Mass Effect: Andromeda guide: Finding side missions (and reading email)

Apparently, the Pathfinder’s email address is public knowledge

Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

There are (what feels like) endless side missions, tasks and errands in Mass Effect: Andromeda. People will stop you on the street and ask for help. Every new area you find will be populated by people needing (or missing) something. And talking to people for long enough will usually result in some task or another for you to complete for them.

For the most part, they’re all simple tasks that just take a little time and legwork, and they’re worth the effort for the XP or AVP they earn you. But there are even more side missions piling up that you may not have even noticed yet.

Inside the Pathfinder’s quarters on the Tempest, off to the right, there’s an email terminal. You’re going to get a lot of email. Buried among the catty emails from the crew and, apparently, pictures of guns from Drack, you’re going to get emails that prompt side missions. These have a hexagon icon to the left of the title and require you to acknowledge them. When you do, the mission gets added to your queue.

Because you always need more side missions.
