Character Customization (multiplayer)

From Mass Effect: Andromeda Wiki

The Character Customization Menu

Character Customization is used in multiplayer gameplay to manage your character's loadout, skills, consumables, and visual customization.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The character customization menu allows the ability to tailor the weapons and equipment for any of one of thirty-six different character kits. Only the currently chosen character kit can be customized. To change the character being customized, use the Character Selection menu.

Under the character customization menu there are four sub-menus: Loadout, Consumables, Skills, and Appearance.

Loadout[edit | edit source]

Loadout

The Loadout menu functions in a manner similar to loadout in single-player gameplay. Weapons, weapon mods, and equipment can be selected as long as they are unlocked.

Unlike single-player gameplay where additional weapons can be carried into battle by unlocking them with skills, only two weapons and one equipment can be equipped per character kit.

Only Common weapons are available at the start of multiplayer gameplay before any packs have been purchased and/or claimed from the store. Weapon mods and equipment have to be unlocked through the store.

Weapons[edit | edit source]

Weapons

The same weapons that are used in the single-player portion of the game are available in the multiplayer portion as well.

Be aware that the stats for the multiplayer versions of weapons have been changed (some multiple times) with patches and updates. Consult the individual weapon pages and the Patches and Updates article for more details.

S Variant Weapons[edit | edit source]

"S" variant weapons were added to boost the stats of the five Common weapons. These upgraded weapons have paint schemes changed to a metallic (stainless steel) look.

The following additional text is added to each S variant weapon description:

Nexus scientists have worked to improve APEX weaponry, creating enhanced Special Edition weapons that are showcased in a titanium finish.

All S variant weapons are Rare and a separate weapon compared to the Common version. It is possible to equip both versions of a weapon at the same time in the Loadout screen.

The S variant of a weapon will not appear in packs until after the base version of a weapon reaches Rank 10.

Specialized Variant Weapons[edit | edit source]

With Patch 1.09, new variants of the Uncommon, Rare, and Ultra Rare weapons were added that have additional benefits.

These new versions have:

  • the benefit type in (parenthesis) added after the name of the weapon.
  • additional text added after the standard definition text.
  • descriptions and stats of the new benefits.
  • the weapon paint coloring scheme changes (based on each specific weapon).

Each Tier of a specialized variant weapon from I-X has the exact same weapon stats as the standard Tier X version. The only benefits from increasing tiers of a specialized variant weapon are increases to the specialized stats. The specialized stats for a specific tier are the same no matter the weapon. An M-3 Predator S (Bulwark) at Tier VII has the same bonuses as a Black Widow (Bulwark) at Tier VII.

The specialized variant of a weapon will not appear in packs until after the base version of a weapon reaches Rank 10.

All specialized variant weapons are separate weapons compared to the normal version. It is possible to equip multiple versions of a weapon at the same time in the Loadout screen.

Bulwark[edit | edit source]

Bulwark paint schemes change to yellow with grey hexagons. The following additional text is added to each Bulwark weapon description:

† Multiplayer-Only Mod

Be aware that the stats for the multiplayer versions of mods have been changed (some multiple times) with patches and updates. Consult the Patches and Updates article for more details.

The only way to acquire the enhanced weapon mods (which have increased benefits/penalties) is to purchase the appropriate weapon mod rarity level using Mission Funds in the item store. Only basic weapon mods will show up randomly in packs.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Equipment

Equipment are permanent items that can be used during multiplayer gameplay.

  • One equipment can be equipped per mission.
  • Equipment can be used repeatedly and does not disappear after the match.

See Equipment for a detailed list and breakdown.

Consumables[edit | edit source]

Consumables

The Consumables Menu allows up to two boosters to be equipped before a multiplayer match. The Consumables Menu also displays the amounts of supply items available for use during a match.

Boosters[edit | edit source]

Boosters

Boosters are consumable items applied before multiplayer gameplay.

  • Boosters are equipped in the Consumables Menu and up to two can be equipped per mission.
  • There are 6 Booster Classes that can be used in multiplayer. Ammo, Weapon, Offensive, Defensive, Power, and Progression.
  • Only one booster from a class can be equipped at a time.
  • Boosters are consumed when the mission ends but last for the entire duration of the mission.

No boosters are available at the start of multiplayer gameplay. Boosters can be found in packs that have been purchased and/or claimed from the store. Certain boosters can also be purchased from the item store.

See Boosters for a detailed list and breakdown.

Supplies[edit | edit source]

Consumables - Supplies Menu.png

Supplies are single use consumable items used during multiplayer gameplay. There are five supplies available but only four can be used during combat.

  • First Aid Pack - Instantly and fully restores health and shield strength with a mix of medicine and machinery.
  • Revive Pack - An emergency dose of medi-gel to revive yourself when you're down and out.
  • Ammo Pack - Instantly reloads all weapons and fills all reserves with thermal clips and power cells.
  • Cobra RPG - An explosive projectile launched from an omni-tool that deals massive damage.
  • Character Respec - Reset a character's skill selections.

