Scanning planets in Mass Effect Andromeda can be a long and tiresome tasks. If you want to cut time and you’re wondering what each planet contains check out our Mass Effect Andromeda Planet Scanning Guide for a list of all the systems we’ve discovered in the game and what secrets, materials and other valuable items can be found at each planet.
The Mass Effect Andromeda Planet Scanning feature offers lucrative rewards but it’s frustratingly slow due to the travel times between each of the different systems and planets – even if the vistas are fantastic. You have to approach each planet or space anomaly at least once in order to reach 100% completion of a particular zone but if you’re not too bothered about reaching that stat, or you’re after some specific loot, our Mass Effect Andromeda Planet Scanning Guide lists all of the systems we’ve discovered, the different planets and the potential loot you receive for exploring the system.
There are several methods of finding rare and valuable items when planet scanning. First, when you arrive in a system for the first time, pay attention to see if you hear “anomaly detected” or something similar. This means you have to scan the system itself, not an individual planet, in order to find certain anomalies – such as black holes, Element Zero deposits etc. Then when scanning a planets you can tell instantly if there is loot as again you’re given the “anomaly detected”. If you scan a planet and don’t hear any comment, there’s nothing there.
Below is a list of what every planet contains and what system they are in.
