Mass Effect Andromeda Remnant VI

The Remnant VI skill in the Tech tree is actually only unlocked by doing a special side quest given to players by Peebee. The skill summons Zap, similar to how engineers can summon turrets, but the friendly Remnant drone actually moves around in combat, helping Ryder and team mates.

To acquire the skill, players must first complete the Vault on Eos, recruit Peebee into the squad and then talk to her aboard the Tempest. Peebee lives inside one of the escape pods next to the Tempest bridge. After talking to her, players will get an email titled Rem-Tech from Peebee.

The email tasks players with recovering some Remnant technology from a site on planet Voeld. The quest marker leads players to a monolith site where they will need to defeat some Remnant Observers and Breachers. Once the enemies have been defeated, players can get to work on solving the Remnant Decryption Puzzle. The puzzle solution is shown in the picture below:

Solving the puzzle will add Peebee’s rem-tech to players inventory which they need to take back to Peebee board the Tempest. Peebee will ask players to meet her in her apartment on the Nexus. When players go there, they will finally unlock the Remnant VI skill in their tech tree, allowing them to summon a friendly Remnant Observer.

The Remnant VI has the following upgrades available as players assign more skill points into the tree:

  • Rank 2: 15% increased health
  • Rank 3: 15% increased beam damage
  • Rank 4 : 40% increased Health Regen OR 30% Health Regen delay reduction
  • Rank 5: 30% increased beam damage OR 100% increased health
  • Rank 6: Detonating missiles that deal 90 damage OR improved beam for added Shield Damage
