Mass Effect 3 weapons and armor guide


Disciple Shotgun: You’ll eventually meet one of the Ardat-Yakshi and have a short conversation. In the next room, take out the cannibals, then look for a smaller office to the right. Check the ground inside for this weapon.

Serrice Council Shoulder Guards: To the right of the Disciple, on a desk.


Arc Pistol: When Tali joins you aboard the dreadnought, she’ll essentially give this weapon to you during the cutscene. Just make sure to grab it from the console. Don’t miss out on this one!

Archon Visor: As you make your way through the dreadnought, you’ll find yourself in this corridor. Check the right-hand side to find this visor near one of the consoles.

Geth Pulse Rifle: In the room after the one in which you found the Archon Visor. Again, look to your right to find this weapon on a crate.


Rosenkov Materials Chestplate: As soon as you have control of your character, turn left. Several meters in front of you, on a crate, lies this chestplate.


Javelin Sniper Rifle: This weapon lies on the ground just beyond where you found the first dead quarian. Be careful: there is a mine right next to it.

Armax Arsenal Chestplate: If, when you have the choice between two different AA control panels to go after, you choose the right panel, this upgrade is only a few feet from it. Don’t worry if you choose the left panel first; you will have to deactivate both.


Kassa Fabrications Gauntlets: On your way to the upper entrance, you’ll see this on the ground near one of the ladders. It’s hard to miss.

Geth Plasma Shotgun: You can find this weapon on your way to the shield override, just before going back inside the structure.

    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.
