Like every RPG, Mass Effect 3 is filled with glorious items that are usually way out of your price range. Have you seen that awesome set of armor for 50,000 credits? Or maybe you have your eye on that devastating Sniper Rifle for 250,000, either way, this Mass Effect 3 How To Earn Credits Fast guide will give you some basic tips on getting a good boost to your income early on in the game.
To start with, the quickest way to earn cash is to pick it up. Yes it’s that simple. There’s dozens of planets where people seemed to have just left 10,000 credits laying around on the floor, and luckily for you, your scanner can pick it up. Then it’s just up to the probe to finish the job. Below is a list of each planet that we’ve discovered so far that includes the cache of 10,000 credits. For a more in-depth explanation of scanning and probing, or what else you can find on the planets, check our Mass Effect 3 Planet Guide
Sigurds Cradle – Decoris – Leana
Hades Gama – Antaeus – Trebin
Hades Gama – Cacus – Chohe
Hades Gama – Dis – Kensal
Shrike Abyssal – Xe Cha – Zada Ban
Minos Wasteland – Fortis – Pietas

You have access to most of these areas pretty early on, there are more caches of credits but they require you to go a bit further into the game. So far, this is an easy 80,000 credits. There’s usually free fuel located nearby, if you don’t find it, use our Planets Guide to locate them.
