No One Left Behind Achievement

  • No One Left Behind

     

    75

    Keep your team alive through the suicide mission

    To get this achievement, no one on your squad can die during the final mission.
    Here are the general guidelines:

    • Get max loyalty with everyone you can by doing their loyalty missions. This will ensure maximum performance from your squad members and they will have their special powers.
    • Note: If you lose loyalty with a crewmember due to a conflict, you will need 80-100% alignment to get the dialogue options to make them loyal again.
    • Get the following ship upgrades: Hull, Shields & Thanix Cannon. If you don’t so this, you WILL lose squad members.
    • Upgrading your teams weapons and shields makes a difference. Upgrade what you can, but you don’t need to get every single one.
    • Assign specialists for each job during the final mission. Using the hybrid characters will usually result in the deaths of squad members.
    • Don't take anyone not loyal to you into the final battle, as there is a high chance of them dying in the final cutscene.

    Jobs and top character choices (you pick one for each):


    • Tubes - Tali, Legion
    • 1st Squad Leader - Garrus, Miranda
    • 2nd Squad Leader - Garrus, Miranda
    • Shields - Samara, Jack
    • Escort - Jacob, Mordin, Grunt
Comments
  • This Stupid Achievment ook me 5 tries before it finally got it.
  • great achievement. it requires not only time (loyalty missions) and money (fully upgraded ship) but it also takes thought at the end of the game. players must know each squad members strengths and assign them the task the fits them best. tali, legion or kasumi in the tubes garrus, miranda or jacob as leader samara /mornith or jack as the biotic mordin or grunt as the escort for the Normandy crew zaeed and kasumi dlc not nessesary of achievement all "should" be loyal but its not necessary. very risky though. ship must at least have the thanix cannon, hull and shields upgraded by talking to certain squadmates.
  • I had Tali escort the Normandy crew and they made it back safely. Maybe it's just any loyal squad member for that one.
  • I managed to do this achievement, with also the lost of Miranda's loyalty after she has the fight with Jack (after Jack's Loyalty Mission). But it is possible...So if anyone else had a problem with that just msg me and I'll let you know how! :)
  • god damn this is difficult, if anyone knows how the hell to stop jack from dying please tell me, she always dies and it's only her who does die every time for the past 7 tries!, i havnt got her loyalty becuase of her argument with miranda so how the im going to get it it back!
  • Got it on my first try on casual with everyone loyal except zaeed and jack. Vents legion Fire team garrus Biotic samara Fire team 2 garrus Escort mordin Crew tali & legion
  • I always laugh when people say to use Grunt as the escort. This is the worst possible thing you can do. ANY loyal member can successfully escort the crew. Grunt and Zaeed are the only pure combat specialists and it is highly recommended that you leave them behind the "rear guard sequence"; that is when you go on the platform to fight the final boss and the rest of the crew has to defend the door. Every one has a combat rating which increases with loyalty and a certain score is needed to ensure everyone's survival. If you don't meet the score check then people will start dying off; usually in order of the weakest non loyal members first. To get the most out of the game, I always get the loyalty of every member but it is NOT necessary. You just need the right people. To test this out I re
  • recruited everyone and only got the loyalty of Grunt, Zaeed, Garrus, Jacob, Jack, and Tali. I used Garrus as team leader twice(you need him for the gun upgrade), Jack as the biotic specialist, Tali(need her loyalty for the shield upgrade) as the tech, and Jacob for the escort(you need his loyalty for the armor upgrade). I took my loyal tech and biotic expert on the final platform and made sure to leave behind my loyal combat guys: Grunt, Zaeed and Garrus to protect everyone else. No one died. I did have a full crew for this, including Kasumi. The reason why people don't get this achievement(even with everyone loyal) is because they don't know how important protecting the door is. So please, leave Grunt behind for this. The game even cuts to him for this part and he kinda pumps his shou
  • is there a specific difficulty to do this on or can you do it on insanity just as easily? Still need to play through the game on insanity.
