing chamber has the merc leader's team, and they fight no matter the
     outcome. [Power cells in area.] There's a bypassable door that leads to a 2nd
     locked-in salarian, and a PDA with 6000c in it.
    
      [+5R] [Punch salarian.]
      [+5P] Let me help you.
      [+5R] Put down the gun.
      [+2P] I don't think so.
      [+2R] Not that one.
    
     4F: Up the ramp, Nassana's sent out some of her biotic vanguards. This area's
     noticably more spartan than the lower ones, so take care when moving from
     cover to cover. [500 Element Zero, med kit, weapons locker in area]. Around
     the corner, another skirmish! This time an asari commando joins the fray, and
     has 3 healthbars to deplete. She also has pink blood...eww.
    
     Near the bridge drop-down point, pick up the med kit and submachine gun damage
     upgrade from the corpse. [Body also has 12000c PDA...miser!] Make sure to get
     everything here because lowering into the trench prevents backtacking!
    
    DANTIUS TOWERS (TOWER 2)
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     The bridge to the 2nd tower is the first step to conquer, and is mostly
     populated by those assault rifle mechs -- cook up some disruptor ammo to take
     'em down quickly. Once on the windswept part, another fight starts, same as
     before. From here, two rocket drones are setup and start sniping as Shepard's
     crew advances; either snipe 'em or get in closer for other weapon options.
     The Viper actually sucks on this end, no matter what the description says, so
     if y'have to use it, Adrenaline Rush first (if applicable). In fact, since
     the enemies have high cover towards the end, Adrenaline Rush + Viper sniping
     is a good idea all-around. Save before going in past the commando's door.
    
     [Convos have no para/gadeness.]

     Thane settles into the life support (*giggle*) chamber, and can be talked to

     the Normandy.]

     The IFF can be collected from a Reaper ship in Hawking Eta's Thorne system
     (by way of Chandrasekhar system).
    
     NOTE: This marks a turning point in the storyline, so to increase everyone's
     survivability for the final stretch, recruit all allies and do their loyalty
     missions, plus any sidequests (etc.) that should be gotten out of the way.
     The reason for doing this? After acquiring the IFF, there's precious little
     time to do extra things -- that is, without incurring severe loss Normandy-
     -wise. [This'll be expounded on at end of this section.]

     There's some safes and worklogs to browse, but the real fun starts when the
     far pressurized door is opened: kinetic barriers trap everyone inside, and
     the mission changes to deactivating the core causing said nuisance. After the
     convo with Joker, the ensuing walkway will have explosive crates and husks
     (plus a few Abominations), so have Incinerate or (Squad) Incendiary Ammo up
     and at 'em -- Inferno Grenade works well, too. Since they climb up from
     opposite sides of the walkway, it's best to pull back a bit to keep them all
     in focus.
    
     Past the spot the where sniper rifle damage upgrade is, husks appear with
     their daddy (a.k.a. scion) in two separate battles, so do the previous strat
     to avoid being flanked. The waves are thicker as well, so this is one instance
     where exploding the environmental crates can help more than usual. Don't try
     to open the exit corridor in-between the two fights, unless you like husks
     flaying you alive with their karate chops...
    
     In the next area, after the geth sniper disappears, the exercise in husk
     extermination appears again (2 battles). This time, the height differential
     can be problematic as the swarms appear in close quarters, so use bottlenecks
     (ramps, stairs) to slay 'em easier -- Inferno Grenade just mops 'em up here!
     Only one scion, luckily, but its Shockwave attack may get better range if it
     shoots from higher up, so take cover! This same situation repeats roughly
     six more times, with the final scrapes having two scions to eliminate! The
     "retreat and burn" strategy never quits applying, however. If this gives a
     player trouble, particularly on higher difficulties where enemies have more
     armor, remember to save in-between skirmishes! [Incendiary Ammo + Adrenaline
     Rush + Viper sniper rifle = hilarious win also]
    
     When the main fighting's over, a bypassable door leads to the reaper IFF and
     a wall safe. Past there, the geth sniper seen previously is doing computer
     work while husk types stream into the core's room. This sets the stage for
     the final events: destroying the core amidst a sea of husks. The core has an
     outer plating that prevents any damage, and only opens after approximately
     0:30 has elapsed (in other words, worst operating system ever!). Incendiary
     effects work best, like usual, but the melee-n'-shotgun tactic pays off well,
     too. KEEP MOVING AND SHOOTING -- standing still lets the husks gang up on
     Shepard, continuously knocking him/her off-balance to maximize chances of
     melee killing!

     Back onboard, the two Cerberus employees are split on how best to deal with
     the captured geth.

     [+20R, +5P] Cerberus gets the geth.
          [+02P] Just be careful.
    
     The final (non-DLC) teammate to obtain is that geth sniper, locked up in the

     The next step is going through the Omega-4 Relay to visit the Collectors'
     homeworld. To avoid any more casualties, make sure all important ship upgrades
     -- like weapon upgrades, shielding types, etc. -- are purchased. Stuff like
     a Modular Probe Bay (etc.) aren't crucial. When ready, head to the relay in
     the Omega Nebula...
    
     -- INSERT DISC 1 --
    
     If Shepard's been cultivating a romance with an applicable teammate, and they
     considered consummating it, then that love scene plays out after the disc
     switch. [No para/gade seemingly.]

    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [+2P] The team is strong.
     [+2R] I don't need to know.
    
    GOING THROUGH THE OMEGA-4 RELAY (TARTARUS DEBRIS FIELD)
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Remember how it was said to get the important ship upgrades, like the Thanix
     cannon, armor plating and extra shielding (Garrus, Jacob, and Tali's upgrades
     respectfully)? Well, for each that ISN'T installed, a teammate will die just
     en route to the Collector Base!
    
     Either way, the Normandy will be attacked by an "Oculus," a flying eyeball-
     -like robot Shepard and two teammates have to fight off (in a real fight).
     The battle takes place on the engineering deck and loyalty has nothing to do
     with things, so take your faves! The boss is fought twice: the 1st time it
     flees after incurring 'x' amount of damage, the 2nd time it's for real. Its
     only attack is a red laserbeam from its eye, so any combination of synthetic-
     -killing attacks works well. [The Viper sniper rifle + Adrenaline Rush +
     Disruptor Ammo strategy is fine.]
    
    COLLECTOR BASE, PART I
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Before setting out, there are two matters to discuss.
    
     • PICKING A TECH EXPERT: This person will go through the ventilation shafts to
       unlock the far door, letting both fire teams escape safely. There are only
       three good choices here (Tali, Legion, Kasumi). Pick whoever's loyal for the
       task. Choosing anyone else, or a tech expert who's disloyal, will end up
       getting themselves killed.
    
     • PICKING A FIRETEAM LEADER: This person will lead the 2nd diversion team
       (i.e. whoever's not on Shepard's squad) during the infiltration expedition.
       There are three good choices here -- Miranda, Jacob, and Garrus -- so pick
       whoever's loyal to do the job. Choosing a poor leader makes the selected
       tech expert die at the end of this portion!
    
     Shepard's team will encounter ~7 battles with collectors, which also serve
     as appearances for Harbinger. Remember the strategy? Kill off weaker enemies
     to prevent them from being hijacked by Harb. All the while, Shepard's team'll
     have to be on the lookout heat exchanger valves. Activating these takes the
     pressure off the vents' tech expert -- LETTING IT GET TOO HOT KILLS THAT ALLY
     so there's not a lot of time to sit behind cover. Gotta go on the offensive
     for all this, so use (Squad) Incendiary Ammo! There are 8 valves to trigger.
    
     The segment ends when all teams regroup at the far door, hopefully escaping
     with all lives intact.
    
    COLLECTOR BASE, PART II
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [+02P] I'd never abandon my crew.
     [+02R] I didn't come for you.
     [+02P] I wish I could have.
     [+02R] That wasn't an option.
     [+15P] I'll have someone escort you.
     [+15R] The mission comes first.
    
     When the captured crewmembers are located, the way forward is complicated.
     There are now three jobs for the next segment.
    
     • PICKING A BIOTIC SPECIALIST: Despite what Miranda says, there are only two
       choices who can get through the field of bugs without faltering: Samara (or
       Morinth) and Jack. Choosing any neophyte biotic to do the job results in a
       teammate getting swarm'd! [Whoever's chosen won't participate in the fight
       this segment has, though; they only do the barrier.]
    
     • PICKING A FIRETEAM LEADER: The same ones as before -- Garrus, Miranda, and
       Jacob -- are still applicable. Whoever's loyal should be selected for this
       job. Miranda seems to be the best choice since she's scripted to survive
       regardless of loyalty.
    
     • PICKING AN ESCORT: This person will escort the remaining crewmembers back
       to the Normandy, although s/he won't be selectable for the rest of the
       segments (i.e. can't fight final boss). However, whoever is put in this
       position automatically survives the ordeal, so the best choice is Mordin --
       his scrawny butt can screw up other positions if he's delegated 'em, and
       he can be a liability in the next section. [Any loyal crewman can do this
       position, but the others are more helpful here. Picking no one ensures the
       Normandy crew's turned into mincemeat!]
    
     The biotic specialist protects Shepard's squad from the Collector swarms, but
     that doesn't mean there's no fighting -- the team will still have to rebuff
     teams of drones that appear, and all from within the confines of the barrier.
     Difficult? Not technically. Relying on biotics and techs here is a great idea,
     since one has to scavenge for the occasional ammo drop. There are three (3)
     main fights in all, with the final one having a scion & abominations to kill.
     A few isolated teams of husks/abominations will appear, too, but are much
     easier to eliminate -- remember that Throw instantly kills both types.
    
    COLLECTOR BASE, PT. III FINAL
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     For the final boss, Shepard's team will advance forward while the others'll
     "hold the line," to borrow an ME1 phrase.
    
     • PICKING FINAL TEAM: Since enemies ahead will be both organic and synthetic,
       it's wise to choose a loyal, well-rounded, offense-oriented team to assist.
       If a disloyal person is taken along, they die after the next boss without
       exception.
    
     • PICKING DEFENSIVE TEAM: The remaining allies will stave off the foes while
       Shepard turns this station on its head. Certain allies -- Garrus, Zaeed,
       and Grunt -- are great for defensive purposes, and leaving them behind'll
       improve everyone's chances of surviving. Leaving behind loyal members also
       gives a bonus, too.
    
     [+2P] The galaxy is depending on us.
     [+2R] Feel sorry for the Collectors.
    
     Prefacing the final boss fight, Shepard's team must deal with Collectors on
     moving platforms, a near replica of the scenario on the Derelict Reaper. Take
     cover according to current enemy placement and scour the area for ammo when
     a little downtime's given. Whatever ammo amount the team ends this segment
     with is what's brought to the final boss, so being biotic/tech-reliant ain't
     such a bad idea. The enemy mix here is drones/guardians/assassins/Harbinger;
     the 5th has two scions.
    
     [+2P] We can't let it survive.
     [+2R] Let's take it down.
    
     FINAL BOSS: Human Reaper
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     EDI says the way to defeat this sucker: shoot its "feeding tubes," which'll
     destabilize it and make it fall into the abyss. The first half of this fight
     is simply shooting those tubes (you'll know to fire when the syringe shutters
     fall back to show the orangey liquid). The reaper just sits there during this
     segment, letting Harbinger and his assassin/drone cronies do the legwork. As
     there's precious little ammo to pickup here, try to defeat these wastes of
     time with techs; or, at very least, use Incendiary Ammo to conserve a few
     for later. ALSO, it helps to direct allies to cover or y'may be turning to
     Unity a lot.
    
     When all supports are through, Illusive Man time.
    
     [+02P] I didn't do it alone.
     [+02R] I'm just getting started.
     [+02P] This place is an abomination.
     [+02R] You think it can help?
     [+02P] This doesn't feel right.
     [+02R] Are you sure?
     [+15P] No. We don't need it.
     [+15R] OK, let's take it and use it.
    
      But it ain't over yet! As the timebomb or EMP pulse is readied (10:00 time
      limit), the human-reaper larva crawls out of the abyss for round two! Killing
      this enemy is as simple as shooting it in its eyes/chest hole when it charges
      its beam attack. It changes positioning every so often, so be prepared to
      switch cover accordingly. Running low on ammo here means each bullet weighs
      a ton and none should be wasted -- use careful sniping and the slow-mo effect
      of Adrenaline Rush to get this fight over with. [Some collector drones who
      enter battle may drop ammo, the one saving grace on this end.] Direct allies
      to cover, lest they don't do it themselves and get ganked by concentrated
      fire from Harbinger, the boss, etc.
    
