Memory Trigger Locations in Mass Effect Andromeda
Ryder Family Secrets is unlocked early on in the game. The core part of it centers on finding the missing memory triggers, at locations scattered around the main planets.
Eos Memory Trigger Locations
All the Memory Trigger Locations on Eos are easily findable by looking for their locations on the game map.
One memory Trigger is hard to reach, however. It’s located on the top of a section of mountainous rock. To reach it, drive the nomad up the slope in the picture below. Go up to levels then head right and follow the edge of the mountain round.
Havarl Memory Trigger Locations
The first Memory Trigger on Havarl is easy to find. It’s marked on your map in the south. The second two are best found during the ‘A Dying Planet’ mission. Head over to our complete walkthrough of ‘A Dying Planet’ to find the locations of each.
Elaaden Memory Trigger Locations
It’s easiest to tackle these three in order from south to north as you make your way from the Elaaden entry point.
The first is out in the open and easy to find. The second is inside a cave to the south of the waypoint marker highlighting its position. Simply head down to the lowest level on the southern side of the mountains and you’ll find the entrance. There are some big enemies in here, so be careful.
The third is on top of a mountain, but it’s a massive pain to reach. If you head to the south of the peak you’ll see a couple of gulleys leading up. Head up the one of the left and keep boost jumping. If you jump up towards the top left and keep pushing forward, you’ll scramble up and be able to grab the memory trigger.
Voled Memory Trigger Locations
All the Memory Trigger locations on Voled are clearly marked on the game’s map, making them very easy to find. They all are on the lower area and require to to move about inside the nomad.
Kadara Memory Trigger Locations
Two of the Memory Trigger Locations on Kadara are easy to find using the game map, but the third, located in the south west, is high up on a rock formation. To reach it you’ll need to drive the nomad up a grassy slope and then jump across.
