Description Edit

The Collector's main weapon uses the same principles as a human assault rifle, but its organic components clearly set it apart. Its power source appears to be an internal organ with biotic capacitance; its ammunition resembles pellets of metallic enamel that strip shields off enemies with deadly efficiency.

Acquisition Edit

Available as part of the Collector's Editions of Mass Effect 2 in the Collectors' Weapon and Armor pack, regardless of preorder. If you start a new game with this weapon already in place, you will have it as the default assault rifle for your squadmates (instead of the M-8 Avenger). Also included in the Recon Operations Pack.

E-Mail from the Illusive Man Edit


Our researchers have been working with captured Collector technology for some time now. They've developed an experimental armor suit in your size and an assault rifle that the techs say should take a standard thermal clip. I had the items delivered to the Normandy's armory.

Good hunting.

Squad Use Edit

This weapon can be used by Garrus, Grunt, Legion, Samara/Morinth, and Zaeed.

Player Notes Edit

  • The Collector Assault Rifle has a higher damage output than the M-8 Avenger, but with a slightly lower rate of fire and ammo capacity. It is less accurate than other assault rifles, although its accuracy remains constant rather than decreasing with continuous fire or movement so it's best suited for players who prefer to fire while running.

Mass Effect 3 Edit

Its power source appears to be an internal organ with biotic capacitance; its ammunition resembles pellets of metallic enamel that strip shields off enemies with deadly efficiency.

Acquisition Edit

  • Single-player: N/A
  • Multiplayer: Unlocked with a code obtained by pre-ordering The Art of the Mass Effect Universe from Barnes & Noble, or ordering a Mass Effect 3-branded Razer gaming accessory. The code could also be obtained by purchasing the digital version of The Art of the Mass Effect Universe or the entire Mass Effect: Invasion series through Dark Horse digital store by March 21, 2012.
    After October 9, 2012, it is randomly rewarded by purchasing item packs with Mass Effect 3: Retaliation downloaded and installed. The Collector Assault Rifle is categorized as rare.

Player Notes Edit

  • The Collector Rifle is a very accurate automatic assault rifle, and has good damage. Its greatest drawback is its cumbersome weight. It is best to use it on builds that do not rely heavily on powers. Its relatively low clip is also something to take note of, so be accurate with your fire.
  • Its accuracy is great for dealing with Cerberus Guardians.
  • Marksman with accuracy and fire rate upgrades can be especially effective, given the gun's already great accuracy. When aiming from behind cover, the accuracy becomes pinpoint, which allows for easy headshot capability.
  • Unlike the Collector SMG and the Collector Sniper Rifle, the Collector Assault Rifle uses thermal clips.
