In Mass Effect 2, there are plenty of decisions that you’ll be tasked with making that have large ramifications on the outcome of the series, especially when it pertains to the suicide mission that takes place at the end of the game. One choice you’ll have to make revolves around the Collector Base. Here is everything you need to know about if you should keep or destroy the Collector Base in Mass Effect 2.
The Collector Base is the location where Shepard and company have to travel to complete the game’s final mission. Once you make your way through it, you’ll eventually come upon a final boss fight.
Once you complete the boss fight and get Shepard out alive, they’ll be given a choice regarding the fate of the Collector Base: keep or destroy. So what should you do?
Keep or Destroy Collector Base in Mass Effect 2
Despite the fact that that this is painted as a major decision at the end of Mass Effect 2, you’ll end up with the same outcome either way in Mass Effect 3. Regardless of choosing to keep or destroy the Collector Base, you’ll discover that Cerberus got what it needed from it to create the Chronos Station.
To be exact, they recovered the Human-Reaper and are using it to augment the station’s functionality. If you keep the base, they say its brain is what helps the station work, and if you destroy the base they say its heart is what helps run it. Either way, you’ll end up capturing the Chronos Station and taking these remains as War Assets for the Crucible as part of a mission in Mass Effect 3.
That is everything you need to know about if you should keep or destroy the Collector Base in Mass Effect 2. If you’re looking for more tips, tricks, and FAQs for Mass Effect Legendary Edition, head over to our wiki. There are also a few related articles below that you can have a look at.
