Task: Running a Fever is an additional task in Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Warning: This task is broken and has not been fixed by the developers.

Acquisition Edit

This mission is broken and is unable to be started during normal gameplay. The mission was intended to work like this:

One of the people in the house for Task: Broken Family is on a bed with a fever. The turian refugee says that some herbs might help. This conversation should have started the mission, but it doesn't.

The herbs could then be collected from the people by completing the mission arc Emergency S.O.S. and then Task: Herbal Entrepreneurs. Ryder should have been able to interact with the plants to get a sample, but that is not possible.

Walkthrough Edit

Note: This walkthrough portion is for a mod version of the game where the mission can be completed.

Pathfinder Ryder is able to take a sample of an "Unknown Plant". Ryder is given a choice to eat some of the plant or not. Eating the plant causes Ryder to hallucinate for a little bit while SAM speaks to Ryder. Ryder snaps out of the hallucination and SAM lets Ryder know that this plant could be used to help the Nexus Refugees. The mission objective is then added to the Journal.

Take The Plant To The Nexus Refugees Edit

Ryder takes the plant to the turian refugee and the mission completes.

Rewards Edit

  • +270 XP (Only for a mod version of the game)

Bugs Edit

This bug is well-known and has been reported. It has not been fixed in the game's final Update 1.10, so it is expected that the mission will never be officially fixed.

Note: There is an unofficial mod that fixes the mission: [1]
