In this Mass Effect Andromeda guide we'll walk you through how to find the Scourge Data Capsules needed to find Meridian, plus a tiny mission in which you play as your sibling.
If you aren't ready for a guide to this part of this game we've got plenty more on our Mass Effect Andromeda Guide and Walkthrough. Head over there if you want articles on romance, mining , AVP and more.
Talk to Suvi on the bridge of The Tempest and she'll come up with a way to find out where Meridian is. With a little help from the entire crew, you work out that to find Meridian, its possible trajectory through the Scourge must be mapped. Ryer and co must search the solar systems on the outskirts of Heleus to locate viable locations to gather data on the Scourge.
As is the case with many mission objectives in Mass Effect Andromeda, this isn't nearly as cool as it could have been. What you need to do is go to three locations on the Galaxy Map, scan for anomalies, and then investigate them. Each find will result in you obtaining a Scourge data capsule.
Scourge Data Capsule Locations:
With all three Scourge data capsules collected, head back to the bridge on the Tempest and use the terminal on Kallo's side of the ship. You'll trigger a conversation with Suvi about the Remnant city, the Scourge and Meridian. You've got all you need to find Meridian, but to do so you'll need to return to Remnant city in Khi Tasira (Civki).
Note: This is the start of the final mission in the game. You are free to continue exploring Heleus after the main story concludes, but the ending you'll receive will depend on what optional missions have been completed.
Reach the Control Center
Fight through a small group of remnant enemies, then activate the console. You'll have a short story scene and then be back on control of Ryder. Struggle to the door and then you'll need to get some help.
Playing as Your Sibling
As your brother or sister, work your way through the rooms, first finding a pistol and then taking out the handful of kett you meet along the way. Jet pack up and through the large door. When you come across a group of allies taking on a bunch of kett, ignore the fight and head through the door on the left. Use the terminal and you'll switch back to your sibling (that was a thrilling switch up, wasn't it?!!).
Back on Khi Tasira, use the console to try and open the door. You'll need to do this three times in order to be successful (got to emphasise that struggle, right?). Work your way to the Gravity Well and ride it down.
Numerous cutscenes and conversations later you'll find yourself talking to Cora on the bridge of the Tempest. You'll set of to Meridian and run into the Archon. Eventually you'll land the Nomad on the planet's surface.
Elsewhere on the site we've got a guide to romancing Mass Effect Andromeda characters, an overview of AVP and Cryo Pods, a look at mining and crafting, how to solve remnant puzzles, and a detailed look at combat profiles. Next up in this guide is the final part of the game as you take on Archon and finish Mass Effect Andromeda.
It's time to Chase that evil bad guy.
