Mass Effect Andromeda Armor

Scour the world for credits as you go through various story missions; sell any items out to keep a good flow of cash coming in. Once you’re ready, it’s time to invest in some upgrades and new gear.

You will realize how important better gear becomes as you move on from one area to the other; challenge awaits, and those who refrain from improvement will soon begin to face insurmountable tasks.

Armor Tiers
Your armor’s efficiency is differentiated with the help of tier rating. Armor tiers have specific requirements that need to be fulfilled, the first two tiers are free of that restriction; but the third, fourth and fifth tier require you to be level 10, 20, and 30 respectively.

Similar to weapons, there are a couple of things I want to talk about the armor in Mass Effect Andromeda.

Augmentations
A piece of armor can have augmentations through the Research & Development console. When it comes to armor, however, the first rank of armors can have augmentations.

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.
