Mass Effect: Andromeda’s multiplayer not only is fun by itself, it can also help out your single-player campaign. Here are some basic multiplayer tips and tricks we’ve picked up from playing the multiplayer of Andromeda so far.
Always be leveling! Your character is going to start as a Level 1, so make sure you are always spending your skill points to make yourself stronger. If you unlock a new character, say an Asari or Krogan, you are going to be starting back over with a Level 1 character, regardless of how much you have played before. Make sure you don’t have any skill points hanging around, not getting used.
If you don’t like the choices you’ve made while upgrading your characters, you can always respec. To do this, go to the store and find the Character Respec item in the Item Store section. This will allow you to reset a character’s skill selections, so you can pick the ones you actually want.
You’ll also be earning a few different currencies that can be spent in the store. MP Credits are the most basic, with a number of different packs for sale using MP Credits. Mission Funds can be used to buy specific items like a Revive Pack or an Ammo Pack. Lastly, Andromeda Points can be spent on big packs, like the Expert Pack and Premium Pack.
Don’t forget to check in on the Rewards tab once you complete missions!
When playing, make sure you revive your fallen squadmates. You may not enjoy having to help carry a player who isn’t as leveled up as you, but even Bronze-level missions are pretty hard in the final rounds. You are going to need as many guns as possible to take down the stronger enemies.
Speaking of reviving squadmates, try to make sure you’re always stocked on Revive Packs. These allow you to bring yourself back into a fight if there are no squadmates nearby who can heal you in time. Revive Packs can be found in the store for five Mission Fund points.
It also helps to find where the ammo and health reload stations are for each map. Getting familiar with these locations will help you when you are running low on ammo, and in the middle of a dangerous wave of enemies.
Try not to remain in one location for too long. Mass Effect: Andromeda is a very quick-moving game, and regardless of the enemies you are fighting, they all have ways to sneak right in and flush you out from any cover you happen to be behind. Don’t allow yourself to get cornered, and don’t get comfortable for too long.
It helps to have a balanced team of Combat, Tech and Biotic squadmates if you don’t know what challenge you are about to face, but if you do, it helps even more to tailor your team to that. For example, a fight against the Outlaws won’t have as many tech-based enemies. Biotic squadmates are going to be best for that. Doing a quickstart match will put you in a random mission, whereas making a custom match will allow you to pick the enemy type you are about to face.
