Defend your Firebases in Mass Effect: Andromeda With These Author-Tested Multiplayer Tips!

by Prima Games Staff

Ready to defend the Firebases from the 7 waves of enemies coming your way in Mass Effect: Andromeda? These tips aim to help you prepare your team and lead them to victory!

Play the Objectives

Each Multiplayer game is broken down into seven waves that follow the same format. Waves 1, 2, 4, and 5 are survival waves. Waves 3 and 6 are each one of four possible objective waves, and the seventh and last wave is the extraction wave.

Choose the Right Difficulty

You gain XP faster by completing entire missions at the highest difficulty you can handle, so if you aren’t ready for increased difficulty, back off and play a few more rounds at a lower difficulty to level up your character. Boosters help you get through harder difficulty levels earlier, allowing you to buff your weapon and power damage as well as your shield strength.

Enemy Shields

Shields are vulnerable to electrical damage and prevent priming by any type of damage. Shields can regenerate to their full capacity over time, so if you break an enemy’s shields, don’t let them run away!

Choosing the Correct Shoulder

When rounding corners and fighting in general, always hover the crosshair over the shoulder opposite the wall or cover points. This method allows you to easily see around corners before revealing yourself, and gives you the best look at the majority of the space in front of you. Having your camera on the correct shoulder in each situation could mean the difference between life and death.

Restock Often

Restock as often as you can. Ammo crates regenerate over time. It’s always better to have a surplus of ammo than to worry about making it to an ammo crate when you’re out of ammo!

If you and your fireteam follow all these tips, you will find yourself well on your way to victory! For more content, including breakdowns of skills, powers, characters and enemies purchase the Official Mass Effect: Andromeda Strategy Guide from Prima Games!
