fondly remembering

very upset about
to the point of threatening Garrus with her shotgun to stop.

Infinite M-920 Cain:
——————–
After initially firing the M-920 Cain you can keep holding down on the fire
button while
hitting reload after every shot. The shots will keep firing during the
previous shots’
explosions (within about 2-3 seconds of each other). Remember: the blast
can harm you and
your squad mates!

Easter Egg: Probing Uranus:
—————————
Head to the Local Cluster and scan Uranus. The first two probes you launch
will result
in “unusual” statements from EDI.

Party member Loyalty skills:
—————————-
Successfully complete a party member’s Loyalty mission to unlock their
individuals skills
for Shepard. Note: Complete the Advanced Training research upgrade for your
ship to be
able to select the skills.

Armor Piercing Ammo: Archangel’s Loyalty mission
Biotic Barrier    : Jacob’s Loyalty
mission.
Dominate          : Kill Samara
during her Loyalty mission and have Morinth replace her.
Fortification     : Grunt’s Loyalty
mission.
Geth Shield Boost : Legion’s Loyalty mission.
Inferno Grenade   : Zaeed’s Loyalty
mission.
Neural Shock      : Mordin Solus’s
Loyalty mission.
Reave             : Samara’s Loyalty
mission.
Shield Drain      : Tali’s Loyalty
Mission.
Slam              : Miranda’s Loyalty
mission.
Warp Ammo         : Jack’s Loyalty
mission.

Romancing the Yeoman:
———————
If you chat it up with Yeoman Kelly Chambers often and choose to be kind to
her you can
instigate an “unusual” romantic encounter. You’ll eventually be
able to invite her to dinner.
Additionally, you cannot let Kelly die in the final mission (choose a loyal
escort for the
crew in the final scene). After you beat the game, talk to Kelly and you’ll
receive an email
from her. Go to your quarters and you’ll be able to invite her up using
your console. She’ll
appear and you’ll be able to watch the evening’s awkward events unwind.
She’s no Yeoman Rand,
but she’ll do.

Legion Does the Intergalactic Shuffle:
————————————–
Approach Legion in his quarters and highlight him but do not talk to him.
He’ll do “The
Robot,” the traditional dance of his ancestors.

Double Your Hacking Rewards:
—————————-
Occasionally, after completing a hacking minigame for credits etc. you can
press A repeatedly
as the window closes and cause the game to glitch out and let you hack a
second time — for
another chunk of credits! We’ve confirmed that this is rare, but it does
work — so get in
the habit of mashing.

Have Dominate ability and keep Samara alive:
——————————————–
Submitted by: Noor-A-Alam

Dominate is a very useful Biotic ability that allows you to control organic
enemies and turn
them into allies, similar to the Hack ability that controls synthetics. In
order to get this
ability as a Loyalty mission bonus to use for your character, you must help
Morinth kill
Samara during the latter’s loyalty mission. However, if you wish to keep
Samara on your team
but still have Morinth’s Dominate ability, use the following trick. Play
Samara’s loyalty
mission up to the point where Samara confronts Moritnth. Save the game
immediately before
the confrontation. When it is time to choose who you will eliminate, choose
the option that
lets Morinth get the upper-hand on Samara and kill her. Create a separate
saved game file.
Go to the ship and talk to Morinth. Load the previous saved game then have
Samara kill Morinth.
You now get to keep Samara as a squad mate and have Morinth’s Dominate
ability when you choose
a bonus loyalty power to add to your character in the prototype upgrade
screen.

Legion: Unusual dialog:
———————–
* Take Legion to the Citadel. Talk to Anderson and the customs officer.

* Take Legion to the migrate fleet on Tali’s Loyalty mission.
  Security will force you to remove
him unless you can persuade them otherwise.
* Take Legoin to recruit Tali. She will try to shoot him.

Unlimited Ammo, no reload and more live:
—————————————-
Submitted by: Adocrates
Email: adocrates@hotmail.com

Edit C:\Programm Files\Team JPN\Mass Effect
2\BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked\Coalesced.ini and replace:

AmmoPerShot=1 to =0 ;This make NO RELOAD
and every bInfiniteAmmo=true to =false ;This make INFINITE AMMO.
and Health=1500 to =9500 ;More health but with this ammo, can be hurt
you…?

* First, BACKUP the file! some changes produces game failure.

Max Out Skill Points:
———————
To do this you’ll need to have the Dominate skill, the Retrain Powers and
Advanced Training
upgrades and tons of Element Zero. You can get the Dominate Skill by
recruiting Morinth
(Samara’s daughter), which means you have to sacrifice Samara in her own
loyalty mission. A
list of planets with Element Zero can be found below. First, purchase
Advanced Training and
choose Dominate. This will land you a bonus skill point, which you can use
by instituting
the Retrain Powers upgrade. Repeat this process for additional skill
points; one at a time!

Prequel bonuses:
—————-
Have a saved game file from the original Mass Effect and use that profile
in Mass
Effect 2 to get the following bonuses.

