Strike team missions can be seen as a mini-game in Mass Effect Andromeda.

Strike teams are assault and extraction squads. They can be sent on two types of missions:

  • Single player missions which automatically completes after a specified time.
  • APEX missions which can be played in multi-player mode or as a regular single player mission.

Successful missions give items and credits rewards that can be used by any character on that player account.

The missions are running on a separate Real World timer independent on the game time. You can observe this by starting a mission and then load a previous save game - the mission is running.

The strike teams and the rewards are account wide, i.e. any of the characters on that account can send the same teams on missions and pick up the rewards.

Enabling the use of Strike TeamsEdit

To enable the use of Strike Team Missions interact with the terminal next to Kandros in Operations on Nexus to start the short authorization mission First Strike. Your space ship Tempest also have a Strike Team Missions terminal.

Types of rewards for completing Strike Team missionsEdit

Successfully completed missions:

  • The strike team will earn XP, and sometimes a positive trait. Aquired traits can't be lost.
  • The player account is awarded with
    • 5 - 10 mission funds (the total is visible in upper right corner; can only be spent on strike teams)
    • Research data (collect them from the "Pathfinder Rewards" menu).
    • Item rewards (collect them from the "Pathfinder Rewards" menu):
      minerals, tech materials, and bio materials (used for crafting).

Failed missions:

  • The team will get a small XP reward, and sometimes the team will aquire a negative trait. These traits can't be removed.

The strike teams and the rewards are account wide, i.e. any of the characters on that account can send the same teams on missions and pick up the rewards.
