3. The Mako tends to take some damage upon landing from increased height. You will have to re-enable this code whenever you return to or from the Normandy, or anytime you land on a new planet.
Cheat mode (alternate)

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "DefaultGame.ini" file in the "C:\Games\Mass Effect\BioGame\Config" directory in Windows XP.

Armor Types
Use one of the following entries with the giveitem self code.

light_armor
medium_armor
heavy_armor
qasuperarmor

Note: The qasuperarmor code can be used as in the following example, giveitem self 10 qasuperarmor manf_jorman_armor_hazard. This spawns a level X suit of Jormangund Technologies light armor, with the following stats: 99 physical protection, 20,000 shields, and 99 Tech/Biotic protection. There appears to be no way to specify medium or heavy armor types. The stats and appearance will vary greatly depending on which manufacturer string is used.

Armor manufacturer codes
Use one of the following entries with the giveitem self code. For example, enter giveitem self 10 light_armor spectre03_armor as a code to spawn a HMLX Spectre Master light armor prototype.

Manf_Sitta_Armor_Phoenix
Manf_Spectre01_Armor
Manf_Spectre02_Armor
Manf_Spectre03_Armor

Armor upgrade mods
Use one of the following entries with the giveitem self code. Note: The game appears to have only one type of armor upgrade mod. For example, enter giveitem self 10 x_armor_motojoints as a code to spawn a level X motor joints armor upgrade mod (+20% to strength).

X_Armor_AblCoating
X_Armor_CombatExo
X_Armor_CushGel
X_Armor_EnerWeave
X_Armor_EnvSeals
X_Armor_Exoskel
X_Armor_FieldRegen
X_Armor_FirstAid
X_Armor_HardWeave
X_Armor_HazardSeals
X_Armor_KineticBuff
X_Armor_KineticExo
X_Armor_MedicalExo

X_Armor_PressSeals
X_Armor_RegenPlating
X_Armor_ShieldBatt
X_Armor_ShieldMod
X_Armor_ShieldVI
X_Armor_ShockAbs
X_Armor_StimPack

Weapon types
Use one of the following entries with the giveitem self code:

assault_rifle
sniper_rifle
shotgun
pistol
qa_supergun

* Note: An example of the qa_supergun code is giveitem self 10 qa_supergun manf_geth_weap this results in a Geth-style pulse rifle with the following stats: 35,000 damage, 35.9 shots before overheating, and 81 accuracy. The manufacturer portion of the code affects the description and stats of the rifle spawned. The appearance does not t seem to vary; all are rendered as a Geth Pulse Rifle. However, damage and other stats can vary significantly. For example, the damage can vary between 30,000 and 40,000, depending on which manufacturer string is used.

* The Geth Pulse Rifle, which actually appears to be some type of pulse energy weapon vs. a projectile weapon, is spawned differently than other weapons. Enabling the giveitem self 10 assault_rifle manf_geth weap code works, but does not summon an actual Geth Pulse Rifle, but rather a "generic" assault rifle with the description of a Geth Rifle. The "correct" code is giveitem self 10 gethgun_pulse_player manf_geth_weap which summons the actual "player-legal" Geth Pulse Rifle that your character occasionally picks up late in the game. Note that these rifles do not appear to have mod/upgrade slots. However, if the following code is used, the game will spawn a working pulse rifle with two upgrade slots, with caveats: giveitem self 10 gethgun_pulse manf_geth_weap. The problem with the aforementioned code is that the weapon description will identify it as pistol, even though it is rendered as an assault rifle when you equip it. Furthermore the targeting reticule does not appear to function properly with this particular version of the weapon. Accordingly, it is probably best just to use the gethgun_pulse_player summoning format.

Weapon manufacturer codes
Use one of the following entries with the giveitem self code.

