Good morning, APEX. Kandros again.
A lot has happened since our last briefing. APEX welcomed a krogan biotic into its motley ranks—and with her help, we took down a behemoth. I thought exaltation was scary before I learned it could happen to a krogan.
Now we turn our attention to the Remnant: the Heleus Cluster’s automated security system. These bots aren’t always hostile, but when they are, watch out. Observer lasers leave a mark.
Few on the Nexus know this better than our newest APEX operative: a salarian, trained by the STG, who’s been taking apart Remnant since some of you were still in cryo. The guy really seems to know his stuff. He actually reprogrammed an Observer to fight alongside us. He calls it GLK—or “Glick” out loud.
Don’t ask me what the name means.
We’re still working hard to answer some key questions about the Remnant. We know the kett are asking a lot of these same questions. They might even have some answers we haven’t found yet. It doesn’t help that exiles are harvesting parts to sell and build tech.
We need you to infiltrate Remnant sites with our new friends. See what you can find. Remnant hate so much as a glare in their direction, so walking right into their house isn’t going to be easy.
Arm yourself, shoot what you have to, but try to take some notes. Nexus brass would rather not fight everything in Andromeda if they can help it.
The Salarian Architect's former colleagues at the lab he worked at are quietly relieved that he ended up in the Initiative. He's exceptionally smart, but quite quirky; he seems to get along better with his VI drone than with living creatures.
The Inferno began as a failed design for a Remnant particle beam shotgun, then was reconfigured into a semi-automatic sniper weapon. It fires short, high-energy particle bursts and requires no reloading. This allows a sniper to continue firing until the weapon overheats.
An advanced biotic amp that increases the strength of biotic powers.
Increases maximum shield strength and melee damage through high-capacity kinetic barrier generators.
The Salarian have a photographic memory and many believe this is integral to the race’s infamous predilection toward intelligence gathering and spycraft – though some might call it manipulation or deceit. The new salarian operative, trained by the STG, has extensive knowledge of Remnant. He knows his stuff, he actually reprogrammed an Observer to fight alongside us. He calls it GLK—or “Glick” out loud.
Go deeper in exploring the Firebase Paradox map.
A rogue kett ship has veered too close for comfort to the Nexus. Intel indicates some of the missing krogan were taken aboard. We need to infiltrate this ship, neutralize the threat, and follow up on the krogan experimentation.
A number of krogan scout patrols have gone missing on a kett-held planet. Their last known position was near Firebase Paradox, a kett base built around Remnant artifacts they've been analyzing and exporting off-planet. We need to fan out and investigate.