     When the fight's over, Shepard's team makes a mad dash (cutscene) back to the
     Normandy. Joker, despite having "broken all his ribs" even gives suppressing
     fire!
    
    NORMANDY SR-2

     Back onboard, the Illusive Man will talk about the choices Shepard made, in
     destroying the base or salvaging it. [No para/gadeness, seemingly.] If the
     "No One Left Behind" achievement prereqs were fulfilled, that's gotten after
     the convo ends.

     Post-game allows for Shepard to do remaining loyalty missions, mining for
     resources, and assorted sidequests. However, teammates who died in the suicide
     mission remain dead, closing off applicable missions they were the focus of.

     Garrus' mission takes him to a familiar setting, the Citadel -- this is open
     from the game's beginning, remember. The layout has changed since ME1's days,
     and is a lot simpler to explore (click L-analog to see map). Assuming the
     player hasn't been to Citadel yet, go through C-Sec's scanners and meet with
     Captain Bailey on the other side, clearing up the "death" issue. At this
     point, the preamble ends and Shepard can snoop around for Garrus' contact, 
     Fade. [No para/gade options for any of these convos.]
    
     Bailey sets the team on Fade's trail by saying some of his contacts work out
     of a warehouse, located on the west/left side of the map (downstairs from

     The final warehouse chamber has alternating stacks of crates, and the team

     not important, shooting the overhead crates causes them to fall and fragment,
     damaging anyone who may be underneath. The final surprise is two YMIR mechs,

     Back onboard, Garrus has a conversation depending on how his vendetta went.
     If the player's a female Shepard, she can suggest some "sparring" in his
     "quarters"... [This is done by prying about how Turian ships prepare; doing
     this gives no paragon/renegade options.]

     Grunt's loyalty dialogue suggests visiting the krogan homeworld of Tuchanka,
     in the Krogan DMZ's (demilitarized zone) Aralakh system.
    
     After arriving, a lackey tells Shepard that the clan leader wishes to speak.
     In the main hall of the camp, look for a group of Krogan on a large pile of
     rubble in the well-lit part of the room. The leader is Wreav or Wrex -- the
     former is the default leader since Wrex dies by default in a non-ME1 import
     save; an import where Wrex specifically lives makes him the leader.
    
     [No para/gadeness for Wrex/Wreav dialogue.]
    
     Either way, Shepard has to ask about Grunt's problem to continue his loyalty
     quest. It's learned that 
    
     [+2R] Does it change anything?
     [+2P] His call.
    
     Next step is speaking with the Shaman, straight across from the chief's dais,
     up the stairway. 
    
     [+2P] We have permission.
     [+2R] He dares stand in Grunt's way?
     [+2R] I want this crap over with.
     [+2P] He is part of my crew.
     [+2R] We will kill for Grunt.
     [+5R] [Headbutt Uvenk]
     [+2P] You defy a shaman?
     [+2R] Do you want to die, Uvenk?
     [+2R] Let's get this crap going!
    
     The shaman can start the ritual when asked.
    
    GRUNT'S RITE OF PASSAGE
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     NOTE: There's a few known glitches here: (1) activating the keystone may make
     the sound cut out. This doesn't affect much, and saving/reloading seems to
     rectify the problem (2) saving/reloading in the rite of passage's battlesite,
     before the keystone's red button turns to green after a few seconds, may make
     it unable to be chosen. Redoing the mission solves this. (3) feeding the
     domesticated varren at Camp Urdnot may screw up this part (4) sometimes during
     the bug-fighting part, after all have been killed, allies fire at an
     "invisible" bug and one can't progress any further.
    
     True to Krogan simplicity, there is no dungeon to wander through -- only pure
     bloodshed on sacred ground! Examining the keystone near the platform sends a
     wave of enemies into the place, to which Grunt and his "krantt" must defeat.
     Before starting, however, feel free to loot the battlesite for credits. [Y'may
     want to hold off on collecting the power cells if you're at max capacity.] It
     doesn't hurt to familiarize oneself with the area's ammo pickups, which
     respawn in the same spots after awhile.
    
     • 3600c (turbine)         • 1500c (corpse)        • 1500c (corpse)
     • 3300c (turbine)         • 1800c (corpse)        • 2000 Palladium
     • 1200c (corpse)
    
     Anyway, flip the keystone to let the fun really start... [It's possible to
     save in-between bouts.]
    
     WAVE 1: Varren. These fleshy organic dogs are well-known Krogan partners, and
             they attack low to the ground in packs. (Squad) Incendiary Ammo is the
             best supplement here, although these suckers are easy target practice
             more than they are man's best friend.
    
     WAVE 2: Klixen. These insectoid (rachni-like) bugs are similar to varren in
             their attack range, although they have an incendiary breath attack
             that gives 'em a slightly better edge. Additionally, they explode upon
             death, so mid- to long-range killing is ideal. If (Squad) Cryo Ammo
             is learned, kickstart it. [And no, you can't kill the giant flying
             bug that deposits klixen in the area.]
    
     WAVE 3: Thresher Maw. This giant, burrowing worm should be familiar to any
             ME1 player, as they appeared on many unexplored planets. Here, the
             goal is merely to survive 5:00 against it -- a simple task, since it
             remains on the battlefield periphery spitting acid bombs, which can
             be blocked by sticking obstacles in-between. However, it's possible to
             defeat the sucker and doing so earns the Big Game Hunter achievement,
             and later, Clan Urdnot's respect. [Using heavy weapons and precision
             damage-boosted shooting are the easiest ways to neutralize the maw.
             Keep mobile! The area's towers can be destroyed by repeated strikes
             and end up providing scant cover.]
    
     Gatatog Uvenk shows up after this to see how things are...uh, going.
    
     [+02P] He's the ultimate krogan.
     [+02R] Are you here to fight?
     [+02P] Your call, Grunt.
     [+02R] He can't join your clan.
     [+15P] [Automatically awarded]
     [+15R] [Automatically awarded]
    
     WAVE 4: Clan Gatatog. No matter the speech outcomes, Uvenk's idiots attack the
             team. They've got the firepower to back up their speech, but are still
             organic types, so (Squad) Incendiary Ammo rips 'em apart. Just make
             sure to whittle 'em down from cover and watch out for flank tactics.
             Uvenk has three healthbars and is accompanied by a few rocketeers as
             well, in addition to normal warriors. A few have shotguns, so stay at
             mid- to long-range when eliminating the threat.
    
     Back at camp, Grunt is ordained a proper Urdnot clansman by the shaman, who
     also gives a Shotgun Damage upgrade as a present. [Dialogue has no para/gade
     points.]

     En route on the shuttle...
    
     [+2P] Settle down.
     [+2R] We're going in.
    
     Take shelter from the rain down the helipad walkway, revealing the deserted,
     overgrown interior of the facility. There's no enemies around, so rob the
     remaining consoles at leisure. In the larger room a ways in, a pack of varren
     (dog-like monsters) attack. There's also a blood stain that Jack'll talk
     about, if asked, and inspecting the 2nd security log gives a para/gade convo.
    
     [+2P] Maybe there was more to it.
     [+2R] Or not.
    
     Through the next hallway, which has a fresh varren kill, Blood Pack mercs're
     found in the morgue. Most attack at ground level, so the fight's simplistic,
     and even a bit ironic. Further down the way, past a small vorcha ambush, the
     holding cells are found -- make sure to check 'em all! The team draws steadily
     closer to Jack's room at the compound's end, going past a playground to a
     medical lab (get the biotic damage upgrade!). The security logs can be viewed
     for more para/gade scenes.
    
     [+2P] Don't blame yourself.
     [+2R] Makes sense.
     [+2P] You were distracted.
    
     Finally, the team finds a Blood Pack platoon waiting for 'em nearby.
    
     [+2P] Why are you here?
     [+2R] Get ready to fight.
    
     This ends up being a rather standard fight, the only exception being Kureck,
     the 3-healthbar krogan, and a few heavy units who fire rockets. On higher
     difficulties the flanking krogan may be a problem, but it's quite managable
     on lower ones. Maneuver to Jack's cell to find Aresh...
    
     [+02P] He was drawn here, like you.
     [+15P] Killing him changes nothing.
     [+15R] Do it.
     [+05P] Leave him alone.
     [+05R] Kill him.
     [+10P] [Stop Jack from killing Aresh]
     [+10R] [Command Jack to kill Aresh]
     [+02P] Good work.
     [+02R] You're free.
    
     If Shepard gave Jack time to look around, there are places to observe while
     Subject Zero reminisces about her childhood. Either way, this mission
     culminates in a gigantic explosion, one for the ages. [And she gets a new
     costume, in case y'didn't like looking at her scanty nipple belt setup, haha.]

    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Additionally, if Jack's loyalty mission was done, there'll be an argument
     between the two ladies ("Take pictures!" Joker says, haha). The default
     options have Shepard siding with one of them, making the other lose loyalty,
     while the para/gade options salvage both of the crewmembers' loyalty.
    
     [+15P] This is a distraction.
     [+15R] This ends now!
    
     NOTE: Whoever gets shunned and loses loyalty over the argument can have their
     loyalty regained with para/gade options. They won't say anything else to
     Shepard 'til this is cleared up, though. Reconciliation can occur when one's
     para/gade points are at 'x' amount of the total amount currently available --
     basically, the earlier the hatchet's buried, the better.
    
     In normal circumstances, talking with Jack back onboard gives more dialogue.
    
     [+2R] Get over yourself.
     [+2P] Feel like you've changed?
     [+2R] I need you functional.
     [+2P] I wanted to help you.
     [+2P] It's a start.
     [+2R] Deal with it.

     this planet, attack Shepard's crew at the supply site. (They're all organics,
     natch). Down the road, a settlement is found, but...it's odd. No para/gade
     options to speak of, but there's a few things to loot. A few mechs attack at

     [+2R] Harsh, but defendable.

     [+2R] They're fighting back now.
    
     Once the nearby mech is programmed to explode, the way towards the leader's
     camp is opened. The next "village" is all mechs, so hit up Disruptor Ammo.
     Most come from the road leading to Taylor's compound, which is prefaced with
     power cells, medkits, and so on. Once inside, there's a bunch of organic
     targets (assault rifle users, mostly) and a YMIR mech to destroy. A lot of
     the cover is breakable or low to the ground, so staying near the entrance is
     a good idea, at least until y'can flank the robot. Following, the final stage
     is to confront Ronald. [No para/gade options.]

     Once Kasumi's DLC is obtained (560 MSP), Shepard should get an email saying
     to rendezvous with her at the Citadel's Zakera Ward. Upon disembarking, look
     at the odd advertisement terminal nearby to get in touch with the master
     thief.
    
     [+2R] Cut the crap.
     [+2P] Welcome aboard.
     [+2R] Let's head out.
    
     With that, Kasumi automatically goes to the Normandy (Port Observation Deck)
     and can be selected as a crewmember. Like Zaeed, her onboard interaction is
     limited to "inspecting" her person for quips or her valuables for stories.
     But hey, at least Shepard's long-awaited dream of a Normandy bar is realized.
    
     Inviting Kasumi opens up the Boltzmann cluster in the Serpent Nebula, where
     Kasumi's loyalty mission can be started (planet Bekenstein). Similarly to
     Zaeed, her mission can be done from the get-go -- no waiting around like the
     other allies'.

     After touchdown at Hock's mansion...
    
     [+2P] Of course.
     [+2R] If that's what it takes.
     [+2P] What's the plan?
     [+2R] I can do this alone.
    
     Then the real fun begins.
    
    STEP 1: CASE VAULT
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [AKA "Kasumi: Stealing Memory"]
    
     With Kasumi having to stealthily infiltrate the party, Shepard will have to
     pick up the brunt of the legwork. The vault is located opposite the entrance,
     down the stairs and through the only door. Kasumi gives an overview: the
     security has a voice lock, DNA analysis, and a kinetic barrier. Getting in
     will be a bit tricky, so it's time to break the security down piecemeal.
     [The following steps can be done in any order, mind you.]
    
    STEP 2: FIND DNA SAMPLES
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [AKA "Kasumi: DNA Scanner"]
    
     In order to get enough of a DNA sample, Shepard'll have to sneak into Hock's
     private quarters. The main door is guarded, but on the balcony, there's a
     drop-down point off to one side that provides a quick infiltration. There'll
     be three Eclipse troopers down below, probably quite easy to dispose of even
     with just pistols. [For a fun time, use Throw on the railing guard and watch
     him fly off the cliff.]
    
     Using the makeshift ramp, break the glass window and neutralize the two guards
     upstairs. This allows free access to the bedroom area, where Shepard can
     commence scanning everything to find a sample. Concentrate on the datapad,
     antique weapons collection, and wineglass. [The couch has +1c and wallsafe
     has +7800c, too.]
    
