I'm new here from the fallout wiki but what are the best schematics for weapons and armor in mass effect andromeda
The answer to your question varies greatly on your preferred playstyle, Profile and/or visual taste.
If you like biotics, then the Milky Way N7 armor is yours.
Like Tech explosions? Go for the Angara armor.
More into Guns? Mix Kett and the Maverick (unlocked for free every X1 level) as you like.
Looking for better survivability? Remnant Armor.
The Heleus Champion Helmet is the most versatile, as it increases all powers and weapon damage.
Looking at Weapon damage..... what do you like most?
The Ghost X5 (Milky Way) ist the most versatile Weapon as of now, with the only drawback of loosing augmentations on destroying it.
Wanna melt faces up close?
Dhan Shotgun (Heleus), Piranha (Milky Way) or Talon with Charged Plasma Augmentation (Pistol Milky Way, Augmentation Heleus).
Wanna melt faces far away?
Isharay highest single bullet damage but very small clip
Black Widow 25% less damage then Isharay but more shots on clip, therefore more forgiving, as you won't oneshot much in insanity unless you are using Cloak, Infiltrator, Soldier or Explorer Profile.
N7 Valiant Sniper is like a more powerful version of the Sandstorm Assault Rifle.
Melee....... Krogan Hammer and Asari Sword both have the highest melee dmg, but the sword has a higher range and 1 more augmentation slot.
Small hint: Fill up your Melee weapon with your preferred augmenations, as no augmentation will directly change your melee dmg.
Like guns... put in up to 5 Kinetic Coils for a total of 15% more damage no matter the level or profile.
Power users should attach 5 respective power augmentations for a bonus of 25%.
Choice is yours.
Again, those are the superior weapons
To give an idea, my personal favourite nuke-Rambo build is Overload + Flamethrower + Lance. Build is Tech and Weapon focussed, Lance is for combo/barrier proc as well as some extra hit if needed. Can swap out for Singularity if you want crowd control but Lance is more fun. This is an offense-heavy playstyle build.
Angara Helmet + Angara Arms + Kett Legs (or N7/C8 if you dont need small weapon dmg and want some extra protection with biotic buff) + Remnant Chest w/ Fusion Mod of Adenaline. And then run Explorer profile.
Granted was only testing on Normal for most part, run with the X5 Ghost AR augmented for Seeking Plasma, or even Piranha shotty same way, Black Widow for backup, and shit will just melt.
I also made the Remnant Inferno sniper with Charged Plasma + Seeking Plasma + Kinetic Coils and it hits hard.
As you crank the difficulty up, really only need to worry about extra protection by juggling armour pieces slightly if/where required.
Also consider certain gear-centric augments. I ran the Shock augment on legs to cause electricity damage on a jump-melee slam, and the +35% Tech Dmg when hovering augment on my arms, for long range Overload or Flamethrower over obstacles (make sure Flamethrower has the extended range upgrade over the other choice in that line). For chest I think i ran the augment that causes electricity/stun dmg when being melee attacked.
Another tip is, early game dont go wasting your Milky Way research on every weapon type. I went the whole game with just the vendor (2 mod slot) Black Widow and was fine. And dismantle most things rather than sell. You will have plenty of credits soon enough, and gear drops regularly in the world, mats for crafting are much more important.
Granted only crafted items can have augments, better to purchase/find some weapons first and make sure you like. The X5 Ghost must be researched though, i would def aim for that first. But as Marolf said, for some stupid reason it doesnt dismantle, only has 'destroy' so you will lose any augments.
Other really decent options, imo, are Sidewinder pistol, Remnant Equalizer smg, Vanquisher (Black Widow still better), Remnant Sweeper Assault Rifle, Dhan Shotgun (Heleus), Isharay Sniper (1 shot beast) and some people like the Naladen, which is a Heleus sniper rifle that shoots explosive rounds.
What do you think?
