    =============
    Introduction                                                           11intr
    =============
    
    Mass Effect 2 is the second in a trilogy of games created by BioWare, award-
    winning developer of such RPGs as "Knights of the Old Republic" and "Baldur's 
    Gate."  It takes place roughly two years after the events of Mass Effect 1, 
    in which Commander Shepard thwarted an attack aimed at wiping out all 
    galactic civilization.
    
    Mass Effect 2 was released for the Xbox 360 and PC in North America on 
    January 26, 2010, and for the PlayStation 3 on January 18, 2011.
    
    
    ===========
    Background                                                             12back
    ===========
    
    In 2148 AD, humanity discovered a small cache of highly advanced alien 
    technology buried deep beneath the surface of Mars.  The creators of this 
    technology--known as the Protheans--went extinct nearly 50,000 years ago, 
    leaving little evidence of their existence behind.  The discovery of this 
    technology led humans to develop faster-than-light travel, allowing rapid 
    expansion throughout the solar system.
    
    Within a year humanity uncovered another piece of Prothean technology, a 
    dormant mass relay that had been encased in the ice-dwarf Charon.  Once 
    activated, this relay allowed instantaneous travel across thousands of light 
    years to other mass relays in different parts of the galaxy.  Humanity 
    immediately began using this technology to colonize far-off star systems.  
    This same year, the Systems Alliance was formed by the largest governments on 
    Earth to serve as the spearhead of humanity's expansion.
    
    In 2157, the Alliance made first contact with an alien species known as the 
    turians.  This resulted in the First Contact War, as the next several months 
    saw skirmishes between the turians and Earth's Systems Alliance fleets.  In 
    the largest battle of the war, the turians crushed the garrison on the human 
    colony of Shanxi, before ultimately being driven off by the Alliance Second 
    Fleet.  This conflict drew the attention of the Citadel Council, a governing 
    body that maintained peace and stability throughout much of the galaxy.  They 
    intervened in the conflict and brokered a peace agreement between humans and 
    turians.
    
    By 2183 humanity was still struggling to find its place in the galactic 
    community, but this began to change when Commander Shepard was named the 
    first human Spectre by the Citadel Council.  Elite operatives, the Spectres 
    are charged with maintaining peace and galactic stability--at any cost.  
    Shepard thwarted an attack on the Citadel--the political and economic heart 
    of the civilized galactic community--orchestrated by a race of sentient 
    machines known as the Reapers, who are bent on the extermination of all 
    intelligent life in the galaxy.
    
    However, two years have now passed since the victory at the Citadel, and 
    politicians have swept the ever-present threat of galactic extinction under 
    the rug.  Worse yet, tens of thousands have gone missing from human colonies 
    across the galaxy.  It is up to Commander Shepard to uncover the nature of 
    these disappearances, and put a stop to them, no matter the cost...

    Game Basics                                                            13game
    ============
    
    CHARACTER CREATION                                                     13acha
    ------------------
    
    Character creation takes place after the first few minutes of the game, when 
    some of the action has died down.  To start a game, select "New Game" from 
    the main menu, and then choose whether your character will be male or female.
    
    You can also import a character from a completed game of Mass Effect 1.  
    Imported characters will retain up to 190 Paragon and Renegade points, but 
    lose all the equipment and abilities from the first game.  Most 
    significantly, the imported save file contains information on almost every 
    interaction the character had in ME1, and this information carries over into 
    Mass Effect 2.  For example, if a character died in the first game, they will 
    still be dead when you play ME2.
    
    If you do not have a Mass Effect 1 save file, or wish to start a game without 
    one, a set of "canon" decisions will be made for your Shepard based on what 
    the game developers thought were the most interesting choices in the first 
    game.
    
    When you reach the character creation screen, you will first be asked to give 
    your character a name.  If you imported a Mass Effect 1 character, that 
    character's first name will carry over to Mass Effect 2.  The default male 
    name is "John," and the default female name is "Jane."  For the purposes of 
    in-game dialog and continuity, the last name cannot be changed.
    
    Next you can customize your character's appearance.  You can choose to use 
    the default version of Commander Shepard, accept the version imported from 
    Mass Effect 1, or adjust any aspect of your character's face to your liking.  
    Use the sliders in each section to manipulate a range of facial details.  
    Female characters have the additional option of customizing makeup.  
    
    New to Mass Effect 2 is the alphanumeric code at the bottom of this screen.  
    You can copy this code and share it with others, allowing them to reproduce 
    your character's appearance exactly, or you can input the code from another 
    player's character to use their customized appearance.
    
    After customizing your character's face, you must select your class from the 
    six types available to you.  This is a very important selection, as it 
    determines what weapons and abilities you will have access to.
    
    There are three primary classes in Mass Effect 2: Soldiers, engineers, and 
    adepts.  Soldiers are combat specialists: They have access to more weapons 
    than any other class, and have all basic ammo types at their disposal. 
    Engineers are tech experts, specializing in taking down synthetic enemies and 
    disabling shields.  Adepts are biotic characters that can forcefully move 
    enemies and objects, and are best at immobilizing their foes and controlling 
    crowds.
    
    The other three classes are hybrids of the first three.  The infiltrator 
    combines the soldier and engineer, the vanguard combines the soldier and 
    adept, and the sentinel combines the engineer and adept.  Vanguards have 
    access to shotguns, but do not have the range of biotic abilities open to 
    adepts.  Similarly, infiltrators gain sniper rifles, but lack the range of 
    debuffs possessed by engineers.  The most supporting class is the sentinel, 
    which offers a mix of tech and biotic powers.
    
    Also note that in Mass Effect 2, each class has its own unique powers 
    unavailable to any other class:
    
        The SOLDIER plays most like a traditional third-person shooter.  Combat 
        is focused on using the right weapon and ammo type for a given situation.  
        Soldiers also have more health than any other class.
    
            Unique Powers: 
              Adrenaline Rush
                 -> Slow down time to line up the perfect shot.
              Concussive Shot
                 -> Fire a high-powered round that can knock down targets.
    
    
        The INFILTRATOR is a stealth-based class.  Combat is focused on using the 
        sniper rifle to deal precise damage from long range, and using the 
        tactical cloak to escape dangerous situations.
    
            Unique Powers: 
              Tactical Cloak
                 -> Become invisible to enemies for a few seconds.
    
    
        Playing a VANGUARD is about getting up close and personal with your 
        target.  The charge ability lets you close distances in an instant, which 
        is perfect in combination with the shotgun.  You can also use charge to 
        escape combat if things get too dangerous.
    
            Unique Powers: 
              Charge
                 -> Biotic charge at a target, delivering massive damage.
    
    
        The SENTINEL has a more diverse range of powers than any other class.  
        Tech armor gives sentinels the best shields of any class, and their 
        biotic and tech powers make them well suited for handling a wide variety 
        of enemy types.
    
            Unique Powers: 
              Tech Armor
                 -> Armor that boosts shields and damages enemies when destroyed.
    
    
        The ADEPT is a biotic specialist, with the greatest variety of biotic 
        attacks.  Biotics are tremendously useful in combat against minions, but 
        you will need to rely more on your squad when you encounter enemies with 
        shields or armor.
    
            Unique Powers: 
              Singularity
                 -> Forms a mass effect field that pulls enemies into it.
    
    
        The ENGINEER is designed to take on synthetic enemies.  As an engineer 
        you can overload enemy shields, hack synthetics to make them fight for 
        you, or deploy a combat drone to distract and stun them.
    
            Unique Powers: 
              Combat Drone
                 -> Spawns a drone that draws enemy fire and stuns targets.
    
    
    After selecting a combat class, the next step is to determine the history and 
    personality of your character.  The first step is to select your pre-service 
    history.  This dictates your character's background before joining the 
    Alliance military.  Next you select your psychological profile.  This 
    determines the defining moment in your Alliance career prior to the events of 
    Mass Effect 1.  Players importing a character from Mass Effect 1 will have 
    this information imported along with their character.
    
    On the last page, you will get a summary or your selections.  When you are 
    satisfied with your character's traits and appearance, select "Accept" to 
    continue the game.  Note that once you have completed one playthrough of Mass 
    Effect 2 you can begin a new game with this character as well.  Additionally, 
    if you have unlocked any weapons or powers through achievements, you must 
    select one as a bonus talent for your new character.
    
    
    INTRODUCTION TO RPGS                                                   13bint
    -------------------- 
    
    Mass Effect 2 is an Action Role-Playing Video Game (or RPG), meaning you 
    assume the role of a fictional character and control his or her actions in a 
    way that affects the game and other characters.  As your progress through the 
    game you will earn "experience points" (or XP) for your actions.  You can 
    gain these points by completing missions, and their accumulation allows your 
    character to "level up," thereby increasing certain characteristics such as 
    health.  In Mass Effect 2 you are granted "talent points" after each level 
    up, which go into upgrading and improving your character's ability with 
    certain skills.  Many of these components are explained in more detail later.
    
    
    CONVERSATIONS                                                          13ccon
    -------------
    
    A significant amount of gameplay in Mass Effect 2 is devoted to conversations 
    with other characters.  This is done through the "conversation wheel" that 
    appears near the bottom of the screen whenever your character has the 
    opportunity to say something.  All dialog in the game is fully voiced, 
    including that of Commander Shepard.  Rather than choosing the exact words 
    your character will say however, Mass Effect 2 shows you several options on 
    the wheel corresponding to general feelings, questions, or emotions.  These 
    short phrases are then turned into full lines of dialog that are spoken by 
    your character.
    
    To select a dialog response on the Xbox 360, hold the left analog stick in 
    the direction of the choice you wish to select, and then press the A button.  
    You can also press the X button instead, which will begin your character's 
    line immediately, stepping on the lines of any character who is speaking at 
    the time.  X is also used to skip dialog if you wish to do so.  On the PC you 
    use the mouse to select dialog options, and the Spacebar to skip dialog.
    
    The dialog wheel itself is divided into six sectors.  Choices on the wheel's 
    left side usually give you more information about a given topic, while 
    choices on the right tend to bring the conversation closer to its conclusion.  
    Additionally, the top of the wheel tends to correspond to the Paragon path, 
    where your character makes cooperative and unselfish decisions.  The bottom 
    of the wheel typically corresponds to the Renegade path, where your character 
    makes decisions that are more selfish and impatient.  This is not always the 
    case, but it is a good general guide to framing your responses during a 
    conversation, should you wish to play as a virtuous (or malevolent) 
    character.
    
    Sometimes you will see the option on the middle left to "Investigate."  
    Selecting this option brings up more choices for topics of conversation, and 
    the orientation of these choices usually does not correspond to the Paragon / 
    Renegade paths described above.
    
    Making decisions on either the Renegade or Paragon path will accrue points 
    that appear as status bars on the "Squad" screen in the pause menu.  
    Depending on these Paragon and Renegade meters, you will sometimes have the 
    option during conversations to persuade characters to achieve a nonviolent 
    outcome or to give you additional money or information.  These choices appear 
    in the upper and lower left quadrants as blue and red dialog choices 
    respectively.  If you lack sufficient points in these areas, these choices 
    will be grayed out, and you will not have the option of using them.
    
    Advanced players should note that because persuasive options are no longer 
    tied to the Charm and Intimidate talents from Mass Effect 1, you can no 
    longer spend talent points to increase your character's persuasive abilities.  
    Instead, persuasion checks are made based on your Paragon or Renegade score, 
    divided by the total potential for Paragon or Renegade points you have 
    encountered at that particular point in the game.  In practice, this means 
    that dividing your character's personality (taking some Paragon actions and 
    some Renegade actions) will make persuading other characters more difficult 
    as the game progresses.  If you wish to avoid this side effect of the game's 
    programming, you might want to commit yourself to taking only Paragon or 
    Renegade actions.
    
    New to Mass Effect 2 is the "interrupt system."  At certain times during 
    conversations, a red or blue symbol will appear in the lower left or right 
    corner of the screen.  While it is present, you can press the appropriate 
    button to interrupt the conversation and perform a certain action.  The left 
    trigger (right mouse button on the PC) will perform a Paragon action, while 
    the right trigger (left mouse button on the PC) will perform a Renegade 
    action.  However, do note that doing these actions is entirely optional.
    
    
    THE MISSION COMPUTER                                                   13dmis
    --------------------
    
    By pressing the Start Button (or Esc on the PC) you can enter the Mission 
    Computer menu.  You access each part of the menu in a similar way to 
    selecting dialog choices during a conversation.
    
        The Mission Computer allows you access to game details for:
    
            Codex:     A small encyclopedia of the Mass Effect universe.  You 
                       begin the game with many of the codex entries from Mass 
                       Effect 1.  As you play and gain new information the codex 
                       will populate itself with new articles concerning the 
                       planets, civilizations, and technologies you come across.  
                       The primary codex contains essential information 
                       pertaining to the species you encounter, the weapons you 
                       use, and locations you visit.  The secondary codex 
                       contains a greater wealth of more detailed information, 
                       but is less important to understanding the universe.
    
            Exit Game: Quits the game and returns to the desktop. (PC only)
    
            Journal:   View your current missions and assignments.  Missions are 
                       More important to the completion of the game.  Assignments 
                       are optional, but typically grant experience points and 
                       other rewards.  Missions will generally appear in your 
                       journal as the game progresses, but assignments can be 
                       found through messages at your private terminal, accessing 
                       certain items while on missions, or by scanning uncharted 
                       worlds with the Normandy.
    
            Load:      Load previously saved games.
    
            Main Menu: Exit the game and return to the main menu.
    
            Map:       Shows a two dimensional overview of your current area.  It 
                       indicates the position of your character as well as known 
                       points of interest.  Note that the map is unavailable 
                       outside of certain civilized areas.
    
            Options:   Change your settings for gameplay, graphics, sound, and 
                       other options.  Notably, you can change the gameplay 
                       difficulty, and toggle visual effects like film grain and 
                       motion blur.
    
            Save:      Allows you to save your current progress through the game.  
                       You cannot save in certain situations, such as during 
                       combat and while riding in elevators.
    
            Squad:     The squad screen is where you view and upgrade powers for 
                       you and your squad members.  As you level up, you will be 
                       allocated talent points, which you must spend using the 
                       squad screen to upgrade your character's abilities in 
                       combat.  While on a mission, this screen will show only 
                       Shepard and the team members you have with you, but on the 
                       Normandy you can use this screen to upgrade everyone's 
                       abilities.  You can also use the options menu to have the 
                       game auto-level each character for you.
    
    
    COMBAT                                                                 13ecom

    The combat in Mass Effect 2 plays very much like a third-person shooter.  You 
    can draw your weapon by pressing the X button or either of the triggers 
    (mouse buttons on the PC), and can holster it by pressing the Back button (H 
    on the PC).
    
    Drawing your weapon enters combat mode, showing a reticule on-screen to 
    indicate where your weapon is aimed.  It also displays the status of each 
    squad member in the lower center of the screen.  Your shields and health are 
    indicated by a semicircle around the portraits of your squad members.  As you 
    take fire, your shields will deplete, followed by your health.  When your 
    health bar reaches zero, you will be killed.
    
    The right analog stick (or mouse on the PC) is used to aim the target 
    reticule.  Holding the left trigger (right mouse button on PC) zooms in for 
    more precise aiming, increasing your character's accuracy.  Squeezing the 
    right trigger (left mouse button on PC) then fires your weapon.  How much 
    damage is dealt from your weapon is determined by your stats and equipment.  
    Each weapon has a certain ammo capacity representing the number of shots that 
    can be fired before the weapon overheats.  When the ammo count (displayed in 
    the lower left corner) reaches zero, you must replace the thermal clip in the 
    weapon by using the X button (R on the PC).  Thermal clips can sometimes be 
    acquired from enemies you have killed: Simply walk over a clip left on the 
    ground to acquire it.
    
    On the Xbox 360 strategic management is accomplished through the use of two 
    combat "wheels."  The first is the "Weapons Wheel" which is accessed by 
    holding down the left bumper.  This pauses the action, and allows you to 
    select what weapon each member of your squad will use.  The weapons each 
    squad member carries depends upon their class.
     
    The second wheel is the "Power Wheel," which is accessed by holding the right 
    bumper.  This allows you to access the special abilities of all squad members 
    and use them accordingly by aiming using the right analog stick.  Powers can 
    also be mapped to the right and left bumpers by pressing the indicated button 
    while using the wheel.  You can assign one power each to your squad members 
    for use with the directional pad.  Aiming at an enemy and pressing any of the 
    mapped buttons during combat will then cause your character (or your squad 
    member) to use that power on that enemy.
    
    On the PC these wheels are replaced by the Tactical HUD, which is accessed by 
    holding down the Spacebar.  This screen shows the abilities that are 
    available to you and your squad members.  You can use it to select which 
    weapons and powers to use, and it also allows you to set your hotkeys for 
    each ability by dragging them to the quick slots located in the upper left 
    corner.  Here they can be accessed by pressing the appropriate number key, 1 
    through 8.
    
    
    ADVANCING LEVELS                                                       13fadv
    ----------------
    
    As mentioned previously, you gain experience points as you progress through 
    the game.  There is a single pool of experience for the entire squad, 
    allowing you and your companions to advance at a similar rate.  By 
    accumulating enough XP you will level up, granting access to new talent 
    points which you can spend at the Squad screen in the Mission Computer.  New 
    characters start at level 1, and the highest possible level is level 30.
    
    At the Squad screen you can automatically distribute talent points to the 
    selected character, or you can spend them manually on each desired talent.
    
        Players earn talent points for each new level as follows:
    
        Level    Shepard Points per Level    Squad Points per Level
          1-5                2                         2
         6-20                2                     1 every 2
        21-28                1                     1 every 2
        29-30                1                         1
    
    This means that at most Shepard can earn 50 talent points through leveling 
    up, and squad members can earn up to 29 points.
    
    
    THE GALAXY MAP                                                         13ggal
    --------------
    
    To travel around the galaxy using your advanced starship--the Normandy--you 
    must access the galaxy map, located prominently in the center of the command 
    deck.
    
    The highest level of the galaxy map is the Galaxy Level, which shows all 
    available star clusters and nebulae you can visit.  By moving your cursor 
    over a selected cluster you can see its name and view the relay path the 
    Normandy would take to reach that part of the galaxy.  New clusters and 
    systems become available as you complete missions and learn more about the 
    galaxy.  You can also purchase star charts that unlock new areas.
    
    After selecting a location, the Normandy will automatically travel to the 
    primary mass relay in that cluster.  Move your cursor to the border of the 
    system to reach the Cluster Level, which shows all known star systems within 
    that cluster.  To explore a star system you must travel there by manually 
    moving the Normandy icon.  At the Cluster Level this burns fuel, which you 
    can purchase at fuel depots in certain systems.  If you run out of fuel, the 
    Normandy will be towed to the nearest system with a fuel depot--but not for 
    free.
    
    When you have arrived at a new system you will see the System Level, which 
    shows all the planets and celestial objects orbiting the star you have 
    traveled to.  All planets will have a ring showing their orbit.  Move the 
    Normandy icon to navigate to your desired destination.
    
    By selecting a planet, moon, or other object you will zoom in to the 
    Planetary Level.  This shows you a view of the planet's surface along with a 
    synopsis of important planetary features and information.  Many planets are 
    inhospitable to human life, but can still be surveyed for resources you can 
    use to upgrade your ship and other abilities.  Some can also be explored on 
    foot: Simply press the appropriate button to land on a planet.
    
    
    SQUAD MANAGEMENT                                                       13hsqu
    ----------------
    
    Selecting the Squad screen from the Mission Computer menu gives information 
    about your character and the other characters in your squad, including name, 
    class, appearance, level, and use of talent points.
    
    Each time you accumulate enough experience to gain a new level, all 
    characters are granted talent points.  Using the Squad screen, you can assign 
    these points in order to improve the abilities of your characters or unlock 
    new abilities.
    
    Commander Shepard also has Paragon and Renegade meters shown on this screen.  
    These meters track your choices made throughout the game.  Selfless choices 
    result in Paragon points, while ruthless choices result in Renegade points.  
    These points impact your physical appearance, and also determine whether or 
    not you can access certain persuasive dialog choices.
    
    
    LOYALTY                                                                13iloy
    -------
    
    A new feature in Mass Effect 2 is the concept of loyalty.  As the game 
    centers around preparations for a suicide mission, having your team at their 
    best will be vital to your success.  Each team member you recruit will have 
    some personal business they wish to take care of before they depart on this 
    mission, and helping them with these tasks will earn their loyalty.  When you 
    complete a squad member's loyalty mission, you gain a new outfit for that 
    character (which you can toggle on the squad selection screen) and unlock a 
    new power they can use in combat.
    
    However, in some cases it is possible to finish a character's loyalty mission 
    but fail to gain their loyalty.  Be mindful of this, and do your best to 
    honor a character's wishes if you hope to make them loyal.
    
    Loyalty can also be lost as a result of your interactions with people on your 
    ship.  Confrontations between squad members can leave one or the other 
    feeling betrayed if you don't handle the situation diplomatically.

    against forces that would decimate normal soldiers. Additionally, the M-22

    attack. As the lightning-like bolt hits its first target, a sophisticated 
    auto-targeting system paints succeeding targets with the ionization laser, 
    allowing the electricity to take the path of least resistance and arc between 
    them. An entire enemy strike team can be shocked to death with a few pulls of 
    the trigger. Careful aiming will also allow the user to arc shots to nearby 
    explosives as well."

    ============
    Walkthrough                                                            21walk
    ============
    
    Please Note:  This guide does not always provide the fastest possible path 
    through the game.  It is intended for those who want to enjoy the complete 
    Mass Effect 2 experience, and includes some optional items that are not 
    required to complete your adventure.  The walkthrough will also not be 
    entirely spoiler-free: In addition to guiding players through the game, it is 
    intended to provide a reference for players who may be confused about certain 
    plot points.
    
    The Walkthrough is divided into four sections.  The first is the Primary 
    Mission Walkthrough, detailing the main story in which Shepard must put a 
    stop to the disappearance of human colonists.  This section includes some 
    optional components, but these tasks will be designated as such and you may 
    skip them at your discretion.
    
    Next up is a section dealing with Loyalty Missions.  These missions are 
    optional, but their completion impacts the final outcome of the suicide 
    mission.
    
    There is also a section for Optional Assignments, detailing every side 
    mission in Mass Effect 2.  Assignments that deviate from the main path will 
    be included in this section.
    
    Finally, the last section consists of a brief listing of all Codex entries 
    new to Mass Effect 2, and how to acquire them.
    
    
    PRIMARY MISSION WALKTHROUGH                                            21apri
    ---------------------------
    
    Your adventure begins on the crew deck of the SSV Normandy, the most advanced 
    System Alliance starship ever created.  You are Commander Shepard, the first 
    human Spectre, who has been tasked with wiping out those responsible for the 
    attack on the Citadel...
       This section takes you through the primary mission.  There are many steps 
    involved, some of which are optional.
    
    
    SECTION 1 - Prologue                                                   21a1pr
    
    
    1 - "It's not the geth."
    The Normandy is under attack.  You were taken by surprise and there is no 
    chance of fighting back.  The only hope is to get all surviving crew members 
    to the escape shuttles.
    
        New Mission: "Prologue: Save Joker"
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    DECISIONS MADE IN MASS EFFECT 1
    
    Right away you may notice the impact of decisions made in the first game.  
    During the attack, a character rushes up to Commander Shepard to begin your 
    first conversation.  This character can be one of three from the previous 
    game: Kaidan Alenko, Ashley Williams, or Liara T'Soni.  Which character you 
    interact with is dependent on your choices in Mass Effect 1.
    
    If you imported a character from a completed game of Mass Effect 1, then the 
    surviving crew member will be the one you chose to save in that game--unless 
    you had a romance with Liara, in which case she will appear instead.  If you 
    started a new game of Mass Effect 2 without importing a character, then this 
    decision will retroactively be made for you based upon your character's 
    gender.
    
    The same holds for all events in Mass Effect 2 involving characters from the 
    first game.  Whether an individual is alive (and what their reactions are 
    towards you) will be a function of your decisions in the first game--or 
    whether you played the first game at all.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    2 - Get to the Cockpit
    After giving some orders to your surviving squad member, you gain control of 
    Commander Shepard for the first time.  Proceed forward past the sleeper pods, 
    and take a right at the fork in the crew quarters.  There are stairs to 
    either side, but only the one on the right is free from flaming debris.  
    Ascend the stairs and proceed out onto the command deck.  Follow the path 
    towards the bow of the ship where you can find Joker, the ship's helmsman.  
    Joker has Vrolik's syndrome (a condition which makes his bones unusually 
    brittle) so he will need your help to make it to the last shuttle quickly.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    THE LAZARUS PROJECT
    
    Shepard's lifeless body is recovered, and a project begins that will bring 
    the first human Spectre back from the dead.
    
    This is the point in the game where character creation takes place.  For more 
    information on the character creation process, refer to the Character 
    Creation entry in Section I. (13acha)
    
    When you wake up, you will be taken through a tutorial level.  Simply follow 
    the instructions given to you by the other characters.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    3 - A Rude Awakening
    You awake prematurely on an operating table.  The Lazarus Project has been a 
    success, but your scars have not been given enough time to heal.  
    Recuperation will have to wait however, as the space station is under attack.  
    Follow Miranda's instructions and grab your armor and pistol from the weapons 
    locker in front of you.  Take cover in the indicated circle and the door will 
    be blasted open.  Inside you can find a thermal clip for your pistol: Simply 
    walk over the clip to acquire it, then press X (R on the PC) to load it.
    
        Weapon Acquired: M-3 Predator Heavy Pistol
        Mission Complete: "Prologue: Save Joker"
    
    4 - Hostile Mechs
    Through the door in the next room you will encounter your first enemy, a 
    hacked mech.  These mechs are part of the station's defenses, but someone has 
    hacked into the security system and is using them in an attempt to kill you.  
    These mechs have no armor or shields, and are extremely vulnerable to tech 
    powers.  For now, simply use your pistol to dispatch the mech--and remember 
    that headshots inflict more damage.  Proceed up the stairs and take cover in 
    the next room.  Eliminate the mech that enters from the opposite door, but 
    stay put, as four more will enter from a door on the left side of the room.  
    You can then pick up a thermal clip from the small room where they entered.
    
    5 - Heavy Weapons Training
    Follow the corridor to find yourself on the balcony of another room.  Pick up 
    the grenade launcher on the floor and follow the instructions to equip it.  
    Four mechs will enter from the door on the level below you, so use the 
    grenade launcher to destroy them.  Bear right and step on the elevator to 
    activate it.  When you reach the bottom, hold the A button (Spacebar on the 
    PC) to storm through the fire safely.  Follow the corridor to the point where 
    Miranda drops out of contact.  In a room across the hall you can access a 
    pair of Cerberus laptops to hear some data logs from people working on the 
    Lazarus Project.  In the center of the far wall there is also a wall safe you 
    can bypass to acquire some credits. 
    
