[Top 5] Mass Effect Andromeda Best Armor (And How To Get Them)

Mass Effect Andromeda 2017, Best Armor
Battle-Tested N7 Armor


The most reliable, bullet-proof and fashionable pieces of armor in Andromeda.

Mass Effect Andromeda, released in 2017, was to be a new thread to a massive tale already woven in the Mass Effect franchise. Many things stayed similar on its release- races, weapons, and even terribly controlled vehicles. Other things got an upgrade- like hilarious banter and the Nomad (Don’t come for me- I love this vehicle so much better than the Mako!). We’ve already tackled weapons in a previous article. Now, let’s get into the gritty (and heavy) stuff- armor.

 

N7 ARMOR:

This armor had to make its way onto the list for nostalgia’s sake alone. It does, however, offer more perks than some of the other armor that Commander Shepard may have gotten back in the Milky Way. The newly imported N7 armor offers a buff to Biotic Power Damage, Biotic Recharge Speed, and increases your max shields. This is a huge improvement to stats if you’ve pumped a lot of skill points in Biotics early on.
