Mass Effect Andromeda resources guide: Where to find Element Zero and other rare materials

Mass Effect: Andromeda has an intricate and deep crafting system. You’ll be able to craft weapons, armor, and augmentations, making for a truly customisable character and experience.

You’ll need to ensure you have all of the requirements for every piece of technology, however, and this generally means having a combination of Minerals, Bio Minerals, and Tech Materials in your inventory.

In this guide, we’ll take you through most of the materials found throughout Mass Effect: Andromeda, including where to find them and how rare they are.

Common Materials

Omni-Gel Canister

Where To Find: Omni-Gel is among the easiest minerals to find in Andromeda. It can be found on exiles from the Milky Way, as well as on their weapons and armor by dismantling anything you find from them. Most merchants also have it stocked.


Where To Find: There are two main ways to find Iron. The first is with the Tempest when you scan a planet. The orbital scan will pick up the signal, and you’ll be able to mine for it. It’s also common on most planets, and can be mined with the Nomad by press right on the d-pad, and then RB/R1 whenever Iron deposit graph spikes.
