Mass Effect: Andromeda - Ultra Rare & Rare Material Farming Guide

Here are the locations and uses for all minerals and materials in Mass Effect: Andromeda, including Rare and Ultra Rare.

In our Mass Effect: Andromeda Crafting Guide, we explain the ins and outs of research, development, and how to begin crafting gear in Mass Effect: Andromeda. The most difficult part of beginning your crafting adventure is knowing and finding all of the materials needed. Luckily for you, we've compiled a list of all of the locations of materials that we've managed to find so far.

In this list, we've outlined where and how to find each material and its crafting uses. A majority of the materials found here can be purchased from vendors, but there are a good few that can be picked up on foot or collected by defeating certain types of enemies.
