The Best Cryo Pods to Open First in Mass Effect: Andromeda
As you progress in Mass Effect: Andromeda, you’ll earn a resource known as Andromeda Viability Points (AVP) which are used to upgrade the Nexus by waking up Cryo Pods and unlocking special perks for Ryder. They will make your life much easier, but it can be quite difficult to choose from them, especially since you don’t earn these points as fast as other currencies or resources in the game. With that in mind, we’ve listed the first ones you should go for, as they’ll make your game easier early on.
If you’re worried about what these decisions mean for your story, don’t. While the colonies you set up may have influence over how certain decisions play out, it’s best to just focus on the perks that will suit you best. It’s also worth noting that some Cryo Pods can’t be opened until certain viability conditions are met. So you’ll definitely want to put in work on certain planets in order to raise that as high as possible.
To make this easier, we’re going to cover the best in each: Science, Military, and Commerce, since depending on your play style you may be more inclined to a specific field.
