Resources in Mass Effect Andromeda are special items that can be found on the landscape by exploration or dropped by enemies and used to pursue crafting objectives. There are three different types of resources, listed below: Minerals, Tech Materials and Bio Materials.




Minerals are metals and other compound elements found on Andromeda planets, and can be used in Crafting to create better Weapons and Armor

Ryder can mine materials while walking around using the omni-tool, but you may also use a mining drone using the Nomad's mining system.
