Zaeed Massani is, without a doubt, the most feared mercenary and bounty hunter in the galaxy. His services have been retained by Cerberus at extremely high cost. He is currently awaiting pickup on Omega.
This mission is acquired automatically after completing Freedom's Progress.
The Illusive Man, Cerberus' mysterious leader, has asked Commander Shepard (as part of providing a list of potential recruits for Shepard's team) to travel to Omega, in order to pick up the infamous mercenary Zaeed Massani, with whom he has made an arrangement in order to recruit him.Normandy and wait for Shepard there, until you can discuss further. At the end of the conversation, the prisoner tries to escape, after which Zaeed shoots him in the leg.
Zaeed will be in the previously inaccessible Starboard Cargo Hold on the Engineering Deck of the Normandy. The mission Zaeed: The Price of Revenge will be unlocked after the completion of this mission.
- During the conversation after Zaeed has explained his mission, if Shepard agrees to complete it, Zaeed will respond "Good, get it out of the way so we can concentrate on being big god-damned heroes" he then shoots the fleeing prisoner with his pistol, adopting a "wild west" style draw. This is almost certainly a reference to dialogue in episode 5 of the hit sci-fi western TV series "Firefly".