        Weapon Acquired: M-100 Grenade Launcher
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    BYPASS MINIGAME
    
    One of two minigames used for unlocking sealed doors and containers, the 
    Bypass minigame involves matching nodes that are connected on a circuit 
    board.  Moving your cursor over a node reveals a certain symbol.  Find two 
    matching symbols and then click on them in succession to compete that 
    circuit.  When each of the circuits is complete, the lock will open.
    
    Even though the nodes change each time you attempt a bypass, the circuit 
    board on which they are etched remains the same.  This means that it will 
    become faster and easier to perform a bypass the more times you do it, as you 
    can develop an intuition about which nodes connect with each other.  However, 
    be careful not to select two nodes that are not connected, as this will shut 
    down the bypass operation--and in some cases you will not be able to start it 
    again.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    6 - Jacob
    Exit the room and head up the stairs.  At the top you can access the public 
    computer to hear another audio recording from a member of the Lazarus 
    Project.  Proceed into the next room and eliminate the mechs on the far 
    balcony to initiate a conversation with Jacob Taylor, one of the people 
    responsible for security on the station.  He can fill you in on Project 
    Lazarus and what has been happening while you were unconscious.  When another 
    wave of mechs shows up, hold the Right Bumper (Left Shift on PC) and select 
    Jacob's "Pull" ability to deal with them.  After talking to Jacob again you 
    can access another audio recording on the bench behind you.
    
        +2 Renegade - "I need answers!" 
        +2 Paragon - "Just a few questions."
        +2 Renegade - "I'm tired of taking orders!"
    
    7 - Rescue Wilson
    Head through the unlocked door and pick up the thermal clip on the right side 
    of the corridor.  In the next room there are a few more mechs to fight, after 
    which Wilson will call for help on the radio.  At the top of the next flight 
    of stairs, bear left to access another recording of Miranda on a Cerberus 
    laptop.  The unlocked door on this floor leads to Wilson, who has been 
    injured and needs medical assistance.  He will instruct you to grab the medi-
    gel from the nearby medical station.  To use medi-gel, access it just as you 
    did Jacob's abilities.  When more mechs show up, use Wilson's "Overload" 
    ability on the nearby canisters to create an explosion that will destroy 
    them.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Let's get you out of here" 
        +2 Renegade - "It doesn't matter." 
        +2 Paragon - "But she tried to help me."
        +2 Renegade - "Maybe, maybe not."
        +2 Paragon - "That sounds familiar..."
        +2 Renegade - "You lied to me." 
        +2 Paragon - "I'll never work for Cerberus!"
        +2 Renegade - "What are you after?" / "He'd better have answers."
         _______________________________________
        |                                       |
        | TIP - Explosive objects cause extra   |
        | damage when you use Overload on them. |
        |_______________________________________|
    
    8 - Get to the Shuttle
    There is a datapad on the floor ahead which you can hack to acquire some 
    credits.  Head down the stairs and into the large room that leads to the 
    escape shuttles.  There are a few mechs straight ahead, and two more on the 
    balcony.  You can use the stairwells to the left or right, but be careful, as 
    four mechs will enter from either side when you reach the second level.  When 
    all the enemies are dealt with, enter the room on the left side of the 
    balcony to find a wall safe and a data pad you can access.  You can also 
    listen to the final audio recording on the nearby laptop.  When you are ready 
    to move on, open the door on the far side of the room.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    HACKING MINIGAME
    
    The Hacking minigame involves identifying the target code segment from a 
    scrolling list of random segments.  The easiest way to do this is to identify 
    a distinguishing feature about the target code (for example, several lines of 
    code all the same color) and then scan the list for that feature.
    
    If you select a non-matching code segment three times you will be locked out.  
    Additionally, scrolling over a code segment with security probes (the red 
    boxes with an X) will remove a correct code segment that you have locked in.  
    Like the bypass minigame, if you fail you may not be able to try again.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    9 - Escape the Station
    You meet up with Miranda in the docking bay.  She will take you to see the 
    Illusive man, the head of Cerberus.  As there is only one shuttle, you have 
    little choice in the matter.
    
        +2 Renegade - "I knew he was lying."
    
    10 - Memory Testing
    On the shuttle, Miranda wants to ask you some questions to ensure your memory 
    of events before the Normandy's destruction are intact.  Questions will vary 
    depending on the background of your character and what decisions you made in 
    Mass Effect 1.  Even if you imported a game, your choice for the human 
    Councilor will determine whether Anderson or Udina holds the position in Mass 
    Effect 2.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I had no choice."
        +2 Paragon - "It was painful."
        +2 Paragon - "I lost a lot of people."
        +2 Renegade - "I had to win." 
        +2 Renegade - "I refused to die." 
        +2 Renegade - "I did what was necessary." 
        +2 Paragon - "It was a hard choice."
        +2 Renegade - "It was that or die." 
        New Mission: "Prologue: Awakening"
    
    11 - The Illusive Man
    When you arrive, head down the stairs to meet with the Illusive Man.  He will 
    inform you that human colonists have been going missing and he needs you to 
    find out why.  He is sending you to Freedom's Progress, the most recent human 
    colony to drop out of contact, with the hope that your team will be the first 
    investigators to arrive.
    
        +2 Paragon - "You don't know me."
        +2 Renegade - "I need some answers." 
        +2 Paragon - "You're not my friend."
        +2 Renegade - "Skip the pleasantries." / "Not bad."
        +2 Paragon - "I'll need a lot of convincing." / "Maybe I believe you."
        +2 Renegade - "Where do we start?" 
        +2 Paragon - "Do I have a choice?"
        +2 Renegade - "I'll find the evidence."
        +1000 XP
        New Mission: "Freedom's Progress"
    
    12 - Miranda and Jacob
    When you are done speaking with the Illusive Man, head back up the stairs.  
    There is an armor locker on the right wall where you can customize your 
    appearance.  You can talk to Miranda and Jacob to learn more about them, or 
    use the door on the far side of the room to proceed to the shuttle.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Thanks for resurrecting me." / "I'll do my best."
        +2 Renegade - "You sound jealous." 
        +2 Paragon - "We don't have to be enemies."
        +2 Renegade - "Is there a problem here?" / "What's your problem?"
        +2 Paragon - "Those colonists need my help."
        +2 Renegade - "I didn't join Cerberus." / "I'll reserve judgment"
        +2 Paragon - "Yes." / "I'm not sure."
        +2 Renegade - "No."

    SECTION 2 - Freedom's Progress                                         21a2fr
    
    
    1 - Arrival
    In the shuttle you can discuss the situation with Miranda and Jacob.  The 
    Illusive Man says that you are in charge of the operation, so they will be 
    following your orders.  The colony is little more than a collection of 
    prefabricated homes nestled inside a quarry.  When you arrive, proceed 
    through the first prefab and down the steps.  Salvage the spare parts on the 
    left, and then open the large door.  On the other side you will have to fight 
    a group of mechs.  These are not much tougher than the ones you faced on the 
    Cerberus station, but the FENRIS ones will attempt to engage you at close 
    range.  Use any biotic powers at your disposal to immobilize them.  In the 
    next room you will find a med kit and a wall safe in the back corner.  
    Outside are a few more mechs and some spare parts you can salvage.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Someone could still be alive."
        +2 Renegade - "Do whatever it takes."
        Mission Complete: "Prologue: Awakening"
    
    2 - The Quarians
    In the next room you will encounter a group of quarians led by Tali'Zorah.  
    They are trying to rescue one of their fellow quarians who was on Freedom's 
    Progress when the colonists went missing.  They have confirmed that he is 
    alive, but he has rigged the mechs to attack anyone else in the colony.  You 
    will have to fight your way through to reach him.
    
        +5 Paragon "I'll prove it's really me."
        +2 Renegade - "Don't point those guns at me." 
        +2 Paragon - "I didn't have a choice."
        +2 Renegade - "I did it to help humanity." 
        +2 Renegade - "You think he's alive?" 
        +2 Paragon - "We need to team up."
        +2 Renegade - "We'll handle it from here." 
        +2 Paragon - "Sounds like a plan."
        +2 Renegade - "Forget it."
    
    3 - Drone Defenses
    There is a wall safe in the next room, and outside the door you will be 
    attacked by a group of assault drones.  Instead of a health bar, these 
    enemies are protected entirely by shields.  You can still use your weapons to 
    take them out, but they are especially susceptible to tech powers like 
    Miranda's Overload.  Be wary of the rocket drones, which have a stronger 
    attack than their assault counterparts.  Grab the med kit in the next room 
    when they are dealt with.  You have a maximum capacity of medi-gel, so any 
    excess medi-gel you acquire will be converted into 100 credits.  Keep moving 
    and head down the stairs to trigger an attack by another group of drones.  
    Stick to cover and use your tech powers to eliminate them.  There is a med 
    kit and some spare parts in the courtyard which you can salvage before you 
    proceed through the large door.
    
    4 - Reaching Veetor
    In the next courtyard you have to take on a YMIR mech.  This is your 
    introduction to fighting enemies with multiple defensive layers.  You must 
    first break through its shields and armor before you can affect its health 
    bar or use disabling biotic powers.  As noted before, Overload works well 
    against shields, and you can use incendiary ammo or Incinerate to take down 
    its armor.  You may want to duck inside the prefab to the left, which will 
    provide you with solid cover from the mech as well as some extra grenade 
    launcher ammo.  Stay in cover and use your squad to draw the mech's fire and 
    it should go down quickly enough.  When it is destroyed, you can find a med 
    kit in the prefab on the right side of the courtyard.  In the center of the 
    courtyard is some refined iridium, as well as a damaged mech you can scan for 
    research data (which you will be able to use later to create upgrades).

        | heavy weapons ammo, but also          |
        | replenish your regular ammo.          |
        |_______________________________________|
    
    5 - The Collectors
    Proceed up the steps near the damaged mech to find Veetor's hiding place.  
    Depending on your dialog choice you will either need to perform a Paragon or 
    a Renegade action by pressing either the left or right triggers (mouse 
    buttons on the PC) when prompted.  This will get Veetor's attention.  He will 
    inform you about what happened to the colony: A species of aliens known as 
    the Collectors used advanced technology to immobilize the colonists and take 
    them back to their ship.  You need to get this information back the Illusive 
    Man.  Miranda will want to take Veetor with you to determine if he knows 
    anything else, but Tali will object.  If you choose to let Tali take Veetor 
    back to her people, you will receive his omni-tool data instead, which 
    Cerberus intelligence will examine.
    
        +2 Paragon - "You're safe now."
        +2 Renegade - "Snap out of it!"
        +5 Paragon - [Interrupt]
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
        +2 Paragon - "Thank you, Veetor."
        +2 Renegade - "What a waste of time" 
        +15 Paragon - "Veetor goes with Tali."
        +15 Renegade - "Veetor has to come with us."
    
    6 - Debrief
    You will automatically be taken back to see the Illusive Man.  He will tell 
    you what he knows about the Collectors, and tasks you with finding a way to 
    stop them.  To reach the Collectors you will have to travel through the Omega 
    4 relay, a trip no non-Collector ship has ever been known to return from.  It 
    is considered a suicide mission, so the first thing you will need to do is 
    assemble a team capable of handling whatever might be on the other side of 
    the relay.  You are being given command of the SR-2, Cerberus's attempt to 
    recreate and enhance the original Normandy, and a list of dossiers of 
    potential recruits.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Having friends pays off."
        +2 Paragon - "What aren't you telling me?" 
        +2 Paragon - "I can't do it alone."
        +2 Renegade - "Agreed."
        +2 Paragon - "I hope so."

    7 - Getting Acquainted with the Normandy
    One of the first things to do is have a look around your ship.  In most rooms 
    you can access EDI--the ship's artificial intelligence--for information on 
    each area.  Use the elevator to travel between decks.  Talk to everyone you 
    can, and explore the ship as much as possible to get a sense of the layout.  
    Some areas will be closed for now, but will open up when you recruit new 
    members for your team.  You should also introduce yourself to Yeoman Kelly 
    Chambers, who will alert you if you have any new messages at your private 
    terminal. 
    
        +2 Paragon - "Joker won't like this."

    ~~~~~~~~~~
    THE SUICIDE MISSION
    
    The heart of Mass Effect 2 is acquiring the equipment and personnel to take 
    on a mission few people believe you can survive.  Whether you or your crew 
    make it through the climactic battle is a function of how well you assemble 
    your team, how loyal they are to you, and how prepared they are for your 
    mission.
    
    The first step is acquiring your team.  It is not essential to have every 
    possible character by your side when you choose to enter the Omega 4 relay, 
    but it improves your chances of success.
    
    Each team member you acquire will ultimately ask to see you about a personal 
    matter.  How you handle these missions--or whether you deal with them at all-
    -will determine whether or not a character becomes loyal to you.  Having a 
    loyal squad improves your odds of survival.
    
    The final component of your preparation is acquiring upgrades.  Some upgrades 
    will improve certain aspects of the Normandy, while others will affect the 
    abilities of you or your squad members.  A few upgrades can be purchased with 
    credits from various merchants across the galaxy, but most will have to be 
    researched using the Normandy's laboratory once you have acquired a scientist 
    capable of developing them.  Doing so requires having the requisite number of 
    resources, which you can obtain while on missions, or by using probes on 
    uninhabited planets.

    SECTION 3 - The Professor                                              21a3pr
    
    
    1 - Acquiring Mordin Solus
    Mordin is a salarian scientist and an expert in biological warfare.  
    According to his dossier he currently runs a medical clinic in the slums on 
    Omega, a lawless space station in the Terminus Systems known as a haven for 
    criminals and terrorists.  Access the galaxy map on the command deck and 
    maneuver the ship to Omega.  Select the station to dock there.  When you 
    arrive, a batarian named Moklan will demand that you go visit someone named 
    Aria at a club nearby--Afterlife.
    
        New Mission: "Omega: Aria T'Loak"
    
    2 - Meet with Aria (Optional)
    Afterlife is straight ahead when you leave the docking platform.  You can 
    head there and meet with Aria if you want, but it is not required to obtain 
    the Professor.  Aria will tell you that Mordin is down in the slums treating 
    people who are infected with a plague that has spread through the district.
    
        +2 Renegade - "Like hell." 
        +2 Paragon - "Simple enough."
        +2 Renegade - "I have similar rules."
        Mission Complete: "Omega: Aria T'Loak"
    
    3 - The Quarantined Zone
    Follow your map to reach the entrance to the quarantined zone.  There is a 
    turian guard at the entrance who has been charged with keeping civilians from 
    coming or going while the plague is still a threat.  He will not stop you 
    from entering when you say you are looking for Mordin, but you will have to 
    fight a few district guards unless you can persuade him to radio ahead and 
    let them know you are coming.  When you reach the quarantined zone, check 
    behind the barriers ahead of you to find some refined element zero.  Further 
    down the corridor you can find a medical station, as well as the district 
    guards you will have to fight if you did not get permission to be here.
    
        +5 Paragon - "Let me in and I'll help." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade - "I'm going in." [Intimidate]
        +2 Paragon - "Don't worry. You'll stay back."
        +2 Renegade - "I need you to come."
    
    5 - The Gozu District
    Open the door and descend the steps to encounter a few Blue Suns troopers.  
    They will not see you at first, so you have a good chance of taking them by 
    surprise.  Hack the nearby bank terminal, and collect the power cells in the 
    next room.  You can bypass the door on the right to find two dead citizens 
    and a few audio logs of their last days before the plague took them.  Return 
    to the area where you fought the troopers and bear left to find a batarian 
    plague victim.  You can perform a Paragon action to save his life, or let him 
    die and acquire 2000 credits from his PDA.  If he lives you can promise to 
    have the doctor send someone to help him.  Past the batarian, take the door 
    on the right and descend the steps to find a dead batarian--and recover some 
    credits from his wall safe.
    
        +2 Renegade - "Leave him." 
        +5 Paragon - [Interrupt]
        +2 Paragon - "I'm here to help."
        +2 Renegade - "I need information."
    
    6 - The Barricade
    Return up the steps and continue along the path to reach a barricade erected 
    by the Blue Suns mercs.  Up the steps to the left you can find a med kit and 
    a circuit board you can salvage.  Guarding the barricade is a legionnaire 
    flanked by two troopers.  They will receive reinforcements, so stick to cover 
    and do not move up until they have all been dealt with.  To the right of the 
    barricade is a door leading to the home of a pair of human refugees.  You can 
    persuade them to seek out Mordin's clinic--and also raid their wall safe and 
    med kit.  Beyond the barricade is a dead turian with a modified assault rifle 
    you can recover for a research upgrade.
    
        +5 Paragon - "I'll help you get there." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade - "Hiding here won't save you." [Intimidate]
    
    7 - Kokomo Plaza
    In the next area you will find the Blue Suns fighting the Blood Pack, a rival 
    mercenary group.  The Blue Suns had been in charge of protection for the 
    district, but the Blood Pack has used the plague as an opportunity to move in 
    on their turf.  They will bring a lot of reinforcements to this fight, so be 
    careful not to get surrounded.  The pyros are excellent Overload targets 
    because the tanks on their backs will explode.  Most of the troopers are not 
    too dangerous, but there are a few krogan and varren to be concerned about as 
    well.  When the fighting dies down, check out the room on the left side to 
    find some refined element zero and a couple of human looters.  You can 
    persuade them to stop, fight it out with them, or leave them alone.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I don't like looters."
        +5 Paragon - "No... but someone will." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade - "If I have to." [Intimidate]
        +2 Renegade - "Yes."
    
    8 - The Med Clinic
    There should be no one else between you and Mordin's clinic.  Head inside and 
    bear left to find him.  Searching the clinic you can find three med kits, 
    several refined resources, a research station you can use for upgrading your 
    medi-gel capacity, and some power cells.  Mordin will agree to join your team 
    if you will help him save the district from the vorcha, who have shut down 
    the environmental systems in an attempt to kill everyone.  Fortunately, the 
    doctor has synthesized a plague cure, so if you can restore power and get the 
    cure circulating through the ventilation system, the district will be saved.  
    He gives you a pistol to help you out, and asks that you look for his 
    assistant Daniel, who is stuck in vorcha territory.
    
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
        +5 Paragon - [Interrupt]
        +2 Paragon - "I'll take care of it."
        +2 Renegade - "Why can't anything be simple?"
        Weapon Acquired: M-6 Carnifex Hand Cannon
    
    9 - Fight through the Blood Pack
    There is an unlocked door in the lobby you can use to leave the clinic.  
    Around the next corner is another group of Blood Pack troopers.  A few of 
    them are armored, but it should not be too difficult to handle.  Hit up the 
    gambling terminal to the left of the stairs for some extra credits.  There is 
    also a med station on the far back right wall, as well as a bank terminal at 
    the top of the stairs.  Continue on until you reach a corridor with a room to 
    either side.  The door on the left will lead you to the doctor's assistant, 
    after which you can use the door on the right to reach the ramp down to the 
    environmental control center.  The big concern here are the vorcha heavies on 
    the far balcony.  They can be hard to hit, so try bending some powers around 
    their cover, or using the explosive canisters nearby to take them out.  When 
    they have been dealt with, descend the steps and fight through the remaining 
    troopers to get inside.
    
    10 - Deposit the Cure
    There are a few more enemies inside the entrance, along with a med kit and 
    some salvageable parts to the right side.  Follow the arrows to reach the 
    control room, where one of the vorcha will explain that the Collectors are 
    behind their actions here on Omega.  Defeat the troopers, then inject the 
    cure into the control center on the back wall.  Be ready for a counterattack.  
    You still need to initialize the fans, which are located in alcoves on either 
    side of the room.  Your immediate concern should be the boom-squad up on the 
    balconies, but be patient and cautious and you should be able to take them 
    out.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Why are you doing this?"
        +2 Renegade - "You're dead."
    
    11 - Debrief
    When both fans are initialized you will be taken back to see Mordin, who 
    agrees to honor his end of the bargain and help you stop the Collectors.  
    When you return to the Normandy he will set up in the laboratory on the 
    starboard side of the command deck. 
    
        +2 Paragon - "I'm not like that." / "I saved your life!"
        +2 Paragon - "I'm sorry. He's dead." / "Sorry, no."
        +2 Renegade - "I thought about it." / "You ungrateful little ass!"
        +2 Renegade - "He got himself killed." / "I didn't look."
        +2 Paragon - "Will you join me?"
        +2 Renegade - "Don't forget our deal." 
        +2 Paragon - "Cerberus hasn't changed."
        +2 Renegade - "Cerberus does good work." 
        +2 Renegade - "You think this is fascinating?" 
        +2 Paragon - "Yes."
        +2 Renegade - "Stay focused, Professor."

    ~~~~~~~~~~
    UPGRADING
    
    Now that you have a scientist on the team, you will be able to access the 
    research terminal in the Normandy's laboratory to commission Mordin to 
    construct various upgrades using the resources you have acquired.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    12 - Gavorn (Optional)
    When you return to Omega, talk to Shisk, a vorcha near Kenn's Salvage.  You 
    will then be able to speak with Captain Gavorn near the docking bay.  Aria 
    pays him to keep the vorcha population in line, and he compliments you on 
    your work in the slums.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Who, me? Nah."
        +2 Renegade - "I did you a favor."
    
    
    SECTION 4 - Archangel                                                  21a4ar
    
    
    1 - Acquiring Archangel
    As long as you are still visiting Omega, you should recruit Archangel.  His 
    tactical expertise and sharpshooting skill will be a real asset to the team.
    
    2 - Join the Mercs
    Head back to Afterlife and ask Aria about Archangel (if you have not done so 
    already).  She will tell you that he has managed to attract the ire of every 
    merc group on the station, and they are all teaming up to take him down.  The 
    mercenaries are recruiting freelancers to help with their attack, so talk to 
    the nearby merc recruiter to sign up.  When you are ready to go after 
    Archangel, leave the club and bear right to reach the transport depot, where 
    a Blue Suns driver is waiting for you.
    
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
        +2 Paragon - "How old are you?"
        +2 Renegade - "Yes." 
        +5 Paragon - [Interrupt]
    
    3 - Plan of Attack
    The Blue Suns, Blood Pack, and Eclipse mercs have agreed to work together, 
    and they have cornered Archangel in his base of operations.  The only way in 
    or out is a bridge that they have blocked off with a series of barricades.  
    You can explore the camp and talk to the leaders of each merc group, but they 
    do not have much to say to you.  They have been working on a few alternate 
    plans to infiltrate Archangel's base, and they need the freelancers they have 
    hired to create a distraction.  That means charging up the middle of the 
    bridge into an obvious kill zone.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Calm down."
        +2 Renegade - "What an ass." 
        +2 Renegade - "This should be good."
    
    4 - Preparations
    EDI will suggest taking some actions to improve your chances in the coming 
    battle: You will have to fight your way to Archangel, then fight your way 
    back out.  Take the first left past the Eclipse camp to find a room where 
    they store their mechs.  You can grab some credits and resources here, but 
    the real prize is the heavy mech diagnostic station, where you can bypass the 
    mech's targeting program.  This means that when they activate it, it will 
    attack the mercs.  Past the second barricade there is a datapad you can hack, 
    as well as a door on the right which you can bypass to find some research 
    data, power cells, medi-gel, and more credits.  To the left of the final 
    barricade you can find Sergeant Cathka, who is responsible for repairing the 
    gunship.  Talk to him when you are ready to start the operation.  He can fill 
    you in on a few more details, but the big opportunity here is to perform a 
    Renegade action to cut short his repairs.
    
        +5 Renegade [Interrupt]
    
    5 - Assault the Base
    You will get dropped in with the other freelancers.  They present no 
    challenge at all, so take your time exploring the base and collecting any 
    ammunition or medi-gel you need.  There should be plenty of ammo, but you may 
    want to hold off acquiring all the medi-gel, as you may need it later.  You 
    can also grab a research upgrade by scanning the X-Mods near the base of the 
    stairs.  When the freelancers are dead you can enter Archangel's room, where 
    he will reveal his identity to you.  When he hands you his sniper rifle you 
    can perform a Renegade action to take out one of the mechs.
    
        +2 Paragon - "It's good to see you."
        +2 Renegade - "Is that you, Garrus?" 
        +2 Paragon - "They won't get through."
        +2 Renegade -"Let's kick ass." 
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
    
    6 - Eclipse
    The first wave of enemies you have to hold off are the Eclipse, spearheaded 
    by their LOKI mechs.  I suggest staying up on the balcony for now, as it 
    gives you a good vantage point from which to attack the enemies coming over 
    the bridge.  If anyone slips past you and gets into the base, reposition 
    yourself at the top of the stairs and take them out from there.  Following 
    the mechs, Eclipse troopers will start coming over the wall.  Concentrate on 
    the engineers and vanguards as they have extra defenses.  There are also a 
    few heavy troopers that can cause some problems, but biotics works great for 
    pushing them off the bridge.
    
    7 - The Heavy Mech
    Eventually, they will drop in the YMIR mech.  If you reprogrammed its 
    targeting computer then you can sit back and watch as it takes out the other 
    mechs and troopers for you.  Otherwise, apply the rules for taking down 
    enemies with multiple defensive layers: Overload its shields, use incendiary 
    powers or ammo on its armor, and biotics when it is down to its red health 
    bar.  The same holds for when Jaroth himself shows up.  After the fighting 
    dies down you can pick up some medi-gel and search the nearby footlocker.  
    You should also pick up the Vindicator Battle Rifle from the couch if you 
    have not done so already.  Talk to Garrus when you are ready for the next 
    round.
    
        Weapon Acquired: M-15 Vindicator Battle Rifle
    
    8 - The Blood Pack
    The mercs have penetrated the basement and are forcing you to fight on two 
    fronts.  You can take your full team down to the basement to close off that 
    entrance, or leave one of your squad members to help Garrus hold his 
    position.  Leaving someone behind will increase the amount of time you have 
    to seal the basement shutters before Garrus gets overwhelmed, but it means 
    you also have one less person to help you accomplish your objective.  Descend 
    the stairs and bear left to reach the basement door.  Immediately ahead is a 
    medical station and a weapons locker where you can change out your equipment.
    
        +5 Paragon - "I'm not leaving you alone."
        +5 Renegade - "You need help."
    
