There are multiple ways for the new pathfinder to pursue a bit off Mass Effect Andromeda romance and get close to the crew.
Much like the original trilogy, players have the option to work their way towards establishing relationships with their colleagues or pure strangers encountered on a distant planet. However, do take note that the Mass Effect Andromeda romance guide is split into two portions.
The game allows you to play as either a male or female protagonist. Both get the same opportunities but with a twist. There are characters that commit to both sexes, and then there are those that are exclusive to either gender.
Exclusive Female Romance Options
As one of the original crew members of the ship, his loyalty mission will become available fairly early in the game when compared to others. He is very easy to flirt with and can be found in a room off the cargo bay.
After completing his loyalty mission, Liam will ask you to meet him at Podromos. Head over there and decide between a full relationship or a one-time thing.
You must be patient when pursuing Jaal. He is not prone to display emotions openly. Look out for the “couple” option after you have flirted with him a few times. Complete his loyalty mission and head to Hvarl for a meet. Talk to him and declare your intentions.
One of the easiest relationships to pursue in the game. She sits opposite Kallo on the bridge, and is always ready for a conversation. You can flirt with her, without worrying about disagreements. She is mature enough for a healthy debate.
Once you get an email from her, it is time to kick it off. Talk to her, complete her loyalty mission, and decide if you want to fully commit.
The Asari smash minds when it comes to relaying one’s feelings. She is the first character that you recruit when you start the campaign on the planet of Eos, and can be found in the cargo bay of the ship afterwards.
She is hard to flirt with but will open up once she tasks you with a couple of her personal missions. When the time comes, you will be presented with two options. You can either opt for a casual relationship or one that requires commitment.
She provides limited opportunities for you to flirt. Hence, it is necessary to seize every one of them. Be patient with her and work towards her loyalty mission. She can be found in the storage room of the cargo bay, but can often move into the quarters of Drack.
To cement things with Vetra, you need to do at least the following flirting:
- Choose “you’re intense” when you first chat on the Tempest.
- Ask about “anyone special
And in a subsequent chat on the Tempest:
- Say “I’m here for you both” during Vetra’s loyalty mission.
- Tell Vetra you’re “dreaming of someone”
Missing from most part of the game, his role will peak during the settlement of Kadara in the “Hunting the Archon” mission. Speak with him whenever possible and complete the Murder in Kadara Port, Divided Loyalties, Precious Cargo and Night Out missions.
Unfortunately, his commitment banks on your other actions as well. There is no guarantee that he will stick around afterwards.
The journalist has a thing for you as well. She won’t open up during the first few initial interview but will later give you options to charm her. Keri will be available regardless of whether you’re in a relationship with someone else or not. She is a one-night stand and will not affect your relationship with others.