     Once back in the party, return to the vault and activate the DNA Scanner to
     remove that obstacle and finish the miniquest.
    
     ---
    
     [David Bernstein writes:] "I did this a different way. There is a PDA out on
     the balcony, reading it tells you about chief Roe. I took out the power cable
     and the security room next. After that I went to the door to Hock's room and
     talked to the guard, and dropped Roe's name and said I had permission. I was
     also female this playthru. Got in, no gun shots fired. Definitely more useful
     that going up against 5 gunmen on insanity difficulty."
    
    STEP 3: DISABLE KINETIC BARRIER
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [AKA: "Kasumi: Kinetic Barrier"]
    
     Outside of the vault, along one of the walls, a cable feeding power is
     visible -- examine it to see that the power source is nearby. Locate one of
     the sitting rooms nearby, one of which has a statuette leading to a false
     wall with the generator behind it. Kasumi takes care of it a moment later,
     finishing this section.
    
    STEP 4: VOICE LOCK
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [AKA: "Kasumi: Voice Lock"]
    
     To defeat the voice lock, one must have Hock's voice and knowledge of his
     password. Start by locating a security door (left of entrance), which Kasumi
     hacks, and defeating the guards in the station beyond. [Wallsafe has +7200c 
     here.] A carelessly-placed datapad says the password's "PERRUGIA," which takes
     care of that ordeal.
    
     Obtaining a voice sample can be done by finding Hock himself, standing near
     the twin interior stairways. The objective is to keep him talking long enough
     to get a voiceprint (not unlike a certain ME1 quest on Noveria). Charming the
     target is the best course of action. [A few answers require para/gade, but
     aren't mandatory to get through the section.]
    
     [+5P] Expecting trouble?
     [+5R] Understandable.
     [+5P] [Flirt] You're not offensive.
     [+5R] Don't walk away from me.
     [+5P] We should do business.
     [+5R] My enemy is your enemy.
     [+2P] You have great taste in wine.
     [+2R] Not much of a party.
    
     Answers on the left-hand side automatically fulfill the voiceprint conditions,
     although if Shepard makes Hock mad, Kasumi can still bootstrap the parsing --
     no harm done.
    
    STEP 5: ENTERING VAULT
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Triumphing over Hock's locks lets the duo enter the secure elevator beyond,
     in full battle gear, of course. There'll be a notification of "greybox
     proximity" here -- the lower the number, the closer to the item in question.
     It's quite easy to find, on a platform on the left side, right next to the
     DLC's other awesome item: the Locust SMG. Of course, once the graybox is
     taken, things go awry!
    
     [+5R] [Shoot a priceless artifact]
    
    STEP 6: ESCAPING VAULT
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     The vault's shape has a walkway around its rectangular interior, with a
     criss-crossing path in the middle; the artifact pedestals can provide cover.
     The Eclipse mercs who infiltrate are a normal trooper mix, with Chief Roe
     accompanying as well (2 healthbars). Watch out for enemies who throw grenades
     -- yes, a new tactic! -- as they inflict damage and force one from cover,
     temporarily stunning them.
    
     When the fuss is over, Kasumi determines the exit to be eastward. [Collect
     the medkits and switch weapons if need be, of course.] The adjacent garage
     has another scrape, this one with a few troopers and a YMIR mech. The best
     course of action is to _not_ advance forward, instead kayoing the frontline
     enemies from the starting position. There are more troopers behind the mech
     but they (trooper/vanguard mix) won't advance forward if Shepard doesn't.
     A Hackable PDA, 4200c, is near the exit.
    
     The next garage has a similar situation, except with some heavies and more
     grenadiers. [Items: Spare parts for 4800c & 1200c, 1000 Palladium] Fight
     through the scrubs and pick up on Kasumi's hints about the explosive tanks --
     operating a combat vehicle's turret blows a hole in the far wall. This leads
     to ANOTHER garage with more troopers babysitting a YMIR. Towards the end, a
     dead mech has a rare [Tech Damage Upgrade] to get.
    
     The final garage has 1000 Platinum total, 4800c credits total, and a lot more
     mercs, this time with a rich blend of vanguards and heavies thrown in with the
     troopers. At long last, everyone reaches the eastern landing pad...naturally
     there's a final showdown with Donovan!
    
     Hock arrives in a gunship protected by a kinetic barrier and some LOKI mechs.
     The best point of strike is right by the start, with the half-arc of crates
     that provides good cover. The gunship is typical, firing a machine-gun burst
     or missiles, and when its barrier is depleted, it regenerates it and flees.
     Defeat the rest of the lackeys and wait for it to reappear, which starts Round
     2 with the bugger. Kasumi will automatically remove the gunship's shielding
     when the foot soldiers are defeated, so concentrate on them first to speed up
     the process. Round 3 has the gunship fighting without shielding, which means
     it can be defeated like any other -- and, the team automatically returns to
     the starting point, which has the best defense! The ship retreats when it's
     at full health, reappearing when the cronies are defeated. After that, Hock's
     got no where to go...well, except straight down. [There are medkits and a
     power cells box around this area, if needed.]
    
     When the dust settles, the Normandy's shuttle arrives on the landing pad,
     effectively closing the mission. Shepard can then persuade Kasumi to keep the
     graybox for posterity, or destroy it in accordance with Keiji's wishes.

                                  wrecked hubs, too! The first time this is done...
    
     [+2P] The heretics are a part of you.
     [+2R] Why worry about brainwashing?
     [+2P] You'd lose that perspective.
     [+2R] Their judgement sucks.
     [+2P] That could be traumatizing.
     [+2R] You'll feel guilty.
    
     Hub rooms all operate the same way, although navigating the alarm system may
     be a bit harder as things go on, especially if teammates screw up the stealth.
     Corridors connecting these locations often have small geth squads to fight,
     and Legion can hack inactive turrets (found in hallway) to assist briefly
     before self-destructing. 
    
     Eventually, down the line, there'll be a corridor with a Geth Shield Strength
     upgrade, one of the few to find in this dungeon. The next battlesite is just
     another hub area, although considerably more dangerous -- it's harder to
     avoid alarming the foes, and if a hub's destroyed, they flank the team! Be
     sure to play your cards right here. The next hallway has a dialogue point w/
     Legion.
    
     [+2P] Things change.
     [+2R] You were naive.
     [+2P] It's not your fault.
     [+2R] It's their fault.
    
     In the final room, there's a medkit and several drones -- early warning signs
     of a large fight ahead. [And, as Legion says, drones in the room below can
     also be hacked.] Once our friendly geth starts the indexing process at the
     terminal, it'll be time to hold the line in the current chamber. Geth spawn
     in the (inaccessible) lower room, then come up one of the side-stairs to the
     drop-in point. Perhaps the best defensive position is in the room's middle,
     where a half-arc of blocks allow good sightlines to the stairways. There are
     3 waves to defeat in all, mostly made up of Hunters and Rocket Troopers. [Be
     sure to direct ally positions with the d-pad to concentrate fire better. At
     the end, Shepard can decide to rewrite the heretics or delete them entirely.
    
     [+30P] We'll rewrite them.
     [+30R] It's safer to kill them.
    
     No matter which option's picked, the team will have 3:00 to evacuate the
     station. The exit corridor is stuffed with typical geth types (hunters,
     troopers, etc.) with one gigantic Prime blocking the way out. There should be
     ample time to cut through the synthetics on normal(esque) difficulties, but
     on higher ones, utilizing better strategies -- like pairing Adrenaline Rush,
     Disruptor Ammo, and the Viper sniper rifle -- to swathe a path out.

     Back onboard, there will be an immediate argument between Legion/Tali (if her
     loyalty mission was completed) about some stuff. Like usual, normal options
     that side with one ally make the other lose loyalty; the para/gade-specific
     options settle the dispute without sacrificing anyone's loyalty.
    
     [+15P] You're both right.

     Miranda's mission takes everyone to the Crescent Nebula's Tasale system, on
     planet Ilium's main city, Nos Astra. Assuming the place hasn't visited yet, a

     Once the shuttle drops Shepard's crew in, Eclipse mercs appear for a talk.
    
     [+2P] I'm with Miranda.
    
     Either way, instant firefight. Eclipse's hired help are mostly organic with
     a few mechs in the mix, so nothing y'haven't seen already. After the second
     fight, Miranda talks at the elevator.
    
     [+2P] We need to get to your sister.
    
     A few more battles later (look for Medigel Capacity & Submachine Gun Damage
     upgrades!), the cargo line is reached, which is where conveyor arms drag the
     containers through the battlefield. This acts as an obstacle and gives foes
     time to regroup, so it's advised to flank 'em if possible. There's plenty of
     Eclipse engineers here and they'll setup attack drones, so don't get too
     close or they'll fire incendiary rockets.
    
     Once the elevator guards are destroyed, take the lift up to the final battle
     area.
    
     [+2P] Maybe you're right.
     [+2R] Niket betrayed you.
    
     [+2P] What happens now?
     [+2R] Kill him.
     [+2P] We can solve this peacefully.
     [+5P] [Stop Miranda from shooting]
    
     This starts a shootout with Enyala, the asari biotic seen in the cutscene. The
     cohorts are basic Eclipse mercs, although some may have multiple healthbars
     for the event (Enyala always has three). Incendiary Ammo is the way to go, but
     watch out for flankers! When done, search the area for remaining items, with
     the sidequest-related Trinket near the exit door being something useful to
     take. [This place is one-time-only, remember.]
    
     The closure scenes afterwards have no para/gadeness.

     Sis-related dialogue...
    
     [+2P] What about Oriana?
    
     Additionally, if Jack's loyalty mission was done, there'll be an argument
     between the two ladies ("Take pictures!" Joker says, haha). The default
     options have Shepard siding with one of them, making the other lose loyalty,
     while the para/gade options salvage both of the crewmembers' loyalty.
    
     [+15P] This is a distraction.
     [+15R] This ends now!
    
     NOTE: Whoever gets shunned and loses loyalty over the argument can have their
     loyalty regained with para/gade options. They won't say anything else to
     Shepard 'til this is cleared up, though. Reconciliation can occur when one's
     para/gade points are at 'x' amount of the total amount currently available --
     basically, the earlier the hatchet's buried, the better.

     The first part of this quest involves navigating the ruined superstructures
     of Tuchanka's wasteland. Clan Weyrloc employs krogans only, which means using
     incendiary ammo/Incinerate are good ideas (among other things). Klixen, the
     insectoid rachni-like enemies, are also found out here -- if y'haven't seen
     'em in Grunt's loyalty mission yet, they blow up when killed! Stay away from
     the blast radius. [There's also varren but those are nothing new.] Either
     way, there's four main battlesites to this outdoor place, none too special.
     Watch out for short-range pyros appearing towards the end! [The Combustion
     Manifold is part of the base camp mechanic's wishlist, a tiny sidequest.]
    
     Inside the repurposed hospital, examining a corpse gives para/gade options.
    
     [+2P] I'm stopping this.
    
     Further in, Weyrloc's clanspeaker appears to spread a message of terror. Eek!
    
     [+2P] You're letting us go? Why?
     [+2R] Look what I've done so far.
     [+2P] No one else has to die!
     [+5R] [Shoot flammable pipe to kill clanspeaker]
    
     A battle with "hardened Blood Pack veterans" ensues, but it ain't that hard.
     Since the foes start on the balcony, they quickly maneuver downstairs via the
     ramp bottleneck -- moving there immediately can catch them without any cover
     and show 'em the true meaning of slaughter! The lab is the next stop. The
     most important thing to get is the Krogan Vitality upgrade, which should be
     the 2nd and final one to claim. Inspecting the dead krogan female gives some
     dialogue, too.
    
     [+2R] We killed dozens already.
     [+2P] The genophage was wrong.
     [+2R] The genophage was right.
     [+2R] Great. Talk about the corpse.
     [+2P] That's garbage.
     [+2R] I agree with you.
    
     Finding the chief scout's...err, scout in an anteroom gives more dialogue.
     Since he's been brainwashed, being forceful or uncaring makes him die; using
     para/gade options to send him back to base saves his life (he gives an email
     later about this).
    
     [+2P] We were looking for you.
     [+2P] Mordin can help.
     [+2R] Just sit tight.
     [+2P] Can you get out?
     [+2R] I dealt with them.
     [+2P] I want to help.
     [+2P] Stay here. I'm trying to help!
     [+2R] [Lie] Relax. It's okay.
     [+5R] Forget it. I'm leaving.
     [+5P] It doesn't help your clan.
     [+5R] I see what's really going on.
    