    9 - Close the Shutters
    There are three shutters to close on this level to keep the Blood Pack out.  
    Each takes ten seconds to close, and the countdown will abort if the shutter 
    becomes obstructed by anyone walking underneath it.  The one directly ahead 
    of you is easy enough to seal before the group of troopers on the other side 
    can get through it.  The door on the right side leads to a fairly large room, 
    already teeming with enemies when you arrive.  It is very easy to get 
    surrounded in this room if you push forward too quickly.  The enemies tend to 
    appear in waves, so take out each wave before advancing closer to the 
    shutters.  There is a medical kit to the right of the shutter you can use to 
    replenish your medi-gel if necessary.  When the shutter is closed, turn 
    around and head across to the final room.  This area is much narrower, which 
    can make things a little tricky.  Around the corner is a pyro you will need 
    to be wary of, as it can be hard to get an angle on him without getting 
    blasted in the face with his flamethrower.  Beyond that, the path to the 
    final shutter is relatively clear.
    
    10 - Protect Garrus
    Back at the base, Garn will take a krogan warrior up the stairs with him to 
    attack Garrus.  Deal with the vorcha troopers quickly, then hurry after them.  
    You can take cover at the top of the steps and eliminate the warrior, then 
    head into the room to fight Garn.  If you back off, he will refocus his 
    attention on Garrus, something you can use to your advantage.
    
    11 - The Blue Suns
    Whether you dealt with Cathka or not, the gunship will show up and the Blue 
    Suns will begin dropping off mercs.  A few of them have extra shields or 
    armor, but it should not be anything too difficult.  When Garrus says they 
    are rappelling down the side wall, reposition yourself at the top of the 
    stairs to keep them from getting up to the second level.  The final enemy is 
    Tarak and his gunship.  Now is the time to make use of any heavy weapons ammo 
    you have, as almost anything else will be only marginally effective.
    
    12 - Debrief
    Garrus is badly injured, but aside from some damage to his appearance, 
    Chakwas will be able to restore full functionality.  When you are done 
    talking, Garrus will get set up in the forward batteries on the crew deck.
    
        +2 Paragon - "No worse than usual, buddy." 
        +2 Paragon - "You've got my back."

    1 - Acquiring Jack
    Next up on your list of specialists is Jack, who is rumored to be the most 
    powerful human biotic in the galaxy.  Jack is being held on the prison ship 
    Purgatory, but Cerberus has negotiated the prisoner's release.  Head to the 
    Osun System in the Hourglass Nebula to find the prison.
    
    2 - Warden Kuril
    When you arrive, talk to the prison guard ahead of you.  He will ask you to 
    relinquish your weapons, but ultimately they will not be taken from you.  The 
    warden arrives and gives you a brief tour of the station.  He will then leave 
    to check that the funds for Jack's release been transferred.  On the way to 
    outprocessing you can persuade the guards to stop beating the prisoner in one 
    of the interrogation rooms.  Prisoner 780 will ask that you buy him too, but 
    rescinds his request when he finds out you are here for Jack...
    
        +2 Renegade - "Go to hell." 
        +2 Renegade - "It's not going to happen."
        +2 Paragon - "Is this necessary?"
        +2 Renegade - "That's justice"
        +5 Paragon - "This is beneath you." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade - "I told you to stop." [Intimidate]
        +2 Renegade - "You're doing the right thing." 
    
    3 - Outprocesing
    Keep left at the fork to get to outprocessing.  When you access the door on 
    the far side of the room you will realize it only leads to one of the modular 
    cells you saw earlier.  It seems that not only does the warden have no 
    intention of handing Jack over to you, he means to make you his prisoner as 
    well!
    
        +2 Paragon - "Let's negotiate."
        +2 Renegade - "What about serving the galaxy?" / "Hell, no."
    
    4 - Find Jack
    Your mission is far too important to waste time rotting in prison, so you 
    will have to fight your way out.  Some Blue Suns troopers and FENRIS mechs 
    will attack you.  When they are dead, head back the way you came, this time 
    taking the path to the supermax wing.  Kill the technician in the room at the 
    end of the corridor, and activate the security controls to release Jack.  Hit 
    up the med station and grab the refined element zero before you proceed.
    
    5 - Jack's Wake of Destruction
    Head out the door and continue down the ramp.  In the room with the destroyed 
    mechs you can scan one for some research data.  Follow the path Jack has 
    carved into the side passage, where there are some power cells you can grab, 
    along with a dead prison guard you can loot.  The passage opens up into the 
    cell block you saw on your way in--only now you are on the other side of the 
    glass.  You need to get to the door on the far side of the room, but there is 
    a YMIR mech to contend with first.  Fortunately, it moves quite slowly and 
    there is enough cover that it should not be able to do much harm to you.  
    Before moving on, head up the ramp to the left and hack the PDA of the dead 
    prison guard.  You can also scan the shotgun by the door for some research 
    data.
    
    6 - The Next Cell Block
    There is a medical station, credits, and some power cells in the next room.  
    Move on to the next cell block where more Blue Suns and another heavy mech 
    are waiting for you.  I would advise that you get up on the balcony to the 
    left to have a better vantage point on the reinforcements coming through the 
    door on the far side.  On your way forward, grab the credits off the prison 
    guard by the door.
    
    7 - Showdown with Kuril
    Pick up the supplies in the anteroom and move on to the final cell block.  
    Kuril is at the far end of the room, protected by three of the station's 
    shield generators.  The one to the left is unguarded, and there are only a 
    few Blue Suns protecting the one in the center.  Just shoot each one until 
    they are destroyed.  You need to be a little more cautious making your way to 
    the right, as there are many more defenders and you have to cross a bridge 
    without any cover.  When you eliminate all the enemies, take down the last 
    shield protecting Kuril.  He has shields and armor, but his weapon is only 
    dangerous if you get too close.
    
    8 - Debrief
    With the warden dead the only thing left to do is pick up Jack.  She is not 
    pleased about having to work with Cerberus, but the Normandy is the only way 
    off the station.  She agrees to come along in exchange for access to 
    Cerberus's files.  You can lie to her, but it does not make a difference.  
    Once aboard, she will take up residence on the Engineering Sub-Deck.

    1 - Acquiring the Warlord
    The next dossier from the Illusive Man points to Korlus, a junkyard world 
    whose economy is based on the recycling of spacecraft.  Here you will find a 
    Krogan named Okeer, who is believed to have contacted the Collectors for 
    technology to help save his people from the genophage.  If so, his knowledge 
    of the Collectors would make him a valuable ally.

    Okeer's lab is nestled in the heart of a Blue Suns training ground.  Merc 
    groups like the Suns use the husks of old spaceships for weapons testing or 
    combat training, though it is unclear what Okeer would be doing here.  Round 
    the corner ahead and take out the first group of troopers, who will attack 
    you on sight.  Beyond is a wounded merc who can fill you in on the situation: 
    It seems Okeer has been attempting to breed an army of krogan, but the ones 
    he has produced thus far have had damaged mental functions so the Blue Suns 
    have been using them in live-fire training exercises.  Eventually, he will be 
    contacted on the radio by his superior.  You can convince him not to divulge 
    your location, but it does not really matter: You will have to fight your way 
    through the Suns regardless.

        +2 Renegade - "Where's the warlord?" 
        +5 Paragon - "Get rid of them." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade - "Reply with bad instructions." [Intimidate]
        +5 Paragon - [Interrupt]
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
    
    3 - Tank-Grown
    Around the next corner there are some troopers up on the balcony.  Head down 
    the steps and follow the trail of dead krogan.  There is a med kit up ahead, 
    and some heavy troopers up on the balcony around the next corner.  Move left 
    and descend the hill to find one of the tank-grown krogan.  Help fight off 
    his attackers.  After you speak with him, he will move the large piece of 
    debris blocking your path so you can proceed.
    
    4 - To the Lab
    Now you have a lot of fighting to do.  Start by killing the fleeing 
    mercenaries at the bottom of the hill.  There are several krogan berserkers 
    up ahead, so be cautious.  When the krogan are dead, grab the refined 
    platinum from the container and head up the stairs.  At the top there is a 
    sniper rifle you can scan for some research data, along with some power cells 
    and a medical station.  Be ready when you open the door, as a group of 
    heavies are waiting on the other side.  When they are dealt with, proceed 
    left along the balcony.  After fighting a large group of mercs, hack the PDA 
    on the far side.  Be ready to fight another group at the top of the stairs.  
    Grab some credits from the Blue Suns corpse on the balcony, then head across 
    the bridge and finish off the last of the mercs on this level.  There are 
    power cells, a datapad, and a wall safe in this room.  Go up the stairs 
    again, then fight your way across the battlefield.  When you get to the 
    stairs at the far side, head up them to get a good vantage point on the 
    remaining enemies.  When everyone on this level is dead, you are finally 
    ready to go see Okeer.
    
    5 - The Warlord
    Bear left and continue through the door.  Access the medical station and hack 
    the secure terminal for some extra credits.  If she survived your encounter 
    on Virmire in Mass Effect 1, Rana Thanoptis will be here as well.  Okeer is 
    in the next room.  He was apparently contracted by Jedore--the mercenary 
    leader--to create an army of krogan, but so far his experiments have been 
    largely unsuccessful.  However, his use of Collector technology has allowed 
    him to create one pure krogan--the perfect soldier.  His strategy is not to 
    merely to restore the krogan to the numbers that once threatened the galaxy, 
    but rather to make each new krogan as powerful as possible.  He would like to 
    continue his work, but Jedore has become impatient...
    
        +2 Paragon - "Why are you here?"
        +2 Renegade - "Everyone there should be dead." 
        +2 Paragon - "Try harder to avoid trouble."
        +2 Renegade - "Stay out of my way."
        +2 Paragon - "Okeer, I presume?"
        +2 Renegade - "Change your tone." 
        +2 Paragon - "A tough decision."
        +2 Renegade - "I did what I had to do." 
        +2 Paragon - "Will you join us?"
        +2 Renegade - "Is your soldier ready?" / "I'm handing you to Cerberus."
        +2 Paragon - "Why so concerned?"
        +2 Renegade - "Why should I trust you?" / "Looks like I hold power now."
    
    6 - Jedore
    The Blue Suns leader has decided to scrap the project and start over from 
    Okeer's data.  Head out the door and down the ramps to reach her.  In 
    addition to Jedore herself, you will have to contend with her heavy mech and 
    any krogan she can release from their pods.  Take up position on the left 
    side of the room.  It will be difficult to approach Jedore directly, so focus 
    on taking out the krogan berserkers first.  When Jedore is dead, return to 
    the lab.  Do not forget to bypass the lab terminal on the right to recover 
    some research data.  
    
    7 - Okeer's Legacy
    Okeer is dead--killed by the toxins pumped into the room.  However, his pure 
    krogan subject is intact, and would make a fine replacement if it lives up to 
    Okeer's expectations.
    
        +2 Paragon - "He's hard to pass up." / "Professional jealousy, Mordin?"
        +2 Renegade - "Is he worth the headache?" / "That's my call."
    
    8 - Debrief
    Back on the Normandy, the question arises: What should be done with the 
    krogan?  Cerberus is concerned about the dangers of waking it up, and does 
    not want to miss the opportunity to study it.  But a pure krogan would be a 
    powerful ally--if he can be persuaded to join your cause.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Relax, it's sealed."
        +2 Renegade - "Keep it to yourselves."
        +2 Paragon - "So we'll be careful."
        +2 Renegade - "Replaceable."

    9 - Open the Tank (Optional)
    If you choose to open the tank, the krogan will attack you.  If you are 
    unable to persuades him to join your mission, you will have to shoot him to 
    prove that you are worthy of his loyalty.  Either way, you gain a new team 
    member--Grunt.
    
        +2 Paragon - "He's too valuable to leave."
        +2 Renegade - "Do as I say, EDI." 
        +2 Paragon - "You'll get more than that." 
        +5 Paragon - "Join my crew. We'll find it." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade - "My command is your reason." [Intimidate]
        +2 Paragon - "Stand down or else."
        +2 Renegade - "I released you. You owe me."

        +2 Paragon - "You leave me no choice"
        +2 Renegade - "I was being generous."

    SECTION 7 - Horizon                                                    21a7ho
    
    
    1 - Early Warning
    As soon as you have followed up on all four of the Illusive Man's dossiers, 
    he will contact you with new information: Horizon--a human colony in the 
    Terminus Systems--has just dropped out of contact.  Believing this to be the 
    latest Collector attack, he is ordering you to head to Horizon immediately 
    and meet the abductors head-on.
    
        New Mission: "Horizon"
    
    2 - Explore the Colony
    You will be taken directly to Horizon.  The Collector attack is already 
    underway when you arrive, and the colonists are in the process of being 
    loaded onto the Collector ship.  Round the corner up ahead to begin your 
    first encounter with the Collectors.  The drones are very vulnerable, but the 
    guardians have a biotic barrier.  Pay special attention to the assassins, as 
    they carry the Collector heavy weapon.  Use Concussive Shot or Warp to take 
    down their barriers, and biotic powers to immobilize them.  Pick up the power 
    cells after defeating all the enemies, and hack the datapad on the table up 
    ahead.
    
    3 - The Reaper Connection
    Continue up the hill and drop down the small ledge to enter the next area.  
    There is a datapad in the prefab unit on the right, but first you must 
    contend with more Collectors--and an old nemesis: Husks.  These monstrosities 
    have no weapons and will attempt to engage you at close range.  Individually 
    they are not very powerful, but in groups they become extremely dangerous.  
    The husks are created using Reaper technology, so this proves the Collectors 
    are working with them.  Examine the dead Collector on the far side of the 
    area to find a research upgrade.  In the next area you can find a med kit in 
    the prefab to the left of the path, plus a wall safe on the right side.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Let's go save the colonists"
        +2 Renegade - "We're wasting time here."
    
    4 - Harbinger
    Up ahead and around the corner, take the stairs near the static colonists to 
    find a room with a computer you can hack for credits.  (You're not above 
    stealing from helpless colonists are you?)  Head back down the stairs and 
    grab the Collector Particle Beam leaning against one of the pods.  This will 
    replace your current heavy weapon, but there will be a weapons locker up 
    ahead where you can swap it for a different heavy weapon.  Next you will 
    encounter Harbinger, a drone under direct control of the Collector General.  
    While controlled, the drone gains armor and a biotic barrier, making it the 
    most powerful Collector soldier you will face.  Whenever you are fighting 
    Harbinger you should deal with the other drones first, as it may jump to 
    another soldier when you destroy it.  There are some power cells in a shack 
    to the far left that you should grab before proceeding through the large door 
    on the right.
    
        Weapon Acquired: Collector Particle Beam
    
    5 - The Mechanic
    Inside you will find a mechanic who managed to escape capture by the 
    Collectors.  He will tell you that the colony's defense towers need to be 
    calibrated--a job EDI should make quick work of.  The terminal can be found 
    at the base of the communications tower on the far side of the colony.
    
        +2 Renegade - "Calm down!" 
        +2 Paragon - "Who are you?" 
        +2 Renegade - "You're a coward." 
        +2 Paragon - "Wait here."
    
    6 - To the Tower
    Grab the refined palladium and change out your weapons at the locker if you 
    so desire.  There are also some credits in the wall safe for you to collect.  
    Head out the door to get back to the action.  The courtyard with the 
    transmitter is through the door on the far side of this area, but you will 
    have to fight your way there.  Expect to see Harbinger again, along with a 
    new enemy, the scion.  These foes can absorb a lot of damage, and can also 
    launch a biotic Shockwave, so stick to cover whenever you have to contend 
    with one.  There is not much to pick up in this area, just some research data 
    from a dead collector and some credits in a computer up on the top level.
    
    7 - Restore Power
    Head through the large door to reach the communications tower.  There are 
    some power cells to the right, and a med kit on a platform to the left.  You 
    will be beset by husks and scions.  When things die down, hack the computer 
    near the tower to give EDI access to the defense systems.  Recalibrating the 
    defenses is simple, but you will have to wait for the generator to power up.  
    Retreat to the far side of the combat area, and prepare for several waves of 
    enemy reinforcements.  Most of these enemies are ones you have faced before, 
    but you will ultimately have to fight a new enemy: The praetorian.  Each time 
    you whittle down a portion of its thick armor, it will generate a new biotic 
    barrier to protect itself.  It also has a powerful beam weapon at its 
    disposal, so stick to cover as much as you can, and retreat quickly if it 
    starts getting too close.
    
    8 - An Attack Interrupted
    With the defense towers online, the Collector ship will be forced to 
    withdraw.  Some of the colonists were saved--a small victory perhaps, but a 
    victory nonetheless.  You will also be reunited with one of your former crew 
    members, who is decidedly displeased that you have joined up with Cerberus...
    
        +2 Paragon - "It's too late."
        +2 Renegade - "What do you expect me to do?" 
        +2 Paragon - "I'm sorry."
        +2 Renegade - "Blame them, not me." 
        +2 Paragon - "It's good to see you again."
        +2 Renegade - "I was. We can't get into it." 
        +2 Paragon - "Too much time has passed."
        +2 Renegade - "I have important things to do." 
        +2 Paragon - "Cerberus isn't the enemy."
        +2 Renegade - "I don't work for Cerberus." 
        +2 Paragon - "I'm not a traitor."
        +2 Renegade - "Get over it." 
        +2 Paragon - "You're too emotional"
        +2 Paragon - "Don't go. Join Me."
        +2 Renegade - "Fat Chance."
    
    9 - Debrief
    The Illusive Man suspected that the Collectors were interested in you, so he 
    leaked information that you were alive in order to lure the Collectors into 
    an attack on one of your known associates.  A calculated risk, but you were 
    able to save half the colony, which is better than anyone has accomplished 
    thus far.  You still lack the information necessary to launch an attack on 
    the Omega 4 relay, so you will need to continue building up your team.  In 
    the meantime, the Illusive Man will forward three more dossiers for you to 
    look into.  If you talk with Kelly afterwards she will express her concern, 
    knowing that reuniting with someone after so long can be difficult.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I didn't save everyone."
        +2 Renegade - "I enjoyed the fight." 
        +2 Paragon - "No more colonies get hit."
        +2 Renegade - "Let's go on the offensive." 
        +5 Paragon - "My team is strong."
        +2 Renegade - "Don't worry so much." 
        +2 Paragon - "We can do this."
        +2 Renegade - "Don't lose your nerve now."
        +2 Renegade - "No."

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS
    
    At this point you will start having the option to help your team members with 
    various personal issues.  Each member of your team has some loose ends they 
    want to tie up before they embark on the mission through the Omega 4 relay.  
    Preparing for this suicide mission means having everyone at their best, so 
    helping your team members will ensure their minds are properly focused when 
    the time comes.
    
    Your journal will update with new missions as they become available, and you 
    can also find out about them by talking to Yeoman Chambers on the command 
    deck.  Completing these missions is entirely optional, but it will make you 
    better prepared to face whatever is on the other side of the Omega 4 relay.  
    Each Loyalty mission will be covered in detail in the next section. (21bloy)

    1 - Security
    Before you head off to track down the specialists in your new dossiers, take 
    the time to visit the Citadel.  In addition to a few optional assignments, 
    you will be able to seek reinstatement into the Spectres or visit the shops 
    on the Zakera Ward.  When you arrive, go straight through the door ahead of 
    you and speak to the guard.  The C-Sec system believes you are dead, so you 
    will have to speak to Captain Bailey to get it straightened out.
    
        New Mission: "Citadel: Captain Bailey"
    
    2 - Bailey
    Head through the door and speak with Captain Bailey.  You can get him to 
    restore your "alive" status, or tell him to leave the system alone and let it 
    continue to think you are dead.  There is no consequence for this decision.

    3 - Anderson, Udina, and the Council
    Check your map to find one of the many rapid transit terminals and use it to 
    travel to the Presidium.  This will take you directly to the human embassy, 
    where you will meet with Anderson, who is--depending on the choice you made 
    in the shuttle from the Lazarus Station--either an advisor to Councilor 
    Udina, or the Councilor himself.  He can fill you in on what has been going 
    on the last two years.  If the Council survived the Battle of the Citadel, 
    they will offer to reinstate you into the Spectres, though it makes little 
    difference.

    1 - Acquiring the Justicar
    Up next on your list of specialists is Samara, a powerful asari whose biotic 
    powers and combat training will make her a worthy member of your suicide 
    squad.  Samara has recently come to Illium, a world colonized by asari 
    corporations only a few centuries ago.  Travel to the Crescent Nebula and 
    land on Illium to begin your search
    
    2 - Nos Astra
    A concierge will greet you when you arrive on Illium.  Your docking fees have 
    been waved by Liara T'Soni, who has an office near the trading floor.  Once a 
    member of Commander Shepard's crew, Liara is now an information broker in Nos 
    Astra, so you should seek her out to learn where to find the specialists in 
    your dossiers.
    
        New Mission: "Illium: Liara T'Soni"
    
    3 - Liara
    Head past the trading floor and up the stairs to Liara's office.  She can 
    tell you that Samara had to register with Tracking Officer Dara, so you 
    should see her in the carport if you want to find out where she is now.  You 
    can also find out about Liara's efforts to take down the Shadow Broker, and 
    volunteer your assistance.

    4 - Hack the Terminals
    Use your map to find your way to the transportation hub.  The first secure 
    station is near the tracking office: Hack it and then hurry to the vulnerable 
    system nearby to upload the data to Liara.  Repeat this process two more 
    times in this area to collect all the data, then return to Liara to find out 
    what the next step is.  Liara has narrowed the search for the Shadow Broker's 
    agent down to five individuals on Illium.  She needs your help to find the 
    right one.

    information about the individuals under suspicion.  One terminal is in 
    Eternity, and the rest are scattered around the trading floor.  You can call 
    Liara and accuse any of the individuals after hacking a datapoint, but if you 
    hack all five terminals you will have the additional option of telling her 
    that none of the suspects could be the Observer.  Head back to Liara to wrap

    Head back to the transportation hub and speak with the tracking officer.  She 
    will tell you that Samara left for the commercial spaceport a few hours ago.  
    You can summon a cab to take you there.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I only want to talk."
        +2 Renegade - "So what if she did?"
    
    7 - The Spaceport
    The spaceport is locked down--a volus businessman has been murdered, and 
    Detective Anaya isn't letting anyone leave until the case is resolved.  Head 
    into the police station, where you can grab some extra medi-gel or swap out 
    your equipment at the weapons locker.  The detective will tell you that you 
    can find Samara at the crime scene.  Anaya's superiors are pressuring her to 
    arrest the justicar before she causes any trouble, but Anaya is reluctant: 
    Justicars will kill anyone who obstructs their pursuit of justice.  You 
    should try to find Samara before that happens.
    
    8 - Back Alleys
    It is time to investigate the crime scene.  Leave the police station and 
    approach the area that has been cordoned off.  At the end of the alley there 
    are some circuit boards you can salvage.  Up the stairs on the left you will 
    encounter an Eclipse vanguard, a sisterhood initiate, and a group of LOKI 
    mechs.  When they are dead, just go through the door on the left to encounter 
    Samara.  She is searching for the name of a ship that the Eclipse used to 
    smuggle a certain package offworld.  Until she finds what she is after, she 
    will be unable to join you.
    
        +2 Paragon - "You killed in cold blood."
        +2 Paragon - "Yes, I am."
        +2 Renegade - "No, not really." 
        +2 Paragon - "I need you on my team." 
        +2 Paragon - "Maybe I can help."
    
    9 - The Eclipse Base
    Anaya is forced to arrest Samara, who will be forced to kill her unless you 
    can find the evidence she seeks.  Speak with the volus Pitne For, who can 
    give you a passcard to enter the Eclipse base.  You can perform a Renegade 
    action to pull a gun on him, but he gives you the information regardless.  
    Head over to the elevator nearby and use it to reach the base.
    
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
    
    10 - Toxins
    There is a dormant mech at the top of the elevator, and a number of vanguards 
    in the next room.  The quirk to the Eclipse base is that it is littered with 
    containers that--when smashed open--release a chemical that is toxic in large 
    doses, but can boost biotic abilities in moderation.  In practice, your best 
    bet is just to avoid the cloud of gas that appears, as it will begin to 
    damage you if you stay near it for too long.  
    
    11 - Elnora (Optional)
    Pick up the Scimitar Assault Shotgun in the next room.  Through the door on 
    the right you can find Elnora, an eclipse merc who claims to be a raw recruit 
    and is having serious misgivings about joining up.  You can perform a 
    Renegade action to kill her when she pulls a gun on you, or you can let her 
    walk away.  Grab the power cells and the research data from the room before 
    you leave.
    
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt.]

    12 - Clear out the Base
    You will find more mercs and mechs at the top of the stairs.  There is a 
    medical station on this level, as well as an Eclipse terminal you can hack.  
    Head up the stairs, rinse, and repeat: There is another medical station, and 
    another terminal on this level as well.
    
    13 - The Gunship
    Grab the refined platinum to the left when you reach the top level.  You will 
    find a gunship nearby, which will retreat as soon as you attack it or get too 
    close.  Clear out all the mercs and then head inside to find some power cells 
    and a medical station.  There is also a data file you can access in which 
    Elnora confesses to murdering Pitne For's business partner.  If you did not 
    kill her when you had the chance, she will be long gone by now.  Head through 
    the tunnel to get back outside, then kill the mechs and grab the power cells.  
    Have your heavy weapon ready when you cross the bridge, as the gunship will 
    make a reappearance.  Whatever damage you might have done previously will be 
    gone when you reencounter it here, so grab some cover and fire as many rounds 
    as you can.  The gunship will sweep back and forth across this area, 
    sometimes hovering on the near side of the bridge, other times flying off 
    into the distance to set up an attack run.  Look out for the FENRIS mechs 
    that it sometimes drops onto the battlefield.  When you take it down, cross 
    the bridge and grab the med kit.
    
    14 - Wasea
    Keep going until you find Niftu Cal, a volus visibly under the influence of 
    the Minagen X3 supplied by Pitne For.  He drastically overestimates his 
    biotic abilities, and will charge into combat unless you perform a Paragon 
    action: Needless to say, it will not end well for him when you encounter 
    Captain Wasea in the next room.  When the fight begins, tell your squad to 
    take cover, then flank around to the right side.  Unless you kill her 
    quickly, Wasea will use her biotics to move the giant crates blocking the 
    stairs behind her and retreat to the upper level of the room.  She will also 
    hurl the toxic containers at you, so be careful to avoid them.  There is less 
    room to maneuver on the upper level, but there is still plenty of cover.  
    When all the mercs are defeated, return to Wasea's desk to collect her 
    datapad.

    15 - Samara's Oath
    Return to the police station and give Samara the name of the ship she was 
    looking for.  With her business on Illium concluded, she agrees to join your 
    team.  Detective Anaya is more than happy to let her depart.  Samara will 
    swear an oath to temporarily suspend her justicar code so that she can follow 
    your orders, even if they conflict with her strict moral code.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I am honored." / "Welcome to the team."

    observation deck as her quarters.
    
        +2 Renegade - "We need her."
    
