The Pathfinder Pioneer is an assault rifle in Mass Effect: Andromeda.


Description Edit

The Pioneer feeds data directly to a Pathfinder's SAM, allowing adjustments to the automatic weapon's balance, recoil, and heat buildup. The first Pathfinder weapon was developed by Andromeda Initiative scientists to serve as a virtual extension of its user's body.

Features Edit

  • Like all weapons in the Pathfinder Elite Weapons Set, the Pioneer is not available above Rank V.
  • The Pathfinder Pioneer fires in 3 round bursts.
  • Despite being classified as a Rare weapon, the Pioneer only has 2 augmentation slots.

Bugs Edit

  • In the development menu, all iterations of the Pioneer will be found grouped together in the Rank I area.
  • The game incorrectly flags the Pioneer as fully automatic, preventing the Automatic Fire System augmentation from being applied to it.
