The ND1 Nomad is an all-terrain exploration-focused land vehicle utilised by Pathfinders as part of the Andromeda Initiative to scout out potential Golden Worlds for colonisation.

Specifications Edit

The Nomad features twin hydrogen-oxygen fuel cells powering an element zero core, independent suspension for each wheel, and interchangeable four- or six-wheel drive. Like the Mako, it comes equipped with a rear fuel injection booster to propel it forward, and helium-3 microthrusters beneath the vehicle to blast it upward. It comes with the capability to scan planet surfaces for valuable resources and deploy mining drones to harvest those.

Customizable components include the following:

  • Thrusters - can hold as much boost fluid as needed for greater maneuverability.
  • Shields - additional power cells can briefly generate a protective field around the Nomad to protect the drive and its occupants when exiting the vehicle.
  • Shield Blast - if the Nomad loses its shield, in a last attempt to preserve shield integrity the shield power cells will discharge causing an area of effect shockwave that will send nearby enemies flying.
  • Radar - highlights enemies in the surrounding area.
  • Life Support - provides more hazard resistance.
  • Paint jobs - customizable depending on environmental circumstances.


Upgrades to the ND1 Nomad require element resources to craft.

  • Advanced Detection Systems
    • Allows the occupants of the Nomad to detect enemies through obstacles at a range of up to 75 meters.
  • Advanced Life Support
    • Installs power cells that can briefly generate a mass effect field around the Nomad to shield occupants as they are exiting the vehicle.
  • Agility Mode
    • Allows the Nomad's Stability Assist, which is always on by default, to be disabled, giving an expert driver greater control over the vehicle. With Stability Assist disabled, the Nomad is more agile, but will have less traction when cornering.
  • Defensive Fortification
  • Emergency Shield Discharge
    • When the Nomad's shields are entirely depleted, shield cells will discharge, generating a shockwave that sends nearby enemies flying.
  • Improved Boost
    • Expands booster chambers to provide a longer boost in both drive modes.
  • Improved Shield Regeneration
    • As of 4/24/2017, this upgrade is still bugged. It doesn't appear on the upgrade list, preventing you from completing the associated Task.