  • You can do it on any difficulty. I really don't think the setting effects if people die more easily or not.
  • Okay the problem I had was I did have everyones loyality, but for some odd reason it said Grunt wasn't loyal to me. He acted and still talked to me like he was loyal, but the game said he wasn't so I ended up losing him. Is that a glitch or what?
  • Even with Grunt not loyal he can still live no problem. Don't bring him on the final platform and don't use him for anything during the final mission. If you have everyone else loyal then you should have enough firepower to hold the door at the end. Take weaker people with you on the final platform and leave stronger combat oriented allies behind to hold the door(like Garrus, Legion, Zaeed, even Samara).
  • First off, thanks for the posts, helped me realize something I was doing wrong as well. First play through I did after the game came out, I lost Zaeed on the final mission, he was not loyal. This time I made sure everyone was loyal, him and the master thief as well, and someone different died both times I tried it today...the posts about leaving a strong team to hold the door is correct. I had Mordin escort the crew, took Tali and Miranda with me all three times, including the final platform mission, and used Samara on the middle mission as the biotic (Legion as the duct work man)...and everyone lived. Love this game, looking forward to ME3!
  • One of the easiest achievements in the game!
  • Hey, If I make sure I save as I progress with no causalities will I be good to just re-load just in case I do get someone to die?
  • what the hell i didn't get it... the only one that died was tali and she died during one of the cut scenes, the one where your pushing the door closed towards the beginning of the mission...any suggestions so this doesn't happen during my second play through?
  • i'm almost there but i lost Jack's loyalty. can i still save everyone by upgrading the ship and using Miranda or Samara as biotic leaving her behind or am i screwed. please answer asap, trying to finish it tonight. thanx
  • I let legion take the tube and he died at the jammend door
  • tried 13 times on this tried different peaple for everything and everyone is lotal to me aswell and someone always dies in the first cutscreen or right t the after killing the boss in the cutscreen also this achievement is a waste of time :/
  • i did everything but only lost legion because of the tali arguement :/
  • i didnt know about upgradeing ships :S, going to start playing this game again and the guide says i need 3 ship upgrades or something like that, how do i get these upgrades?
  • bahh still cant get it right!
  • first time! woohoo!
  • The conflicts between tali/legion and jack/miranda do make this achievement a pain in the butt. I avoided doing legions and jacks loyalty quests until my paragon was full which made the suicide mission go smoothly =)
  • I didn't have any of the DLC characters yet but this is who I used to do this one. It was super easy, I got it first try. Tali - tubes Miranda - 1st Team Samara - Biotic Miranda - 2nd Team Jacob - Escort I kept Thane and Mordin with me the whole time. It worked out great. I got my Incinerate and Warp cheevos and everyone made it no problems.
  • Beat the game for the first time today morning. Did *not* get the achievement *even though* all members were loyal, had all ship upgrades, 98% of the weapon/armor upgrades (could not afford the last 2), Sheppard on level 30 and full paragon. Confession: I did not go to rescue the abducted ship crew immediately, so only Dr Chakwas survived - but this should not be any problem regarding this achievement, right? My selection was Tali - Tubes Miranda - 1st Team Jack - Biotic Miranda - 2nd Team Zaeed - Escort I kept Mordin and Garrus with me at the end. In one short scene at the final cutscene I could see Tali lying dead on the ground even though she definitively survived the Tubes-scene. The only reason for this that I figure out, is that in the very last battle she got
  • (Oops?!) The only reason for this that I figure out, is that in the very last battle she got left behind to guard the doors, but for some reason isn´t strong enough to survive. Hmmm, or the game internally rolls some dice for more randomness. Then I just had bad luck - which is my usual problem with games ;-)
  • This is the easiest achievement in the game, IF you do all the loyalty missions. Furthermore, you just have to make some logical choices. If you want a walkthrough, use this link: http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Suicide_mission#Suicide_Mission Best explination you'll find
  • I have lost Mordin for the first try. I should have sent him to escort the doc. Will see tomorrow. :) @#14 and #28: Yeah, you must have suffered a lot for 'Missing in Action' or 'Fashionista'...
