Player Notes Edit
- Unlike in Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, Energy Drain will restore shields and barriers even if used on a non-synthetic and non-shielded enemy.
- So long as an enemy is targeted, they will be hit with Energy Drain even if they are behind cover.
- With Team Support's tier 6 Life Support passive, Energy Drain will be able to restore both health and shields when used, making it very useful on higher difficulties.