Starting players have the capacity to take two of each combat supply available to use in each multiplayer match. This is shown on the Booster Screen as (2/2).

Supply capacity can be increased for combat supplies by purchasing packs in the store and getting Capacity Increase cards. The maximum level that each combat supply can be increased to is five (5/5).

Character Respec cards can't be used during combat and can only reset skills between matches. There is no counter to display the current inventory of Character Respec cards. There is no known limit on the amount that can be collected.

Supplies can be found in packs that have been purchased and/or claimed from the store. Supplies can also be purchased from the item store.

Skills[edit | edit source]

Skills

Multiplayer gameplay uses the class system found in previous Mass Effect games.

Skill sets are fixed, character-specific, and consist of 3 active and 2 passive skills using a mix of the standard 36 skills available from single-player gameplay, squadmate skills, and new multiplayer-only skills.

Most multiplayer versions of standard skills have small changes in the numbers. A few skills have slightly different rank orders or have ranks that function in a different fashion. Refer to each multiplayer skill page for the exact details.

Skill points can be spent in the same fashion as single-player gameplay. As character level increases, additional skill points are made available to spend on the character kit. To reset already spent skill points for a specific character kit, a Character Respec card needs to be used to reset skill points.

The multiplayer skill types break down into three main color coded categories: Combat (Red), Biotics (Violet), and Tech (Orange). Each category type has its own set of active (Active Generic Skill Icon.png) and passive (Passive Generic Skill Icon.png) skills.

Skill Points[edit | edit source]

As in single player, skill points are used to purchase skill ranks.

  • Each character at Level 1 and Rank I starts with five skill points. Three points are already spent—one point per active skill. The remaining two points are available to be spent.
  • Leveling up a character adds skill points.
  • Increasing character rank adds skill points.
  • Character cards award the same skill point amounts regardless of the rarity of the character kit.
  • There are 85 skill points available.
  • It takes 21 skill points to fully develop a skill. With 85 points, only four skills can be fully developed, with a single point assigned to a fifth. Distributing the points evenly allows the development of four skills through Rank 5, with a single skill fully developed, with four points unassigned.


Skill Points Total
Initial Skill Points 5 points 5
Level 2 - 20 3 points per level 57
Character Cards II & IV 4 points per card 8
Character Cards VI, VII, & X 5 points per card 15
Grand Total 85

Veteran Bonus Skill[edit | edit source]

Veteran Bonus Skill

With Patch 1.09, additional Ranks (XI-XX) for Character Cards were added to the store. An additional passive skill VETERAN BONUS was also added to all multiplayer character kits.

Each Veteran Bonus tier increases your power, combo, and melee damage.

Gain Veteran Bonus tiers by collecting Character Cards above Rank X. Gain one tier for each Character Rank above X.

This passive skill remains LOCKED until a Rank XI Character Card is received from the store. Veteran Rank cards of characters will only drop after all characters of that rarity have been unlocked to Rank X. (Update 1.10)

Once a Rank XI Character Card is received in the store, the passive skill becomes available for the specific character kit and the bonus text will be listed.

TIER 1 BONUS:
+4% Power Damage Bonus
+4% Combo Detonation Damage
+4% Melee Damage Bonus

Each Rank above X has its own Tier bonus.

Respec Power Points[edit | edit source]

Respec Power Points
Confirm Re-Spec Power Points

Once a Character Respec card has been obtained, a new choice called "Respec Power Points" will be added to the bottom of the Skills sub-menu. Selecting this choice allows skill points to be refunded and spent again. This does not reset the level of the character. Resetting a character level can only be done once the character reaches Level 20 in the Character Selection menu with the Reset Level choice.

Next to the choice "Repec Power Points" is a number in parenthesis (). This is the current number of Character Respec cards the player has.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Appearance

The Appearance Menu allows the changing of color and patterns to the currently selected character. Higher character ranks unlock more colors and patterns. Gain higher ranks of characters by purchasing packs in the Store.

Five of the following items can be changed for each character using an RGB dial. Pattern selection and skin tone use a slider.

  • Color Tint 1
  • Color Tint 2
  • Color Tint 3
  • Pattern Select
  • Pattern Color
  • Light Color
Skin Tone
  • Skin Tone - Certain characters have a final appearance choice that allows the changing of skin tone. Although it is the last appearance changing option, skin tone can be changed at Rank I.
Rename Character

The Appearance Menu also allows the name of the specific character kit to be changed. This name is only visible to the player and will not be shown to other individuals in the lobby or during multiplayer gameplay. There is a limit of 19 characters for the name.

The option to reset the character kit to default name and default appearance can be selected from the Appearance Menu.