  • For those who are strugling because Jack is not loyal (after the argument with Miranda), here is how I have done it at my second try: - Tali goes to the Tubes - Garrus is squad leader both times - Samara generates the Biotic Shield - Mordin escorts people to Normandy - Thane and Miranda are with me all the time except - The final fight when I take Tali and Miranda. It worked perfect for me - everyone survived despite Jack being unloyal. I thnk this can possibly work for those having problem with someone else being unloyal. The important thing is to leave that unloyal person to guard the door in company of Garrus, Grunt and Thane (they have the highest defense rating), and you will take with yourself someone like Miranda, Tali or Mordin (as they defense rate is low so it affe
  • *** appologies, the comment got to long, below is the rest: *** so it affects the overall defense rating of the team guarding the doors). I hope how I explained it makes sense for you guys. PM me if you have any questions. It's time to work on the Insanity then...
  • dude ur method worked perfectly!..i was missing the loyalty of jack and legion (i had them but lost them in those random arguments)..so i just didnt envolve them in any major way, and everyone lived..thanks!
  • tali died guarding the door in the end :(
  • phew phew phew insane final mission accomplish
  • i took Miranda and Garrus with me to fight the final boss, and had Miranda and Jacob die at the end of the scene….eh?? Miranda was right next to me and i survived. iv done all loyalty missions and suped up all their gear and got the 3 ship upgrades……..why did it work guys??
  • "Keep your team alive through the suicide mission" - Do they really mean "crew"? Do I have to make sure all the abducted crew members make it as well? I killed half of them (including Chambers, sniffle) because I took Legion's loyalty mission after they were abducted :(
  • I got this achievement on the first try even after losing Jack's loyalty. Just follow the guides.
  • I was on Normal setting, first playthrough and I did a whole lot of conversations between missions with paragon choices. After reading all these comments, I was real worried about Jack, but she was loyal and always with me. I let Legion go through the Tubes and he did great. I had Garrus lead the 1st squad, Samara was our shield and Miranda the 2nd squad leader. Jacob was the escort and Grunt watched our back, though it actually was with the entire remaining crew Zaaed, Thane, Kasumi, Tali, Samara, Legion, Garrus while Miranda and Jack with with me for the final fight. I'll have to say, after the fight when Jack started falling off the breaking panel, the hairs on the back of neck stood up because "oh no, she's not gonna make it!!" but Sheppard dove down and grabbed her. Just wow, thanks s
  • I got this achievement when I played first time on normal but I finished the game on insane today and everybody survived. This was my set up: tubes: Tali 1st squad leader: Garrus 2nd squad leader: Garrus shield: Samara escort: Jacob my squad: Miranda and Grunt This same layout worked with me both times. I have all the DLC and everybody were loyal. I also had every ship upgrades. My recomendation for this achievement is to get everybody loyal, buy all ship upgrades(expect those which doesn´t effect your ships defences or guns, for example med-bay upgrade). I also recomend to level up your character as much as you can and buy many upgrades before attempting this.
