Mass Effect: Andromeda guide: AVP Cryo Deployment Perks

AVP Cryo Deployment Perks

Now that Eos has an outpost and Prodromo is a thriving Initiative community, let’s talk about some of that stuff we told you to ignore during Mass Effect Andromeda's "A Better Beginning" mission.

AVP Cryo Deployment Perks

AVPs are the Andromeda Initiative’s gamification of the order in which settlers get thawed out. And it’s up to you to make that call. As you earn the points by doing things that make the Heleus cluster more livable, you’ll hit Nexus thresholds that allow you to wake the next block of colonists you choose.

Each block has associated rewards — things like additional research points, additional resources or inventory expansions.

Andromeda Viability Points are shown in the upper right corner of your menu screen. You’ll earn these points from completing tasks on planets — especially from activating terraformers and establishing outposts. You’ll also earn a few here and there from Heleus assignments and additional tasks.

You’ll learn all about these from Director Addison and her assistant Vladimir Brecka after you complete Mass Effect: Andromeda's "A Better Beginning" priority ops mission on Eos.
