Mass Effect Andromeda Weapons

Mass Effect Andromeda Weapons Guide to help you learn everything you need to know about all weapons types, required crafting materials, and bluepring costs.

There are different types of weapons that can be acquired in Mass Effect Andromeda. These weapons include pistols, sniper rifles, assault rifles, melee weapons, etc. Moreover, these weapons are categorized on the basis of their origin.

Depending on the origin of a weapon, a specific weapon can be energy-based or ammo-based. You can find blueprints of a weapon and craft them with required materials.

Mass Effect Andromeda Weapons Guide

Some blueprints in Mass Effect Andromeda don’t become available for purchase until certain pre-requisites are met.

Angaran Equipment blueprints become available after the completion of ‘A Trail of Hope’ and Nomad Upgrades blueprints become available as players continue to gain Character Level.

In our Mass Effect Andromeda Weapons Guide, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about weapons including blueprint costs, required materials, and unique properties – if any!

Mass Effect Andromeda Weapons

Since concepts like damage, rate-of-fire, accuracy, clip size, etc. aren’t new, I won’t touch them in the guide. There are, however, some things that I want to talk about!

Unique Properties
There are several weapons in the game which boast unique properties. For instance, the Dhan fires a single projectile that deals an incredible amount of damage. When choosing a weapon, you should always keep these unique properties in mind.

Blueprint Cost
The blueprint cost that I’ve mentioned below is the amount of Research Data required to purchase the blueprint of the first rank.

Weight
This is something that you should always consider before choosing a weapon. If you’ve heavy weapons in your inventory and exceed the weapon-weight capacity of your character, your power recharge speed will decrease.

Due to this, if you’re running a Biotics build, you should always consider pistols or other light-weight weapons. Do note that you can increase the weapon-weight capacity by investing in Combat Fitness skill.

Augmentations
Augmentation can be applied to Rank-2 schematics through Research & Development console. The augmentations can provide you with one or more benefits and are returned upon a weapon’s deconstruction. Keeping this in mind, try to experiment with augmentations as much as you possibly can.

Materials
You need crafting materials in order to craft a weapon. All these items are returned whenever a weapon is deconstructed. For more information on where to farm these crafting materials, you can refer to our Crafting Materials Farming Locations Guide by heading over to the link.
