If you want a little bit of a bonus to Combat, Biotic, and Tech skills, choose Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Explorer profile. The Explorer doesn’t excel at any one thing but will give you a boost to each of the three types of skills. Choose this if you want the ultimate flexibility when it comes to skill usage.
If you have somehow stumbled upon this page and would rather be reading something other than a guide to the explorer profile, why not head over to our Mass Effect Andromeda Guide and Walkthrough.

Mass Effect Andromeda Explorer Profile Unique Bonuses
The Explorer only gets one bonus ability, but it’s one of the best in the game. Biotic Blink is the best evasion move in Andromeda and replaces your standard evade dash with a teleport. Biotic Blink teleports you quicker and further than your jump-jets or Biotic Evade, and can even take you through barriers.

Recommended Strategies and Skills for Use With the Explorer Profile
Choosing to be an Explorer profile user opens up a lot of options for you. While the six other profiles are meant to center around specific strategies, you’re free to devise your own way to do things. The bonuses the Explorer receives aren’t focused on making the profiler great at anything, but it can be good at a lot. If you decide to use the Explorer, mix and match powers until you find a combo that works for you.
