Mass Effect 3: Best Armor

When ancient aliens come to harvest your entire species, a good set of armor can’t hurt. Here on Game Front’s Best Armor page we looked high and low for what people consider to be the most useful sets of armor in the game. As it turns out, every set is useful in it’s own way. Mass Effect 3 is balanced to allow for different play-styles, where no one choice in armor will negatively affect you… too much. Put on your Shepard-face and scroll down to browse these suits of readily available armor — where to find them, how much they cost, and what benefits you’ll get from slapping them on.

The Best Armor (And How To Get It)

  • Note: The best suits of armor are also the most expensive. Each of these unique armor suits costs 50,000 credits. To find them, check every terminal in the Citadel Presidium Commons. Open your map and interact with each storefront, marking on your map by a blue neon square with falling coins in the center.
  • Addendum: There is no objectively BEST armor in ME3 (Or is there?), all sets of armor are balanced to provide certain benefits! Pick the armor that suits your play-style best!
