Mass Effect 1 Legendary Edition

UNC: Besieged Base

Ben Chard

This Assignment will be given on board the Normandy once your Paragon is at a specific level. It takes place on an Uncharted Planet that you must explore with the Mako.

(1 of 2) Once your Paragon is 80-90% full, you’ll receive a transmission from Admiral Hackett

Once your Paragon is 80-90% full, you’ll receive a transmission from Admiral Hackett (left), then make your way to the planet Chohe. (right)

How to Begin

As you explore the Galaxy in Mass Effect, you’ll get the opportunity to choose your own responses to situations, granting Paragon or Renegade points at times. Once your Paragon reaches 80% full, you’ll get a transmission from Admiral Hackett the next time you travel to a new Cluster on the Galaxy Map. Should you have received the UNC: The Negotiator Assigment for a Renegade score of 80% instead, you’ll need to bring your Paragon to at least 90% to be offered the Assignment.

Get to Medical Base

With the Assignment accepted, make your way to the Cacus system of the Hades Gamma cluster and land on the planet Chohe. Once planetside, make your way to the southeast to find the Science Base and enter the facility. Upon entry, you’ll receive a warning stating that the hostages are drug addled and may wander admist a storm of bullets. As Admiral Hackett remakred, you’ll want to save as many as possible.

(1 of 3) Command your Squad to stay at the entrance here

All of your targets are in the main room itself and comprise mostly Biotics, this means that things can escalte quickly, espcially with the containment cells littered around the room. Make a save to be safe, killing most of the hostages is well worth reloading and instead, head into the room to lure your foes and bring them back towards the entrance room. This should keep you away from the hostages and allow you to control the situation better, you may wish to manually leave your squad at the entrance so they don’t accidently shoot a hostage.

Once the area is clear, tkae take the time to loot the back rooms and then make your way back to the Normandy to give your report to Admiral Hackett. The more hostages you saved, the greater the Paragon points you’ll earn.