  • Just follow this guide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acWiIQ06750 The only thing I found that they didn't mention was that you need majority of the ship upgrades. Also instead of using Jacob as an escort for the survivours I used Mordin. Hope this helps
  • You need ALL the ship upgrades, else a team member will die before you even get on the ship. Doing all the loyalty missions for everyone before picking up the Reaper IFF is recommended for your crew to successfully stay alive. Tubes: Tali, Legion, or Kasumi. 1st Squad Leader: Garrus, Jacob, or Miranda Boitic Specialist (Shield): Samara/Morinth or Jack. 2nd Squad Leader: Garrus, Jacob, or Miranda. Note that Miranda will not die here even if disloyal. Escort: Ideal: Mordin. This will ensure his survival because he has a strong chance of dying if he doesn't escort the crew back, even if he is loyal. Otherwise, any loyal squad member is guaranteed to successfully escort the crew back to the ship. If for some reason you want Mordin for something else, then Tali, Kasumi, or Jack are i
  • Ok, what I learned playing through my Insanity mode is that if you don't pick the passive power of your class, then someone is going to die because you will virtually unable to max your paragon, or renegade bars, which I kind of think is BULLSHIT. I'm an Infiltrator and my operative class dealt with the sniper rifle and though I switched it again in my last playthrough to have a perfect one to take into ME3, I still think making a choice between saving your entire group, or upping your damage class is a total FAIL and I hope they don't do the same shit in the next game.
  • Ok, just for a guess, i've switched my operative to passive in the research module so as to make the critical choices between Miranda and Jack, Zaaed and then Tali and Legion. After those choices are out of the way, should be able to switch back to heavy operative for the final fight, since by then everyone should be loyal, you'll have heavier damage if you're going for the Insanity playthrough.
  • I have tried dozens of times yet Tali always dies! But this last time only Miranda died wich to me is a totaly acceptable outcome. She was a b*tch. Also I one shot killed the final boss with the M-920 Cain :D .
  • I had everyone's loyalty except Jack's (lost it in the fight) and i didn't involve her in any way, yet it showed her dead at the end of the mission. She survived every single part including the door scene, but somehow died at the end. Does anyone know a way to prevent this?
  • Did it 1st time through.Used Legion in tubes, Garrus both times as leader, and Mordin to take everyone back.Used Samara as shield and had Miranda and Grunt stayed with me all the time.
  • Grrr, I just made my 5th attempt at gaining this achievement. Made sure everything was done perfectly. This time Tali was the one to fall...she was loyal, she ran the tubes, however, she was the romance interest. So I guess if Shepard takes that role with Tali, she dies anyway??
  • I got it on the first attempt! Difficulty: Normal I achieved it without the loyalty of Jack and Zaeed. In order for Jack not to die you have to have all the ship upgrades that your teammates suggest when talking to them. My Squad going into the final mission was: • Vents: - Legion • Fire Team: - Garrus • Biotic Team: - Samara • Fire Team 2: - Garrus NOTE: SPOILER!!! Garrus gets shot here but don't panic! Let it play out. • Escort Team: - Mordin, if you pick Mordin for escort team it automatically secures his survival My Teams: • Collector Base: Infiltration: -Miranda & Grunt • Collector Base: The Long Walk: - Tali & Legion • Final Battle: - Tali & Kasumi keep in mind I had all upgrades possible! for all weapons and arm
  • someone always dies for me even when their loyal
  • Follow these steps and you will get it ***you must fully allign with paragon or renegade basically, the import from mass 1 bonus helps for that( explained below) 1)play the game till horizon 2)After horizon do Mirandas loyalty mission then jacks directly after that. (when they fight it weighs the amount of Paragon/renegade points you have over those that are possible to have until that point, the longer you put it off the more risk you run) 3) finish off the initial team members loyalty missions except for zaeeds if you want full paragon 4) at some point you have to do the collector ship finish it but do not do the derilict reaper mission until you have done all of the recriutment and loyalty missions also the upgrades for the shield hull, and weapons, these are from tali, jacob, an
  • i went right through the game untill i got to the suicide mission and then got a friend to get through the game alive but now i am trying to get through the suicide mission myself but i wont jack,zaeed and maybe jacob to die because i hate them while i wont everyone one else to live. i have done all loyalty missions and then lost jacks after the fight with miranda. if anyone can tell me how to do it please tell me.
