Mass Effect Andromeda Gameplay: How Weapon Naming & Crafting Work

Mass Effect Andromeda now has a unique attraction for players. Players can now craft their own weapons in the game. They can also name their own weapons.

This is definitely a first for the Mass Effect Andromeda series. The lead designer of the game is credited with confirming this. Ian S. Frazier has recently confirmed that this feature is applicable the melee weaponry suite in the game as well.

This is certainly a big fillip for Mass Effect Andromeda fans as per Eurogamer. You can now make use of real melee weapons. You can do away with the earlier omni-tool blade as well.

This blade comes in handy for stabbing enemies as in Mass Effect 3. Hammers and swords are also confirmed by the developers now. Melee weapons possess their own particular slots in the load-out.

This is also confirmed as per Frazier’s own statements. This mechanism will be somewhat similar to other gun types in the past. Weapon crafting is one aspect that is inspired from elsewhere.

Inquisition possessed this ability when it launched in the year 2014. Dragon Age is the big ticket game from BioWare which already comes with this feature. What we’re waiting for now is creative weapon names!

There will be no DLC season pass for the game. As per reports, a few alien species stand the chance of being left out from the trilogy as well. The ending of the game will be really crucial to say the least.
