Disambiguous This article is about the outlaw from Mass Effect: Andromeda. For the shotgun from Mass Effect 3, see AT-12 Raider.

The Raider is an Outlaw unit. These footsoldiers form the rank and file of non-kett and non-Remnant armies against Pathfinder Ryder and APEX teams.

Human Raiders are invariably male while the Roekaar can be from either gender.

Scanner Information Edit

Outlaw Raider

Classification: Enemy
Origin: Milky Way

A basic assailant, outfitted with mid- to long-range weaponry.

Description Edit

Codex MEA - Outlaws Raider
The outlaw bands of the Heleus Cluster are diverse. Some were individuals who joined the Andromeda Initiative as an escape from the Milky Way; some were exiled after the Nexus uprising; others chose to seek their fortune elsewhere. Most of these individuals survive by raiding outposts or wandering exploration teams.

While not particularly organized or well-equipped, these raiders present a risk to undefended colonists. Most prefer to extort supplies and equipment rather than risk themselves, but when provoked or desperate, they will resort to deadly force.

Capabilities Edit


Human Raiders are typically seen wielding M-8 Avenger assault rifles while their Roekaar variants wield Sandstorms. They can also throw frag grenades relatively accurately to flush players out of cover.


Raiders are unprotected by shields, armor, or barriers.

Tactics Edit

  • Since they're unshielded and unarmored, they are easy victims for any tech and/or biotic attacks and will easily be dispatched in triggered combo detonations.