     When entering the next room, EDI notifies the team that the crates contain
     explosive materials -- a poor- or well-placed shot can send 'em flying. This
     is also the final battlesite, a two-layered room with walkways spanning an
     abyss. The Weyrloc Guld chief appears towards the end (3 healthbars), with a
     few varren and associates. Hack a terminal in the remaining stairway for a
     heavy weapons ammo upgrade, then go see Maelon...
    
     [+02R] He betrayed you.
     [+02P] What now, Mordin?
     [+02R] This project is over.
     [+05P] [Stop Mordin from killing Maelon]
     [+02P] Leave, Maelon. Now.
     [+02P] Are you okay?
     [+02R] Are we done?
     [+02P] His research was sick.
     [+02R] Might be worth keeping.
     [+15P] You should help the krogan.
     [+15R] Genophage was the right call.
     [+15P] Hold onto the data.
     [+15R] Destroy the data for now.
    
     Make sure to stay behind instead of immediately leaving; this lets one hack
     the terminal in Maelon's lab.

                     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [Refer to section WK03 for map, if needed.]
    
     This mission typically unlocks one mission/event after Samara's been invited,
     and once talked to, she's ready to get back on the trail of the Ardat-Yakshi
     murderess she's been pursuing. This takes everyone back to the familiar
     Omega station.
    
    STEP 1: Talk with Aria
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     This saucy lass is still in Omega's Afterlife club, and must be tapped for
     info on Morinth. Question about "Samara's Daughter" to learn the Ardat-Yakshi
     last targeted a girl from the tenements nearby.
    
    STEP 2: Find Tenements
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     The tenement in question is right near the entrance to the quarantine zone.
     Diana has some para/gade options.
    
     [+2P] I believe you.
     [+2P] I'm on your side.
     [+5P] [Console Diana]
     [+2R] No promises.
    
     This gives access to Nef's room, and the diary's oldest entry will give the
     "password" to access the lounge where Morinth picked up her prey. However,
     be sure to read the other entries to learn about Vaeria and Hallex, which'll
     be important later. Samara ruminates on the events...
    
     [+2R] This sounds easy.
     [+2P] A perfect predator.
     [+2R] Can't wait to meet her.
    
     It's decided Shepard will be the bait to lure Morinth out of the shadows, as
     the killer's MO is to find artistic individuals and play soul-sucker! And so
     the middle step is...
    
    STEP 3: Access VIP Lounge
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     The VIP lounge hasn't been accessible until this loyalty mission, so a player
     may not know where it is. Basically, it's north of the market area (eastern
     side of map), not connected to where Afterlife is situated. There's a bouncer
     to talk to, who allows admittance only when Januut's name-dropped.
    
    STEP 4: Lure out Morinth
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Playing bait is as easy as being interesting, which means mingling with the
     other residents to show Morinth (who's not present, but is probably watching
     from the shadows) Shepard's creative spark. Basically, the option is to stand
     out, i.e. resolve barflies' conflicts successfully, not cop out as a neutral
     third party. Fail too many conversation events and Morinth ends up leaving!
     First off, para/gade for all the conversations:
    
     Vij --------- [+2R] Get away from me 
     Verf -------- [+5R] Let's step outside.
     Edwin ------- [+5P] Treat your customers.
     Edwin ------- [+5P] Let's do it.
    
     An overview of the small events...
    
     • Meln is hitting on an asari dancer, thinking she's some easy broad, and
       Shepard can step in and give the turian a tumble. [No para/gade required]
    
     • Shepard can use a paragade-only option to dance with Waera; the others just
       make him/her get shot down! [Nothing really comes of this, although Waera
       stops dancing if Shepard gets shot down...that's a killjoy for ya.]
    
     • Verf can be insulted (requires renegade option) by asking him to step
       outside, which betrays his relative cowardice. Any other options just make
       it seem like Shepard's talking big.
    
     • If Shep can get Edwin to give a round of drinks to everyone, either out of
       paragon-specific coaxing or a nice marketing strategy, there's 5 paragon
       points earned.
    
     • Vertin and his accomplice are planning on an alley ambush, and Shepard can
       intervene by paying them off (-5000c). No para/gadeness to earn, but either
       extreme is necessary to bribe them.
    
     • Horftin wants his investigative reporter friend out of the local gang boss'
       clutches, who's caught on and is ready to exterminate her. The code words
       to spook her are "terminal" and "eternity," and must be worked into a
       conversation (in that order). Doing it right gets the girl out safely; any
       missteps have her buying shoes. Cement shoes. [She'll die...get it?]
    
    STEP 4: Sweet-talk Morinth
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     When 3-4 barfly events conclude, Morinth asks Shepard to have a chat in her
     private booth. There's a lot of topics to chat about, but the rule of thumb
     is to avoid sounding shallow ("Hurrr, I like watching explosions!") and
     appeal to Morinth's eye for creativity. Coming off as a no-nothing doofus
     will have Morinth leave "to get drinks" and not return.
    
     Talking about Expel 10, Hallex, and Vaeria is a surefire way to get invited
     back to the apartment, but if Shepard didn't get those tipoffs from Nef's
     video journals, para/gade-specific options exist to flaunt the qualities
     Morinth's looking for...basically a way to get through without being reliant
     on the tipoffs.
    
     Morinth will typically leave the conversation if (1) Shepard doesn't have the
     appropriate para/gadeness to clarify points which make make him/her come off
     as shallow (2) certain dialogue flags, like learning about Expel 10, Hallex,
     and Vaeria, haven't been learned. 
    
    STEP 5: Ensnaring Morinth
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Morinth asked Shep back to her place? You lucky dog, you! Make sure to look
     around the place (there's an assault rifle damage upgrade on the wall, and
     an easily missable one at that). Resisting Morinth's Ardat-Yakshi powers
     requires a relatively high para/gade amount; without it, Shepard succumbs to
     her wiles.
    
     [+#?] We're not alike.
     [+#?] I'm the stronger.
    
     At this point, Samara interrupts the lovefest for a fight. [And yes, the sound
     often cuts out here, so it's not just you! Turn on subtitles if they're not
     already.] 
    
     [+#?] Are you okay?
    
     NOTE: There is an infinite paragon point glitch to do here. After Samara gets
     her target, the options are "Are you okay?" "Not yet." and "I am." Picking
     "Are you okay?" gives +2P and by picking "Not yet." can be done repeatedly.
     Will taking this route be long and boring? Definitely. But it's still an
     option for those who haven't been investing in Combat Mastery 'til lategame.

     Tali's mission takes the team to the Migrant Fleet's location in the Valhallan
     Threshold cluster. Before any dungeon-crawling begins, Tali must visit her
     "hometown." [Having Legion along complicates matters a bit, and it's worth
     playing through the loyalty mission at least once with him, just to see the
     changes.]

     A shuttle will be waiting to take Tali's father's ship, although feel free

     The only foes inside the Alarei are geth, so using (Squad) Disruptor Ammo'll
     come in quite handy. The first two encounters are rather small in size, with
     hunters and normal types attacking with assault rifles. It's the 3rd fight,
     in an upstairs lab, where things bump up in stature. There's routes on three
     sides of the room and geth stream out two doors, so it's important to take a
     position that minimizes flanking. Past there, looking at a screen gives some
     Tali-centric dialogue.
    
     [+2P] That's a bad idea.
     [+2R] That's a worthy promise.
     [+2P] Then find another world.
     [+2R] So take it back, then.
     [+2P] Settle down somewhere else.
     [+2R] It's worth it.
    
     Another battle takes place on the adjacent stairway, and like before, it's
     a good idea to watch the bottleneck and eliminate geth streaming up. Or, if
     you like getting flanked and murdered, do the exact opposite! [:D] Loot the
     chamber and enter the next corridor for a heartfelt scene.
    
     [+5P] [Hug Tali ;_;]
     [+2P] This wasn't his choice.
     [+2R] We'll destroy the geth.
     [+2P] He did what he could.
     [+2R] The geth cut him off.
    
     Loot the anteroom and save before going upstairs, where the final battle
     with a small geth platoon takes place (pretty average 'cept for a Prime).
     The console at the back lets Tali collect evidence on what the Alarei did.
    
     [+2P] He wanted to keep his promise.
     [+2R] That's what we needed.
     [+2R] That sounded bad.
    
    PART 3: Trial Conclusion
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     After arriving back on the Alarei, return to the central plaza where the trial
     is still underway...
    
     [+02P] You should pardon Tali.
     [+02R] You could have waited.
    
     [+30P] Tali is exonerated without selling out her father
     [+30R] Tali is exonerated by selling out her father
    
     Rallying the crowd gets Tali off the hook on all charges, and it's not even a
     para/gade option, so that may be preferable to (not) submitting Rael's
     evidence and making more dire decisions. However, it can only be done if
     Shepard went the paragon route with Veetor and Kal'Reegar earlier in the
     game.
    
     [+2P] Don't go to war.
     [+2R] Good luck in the war.
     [+2P] She's with me.
    
     The reward Shepard receives if Tali's exonerated is a Tech Damage upgrade. The
     "last walk" before exile can be done, and goodbyes can be said, as well. Some
     dialogue changes depending on the admiralty board's verdict.

     [+2R] All that matters is victory.   | "
     [+2P] I support Tali.                | Shala'Raan (exiled)
     [+2R] She had no choice!             | "
     [+2P] This was Rael's fault.         | Admiral Gerrel (exiled/exonerated)
     [+2R] You don't want to know.        | "
     [+2P] I'm sorry.                     | Admiral Gerrel (Rael blamed)
     [+2R] That's not my problem.         | "
     [+2P] You were motivated.            | Veetor (exonerated)
     [+2P] Thanks for standing by me.     | Kal'Reegar (exonerated)
     [+2P] Keep pushing for peace.        | Admiral Koris (exonerated)
     [+2R] You need to go to war.         | "
    
     Mission reward: 15000c, 750 EXP
    
     Note that Tali's loyalty is not automatically gotten if Shepard publicized
     what her father had done with the geth.

     Talking to Tali after all is done gives verdict-specific dialogue, although
     only being pardoned gives any para/gadeness:
    
     [+2P] I wanted to help you.   --.
     [+2R] You wanted this, too.     |- If Rael's evidence is revealed in court
     [+2P] I'm so sorry, Tali.       |
     [+2R] You'll change your mind. -'
     [+2P] You deserved better. ------- If Tali is exonerated

                     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Our drell assassin's mission takes everyone back to the Citadel. The objective
     is to find his errant son who's taken on a risky job. This loyalty sidequest
     is different from the others in that it's not fight-oriented; in fact, there's
     none to be had at all. It's all 'bout the info!
    
    STEP 1: Find Info on Kolyat
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Visit Captain Bailey in C-Sec again and ask about Thane's son, learning that
     someone who can help (Mouse) works out of a public terminal in the Dark Star
     bar upstairs. When the petty criminal's found, time to interrogate!
    
     [+5R] [Forcefully knock Mouse down]
     [+5P] We'll protect you.
     [+5R] I'm losing patience.
     
     Using the para/gade-specific answers, the renegade prompt, or simply bribing
     Mouse (3000c) will get the info needed: Elias Kelham is the assassination
     target. Return to Bailey to convey the info, then agree to interrogate this
     Elias
    
    STEP 2: Interrogate Elias
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Joram Talid is revealed to be the hit target, either by renegade prompt
     brutality, smooth-talk bargaining for information, or waffling until the
     lawyer arrives and a deal's made. [No para/gadeness for these options, oddly
     enough.] Bailey automatically swoops the team off to the 800 Blocks for the
     next segment...
    
    STEP 3: Prevent Assassination
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     This mission is as follows: Joram will be walking below on his normal rounds,
     Shepard's on an upper catwalk, and Thane is hiding in the shadows. Shepard's
     job is to follow the turian target and update Thane when prompted (this only
     occurs if target is within nearby sightlines). Before starting, get the Heavy
     Pistol damage upgrade from the catwalk computer -- this segment's the only
     chance to do so!
    
     The turian and his bodyguard follow a set path, so there's no random factor
     to bother with. Just make sure to keep them in view at all times, else Thane
     will ask for an update and it can't be given. [If time runs out on an update,
     or Shepard loses track of Joram, Kolyat hits his mark and flees -- this is the
     only way the loyalty mission can fail.] Here's a list of stops.
    
     [1] Talking with voters on street
     [2] Talking with another voter
     [3] Letting bodyguard extort money from Aquila building
     [4] Giving bartender a shakedown
     [5] Meeting some mercenaries
    
     After the fifth, Shepard meets a stockboy through one of the doors.
    
