Mass Effect 3 weapons and armor guide


Umbra Visor: As soon as you step of the shuttle, move forward to the ammo boxes at the center of the courtyard. The visor is on the ground next to the ammo.

M-98 Widow Sniper Rifle: At the feet of the Asari sniper team.


Ariake Technologies Greaves: You can find these at ground level once the mission begins. Clear the area of enemies, then look for this concrete column, which serves as support for one of the massive dishes. The greaves are on the ground behind it.


Rosenkov Materials Shoulder Guards: After draining the water, you will enter the secret facility. Just before passing through the second door, look for these shoulder guards to the left. If you don’t have this by the time you reach the ladder, turn back. 

M-12 Locust SMG: On one of the desks in Lab 01. You’ll enter this area just after the cutscene in which Shepard has to fix a console.

M-99 Saber Assault Rifle: In the room where you fight three brutes and a banshee, investigate this holographic control panel. Press B/circle to manually override the pods. Now go back to the pod inside which this weapon rests. You can now retract the glass and grab the rifle.


M-37 Falcon Assault Rifle: After you launch the fighter into the hangar doors, look on the ground near the site of destruction for this weapon.

Serrice Council Greaves: Immediately after watching the first set of the Illusive Man’s video logs, turn around.

Delumcore Overlay: Soon after you watch the second set of the Illusive Man’s video logs, you’ll see this blue-tinted hole to your left. Instead of jumping down to proceed, head past it and into the room on the right. Inside, behind some crates, you’ll find this overlay.

    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.