  • Please stop reading these random guesses and go read the guide from post #28. it helped me the first time. there is alot more to it than just loyalty http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Suicide_mission#Suicide_Mission
  • always best to send mordin back with the crew hes the worst in a fight, also leave grunt and garrus behind when you do the final battle, take weaker squad members like tali and legion
  • Damnit mordin died at the door first try. Everything was going so well. I guess i did take grunt with me, i'll try again leaving him there.
  • Did it second go. Mordin escort(so he wouldn't die). I took tali and legion with me(wo i judge to be the weakest on their own less mordin), and everyone survived :D. The acheivemnt does not pop until well into the cutscene so don't worry about that.
  • I beat this game last night and the crew survived on my first attempt. This is how my crew was handled in theending: My Squad going into the final mission was: • Vents: - Thali • Fire Team: - Miranda • Biotic Team: - Samara • Fire Team 2: - Garrus • Escort Team: - Mordin My Teams: • Collector Base: Infiltration: - Mordin and Jack • Collector Base: The Long Walk: - Tali & Legion • Final Battle: - Tali & Legion I had most, not all, upgrades to weapons, armor and Normandy. I also had everybody's loyalty except Jack. I don't recall which difficulty setting I had the game on but getting this achievement wasn't difficult at all, and I usually suck at video games.
  • damnit grunt..figures the biggest guy would be the only one that dies
  • Very easy achievement. All you need is loyalty of all members and appropriate choice of characters for final level. Even if Jack was not loyal, she survived.
  • This guide is great but I wish it informed you "whoever you dont take will gaurd the doors, so leave grunt, thane, Garrus." Cause I was so unsure when the door thing would happen.
  • Jack & Legion were not loyal for me but i managed to swing the achievement ;)
  • Got it on my first run-through without much thought what-so-ever. As most people have said above you need: -The loyalty of all your squad members -Go immediately after the collectors abduct your crew (one mission will equal half your crew gone, 3+ equals all but Dr. Chakwas killed) -Have all possible upgrades for the Normandy -Squad selection is crucial for team members surviving the mission -Garrus as team 2 leader both times -Legion in the tubes (either him, Tali, or Kasumi) -Mordin/Jack for escort duty (they are the weakest fighters) -Samara/Morinth for biotic bubble -For the final fight I chose Miranda and Thane, as they are both weak fighters and they both have warp (as a rule, don't take Grunt, Garrus, Jacob or Zaeed, they are needed to ensure your rear-guar
  • rear-guard's survival) Apart from that, you are free to pick and choose your two squadmates as you see fit. For Hardcore and Insanity, I would recommend taking Miranda and Thane, along with Warp Ammo as your bonus power, as Warp tears through barriers.
  • Just finished my first playthrough. Everyone was loyal but only the two characters I took with me in the final battle survived. I don't really care about the achievement, but I don't want this to affect my ME3 game. Does anyone know if losing certain squad members causes any major problems in ME3 such as playable characters not appearing?
  • Hey! Quite a bit of different tactics here that seem to work. Unfortunately, I wasn't listening. I had every member loyal to me, but in the end I lost Mordin. Someone commented that he should be used as the escort. I used Grunt instead. I'll try again. This achievement is certainly worth replaying the end of the game a few more times. I feel really bad for anyone that has tried it 7x and not able to get this one. Although, I haven't gotten it yet either, so I shouldn't get cocky!
  • I was lucky I got this first time of asking just a moment ago. I got everyone loyal, left Legion and Jack loyalty missions until I was full Paragon. That way I could defuse the Tali/Legion and Jack/Miranda fights. Tali - Vents Garrus - Leader all the time Mordin - Escort Samara - Biotic Field against the swarm Miranda and Thane in the lead up to boss fight so I could spam their Biotic powers against the Collectors leaving me plenty of ammo against the human/reaper boss. Hope this helps at least one person.