     [+5R] [Sucker-punch kid to at start or end of conversation]
     [+5P] I'm a health inspector. 
     [+5R] There's a bomb!
    
     Following, a Kolyat scene appears in Talid's apartment, but no para/gade
     options to be wary of.
    
     Mission reward: 30000c, 750 EXP
    
    C-SEC SCENES
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     [+5P] Those guys were criminals.
     [+5R] Who cares about tham?
    
    NORMANDY SR-2
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Surprisingly, Thane has nothing to say if Kolyat was rescued from a life of
     crime (positive outcome), and only expresses a little regret if they couldn't
     stop him in time (negative outcome). Either way, no para/gade.

     Unlike others' characters, Zaeed's loyalty mission is unlocked by recruiting
     him only. His quest for revenge leads Shepard to the Ismar Frontier's Faia 
     cluster, planet Zorya.

            START
    
     After infiltrating the planet, proceed down the verdant trail until Vido's
     mercs catch sight of the party. The Blue Suns' weapons of choice are assault
     rifles, while heavies carry homing missiles, most par for the course by now.
     Switch to organic-centric abilities like Incendiary Ammo to cut these guys
     down to size. Toggle with the bridge's operating controls further down the
     path when able.
    
     [+2P] You know this guy?
     [+2R] Vido sounds dangerous.
    
     After entering the gatehouse, Vido is introduced.
    
     [+2P] That was unnecessary.
     [+2R] Warn me next time.
     [+2P] We came to save these people.
     [+5P] [Give Zaeed a good punch]
     [+2R] You do what I tell you.
     [+2P] Keep to the mission, or else.
     [+2R] If that's what you need.
    
     They really don't make pipes like they used to, eh? Past the first battle,
     a major decision has to be made, whether to save the refinery workers from a
     towering inferno, or fulfill Zaeed's revenge, twenty years in the making. If
     it makes the decision any easier, Zaeed becomes loyal for the latter, and
     remains unloyal for the former. [He can be made loyal still, but those who
     want his Inferno Grenade ability unlocked should make up their minds now...]
    
     [+02P] You suggest we leave them?
     [+02R] You must really want him dead.
     [+15P] Forget loyalty. We save them.
     [+15R] Zaeed's right. Vido must die.
    
     The route for the rest of the level bifurcates depending on how Shepard 
     handles the situation (the other path won't be accessible). As such, the
     walkthrough will split up too.
    
    "SAVE WORKERS" PATH BRANCH
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     As the factory explodes, Shepard's team rushes to save the innocents from
     melting into piles of goo. The path through the flames is quite linear and
     has little room for error, with the player simply rerouting fuel at consoles
     and eventually turning on the extinguisher system. Snag the Heavy Weapons Ammo
     upgrade and, down the corridors, the M-451 Firestorm flamethrower, which 
     replaces the current heavy weapon. Don't worry though -- Shepar can change it
     out at the weapons locker a bit down the way.
    
    "KILL VIDO" PATH BRANCH
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     This route may be shorter than the refinery workers part, but it's more
     eventful, with Blue Suns mercs of all colors trying to hold the team from
     advancing. Most are just normal troopers but a few heavies appear as well.
     A terminal in-between fights has an assault rifle damage upgrade, so make sure
     to pocket that before continuing. This route leads eventually rejoins to the
     hallway where the M-451 Firestorm flamethrower is obtainable. [It's worth
     mentioning that there's no saving during this path segment, even during
     downtime.]
    
    AFTER PATHS REJOIN
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Through the next door, the team stumbles onto the factory floor, where Blue
     Suns mercs are waiting to draw blood. As the fight rages, stray fire will
     trigger a leak in the overhead explosive crate, sending a fiery geyster
     straight downward as it moves along its rail. Shooting it from the mechanical
     hand's grasp sends it to the floor in a huge explosion...good for taking out
     the gangmembers en masse, as long as y'don't get in the blast radius also.
     At the end, there's a YMIR mech to scrap, and the environmental pipes lend
     themselves well to the standoff. Vido is brought to a grim end, if Zaeed's
     wish is fulfilled; he escapes if the paragon path was chosen, and there's a
     bit of extra dialogue after.
    
     [+#?] You brought this on yourself.

     ME1's ability list has been pared down to a select few, so things aren't as
     complicated as before. All allies have set abilities (plus one special skill
     unlocked once their loyalty is gained) while the player can choose Shepard's
     class, from a set of six: Soldier, Infiltrator, Vanguard, Sentinal, Adept,
     and Engineer.      ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___

     Here's an overview of all abilities. Each ability consists of three levels
     plus an evolution, which the player decides -- 5 possibilities in all. The
     evolution names are listed to the right of each table. Abilities are listed
     in alphabetical order; those with names beside them indicate loyalty skills
     that are specific to that character (except when Shepard obtains them during
     research).
    
     Recharge times are based off of Shepard, if applicable (s/he often gets lower
     ones if they're loyalty-specific). In those cases, normal recharges are listed
     to the right.

     This skill commandeers a(n armorless, shieldless) enemy to attack its allies
     for a set time period. As points are invested, the hacked target generates a
     shield to help keep it alive when its squad concentrates fire on it. "Area
     AI Hacking," like many evolutions, gives the skill an impact radius to affect
     more synthetics at a time.

     A soldier-specific skill that slows down time, boosts weapons damage for the
     duration, and lets a player get a more accurate shot. This is most helpful
     for rapidfire weapons and sniper rifles, the latter especially. If upgraded
     to "Hardened Adrenaline Rush" and attacked during that state, the player gets
     a damage shave of 50% (i.e. incur half damage).

     Jacob's loyalty ability creates a biotic barrier that soaks up damage, keeping
     him alive longer. The barrier's strength is based off the percentage of his
     current shields, so the more he has, the better the skill becomes.

     This skill creates a drone to attack enemies, which lasts until it's killed
     or the duration ends. It's great for causing a distraction or just for some
     extra firepower. Its evolutions either increase damage or give it a pulse
     radius (for area-of-effect damage). Most people will choose the Attack Drone
     evolution, though; the other seems to be less useful.

     by another ammo power (for better or worse).

     who have neither, the user drains health and leaves 'em helpless while the
     effect continues. Unlike most other biotics, Reave is instantaneous -- no
     arcing trajectory!

      Warp is effective against armor and biotic barriers, and affected enemies
      have their health regeneration stopped. If the target is already affected
      by a biotic power when they're hit with Warp, it (1st biotic power) explodes
      to deal extra damage. Since Warp's projectile arcs towards the target, it's
      important to aim above high-up enemies, which makes it arc down to strike
      instead of rise up (which can often make it smack harmlessly into cover).

     Here's an overview of the classes Shepard can choose from, their pros and
     cons, and some other advice. Asterisked (*) abilities unlock when the skill
     above it is level 2.
    
    ADEPT
    Ż|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ| Uses: Pistols, SMGs
     |- Warp            |
     |- Throw*          | Adepts focus primarily on biotic, not weapons, damage 
     |- Singularity     | and have plenty of great skills to back it up. The class
     |- Pull*           | becomes a lot stronger as the game goes on, so in the
     |- Shockwave*      | early going, weapon-oriented allies're good complements
     |- Biotic Mastery  | to have around. 
     |__________________| 
    
      Good bonus abilities:
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      • Energy Drain: Shielding is a biotic user's bane, and this is the only
        bonus ability that specifically targets shields.
    
      • Warp Ammo: since Adepts get no ammo powerup, Warp Ammo -- which is good
        against armor, health, and barriers -- is a perfect match if one needs a
        bit more oomph in attacks.
    
      "What weapons training should I get...?"
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      Having pistols and SMGs makes the adept mostly a short-range fighter (for
      maximum efficiency), so the obvious choices are getting assault rifles for
      mid-range power or sniper rifles for long-range ability. 
    
    ENGINEER
    Ż|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ| Uses: Pistols, SMGs
     |- Overload        |
     |- Incinerate*     | Engineers' forte is neutralizing enemy defenses, either
     |- Combat Drone    | with Overload (shields) and Incinerate (armor), or being
     |- Cryo Blast*     | a complete nuisance with Combat Drone and AI Hacking.
     |- AI Hacking*     | Being tech specialists, they only get minimal weapons
     |- Tech Mastery    | options, so it helps to surround oneself with allies who
     |__________________| can do the bullet-flinging.
    
      Good bonus abilities:
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      • Dominate: AI Hacking applies only to synthetics, and with this skill
        fully upgraded, they can target organics as well -- battlefield enemies
        are their puppets!
    
      • Reave: To compliment the class' disabling abilities, having a skill that's
        good against barriers is self-evidently awesome.
    
      • Warp Ammo: since Engies get no ammo powerup, Warp Ammo -- which is good
        against armor, health, and barriers -- is a perfect match if one needs a
        bit more oomph in attacks.
    
      "What weapons training should I get...?"
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      Like adepts, an engineer's weapons are primarily geared for short-range
      attacks, so going the assault rifle (mid-range) or sniper rifle path (long-
      -range) makes sense. If the engineer has Warp Ammo, then assault rifle may
      be the smart decision.
    
    INFILTRATOR
    Ż|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ| Uses: Pistols, SMGs, Sniper Rifles
     |- Disruptor Ammo  |
     |- Cryo Ammo*      | Infiltrators' get decent techs and the ability to cloak
     |- Tactical Cloak  | themselves (for bonus weapon damage), so they're quite
     |- Incinerate*     | good at any range. 
     |- AI Hacking*     |
     |- Operative       |

        fully upgraded, they can target organics as well -- battlefield enemies
        are their puppets!
    
      • Warp Ammo: despite getting ammo powerups, Warp Ammo -- which is good
        against armor, health, and barriers -- is a perfect match for Infiltrators
        and can stack with their cloak-based damage bonuses. Since the class isn't
        that good against barriers, combining this ammo skill with headshots can
        make up for some of that.
    
      "What weapons training should I get...?"
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      There's really only one good answer, and it's the Widow sniper rifle, one
      of the few classes that can obtain it. Combined with Assassination Cloak
      and an ammo ability, Widow headshots (which have a time dilation effect for
      more accurate shooting) dominate many enemies, such as scions, which are
      typical annoyances.
    
    SENTINEL
    Ż|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ| Uses: Pistols, SMGs
     |- Throw           |
     |- Warp*           | Sentinels are jacks-of-all-trades, bringing both biotic
     |- Tech Armor      | and techs to the fray, and increasing their survivability
     |- Overload*       | with the awesome Tech Armor skill. The weak selection of
     |- Cryo Blast*     | weapons means it helps to surround oneself with allies
     |- Defender        | who can bring the heat, like Grunt or Legion, up-close.

      Good bonus abilities:
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      • Geth Shield Boost/Barrier: Tech Armor provides a lot of protection on the
        battlefield, but for even more protection, these shield-boosting abilities
        can stack and make Sentinels nigh unkillable.
    
      • Warp Ammo: Sentinels get no ammo power, and since Warp Ammo's good against
        just about every type of defense a foe can throw up, it helps maximize
        those SMGs' short- to mid-range potential.
    
      "What weapons training should I get...?"
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      Any can work, since Sentinels get close-range abilities but have abilities
      that let them work closer into the fighting. Shotguns work for close-range
      encounters, assault rifles for mid-range and closer, and sniper rifles for
      preemptive strikes. If Warp Ammo's chosen, then shotguns or snipers seem to
      be the best choice.
    
    SOLDIER
    Ż|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ| Uses: Pistols, Assault Rifles, Shotguns, Sniper Rifles
     |- Adrenaline Rush |
     |- Concussive Shot*| Soldiers are battle-hardened veterans, able to deal with
     |- Disruptor Ammo  | any situation through pure force -- having three ammo
     |- Incendiary Ammo*| powers helps, just as the time-dilating, damage-boosting
     |- Cryo Ammo*      | Adrenaline Rush does. As a tradeoff, they have one power
     |- Battle Mastery  | and zero biotics, but that's fine...bullets to the face
     |__________________| send a clear message.
    
      Good bonus abilities:
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      • Armor Piercing Ammo: This gives a damage bonus to health and armor, which
        basically every enemy has, so it's a good choice just by probability of
        use. 
    
      • Fortification/Barrier/Etc.: any ability that increases shields, armor, and
        the like gives soldiers increased survivability, which is always good as
        they're always at the frontlines.
    
      • Inferno Grenade: Zaeed's incendiary bomb is a great complement to one's
        arsenal, capable of eliminating mass groups of organics with ease, either
        setting up a kill or killing outright. Since Concussive Blast is the only
        area-of-effect skill a Soldier has innately, this is a great choice.
    
