Mass Effect Achievements

First Aid Specialist

Use medi-gel 150 times

For this achievement, all you will need to do is press the Y button. Make sure you're damaged, or else it won't allow you to use the medi-gel. This carries over play any through. It is likely you'll get it after finishing Hard Core.

Does the medi-gel used to repair your Mako apply to this?

#1 no, that's omni-gel.

Curious, does this apply across multiple playthroughs? I've finished all my Biotics/Tech/Weapon kills that I can on a Sentinel through this one playthrough, EXCEPT the medi-gel. Wondering if I should throw myself at some things in Pinnacle Station to try to get this done or if it will carry over to my Hardcore playthrough.

All the other achievements carry over to new playthroughs. It would stand to reason that this one would too. Though I can not confirm this as it has not yet popped for me. Though, I don't use it too often. People have suggested that Pinnacle is the easiest way to get it as you get maxed gel for each mission. And it is a quick reset.

This DOES carry over across multiple playthroughs/characters.
This was my last achievement and started a new character. Got this on Eden Prime.
Saved before picking up a medi-gel with another around the corner. Let the drones do some damage, heal, Adrenaline Rush, repeat. I needed 93 more after 3 playthroughs. Didn't think it was going to be that tough.

Thank goodness for that. I wish I'd carried in on my old Xbox, fresh Xbox an saves means I'm further away then I could have been. I never used it often though.

Guys, isn't it easier to just stand outside the Mako in a hazardous planet, use medi-gel, enter the Mako, rinse and repeat? The only requirement to use the gel is to get damaged, and that looks like a faster way to me. Gonna do that, if it works, I'll post a comment again. Don't see why it wouldn't work tho.

Note that if you run out of medi-gel, you can always just replenish it in the med bay by going back to the Normandy, without needing to search for random enemies and stuff...

A quick way to farm this achievement (perhaps the quickest) is to find a fuel canister and stand right in front of it. Save your game there, then shoot the canister, if you are close enough to it you'll take damage, use your media-gel, load the checkpoint and repeat. I knocked it out fairly quickly.
