Mass effect strangeness


there is something i find scary about the mass effect game, on my very first play through, i had sold enough low grade gear to buy all the spectre weapons and then spectre heavy armor, now here is the scary part, i have done other playthroughs after the first one and havent found any spectre armor, and unluckily i cant get back to the first playthrough because i had overwritten that save file.


I have only played Mass Effect 2 and 3 as I found 1 a bit boring and I don’t have the time to play them all again. Thus I also don’t know anything about Spectre armor, maybe you managed to unlock it by doing certain missions and taking certain choices?


Maybe it was ghost-armor? :wink:


Let’s see…I know you can buy Specter-7 weapons from the Turian near the elevator heading up to the Normandy but only up to three sets of each weapon. Specter-10 is bought from the apartment that you win if you have the training arena DLC, again up to three sets of each weapon. That’s what I recall from my game’s playthrough.

Specter heavy armor? I don’t think there’s such thing as Specter heavy armor. There’s the Colossus armor series and the Predator (I think it’s called that?) armor series but there’s no Specter heavy armor in the game. Only Specter weapons.


Spectre armour in ME 1? Hang on…

Okay, you want the Predator S, M, or L depending on your class. That’s the best armour in the game, adds health and shields at a minor cost to biotics and tech resistance.

For Garrus and Tali, you want the Colossus type armour, a nice blend of all three stats. Uhhh, I forget for Wrex.

You want the Savant series of Biotic amps and omni tools. Damage and cool down without sacrificing damage.

For weapons, HMWA, best spectre gear fixed with X type adjustments. Having one heat sink on an assault rifle with the right skills turns it into a machine gun.

For grenades? I recommend incendiary, burns through health and is just plain awesome sometimes. Not that effective against geth but really good against organic.

Right, that should do it.

To be honest, it’s been ages since I’ve played ME. So I had to go and check.


I thought colossal armor was…


Spectre weapons are unlocked - and random once you do so. Been a long time since I played one it is very slow going for a long time.

You might be better off with possibly even the following: and


i already have spectre x weapons, i just want to get the spectre armor like i did on my first play through its the black and dark grey camo colored armor


There’s no Specter armor in the game. The top two armor is Collossus and Predator armor.

Check this link out for the list of armor found in Mass Effect. I think the closest armor that has the coloration that you’re referring to is the Titan line of armor.


i know its been said on the internet but im very sure i was able to buy armor that looked like this


it also depends on which Console you have the game for, the PS3 version don’t have that training DLC like 360 does


speaking of DLC how do i get them for xbox360


you can get them on the Marketplace directly from the console or you can log into X-Box’s marketplace website & buy them


if i have the whole trilogy in a box does it mean it comes with the dlcs added on


IIRC only limited DLC, you probably have to buy the good ones seperately.


this is taken directly from the Bioware Mass Effect Q&A