    
    SECTION 10 - The Assassin                                              21a10a
    
    
    1 - Acquiring Thane
    Head back to Illium, this time to pick up the Assassin.  Your dossier lists 
    Thane Krios as a noted sniper and biotics expert, who has been a hired killer 
    for nearly his whole life.  Whatever his history, the top assassin in the 
    galaxy would be a worthy addition to your team.
    
    2 - Liara's Intel
    If you have yet to do so, go visit Liara and ask her about Thane.  She will 
    direct you to Seryna, the former head of security for Nassana Dantius.  
    Dantius is Thane's latest target, and while Seryna cannot tell you exactly 
    where Thane is, she can tell you where he is going...
    
        +2 Renegade - "Show some respect." 
        +2 Paragon - "Where is he?"
        +2 Renegade - "Then talk fast."
    
    3 - The Dantius Towers
    When you arrive you will see some mechs gunning down the salarian workers.  
    Nassana is paranoid about security, and has ordered her forces to kill anyone 
    on sight, even her own employees.  Take out the mechs and then head to the 
    alcove on the left to find a medical station and a secure terminal.  Back on 
    the right side of the entrance you can find a wounded salarian.  Perform a 
    Paragon action to save his life.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I'm sorry."
        +2 Renegade - "You're lucky." 
        +5 Paragon - [Interrupt]
        +5 Paragon - "Hang on."
        +2 Renegade - "We're done here."
    
    4 - Ground Floors
    This mission requires a lot of combat, but most of the enemies you will face 
    are troopers or mechs.  Head to the left and enter the door on the opposite 
    side to find a ramp up to the next level.  Grab the med kits on the right, 
    and then clear out this floor as well.  Circle around to find a door you can 
    bypass, where there are a few salarians hiding from Nassana's mercs.  Past 
    this door on the left you will find an alcove with a secure terminal and some 
    power cells where you can acquire the Viper Sniper Rifle.  Before you call 
    the elevator on this floor, tell your squad to take cover behind the barriers 
    opposite the door: When it arrives, two Eclipse engineers and a krogan bounty 
    hunter will come with it.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Yes."
        +2 Renegade - "No."
        Weapon Acquired: M-97 Viper Sniper Rifle
    
    5 - The Penthouse Level
    Take the service elevator to the top floors.  There is an Eclipse trooper who 
    is reluctant to give you any information, so you can perform a Renegade 
    action to shove him out the nearby window.  Take out the mechs and troopers 
    in the next room, then bypass the door on the left to find another group of 
    salarians.  You can perform a Renegade action to disarm the salarian with the 
    pistol, or persuade him that you are not a threat.  When they leave, grab the 
    med kit and hack the PDA on the merc corpse.  Head left when you leave and 
    pick up some power cells.  You can also taunt Nassana by using the nearby 
    comm terminal.  Head up the ramp and clear out the next level.  There is some 
    element zero, a med kit, and a weapons locker on the far side.
    
        +2 Renegade - "I need answers." 
        +2 Paragon - "I've got an offer."
        +2 Renegade - "Listen carefully." 
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
        +5 Paragon - "Don't be stupid." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade - "I hope you can fly." [Intimidate]

        +5 Paragon - "Let me help you." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade - "Put down the gun." [Intimidate]
        +2 Paragon - "I don't think so."
        +2 Renegade - "Not that one."
    
    6 - The Bridge
    Follow the path to the exterior of the building.  Fight your way through the 
    mechs and vanguards to reach the bridge connecting the two towers, then scan 
    the submachine gun, grab the med kit, and hack the PDA.  There is plenty of 
    cover on the bridge, just be wary of the rocket drones on the far side.  
    Ascend the stairs on the opposite end of the bridge, and take out the 
    remaining vanguards.  Kill the commando guarding the door and you will be 
    able to stroll right into Nassana's office.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Interesting idea."
        +2 Renegade - "Is that what you think?" 
        +2 Paragon - "You still think it's me?"
        +2 Renegade - "You're delusional."
        +2 Paragon - "I met some of your workers."
        +2 Renegade - "You're pathetic." 
        +2 Paragon - "Bastard."
        +2 Paragon - "Saving lives."
        +2 Renegade - "Killing bad guys." 
        +2 Paragon - "We'll find a way."
        +2 Renegade - "So I've heard." 
        +2 Paragon - "I'm sorry."
        +2 Renegade - "You're worried about humans?"
    
    7 - Debrief
    Thane agrees to join up with you--no charge.  He has a medical condition that 
    will kill him in less than a year, but it should not impact his ability to 
    complete your mission.  When you return to the Normandy, Thane will take up 
    residence in the life support section of the crew deck.
    
        +2 Paragon - "What's the problem, Jacob?"
        +2 Renegade - "Watch yourself, Thane." 
        +2 Renegade - "Keep an eye on him."

    8 - Message from Seryna (Optional)
    Go back to where you encountered Seryna on Illium and speak with Tana.  She 
    will give you a message from Seryna congratulating you on taking down 
    Nassana.
    
    
    SECTION 11 - The Engineer                                              21a11e
    
    
    1 - Acquiring Tali
    No organic knows more about the geth.  Tali'Zorah is an expert engineer and 
    machinist, and her knowledge of systems hacking and combat tech will make her 
    a valuable member of the team.  Tali is currently on a special assignment in 
    the Far Rim--deep within geth-controlled space.
    
    2 - Haestrom
    Dholen is aging at an alarming rate.  It is giving off very high levels of 
    radiation, so exposure to sunlight on the surface of Haestrom will begin to 
    degrade your shields.  While it will not kill you, it is best to avoid 
    sunlight while in combat.  When you arrive, descend the ramps and enter the 
    gatehouse.  Salvage the damaged geth, and collect some medi-gel before 
    opening the gate.  Outside, a geth ship will drop some troopers.  To get 
    across the battlefield more safely, ascend the ramp to the right where there 
    is more shade and cover.  Up here you can find a ramp inside the structure 
    which leads to a customized heavy pistol you can scan for some research data.  
    Grab the iridium outside and then continue to the next area.
    
    3 - The Quarians
    Around the corner you can find a radio linked to Kal'Reegar, one of the 
    quarian marines assigned to protect Tali.  Salvage the geth hunter and pick 
    up the Tempest SMG on the ground nearby.  You will need to collect two 
    demolition charges to clear the path to the quarians.  Bear left and fight 
    your way inside the opening to find the first charge.  There is also a med 
    kit and a medical station in the area.  When you pick up the demo charge, be 
    ready for a counterattack, including a geth prime.  Fight your way back 
    outside and head left.  Cross the open ground ahead to reach an enclave with 
    the second charge.  Once again, be ready for an ambush when you come back 
    outside.  One of your squad members will suggest ducking into the room on the 
    left, which leads up to the walkway above you.  Fight through the geth and 
    return to the collapsed pillar.  Plant the explosives, get clear of the 
    blast, and then head inside.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I'm here to help."
        +2 Renegade - "They're all dead." 
        +2 Paragon - "What's your current status?"
        Weapon Acquired: M-9 Tempest Submachine Gun
    
    4 - Link Up with Kal'Reegar
    Salvage the damaged geth in this room and scan the geth rifle for some 
    research data.  Activate the communications console to respond to Tali, who 
    will open the door for you.  Head outside and fight your way across the field 
    to reach Kal'Reegar, after disabling the security lockdown.
    
        +2 Paragon - "No one else is left." 
        +2 Paragon - "I came here to help."
        +2 Renegade - "I'm recruiting you."
    
    5 - The Colossus
    Reegar is pinned down by a geth colossus.  You can tell him to stay put and 
    perform a Paragon action to keep him out of harm's way, but you may want to 
    have him shooting at the colossus to distract it.  The battlefield is quite 
    large, so you can approach the colossus from several directions.  However, be 
    ready for a counterattack when you get close.  When the colossus is 
    destroyed, check the battlefield for any iridium containers or power cells 
    you may have missed, then head inside to link up with Tali.  Be aware that 
    Kal'Reegar can be killed during this battle.  If you want to be sure that he 
    lives, tell him to stay down.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Is she safe?"
        +2 Paragon - "No. Stay down."
        +15 Paragon - [Interrupt]
        +15 Renegade - "Sounds like a plan."
        +2 Paragon - "Can you join me now?"
        +2 Renegade - "The quarians owe me." 
        +2 Paragon - "Do you need transportation?"
        +2 Renegade - "Tali's with me now."
    
    6 - Debrief
    Tali is not pleased to learn the extent of your involvement with Cerberus, or 
    that you have an AI on board.  She will get set up on the engineering deck if 
    you wish to speak with her.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I agree completely." 
        +2 Paragon - "Feel free to study the ship."

    MESSAGE FROM THE ILLUSIVE MAN
    
    Completing five missions--these can be dossier, loyalty, or N7 missions--
    after the events on Horizon will trigger another message from the Illusive 
    Man: Apparently, a distress call was received from a turian vessel that 
    encountered a Collector ship.  The turians were destroyed, but they managed 
    to disable the Collector vessel during the battle.  The Illusive Man wants 
    you to board the ship and learn anything you can that would help get your 
    team get through the Omega 4 relay.

    SECTION 12 - The Collector Ship                                        21a12c
    
    
    1 - Explore the Ship
    When you arrive on the ship, follow the tunnels until you reach the testing 
    area.  Salvage the Collector technology and open the nearby med kit, then 
    access the terminal to reveal a disturbing secret about the Collectors.  
    After the conversation with EDI, you will get to choose one of three rewards, 
    which will vary depending on your combat class.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Maybe they're better off"
        +2 Renegade - "We can't help them now."
        +2 Paragon - "The Collectors are Protheans!" 
        +2 Paragon - "That's a horrible fate."
        +2 Renegade - "They'd be better off dead."
        New Mission: "Collector Ship"
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    WEAPON UPGRADE
    
    Classes that only use pistols (adepts, engineers, and sentinels) will get to 
    take on one extra weapon ability: They will henceforth be able to use either 
    assault rifles, shotguns, or sniper rifles.  For classes that already have 
    access to one or more of these weapons (soldiers, infiltrators, vanguards) 
    the choice to pick a weapon ability will be replaced by choosing an actual 
    new weapon:
    
        -> Revenant Machine Gun
        -> Claymore Heavy Shotgun
        -> Widow Sniper Rifle
    
    This is the only point at which these weapons can be acquired, so choose 
    wisely.  If you picked up a weapon ability, use the weapons locker nearby to 
    see if you can swap out the default weapon for a better one.  The game should 
    autosave right before this choice, so try out your weapon and reload this 
    save if you decide you want something different.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    2 - To the Command Center
    Grab the power cells and refined element zero.  At the top of the ramps there 
    is some more Collector technology you can salvage, along with a terminal you 
    can access to acquire some research data.  Keep going until you get to the 
    central chamber of the ship, where a seemingly endless number of Collector 
    storage pods are being held.  There is a command console here that you can 
    use to establish a link with the Normandy.
    
        +2 Paragon - "We're okay..."
        +2 Renegade - "Status report - now!"
    
    3 - "This was a trap."
    To no one's great surprise, the ship is not disabled after all.  You will 
    have to fight off a Collector ambush: Each new platform will have either a 
    group of drones--that may become harbingers--or a single scion.  I would 
    advise that you hold your squad back and do not leave the cover of the 
    starting platform.  This fight can be challenging on the higher difficulty 
    levels, so try to focus on killing one enemy at a time as quickly as 
    possible.  Reactivate the controls when all the Collectors are dead.  This 
    will reestablish your connection to EDI, who will lower the platform so you 
    can escape.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Good work."
        +2 Renegade - "About time." 
        +2 Paragon - "Don't jump to conclusions."
        +2 Renegade - "He betrayed us!"
    
    4 - Get to the Shuttle
    It will take the Collector ship some time to power up all of its systems, but 
    after what it did to the original Normandy you ought to get out of there as 
    fast as possible.  Follow EDI's instructions and head through the first door.  
    Salvage the Collector technology and then take cover as a group of drones 
    arrives.  Once they are dead, move left and descend the ramp.  There are more 
    enemies in this area, but you can find some power cells, a med kit, and some 
    element zero on the far wall.
    
    5 - The Praetorian
    Drop down the ledge in the center of the room.  Send your squad up ahead to 
    distract the husks, as you will need to focus all your attention on the 
    praetorian floating towards you.  Take cover at the top of the ramps and use 
    any heavy weapons ammo you have.  As it approaches, circle around the cover 
    so you do not expose yourself.  If you need to reposition, try to wait until 
    it drops to recharge its barrier.
    
    6 - Escape the Ship
    Continue through the door that EDI opens for you.  Off a ledge to the right 
    you can spot the area where you accessed the Collector terminal.  Keep going 
    to the left, salvage some more tech, and grab another research upgrade.  
    There are more Collectors in the next room.  Position your squad in cover, 
    then take the ramp up to the right to flank them.  Eliminate the drones, as 
    well as the scion down the hall.  Continue down the hallway until you 
    encounter a wave of husks.  Biotic powers are useful here because the 
    cooldown is very short, meaning you can disable multiple enemies in quick 
    succession.  The husks are the only thing between you and the shuttle, so as 
    soon as they are dealt with you are home free.
    
    7 - Debrief
    The Illusive Man knew it was a trap, but he was convinced that you had to 
    believe the turian distress call was genuine in order to make the operation a 
    success.  Regardless, information gleaned from the Collector databanks 
    indicates that the Omega 4 relay links to the galactic core--a region that 
    would be extremely dangerous to travel to.  Fortunately, the Illusive Man has 
    a lead on a long-dead derelict Reaper that may have the IFF codes you will 
    need to safely activate the relay and travel to the Collector base.  If you 
    talk with Kelly after the mission she will express her gratitude that the 
    Illusive Man had EDI installed on the new Normandy.

    ~~~~~~~~~~
    THE REAPER
    
    The decision now falls to you: Continue to build up your team, or head 
    directly for the Reaper to recover the IFF codes?
    
    While there is no immediate penalty for delaying this mission, traveling to 
    the Reaper will trigger events related to the endgame.  Once you have been to 
    the Reaper, there will be a limited number of missions you can complete 
    before you must decide whether or not to go through the Omega 4 relay--and 
    this decision does affect who will survive.
    
    If you are interested in completing as much of the game as possible--and 
    having the best ending--You should put off traveling to the Reaper until you 
    have done everything else you want to do.

    SECTION 13 - The Reaper IFF                                            21a13r
    
    
    1 - Board the Reaper
    Now that you are out of dossiers the only thing left to do is travel to the 
    derelict Reaper and retrieve its IFF.  You will board the Reaper from the 
    airlock set up by the Cerberus science team.  There are lots of credits you 
    can nab just inside and to the left, along with the first of several logs 
    detailing the science team's descent into madness.  Access the two medical 
    stations at the end of the hall, and then continue into the Reaper.
    
        New Mission: "Reaper IFF"
    
    2 - Trapped
    The Reaper's kinetic barriers will become active, trapping you inside the 
    ship until you can shut them down.  Bear right and continue down the catwalks 
    to discover what became of the science team: They were all transformed into 
    husks.  This is a good opportunity to use your biotic powers, as pushing the 
    husks off the catwalks will kill them instantly.  Fight through the husks and 
    grab the items at the end of the walkway.  Down the ramp in the next area, be 
    ready to fight a large contingent of husks as well as a scion.  Hack the 
    research terminal at the far end, then head back the way you came to find the 
    airlock on the left.  If you have Tali, Jacob, or Garrus in your squad, you 
    will be able to examine and comment on the dragon's teeth nearby.
    
        +2 Paragon - "They don't deserve this."
        +2 Renegade - "Nobody touch anything."
    
    3 - "Shepard-Commander"
    The next area is teeming with husks, abominations, and scions.  Try to 
    eliminate all the weaker enemies before taking on the scions, as their 
    Shockwave attack can be very dangerous.  Stick to cover to avoid it, but be 
    ready to retreat if they get too close.  You can also shoot the explosive 
    crates to do some extra damage to their armor.  When you finally make it 
    through all the enemies, bypass the door to reach a terminal where you can 
    acquire the Reaper IFF.
    
    4 - The Reaper Core
    In the final area you must destroy the Reaper Core while fighting off hordes 
    of husks and abominations.  Heavy weapons are useful for doing a lot of 
    damage to the core quickly, as it will periodically close and you will be 
    unable to affect it.  You will also need to direct your squad members 
    manually to attack the core, as they will not target it on their own.  Husks 
    will spawn on all sides, so put your team in the middle of the area and do 
    your best to protect them from the husks.  Once the core is destroyed, you 
    will escape the ship.

        Mission Complete: "Reaper IFF"
    
    5 - Activate the Geth (Optional)
    Back on the Normandy, you will have to decide what to do with the geth you 
    captured.  Cerberus will pay you if you hand it over to them for research, 
    but if you decide it is worth the risk, you can go down to the AI core 
    (though the medical bay) and reactivate it.  The geth will explain that there 
    are two geth factions: Those who followed Saren and the Reapers, and those 
    who did not.  It is a member of those who did not worship Sovereign, and will 
    ally with you as long as you are fighting what it calls "the heretics."  
    Since you need a way to address is, the geth will go by the name Legion.
    
        +15 Paragon - "I want to talk to it first."
        +15 Renegade - "Cerberus gets the geth."
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    INTEGRATING THE IFF
    
    It will take some time to integrate the IFF into the Normandy's systems.  To 
    be more precise, you will be able to complete (at most) a further two 
    missions before you will able to activate the Omega 4 relay.  These can be 
    dossiers, loyalty mission, or N7 assignments.
    
    However, after completing said missions, the decision will fall to you 
    whether or not to enter the relay immediately.  What you encounter on the 
    other side--and who lives or dies--will depend on your decision.
    
    The rest of the primary mission walkthrough will be included in the secrets 
    section at the very end of this guide. (34dwal)  Continue reading to see the 
    loyalty missions for each squad member, and the other optional assignments.

    THE GIFT OF GREATNESS                                                  21b1gi
    
    
    1 - Jacob's Father
    Jacob will ask to speak with you about a message he received.  Apparently, 
    the ship his father served on just sent out a distress signal--after being 
    missing for nearly a decade.  When you get a chance, he would like the 
    opportunity to investigate the crash site.
    
        New Mission: "Jacob: The Gift of Greatness"
    
    2 - The Crash Site
    Go to the Alpha Draconis System and land on 2175 Aeia.  Approach the crash 
    site of the SSV Hugo Gernsback.  There are some spare parts near the wreck 
    that you can salvage.  Talk to the beacon VI to learn more about what 
    happened after the crash.  You can find some more logs inside the ship, along 
    with a PDA you can hack.
    
    3 - The Hunters
    Further up the path you will encounter one of the survivors.  Forced to eat 
    the toxic local flora, she has lost much of her mental capacity.  She warns 
    you about "the hunters," the ones who are rebelling against the leadership of 
    Jacob's father.  When these hunters arrive, you must perform a Paragon action 
    to save her life.  Kill them, and then salvage the spare parts nearby before 
    moving on.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Calm down!" 
        +5 Paragon - [Interrupt]
    
    4 - The Settlement
    Up the hill you will find a group of survivors--all female.  Examine the 
    statue in the center of the settlement, and pick up the med kit nearby.  
    There are some more spare parts you can salvage on the right side of the 
    encampment, and a PDA in the center you can access for some credits.  Kill 
    the mechs that approach, and then speak with the doctor to learn more about 
    what happened after the crash.  Rig the inactive mech to explode to open up 
    the path out of the camp.
    
        +2 Renegade - "We're waiting." 
        +2 Paragon - "Sounds like he cracked."
        +2 Renegade - "Harsh, but defendable." 
        +2 Paragon - "Does this make sense to you?"
        +2 Renegade - "They're fighting back now.
    
    5 - The Leader's Defenses
    To reach Taylor, you will have to fight your way through his automated 
    defense mechs.  Do not miss the chance to scan the heavy pistol up ahead to 
    acquire some research data, or salvage the spare parts nearby.  There are 
    more spare parts and some power cells outside the walls to Taylor's base.  
    Inside the outer wall you will have to take on his squad of brainwashed 
    guards, along with a single heavy mech.  When all the guards are dead, grab 
    the element zero and some credits from the PDA on the ground, then proceed 
    through the door.
    
    6 - Acting Captain
    Jacob will confront his father about the crimes he committed against the 
    other survivors, but the ultimate decision of what to do with him will fall 
    to you.  You can arrest him and leave him for the Alliance, give him a pistol 
    to take his own life, or let the group of feral hunters have their way with 
    him.  No matter how you decide, you will earn Jacob's loyalty.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I'm Shepard. You know Jacob."
        +2 Renegade - "Never Mind. Explain Yourself." 
        +2 Paragon - "Let's hear the truth"
        +2 Renegade - "Surprised?" 
        +2 Paragon - "A decade, Taylor. Why?"
        +2 Renegade - "Touching, but I don't buy it." 
        +2 Paragon - "We can undo the damage." / "You'll answer for this."
        +2 Renegade - "Tempting, but taken too far." 
        +15 Paragon - "He can't escape the law now."
        +15 Renegade - "I'd shoot him."
        +5 Paragon - "Leave him in the hell he made."
        +5 Renegade - "Leave him in the hell he made."
        +2 Paragon - "Good job"
        +2 Renegade - "We'd better be."

        +2 Renegade - "To help or mess with him?"

    1 - Miranda's Sister
    Miranda has received some disturbing news.  When she escaped from her father 
    several years ago, she took her twin sister with her.  Oriana was meant to 
    have a normal life on Illium, but it seems that her father's agents have 
    tracked her down.  Miranda has gotten Cerberus to relocate the family 
    somewhere safe, but she wants to go to Illium and oversee the operation 
    personally.
    
        New Mission: "Miranda: The Prodigal"
    
    2 - Miranda's Contact
    Travel to Illium and meet with Lanteia at Eternity.  It seems Miranda's 
    friend, Niket, has been tipped off about a group of Eclipse mercenaries sent 
    to capture Miranda's sister.  The new plan is for Niket to escort Oriana and 
    get her off the planet safely, while you and your team distract the mercs.
    
        +2 Paragon - "What should we do?"
        +2 Renegade - "We're altering the plan?"
    
    3 - Eclipse
    Your shuttle will arrive at the cargo area, where the Eclipse are unloading 
    troops for the operation.  The merc leader will give you a chance to leave, 
    but a fight is inevitable.  You can perform a Renegade action to kill him and 
    several others before the fight starts.  Battle through the heavies and 
    engineers, and take the elevator around the next corner.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I'm with Miranda."
        +2 Renegade - "Get lost. Now."
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
        +2 Paragon - "We need to get to your sister."
    
    4 - To the Transport Terminal
    There is a PDA in a room to the right.  Fight your way past the next group of 
    mercs, then pick up the med kit and scan the submachine gun for some research 
    data.  Past the crates is a locker on the left containing some credits.  
    There is also a terminal you can hack in a room on the other side of the 
    trench.  Continue around the crates, and eventually you will come upon 
    another terminal on your left.  Around the next corner is the elevator to the 
    transport terminal.  Just clear out the vanguards and grab the medi-gel from 
    the medical station.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Maybe you're right."
        +2 Renegade - "Niket betrayed you."
    
    5 - Niket
    At the top of the elevator you come upon Niket and Enyala--proof enough that 
    he has betrayed Miranda.  You can perform a Paragon action to stop Miranda 
    from killing him, but he dies either way.  The fight with Enyala takes place 
    in a fairly large area, with three corridors between you and the elevator.  A 
    good strategy is to camp at the middle path and send one squad member to 
    either side to keep them from flanking you.  There is a med kit on the right, 
    and a terminal near the elevator containing some extra credits.
    
        +2 Paragon - "What happens now?"
        +2 Renegade - "Kill him." 
        +2 Paragon - "We can solve this peacefully." 
        +5 Paragon - [Interrupt]
        +2 Paragon - "You couldn't have."
        +2 Renegade - "Live and learn." 
        +2 Paragon - "You would've regretted it." 
        +2 Paragon - "Don't blame yourself."
    
    6 - Oriana
    Miranda's sister is safe.  You can leave, but Miranda will regret it if you 
    do not convince her to go talk with her sister first. 
    
        +15 Paragon - "You should speak with her."
        +15 Renegade - "If you say so."

    1 - Jack's Childhood
    Jack was raised in a Cerberus facility for biotics: She and others like her 
    were tortured and experimented on in an effort to make more powerful humans.  
    She has located the facility in the Cerberus files you gave her, and wants to 
    go there so she can destroy it.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Settle Down."
        +2 Renegade - "We're going in."
        New Mission: "Jack: Subject Zero"
    
    2 - Explore the Facility
    When you get to Pragia, follow the ramps down to get out of the rain.  Hack 
    the terminal in the first room.  The security console in the next area makes 
    it appear that the Illusive Man was not fully aware of what was going on at 
    the Pragia facility.  Continue through the door and fight off the varren at 
    the bottom of the ramp.  There is a blood stain on the ground you can examine 
    to learn about the arena in which subjects were pitted against each other.  
    Grab the med kit in the next hallway.  There is a security console you can 
    access to view another log, this time making it seem that Jack's memories 
    about her escape are not entirely accurate.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Maybe there was more to it."
        +2 Renegade - "Or not."
    
    3 - The Blood Pack
    Head through the door and descend the steps.  Bypass the door on the left to 
    find some element zero.  When you reach the morgue, you will find it crawling 
    with Blood Pack mercenaries.  After the initial group is defeated, be ready 
    for a second group attacking from the left side of the room.  Before you 
    leave, grab the PDA in the alcove on the right.  Bypass the door.  In the 
    hallway with the bunk beds you can salvage a circuit board on the right side.  
    Grab the med kit on the walkway with the two-way mirror, and then proceed 
    inside to access some more logs and some power cells.  Don't miss the 
    research terminal, which you can hack to acquire some upgrade data.  In the 
    next room you will encounter Kureck and more mercenaries.  Clear them out and 
    grab the credits from the secure container at the back of the room, then 
    continue through the door on the right.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Don't blame yourself."
        +2 Renegade - "Makes sense."
        +2 Paragon - "You were distracted."
        +2 Paragon - "Why are you here?"
        +2 Renegade - "Get ready to fight."
    
    4 - Aresh
    It seems Jack was not the only survivor.  Another subject has returned to the 
    facility, and wants to start it up again.  Whether you tell Jack to kill or 
    spare Aresh, she will do the opposite.  You will need to persuade her or 
    perform an action to get your way.  Afterwards you can take a look around the 
    room to learn more about Jack's life before her escape.
    
        +2 Paragon - "He was drawn here, like you." 
        +15 Paragon - "Killing him changes nothing." [Charm]
        +15 Renegade - "Do it." [Intimidate]
        +5 Paragon - "Leave him alone."

