Unlockable - How to unlock the 'Paragon' and 'Renegade' achievements easily.

by kingviper37 Feb 11, 2009

On Noveria, when you are given the oppurtunity to accept the assignment from Lorik Qui'in to get the evidence to catch the Salarian (Anoleis, the administrator guy who has his own office) in his rend-based scandal, agree to it. He will open up the shut-down elevator, go down there and get the evidence. Upon exiting to go back to him you will run into Gianna (receptionist lady), so talk to her then go meet her in the hotel/bar. She will ask you to get him to agree into turning Anoleis in, agree and go talk to Lorik Qui'in. Talk to him, and do the following:

Step 1:

* (Top Right) Testify against Anoleis
* (Top Left) {Paragon} You'd be a hero
* OR
* (Bottom Left) {Renegade} Damn right I will

Step 2:

* Talk to him again
* (Left) Matriarch Benezia
* (Bottom Right) Another Question
* *Repeat step 1*

Repeat these two steps for whichever one you want until the achievement unlocks, then switch to the other for that achievement. Remember to do whichever way you DON'T want your character to be first so when you finish with the second achievement, you are high in either Paragon or Renegade, depending on your preference.

Unlockable - What you have to do to unlock the 'Ally' achievements.

by kingviper37 Feb 11, 2009

Do A LOT of side quests. Don't worry if you get one ally first and later the other. You can get two per playthrough only. It is possible to get these achievements even before going to Ilos if you complete every possible side quest and all main missions.

Basic plan of attack for ally achievements:

* Complete Eden Prime
* Go to Citadel, talk to Council
* Find Harkin (Chora's Den), Garrus (Med Clinic) and Wrex (C-Sec)
* Take care of Fist (do not pick up his OSD!)
* Rescue Tali in the Wards Access
* Talk to Council, become Spectre
* Head to Therum and rescue Liara

From here, you will have all the allies. Pick the two you want to use and use them for EVERYTHING. If you don't have an ally with decryption and need them to unlock a quest by hacking a computer, switch them in to receive the quest, then immediately go back and switch them out.

Now with your two allies:

* Complete any possible Citadel assignment
* Complete any random space assignments
* Complete Noveria (do all assignments BEFORE leaving the arrival site)
* Complete Feros (do all assignments BEFORE leaving the arrival site)
* Go back to the Citadel and complete any assignments you started on Noveria/Feros
* Complete Virmire (do not kill Wrex!)
* Back to the Citadel once more

You should have the achievements by now, but if you don't, head to Ilos and finish out the game. Many people got a few of the achievements (mainly Liara) at the very last mission.

Unlockable - The easy way to unlock 'AI Hacking Specialist ' achievement.

by kingviper37 Feb 11, 2009

First find a turret to use it on... Use it, hide, recharge, and repeat. People have recommended the fight with Fist as a great time to do this with the two turrets in his office. Make a save just before this point, hack them both and reload the save. The hacks will go toward the achievement even though you didn't save your game after doing them.

Unlockable - Get the HMW guns!

by Fluxion Dec 10, 2009

The HMW guns are the best guns in the game, they are the elite spectre weapons. To unlock them beat the game once on any difficulty, then play again with the character you beat the game on and you can buy these guns from the requisition officer in C-Sec, or the guy in the hold of the Normandy. They cost 30,000 credits each though, if I remember right.

Glitch - More Money

by Marine294 Jul 07, 2008

Try to beat the game at about level 40, by doing a mission, exp,oring the planet, then some side missions, and explore planets,once you are at about level 37+, do the final mission, then beat the game after you look at everything, you should be around level 40, if you start a new career, choose the same person when you are given the choice to, now you get tons of money, this way, I got more money than I could spend, the maximum I think is 99,999,999,999 credits
