Mass Effect 3 weapons and armor guide



M-92 Mantis Sniper Rifle: Turn right just after dropping from the first ledge. It’s next to the corpse.

M-4 Shuriken Sub-machine Gun: Inside the base in the security control room. Look on the ground near one of the corpses.

Ariake Technologies Gauntlets: Inside the base in the security control room. Check the shelf near where you first enter.

Kassa Fabrication Chestplate: As you make your way along the roof of the base, look for this upgrade to the left of a ladder you’ll need to climb.

M-15 Vindicator: From where you find the Shotgun Shredder mod, check the other side of the room, left of the exit door.


M-97 Viper Sniper Rifle: Among the crates in the middle of the turian camp.

Armax Arsenal Shoulder Guard: In the pod with a weapons bench, adjacent to the General’s.

Hahne-Kedar Greaves: In the pod to your right as you’re leaving the turian camp for the communication tower.

M-27 Scimitar Shotgun: Next to the barrier on the left as you’re leaving the turian camp.

Sniper Rifle Enhanced Scope I: Near the medigel container found near where you enter the turian camp (while it’s under siege).

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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

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

    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.