    Your two companions will get into a heated argument after you complete both 
    of their loyalty missions.  You must use a persuasive option to appease both 
    parties, otherwise you will have to side with either Jack or Miranda.  This 
    will cause you to lose the loyalty of the slighted team member.
    
        +15 Paragon - "This is a distraction."
        +15 Renegade - "This ends now!"
    
    The only way to regain their loyalty is to speak with them individually and

    1 - Mordin's Pupil
    Before starting the clinic on Omega, Mordin led a team which was responsible 
    for modifying the krogan genophage.  A member of that team has recently gone 
    missing on Tuchanka.  Mordin believes he has been kidnapped by Blood Pack 
    mercenaries, and he wants you to help rescue him.
    
        New Mission: "Mordin: Old Blood"
    
    2 - The Scout Master
    Travel to Tuchanka and find the Scout Master.  He can tell you that the 
    salarian has been taken by Clan Weyrloc, and will provide you with 
    transportation to get to their base.
    
    3 - The Weyrloc Base
    When you arrive, follow the path through the debris, eliminating the local 
    predators and Blood Pack soldiers.  Along the way you can find a med kit and 
    some refined iridium.  Inside the entrance you can examine a dead human who 
    shows signs of gruesome experimentation.  Continue down the steps and pick up 
    the iridium on the right.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I'm stopping this."
    
    4 - The Clanspeaker
    Proceed through the door to encounter the clanspeaker for clan Weyrloc.  He 
    will give a long speech about how curing the genophage will make his clan the 
    dominant force in the galaxy.  At any point during this speech you can 
    perform a Renegade action to kill him--and you may as well, because you will 
    have to fight the enemies in this room anyway.  Either shift left to ensure 
    the krogan coming down the stairs do not outflank you, or move to cover by 
    the ramp to cut them off.  Grab the iridium in this room, then continue up 
    the ramps and through the door.
    
        +2 Renegade - "Look what I've done so far." 
        +2 Paragon - "No one else has to die."
        +2 Paragon - "Why not try diplomacy?" 
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
    
    5 - The Laboratory
    In the next area you will find evidence of genophage research and 
    experimentation, including a dead female krogan.  You can salvage some 
    credits here, pick up some iridium, and hack a terminal to acquire some 
    research data.  Continue through the door.  The room on the right with the 
    sick krogan has a datapad you can hack.  Continue down the hall and into the 
    next area, where you will have to fight through some more Blood Pack enemies.  
    Grab the heavy weapons ammo on this level, and then descend the stairs.  
    There is a locked crate containing some credits on this level.  Continue 
    through the door and down the stairs to find a research terminal you can hack 
    as well.
    
        +2 Renegade - "We killed dozens already."
        +2 Paragon - "Like undo the genophage."
        +2 Renegade - "Great. Talk about the corpse."
        +2 Paragon - "The genophage was wrong."
        +2 Renegade - "The genophage was right."
        +2 Paragon - "That's garbage"
        +2 Renegade - "I agree with you." 
    
    6 - Maelon
    It turns out that Maelon is not a prisoner after all: He is working with the 
    krogan to cure the genophage.  Mordin will kill him unless you intervene.  
    You can then convince him whether to keep Maelon's research data or destroy 
    it for good.
    
        +2 Paragon - "He didn't need rescuing."
        +2 Renegade - "He betrayed you." 
        +2 Paragon - "What now, Mordin?."

    Grunt is having medical problems: He cannot control his urge to fight.  You 
    will need to seek out other krogan on Tuchanka and learn what can be done to 
    help Grunt.
    
        New Mission: "Grunt: Rite of Passage"
    
    2 - The Shaman
    Travel to Tuchanka and speak with the clan leader about Grunt.  Apparently, 
    he is not sick, he simply needs to go through a ritual known as the Rite so 
    he can become a full member of a clan.  He will direct you to the Shaman 
    upstairs, who will allow you to perform the Rite.
    
        +2 Renegade - "Does that change anything?"
        +2 Paragon - "His call."
        +2 Paragon - "We have permission."

        +2 Renegade "So you're fearful." [Intimidate]
    
    3 - The Keystone
    Here you will face three waves of enemies.  Activating the keystone triggers 
    each wave.  Before you begin, check around the battlefield: Collect all the 
    credits from the dead corpses and turbine parts (though you should leave the 
    med kits and power cells until you need them).  The first wave consists 
    entirely of varren.  Order your squad to stand in the open, and use your 
    powers to disable and kill each enemy as it approaches.  Klixen make up the 
    second wave.  They are tougher, but a bit slower than the varren.  Finally, a 
    thresher maw appears.  Now is the time to use any heavy weapons you have.  
    The thresher maw's attacks can destroy most of the flimsy cover, so stick to 
    the solid stone walls to avoid its attacks.  Be ready to reposition to a new 
    location when it shifts from one side of the battlefield to the other.  You 
    can complete the Rite by simply staying alive for five minutes, but there is 
    an achievement for taking down the thresher maw.
    
    4 - Clan Gatatog
    Uvenk wants to use Grunt--but as a tool rather than a full member of his 
    clan.  When the fight breaks out, flank around to the right side to grab some 
    med kits.  There are also two Urdnot corpses you can loot if you get to them 
    before the battle concludes.  When you return from the Rite, Grunt will be 
    accepted into a clan, and allowed to serve under you.  This should put an end 
    to any emotional instability.  You will also be granted some research data 
    and a discount on items sold by Fortack.

    Samara reveals that the target she was hunting on Illium is an Ardat-Yakshi,

    nervous system of any individual she mates with, a process that is intensely 
    pleasurable and ultimately fatal for her victims.  The target, named Morinth, 
    is also Samara's daughter.  She has tracked Morinth to Omega, and would like 
    to travel there to complete her mission.

    on the station, and can point you in the direction of her most recent victim.  
    Use your map to find the apartments and head there to meet Diana, the 
    victim's mother.  Examine everything in Nev's room, as this information will 
    be useful later.  Head to the VIP area of Afterlife, and use the code word

    3 - Attracting Attention
    The goal inside the club is to attract Morinth's attention, and each 
    interaction you have with another person in the club will either gain 
    Morinth's interest or lose it.  Start by talking to Vij, who can tell you 
    about Morinth's favorite band.
    
        +2 Renegade - "Get away from me."
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    MORINTH'S INTEREST
    
    Here is a list of people you can talk to in the club.  You only have one 
    chance to do the correct thing with each of them.
    
        Edwin - The bartender.  Offer to buy everyone a round of drinks, or 
            persuade him to do so.  Do not just tell him to give drinks for free.
    
            +5 Paragon - "Treat your customers." [Charm]
    
        Horftin - Will ask you to say "terminal" and "eternity" to Florit.  Go 
            over and say the words in that order.  Do not reverse the order.
    
        Meln - A turian harassing one of the dancers.  Step in and put a stop to 
            it.  Do not just walk away.
    
        Verf - Krogan minding his own business.  Offer to take it outside.  Do 
            not fling an ineffectual insult.
    
            +5 Renegade - "Let's step outside." [Intimidate]
    
        Vertin - One of two turians planning to mug people later in the evening.  
            Insult them to provoke a fight.  Do not say you are here to stop 
            their plan.
    
            +5 Renegade - "Not much." [Intimidate]
    
        Waera - Asari on the dance floor.  Just dance with her.  Do not brag 
            about how good you are.
    
    If you fail too many times in your interactions, Morinth will become 
    disinterested and leave.  You will have blown your chance and Samara will not 
    be pleased.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    4 - Talking with Morinth (Optional)
    If you get Morinth's attention, she will invite you to sit with her.  Now is 
    the time to use the information you gleaned from Nev and Vij.  Avoid 
    discussing family or justicars.  When you discuss music, bring up Expel 10 
    and Hallex.  When talking about art, mention that you like Forta and Vaenia.  
    Finally, when discussing travel, say that you enjoy going to dangerous 
    places.  If you do not provide her with stimulating conversation, Morinth 
    will excuse herself and Samara will lose her chance.
    
    5 - "Want to get out of here?" (Optional)
    If you interest Morinth enough, she will invite you back to her apartment.  
    Be sure to scan the assault rifle on the wall for some research data.  When 
    you sit down to talk with her, you must use persuasive options to avoid 
    falling under her spell.  Regardless, Samara will arrive and the two will 
    duel.  If you were able to resist Morinth's charms, you will have the option 
    of choosing between them.  If you elect to kill Samara, Morinth will join you 
    in her place, and will impersonate Samara around the other crew members.
    
        +30 Paragon - "Kill Morinth"
        +45 Renegade - "Kill Samara"
        +2 Paragon - "Are you okay?"

    1 - Garrus's Reprisal
    Garrus has tracked down the member of his team who betrayed him and got the 
    others killed.  He wants to go to the Citadel and exact his revenge.
    
        New Mission: "Garrus: Eye for an Eye"
    
    2 - Finding Fade
    When you arrive on the Citadel, speak with Captain Bailey, who will point you 
    in the direction of the warehouse down on level 26.  There you will encounter 
    a volus and his krogan bodyguards.  When the contact finds out that you want 
    him to help you find someone, he will order his guards to kill you.  You can 
    perform a Renegade action to take them out, but they will not attack you 
    regardless.  The contact will direct you to Harkin, a former C-Sec agent who 
    runs his operation out of the factory district.
    
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
        +2 Renegade - "Shut up." 
        +2 Renegade - "I can't wait."
    
    3 - Trailing Harkin
    Use the rapid transit system to get to the factory district.  Harkin will 
    flee when you arrive, and you must fight your way through his guards.  These 
    are mostly LOKI mechs and Blue Suns troopers.  Head through the door and 
    search the trash for some credits.  Grab the med kit and then make your way 
    through the stacked crates.  While in the factory, be alert for mechs and 
    soldiers getting dropped off in large containers on either side of the 
    battlefield.  There is a wall safe containing some credits off to the left.  
    Continue around the corner and fight your way forward to the bridge controls.  
    Grab all the supplies, and then lower the bridge to continue the fight.  Look 
    out for the YMIR mech that will get dropped in the midst of the other 
    soldiers.  Inside the next room is a terminal you can hack for a research 
    upgrade.  You can also pause here to talk with Garrus about the mission.
    
    4 - The Warehouse
    Fight your way through the remaining mechs and climb the platforms.  You can 
    hack a PDA off to the right to collect some credits.  Before you can get to 
    Harkin you will have to take on two YMIR mechs at once.  Retreat to cover and 
    focus all your attacks on one mech at a time.  Remember that a fatal headshot 
    to a heavy mech causes a massive explosion.  When the mechs are dead, climb 
    up the platforms on the left to reach Harkin.  Garrus will force Harkin to 
    give up Sidonis, and will shoot him unless you perform a Paragon action.
    
        +2 Renegade - "Ouch." 
        +2 Paragon - "Be reasonable." 
        +5 Paragon [Interrupt]
        +2 Paragon - "That wasn't necessary. "
        +2 Renegade - "Shut up."
    
    5 - Sidonis
    Garrus will get set up at the meeting place.  He needs you to go over and 
    talk to Sidonis to get him in position.  To allow Garrus to take the shot, 
    simply step out of the way at any point during the conversation.  The only 
    way to keep Sidonis alive is to keep blocking Garrus's view.  You will need 
    to perform a Paragon action, and then persuade Garrus to let Sidonis go.
    
        +2 Paragon - "You Okay?"
        +2 Renegade - "He's not worth it."
        +2 Paragon - "I don't know." / "You sure about this?"
        +2 Renegade - "You bet."
        +2 Paragon - "Give me a chance."

        +2 Paragon - "You're lucky."
        +2 Renegade - "Leave."
        +2 Paragon - "It's for the best."
        +2 Paragon - "I understand."

    1 - Thane's Son
    Thane has received information that his son is on the Citadel, and has 
    accepted an assassination contract.  He would like to go to the Citadel and 
    stop the assassination from occurring.
    
        New Mission: "Thane: Sins of the Father"
    
    2 - Mouse
    Talk with Bailey when you get to the Citadel.  He can point you in the 
    direction of Mouse, who can be found up on level 28.  Mouse is very reluctant 
    to give up any information, so you will either have to perform a Renegade 
    action, use your persuasive options, or pay him 3000 credits for the 
    information.  Mouse will tell you about Elias Kelham, the man who hired 
    Thane's son.
    
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
        +5 Paragon - "We'll protect you." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade - "I'm losing patience." [Intimidate]
    
    3 - Enhanced Interrogation
    Return to Bailey, who will agree to arrest Kelham and give you a few minutes 
    alone with him.  One way or another, Kelham will give up the information--it 
    is just faster if you get violent.  Kelham will tell you about Joram Talid, 
    the turian he wanted to have killed.  Bailey will have someone take you to 
    where you can find him.
    
        +5 Paragon - "I'm a Spectre. Start talking." [Intimidate]
        +5 Renegade - "I'm a Spectre. Start talking." [Intimidate]
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt] x3
        +5 Paragon - "We'll sweeten the pot." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade - "You should talk to us." [Intimidate]
        +2 Paragon - "That's democracy for you."
        +2 Renegade - "Not my problem."
    
    4 - Following Talid
    You will be positioned on the catwalks above Talid's position.  Periodically, 
    Thane will contact you asking for an update on Talid.  You will need to have 
    him on your screen in order to send a report to Thane.  Start by grabbing the 
    datapad on the right, then update Thane.  Head through the door on your left.  
    Talid will stop once more, and then further down the street he will send his 
    bodyguard into Aquila.  Set up on the opposite side of the street to have the 
    best view of him.  When the bodyguard concludes his business, they will move 
    quickly, so be ready.  Their next stop will be the bar with the rotating 
    martini glasses.  After shaking down the bartender he will continue into the 
    next room where they will talk with a group of krogan.  When he gets to this 
    point, update Thane and continue through the door.  You can perform a 
    Renegade action on the stock boy in the next room (or lie your way past him), 
    but you are in no danger of losing Talid at this point.
    
        5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
        5 Paragon - "I'm a health inspector." [Charm]
        5 Renegade - "There's a bomb." [Intimidate]
        5 Paragon - "I'm lost." [Charm]
        5 Renegade - "You can't stop me." [Intimidate]
        5 Paragon - "Here's the truth." [Charm]
        5 Renegade - "A life is at stake." [Intimidate]

        | loyalty if you fail to stop the       |
        | assassination.                        |
        |_______________________________________|
    
    5 - Standoff with Kolyat (Optional)
    Kolyat's assassination attempt does not go as planned.  He will chase Talid 
    back to his apartment and hold him at gunpoint when you arrive.  If you do 
    not perform a Paragon action to defuse the situation peacefully, you will 
    have to shoot either Kolyat (a nonlethal hit) or Talid.  When things calm 
    down you will have the chance to persuade Bailey to knock down the charges 
    against Kolyat so he will not have to go to prison.

    1 - Tali's Hearing
    Tali has received some disturbing news: A message from the Migrant Fleet has 
    informed her that she is being charged with treason, a crime punishable by 
    exile.  She is being given the opportunity to return to the fleet and defend 
    herself, but she needs you to go with her.

        |_______________________________________|
    
    2 - Arrival on the Rayya
    Travel to the Valhallan Threshold and dock with the migrant fleet.  Follow 
    the hallway until you reach Shala'Raan, one of the members of the fleet's 
    Admiralty Board.  Because she is a close friend of the Zorah family, she will 
    not be able to cast judgment at the hearing.  Additionally, Tali is being 
    tried as a member of the Normandy--meaning you, as her captain, will have to 
    speak on her behalf.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I owe Tali a great deal." 
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
        +2 Paragon - "Calm down."
        +2 Renegade - "It's called Legion."

        +5 Renegade - "If it acts up, I'll kill it." [Intimidate]
        +2 Paragon - "I'll do this for Tali."
        +2 Paragon - "I'm honored."
        +2 Renegade - "This is a terrible idea."
    
    3 - Surprising News
    At the hearing it will be revealed that the lab ship where Tali's father was 
    working has been seized by the geth.  The Board can see no explanation except 
    that Tali sent back--knowingly or otherwise--active pieces of geth which 
    subsequently multiplied and took over the ship.  Tali's father and the crew 
    of the Alarei are presumed dead.
    
        +5 Paragon "It's my pleasure." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade "Look at her record." [Intimidate]
        +2 Renegade "What's the point?"
        +5 Paragon "We need to help." [Charm]
        +5 Renegade "You've got a lot of nerve." [Intimidate]
        +2 Paragon "We must. For Tali's sake."
        +2 Renegade "If it proves her loyalty."
    
    4 - Board the Alarei
    Tali will volunteer to take back the Alarei from the geth.  Recapturing the 
    ship is the best hope of finding evidence to exonerate her when the hearing 
    reconvenes.  Before you leave you can talk with many of the quarians, 
    including the admirals who will be deciding Tali's fate.  If you left Veetor 
    return to the Flotilla, you will be able to speak to him as well.  When you 
    are ready to leave, take the exit on the right side of the chamber and follow 
    the corridors to the shuttle guard.
    
        +2 Paragon - "You went too far."
        +2 Renegade - "Thanks. Will it help?"
        +2 Paragon - "I hope you feel better."
    
    5 - Recapture the Ship
    On the Alarei, keep on the lookout for laptops, which you can access to 
    acquire hefty sums of credits.  There are also a few quarian logs you can 
    access to learn more about what happened on the ship prior to the geth 
    takeover.  When fighting the geth, Tali's AI Hacking ability is especially 
    useful.  Try to take down the shields of the more powerful hunters and 
    destroyers, and then hack them to make them turn on the lesser geth troopers.  
    Head through the first room and enter the door on the left to find a medical 
    station and a repair drone you can examine to learn about the kinds of 
    materials Tali sent back to her father.  Head down the hall and hack the 
    monitor in the room on the right to receive some research data.  Take the 
    stairs up to the next floor and fight your way through the geth until you 
    reach a room where you can descend once again.
    
        +2 Paragon - "That's a bad idea."
        +2 Renegade - "That's a worthy promise."
        +2 Paragon - "Then find another world." / "Settle down somewhere else."
        +2 Renegade - "So take it back, then." / "It's worth it."
    
    6 - Rael's Legacy
    In the next hallway is the lifeless body of Rael'Zorah.  You can perform a 
    Paragon action to comfort Tali.  Head up the stairs and eliminate the 
    remaining geth: a prime, a hunter, and two troopers.  You can pick up a model 
    flotilla ship for your room on the Normandy off to the right side when you 
    enter.  There is also a laptop to the left containing some credits.  Access 
    the quarian console in the center of the room to acquire the evidence proving 
    that Rael was acting without Tali's knowledge.
    
        +5 Paragon - [Interrupt]
        +2 Paragon - "This wasn't his choice."
        +2 Renegade - "We'll destroy the geth." 
        +2 Paragon - "He did what he could."
        +2 Renegade - "The geth cut him off."
        +2 Paragon - "He wanted to keep his promise."
        +2 Renegade - "That's what we needed." / "That sounded bad."
    
    7 - The Hearing
    Return to the hearing, which has reconvened without you.  You have several 
    choices here: Submit the evidence to clear Tali's name, withhold the 
    evidence, or use your persuasive options to convince the Admiralty Board that 
    Tali would never betray her people.  If you saved Kal'Reegar and allowed 
    Veetor to return to the Flotilla, you can also rally the crowd to Tali's 
    defense.  The admirals will render their decision, and Tali will either be 
    exonerated or exiled.  You can talk to the various quarians before you leave 
    the Rayya.
    
        +2 Paragon - "You should pardon Tali."
        +2 Renegade - "You could have waited." 
        +30 Paragon - "I don't need evidence." [Charm]
        +30 Renegade - "You're wasting our time!" [Intimidate]
        +30 Paragon - "[Rally the Crowd.]"
        +30 Paragon - "We have no evidence."
        +30 Renegade - "Yes. Here is the evidence." 
        +2 Paragon - "Don't go to war." / "She's with me."
        +2 Renegade - "Good luck in the war."
        +2 Paragon - "Your ideas are wrong."
        +2 Renegade - "All that matters is victory." 
        +2 Paragon - "Keep pushing for peace."
        +2 Renegade - "You need to go to war." 
        +2 Paragon - "I support Tali."
        +2 Renegade - "She had no choice!" 
        +2 Paragon - "This was Rael's fault." / "I'm sorry."
        +2 Renegade - "You don't want to know." / "That's not my problem."

    1 - Legion's Consensus
    Legion will ask to speak with you: He has learned of a virus that the 
    heretics plan to use to make all geth believe as they do.  He wishes to use 
    Normandy's stealth capabilities to approach the geth base where the virus is 
    being developed, and destroy it.
    
        New Mission: "Legion: A House Divided"
    
    2 - Haratar
    While on the ship, breaking the green data streams by walking over them will 
    alert all geth in the room to your presence.  In each of these rooms you must 
    destroy one or more geth hubs to unlock the door so you can proceed.  Each of 
    these hubs can also be looted for credits after it has been destroyed.  You 
    will also encounter inactive rocket drones.  Legion can override these from a 
    distance, and they will attack any enemies in the area (even ones you have 
    used AI Hacking on.)  However, they will only be active for a short time 
    before self-destructing, and there is a limit to how many turrets Legion can 
    hack at once, so use them wisely.  Be on the lookout for a geth terminal you 
    can hack to acquire some research data.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Rewriting is unethical."
        +2 Renegade - "They're just machines."
        +2 Paragon - "The heretics are part of you."
        +2 Renegade - "Why worry about brainwashing?"
        +2 Paragon - "That could be traumatizing." / 
        +2 Renegade - "You feel guilty." 
        +2 Paragon - "You'd lose that perspective."
        +2 Renegade - "Their judgment sucks." 
        +2 Paragon - "Things change."
        +2 Renegade - "You were naive." 
        +2 Paragon - "It's not your fault."
        +2 Renegade - "It's their fault."
    
    3 - The Core
    Eventually you will come to the core of the ship, where Legion will be begin 
    the process of analyzing the data in the geth systems.  This will alert the 
    station, and you will have to fight off several waves of geth until the 
    process is completed.  Tell your team to take cover in the center of the room 
    where you can fire at the geth that come up the ramps to either side.  There 
    are also several rocket drones you can hack, mainly on the level below.
    
    4 - Escape the Station
    When the datamine is complete, you will have the choice of simply destroying 
    the station, or uploading a modified virus that will rewrite the heretics to 
    be like the other geth.  When you have made your decision, the door to the 
    right will open, which you can use to escape the station.  You do not have to 
    travel far, but you will have to contend with several troopers, and a geth 
    prime guarding the exit.

    TALI AND LEGION
    
    Once again, two of your companions will have a tense standoff.  You will have 
    to use a persuasive option to appease both parties, otherwise you will have 
    to side with either Tali or Legion.  This will cause you to lose the loyalty 
    of the slighted team member.
    
        +15 Paragon - "You're both right."
        +15 Renegade - "Knock this crap off."
    
    The only way to regain their loyalty is to speak with them individually and 
    use a persuasive option to get them to forgive you.

    1 - Zaeed's Unfinished Business
    When you first acquire Zaeed on Omega, he will tell you about some business 
    he needs to take care of in the Ismar Frontier.  Travel to the Faia System 
    and land on Zorya to begin the mission.  The situation is this: Some Blue 
    Suns mercs are running a refinery using human slaves as workers.  Officially 
    you are here to liberate the workers, but Zaeed also has an ulterior motive 
    for coming to this planet in particular...
    
        +2 Paragon - "Welcome aboard."
        +2 Renegade - "Report to the Normandy" 
        +2 Paragon - "No. He didn't."
        +2 Renegade - "There's always a catch." 
        +2 Paragon - "We can do that."
        +2 Renegade - "If there's time."
        Mission Complete: "Dossier: The Veteran"
        New Mission: "Zaeed: The Price of Revenge"
    
    2 - Perimeter Defenses
    Your shuttle will draw the attention of the Suns when you land.  At the 
    southern checkpoint you will run into a few troopers, but do not push ahead 
    too quickly or their reinforcements will surround you.  Keep moving until you 
    get to the bridge, where it will be revealed that Zaeed founded the Blue Suns 
    with another merc named Vido Santiago.  Vido betrayed Zaeed and tried to kill 
    him, so now Zaeed is back for revenge.  Keep going until you reach the large 
    door to the facility.
    
        +2 Paragon - "You know this guy?"
        +2 Renegade - "Vido sounds dangerous."
    
    3 - The Refinery
    Zaeed will start a fire that threatens to destroy the refinery and everyone 
    inside.  Continue along the walkway until you encounter a worker who warns 
    you that the entire complex is in danger of exploding unless someone can shut 
    off the gas valves.  You will have to decide whether to enter the refinery 
    and save the workers, or pursue Vido to make sure he does not escape.
    
        +2 Paragon - "That was unnecessary."
        +5 Paragon - [Interrupt] 
        +2 Renegade - "Warn me next time." 
        +2 Paragon - "We came to save these people."
        +2 Renegade - "You do what I tell you." 
        +2 Paragon - "Keep to the mission, or else."
        +2 Renegade - "If that's what you need."
        +2 Paragon - "You suggest we leave them?"
        +2 Renegade - "You must really want him dead." 
        +15 Paragon - "Forget Loyalty. We save them."
        +15 Renegade - "Zaeed's right. Vido must die."

        |                                       |
        | TIP - You get a heavy weapons upgrade |
        | for saving the workers, or an assault |
        | rifle upgrade for going after Vido.   |
        |_______________________________________|
    
    4 - Save the Workers (Optional)
    If you chose to save the refinery workers, bypass the door to get inside.  
    Continue up the stairs.  There are fires everywhere in the next room, but 
    there are several fuel control points you can use to clear a path.  Take the 
    stairs on the far side of the room, then cross the platform and activate the 
    fire extinguisher systems in the observation room.  There is also a research 
    terminal you can access for a heavy weapons ammo upgrade.  With the 
    sprinklers on you can continue through the next door.  Follow the catwalk to 
    the end, and then drop down onto the pile of containers.
    
    5 - Follow Vido (Optional)
    If you chose to stop Vido, you will have to fight your way through another 
    group of Suns.  There is a room ahead where you can salvage servos for some 
    credits, and access a research terminal for an assault rifle upgrade.  There 
    are more troopers in the next area, but nothing else worth mentioning.
    
    6 - Escape the Refinery
    Regardless of the path you chose, you are now in the same location.  Grab the 
    refined Palladium on the left, and pick up the M-451 Firestorm heavy weapon 
    off the floor in the next room.  Try it out on the two turians around the 
    corner, and if you do not like it simply swap it out at the weapons locker 
    nearby.  There are also some power cells you can use to replenish your heavy 
    ammo.  There are a few things to worry about in the next room in addition to 
    the usual complement of troopers: There are two tanks overhead which will 
    begin to move on rails, spraying burning gas as they go.  Stay clear when 
    they pass by, or shoot them down when they are over a group of enemies.  
    There is also a YMIR mech on the back wall which will activate when attacked-
    -or when the tanks are destroyed.  There are some salvageable bits in alcoves 
    to either side of the room, and a med kit in the center.  Proceed through the 
    large door when all the enemies have been dealt with.
    
