Mass Effect Andromeda Additional Tasks Guide

Mass Effect Andromeda Additional Tasks Guide
Mass Effect Andromeda boasts a massive universe filled with challenging and rewarding side quests, missions and other optional content. This Mass Effect Andromeda Additional Tasks Guide focuses on the Additional Tasks that Ryder can receive when aboard the Nexus, exploring planets or interacting with NPCs.

There are several different types of missions in Mass Effect Andromeda. Priority Ops are missions based around the main story, allies and relationships as based on experiences with your squad members, Heleus Assignments are the more traditional side-quests and additional tasks are more minor tasks that typically revolve around settling minor disputes, gathering intelligence or learning more about the universe.

Mass Effect Andromeda Additional Tasks Guide – Nexus

Getting To Know The Nexus
This is the first Additional Task you receive in Mass Effect Andromeda, although it’s not all that obvious you have it unless you read the journal. It’s a simple additional task, just requiring Ryder to speak with four different people on the Nexus. Make sure to track the quest via the journal and follow the objective markers to speak with Tann, Kesh, Kandros, Addison and the scientists.
Hitting Rocks For Science
This Additional Task can be unlocked after completing Getting to Know the Nexus. Speak with Chief Lucan who can be found next to Professor Herik directly after completing the previous Additional Task and he will ask you to mine some rocks. Interact with the nearby console and activate the Geophysics VI: Beta Build.

You cannot complete this quest when you first reach Eos as they are all in high radiation zones. As you move through the game reaching different planets, you’ll notice them on the map so just keep chasing them down.

Missing Scientists
This Additional Task can be unlocked after speaking with Dr. Aridana, another of Professor Herik’s assistants. Board the Tempest and travel to the Eriksson system. Once there use the scanners to scan the area, you’ll locate a destroyed ship. Inspect the ship to get the information Dr. Aridana needed. Be sure to check out our Mass Effect Andromeda Planet Scanning guide for information on each planet.

The Lost Brother
Once you have access to the Tempest return to the Nexus and head to the Cryo Bay area. Once there speak with Nigel McCoy and he asks you to place a pendant on Eos. When you land on Eos progress with the main story until you unlock the vehicle, the Nomad. Then head to the North of Site 1: Promise. You have to place the pendant on a cliff overlooking the site.

Path Of A Hero
Once you’ve progressed through the story and have access to the Tempest, check an email terminal. These can be found on the Bridge and in Ryder’s personal quarters. Read your emails to receive a message from Keri, she wants an interview. Return to the Nexus and speak with Keri. This is an ongoing Additional Task that provides many opportunities to either be brutally honest or give a “politicians response” to the questions.

After you complete the events on Eos return to the Tempest and check your email for a message from Keri. This is another ongoing mission, you usually get updates after big parts of the story, such as exploring a new world or placing down an outpost so just keep checking the journal for updates and return to speak with Keri.

Eventually you’ll learn that Keri gets arrested. You’ll need to head to the cells in Operations. Following that keep checking emails for further developments. You can Romance Keri, if you can call it that, it’s pretty much just a loading screen.

Broken Wires
Broken Wires
The Broken Wires Additional Task is available after you complete Eos and open up more of the Nexus ship. Head to the Common Area – Upper Floor and speak with the guy there to begin the mission. Follow the mission objectives until you reach a room that has a large bug inside. Scan the bug to finish the mission.

Comparatively Alien
Comparatively Alien
This Additional Task is available after you clear Eos and visit Angara’s home world of Aya for the first time. This is an ongoing mission, you need to scan 20 different wildlife across Andromeda. When you visit each planet be sure to use the scanner on native wildlife to fill it up to 10.

You get 200 Credits and 1330 XP.

Better Crafting
Better Crafting
This Additional Task is available after you clear Eos and visit Angara’s home world of Aya for the first time. Check out the Vortex bar. Grab the mission and follow the objective marker to the small box. Scan it to obtain the hops and then return.

The quest will remain in your quest log until some time later when you reach the planet Havarl. As with most of the other quests in Mass Effect Andromeda, whenever you reach a new planet just check the map for objective points and hit all of the ones related to your mission.

Boosting The Signal
Boosting The Signal
This Additional Task is available after you clear Eos and visit Angara’s home world of Aya for the first time. Speak with Davis Qar, the radio host to begin this mission. He wants you to play receivers on populated planets so head down to Eos first and plant the first receiver. This is very similar to other ongoing assignments, you cannot complete it until you reach all of the planets.

Note: You cannot place Eos’ signal tower until you complete Voeld as that clears all the radiation.

Cultivation

Beer Run
Check back on the Nexus after completing the Priority Ops Hunting the Archon. You’ll find an NPC on the North of Operations, she’ll ask you to find some beer. Head to Kadara and visit the bar in the Market. There’s a datapad nearby, inspect it to open the next objective.

