The M-3 Predator is a heavy pistol in Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, and a pistol in Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Mass Effect 2 Edit

Description Edit

Reliable, accurate sidearm. Effective against armor; weak against shields and biotic barriers.

Manufactured by Elanus Risk Control, the Predator is valued as a powerful, deadly, and relatively inexpensive weapon. While it is not generally deployed in the military, where kinetic barriers are common, it’s still very popular in the Terminus Systems where these defenses are less common.

Acquisition Edit

This weapon is obtainable in a locker at the start of Prologue: Awakening.

Squad Use Edit

This weapon can be used by Jack, Jacob, Miranda, Mordin, Tali, Kasumi, Liara, Dr. Amanda Kenson, and Wilson.

Player Notes Edit

  • While putting out less damage than the M-6 Carnifex or M-5 Phalanx, the Predator fires four times as fast as the latter and twice as fast as the former, keeping squadmates in cover longer.
  • Due to its faster rate of fire, the Predator is still the best weapon for Jacob and Jack, who lack a rapid-fire weapon. For most other squadmates the Carnifex is preferred for its improved damage output, and for Shepard the Phalanx is the best choice, if available.

Mass Effect 3 Edit

Mass Effect: Andromeda Edit

Trivia Edit

  • The appearance of the M-3 Predator is based on the default pistol in Mass Effect.
  • In Mass Effect 3, several cutscenes show Shepard and the squad equipped with the M-3 Predator, regardless of whether the character actually uses a pistol as a weapon or has a different pistol equipped.