  • I got this first time through and was surprised to see how many people didn't get it. I just paid attention to the dialouge throughout the game and made obvious choices picking the stongest people for each part (i.e. Miranda and Jack don't seem stable to me, so I picked Samara as the biotic, Mordin is smart but weak, Garrus is clearly the best leader outside of Shepard etc) Here's what I did: Vents - Tali Other team lead - Garrus Escort - Zaeed Biotic - Samara Hope this helps, my husband still doesn't have the achievement and it eats away at him everyday. :p
  • Mordin randomly died for me in the final battle even though he was loyal and I had every upgrade. I suggest sending him as the escort so that it doesn't happen
  • Jack allways dies lol
  • Got this on first try. Everyone was loyal.
  • Took me 4 tries, but I finally got something to work. Legion and Jack were the only squad members I had that weren't loyal. Tech Expert-Tali 1st Squad Leader-Garrus Biotic Field-Samara 2nd Squad Leader-Miranda Escort-Mordin Final Battle-Miranda and Tali Everyone else fought against the Collectors. Garrus, Jacob, and Grunt are considered strong defenders and can possibly keep your non-loyal squadmates alive. Since I left all 3 defenders behind, Legion and Jack lived. You may have already heard this plan before, but I'm telling you it worked for me.
  • Thanks to everyone who commented about using mordin for the escort and grunt for the door defense. I had this the other way around for my first run and mordin died during the door defense part, after making the correction though everyone made it through on my second run.
  • You're welcome DGM-payne. Not just from me but from everyone else who gave advice. I figured someone would read my comment and notice Grunt's a better defender. If you didn't notice my comment, then, uh, looks like I just embarrassed myself. Btw everyone, beat the game on Insanity as a vanguard AND got everyone through again, only Miranda wasn't loyal and I didn't romance anyone.
  • I played through this game without trying to get this or many other achievements. Luckily the game is that great that I was motivated to get loyalty for everyone even Jack after I lost hers, purchase upgrades for the ship (I thought to myself, what would we need upgrades for, maybe we're gonna have a big battle at the end?), and just play accordingly. I guess I did all of the correct ship upgrades because that all went really well. I only got 2 deaths which were Jacob and Zaeed. I let Jacob do tubes for Shepard's exact reason.. Because he volunteered. I let Zaeed do escort because I figured I was choosing which members to basically sacrifice and him being a DLC character I never really got a connection with him. I always chose Miranda as the leader because she's got the experience and I ch
  • Well I did an excellent job of doing the exact opposite of this: Jack died after about four seconds. Then in the next cut scene Legion amd Thane died (all three of them still on the ship) follwed promptly by Mordin dying while closing the doors and Miranda died during gameplay but I revived her so not sure if that still counts.
  • Crap tastic. I just finished and everyone was fine until the last second. Mordin freaking died. I know what I did wrong and I saved right before the final speech presuming that I wold do something wrong. If i go back to that save and (hopefully) fix the problem, can I continue mass effect 3 with my "fixed" game? Will I get a choice of which game to continue? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

  • Whoa, I apoligize for the whole message 3 times deal. I have no idea what happened there. I was not spamming and am really sorry about it.
  • Mordin keeps dying on me in final cut???
