If you’ve made it this far into the trilogy, you should know that Mass Effect games contain long lists of missions, both optional and mandatory. Though, you probably just want to know which ones really need to be completed to get to the end of the game. That’s what we’re here for. Here’s a list of all main missions in Mass Effect 3.
Spoiler Warning: Please keep in mind that the names of some of the main missions can hint at some of the story beats in Mass Effect 3.
All Main Missions in Mass Effect 3
Mass Effect 3 is split into three acts, just like Mass Effect 2. And in true Mass Effect fashion, many of the missions in each act can be completed in whichever order that players see fit. However, this list is a bit more straightforward than the ones for the previous games.
There’s a sense of urgency in the plot this time around, with players attempting to assemble an army of different races. Almost every main mission will be labeled with “Priority” followed by the location that the mission takes place in.
- Prologue: Earth
- Priority Mars
- Priority The Citadel I
- Priority: Palaven
- Priority: Sur’Kesh
- Attican Traverse: Krogan Team OR Attican Traverse: The Rachni
- Priority: Tuchanka
- Priority: The Citadel II
- Priority: Perseus Veil
- Priority: Geth Dreadnought
- Rannoch: Admiral Koris
- Rannoch: Geth Fighter Squadrons
- Priority: Rannoch
- Priority: The Citadel III
- Priority: Thessia
- Priority: Horizon
- Priority: Cerberus Headquarters
- Priority: Earth
That’s the full list of every single main mission in Mass Effect 3. The list doesn’t look too long but, rest assured, this one will keep you occupied for hours.