Check back on the Nexus after completing the Priority Ops Hunting the Archon. Speak with Turian pathfinder on the South side of Operations.
The Witnesses
Check back on the Nexus after completing the Priority Ops Hunting the Archon. Check your email and you should receive this mission. It’s a simple mission. Head to Aya and check the map for the objective markers before speaking with each of the witnesses.
The Angaran Initiative
I’m not totally sure when this was unlocked but at some point in the story Director Tann tells you that the Angara have opened an embassy on Aya. Check in on the embassy to proceed with this mission.
Investigating Embezzlement
I got this mission post-game. Aboard the Nexus speak with the Dockmaster in the Common Area and he will ask you to investigate suspicious cargo. Head over to the Hydroponics area and scan a box there to complete the mission.
The Model Of The Spheres
Dr. Aridana has this mission for you, I picked it up post-game but it may be available earlier. Check out our planet scanning guide for each of the different systems and how to unlock them. You have to interact with the nearby terminal. This quest is very buggy. You may have problems interacting with the console and upon completing it, the quest entry disappears from your journal with no further reward or mention.

Mass Effect Andromeda Additional Tasks Guide – Eos

Note: When you first explore Eos you can only get the planet to approximately 84% viability. This means there are large portions of the map you cannot explore and several assignments you cannot complete. After you complete Voeld return to Eos to have more of the planet to explore.

The Ghost Of Promise
The Ghost Of Promise
When you arrive on Eos proceed with the main story until you activate the first Glyph’s on the large alien structure. From there follow the road West, soon you will run into a group of Remnants on the roadside. Clear them out and inspect the datapad to begin this quest.

We’re updating this as we go so check back soon. There’s a chance the remaining items are in the higher level radiation zones, which you cannot reach yet.

Naming The Dead
Once you have access to the Nomad on Eos you can explore the areas that have higher levels of radiation. You want to progress to the second camp and scan nearby for bodies, there’s a Turian corpse. Once you have scanned your first body you unlock this Additional Task. You are challenged with scanning every colonist body to provide closure to those aboard Nexus. After finding the initial body check the following locations for other bodies.

Naming-The-Dead-1
This body can be found atop the stairs on the South edge of Site 2: Resilience. Use the red tree as reference point.

Naming-The-Dead-2
This body can be found on the East side of Site 2: Resilience. It’s outside the radiation barrier by about 10m. It’s East of the previous body.

Naming The Dead Body 5
This is another body that can be found within Site 2: Resilience. Check towards the Northern side, between the two large red trees.

Naming-The-Dead-3
The next body can be found in the area that contains the third component for Heleus Assignment. You have to fight through the enemies and then disable the shields to enter the structure and claim the component. In the room with the component is another body on a table.

Naming The Dead 4
This body can be found at the second set of Remnant ruins you have to visit for the main story. Check the West side of the ruins, behind the health box, for a human body on the floor. Scan it to locate and return this body.

Naming The Dead Body 6
For the 6th body check the Remnant ruins to the West of Site 1. Stick to the road and you’ll see the body on the side of the road, check the image above for exact location.

Naming The Dead Final Body
The final body can be found at Site 1. After you have cleared most of Eos return to Site 1 and you will see Clancy on the North side of town. Directly opposite Clancy’s position is a large, square, standing tower – part of the building. At the bottom of that is the final body.

Data Trail
This Additional Task begins whenever you find your first Remnant Core on Eos. There are a number of these scattered throughout the planet. Some of the Remnant camps are not active until you complete the story section on Eos so I would suggest doing this side quest after finishing the Eos outpost. Check below for the locations.

Waking Up To The Future
This Additional Task is available after you construct your first outpost on Eos. On the East side of the outpost you’ll find a general merchant. There is a terminal in that building that you can interact with. Use it to read a message regarding waking a daughter from cryo. Head back and speak with Addison on the Nexus and then speak with Vladimir Brecka. You may need to spend your points at the nearby terminal first.

Speak with him and ask him to wake Tech Darket Tiervian. Return to the outpost on Eos and speak with Darket and receive special coordinates to find anomalies in the Pytheus system. Head back out to space and scan the Pytheus system

Make sure you inspect all of them to get the actual culprit at the end of the mission.

Mass Effect Andromeda Additional Tasks Guide – Voeld

White Death
During the main Heleus Missions on Voeld you’ll be tasked with heading to Techiix. I advise saving before you do. When you get close a sniper asks you to scan for a Wraith. It’s North East of the base in some rocks. It can be buggy so that’s why it’s a good idea to save. Scan to find the Wraith and then remain on the target until the sniper takes it out. Return to the sniper and hand in the mission.