    7 - Vido's Fate
    Whether Vido lives or dies is dependent on whether you took the time to 
    rescue the refinery workers.  If he escapes, the only way to gain Zaeed's 
    loyalty is by using your persuasive options.

    1 - Kasumi's Lost Love
    With Kasumi's dossier in hand, travel to the Citadel.  You can acquire her by 
    interacting with the advertisement on the right side of the security 
    checkpoint when you arrive.  Kasumi's loyalty is dependent on helping her 
    recover an item stolen from a close friend of hers.  The target's name is 
    Donovan Hock, a wealthy arms-dealer living on Beckenstein.
    
        +2 Renegade - "Cut the crap. 
        +2 Paragon - "Welcome aboard."

        Mission Complete: "Dossier: The Master Thief"
        New Mission: "Kasumi: Stealing Memory"
    
    2 - Getting In
    The plan is to recover Keiji's graybox during a party at Hock's mansion.  
    Simply travel to the Boltzmann System in the Serpent Nebula and land on 
    Beckenstein to begin the mission.  The guard will turn Kasumi away when you 
    arrive, so she will need to remain cloaked for now.  The vault is located on 
    the lower level at the far end of the hall when you arrive, and is accessible 
    via stairwells to either side.  The vault has several security systems you 
    will need to bypass in order to get inside: There is a DNA scanner, a voice 
    identification system, and a kinetic barrier.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Of course"
        +2 Renegade - "If that's what it takes." 
        +2 Paragon - "What's the plan?"
        +2 Renegade - "I can do this alone."

        New Mission: "Kasumi: Voice Lock"
        New Mission: "Kasumi: Kinetic Barrier"
    
    3 - Collecting Samples
    The door to Hock's private rooms are located on the right side of the hall 
    (as you originally entered) but the guard will not agree to let you in unless 
    you have authorization.  At the rear of the hall you can head out onto a 
    balcony.  Off to the left side you will find a datapad with some useful 
    information: Apparently the security personnel are afraid of angering their 
    security chief.  You can use this knowledge to trick the guard into letting 
    you pass.  Alternatively, you can head to the other end of the balcony and 
    hop the railing to sneak into Hock's quarters instead.  Just kill the Eclipse 
    troopers and shoot out the window to get inside.  In Hock's bedroom you can 
    find DNA samples on the antique weapons, the datapad on his desk, and the 
    wineglass on the table.  Checking the alarm clock near his bed will alert the 
    guards.  You can find credits in the couch cushions as well as a wall safe at 
    the back of the room.  When you have enough DNA, head back to the vault and 
    use the DNA scanner.
    
        Mission Complete: "Kasumi: DNA Scanner"
    
    4 - Voice Recognition
    All you need to do to get a sample of Hock's voice is to keep him talking.  
    This can be accomplished by using one persuasive dialogue option when you 
    speak with him.  Afterwards, bypass the security room door on the right side 
    of the hall (as you originally entered) and take out the guards inside.  
    There is a wall safe and a medical station here, as well as a datapad with 
    the password you need.  Return to the vault to enter the password.

    5 - Cut the Power
    After examining the kinetic barrier power cable in the vault corridor, Kasumi 
    will set your omni-tool to detect the magnetic field it generates.  This will 
    allow you to see the cable beneath the floor.  Follow the cable upstairs and 
    across the hall to an alcove with several paintings.  Pull on the statuette 
    to reveal the control panel for the kinetic barrier, which Kasumi will use to 
    shut it down.
    
        Mission Complete: "Kasumi: Kinetic Barrier"
    
    6 - Crack the Vault
    Opening the secure elevator will allow you to get out of your formal attire 
    and equip your weapons and armor.  Inside the vault you can check out many of 
    the items in Hock's collection.  Be sure to grab the Locust Submachine Gun 
    from the display table with Keiji's graybox.
    
        Weapon Acquired: M-12 Locust Submachine Gun
    
    7 - Escape the Estate
    Grabbing the graybox will alert Hock to your presence.  He will give a long 
    speech, which you can cut short with a Renegade action.  Several guards will 
    burst into the room, including the security chief herself.  Beyond the door 
    is a weapons locker you can use to swap out your gear.  Continue into the 
    next room and fight your way through another group of guards and a YMIR mech.  
    Take the stairs on the right side at the end of the corridor and hack the 
    nearby PDA.  To proceed in the next area you will need to circle around to 
    the left and fire the mass accelerator cannon to blow open a hole in the 
    wall.  There are also two sets of spare parts, a med kit, and some refined 
    platinum in the area.  Continue through the hole and make your way past more 
    guards and another heavy mech.  At the far side there is a med kit and a dead 
    merc you can collect some research data from.
    
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
    
    8 - Showdown with Hock
    There are more mercs and some refined platinum in the next room, after which 
    you can exit the facility.  You will not be able to call for the landing 
    shuttle however, as Hock arrives piloting a gunship.  Unlike other gunships 
    you may have faced, this one has a regenerating kinetic barrier.  Just take 
    care of all the enemies on the platform and Kasumi will eventually take care 
    of the shield herself.  After this scene just take down Hock's armor and you 
    will be free to return to the Normandy.
    
    9 - Keiji's Memories
    On the shuttle, Kasumi will activate Keiji's graybox.  After the scene you 
    can tell Kasumi to keep the data, or honor her lover's wishes and destroy it.
    
        +5 Paragon - "Keep the graybox"
        +4 Renegade - "Do it"

    LAIR OF THE SHADOW BROKER (*DLC*)                                      21b13l
    
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    LIARA'S MISSION
    
    Though not technically a loyalty mission, I have placed "Lair of the Shadow 
    Broker" here because it most closely follows the formula of the other loyalty 
    missions and because it is categorized by the game as a "Mission" rather than 
    an "Assignment."
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    1 - So Cerberus gave me this Intel...
    A message at your private terminal reveals that Cerberus has uncovered 
    information that can lead you to the Shadow Broker himself.  They want you to 
    give this information to Liara T'Soni so that she can help you eliminate him.  
    Take this new intel to Liara on Illium, who will tell you to meet her at her 
    apartment.
    
        +2 Paragon - "You saved me."
        +2 Renegade - "Why give me to Cerberus?"
        New Mission: "Lair of the Shadow Broker"
    
    2 - Botched Assassination
    Use your map to find the taxi stand and use it to travel to Liara's 
    apartment.  When you arrive you will find that local police and a Spectre 
    named Tela Vasir have cordoned off the area because someone tried to kill 
    Liara.  The assassin failed, but now Liara is missing.  You need to search 
    the apartment for clues that will lead you to her location.  Examine the 
    picture next to the bed on the second floor, and then the Prothean relic at 
    the foot of the stairs.
    
        +2 Paragon - "She's in danger."
        +2 Renegade - "So she did find something."
    
    3 - Trade Center Bombing
    The information from Liara's apartment leads you to the Dracon Trade Center.  
    As soon as you arrive, explosives take out several floors in an apparent 
    attempt to kill Liara.  Enter the building and grab the credits from the 
    locker on the right.  Ascend the stairs to the next floor to find some 
    medical stations and a PDA.  On the next level there is an ATM you can hack 
    and some power cells off to the right.  Head through the door and get ready 
    for contact with the Shadow Broker's private army.  The agents have flashbang 
    grenades, but are otherwise fairly weak enemies.  There are a few heavies, 
    engineers, and vanguards to contend with as well.  Keep an eye out for 
    terminals you can access for extra credits.  When you get to a point where 
    your path is blocked by fire, use the maintenance console in the room on the 
    left to clear the path.  There is also some element zero and some salvageable 
    equipment here as well.  Access the research terminal and wall safe past the 
    next group of enemies and then proceed through the door.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Wait, Liara. She's a friend" 
        +2 Renegade - "It was you?"
    
    4 - Chasing a Spectre
    Vasir has the data and is trying to escape.  Fight your way through a few 
    more agents and leave the building the way you came in.  You will need to fly 
    the skycar in pursuit of Vasir.  Use your boost except in tight turns and it 
    should be easy enough to stay on her tail.  Eventually she will crash at a 
    hotel and call in reinforcements to slow you down.  Grab the med kit from 
    your cab.  Each wave of reinforcements will arrive in a different location, 
    so stay mobile and make use of the ample cover.  Eventually a transport will 
    crash and you will be able to exit the parking area.  Collect the supplies in 
    the hotel room and grab the power cells and research data from Vasir's 
    crashed skycar.
    
    5 - Hostage Negotiations
    When you catch up with Vasir she will have taken a hostage.  No matter how 
    you resolve the situation you will end up battling Vasir in a large combat 
    area.  She has a very tough biotic barrier you will need to whittle down in 
    order to kill her.  Vasir will charge around the battlefield very rapidly, 
    but you can use Liara's stasis ability to freeze her in place.  Though she 
    will be invulnerable while the power is active, she will fall to the ground 
    and be momentarily incapacitated when the stasis field wears off.  As you 
    deplete her barrier she will retreat and call in a few reinforcements, but 
    once she is down to only her health she will be much easier to defeat.  After 
    the battle you will retrieve the data and head for the Shadow Broker's secret 
    base.  In the conversation with Liara there are three Paragon interrupts you 
    can use to prolong the dialogue.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Mariana, I'm here to help."
        +2 Renegade - "Escaping won't help you." 
        +15 Paragon - "I'll shoot if I have to." [Charm]
        +15 Renegade - "You're pathetic." [Intimidate]
        +15 Paragon - "[Drop thermal clips.]"
        +15 Renegade - "[Wound the hostage.]" 
        +2 Paragon - "You crossed the line."
        +2 Renegade - "I don't buy it." 
        +2 Paragon - "Yes."
        +2 Renegade - "What they had to do." 
        +5 Paragon per [Interrupt]
    
    6 - Getting Inside
    You land on the exterior of the ship and will need to make your way towards 
    the stern to find a hatch you can use to get inside.  The path is linear, but 
    you will need to fight through a significant enemy force to reach your goal.  
    Biotic powers like pull are especially useful here, as enemies can be lifted 
    out into the storm and vaporized by lightning.  You should also make use of 
    the lightning capacitors you come across, as shooting these will unleash an 
    attack resembling that of the Arc Projector.  Just don't get to close when 
    you set them off, as you and your squadmates are vulnerable to this attack as 
    well.  Eventually you will arrive at the hatch and Liara will set up a 
    program to bypass the security and get you inside.  While the program is 
    running you will need to fight off several waves of enemies.  If you stick to 
    cover near the hatch and make use of the four lightning capacitors this 
    should be an easy fight.
    
    7 - The Shadow Broker
    Once inside, fight your way down the corridor to reach the prison block.  
    Bypass the door to get inside and talk to Feron, then continue down the hall 
    to the Shadow Broker's office.  During this fight, be aware that the cover in 
    the room can be destroyed by the Shadow Broker's charge attack.  You will 
    need to take down his shields and armor, then get close and hit him with a 
    melee attack.  Repeat three times and Liara will finish him off.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Are you alright?" 
        +2 Paragon - "We're all leaving."
        +2 Renegade - "The Broker's overconfident." 
        +2 Paragon - "You're sure about this?"
        +2 Renegade - "Good. Useful intel." 
        +5 Paragon - "[Hug her]"
        +5 Renegade - "It's just nerves." 
        +2 Paragon - "I'll miss you."

    THE INFORMATION NETWORK
    
    With the Shadow Broker dead, his information network will fall into Liara's 
    hands.  Visiting the Shadow Broker's base will give you the following:
    
        Dossiers - Access to information on all your team members, as well as a 
            few other characters.
    
        Investment Opportunities - Fund missions to achieve certain goals.  You 
            will receive either double your initial investment, or nothing if the 
            mission fails.
    
        Survey Information - You can buy intel leading you to a few mineral-rich 
            planets.
    
        Advanced Training - For the cost of 1000 element zero you can 
            redistribute the talent points of any squad member.
    
        Delivery Pickup - A random reward of resources or a damage upgrade.  A 
            new reward will be available each time you return after completing a 
            mission.
    
        Video Archive - View short clips of various individuals, sometimes 
            offering unique insights into their private lives.
    
    You will also be able to invite Liara back to your ship for drinks--and more, 
    if she was your love interest in Mass Effect 1.

    The Viper Nebula will be added to your galaxy map.  Travel to the Bahak 
    System and land on Aratoht.  You will be by yourself for this mission, so 
    plan your loadout accordingly.  When you land, cut the power relay to open 
    the door and get out of the rain.  Follow the hallway and head down the 
    stairs on your left to activate the controls that will extend the bridge so 
    you can proceed.  At the end of the hallway, take the stairs up to the next 
    level.  Avoid triggering the laser tripwires when you circle around to the 
    left.  Continue until you reach a dead end.
    
    3 - Gas Problems
    There is a pipe on the ceiling you can shoot that will cause a small 
    explosion to open a path.  Use the valve to redirect the gas flow so you can 
    pass.  Immediately ahead is a T junction.  In order to go straight you will 
    need to toggle two gas valves, one immediately to the right, and one down the 
    hallway to the left.  This will allow you access to a room where you can grab 
    400 credits and a heavy weapons ammo upgrade.  Head back to the junction and 
    go right down the long hallway, toggling the valve at the end to get through.  
    Head to the top of the ramps and open the door to get back outside.
    
    3 - Avoiding Detection
    Wait for the guard across the way to go back inside, then descend the steps 
    and head to the right of the barriers.  Cutting power to the relay will lower 
    a transport to your left that you can mantle up to proceed.  Head through the 
    door and then back outside.  Go left to find a room with some refined 
    iridium, then head back and go right and drop down.  Go up the stairs and 
    through the door to get out of the rain.  There are guards in the room on the 
    right but you can walk right past them down the hallway.  When you get to the 
    hangar bay, enter the room on your left and access the crane controls.  Use 
    the middle control to move the crane forward, then the control on the left to 
    move it into position over the crate on the far wall.  Then use the right 
    control twice to lower the crane and pick up the crate.  This will let you 
    pick up a medi-gel capacity upgrade and some more iridium.  Use the vehicle 
    lift controls to lower the truck so you can descend to the next level.  
    Activate the controls on the bottom to raise it again, revealing a med kit 
    and some credits underneath.  Access the locker in the next room and cut the 
    power to shut off the lasers.  Then hug the right wall and go all the way 
    down to the end of the hallway.  Turn left, then enter the door at the end to 
    reach Dr. Kenson.
    
        +2 Renegade - "I'm here for the evidence."
    
    4 - Fight Your Way Out
    Once you free Dr. Kenson the batarians will be alerted.  When you exit the 
    room, the path to the left will now be open.  Head down the steps and grab 
    the ammo and med kit.  Through the next door is a large room in a 
    semicircular shape.  In the center and off to the right is the security 
    console Dr. Kenson will need to access.  You will need to hold off a few 
    waves of batarians.  Start by immediately heading back to the door you 
    entered from.  You will need to lock this door down to prevent reinforcements 
    from coming in that way.  Next there will be four elevators coming up from 
    below, starting on the far side, each carrying three guards.  Once all the 
    enemies have been dealt with, a platform will extend out to the middle of the 
    room, where you can access the main elevator to get back to the hangar bay.  
    You will need to deal with the batarian guards and take out the power 
    junctions on each side of the hangar bay doors in order to escape on the 
    shuttle.
    
    5 - The Project
    Kenson will explain that she has uncovered evidence that a Reaper invasion is 
    imminent.  Her team has set up a base on a nearby asteroid, where you will be 
    able to see this evidence for yourself.  When you arrive you will be able to 
    find some power cells off to the left, some credits to the right, and some 
    palladium behind the shuttle.  There is also a weapons locker where you can 
    change your loadout.  Follow Dr. Kenson until you reach the artifact.
    
    6 - The Artifact
    The Reaper artifact has predictably affected the minds of those who have been 
    exposed to it.  Kenson and her unit have no intention of stopping the 
    invasion.  You will be captured, but you get an achievement for fighting them 
    off as long as possible.  This fight can be quite difficult.  It is important 
    to stay mobile so you can collect enough ammunition, but you should try to 
    stick to the corners of the room to avoid being flanked.  You need to 
    prioritize the pyros, as their flamethrowers have a surprising range and can 
    stagger you long enough for the other project soldiers to kill you.  You know 
    you have reached the last wave of enemies when the YMIR mech shows up.  Mop 
    up any remaining enemies and the mech will be too slow to be much of a 
    problem.
    
    7 - "The sedatives aren't working!"
    Even if you win the fight in the room with the artifact you will pass out and 
    wake up almost two days later.  Grab the mech controls and use them to take 
    over a nearby LOKI mech.  Kill the scientist and the other mechs and then 
    shoot the power junction to open the door and free yourself.  Equip your 
    weapons and armor, then bypass the door to escape.  Fight your way through 
    the recreation room, salvaging some credits from a deactivated mech at the 
    far end.  Continue from one pod to the next until you reach the engine 
    control room.  Here you can activate the fusion torches that will propel the 
    asteroid into the mass relay.
    
        +5 Paragon - "[Warn batarian colonies]"
        +2 Renegade - "[Call Normandy for pickup]"
    
    8 - Avoiding a Meltdown
    Kenson will try to overheat the element zero reactor core to destroy the 
    asteroid before it can reach its destination.  Two enemies will come through 
    a door on your left.  Take them out then use the elevator behind them.  After 
    a conversation with Kenson, overload the door lock and use the elevator on 
    the right to go up to the next level.  Grab the element zero, then access the 
    first cooling rod in the next room.  Continue circling clockwise around the 
    core and take the elevator back down.  Use the medical station and grab the 
    credits in the room on the right, then deactivate the plasma venting.  This 
    will allow you to head back to where you got off the elevator and continue 
    straight.  Bear right to grab some element zero, then back to the left and 
    down the hallway.  The door on the opposite end of the maintenance area is 
    locked, but you can shoot the explosive crate on the right to open a path.  
    Remove the lockdown, and be ready for enemies coming down the elevator at the 
    end of the hall.  Grab some more element zero from the landing, then take 
    another elevator up to the top level.  There is a room full of crates and 
    some tough enemies on your left.  Take them out, then bypass the door.  Grab 
    the credits and resources and then use the second cooling control to prevent 
    a meltdown.  Take the elevator down to confront Kenson.
    
        +2 Paragon - "You're wasting your time."
        +2 Renegade - "I will stop you." 
        +5 Renegade - [Interrupt]
    
    9 - Escaping the Asteroid
    Use the elevator and follow the path to the communications tower.  There is a 
    heavy skin weave upgrade as well as some credits and resources in a room off 
    the left side of the hallway.  Continue down the steps and grab the survey 
    data before entering the airlock.  You will have to fight your way across the 
    surface of the asteroid to reach the tower and open up communications with 
    the Normandy.  Don't move up too fast, as the number of enemies and the YMIR 
    mech at the end can quickly surround you.  Defeat all the enemies and access 
    the comm relay to end the mission.
    
    10 - Debrief
    Admiral Hackett will come to debrief you in person.  He isn't pleased about 
    the loss of Dr. Kenson, and he warns you that eventually the Alliance will 
    call you to Earth to answer for your actions, but he understands that you did 
    what had to be done.

    the volus left without his credit chit, so it was not stolen after all.  Head

    to the quarian anyway, and you can perform a Paragon action to chide him for 
    doing so.

    definitively that there are no fish in the lake.
    
    2 - Inform the Krogan
    You can simply return to the krogan and give him the bad news to complete the 
    assignment.  However, if you buy a fish at the nearby gift shop you can claim

    Requirements: Complete Horizon, Conrad Verner must survive Mass Effect 1
    
    1 - Not You Again...
    An asari outside the Eternity club will alert you to a man causing trouble 
    inside, and--sure enough--it is your adoring fan, Conrad Verner.  He is back, 
    wearing a replica suit of N7 armor, and trying to intimidate the bartender.  
    You can tell him to get lost, but if you ask what he is doing here he will 
    tell you that a merchant claiming to be an undercover cop told him that 
    Eternity is actually a front for a red sand dealer.
    
        +2 Paragon - "For crying out loud..."
        +2 Renegade - "[Hit him.]"

    Use your map to find your way to the carport.  You are looking for the owner 
    of Gateway Personal Defense.  You can tell her to leave Conrad alone, but you 
    can also lie and tell her than the deed is waiting for her at Eternity, or 
    make her go lie to Conrad and tell him he did a great job.  Either persuasive 
    option gets you a discount at her kiosk.

        +5 Renegade - "Shut up and listen." [Intimidate]
        +2 Renegade - "I should kill you."
    
    3 - Return to Eternity (Optional)
    If you did not persuade the merchant, you have to go back to Conrad and admit 
    that he was manipulated, but you can still persuade him to give up his 
    attempts at vigilante justice.  However, if you persuaded the weapons 
    merchant, then you can humor Conrad's hero fantasy and let him believe he did 
    a good job.

    find a note with instructions.  Head over and talk to the Serrice Technology 
    merchant.  You can blow Gianna's cover in exchange for a store discount, or

    invasive medical procedures on them.  She needs help negotiating a new 
    contract with their representative.  Head over and speak to Erinya.  It soon 
    becomes apparent that the reason for her refusal to renegotiate is due to her 
    hatred of humans: It will take a persuasive dialog option to make her see the

    1 - The Abandoned Mine
    Scanning Aequitas in the Minos Wasteland reveals alien signatures from within 
    an abandoned mine.  When you land, it won't be long before you realize that 
    the miners were transformed into husks.  Biotics are extremely useful here 
    for keeping them at bay: Husks are most dangerous when they surround you, as 
    their melee attacks can keep you from moving or defending yourself.  You will 
    also encounter a few abominations.  Target these enemies first, as the 
    explosion they unleash when they die can damage or kill any husks surrounding 
    them.  There are some resources you can gather in the mine, as well as a few 
    lockers you can access for some extra credits.  When EDI warns you about the 
    powerful alien device in the mine, just charge ahead to take it out quickly: 
    There is no point in waiting around to fight the endless stream of husks that 
    appear.  There are bombs to either side of the device.  Shoot them both to 
    destroy it.

    Assignment:   N7: Abandoned Research Station                           21c4ba
    Given by:     Private message
    Location:     Jarrahe Station
    Requirements: Complete "N7: Wrecked Merchant Freighter"
    
    1 - The Abandoned Station
    Logs recovered from the MSV Corsica point to Jarrahe Station in the Strabo 
    System of the Eagle Nebula as the last location of the ship before it 
    crashed.  When you arrive, you will find that the entire crew has been 
    murdered.  Head into the next room, grab the resources, and restore power to 
    the docking area so you can proceed into the station.  Datapads left on the 
    floor will point to the VI as the cause of the station's troubles, but the VI 
    core itself is sealed.  You will need to restore power in each of the 
    station's wings in order to access it.
    
    2 - Living Quarters
    Head into the medical lab to find the living quarters controls.  Restoring 
    power will lock you in the room, but you can access the three nearby station 
    controls to remedy the situation.  Each station will toggle the locking 
    mechanism of certain doors.  Activate the rightmost and center consoles to 
    unlock all the doors.
    
    3 - Engineering
    The VI will vent damaging plasma to block your path.  You can access the 
    personal lockers in the alcove to the right to loot some credits.  The plasma 
    vents do not stay on continuously, so watch for the timing, and move ahead 
    when it is safe to do so.  You can restore power at the end of the tunnel.
    
    4 - Research Lab
    Grab the iridium in the lab, and restore power.  Once again you will be 
    locked in.  Head over to the computers and use them to manipulate the beam so 
    that it destroys the device on the far wall.  Solution: Activate computer 1 
    once, computer 2 twice, computer 3 once, and computer 4 three times.
    
    5 - Shut down the VI
    You can now restore power to the hub area, which will let you into the VI 
    core.  Head through the open doors and deactivate the VI mainframe to 
    complete the assignment.

    Location:     Canalus
    Requirements: none
    
    1 - Geth-Made Climate Change
    The planet Canalus (Dirada System, Pylos Nebula) has a geth device that is 
    affecting the planet's climate.  Visibility on the surface is extremely low, 
    so you will really have to search carefully to find all the refined palladium 
    in the area.  The geth here are slow and fairly weak.  A combination of tech 
    and biotic powers should make fighting through them quite easy.  Simply 
    access the geth terminal to shut down the weather device.

    Location:     Canalus
    Requirements: Talk to Jacob about his father
    
    1 - The Dig Site
    Scan the planet Joab (Enoch System, Rosetta Nebula) to find evidence that an 
    archeological dig site has been captured by Blue Suns mercenaries.  Land at 
    the site and clear out the initial group of mercenaries.  You can find some 
    element zero off to the left of the landing site.  Inside there are personal 
    lockers containing 750 credits to either side of the main entrance, along 
    with a med kit on a table in the center.  In a passageway to the left you can 
    find another locker, this time with 2250 credits.
    
    2 - Prothean Ruins
    Follow the ramps to the next room, where you must fight Lieutenant Locke, a 
    Blue Suns commander, and some more troopers.  Grab the element zero in the 
    center, then open the door on the far side of the room to find the Prothean 
    relic the Suns uncovered.

    Location:     Zada Ban
    Requirements: none
    
    1 - Destroy the Base
    The relay on Tarith will point you to a Blood Pack base on Zada Ban, a planet 
    in the Shrike Abyssal.  Cross the rock bridge and grab the palladium on the 
    other side.  The area is crawling with vorcha, so use biotics to knock them 
    off the narrow paths that lead into the base.  Descend the stairs and cross 
    another bridge.  Through the door you will find Kalusk, the krogan in charge 
    of this facility.  You can fight him, but the goal is to destroy all the 
    containment cells around the central tanks.  Doing so will cause a chain 
    reaction that will destroy the base.  When you are given the warning to 
    evacuate, simply retreat the way you came in.

    Given by:     none
    Location:     Tarith
    Requirements: none
    
    1 - The Blood Pack Signal
    Scans of the planet Tarith in the Lusarn System of the Crescent Nebula reveal 
    a high-powered communications relay on the planet's surface.  It appears to 
    be associated with a Blood Pack mining operation.  By disabling the relay, 
    you could deal a serious blow to the Blood Pack's operations.
    
    2 - Follow the Beacons
    The fog on the planet limits your visibility, but you will come across 
    beacons you can activate which will show you the way you need to go to reach 
    the communications relay.  You can also travel off the beaten path to find 
    some raw materials you can harvest platinum from.  The only enemies to worry 
    about are the klixen.  Their size can make them intimidating, but they are 
    extremely susceptible to biotic attacks.
    