      • Warp Ammo: Even with three ammo powers, because Warp Ammo's good against
        just about every type of defense a foe can throw up, it helps maximize
        the assault rifles' mid-ranged potential.
    
      "What weapons training should I get...?"
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      Soldiers are the only class that can use the Revenant machine gun, which has
      high ammo capacity and a furious firerate, but that Widow sniper rifle's also
      tempting -- it really depends on the user's style of play. Adrenaline Rush is
      good with either, so there's no wrong choice.
    
    
    VANGUARD
    Ż|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ| Uses: Pistols, SMGs, Shotguns
     |- Incendiary Ammo |
     |- Cryo Ammo*      | As the class' ability list might suggest, these suckers
     |- Charge          | are notable for their kamikaze-style bumrushing, getting
     |- Shockwave*      | in close to the opposition and decimating 'em with 
     |- Pull*           | biotic powers or the feared Charge skill. Their downside
     |- Assault Mastery | is the obvious high-risk attack strategy, and that they
     |__________________| don't have any awesome ranged weapons...to start, anyway.
    
      Good bonus abilities:
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      • Fortification/Barrier/Etc.: any ability that increases shields, armor, and
        the like gives vanguards increased survivability, which is always good as
        they're always at the frontlines.
    
      • Reave: Reave helps remove an enemy's defenses, not to mention healing the
        user if an organic's targeted, so it has a double usefulness for chargin'
        Vanguards.
    
      • Warp Ammo: Because the vanguard's going to be at close-range fighting most
        of the time, the damage increase can help in advancing or retreating from
        the main battle.
    
      "What weapons training should I get...?"
      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
      Vanguards are already good at close- and mid-range attacking, so one can
      focus on shotguns or branch out to assault/sniper rifles, which give extra
      range when not charging. Depends on how the player likes using the class.

     Here's a list of DLC and where it's obtained from. Typically, all DLC is
     gotten by redeeming codes (1) automatically obtained from newly-purchased
     games, such as collector's editions (2) special offers, such as Dr. Pepper's
     promotion in 2010 (3) the Cerberus Network DLC.
    
     Much of the DLC is downloadable only through the Cerberus Network DLC, which
     funnels all of through in one place. New copies of ME2 come with a card that
     gives the network for free; without it, it costs 1200 microsoft points (MSP)
     to get. It incentivizes getting new copies, basically.

     that can augment stats a bit. Here's a list of all that jazz. If an item's

     In ME2, planets are the main source of raw elements, used to upgrade weapons,
     the Normandy, and tech/biotic abilities. However, these are gotten by scanning
     alone, rather than mining as ME1 did. Any uncivilized planet can be scanned
     by pressing Y-button, holding L-Trig to manually scan, and hitting R-Trig to
     launch a collector probe. [Probes have to be bought at fuel depots, located
     in whichever system the cluster's mass relay is in; this applies to every
     cluster except the Far Rim, which is in geth space.]
    
     In descending order of wealth, planets range from Rich, Good, Moderate, Poor,
     and Depleted. The player is notified when a planet's resources are dwindling,
     and even when enough of 'x' mineral has been collected that a research project
     is affordable. [Smaller planets tend to be the richest, too.]
    
     Sometimes when a planet is scanned, EDI notifies the player that an anomaly
     has been detected. In this case, when scanning, follow the white line in the
     scanner's center to find the anomaly, which appears as a white spot when the
     scanner hovers over. Launching a probe here allows the team to land on the
     planet, doing a small side-mission. ["AD!" is the notation for anomalies in
     the overviews below.]
    
     TIP 1: Thane's Modular Probe Baby upgrade doubles probes to 60 -- get it!
     TIP 2: Miranda's Advanced Mineral Scanner makes scanning easier -- get it too!
     TIP 3: Tap L-Trig while moving it around to find minerals faster
     TIP 4: Don't bother scanning Poor planets, unless you're hard up (time waste!)
    
     Systems become available through missions, emails, overhearing conversations,
     and buying planetary maps. Clusters available by default are:
    
     • Eagle Nebula           • Ismar Frontier        • Omega Nebula
     • Hourglass Nebula       • Local Cluster         • Serpent Nebula

     Location: Level 26
     Unlock -: Overhear argument
     Reward -: 1000c, 40 EXP
    
     An argument overheard: a volus accuses a quarian of stealing his credit chit,
     and now a C-Sec officer's siding with the volus! [If Tali's with, there's a
     few extra dialogue options while "investigate"ing.] Either way, it turns out
     the two parties bumped into one another outside Saronis Applications, and
     that's where the whole mess started. Visiting the store down the way gives an
     option to ask about the credit chit; this info can then be relayed to the
     volus.

     Reward -: 1000c, 40 EXP
    
     In "Eye for an Eye," towards the end, there's an opportunity to find some
     forged IDs in an overwatch booth. This can be brought to two asaris sitting
     by a stairwell. After some awesome back-and-forthing between the two parties
     -- which always gives Shep a chance to apologize if required! -- s/he can
     offer up the fake IDs and complete the mission.
    
    CITADEL: KROGAN SUSHI
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Location: Level 27
     Unlock -: Overhear the krogans' conversation
     Reward -: 1000c, 40 EXP
    
     One of the more fanciful sidequests, Shep can overhear a convo about how
     the krogan want to climb up the outer hull and get fish from the Presidium's
     lakes (ahaha). Visit Level 28's Dark Star bar to find a groundskeeper, who'll
     confirm there's definitely no fish in the lakes. Relay the info to Kargesh
     and finish the quest.
    
     [+5P] There are no fish.
     [+5R] [LIE] I have a Presidium fish.
    
     Note that y'can only lie to the poor goofball if a fish has been bought from
     the gift shop at some point. Basically, the game thinks you have a fish as
     long as one isn't available for purchase -- it doesn't matter if it's dead
     in the tank or anything.

     Reward -: 40 EXP
    
     Shepard's life-long fan, and fan favorite, Conrad Verner has shown up at the
     bar and can be talked to.
    
     [+2P] For crying out loud...
     [+2R] [Hit him.]
     [+5R] [Shoot his foot.]
     [+2P] Let me handle this.
     [+5R] Get lost, Conrad. We're done.
    
     If Shepard shot Conrad and sent him packing, the quest finishes there. If
     Shep agreed to talk to the undercover cop saying the bar's a red sand front,

     Using para/gade options on the asari unlocks her kiosk discount, the only way
     to do so. Regardless, with her scheme kaput, return to Conrad at the bar.

     The girl who runs the shop "Memories of Ilium" has an ex-boyfriend trying to
     win back her love. Shepard can either persuade her to dump his behind or 
     commit fully for marriage n' rugrats. [These require para/gade points.]

     Gianna, the cop from the first game, finds Shepard walking around in Ilium.
    
     [+2P] It was my pleasure.
    
     After the convo, Gianna leaves and reminds Shep to drink the beer -- examine
     the glass to learn Gianna's reason for splitting: her target saw her! Shep's
     asked to talk the asari merchant nearby into showing the "good stuff" --
     the illegal stuff -- to assist Gianna.
    
     [+5R] You're being watched.
     [+5P] I'm a big spender.
     [+5R] This stuff might be crap.
     [+5P] Don't worry about the license.
     [+5R] Don't waste my time.
    
     Using initial para/gade options can get a kiosk discount (this is also gotten
     if the asari's tipped off to Gianna's plans) while inquiring about the
     advanced merchandise leads to the entrapment options. Either way, talk with
     Gianna at the end to finish, supposing Shep helped her.
    
     [+2P] You love doing this.

     agree to help...
    
     [+2P] Free your slave. Now.

     convince the asari to buy the quarian's contract, or forget the whole thing
     and...
    
     [+5P] This would be good business.
     [+5R] You're prejudiced.
    
     [+2P] No problem.
     [+2R] I don't need your thanks.

     Shiala from ME1 can be found here (or a colonist if she wasn't saved) and
     talks about Zhu's Hope, which is rebuilding from its attack two years prior.
     Due to health problems, a survey group was hired...only they preformed
     invasive scans and that made everyone quite irate.
     
     [+2P] Can I offer assistance?
    
     Either way, Shepard is tipped off to the Baria Frontiers representative right
     nearby. Time for a good ol' confrontation with Erinya. Although the asari's
     semi-racist, the point is to get her to open up (with para/gade options) to
     resolve the issue.
    
     [+#?] Tell me about your family.
     [+#?] They didn't hate aliens.

     At the end of "The Prodigal," before leaving via elevator, there's a locket

     Unlock -: Ask the Normandy engineers if they need anything
     Reward -: 40 EXP
    
     When Shepard first gets control of the Normandy, it's possible to ask around
     if anyone's discontent with the standard-issue stuff. The engineers say their
     couplings are slightly substandard and that FBA ones would make their jobs a
     lot easier. Finding the items is as simple as buying them from Kenn's Salvage
     on Omega (500c) and delivering them back.

     The good doctor regrets not opening her prized bottle of brandy, which was
     unfortunately destroyed on the first Normandy! Shepard has a chance to make
     things right, though. Purchase a bottle (1000c) at Ratch's Wares on Tuchanka,

     Like others on the Normandy, when asked, the cook says the crew could use a
     few special meals before going on the suicide mission...but he lacks delicious
     ingredients to make 'em. Satisfying his hunger (pun!) for foodstuffs can be
     done by buying High-Grade Provisions at the Citadel's Zakera Cafe (500c). The
     quest completes once they're delivered.

     Landing on Alchera lets Shepard visit the Normandy's wreck, which is strewn
     around a large, icy area. There's two things to do here: (1) place a monument
     to the fallen, which can be done in a number of places, neither mattering more
     than the other (2) collect 20 dog tags shimmering around the place, which goes
     to earning more experience. Some tags are in fragile crates.

     Location: Crescent Nebula -> Zelene - Helyme
     Unlock -: Scan for anomaly
     Reward -: 7500c, 125 EXP
    
     On Helyme, Eclipse mercs seem to have commandeered an abandoned mine and are
     doing...uh, evil things there. Eclipse mercs, of course, are typically either
     (1) lightly-armored footsoldiers (2) asari biotics with barriers. Either type
     is organic, so Incinerate/Incendiary Ammo/Inferno Grenade all clean up well.
     There's not many tips to give since this is a basic map with little surprises
     in store...but in the largest area (with the connectable bridge), it's
     possible to flank a platoon of mercs by taking the high ground, making their
     cover nigh useless. Could be helpful on higher difficulties!
    
     Once the mainframe is located, hack it and start decryption on the 2nd file
     -- this starts a 3-battle standoff with more mercs, who enter from where the
     ally squad first came in. Once things end, look at the decrypted file to see
     it needs even more decryption...luckily this'll be done by Cerberus. End the
     mission when ready. Items to find in this area:

     At the opposite end of the crater, deactivating the signal transmitter will
     summon LOKI mechs into the area, so prepare for a firefight. Near the exit
     shuttle, the freighter's only YMIR mech will activate and force a standoff.
     Fighting at level ground's fine, but a nearby hilltop can work as well. The
     planet's visibility will decline the longer one plays, so make it quick!

     Unlock -: Complete "N7: Wrecked Merchant Freighter"
     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP
    
     Upon seeing a grizzly welcome, it's clear from a datapad that the station's
     VI has begun killing everyone onboard. Someone cut power to many systems in
     the station, so begin by re-enabling the dock power and finding the hub. The
     main control area here is locked down, so reactivating power in the siderooms
     is necessary first.
    
     RESEARCH LAB: Turn on power to get access to the four computers. The goal is
                   to turn the reflective plating so that it destroys the tubelike
                   thing at the back of the room, giving training area access.
    
     ENGINEERING : The passageways here are venting deadly plasma gasses, which'll
                   quickly eat through shields and kill an ally -- move past when
                   they momentarily stop. This all stops when power's reactivated.
    
     LIVING QUARTERS: In the medical area, turn on the power to get comp access.
                      Fiddle with the computers until "5 doors enabled" is said
                      and they shut down.
    
     When all three areas' power is restored, the hub power can be too. Shut the
     rogue VI down to end the mission. Of course, make sure to loot the station
     for all its goodies (below) first:

     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP
    
     A research station's generator has crashed, and the sun's deadly radiation is
     streaming in! Oh noes. Shepard alone will go to the station, which is just a
     large platform on the sandy surface. Look for a bypassable console at one end,
     which lowers the shields to the four other consoles. The control switch
     gives function to one of the 3 remaining consoles: turn on the cooling unit
     first, then the generator, then the shield control. Items to find in this
     area:

     In the small canyon where the ship lands, there's apparently large resource
     deposits behind thick stone...with no way to get 'em, seemingly. Bypass the
     disabled YMIR mech's security to make it move...for a bit. The power cells
     nearby (quest item, not for heavy weapon ammo) can be inserted to clear the
     way forward. When the power runs out, scour the area for more power cells to
     get the YMIR stomping down the path. Varren guard the 3rd cell pickup, but
     they can be eliminated from a nearby clifftop first. The mech blows up after
     the 4th march, but that's okay -- the platinum beyond can be inspected &
     removed, ending the mission.

