Mass Effect 3 weapons and armor guide


Capacitor Helmet: This is easy to miss. Look for the numbers and the dumpster in the image above. The helmet is on the ground to the right of the dumpster. 


Death Mask: Once you’re on the ground for the second time during this mission, look to your right. There’s a krogan working on a truck wheel; the mask is on the ground to his left.

Graal Spike Thrower Shotgun: From where you found the Death Mask, turn around and find this shotgun next to a krogan who’s leaning against the railing.

M-5 Phalanx: Once your objective becomes reaching the hammers and your marker starts pointing you to the shroud, you’ll have to clear an open area of enemies then climb up a set of stairs that takes a 90 degree turn to the left. This gun is on the ground at the top of the stairs. It’s hard to miss. 


Recon Hood: On your way to the executor’s office, check the left side of this room under the screen for the recon hood.

M-76 Revenant Assault Rifle: To the left of the screen under which you found the recon hood is a door leading to the bathroom. Inside the bathroom, next to the sink, is this weapon.

M-358 Talon Heavy Pistol: In the room to the right of the malfunctioning door, there’s a console you can use that’s labeled ‘door control.’ Activate it, then go back to the locked office on the other side of the room. Inside that office is the Talon.

M-25 Hornet SMG: On the ground in front of the malfunctioning door.

Securitel Helmet: In the last room on the left, just left of the M-25 Hornet SMG.


Kassa Fabrication Greaves: After the initial fight, you’ll be inside the facility. Enter the infirmary and immediately turn right to find these greaves on a crate.

M-6 Carnifex Heavy Pistol: Soon after meeting up with Jacob and the scientists, you’ll have to climb a ladder on your way to the roof. At the top of the ladder, look for this heavy pistol along the left wall.

    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.