  • Mordin almost always die if you use him for something other then escort and he must be loyal I used the guide given by 41 above and i was an engineer on normal lvl. all except Jack are loyal. 1st part: Tali in tube, Garrus leader, Miranda and Zaeed with me 2nd part: Samara as biotic, Garrus as leader, Mordin escort and Grunt and Thane with me Final Kasumi and Tali with me. worked like a charm :)
  • I'm a completionist, so this was really easy. I was terrified that I wasn't going to get it but I refused to start the Reaper IFF mission until I did absolutely everything I could. I spent hours scanning planets for valuable resources and anomalies for assignments. Researched EVERYTHING. I did Miranda's loyalty mission last, then when she got in a fight with Jack (who I sided with), persuaded her with paragon to trust me again. Got the Reaper IFF, added Legion to my squad, did Tali's loyalty mission, did Legion's, persuaded both of them to concentrate their hate on the Collectors & did exactly as this guy did http://youtu.be/YPb8TX47TP4 & it popped up :)
  • Important that you at least have everybody except Jack loyal. Beginning Space Battle: If you don't have all ship upgrades, someone will die, so buy every upgrade for the ship. 1st Part: Use Garrus as leader of 1st squad, I chose Jacob and the Geth as my loyal partners. Have Tali Zorah as the engineer, and if a couple members are not loyal, Tali will die. 2nd Part: Samara as your biotic shielder, at least better than Jack, make sure she's loyal or one of your squad members is taken. Have Jacob escort the doctor back for rescue pickup. I chose Thane and Jack for my squad. 3rd Part: Escorter should have survived the mission at this point. I recommend you stick with the team you had for part 2. This is the final part so you don't need to worry about deaths. Everyone shoul
  • Is there a bit of luck involved in this achievement? I had to play through the last mission doing everything the same way 3 times to get this with 2 unloyal squadmates while my friend isnt getting it using my same method with full loyalty?
  • On my first attempt only freaking Tali died. Such a ridiculous death too. She got shot while shitting a door. Really? Now I'm just gonna start over from the beginning of the mission and not use Tali for the Tubes. I guess she died because I lost loyalty with her? Stupid.
  • I lost loyalty with legion and now he dies when the ship crashes before i make any decisions
  • Tubes: Tali or Legion Squad Leader: Garrus or Miranda Escort: MORDIN MORDIN MORDIN MORDIN. Use Mordin as there is an almost definite chance of him dying as you're fighting the final boss even if he's loyal (which I learned the hard way) and using him as the escort guarantees his safety Biotic Shield: Samara
  • Three questions: 1. if the squad member dies during the actual fighting but respawns, not during any cutscene, can I still get this? 2. if I die during the actual fighting and not during a cutscene but I respawn after I peers continue game at the "Mission Failed" screen can I still get this? Or do I have to restart from the previous checkpoint using a different save file? 3. My character is an adept, will I ever be able to use an assault rifle or sniper? I was on Mass Effect 3 as an adept from the beginning.
  • Managed to actually get this. It was a roller coaster of nerves along the way but I pulled it off with everyone loyal but Miranda. Here were my choices: First squad, against Oculus: Kasumi, Grunt Vents: Tali Fire Team Leader: Garrus Second squad, while Tali was in the vents: Kasumi, Grunt Long Walk Biotic Specialist: Samara Fire Team Leader 2: Garrus Escort: Mordin Third Squad, while on long walk: Tali, Legion Final Squad: Tali, Kasumi (This left Garrus, Zaeed, and Grunt behind as the main firepower to hold down the doors.
  • Got this easy. But didn't understand why Kelly died! It didn't stop this unlocking, but when I reached the body-snatched crew pods Kelly was inside and alive - we busted them out and then the medic woman said I was too slow (which was total bullshit!) and Kelly, et al, had died long before I arrived! WTF!? Sure enough, back aboard ship Kelly was gone!
  • ...Apparently, to save Kelly, once the crew have been abducted you have to go and rescue them immediately, whether you're ready or not! Annoying forced missions popping up and secret outcomes are what ruined this game - that and the retarded control scheme!
  • Leave at once to save everybody!
  • My proudest achievement :')
  • I got this on my first try! I followed the guidelines above and it worked. Tubes/Vents - Tali 1st Squad Leader - Garrus After you complete the first part You pick again. 2nd Squad Leader - Garrus Shields - Samara Escort - Mordin My Squad Was Miranda & Legion. *Note I did die and so did a squad member, but all I did was made sure I backed out of the game and loaded from my last save before any death occurred and it worked. If you die, don't press load. Hit main menu then go to load game and select your last save. Save often when able. :)
  • The weird thing is, I got this achievement and even saw it pop up on my screen. yet it's still locked in my achievements page. WTF?