     Reward -: 7500c, 125 EXP
    
     Once planetside, EDI notifies the crew that there's a single quarian still
     living. Once found, it's Shepard's team's duty to protect her from invading
     hostiles: varren! Yes, these wolfish doggies are plentiful here but shouldn't
     be that difficult to nix, especially with (Squad) Incendiary Ammo. Explosive
     canisters around the place can be used for strategic kills, also. Although
     it's unlikely teammates will wander off, if they do, order them back to the
     quarian with the d-pad to maximize concentrated fire. [A healthbar displays
     quarian's remaining life.] After 3-4 waves, the shuttle arrives to exfiltrate
     everyone. Items found in this level, pre-battle:
    
     - Med Kit
     - 2000 Palladium

     Unlock -: Scan for anomaly
     Reward -: 3750c + (# of crates saved * 187.5)c, 125 EXP
    
     This tiny mission takes place in a cleared canyon. The goal: salvage as many
     of the 20 crates as possible from the (3) rampaging Eclipse YMIR mechs. The
     mechs focus on the crates innately, but when attacked, turn their fury on the
     humans -- that's the trick to saving more crates. Other than that, be careful
     y'don't break any crates accidentally. [There's 500 Element Zero to find when
     the dust settles.] It's easier to save crates by using the Cain heavy weapon,
     damage-boosted headshots, and AI Hacking. Gotta work quick because only one
     mech can be distracted at a time.
    
    N7: MSV ESTEVANICO

     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP
    
     Shepard (alone) lands at the Estevanico's wreckage, perched on the cusp of a
     precipice. One must walk along the girters and old walkways to proceed through
     the mazelike interior. Can't find a way to proceed? Either (1) shoot "loose
     tiles" to make a new path (2) climb up onto a long girter (3) backtrack a bit
     and see if the path breaks to access new spots. Accessing the mainframe at the
     end finishes the mission. Items found in this quest:
    
     - 500 Iridium (x4)
    
    N7: ABANDONED MINE

     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP
    
     As the landing scenes tell the player, the mine is going to be filled with
     husks, so kick in (Squad) Incendiary Ammo beforehand. There's few surprises
     beyond, especially if one did similar excursions in ME1, but one curveball is
     the final stretch: a machine basically produces infinite husks to deal with!
     Destroying the machine is as simple as detonating the two bombs alongside it,
     beckoning a cave-in to do the dirty work. Items found in this map:
    
     - 640 Iridium
     - 600 Iridium
     - 560 Iridium
     - Locker (1050c)
     - 400 Iridium
     - Med Kit
     - Power Cells (x2)
     - Locker (450c) -- hard to bypass without using some kind of cloaking
    
     Husks are one of the easiest targets to get the "Brawler" achievement on,
     since meleeing one makes it reel for a moment, not to mention they're rather
     easy to mow down up-close. Having infinite numbers of 'em make this a prime
     area to get "Brawler" if not done already.

     As the description says, Eclipse mercs are sensed in the area so it's best to
     turn on (Squad) Incendiary Ammo to show 'em who's boss. Once the first pack
     of troopers/vanguards is fried, operate the holding cell controls to gain
     access to the adjacent corridor. The 2nd pack (same mix) shows up immediately
     after bypassing, so make sure to operate the controls from a secure position!
     Items to get before entering the holding cell:
    
     - Wall Safe (3750c)

     At the end, inspecting a computer has the encrypted intel gathered, which can
     adversely affect Cerberus if publicly distributed. Should Shepard give the
     employer the shaft or take one for the team and shelve it? Hmm... Options are
     to give it to Cerberus, the Alliance, or for oneself -- no para/gadeness here,
     but who knows...it may affect something in Mass Effect 3...
    
    N7: IMMINENT SHIP CRASH

     Location: Pylos Nebula -> Nariph -> MSV Broken Arrow
     Unlock -: Buy star chart for nebula at Barlia Frontiers in Nos Astra (Ilium)
     Reward -: 7500c, 150 EXP
    
     As the ship's description says, there's geth signatures onboard so it's best
     to bring teammates to exploit that -- AI hackers, Disruptor Ammo, etc. EDI'll
     post a 6:00 timer, which is the amount of time left until the ship's orbit
     decays and flings it into Jonus' largest colony, Fargone. [Fargone = Far Gone?
     Tragic irony!]
    
     After defeating the first pack, turn on the computer nearby to learn the
     engines are disabled. Down the corridor's the engine room where there's two
     power couplings to start. Turning either takes a few moments, and while doing
     the fingerwork, geth can interrupt and force a restart...basically, take out
     the geth first! To access the 2nd, use the pipes parallel to the broken path.
     [Tactical cloaking can make this part rather easy.] When both're turned on,
     restart the engines at the top of the catwalk.
    
    N7: ANOMALOUS WEATHER DETECTED
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     Unlock -: Scan for anomaly
     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP, Damage Protection upgrade
    
     Geth are detected before even going down, so bring allies with synthetic-
     -oriented abilities, like AI hacking and (Squad) Disruptor Ammo. The weather
     is expectedly poor here, basically a geth-made sandstorm, and the objective's
     to destroy the machine producing all this ruckus. The geth mix is pretty
     generic -- troopers, a few rocket-users, a hunter here and there -- and it's
     best for the allies if they locate the cliff path (by shuttle) to avoid taking
     the low ground. There's really only two battles in this entire place, so it
     leaves plenty of time to find the multiple Palladium boxes hidden around.

     Unlock -: Scan for anomaly
     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP
    
     The intro should tell what kind of hostilities to expect: Blue Suns! Yes,
     the dig site is going to be crawling with these organics, so flip Incendiary
     Ammo on for the ride. There's only 4 fights to deal with here, so nothing too
     amazing. Make sure to read the PDA towards the end to get the "MSV Strontium
     Mule" sidequest. Looking at the Prothean log ends the mission. Items found
     in this level:

     Unlock -: Complete "N7: Blood Pack Communications Relay" quest
     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP, Heavy Weapons Upgrade
    
     A follow-up to a previous mission, this one puts Shepard's team against the
     rest of the Blood Pack hiding out in a scenic gorge. [Organics are pervious
     to Incinerate/Inferno Grenade/Incendiary Ammo, like usual.] The shuttle puts
     everyone at the highest point in this place; unfortunately, it can't be used
     as a sniper nest...enemies haven't appeared yet!
    
     The 1st battle is on a pit's rim, with the typical Blood Pack mix (mostly
     vorcha) shooting up and across at everyone. Boxes provide ample cover, though.
     Battle #2 is on a precipice's natural bridge, with promontories providing the
     shelter from clifftop heavies (hint: shoot explosive canister). Past a door,
     the final battle with the site foreman Kalusk and his vorcha henchmen takes
     place. There's plenty of explosive canisters here to inflict extra damage,
     especially helpful for that krogan. Enemies may hide most of the time so be
     prepared to flank.
    
     When everything's done, blow up the machines by detonating the containment
     cells around their base. Bada-bing, bada-BOOM! The evacuation order's given,
     but instead of an awesome chase back to the shuttle, just leave the caves to
     get the all-clear. Items found in this map:

     Location: Titan Nebula -> Haskins -> Capek
     Unlock -: Complete "N7: Abandoned Research Station" quest
     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP
    
     As the description says, the mechs inside are quarantined and virus-infected,
     so bringing people with (Squad) Disruptor Ammo and AI Hacking (the latter
     especially on higher difficulties) will be wise. 
    
     A typical mech mix (Loki bipeds/Fenris dogs) appear when the front door's
     approached, and in the large warehouse adjacent, it continues. Down on the
     landing with the crates, play it safe when moving in close quarters -- there's
     a crapload of Loki mechs (40+?) and not much wiggle room. Allies may turn on
     their own ammo powers so if they're squad-affecting, prepare to override 'em
     with Disruptor Ammo again. No saving during this portion either, making it
     quite an annoyance on higher difficulties.
    
     Once through the ocean of crates, one can finally reach the control room and
     initiate production shutdown. Good riddance... [Items on this level:]

     Location: Omega Nebula -> Arinlarkin -> MSV Strontium Mule
     Unlock -: View datapad during "N7: Archeological Dig Site"
     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP
    
     The objective here is to defeat the Blue Suns, which, to reiterate, is an
     organic-oriented mix of batarians and turians. (Squad) Incendiary Ammo,
     Inferno Grenade, and similar fiery attacks are best used here.
    
     Once in the cargo bay, the fun starts -- enemies pour from the far door, and
     the distance is good enough that sniping is a main draw (particularly for
     heavies). Beyond, in the rampway, scoot to cover quickly one floor up because
     it's completely barren besides a few crates! Hack the high-up console to
     release security lockdown, giving access to the three exits. Two lead to an
     anteroom (mechanic bay, medical chamber) and lead upstairs; but before that,
     take the middle to the engine area and fight off the mercs there. A console
     here says the FTL drive's inoperative...ruh roh.
    
     Return to the previous room and take a side-ramp upstairs, where the two
     final corridors are. Approach the bridge to hear Vorhess bark his feeble
     boasts, then duck right and hack the bridge security console. [NOTE: There
     may be a glitch where if y'exit the hacking screen, it's not possible to
     retry; this may be a problem for those with autosave turned off.] This lets
     one storm the bridge, taking down Vorhess and his lackeys. There's cover
     inside but it's not a bad idea to stay in the hallway and wait for anyone
     to rush out -- bottleneck'd!
    
     When everyone's dead, read the ship's main log to get the authorization code
     for their "special cargo." There'll be hostiles on the way back, mostly just
     normal mercs and a few Fenris dogs. Sargeant Boortis will join the fight at
     the ramp crossroads, another triple-healthbar guy who shouldn't pose much
     trouble. [Snipe the heavies to make things easier.] With that done, go to
     the previously-locked door -- the corridor opposite the bridge's -- and get
     the payload. [Items found on this mission:]

     Location: Sigurd's Cradle -> Skepsis -> Franklin
     Unlock -: Complete "N7: MSV Strontium Mule" quest
     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP
    
     A rather fun mission. Batarians have hijacked a station and launched two
     javelin missiles at a human colony. There is no possibility of survival if
     they hit! EDI transmits a 5:00 countdown to clear out the hostiles, who, of
     course, are organic and susceptible to fire-type attacks. Most of the foes
     (who use assault rifles primarily) are located in the missile loading bay,
     the largest chamber in the area. Attacking-by-numbers, really, although by
     flanking and getting the higher ground, it's easier to suss out kills since
     it makes their cover ineffectual.
    
     Bypassing the lower door leads to the killswitch console, guarded by a single
     batarian commando (2 healthbars). When inspected, it turns out only one of
     the missiles can be stopped! The question then becomes to save the spaceport,
     allowing survivors to leave to other worlds, or to save the colony, which is
     then isolated without a spaceport. Decisions, decisions! Really, a spaceport
     without defenses to stop a missile doesn't deserve to exist! Rawr-har-har...

     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP
    
     The Blue Suns have been falsifying a distress signal to lure in ships, and
     it must end now! Blue Suns are an organic mix of troopers, heavies, and a
     few commanders with an extra layer of shielding -- either way, Incendiary
     Ammo and other fiery attacks work well here.
    
     Fights take place at (1) the landing zone (2) the interior mezzanine (3) the
     ground-floor dining hall (4) crate storage bay. For the 4th battle, Captain
     Noram sics two Ymir mechs on the team, so keep away from explosive crates
     and Overload/Disruptor Ammo 'em to death. The captain and a few cronies come
     out of hiding when their mechs fail. When everything's over, hack the final
     door and overload the mainframe...kaboom! [Items in this level:]

     Unlock -: Inspect datapad at merc base (during Archangel recruitment quest)
     Reward -: 40 EXP
    
     During Shepard's attempt to sabotage the gangs' attack on Archangel, s/he
     can stumble across a datapad in the 1st lounge. This info can be given to
     Aria next time she's visited for a reward.

     Location: Afterlife Club
     Unlock -: Talk to bartender in lower area
     Reward -: 40 EXP
    
     At the club, ordering a drink from the barkeep has an odd consequence: almost
     dying! Seems that goofball slipped Shep something...and he must pay!
    
