Mass Effect: Andromeda [cheats]
Reddit user Adameme has offered his computer's specifications, which allows you to have a good frame rate and a good looking game without sacrificing too much of the graphics.
Here's the tip:
Settings Base: Lowest
Anti-Aliasing: FFXA (without AA, jagged edges are painfully noticeable. Having
at least this one makes everything look a lot more digestible without too much
of a performance nuke.)
Env./terrain quality: Medium (this is the only 'Quality' setting I have above
Lowest, as I value the visual detail of Andromeda's beautiful new worlds a lot!)
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Resolution Scale: Auto 720p
Sell all Salvage:
You’ve probably dug through a lot of containers, and hopefully you have some
items that are valued as “high.” You’ll also want to sell other items you don’t
use (weak armor and weapons) as your beginning inventory slots fill quickly.
Reset skill points:
On the Tempest spaceship, go down the ladder to the med bay. After talking to
the doctor, look for a large machine in the corner of the room with a human
skeleton on it. Interact with the machine to respec your character. The first
reset costs 20 credits, the second costs 520 credits, and it gets gradually
more expensive for each additional one. During open world travel, you can
quickly teleport back to the Tempest while driving the Nomand vehicle.
Liara T'Soni Easter Egg:
Go to "Hyperion - Habitation Deck" on the Nexus and interact with the Archive
System. Select "General logs", "Asari archaeologist", and "Dr. Liara T'Soni"
to listen to audio logs from Liara T'Soni. She is an asari researcher who
appeared in all previous Mass Effect games.
Infinite weapons and items:
There is an orange storage crate in the room next to the shop on the Nexus at
the beginning of the game. However, it disappears after completing EOS. Open
it, take all but one item, save, and then reload the save. The orange crate
will be restocked. Repeat this exploit as many times as desired. You can get
high level weapons from the orange crate. You can also break down the weapons
and items for unlimited resources or sell them to get an unlimited amount of
money. Note: It is highly recommended to create a save before starting this
exploit, just in case you accidentally take all the items from the crate.
Additionally, this exploit was performed on an unpatched version of the game.
It may eventually get patched. To avoid not being able to use this exploit,
either do not install new patches before using it or delete the patches. You
can avoid patches being installed by disconnecting from the internet until you
are ready for the game to install new patches.
Easy rare items:
Once you get close to a chest/crate/cache, the game locks the specific items
you will get from it. However, if you save the game a sufficient distance
awayfrom the chest, the loot inside will still be random. Thus, save the
game a decent distance from a chest, then open it. If you do not want the
items in the chest, reload the saved game and keep trying until you get some
desired rare items.
Once you are on the Tempest spaceship, go to the Research and Development terminal next to Liam to learn and craft weapons and armor. The iconic N7 armor from the original trilogy can be found under the Milky Way galaxy tab and requires a total of 250 Milky Way research points to unlock the entire set. The chest piece costs 100 points and the other three pieces cost 50 each. The N7 armor is also upgradeable for additional research points. The N7 chest piece increases shields by 10%, biotic power damage by 8%, and biotic recharge speed by 15% after fully upgraded. The N7 arms, legs, and helmet have the same bonuses and provide 7% increased shields and biotic power damage after a full upgrade. Wearing the complete and fully upgraded set provide 31% increased shields, 29% biotic power damage, and 15% recharge speed.
Pathfinder helmet and Platinum Nomad skin:
To get the Platinum Nomad skin, simply sign up on the Andromeda Initiative website.To get the Pathfinder helmet, login to your Andromeda Initiative account, sign up for the newsletter, and watch all six training videos. The videos cannot be skipped or even closed shortly after they begin. In order to qualify for the reward, each video needs to be entirely viewed. The Andromeda Initiative videos help explain the backstory of the game. Once you have viewed all six videos, both the Pathfinder helmet and Platinum Nomad skin will be unlocked. To obtain the items in-game, progress through the story until you have reached the Tempest. All rewards can be claimed from the computer inside the Pathfinder's quarters on the Tempest. After
obtaining the items, the Pathfinder helmet can immediately be used. To use the
Platinum Nomad skin, you first need to unlock the Nomad rover through the mission
on EOS. You can then change the Nomad skin using any forward station.
Increase inventory capacity:
You can unlock extra inventory space shortly after reaching EOS (first planet).
After colonizing the planet and choosing between the science or military outpost, you are introduced to the AVP system on the Nexus. You will get AVP points for completing objectives, such as additional tasks and Heleus missions. These can be spent to release additional Cryo pods and earn bonuses. Once you have the ability to waken extra members of the Nexus crew, you can unlock a perk to increase your item limit and carrying capacity. Navigate to the Commerce Pods section of the menu (you are automatically introduced to the menu through story progression), and select "Trade Capacity" to find it.
First, use the "Infinite credits" glitch to get lot of credits. Then, go to a
populated area with merchants, like planet Aya. Purchase all the desired ultra
rare, rare, and uncommon resources from the merchants. Then, save the game and
reload it for the merchant's inventory to be restocked.
Repeat this as many times as desired.
Hold the Y or Triangle while in the Nomad and Ryder will be extracted instantly
whilst exploring. This is a quick way to leave a planet without traveling to the
