Mass Effect Andromeda - Save Krogan Scouts Or Save Pathfinder Raeka
Another major choice you will get in Mass Effect Andromeda is between saving the Krogan scouts or Pathfinder Raeka. One helps the Korgans out while the other helps out the Salarians. Check out this guide to find out if you should save the Korgan Scouts or save Pathfinder Raeka in Mass Effect Andromeda.

If you choose to save Pathfinder Raeka you will have to fight with her to the Salarian captives. This is a pretty big fight so take your time and stick behind cover. There is one of those shield Kett at the end, make sure you don’t get caught in his melee field or it could be game over. You and the extra Salarians escape and the Salarian Ark makes it out as well. On the bridge Pathfinder Raeka will say sorry for making you choose to save her. Drack will not be happy about it and tell the Pathfinder she has to earn it. Drack has to explain to his clan why you left the scouts behind. More importantly, they are still under Archon control and that means more Behemoth Korgan like the one you faced on the ship. This is one of the first real choices that you know what the outcome will be. The Salarians will, of course, be very happy with you. There is also a brief cut scene showing the Krogan still under Archon control going into the changing chamber. Kallo will be very happy that you saved his Pathfinder as well.

If you choose to save the Krogans, you get the same fight as you would with Raeka but with a Krogan at your side instead. When you rescue the Krogan Ryder tries to contact Raeka, she doesn’t answer and he says I’m sorry. Instead of talking with Raeka on your ship you will talk to Captain Hayjer. He will be next in line to be the Pathfinder for the Salarians. Drack will be very pleased with you helping his scouts. Ryder comments about the Salarian’s being left behind and Drack will tell Ryder to focus on what went right. Instead of Krogans you see the Kett using the Salarians, this might mean you will get enemy mutated Salarians later. This does mean you shouldn’t have to deal with Krogan Behemoths fighting to the Kett since you freed the scouts. If you speak to Kallo about it, he will be sad about Pathfinder Raeka but he won’t freak out or anything over it.

When you return to the Nexus, Director Tann will ask you for a few words. When you go to speak with the leadership on the Nexus Tann will not be happy if you leave the Pathfinder behind. Captain Hayjer will come to back you when you talk about your plan to get through Meridian, but Tann shuts him down. If you save the Pathfinder then of course Kesh will be upset and Tann will be pleased. Pathfinder Raeka will come in and back your plan but again, Tann shuts her down. I think if I had more Pathfinders at this point they would have jumped in as well but I only had the Salarian one.

During the last Battle the Krogan scouts will come aid you for a couple fights if you help them out during this part. If you saved the Salarians, they will come help you but you also have to deal with Behemoth Krogans in the last fight.

This is the first time I actually felt my choices were coming together for something bigger. If anything else changes I will be sure to update the guide. Check back soon for more Mass Effect Andromeda Guides.

Johnny Hurricane's Gamer Biography


  1. Pretty much bs on the developers side, why Krogans have to be sooo damn sad and pissed at me after I went through trouble to make peace with them on Elaaden, did all the sh*t for them, made them happy, got their ship back, their botanist/gardener, or whoever he was, and I just left few scouts in a comparison to Salarians who fought for freedom. Sure Krogans have history, but at that given situation Drack should know better and not be so selfish, few Krogan scouts wont help them to survive the damn extinction they had and now especially with their numbers so much more reduced with the travel to Milky Way, since they still are way more in MW than in Andromeda.
    Their responses really makes this unreasonable and annoying, while at the same time there are practical reasons to why not go for Salarians, while at the same time having experienced Pathfinder is the only good reason, because awkwardly and coincidentally enough EVERY PATHFINDER DIED AND HAD TO GIVE THEIR ROLE TO THE NEXT IN LINE…….who came with that stupid idea? couldn’t they leave one or two Pathfinders? No, they all had to die….ALL…doesn’t make sense, might as well just destroy one Ark completely and call quits.

    1. I save the the Salarian pathfinder, could care less about the Krogans. If the game would allow me I would shoot Drack when he grabs me by the throat the first time you meet him, and he invites himself, I had nothing to do with his invite.
      Even if you save the Krogan Scouts and give the Krogan Colony the stupid looking superglued together Drive Core……Kesh on the Nexus sides against you and your A.I. and Sam. So might as well just piss them off good.

      Krogans earn all they get……….Give me that drive core NOW!! Hand it over!! Really? I do not like your attitude and think I will just keep it……….see you around, enjoy your planet full of sand……..I am level 78 and do not need your experience points or your B.S. Want the drive core?? Change your attitude.

      Lol…..not worried about Krogan Bemo’s either……..my Piranha shotgun eats them for lunch. Just adds a bit more fun to the game.

      Yep it gets old the way the developers wrote the game, Combat is lots of fun and very enjoyable but the writing really, really sucks. In NG plus I just ignore the most of it, do the main missions and run around with Cora and PeeBee……..I have to tolerate Jaal to advance the game but just as soon as I can ignore him…..I ignore him also…..and Liam says I got demoted a dozen times……..I wonder why?? What an idiot.

      Well gotta go………my face is tired.


  2. The first Krogan you meet (Drack) grabs you by the throat. In the real world you do not grab an skilled explorer in the Wildlands by the throat as you will get a gut full of lead. That is your first meeting with a Krogan and it is not a good one. If the game would allow I would drop my hand to my sidearm and kill him where he stands. Do not grab me by the throat.

    Then you wade through all the nonsense and meet Overlord Morda…….that also turns your opinion to ……..oh my what a bunch of idiots are the Krogans. And when you finally have the so called Drive Core, this Morda is not nice and demands you turn it over…….Right Now!!! Sorry but I think I will keep it. I really, really do not like your attitude and you have done nothing to cause me to trust you.

    Later or whenever you inform the nexus of the trip to Meridian Kesh also turns on you and raises objections about your A.I and Sam. So once again a Krogan does not support you. And she will do this even if you do save the Krogan Scouts and give them the Drive Core, she will still turn against you.

    So I will save the Salarian Pathfinder and I will keep the Drive Core. I have had a belly full of Krogans. Oh and I do not have Gay sex with aliens either…….in this game I became a celibate Monk.

    Hey bring on the Krogan Berserkers……….my shotgun build just eats them up. No problem at all and just makes the game more fun. I also do not make a deal with Primus……..more Kett? Bring them on as that is just more fun. Killing Kett is a good hobby of mine. Grin!!

    I have no love for Tann……..however the Krogan earn all they get. If they had a better attitude perhaps it would go better for them. If you want that Drive Core play nice and perhaps you will get it…….as your attitude has shown…….I will keep it. Nothing but sand and exiles on that planet anyway. When Meridian is activated EOS blooms and everyone not staying in Meridian can go vacation on EOS……..I do not need a planet full of sand and ill tempered Krogans.
