Mass Effect 3: War Asset Locations

Published on March 9th, 2012

Raise your ‘War Readiness’ rating as soon as you get access to the Normandy.

Seeing as the ME’s universe is on the verge of extinction, you don’t have time to mess around scanning every system in the vain hope that you’ll find something valuable that will raise your Readiness Rating in the War Assets menu.

Instead what you really need is some kind of guide to show you exactly where you can pick up the most important items in the Milky Way without incurring the wrath of rampaging Reapers and wouldn’t you know it, we’ve put together a cheat sheet which does exactly that.

Starting at the top of the Galaxy Map and moving in a clockwise direction, we’ve catalogued where exactly you can all of the War Assets we’ve located thus far during our game on a system by system basis. If you find any assets which aren’t listed below or on the next page please let us know in the comments.

      Well if you want to muddle through 20+ pages be my guest, but I think reading this list is much easier.

      You’ll only find war assets on planets, not floating around in space, so you don’t need a screenshot to accompany each one.

      Just head for the planets…