    3 - The Relay
    When you have followed the beacons back to the communications relay, you will 
    finally encounter Salamul, the krogan who was using vorcha to mine the 
    planet--until they were driven off by the klixen.  He can take you by 
    surprise, so be ready to retreat if he gets too close to you.  Try sending 
    your squad ahead of you to draw his attention.  When you have mopped up his 
    assistants, bypass the communications terminal to shut down the Blood Pack 
    operation on Tarith.  When you get back to the Normandy, check your messages 
    at your private terminal to learn where the resources mined on Tarith were 
    being sent.

    Location:     Sanctum
    Requirements: Complete "N7: MSV Strontium Mule"
    
    1 - The Suns Base
    The Mule was lured in by a false distress signal in the Decorus System, 
    Sigurd's Cradle.  Alliance Command wants you to land on Sanctum and disable 
    that transmitter so no more ships get lured into the same trap.  When you 
    land, fight your way through the initial wave of defenders and get inside.  
    Don't forget to grab the iridium by the entrance.  Stick to the balconies to 
    give you height and cover.  When you get down to the ground floor, check the 
    living quarters on the right to find a wall safe containing 1875 credits.
    
    2 - The Mines
    Head back across to the mess hall, where a TBM has accidentally broken 
    through and created an opening into the mines.  Grab the iridium casks and 
    power cells in this area, then head into the next room and get ready for a 
    tough fight.  You must destroy two YMIR mechs in a fairly confined area with 
    a lot of destructible cover.  There is a med kit over to the left that you 
    will need to destroy a crate to get to.  There is also a wall safe in the 
    room on the left containing 1875 credits.  When you are ready to leave, 
    bypass the door in the center and shutdown the distress beacon.

    1 - The Mines
    Scanning the planet Helyme (Zelune System, Crescent Nebula) will reveal the 
    presence of Eclipse mercenaries.  Eclipse has taken over a mining facility, 
    but it is not known why.  Head inside the mine and take out the initial group 
    of Eclipse troopers and vanguards.  Take a left to find some refined 
    palladium, then return and bypass the door.
    
    2 - Retrieve the Data
    In the next area, keep to the right and circle around the enemies to clear 
    them out.  There are some power cells in an alcove near the entrance.  When 
    all the enemies are dealt with, hack the mainframe to begin the decryption 
    process.  This will trigger Eclipse reinforcements.  You have a few seconds 
    to find somewhere to bunker down.  Fortunately, all the enemies are ones you 
    have faced before.  Just stick to cover and try not to let them surround you.  
    When the decryption process is complete, return to the mainframe and retrieve 
    the data.

    2 - The Depot
    The coordinates actually lead you to an outpost in the Faryar System of the 
    Hourglass Nebula which the Eclipse are using as part of their smuggling 
    operation.

    3 - Stop the Scuttling
    Land at the outpost to discover that the Eclipse have deployed heavy mechs to 
    destroy the cargo rather than let you take it.  There are three mechs in 
    total, and the faster you destroy them the fewer crates they will be able to 
    destroy.  There is some refined element zero and a med kit in an alcove to 
    one side of the depot, along with some power cells on the landing pad.

    shields to save it.  Grab some palladium from the broken generator on the 
    left, then bypass the central control terminal.  Use the control switch to 
    direct power to each subsystem before you activate it.  Activate the cooling 
    unit and the shield generator, then bypass the shield controls to reactivate 
    the station's magnetic shields.

    facility.  The room ahead of you has a med kit and a wall safe, as well as a 
    terminal you can use to learn more about what happened to the facility.  
    Continue down the hallway to enter the production floor.  Circle around until 
    you find the stairs leading down to the area with the piled up crates.  You 
    can find some power cells down here if you wander around, but to reach the 
    control room just head in the direction the mechs are coming from.  There is 
    some element zero in the room at the other end of the floor.  Just take the 
    ramps up to control room and hack the computer to shut down the production 
    line.

    1 - Stop the Missiles
    The colony on Franklin (Skepsis System, Sigurd's Cradle) is in danger of 
    being destroyed by missiles launched by a group of batarian terrorists.  You 
    have five minutes from the time you land to stop the missiles before they 
    reach their targets.  Take out the troopers on the left, then bypass the door 
    on the right.  In this room, taking the path to the right puts you in a 
    better position to take out the enemies in this room.  When they are dead you 
    will be able to enter the missile silo, but first grab the palladium and the 
    power cells.  Fight your way to the control panel, and grab the 3750 credits 
    from the wall safe on the right.
    
    2 - The Colony's Fate
    When you hack the kill switch you will find that there is only one code you 
    can use to stop a single missile.  You can save the colony, but this will 
    destroy the spaceport, meaning the colony will no longer be viable.  Or, you 
    can save the spaceport and allow the Alliance to keep this strategically 
    important location--at the cost of thousands of lives.  The choice is yours.

    the Omega Nebula and scan the inner-most planet for an anomaly.  There is a 
    Cerberus transmitter on the surface, and you can also detect other 
    transmissions matching those of encoded Eclipse communications.
    
    2 - Find the Operative
    When you first land there is some platinum behind some crates to your right.  
    Proceed up the ramps and enter research lab 2, where you will encounter 
    Eclipse mercs.  There is a medical kit and a wall safe in the back room.  You 
    can check the security logs to learn that Eclipse is trying to find proof 
    that Cerberus was involved in rachni experiments.  The captured the Cerberus 
    agent, believing he could decipher the data they had recovered, but he 
    refused to talk and was ultimately tortured to death.
    
    3 - The Data
    Bypass the holding cell security to get into the interrogation area.  Several 
    trooper will come out to attack you.  The toughest opponent is a salarian 
    named Morl who has shield and armor defenses.  There is some platinum behind 
    a tank on the catwalk outside.  Proceed through the door to the interrogation 
    room to find the encrypted data the mercs were hoping to crack.  You can 
    recover the data for yourself, or upload it either to Cerberus or the 
    Alliance.

    2 - Investigate the Crash Site
    Travel down to the surface to investigate.  There are no enemies to worry 
    about, so the shuttle will drop you off without any squad members.  Start by 
    heading left, towards the bow of the ship.  There is a ramp you can descend 
    that will take you over to the starboard side.  Bear right and proceed down 
    the nearby ramp to find some refined iridium.  Look above you and shoot the 
    loose piece of the ship's hull, which will fall in such a way as to let you 
    proceed.  Circle around towards the port side, and head back up the ramp to 
    find more iridium.  Mount the nearby block, and follow the ramp back up to 
    the starboard hull.  Proceed towards the bow, bearing left to cross back to 
    the port side, then back across another walkway further towards the bow to 
    get back to the starboard side of the ship.  Head back towards the stern to 
    find a ramp leading down a level.  Grab the iridium, continue down the steps, 
    then back across once they collapse.  Loot the last iridium container, then 
    head up the steps and across the narrow plank to reach the mainframe.

    2 - Get to the Bridge
    The central door leads to the engine room, where you can find some power 
    cells but little else.  The doors to either side have ramps that will take 
    you up to the top level.  Through the right door there is a room with a 
    medical station you can use.  On the top level, head back towards the bow, 
    where you will find a locked door to the bridge.  Head left and use the 
    terminal to bypass the bridge security console to open the door.  Kill 
    Captain Vorhess and his bodyguards, then be ready for a counterattack from 
    the way you came in.
    
    3 - Retrieve the Cargo
    Reading the ship's main log will let you into the room with the cargo.  Fight 
    your way through Sgt. Boortis and back towards the bow of the ship.  At the 
    fork, head through the door on the left and grab the iridium and the research 
    data.  Grab the payload to earn 3750 credits and complete the mission.

    Location:     Gei Hinnom
    Requirements: none
    
    1 - Rescue the Quarian
    A quarian crash landed on the planet Gei Hinnom in the Sheol System of the 
    Hades Nexus.  Land at the crash site, and grab the med kit and palladium 
    nearby.  The quarian is up ahead.  When you call your shuttle to rescue her, 
    a pack of varren will attack.  Use your biotics on the varren to keep them 
    away from you and the quarian.  When the shuttle lands, use it to escape the 
    planet.  A quarian ship will come to pick up the girl you rescued.

    Given by:     none
    Location:     Neith
    Requirements: none
    
    1 - Investigate the Landing Area
    Scans of the planet Neith (Amun System of the Eagle Nebula) reveal the crash 
    site of a merchant freighter.  When you take the shuttle down to investigate, 
    grab the crate of refined platinum nearby (the first of many crates you can 
    find at the crash site).  There are also some damaged mech parts off to the 
    left and right you can salvage for 1500 credits.  The crash site is split 
    into two paths by the crash, but each links up on the other side.  You can 
    examine the area to find numerous logs about the ship's status, but of 
    special note is the shipping manifest: This freighter was delivering nearly 
    200 mechs to an Elanus Risk Control facility.  When you are done looking 
    around, mount the two ledges near the crashed ship and deactivate the signal 
    transmitter
    
    2 - Return to the Shuttle
    As you might have guessed, the mechs that brought down the ship will arrive, 
    meaning you will have to fight your way back to the shuttle.  The VI will 
    warn you about increasing sandstorm activity, but there is no time limit.  
    When you reach the shuttle, get aboard, as the mechs will continue to spawn 
    indefinitely and you don't gain anything by killing them.

    Given by:     Private message from Admiral Hackett
    Location:     Alchera
    Requirements: Download from the Cerberus Network
    
    1 - The Old Normandy
    A message on your private terminal will alter you that the final resting 
    place of the SSV Normandy has been found--on the planet Alchera of the Amada 
    System in the Omega Nebula.  Alliance Command would like you to land at the 
    crash site and recover the dog tags of the crew members who went down with 
    the ship, and find an appropriate location to place a memorial to their 
    sacrifice.
    
    2 - The Crash Site
    Land on Alchera.  There are no hostiles, so you won't need a team to come 
    with you.  There are twenty dog tags in all to be found, but fortunately they 
    give off a glow that makes them easy to spot.  There are some fragile 
    containers you will have to shoot to uncover a few of the tags, but otherwise 
    they shouldn't be difficult to locate if you search the site thoroughly.  You 
    can also collect Shepard's old N7 helmet off to the right of the CIC.  The 
    last thing to do is place the memorial monument.  There are numerous 
    acceptable locations, and there really is no right or wrong answer: Just 
    choose a place you feel is appropriate.  When the monument is placed, return 
    to your shuttle to leave the site.
    
    3 - Pressly's Datapad (Optional)
    Players of Mass Effect 1 may remember Navigator Pressly's distrust of aliens 
    at the start of the game.  At the crash site you can recover his datapad near 
    the CIC, which reveals that he had a change of heart as he spent more time 
    working with non-humans.

    1 - Maintenance Hassles
    The engineers down on Deck 4 are having to spend an inordinate amount of time 
    on maintenance tasks.  Some T6-FBA couplings could make their jobs easier, 
    but they are hard to come by.

    2 - Obtain the Couplings
    Head to Omega and visit the market district.  The quarian Kenn runs a salvage 
    shop where you can buy the couplings.
    
    3 - Skyllian-Five
    Deliver the couplings to your engineers and they will offer to play some

    Requirements: none
    
    1 - A Missed Opportunity
    Doctor Chakwas is back at work on the Normandy's crew deck, but she lost an 
    expensive bottle of Serrice Ice Brandy when the old Normandy was destroyed.  
    She regrets never having the opportunity to open it, but she would appreciate 
    another chance should you find one.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Why are you here?"
    
    2 - Purchase the Brandy
    You can find the brandy on the upper level of Afterlife on Omega, or at the 
    Dark Star Lounge on the Citadel.  The bottle costs 1000 credits.
    
    3 - The Perfect Toast
    Return to the Normandy and give the bottle to Doctor Chakwas.  You can choose 
    to put off drinking it, but you wouldn't want the chance to pass her by like 
    it did last time, do you?  The longer you talk with Chakwas, the more options 
    open up for the target of your toast.

    ingredients.  Find him on the crew deck and ask him to give you the list of 
    items he's looking for.
    
    2 - Acquire the Ingredients
    Travel to the Citadel and find the Zakera Cafe on level 27.  Here you can 
    purchase the high-quality provisions Gardner is looking for.  Simply return 
    to the Normandy and speak with the Mess Sergeant to complete the assignment.

    Archangel is dealt with.
    
    2 - Deliver the Information
    After concluding your business with Archangel, return to Afterlife on Omega 
    and deliver the datapad to Aria.  If you also helped her with Patriarch, she 
    will offer to reward you with the location of a cache on an uncharted world.

    Requirements: none
    
    1 - Order a Drink
    While on Omega, visit the lower level of Afterlife and order a drink from the 
    bartender, Forvan.  You will pass out and wake up in a back alley with the 
    vorcha.  Apparently the bartender has been poisoning humans who buy drinks 
    from him, but you are the first one to survive.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Thanks for the advice."
        +2 Renegade - "That bartender will pay." 
    
    2 - Confront the Batarian
    Head back to Afterlife and speak with the bartender.  You can tell him he's 
    not worth the trouble for some Paragon points, turn the crowd against him, or 
    make him drink his own poison.  The batarian will eventually be replaced by a 
    Salarian who serves untainted drinks to his human customers.

    1 - Collect the Packages
    A salarian named Ish can be found outside the main entrance to Afterlife.  He 
    wants you to retrieve some packages from Illium and the Citadel and deliver 
    them to him.  Find the Illium package at Eternity, and the Citadel package 
    outside Saronis Applications on level 26.  Return to Ish with the packages 
    and either deliver them in exchange for credits and some Renegade points, or 
    talk him out of the information-dealing business.  Alternatively, you can 
    bring the packages to Anto (one of Aria's bodyguards) for a smaller reward,

    A quarian named Kenn is running a salvage shop on Omega in an effort to raise 
    enough funds to leave the station.  Unfortunately, another merchant, Harrot, 
    has been forcing Kenn to sell his goods at higher prices, so he has been 
    unable to attract business.  You can pay the 1000 credits Kenn needs, or you 
    can go visit Harrot and persuade him either to leave the quarian alone or buy 
    him out.  If you convince Harrot, he will give you a discount on his goods.

    Given by:     Grizz at Afterlife
    Location:     Omega
    Requirements: Acquire Archangel or the Professor
    
    1 - Aria Has a Job for You
    Speak with Grizz, one of Aria's guards at Afterlife.  He says she wants you 
    to get the Krogan known as "Patriarch" to safety.  You can persuade him to 
    tell you more about Aria's motivations and why she wants an outsider like you 
    to handle it.
    
    2 - Patriarch
    Head down to the lower level of Afterlife and find Patriarch in an alcove to 
    the west.  It seems that he once ran Omega, but Aria defeated him and took 
    over the station.  She left Patriarch alive as an "advisor," but it seems he 
    is more of a trophy.  You can take Patriarch to safety, or you can offer to 
    take out the people trying to kill him (Paragon persuade), or tell him to 
    take them on himself and die like a warrior (Renegade persuade).  If you 
    choose to take out the assassins yourself, just head up the ramp and head out 
    the door to your left.  Return to Grizz to complete the assignment.  If you 
    also delivered the datapad from Archangel's base to Aria, she will offer to 
    reward you with the location of a cache on an uncharted world.  Refer to the 
    "N7: Eclipse Smuggled Cargo" assignment.

    While on the mission to acquire the Professor, Mordin will ask that you look

    Pack troopers, you will find Daniel being held captive by batarians in a room 
    on the left side after you ascend the stairs.  Unless you can persuade them 
    to let him go, Daniel will be killed and you will have to give the bad news 
    to Mordin.  Grab the med kit before you leave.

    Given by:     Private message from the Illusive Man 
    Location:     Normandy, Aite
    Requirements: Install the Overlord downloadable content
    
    1 - Someone Plugged in the Overlord
    A message from the Illusive Man informs you of a secret Cerberus research 
    project that has dropped out of contact.  He does not tell you what they were 
    working on, but asks that you head to the Phoenix Massing to investigate.
    
    2 - Dish Control
    Land on Aite in the Typhon system.  You will be contacted by Dr. Archer, who 
    claims that you need to retract the large transmission dish directly ahead of 
    you.  First, turn left and look around the corner to find some power cells.  
    Off to the right and down a ramp you can also find some refined palladium.   
    Enter the facility and descend the stairs.  Archer will appear on the monitor 
    and explain that a rogue VI program has seized control of the facility.  
    Continue until you reach the control panel where you can retract the dish.
    
    3 - To the Tram
    Unfortunately, the VI overrides your commands.  You will have to get to the 
    dish itself and destroy the antennae to keep it from uploading its program 
    and escaping the planet.  At this point you will start seeing the security 
    cameras activate and track your movements.  You can shoot them if you wish.  
    Through the door and down the stairs you can find a PDA containing some 
    credits.  Through the next door is a large room containing a number of geth, 
    including several destroyers and rocket troopers.  When they are all dead, 
    you can raid the cafe register behind the counter for some credits.  There is 
    also a medical station and some power cells nearby.  Up the stairs you can 
    find a side room with a wall safe and one of Archer's logs.  Continue 
    onwards, salvage some parts, grab some first aid, and then activate the tram.
    
    4 - Destroy the Antennae
    When you arrive at dish control make your way out onto the catwalks.  Grab 
    the power cells in the first alcove then fight your way through the geth.  On 
    the other side of the collapsed section is some refined palladium, a medical 
    station, and another audio log.  Access the terminal to extend the walkway.  
    Be ready for an ambush from the catwalk on the left.  Bypass the door to get 
    inside.  You will need to eliminate the geth in the central chamber--
    including a geth prime--then ascend the stairs to access the surface of the 
    dish.  Archer will tell you to destroy the capacitors on each of the support 
    struts located around the dish.  Just access the console next to each strut, 
    and shoot the capacitor when it becomes exposed.  Expect geth reinforcements 
    after you destroy each capacitor. Destroying three of the four struts will be 
    sufficient to stop the transmission.  When the dust settles Archer will 
    explain the situation.
    
    5 - Data Hound (Optional)
    Return to the Hammerhead.  You will now be let loose in the hub area leading 
    to Vulcan, Prometheus, and Atlas Stations.  You can head to either Vulcan or 
    Prometheus first, but you will have to save Atlas for last.  There are also 
    six data caches scattered around this area, usually protected by turrets.  
    Most of these are not difficult to locate if you scout around for them, but 
    it is easy to miss the cache hidden under the rock bridge leading to Vulcan 
    Station.

    Given by:     Find Vulcan Station
    Location:     Aite
    Requirements: Save Hermes Station
    
    1 - Vent Jumping
    Follow the on-screen indicators to reach Vulcan Station.  When you arrive, 
    drive the Hammerhead into the venting station, and use the vents to boost you 
    up to the top of the cliff.  Destroy the Cerberus turret.  At the fork, take 
    the left path to acquire some iridium, then return and take the right path to 
    proceed.  Before you is a lava flow with chunks of rock floating in it.  You 
    must hover between these rocks to reach the other side, but you can not stay 
    on one rock too long or it will sink into the lava.  When you reach the other 
    side, use the vent to launch yourself up to the next level, where there is a 
    hangar you can use to dock the Hammerhead.  Inside the facility, you will 
    have to fight through several LOKI mechs under control of the VI.  Bypass the 
    lock on the valve controls to open the vent outside, then Return to the 
    Hammerhead.
    
    2 - Reach Vulcan Station
    Use the vent you just opened to launch yourself up the nearby cliff.  
    Eliminate the turret guarding the iridium, then head forward to the next lava 
    flow.  This is the same as before, except your destination is downstream.  
    You will need to jump the Hammerhead back and forth on the rocks until they 
    float far enough that you can depart on the far side of the molten river.  
    When you reach your destination, you can use the vent on the right side and 
    the cliffs on the left to reach iridium caches.  The next lava flow is 
    similar to the previous one, except you must now fight the current to reach a 
    destination upstream, at which point you will be able to exit the Hammerhead 
    once more.
    
    3 - Override the Lockdown
    Inside the station there are several explosive canisters which release 
    pressurized gasses.  When timed correctly, this can be used to push the enemy 
    mechs off of nearby ledges.  Bypass the valve controls and grab the datapad 
    to the right when you enter.  Fight your way up the stairs and through the

    and bypass the door to override the lockdown.

    Assignment:   Overlord: Prometheus Station                             21c7cp
    Given by:     Find Prometheus Station 
    Location:     Aite
    Requirements: Save Hermes Station
    
    1 - Enter the Ship
    As Archer says, Prometheus Station is a crashed geth ship.  To get inside you 
    will have to disable the four shield generators, each of which has its own 
    shield.  Your weapons can take down these shields, but it will take a 
    significant number of hits.  Instead, wait near one of the generators for the 
    geth turret to target you, then quickly move out of the way.  The attack will 
    take down the shield, allowing you to easily destroy the generator.  Repeat 
    for each of the four generators and the main shield will go down, allowing 
    you to destroy the turret and enter the ship.  Don't miss the data point 
    containing some refined platinum before you move on.
    
    2 - Reach the Override Controls
    Take note of the deactivated geth prime in the center of the first room.  
    Make your way upstairs and salvage the lab equipment for some credits.  There 
    are no enemies to worry about in the ship--all the geth are deactivated.  
    Simply follow the path the VI lays out for you.  Take some time to look 
    around and find all the salvageable equipment and resources.  Eventually you 
    will reach a large flooded room with an interface for controlling the 
    platforms you can walk on.  The override controls (along with a med kit and 
    some credits) are off to the left, and an alcove with some medi-gel, credits, 
    and power cells is off to the right.  You will need to move the platforms in 
    order to reach your goal:
    
            Start        Extra        Goal
     
              ###          ###         1###

            ##3 #        ## 3#        ##2 #
    
    3 - Escape the Station
    Overriding the lockdown will unlock many of the areas you previously could 
    not enter.  Unfortunately, these areas of the ship also contained geth which 
    have now been reactivated.  You will have to fight your way back to the 
    Hammerhead.  The path is not quite the same as before, however, as some 
    sections of the ship have collapsed.  Just follow the geth until you get back 
    to the main room, where the geth prime is now active.  Fortunately, you have 
    the advantage of height and cover.  Take out the lesser geth before taking on 
    the prime.  When all the geth are eliminated return to the Hammerhead.

    Given by:     Dr. Archer 
    Location:     Aite
    Requirements: Save Hermes Station
    
    1 - Get to the Server Room
    After you override the lockdowns in Vulcan and Prometheus stations, you will 
    finally be able to access Atlas Station and put a stop to this VI once and 
    for all.  Follow the path until you reach a large room with a med kit and 
    some salvageable hardware.  You will need to activate the elevator by 
    summoning it twice and accessing the secure computer once.  Eliminate the 
    geth, then take use the elevator.  Hack the computer for some credits, grab 
    the refined palladium, and scan the damaged geth for a research upgrade.  
    Head down the hallway and access the VI server console.
    
    2 - The VI
    Down the hallway there are a few geth to fight.  At the end is a room with 
    some power cells and palladium where you can see Archer experimenting on a 
    captured geth.  In the next room there are some geth troopers who will ignore 
    you unless you get too close.  Loot everything in the room beyond, then 
    activate the elevator.  Eliminate the geth, then take the lift down to the VI 
    core.  Here you will have to prevent the VI from uploading its program.  The 
    VI connections are manifested as glowing orbs that will travel along the 
    tendrils extending from the core itself.  You must shoot these connections to 
    destroy them.  Destroying a group of connections will briefly expose the 
    core, the destruction of which will abort the upload  When the dust settles 
    the true cost of Archer's research will be revealed.  You will have to decide 
    if it was worth it.

    Location:     Lattesh
    Requirements: Complete "Project Firewalker: Rosalie Lost"
    
    1 - Research Data
    Data recovered from Zeona has revealed several of the research sites used by 
    the Firewalker team.  If you retrace their steps you may be able to find the 
    Prothean site they were looking for.
    
    2 - Frostbite
    Head to the Phoenix Massing and land on Lattesh in the Chomos System.  The 
    temperatures here are cold enough to damage the Hammerhead if you remain here 
    too long, so you will need to work quickly to recover as much data as 
    possible.  There are ten sensor pads on the surface.  The path between them 
    is linear, so the only difficulty lies in how quickly you can access them.  
    Each time you download data from a node, you will receive a boost to your 
    engine temperature, though the returns from this become increasingly short-
    lived.  You do not need to access all the nodes to complete the mission, but 
    you are rewarded with palladium for each one you recover data from.

    Given by:     Firewalker DLC
    Location:     Kopis
    Requirements: Find the location of the research team's discovery
    
    1 - Accessing the Ruins
    The Prothean site has been located: Travel to Kopis in The Hoplos System in 
    the Hades Nexus.  The geth have gotten to the site first and erected a 
    kinetic barrier around it.  You will need to disable all four generators 
    powering the field in order to get inside.  Just follow the blue cables to 
    locate each generator.  Three of the generators are on a plateau surrounding 
    the site, so you will need to do some Hammerhead platforming to reach them.  
    With the barrier down, simply land at the excavation site and enter the 
    complex.
    
    2 - Recover the Artifact
    Grab the element zero along the right side as you enter the facility.  You 
    can recover some logs here detailing what happened to the two researchers, 
    along with some dead bodies at the bottom of the steps.  Access the research 
    terminal for some upgrade data, then hack the nearby computer to reveal the 
    artifact: A Prothean sphere not unlike the one found on Eletania in Mass 
    Effect 1.  Simply examine the relic to recover the artifact and complete the 
    mission.

    Location:     Zeona
    Requirements: Install the Firewalker downloadable content
    
    1 - Missing Research Team
    The MSV Rosalie--carrying a Cerberus research team and a prototype planetside 
    exploration vehicle--has gone missing in the Ismar Frontier.  The cell leader 
    wants you to investigate the team's last known location and recover the 
    vehicle if possible.
    
    2 - The Hammerhead
    Travel to Zeona (Elytsa System in the Ismar Frontier).  A scan of the planet 
    reveals the location of the Hammerhead exploration vehicle, as well as 
    several active data storage sites that may contain information as to the 
    whereabouts of the research team.  When you land, bypass the cargo computer 
    control terminal to access the Hammerhead.
    
    3 - The Storage Sites
    The Hammerhead controls similarly to Commander Shepard, with the addition of 
    a jumping ability.  Note: players of the PC version of Mass Effect 2 may need 
    to restore the default control scheme in order for the Hammerhead to control 
    properly.  The first storage site is straight ahead.  You will be able to 
    identify it by the pillar of blue light extending above it.  Maneuver the 
    vehicle on top of the site, then hold the indicated button to begin acquiring 
    the data.  Doing so will cause the Hammerhead to shift away from the pad, so 
    be ready to correct for this so that the data transfer is not interrupted.  
    From here, use the vehicle's jumping ability to reach the second site above 
    you.  Once you have the data, fire your missiles to clear the path before 
    you.  There is a site immediately to your left when you exit the tunnel.  You 
    will need to jump up to the second level and jump between plateaus to reach 
    the remaining storage sites.  When all the sites have been visited you will 
    be able to call the Normandy for extraction.

