Campaign (Act 1)

Campaign (Act 1)

Normandy (Second Visit)

Speak to Specialist Traynor to receive an N7 mission. (left) In your private terminal you can see the orders from Admiral Hackett. (right)

If you have the DLC and the Prothean Javik onboard you will be rewarded with a new gun and skill you can apply at the medical bay for 5,000 credits. Also, if you’ve been following our guide closely enough, you should also have over 50,000 credits, which you can use by heading down to the Shuttle Bay to upgrade your weapons.

Speaking with your other crew and exploring is a good idea to unlock new things. (left) Talk to James while you're down here to unlock his Fortification skill to use in battle. (right)

You can also have a sparring match with James to unlock his Fortification skill. Speaking to your team after every major mission or important side mission will earn you additional reputation points, and can, over the course of the game, unlock their special abilities for you to apply and use in battle (although you can only apply one additional skill at a time).
