Just the Build List you've been looking for.

One of the most enjoyable things about Mass Effect Andromeda is how versatile their multiplayer is for each available class. From those who like to go running in guns blazing to those who stay back and get headshots from tactical vantage points, this article will give you the best shot at catching all the wins. We’ll be breaking down the best builds based on their primary function. Total. Annihilation! 

 

Soldier:

This is a classic, tried and true, and will never let you down type of build. It can easily get you through any situation you may find yourself in. Turian Soldiers, as a unit, were always the most military advanced race in the Milky Way. It just makes sense that the best build is a Turian build as well.

Biotic:

Biotics are a class of people who have been praised by most Milky Way races while feared for a good deal of time by others. However, to play as a Biotic is fluid and enjoyable for nearly any type of playthrough. A fully biotic build that can pack a punch in a tight spot is a good thing to have in your back pocket while in multiplayer.

Sentinel:

Sentinel classes are well-rounded and well-loved by players. This allows players to dabble in all three of the subclasses offered- Combat, Biotics, and Tech abilities. Why settle for one subclass when you can have them all, right? I use this build myself quite often when I play so I’m easily able to both get into the heat of combat and deal heavy damage at a distance.
