Glitches

  • Glitch: Use Mako on Therum Mini-Boss Fight

    It is possible to take the Mako through the gap in between the two rocks, where you are supposed to get out and travel on foot. Drive in to the gap, then from inside the gap drive up the left rock, until you are completely on your side, wedged between both rocks. Slowly inch forward and use boosts to slide through the gap.

    The geth and the walkers (the mini boss fight after the video) will not attack the Mako, and they die after only a couple of cannon shots.

  • Have ANY character equip ANY armor even without training!!!

    Potential of Glitch: You could have Kaiden (normaly a light armor only character) Wearing Krogan Heavy Armor!!!! Preparation: 1) First, you have to have the armor you want to equip in your inventory... 2) Then make sure that you have more armor upgrades(ex: Combat Exoskeleton IX) than armors. 3) Count, from the bottom of the armor list, up until you have highlighted the armor you want to equip. Remember that number. 4) Press " X " to go to the upgrades then.... Here is where the glitch is performed... 5) This part must be executed very fast, almost instantly, but not quite... Press and HOLD " Y " then hit " A " in that order. DO NOT press them simultaneously. Normally this would turn the upgrade into Omni-Gel, but since you HELD DOWN THE " Y " BUTTON, and tapped " A " very quickly... the game glitches!! 6) If done correctly... you will here the salvage sound, then a Prompt Screen pops up asking "Are sure you want to reduce to Omni-Gel..." Press " B " so you DO NOT salvage your upgrade. 7) You should see a lot of armor upgrades with duplicated info. (info located just to the left of item) 8) Once again go to the bottom and count up to the number you found earlier... 9) Press " A " to equip and enjoy!!!!!
