    Similar to what SakuyaFM posted, the player has two chances to collect the M-22 Eviscerator at Grissom Academy, imported a save in which you saved David Archer at the end of Project Overlord. The M-22 probably took the place of the Mattock because this was on a playthrough with my Vanguard. No doubt, the weapon found in the security office is directly related to what class of character you're playing.

    The Hahne-Kedar Gauntlets are purchased from Kanala Exports. Mystery solved.

    The Hahne-Kedar gauntlets can only be bought. I have to go through the whole game again to find which shop carries the armor piece and exactly which mission they appear after.

    You can buy them directly after the Priority:Rannoch mission

    You missed the pistol magazine upgrade that to the right of the building with weapon bench in the first camp

    This guide is for weapons and armor only, and doesn't include upgrades, which can be easily purchased.

    hey, could you guys add the N7 weapons, seeing as they'll be avaible in MP as a reward for that reaper thing?

    He forgot the Revenant. You can get that on the Citadel in the Presidium Commons in the store. If you miss some of these weapons, the Citadel will have some of these.

    Adding more info, you can get a second Mattock if you imported a save from ME2 with Project Overlord, and have saved David Archer. He will unlock a security office directly behind the students. If you do this in two playthroughs, you only have to spend for the Mattock IX and X upgrade in the Normandy.