100,000 credits         : Mass Effect
character with the “Rich” achievement.
2,000 experience points : Level 50 Mass Effect character.
30,000 credits          : Level 50
Mass Effect character.
5,000 of each resource  : Level 50 Mass
Effect character.
4,000 experience points : Level 60 Mass Effect character.
50,000 credits          : Level 60
Mass Effect character.
10,000 of each resource : Level 60 Mass Effect character.

Baldur’s Gate series reference:
——————————-
Space Hamster is available on Illium. Once you go into your cabin and
select him,
he will come out and do the same “Squeek” that Boo did, who was
Minsc’s “Intergalactic
Space Hamster” from Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate 2.

Infinite YMIR Mechs:
——————–
(Unconfirmed) When you reach the point in the Freedom’s Progress mission
where you
are told to place your teammates around the giant blast door, you can trick
the game
into spawning extra YMIR Mechs (Ed: But why would you want to … ?).
First, position
your team accordingly, and watch the cutscene. You’ll now be confronted by
a Giant YMIR
Mech. Instead of killing it, turn around, and head BACK through the blast
door.
This will glitch the game back before the cutscene. Place your team around
the blast
door again, and the cutscene will play. This will spawn an extra YMIR Mech.
Repeat
as many times as you wish, but more than three YMIR Mechs will most likely
kill you!

Geth Pulse Rifle:
—————–
Switch to the Hardcore difficulty setting before you land on the planet.
Complete Tali’
Zora’s recruitment mission to find the Geth Pulse Rifle in the room where
you find Tali.
You can then change the difficulty back to its original setting.

Respectable Quarian Names:
————————–
When asking Zaal’Koris about his funny name/ship name the “Qwib
Qwib” (on the Quarian
fleet vessel), the real joke hits when he mentions desiring a more
respectable ship
name like “Defrahnz” or “Iktomi.” These two names would
have yielded the following
Quarian names: Zaal’Koris vas Defrahnz (vas deferens) and Zaal’Koris vas
Iktomi
(vasectomy).

Recruiting Tali: Sunlight exposure:
———————————–
While recruiting Tali on Haestrom, direct sunlight will damage you and your
squad’s
shields and Biotic barriers. Because Grunt uses armor, he is unaffected by
the sunlight
and does not suffer weakened defenses while directly exposed.

Jack vs Miranda:
—————-
Submitted by: RockingAssassin
Email: rockingassassin@gmail.com

If you want a ending with the loyalties of Jack And Miranda both, then
don’t play the
Miranda’s loyalty mission at first. At first wait for Jack’s mission to be
available and
then play it first. After the mission when they are fighting, support the
Jack.
Miranda’s loyalty will be low. Then play her mission and her loyalty will
back.

Humorous dialogue:
——————
Wander around the ship in between missions to hear some funny quotes.

Stand next to Jeff “Joker” Moreau (the pilot) without interacting
with him. You will
hear him say things such as the following.

* “Why is it always claws and guns? Can’t we piss off a fuzzy planet?
Still dangerous,
  I know. But hey, bunnies.”

* “Two years and everything hits the crapper. That’ll teach you to die
on me.”
* “You know what I hate about deep space? Crap radio stations from two
centuries back.
  My gosh, we were idiots.”

Stand near the two engineers near the Mass Effect Core to hear the the
following.

* Engineer Daniels: “Did you know we’re sharing our deck with a
krogan?”
* Engineer Donnelly: “Well that’s just peachy.”

Legion’s Gamer Stats:
———————
At the end of ‘The Lair of the Shadow Broker’ downloadable content for Mass
Effect 2,
you’ll find a terminal with all your teammates’ dossiers on it. Including
information
only the shadow broker could get his hands on. You will find upon reading
Legion’s
dossier that our favorite Geth happens to be quite the gamer. You can read
a list of
games he downloaded and even his scores and rankings on the leaderboards.
There’s even
a bit where he is kicked for hacking some game, but he challenges the ban,
and is let
back onto the servers. I found this read to be worth a chuckle.

Have Dominate ability and keep Samara alive:
——————————————–
Dominate is a very useful Biotic ability that allows you to control organic
enemies
and turn them into allies, similar to the Hack ability that controls
synthetics. In
order to get this ability as a Loyalty mission bonus to use for your
character, you
must help Morinth kill Samara during the latter’s loyalty mission. However,
if you
wish to keep Samara on your team but still have Morinth’s Dominate ability,
use the
following trick. Play Samara’s loyalty mission up to the point where Samara
confronts
Moritnth. Save the game immediately before the confrontation. When it is
time to choose
who you will eliminate, choose the option that lets Morinth get the
upper-hand on Samara
and kill her. Create a separate saved game file. Go to the ship and talk to
Morinth.
Load the previous saved game then have Samara kill Morinth. You now get to
keep Samara
as a squad mate and have Morinth’s Dominate ability when you choose a bonus
loyalty
power to add to your character in the prototype upgrade screen.