    Requirements: Complete "Project Firewalker: Rosalie Lost"
    
    1 - Research Data
    Data recovered from Zeona has revealed several of the research sites used by 
    the Firewalker team.  If you retrace their steps you may be able to find the 
    Prothean site they were looking for.
    
    2 - Survey Sites
    Travel to the Verr System in the Hawking Eta Cluster and land on Corang.  The 
    planet has been overrun by the geth, so you will need to fight your way 
    through them to acquire the data.  Focus on the smallest enemies first, as 
    their fire can actually be the most deadly.  The attacks from the large 
    colossi are much easier to avoid by simply strafing.  The first of five 
    artifact sites is directly ahead of you when you land.  Just eliminate the 
    geth and then collect the data.  Circle around to the left and hop across the 
    islands to reach the second site.  There is also a secondary site where you 
    can obtain some platinum.  Even though the Hammerhead can hover, you will 
    still be destroyed if you spend too much time over the acid.  Jump up the 
    ramps and head through the tunnel to reach site number three.  Launch 
    yourself up the ledge to the left as you entered to reach another secondary 
    site, then press onward to acquire the fourth artifact.  A long ramp nearby 
    will take you up to where you can reach the final artifact.  Be careful in 
    this area however, as there are many enemies in close proximity.  Do not be 
    afraid to retreat if you begin taking too much damage: If you are destroyed 
    you must begin the mission again.

    2 - The Research Station
    Travel to the Yakawa System in the Caleston Rift.  Each data site you find 
    within the crater will earn you some iridium, but the goal of the mission is 
    to locate the abandoned research station, which you can find down at the 
    bottom of the vent after passing through a short tunnel.  Disembark at the 
    docking bay and ascend the ramps.  In the room on the left you can find a 
    wall safe and a datapad.  Past the broken glass there is a door you can 
    bypass to find some refined iridium.  Activating the sensors in the control 
    room will trigger a sudden increase in volcanic activity.  Grab the credits 
    from the locker nearby and then return to the Hammerhead.
    
    3 - Escape the Volcano
    Take your time with the escape section, as a fall into the lava will be 
    fatal.  Remember that you can jump higher when you do not have the boost 
    activated.  Ascend the ramp and make your way through the tunnel.  Jump 
    across the gaps as they present themselves and then make your way through 
    another tunnel.  Do not boost yourself too high on the final jump or you will 
    hit the wall and bounce backwards into the lava.

    then 18 pyjacks per wave).  They will run from the top to the bottom of the 
    screen, and those that get through will eat some of the food stores.  You 
    have twenty shells to use in each round, but the area of effect is large 
    enough that you do not need to be particularly accurate with your aiming

    ==================
    Combat Strategies                                                      32comb
    ==================
    
    1. Know your class
    Each class in Mass Effect 2 has strengths and weaknesses.  Soldiers are the 
    best at using weapons and can absorb the most damage, but lack tech or biotic 
    powers.  Engineers do well against synthetics like mechs or the geth and can 
    overload shields, but are not the best when it comes to combat.  Adepts are 
    great at disabling opponents with their biotic powers, but do not fare as 
    well against enemies with multiple defensive layers.
    
    The other three classes are hybrids of the first three, but every class has 
    its own special abilities.  Make use of your class's unique talents, and you 
    will be more effective in combat.
    
    
    2. Know your enemy
    The strengths and weaknesses of your enemy are important to be aware of.  If 
    you are not sure what you are walking into, a balanced squad is the way to 
    go.  If you do know what enemies you are going to face on a given planet 
    however, consider bringing along characters suited to dealing with that 
    specific enemy type.  For example, team members with tech powers will be most 
    effective when fighting synthetic enemies or enemies with shields.
    
    
    3. Using cover
    Pressing your back against a wall is often the safest thing you can do in 
    combat.  It provides you protection, and allows you the ability to only fire 
    your weapon when it is safe to do so.  However, there are some disadvantages, 
    and it is important to be aware of them.
    
    Not all enemies have ranged weapons, and even some of those that do will have 
    a tendency to charge at you.  In these cases your best bet is to backpedal 
    away, as staying in cover severely limits your mobility and opens you up to 
    melee attacks.  Biotic powers can be vital for dealing with charging enemies.
    
    Additionally, you may want to stay mobile when you are facing a large number 
    of enemies in an open area.  Sometimes big groups will try to surround you, 
    in which case staying in one place is not a good idea.  Cover will not help 
    you if it is not between you and your enemy.
    
    
    4. Using your squad
    This is certain to vary depending on your class, but a few general ideas 
    apply when it comes to using your squad in combat.
    
    First, you should always know what abilities each of your squad members has 
    and how best to use them.  Depending on your settings, your squad may use 
    many of their abilities on their own, which can take the pressure off of 
    inexperienced players to make tactical decisions.  However, your squad will 
    be most effective if you give the orders on what powers to use.  For example, 
    you can have multiple squad members attack a specific enemy, or have one 
    character take out an enemy's armor so you can use your biotic abilities.
    
    You will also be able to use your squad for fire and maneuver tactics.  
    Sending your squad out front to take up a position near the enemy (but still 
    in cover) is a good general rule at the start of many firefights.  Enemies 
    tend to focus their attention on whoever is closest to them, so having your 
    squad protected but also drawing fire from the enemy frees you to flank and 
    finish them.  This is also a good technique for infiltrators or soldiers that 
    are focused on sniper rifle combat.  Sending your squad up ahead can draw 
    enemies out into the open, allowing you to deal with them from a safe 
    distance.
    
    
    5. Improving your odds
    On the higher difficulty levels some of the more aggressive tactics break 
    down.  It becomes a bad idea to run out into open areas, or to fight enemies 
    in places where they can surround you.  Additionally, nearly all the enemies 
    you encounter will have some form of protection in addition to their health 
    bar.  To make up for this, you can revert to the classic RPG tactic of 
    scouting ahead to locate a few enemies, then retreating to a safe place where 
    you can more easily destroy them when they follow you.  This is especially 
    effective in narrow corridors where you can funnel enemies into a tight field 
    of fire.  When playing on Insanity, you need to do whatever it takes to get 
    the job done.
    
    
    6. Bending powers
    Many of the powers in Mass Effect 2 can be manipulated to strike enemies from 
    a certain angle.  For example, by aiming to the left of your target and using 
    Push, your biotic attack will curve towards the enemy and knock them to the 
    right.  You can use this to bend powers around cover or to knock enemies off

    Explosives are your friend.  There are a number of them placed in each area, 
    and it is a shame to let them go to waste.  If an enemy is nearby, shoot the 
    explosive to deal massive damage.  You can also destroy certain objects that 
    enemies take cover behind.  If an enemy is hiding behind destructible cover, 
    try using Overload or shooting it to take away their protection.

    ***************
    
    Fate of the Rachni Queen
        -> If you released the Rachni Queen, then her emissary will contact you 
           on Illium.  She is keeping her promise to raise her children in a 
           hidden place, where they will learn not to repeat the mistakes that 
           let to their near-annihilation.
        -> If you killed the Rachni Queen, there are still rachni in the galaxy 
           (thanks to Cerberus), but they are disorganized and feral.
    
    Fate of Ashley / Kaidan
        -> If he survived the battle on Virmire, Kaidan will be sent on a mission 
           to assist colonies in the Terminus Systems that may be targets for the 
           Collectors.  You encounter him on Horizon, one of these colonies.  If 
           you had a romantic relationship with Kaidan, a photograph of him will 
           sit on the desk in your quarters on the SR-2.  This picture will be 
           turned face-down if you do not remain faithful to him throughout the 
           game.  If Kaidan died on Virmire, a news report on the Citadel will 
           mention that a memorial fund has been established in his honor.
        -> If she survived the battle on Virmire, Ashley will be sent on a 
           mission to assist colonies in the Terminus Systems that may be targets 
           for the Collectors.  You encounter her on Horizon, one of these 
           colonies.  If you had a romantic relationship with Ashley, a 
           photograph of her will sit on the desk in your quarters on the SR-2.  
           This picture will be turned face-down if you do not remain faithful to 
           Ashley throughout the game.  If she died on Virmire, a news report on 
           the Citadel will mention her sacrifice.
    
    Fate of Wrex
        -> If Wrex was killed on Virmire, the traditional and conservative Wreav 
           becomes the leader of Clan Urdnot.
        -> If Wrex survived, he takes over the clan, makes sweeping reforms and 
           begins to unite the other clans under the Urdnot banner.
    
    Fate of the Council
        -> If you saved the Council and made Anderson the human councilor they 
           will offer to reinstate you as a Spectre, though you can decline.
        -> If an all-human Council was formed after the Battle for the Citadel, 
           the other Council species will be more distrustful of humanity.
    
    
    DID YOU KNOW?                                                          34bdid
    -------------
    
    -> There is unique EDI dialogue when you send probes to Uranus (Sol System, 
       Local Cluster).
    
    -> If you imbibe the "Mystery Drink" at Eternity on Illium, the bartender's 
       appearance will change.
    
    -> If you convince Ereba (the asari running the Memories of Illium kiosk) to 
       commit to her boyfriend Charr, you can find them together on Tuchanka.
    
    -> Legion will sometimes dance if you watch him on the Normandy for long 
       enough.
    
    -> If you stand near Joker he will make comments to EDI about the Normandy's 
       status.
    
    -> Tali and Garrus have a unique conversation if you walk up the stairs to 
       level 28 on the Citadel Zakera Ward with them in your squad.
    
    -> You can drink to the point of passing out at the Dark Star Lounge on the 
       Citadel.
    
    -> You can trigger a massive explosion by killing a YMIR mech with a shot to 
       its head.
    
    
    NO ONE LEFT BEHIND                                                     34cnoo
    ------------------
    
    One of the achievements in Mass Effect 2 is awarded for surviving the suicide 
    mission without losing any members of your squad.
    
    In order to do this, you must upgrade the Normandy's shields, armor, and 
    weapons, which you can unlocked by asking Tali, Jacob, and Garrus about ways 
    to improve your chances against the Collectors.  For each upgrade you fail to 
    obtain, one of your squad members will die, so YOU MUST GET ALL THREE 
    UPGRADES in order to satisfy the requirements for the achievement.
    
    The next important factor is obtaining the loyalty of your squad members.  
    While you do not technically need every squad member to be loyal, it is 
    highly recommended if you are attempting to earn the achievement.  The 
    loyalty missions for Jacob, Mordin, Grunt, Garrus, Kasumi, and Legion are 
    straightforward: Completing them is guaranteed to earn the loyalty of these 
    characters.
    
    However, it is possible to complete the missions for Samara, Tali, Thane, and 
    Zaeed without earning their loyalty:
    
        -> In Samara's case, you will miss out on her loyalty if you fail to 
           attract Morinth's attention in the Afterlife VIP area or make poor 
           conversation choices when talking with her.
        -> On Tali's mission, delivering the evidence from the Alerei to the 
           Admiralty Board against Tali's wishes will cost you her loyalty.
        -> You will fail to earn Thane's loyalty if you don't update him on 
           Talid's position while on his loyalty mission.
        -> As for Zaeed, if you chose to save the factory workers you will have 
           to persuade Zaeed at the end of the mission in order to earn his 
           loyalty.
    
    There are also two instances where you can lose a character's loyalty if your 
    Paragon or Renegade skill is not high enough.  After completing the loyalty 
    missions for Miranda and Jack, or Legion and Tali, you will be forced to 
    intervene in a conflict between these two characters.  If you are unable to 
    defuse the situation with your persuasive options, you will lose the loyalty 
    of the character you do not side with.  The Miranda/Jack confrontation 
    requires an especially high Paragon score or a moderate Renegade score, while 
    the Tali/Legion confrontation requires an especially high Renegade score or a 
    moderate Paragon score.
    
    In order to ensure that you do not lose loyalty it is helpful to play the 
    game making entirely Paragon or Renegade decisions, as playing a neutral or 
    "grey" character can make these encounters more difficult.  Leveling up your 
    class-specific power (Combat Mastery, Tech Mastery, Biotic Mastery, Assault 
    Mastery, Operative, or Defender depending on your class) also grants you a 
    boost to your Paragon and Renegade scores.  It also helps to import a 
    character from Mass Effect 1 with a high Paragon or Renegade score, as this 
    will give you a boost to that category at the start of the game.
    
    Once you have a full team of loyal recruits you are ready to hit the Omega 4 
    relay.  When you arrive on the other side, you will have to make a series of 
    decisions that will determine whether or not everyone will survive.
    
    The plan is to split the group into two teams who will assault along parallel 
    corridors, but in order to link up on the other side you will need a 
    specialist to enter the ventilation shaft and open the doors from the other 
    side.  This specialist MUST BE LOYAL in order to survive.  To get the doors 
    open and closed quickly you will need to choose a tech expert:
    
        Good Choices: 
    
            Even among the quarians Tali is considered a brilliant engineer, and 
            she has had extensive experience solving technical challenges.  As a 
            mobile platform, Legion possesses advanced AI computing power far 
            surpassing regular geth.  Kasumi is a master at getting into places 
            undetected.
    
        Poor Choices: 
    
            Mordin is a biologist and geneticist.  Thane is an assassin whose 
            specialties are biotics and sniping.  Garrus and Jacob have some 
            technical skill, but are primarily soldiers.
    
    You will lead one group, so you must decide who will lead the other.  The 
    second fire team leader MUST BE LOYAL as well, or the specialist you sent 
    into the shaft will die.  Naturally, you will want to choose someone with 
    leadership experience:
    
        Good Choices:
    
            Garrus commanded a team of mercenaries on Omega.  Jacob was a 
            Corsair, who has extensive experience working in teams.  Miranda is a 
            Cerberus officer, your second-in-command, and is in charge of the 
            Lazarus Cell.
    
        Poor Choices: 
    
            Mordin is a scientist.  Tali and Legion are tech specialists.  Zaeed, 
            Samara, Jack, Kasumi, and Thane work alone.  Grunt just woke up.
    
    After completing the first section of the Collector base and regrouping with 
    your squad you must select a biotic specialist to escort you through the next 
    chamber.  If you select a biotic who is not loyal, one of the two team 
    members you take with you WILL die:
    
        Good Choices:
    
            Jack was trained to be the most powerful human biotic.  As an asari, 
            Samara has natural biotic talents, which have been augmented by 
            centuries of living as a justicar.  Morinth is an Ardat-Yakshi, a 
            rare and powerful asari who has only become more powerful over her 
            long life.
    
        Poor Choices:
    
            Thane, Miranda, and Jacob all have some biotic skills but could not 
            be considered specialists.  They will not be able to maintain the 
            field for very long.
    
    When it comes to selecting a diversion team leader, the same criteria applies 
    as before.  Any fire team leader except a loyal Garrus or Jacob WILL BE 
    KILLED.  The exception is Miranda, who will survive as fire team leader for 
    this section whether she is loyal or not.
    
    You will also need a specialist to escort the surviving Normandy crew back to 
    the ship.  While it is tempting to choose someone powerful like Grunt, any 
    loyal squad member can make the journey successfully:
    
        Good Choices:
    
            Tali and Mordin have some combat abilities but they are better 
            thinkers than fighters.  Jack and Kasumi are also considered "soft" 
            characters and will be a liability later.  Having these characters 
            around will bring down the collective combat prowess of the team, so 
            sending them back to the ship is a good decision.
    
        Poor Choices:
    
            Grunt, Zaeed, and Garrus are best suited for the task of holding the 
            line later.  You will want to save these characters. 
    
    After traversing the chamber with the seeker swarms you will have to decide 
    who to bring with you when you head to the central chamber.  While those you 
    leave behind do not have to be loyal to survive, those you bring with you 
    MUST BE LOYAL or they will be killed after the final battle:
    
        Good Choices:
    
            "Soft" characters like Tali, Mordin, Jack, or Kasumi.  Bringing them 
            with you means that those you leave behind will not have to worry 
            about protecting them.
    
        Poor Choices:
    
            Grunt, Zaeed, and Garrus are hardened warriors who will do the best 
            job of holding the line.  Specialists like Samara, Morinth, Legion, 
            Jacob, Thane, and Miranda will also do a good job.
    
    If all your squad members are loyal, making these choices will ensure the 
    best possible outcome on the suicide mission.  "No one gets left behind."
    
    
    WALKTHROUGH CONCLUSION                                                 34dwal

    SPOILER WARNING
    
    To this point, I have been intentionally nonspecific about the end of the 
    game.  However, from this point forward I will be discussing the criteria in 
    which certain characters will live or die.  If you do not wish to know this 
    information, stop reading now.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    
    SECTION 14 - Through the Relay                                         34d14t
    
    
    1 - Testing the IFF
    As mentioned previously, after you acquire the Reaper IFF you will be able to 
    complete no more than two missions before the IFF becomes fully integrated 
    with the Normandy's systems.  (It may be fewer, depending on how many 
    unfinished missions you have in your journal.  For example, if you completed 
    all loyalty missions--and did not activate Legion--before obtaining the IFF, 
    then the next part of the story will start.)  The next time you access the 
    galaxy map, EDI will mention that the IFF needs to be tested, and recommends 
    you put all your team members on the shuttle and use it to reach your next 
    destination.  As you might guess, this is a thinly-veiled plot device to get 
    you and your team off this ship.
    
        +2 Paragon - "You thought of everything."
        +2 Renegade - "Let's move!"
    
    2 - "Transmitting?"
    The Reaper IFF contained a virus that begins broadcasting the location of the 
    Normandy to the Collectors.  In the blink of an eye, the Normandy is under 
    attack.  EDI can save the ship, but she needs Joker to manually unlock her 
    sealed databases in the AI core, which is down on deck 3.  Follow the 
    blinking lights in the center of the walkway around to the left of the CIC 
    and into the research lab, where you can find a maintenance shaft you can use 
    to reach deck 3.  If you dawdle or stray too far from the prescribed path, a 
    scion will kill Joker and you will fail the mission.  On deck 3, follow 
    crewman Hawthorne past the elevator and through the medical bay to reach the 
    AI core.  After EDI's hardware is connected you will have to crawl through 
    another duct to reach the engineering sub deck.  Ascend the stairs to the 
    landing, but be careful not to move up until the Collectors have passed by.  
    Open the door and access the controls in front of you to reactivate the drive 
    core.  EDI will open the airlocks to flush any remaining Collectors from the 
    ship: It is too late for the crew, they have already been taken aboard the 
    Collector vessel.
    
        +2 Paragon - "Are you okay, Joker?" 
        +2 Paragon - "Is the virus contained?" / "We need to get the crew back."
        +2 Renegade - "I'm not interested in excuses." 
        +2 Paragon - "I trust it."
        +2 Renegade - "You're equipment, not crew."
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    CONSEQUENCE OF DELAY
    
    When you return to the Normandy, you will have the ability to go through the 
    Omega 4 relay in pursuit of the Collector ship.  If you go on any other 
    missions first, half the Normandy's crew will be killed, including Yeoman 
    Chambers.  If you complete more than three missions after this event, 
    everyone but Chakwas will be killed.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    3 - Through the Relay
    When you are ready, travel to the Omega 4 relay.  There are three upgrades 
    that are critical for keeping your crew alive on the other side: You must 
    have the Heavy Ship Armor, the Multicore Shielding, and the Thanix Cannon.  
    For each of these upgrades you lack, one squad member will be killed.  When 
    you get to the other side of the relay, the Normandy will come under attack 
    from Collector defense drones.  You must select a team and head to the cargo 
    hold to fight the oculus.  Use any heavy weapons ammo you have: There are 
    some power cells you can pick up around the area.  When you do enough damage 
    it will retreat, but will come back after another cutscene.  Just stay in 
    cover when it fires and fire when you get the chance.
    
        +2 Paragon - "The team is strong."
        +2 Renegade - "I don't need to know."
    
    4 - "We need a plan."
    When the Normandy lands on the Collector base, you will convene a meeting of 
    the surviving crew members.  The plan is to split the group into two teams, 
    who will assault along parallel corridors and meet up at the far side.  
    However, the doors are locked from the other side.  You will need a tech 
    specialist to open the doors by traveling through one of the ventilation 
    shafts.  You will want to pick a tech expert, meaning Tali, Legion, or 
    Kasumi.  To lead the second fire team, you will want someone who has 
    leadership experience, meaning Garrus, Miranda, or Jacob.  You should pick 
    team members who are loyal for these roles.  
    
        New Mission: "Collector Base: Infiltration"
    
    5 - To the Rendezvous Point
    Proceed forward until you encounter your first group of Collector drones.  
    There is a path along the left side that you should use to flank them, as it 
    provides excellent cover.  At the other end of the room your specialist will 
    encounter the first of eight heat exchangers blocking his or her path.  You 
    will need to remove each one before the temperature in the shaft becomes too 
    great.  There are two more valves along the wall in the next room, where you 
    will also begin encountering Harbinger.  As always, take out the other drones 
    first to keep him from taking control of another host when he is killed.  
    There is another valve in the corridor between rooms.  The next chamber can 
    be difficult because there are many Collectors in close proximity.  Just 
    stick to cover and focus on one enemy at a time.  Open the fifth valve on the 
    left, then the sixth one at the end of the room.  Enemies will continue to 
    fly in when you reach the final chamber, so just flank around the left side 
    and open the final two valves.
    
    6 - The Normandy Crew
    When you reach the doors you will link up with your specialist and the other 
    fire team.  If you made poor decisions with your two choices on the Normandy, 
    your specialist will be killed trying to get the door closed behind you.  In 
    this room you will find a number of humans trapped in Collector pods.  If you 
    came through the relay immediately after the Collector attack, you will see 
    Lilith from Horizon get liquefied by nanomachines.  If you delayed coming 
    through the relay, you will see the same happen to Kelly Chambers instead.  
    Chakwas will survive either way, but the only chance she and the others have 
    of making it back to the Normandy is if you send one of your team members 
    with them.  As long as said team member is loyal, they will all reach the 
    Normandy safely.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I'd never abandon my crew"
        +2 Renegade - "I didn't come for you."
        +20 Paragon - "I'll have someone escort you."
        +15 Renegade - "The mission comes first."
    
    8 - "Any biotic could handle it."
    In the next phase of the mission, you will once again split into two teams.  
    The route you will take is filled with seeker swarms, and despite the 
    defenses Mordin developed, you will need a specialist to create a biotic 
    field to protect you and your squad.  While you can choose anyone with biotic 
    abilities, the only biotics powerful enough to make it the whole way are Jack 
    and Samara (or her daughter).  The same criteria as last time will apply for 
    choosing a leader for the second fire team.  (The exception is Miranda, who 
    will survive as fire team leader for this section regardless of her loyalty.)

    9 - The Swarm Chamber
    Stick close to your specialist.  Around the first corner you will have to 
    stop to fight off a group of enemies.  Tell your squad to take cover along 
    the railing, and position yourself on the corner by the ramp: Harbinger will 
    attack from this direction.  When they are defeated you will need to signal 
    your specialist to move out.  Descend the ramp and take out the husks and 
    abominations.  You need to stop once again to fight off some Collectors, 
    followed by many more husks and a scion.  You will need to strike a balance 
    between staying mobile versus the husks while using cover to avoid the 
    scion's Shockwave.  When your specialist gets weak and begins to hurry, you 
    will know you are close to the exit.
    
    10 - "Defend this position."
    A poor choice of specialist will result in the death of one of your squad 
    members at the hands of the seeker swarms.  The leader of your second fire 
    team will also die if you made a bad selection.  After a short breather you 
    will need to select two team members to come with you.  These should be loyal 
    squad members.  You will have one last chance to inspire those you leave to 
    guard the door before you depart for the central chamber.
    
        +2 Paragon - "We must honor the fallen."
        +2 Renegade - "People died. Make it count." 
        +2 Paragon - "The galaxy is depending on us."
        +2 Renegade - "Feel sorry for the Collectors."
        Mission Complete: "Collector Base: The Long Walk"
    
    11 - Platform Hopping
    As each new platform flies in, kill all the enemies and then move up in 
    preparation for the next one.  Biotics can be particularly useful for 
    knocking drones off the ledges.  The final platform will have three 
    abominations and two scions.  Fortunately, there is more than enough cover to 
    negate their Shockwaves if you can handle the abominations quickly.  When all 
    the enemies are dead, activate the console on the final platform.  
    
        +2 Paragon - "We can't let it survive."
        +2 Renegade - "Let's take it down."
    
    12 - The Central Chamber
    In the main chamber, take cover off to the right, and eliminate the 
    Collectors that arrive.  Each time you eliminate a wave of enemies you will 
    be able to take a shot at the Reaper's weak points.  If you are quick you 
    should be able to destroy more than one per cycle.  When the Reaper falls, 
    you will be contacted by the Illusive Man.  Rather than destroying the 
    station, he wants you to set off a radiation pulse that will eliminate all 
    organic life within the blast radius, but leave the base itself intact.  
    Consider his motivations, then make your choice.
    
        +2 Paragon - "I didn't do it alone."
        +2 Renegade - "I'm just getting started." 
        +2 Paragon - "This place is an abomination."
        +2 Renegade - "You think it can help?"
        +2 Paragon - "How can I trust you?" 
        +2 Paragon - "This doesn't feel right."
        +2 Renegade - "Are you sure?" 
        +15 Paragon - "No. We don't need it."
        +15 Renegade - "OK, let's take it and use it."
    
    13 - The Larva
    It's not over yet.  The Reaper is active after all, and it will claw its way 
    back up to the platforms.  There are several weak points on the Reaper's body 
    that you will have to aim for: If you have any ammo for your heavy weapon, 
    now is the time to use it.  Let your squad keep the Collectors busy so you 
    can focus exclusively on damaging the Reaper.  When it gets low on health, it 
    will begin taking down some of the platforms, so you will have to displace.  
    You can stick to the center platform to avoid this attack.  The Reaper also 
    tends to stay down longer when it is about to take down a platform, so be 
    alert for this attack.  If you run out of ammo, look for some on the remains 
    of the Collectors you have killed.
    
    14 - Escape to the Normandy
    The Reaper is defeated, but it will take the platforms down with it.  Your 
    squad members will only survive the fall if they were loyal to you.  In the 
    end you will have to jump to the Normandy and will end up hanging on for dear 
    life.  If two or more team members survived they will be able to pull you to 
    safety.  Afterwards, sit back and enjoy the ending sequence.
    
    
    CONGRATULATIONS!  You have completed MASS EFFECT 2!