Manf_Ariake_Weap
Manf_Armax_Weap
Manf_Batarian_Weap

Manf_Kassa_Weap
Manf_Rosen_Weap
Manf_Spectre01_Weap
Manf_Spectre02_Weap
Manf_Spectre03_Weap

Use one of the following entries with the giveitem self code. Note: There appears to be only one type of weapon mod. For example, enter giveitem self 10 x_wgear_frictionlessmat as a code to spawn a level X Frictionless Materials weapon mod (+7% damage, -28% heat accumulation).

Hades Gamma Cluster Hidden Missions
To play the hidden mission in the Plutus system of the Hades Gamma Cluster, get 75% Renegade. To play the hidden mission in the Cacus system, get 75% Paragon.

Ensure Experience Points and Gamerpoints
After a major plot has been played, make sure to talk to your crew. This will give you experience points for clues and boost your crew's morale.

Shopping
When looking for certain items or armor, save before talking to merchant for first time. The merchandise is random. If you do not get anything you want, reload the game and talk to the merchant again. This trick can be used about three times whenever enough game time has elapsed for merchants to respawn new items.

Classes
Soldiers are combat specialists ideal for the front lines of a firefight. Soldiers begin the game trained with skills in both pistols and assault rifles, they have improved health and the ability to wear medium combat armor. As you progress through the game you can unlock assault training, skills with shotguns and sniper rifles, become able to perform first aid on yourself and party members, and wear heavy combat armor.

Engineers are tech specialists. Using the holographic OmniTool they can decrypt security systems, repair and/or modify technical equipment, disrupt enemy weapons or shields and heal their party. Even though they begin the game with only pistols and the OmniTool, engineers can unlock the ability to wear light armor and to reverse engineer enemy technology. They can also learn to put up protective shields and to heal the party.

Adepts are biotic specialists. Starting out equipped with pistols and light armor, the true strength of the adept is through the upgradeable implants that give them their biotic powers. These powers can be used to lift or throw objects, shield the party and disable or destroy enemies.

Infiltrators combine combat and tech abilities, and specialize in killing or disabling enemies at long range. Infiltrators are trained to use OmniTools, but the focus is on decryption and offensive abilities rather than healing. They can train with pistols or sniper rifles, and can learn to wear medium armor.

Vanguards are biotic warriors. They combine offensive biotic abilities and weapons training to quickly take down opponents, and are especially deadly at short range. They can train with pistols and shotguns, and can learn to wear medium armor.

Sentinels combine biotic and tech abilities. Typically they use biotic abilities and advanced healing skills to defend allies, though they can also disrupt opponents with biotic or Tech attacks. They are more efficient at tech and biotics than other classes, but at the expense of combat. Sentinels can only use light armor, and receive no advanced weapon training.

Recommended Career
Play as a War Hero Soldier first. By doing this, during your second play through you will have all of the money, weapons, and armor to use for the other careers.

Character Building
If you want to take the time, you can max out your Paragon and your Renegade stats without using any points. Once you get Spectre status, you can get up to four free points in each ability with each playthrough. Just play through the game three times and use the points you save elsewhere. The "Unlimited Paragon or Renegade" glitch helps.

Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic References
The rift station where you confront the Rachni is the same structure as the Selkath underwater base in Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic.

The Thorian race refers to the Ithorians from Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic.

Easy "First Aid Specialist" Achievement
Find a planet that has a Hazard level 1. Stand outside the Mako and keep pressing [Y]. Make a note of how many times you pressed [Heal]. If you do not pay attention and run out of Medi-Gel, you could die from the Hazard level.

Easy Skill Achievements
The quickest way to gaining the skill achievements (Lift, Warp, Sabotage, etc.) is to stand outside the Mako and use it for a target. Do each skill with your current character 75 times and you will get the achievements for each one. However, two things must be noted. First, Neuroshock does damage to the Mako. When you see it begin smoking you must repair it. Second, AI Hacking does not apply at all here. You will need to actually hack 75 AIs or hack a few repeatedly before you must destroy them. The best way to get this one is to play the mission where you must go to the Earth's moon, or "Luna", and stop the AIs in the training facility. Save the game before you go into one of the bunkers and keep hacking them until you are finished, or reload and play again.
