Commander Shepard's overarching mission during the events of Mass Effect 2 is to defeat the race known as the Collectors responsible for the disappearance of entire human colonies. This culminates in a desperate and daring counterattack into the heart of their territory often referred to within the story as the "suicide mission."

  • Omega 4 Relay - The Collectors are rumored to operate from somewhere beyond this uncharted mass relay. The Suicide Mission takes its name partly from the fact that no ship to enter the relay previously has ever returned. Entering the relay is considered the start of the Suicide Mission.
  • Collector Base - Installation thought to be located beyond the Omega 4 Relay from where the Collectors launch their attacks. Primary target of the Suicide Mission.
