Mass Effect 1 Legendary Edition

Electronics

By
Claire Farnworth

Electronics is a tech talent in Mass Effect 1 which is available to Engineers, Infiltrators, and Tali, as the Quarian Machinist from the start and can be unlocked by Sentinels, Garrus and Liara later. Electronics allows you to repair or bypass objects and increases shield strength and the amount of hull restored when the Mako is repaired. Electronics grants the Overload ability which strips enemies of shields and damages synthetics.
