Task: Nomad Shield Crafting is an Additional Task in Mass Effect: Andromeda.


  • Land on Voeld
  • Talk to the angaran mechanic


After landing on Voeld, likely as part of the Priority Op A Trail of Hope, in the angaran Resistance base, look for the mechanic in the hangar when entering from the west, standing next to a large vehicle. Talk to him, where he expresses his admiration for the Nomad's capabilities and offers to share blueprints to upgrade it.

Use any available Research Station, on Voeld or the Tempest, to develop the Improved Shield Regenerator blueprint in the "Nomad" category.

Cost: 120 Iron, 40 Nickel, 30 Platinum


270 xp.


  • Possible Bug: If you manage to buy that Shield Upgrade on another planet, the mission wont finish. You are unable to craft the necessary Equipment. Fixed in patch 1.06.
  • Another bug: After this quest acquisition that blueprint is added automatically to your inventory and this quest finishes upon acquisition. Proved on patch 1.10.
  • If you purchased the shield upgrade, e.g. from the Nexus Vehicle merchant, you receive the blueprint and the task auto-completes when the conversation is over. You receive no xp reward, and task is listed among Completed Missions. Verified after the release of patch 1.10.