     [+2P] Thanks for the advice.
     [+2R] That bartender will pay!
    
     Return to the club and confront the barkeep. Shepard can make the barkeep
     leave by exposing his actions, or use para/gade options to either rile the
     crowd or force the idiot to drink his own toxic concoction. Either way, after
     the event, a salarian bartender replaces him and serves poison-free beverages.
    
     [+5P] [Incite the crowd]
     [+5R] [Make him drink it]
     [+2P] You're not worth the trouble.
    
    OMEGA: PACKAGES FOR ISH
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Location: Hub corridor past docking area (later in game)
     Unlock -: Talk to Ish
     Reward -: 4500c (packages delivered) / 3375c (Ish flees Omega)
    
     In the main walkway of Omega, which leads north to Afterlife (upper) and
     east to the markets/residential neighborhood, there's a salarian duo who'll
     call out to Shepard when passed by. Our protagonist is propositioned to help
     "change the face of Omega" by collecting two packages for the businessman.
     Agreeing on the spot sets things in motion, although declining allows for a
     mind change later.
    
     Either way, one package is on Ilium, on a couch in the Eternity Bar; the 2nd
     is in the Citadel, outside of the Saronis Applications shop on Zakera Level
     26. With them in hand, return to Omega and chit-chat with Ish.
    
     [+5R] The package from Ilium
     [+5R] The package from the Citadel
    
     Giving over the packages gives renegade points, while "the stolen data" can
     lead to a paragon-exclusive option to dissuade Ish from future efforts of
     the sort.
    
     NOTE: Resolving the mission in a paragon way gives a glitch where the journal
           doesn't update, essentially listing the mission as incomplete from then
           on.
    
    OMEGA: THE PATRIARCH
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Location: Afterlife (upper)
     Unlock -: Talk to Grizz (same location) after recruiting Garrus or Mordin
     Reward -: 40 EXP, 3000c
    
     Grizz, a turian standing on the stairs to Aria's sofa, relays Aria's wishes
     to have Shepard help protect The Patriarch, one of her deadliest enemies she
     kept around as a trophy. He's located in a side-room down in the lower part
     of the club.
    
     [+2P] You have to go, Patriarch.
     [+2P] Time to go, Patriarch.
     [+5R] What kind of krogan are you?
    
     Choosing the renegade option makes Patriarch run off to fight the assassins
     himself and, naturally, end up dying in the process. The paragon option is
     to be the krogan's krantt and eliminate the assassins oneself. Visit the
     alley outside lower Afterlife (not the one connecting the two clubs) to find
     the wannabes.
    
     [+2P] [Attack them.]
    
     Informing patriarch makes the last step...
    
     [+2P] Goodbye.
     [+2R] Don't waste this.
     [+5P] [Automatically gotten for killing assassins oneself]
    
     ...before talking with Aria.
    
     [+2P] He didn't live like a krogan. -.- If Patriarch perished.
     [+2R] I did what was right. ---------'
     [+2P] No thanks.
     [+2R] Just like that.
    
     If the "Omega: Archangel: Datapad Recovered" sidequest was done prior to
     this one, Aria offers coordinates to a hidden cache on an uncharted world.
     This is the alternate way to get the "N7: Eclipse Smuggling Depot" mission
     opened, rather than just finding it through happenstance during scanning.
    
    OMEGA: THE PROFESSOR: MISSING ASSISTANT
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Location: Quarantine Zone (during Mordin's recruitment)
     Unlock -: Find assistant
     Reward -: 40 EXP
    
     After leaving Mordin's clinic, a few battles later, there'll be a corridor
     with a door on each side; take the "left" of the two to find the assistant,
     Daniel, captured by some batarians. Shepard can use para/gade-specific
     answers to save him, although picking default ones just escalates things 'til
     they kill him.
     
     [+5P] Nobody needs to die.
     [+5R] Kill him, and you're next.
     [+2P] Everyone stay calm.
     [+5R] [Signal henchmen.]
    
     Either way, Shepard conveys what occured back to Mordin at recruitment's end.
    
    OMEGA: STRUGGLING QUARIAN
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Location: Kenn's Salvage
     Unlock -: Talk to Kenn
     Reward -: 40 EXP
    
     Kenn is a quarian on pilgrimage, scraping by with his salvaged tech business.
     Harriot, another storeowner, is forcing him to sell high to keep his own biz
     booming. The quest starts when Shepard talks to him.
    
     [+5P] Maybe we can cut a deal.
     [+5R] Your prices are insulting.
    
     The quest can be resolved by giving the quarian 1000c to pay his way off
     Omega; or, by inquiring about Harriot, Shepard can go have a talk with the
     hanar, convincing him to back off or buy out Kenn's store. [These require
     para/gade.]
    
     [+5P] Leave the quarian alone.
     [+5R] Just shut the quarian down.
    
     Harriot only offers a discount if he's talked to about the quarian (no matter
     the outcome), and this is the only way to get a discount there, so don't pass
     it up!

     Reward -: 2500c, 125 EXP
    
     Lattesh' surface is ridiculously cold and as EDI says, prolonged exposure'll
     degrade Hammerhead's engine performance. Basically, don't just skim along
     the snowbanks lazily -- scanning the nodes quickly to give the engines a bit
     more heat. [Why does it work like this? Maybe a wizard did it.] There's 10
     nodes to scan total, the path is linear, and surpringly, there's no geth to
     incur. Bundle up! [5000 Palladium found total from scanning]

    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Location: Hades Nexus -> Hoplos -> Kopis
     Unlock -: Finish "Volcano Station" (?) or do 3 Firewalker missions (?)
     Reward -: 3750c, 125 EXP
    
     At the Prothean site, a giant forcefield protects the valuables so it's now
     Shepard's task to disable the (4) generators blocking the way forward. And,
     of course, there's a resistance: in this case, rocket drones. They'll pop up
     from the land when Hammerhead's in a close proximity and are much easier to
     eliminate than geth; try the rise-n-shoot method to take 'em out. The cliffs
     are full of random dig sites to get free elements, too.
    
     When the forcefield's removed, enter the dig site on foot...
    
     - Corpse (3750c)
     - Console (Biotic Damage upgrade)
     - 1500 Element Zero (total)

     ends up being displayed back in Shepard's cabin. Does it do anything besides
     look shiny? Nope...but it's still pretty cool.

     Unlock -: Obtain Firewalker DLC, then visit Zeona (scan for anomaly)
     Reward -: 7500c, 125 EXP 
    
     The MSV Rosalie was carrying some valuable cargo, the Hammerhead project, and
     things seem to have gone terribly wrong...if it wasn't already obvious from
     the ship's wreckage! This DLC is a 5-part event, and this is just the first
     step of the series.
    
     Locate the cargo container at the wreckage site, bypass it, and obtain the
     Hammerhead vehicle. L-trigger initiates turbo, A-button jumps, and L-trigger
     fires main cannon. When research -- which is shown at the base of those giant
     blue light pillars -- is found, hold Y-button to obtain the suckers. The ship
     is actually quite fragile, and can't fly for very long, so avoid falling in
     lava! To navigate the map, climb to highpoints, float across the canyons, and
     keep climbing. The terrain makes it quite obvious which way to go, usually.

     Unlock -: Obtain Firewalker DLC & complete "Rosalie Lost" to unlock
     Reward -: 1250c, 125 EXP
    
     Like previous missions, this one has the team seeking out (5) artifacts to
     scan with Y-button; but unlike those same missions, these have enemies to
     defeat first! Since the Hammerhead is quite fragile if enemies gang up on it,
     the rule of thumb is to stay mobile at medium range and use obstacles as
     shields. The cannon's projectile has a slight homing function, but it won't
     excuse sloppy aiming. Either way, small enemies can die if run over at high
     speeds, and plopping down on a geth colossus makes it inoperable for a short
     period, letting the pilot get in potshots. [The safest way it to stay mobile
     at medium range, circling the target while firing the cannon.] Enemies who
     fall in the water also perish instantly.
    
     There's no saving during this mission so one death means everything's done
     over...play it safe. Protip: snipe the rocket drones at the end with the
     cannon because the hit detection/auto-aim pre-5th artifact blows. And, at the
     5th artifact, part of the platform's periphery is slanted and can provide
     cover from the ridiculous concentrated fire the two colossi cause.

     Reward -: 1250c, 125 EXP
    
     Upon landing planetside, EDI notifies the team that mapping technology has
     been rendered inoperable by the climate (or something), so it's manual from
     here on. The main portion of this level is the volcanic canyon which has a
     lot of side ledges and promotories to leapfrog on. Pickup locations are just
     yellow circles on the ground, and due to the depth of this canyon, it's best
     to do whatever's nearby, then go all the way to the bottom's lavafront, and
     work back up again to get the rest. There's 10 places to scan total.
    
     At the end of the Hammerhead portion, press B-button to exit and go into the
     volcanic station. There's some things to find...
    
     - Wall Safe (250c)
     - Locker (125c)
     - 1500 Iridium
    
     ...but the real thing to do is activate the sensors. Surprise surprise, this
     causes volcanic instability! Take the longcut to the Hammerhead and, once
     outside, take the high path out of this joint. There's 1 scanpoint en route,
     making a grand total of 5000 Iridium obtained during this mission.

     Location: Near Fortack's lab
     Unlock -: Talk to mechanic about plight -or- find manifold first
     Reward -: 40 EXP
     
     When the krogan homeworld is first visited, a mechanic bemoans the fact he's
     got no combustion manifold for the vehicle he's fixing up. During Mordin's
     loyalty mission, before entering the Weyrloc base, a manifold can be found
     on a pile of junk. Simply return it to the krogan to complete the sucker.
    
    TUCHANKA: KILLING PYJAKS
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Location: Ratch's Wares
     Unlock -: Talk to Ratch about pyjaks
     Reward -: 40 EXP, Pyjak Meat available for purchase
    
     The friendly krogan shopkeep talks about how pyjaks -- those silvery monkey-
     -like creatures -- steal anything that isn't rooted down. This lets Shepard
     try his/her hand at the defense turret minigame by the chief scout. Here,
     the object is to kill pyjaks with explosions without letting them into the
     camp (basically just lead your target; there's lots of leeway). Complete 3
     waves successfully, then return to Ratch to complete the mission and get a
     discount on his stuff.
    
    TUCHANKA: OLD BLOOD: MISSING SCOUT
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Location: Weyrloc Base (during Mordin's loyalty mission)
     Unlock -: Find scout
     Reward -: 40 EXP
    
     During the romp in Weyrloc's illicit clinic, the team can find the chief
     scout's...uh, scout, in a holding cell. 
    
     [+2P] We were looking for you.
     [+2P] Mordin can help.
     [+2R] Just sit tight.
     [+2P] Can you get out?
     [+2R] I dealt with them.
     [+2P] I want to help.
     [+2P] Stay here. I'm trying to help!
     [+2R] [Lie] Relax. It's okay.
     [+5R] Forget it. I'm leaving.
     [+5P] It doesn't help your clan.
     [+5R] I see what's really going on.
    
     Treating the situation tenderly can result in para/gade points allowing Shep
     to goad the scout into returning to camp, while being hostile makes the
     drug-addled krogan rush to his demise. Talk with the chief back at base to
     finish the quest.

     of worst to best. [DLC is exempt from this.]

     [Q] - What's up with that star behind the Illusive Man?
     [A] - It represents the inner turmoil of Shepard's character -- the blueness
           represents paragon, redness represents renegade. It changes throughout
           the game depending on actions taken (if it wasn't obvious already).
    
     [Q] - [Suicide mission:] I hit the heat exchanger but the bar keeps rising!
     [A] - This happens when an H.E. is accidentally skipped. The only option is
           to go back to said H.E. and relieve the heat before the tech specialist
           is toasted.
    
     [Q] - I can't download the Sentry Interface from Dr. Pepper's website!
     [A] - As part of their ME2 promotion (which ends 12/31/10), there are three
           DLC equipment pieces to get: Umbra Visor, Recon Hood, Sentry Interface.
           However, the SI seems to have been removed from the options for some
           reason, at least at the time this author's writing. Here's how to get
           it:
    
           1) Put in your code normally
           2) Put in your details (they're not checked, so they don't matter)
           3) Navigate to the ME2 page where it lists the Umbra Visor & Recon Hood
           4) Right-click on "Claim This Prize" and copy the link it leads to
           5) Paste the URL into the browser
           6) Find the part that says "goodie=umbra_visor" or "goodie=recon_hood"
           7) Change the above portion to "goodie=sentry_interface"
           8) Submit!
    
           NOTE: The Sentry Interface URL-switching trick has been removed, so it
                 can't be gotten anymore, seemingly.
