Your abilities and weapons will carry you through most of the story in Mass Effect 1, but if you really want to get into stats and make sure your party is outfitted with the best possible gear, you’ll need to look at your armor as well. And if you’re looking to get the very best protective armor in the game, we’re here to help you out. Here’s how to get the Colossus Armor in Mass Effect 1.
Getting Colossus Armor in Mass Effect 1
The Colossus Armor offers the best protection in the game, out of all armor sets available. However, getting it is a bit of a pain as there’s some RNG involved as well. First off, you need to purchase the Kassa Fabrication armory license from the C-Sec Requisitions Officer at the Citadel.
Alternatively, you can also purchase it from Petozi, who’s found at Peak 15 on Noveria. It doesn’t make any difference.
After that, you’ll be able to start purchasing Kassa equipment from the Requisitions Officer on the Normandy itself. His stock will rotate between missions, so it’ll definitely take a while for you to get it. If you really want to try to get the Colossus Armor as soon as possible, your best bet will be to save right before talking to the Officer, check his stock, then reload the save repeatedly until he gets the stock you want.
There are also Light, Medium, and Heavy variants of the armor for different races, so if you’re trying to get it for a specific character, that might take a while as well. While you certainly don’t need the armor to beat the campaign, the shields, biotic/tech, and damage protection values are very high, so if you get the chance to buy one of those variants, definitely go for it.
That’s all you need to know about how to get the Colossus Armor in Mass Effect 1. Be sure to check our guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
