Vintage Heat Sink is an augmentation in Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Compatibilities Edit

  • Guns - This augmentation can be applied to gun-type weapons.

Description Edit

Ammo refills automatically after a delay, -60% Clip Size

Mechanics Edit

The Vintage Heat Sink automatically cools down the weapon rather than using disposable thermal clips.

  • The benefit of not using thermal clips is not having to reload the weapon.
  • An excellent additional benefit of this augmentation is that it eliminates the reload animation. This greatly increases the rate of fire of low ammo capacity weapons, such as single-shot shotguns or sniper rifles. This benefit is most noticeable with the single-shot weapons but applies to any weapons in actuality.
  • All weapons using the Vintage Heat Sink have a flat recharge time that is not effected by penalties or bonuses to weapon reload speed.

Note: Despite the Gun Behavior augmentation text stating that "You may apply one such augment to a gun during the development process", both of the Gun Behavior augmentations - the Vintage Heat Sink and the Plasma Charge System - can be applied to the same item.
