Mass Effect 3 weapons and armor guide


M-300 Claymore Shotgun: As soon as the mission begins, enter the capsule and grab this shotgun from the cot inside.

Ariake Technologies Shoulder Guard: As you move through the tunnels, look for this small waterfall located just beyond one of the gestation pod groups. Check the ground nearby for the shoulder guards.


Armax Arsenal Gauntlets: If you assume the control console is at the northern part of the area, then go to the northwest corner. You’ll find these on the ground there.


M-9 Tempest SMG: Just after leaping over a gap you’ll be in front of a downed escape pod. The SMG is on the ground next to two dead turians.

Phaeston Assault Rifle: Not long after your first fight with the harvester, you’ll come across a dead turian. He’s hard to miss, and the Phaeston lies next to him. 

Hahne-Kedar Chestplate: Soon after your second fight with the harvester, your team will lead you to a small drop-off. Drop down and continue forward, hopping over the short barrier. There, on the left, you’ll find this armor.


M-29 Incisor Sniper Rifle: After the intense opening fight, you’ll head up a narrow slope at the far end of the battlefield. This weapon is against the left wall of that sloping corridor.

Rosenkov Materials Gauntlets: Just after finding the Incisor, you’ll be involved in a firefight in a long, corridor-like section. After the area is clear, stick to the right and go to the far wall to find these on the ground.

    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.
