Reading Group Guide

Welcome back to the galaxy, Commander. A new threat has surfaced in the galaxy, and it has humankind in its crosshairs. This guide will help you neutralize the threats you encounter while trying to save humanity from extinction.
 
Every enemy you face is detailed. Every weapon is explained. We’ve assembled strategies, tactics and tricks to help you successfully complete every single mission you undertake in your push to stop this frightening new threat.
 
This is a galaxy full of choices, from those you recruit to the words uttered in conversation. Let us offer this guide that shows you the consequences of your words and deeds. Knowing what’s in store around every corner will help you in matters of war... and love.
 
The Introduction summarizes the events that occurred during the original Mass Effect, and brings you up to speed on Commander Shepard's current condition.
 
Use the Training chapter to get acquainted with basics like character creation, classes, and controls. This chapter also details all of the powers Shepard and the squad can acquire, from tech powers to biotic attacks. Combat is detailed here, too, including a list of all weapons.
 
Shepard can research special upgrades to weapons, the ship, armor, and powers. The Upgrades and Research Projects  chapter details all research projects available from Cerberus including the costs in minerals like element zero and iridium, which must be recovered on missions or mined from planets.
 
The detailed Walkthrough section covers every mission Shepard must undertake to neutralize the newest threats to humanity. With exclusive, fully labeled maps created especially for this guide, this chapter provides a thorough exploration of Mass Effect 2.
 
Shepard and the team are offered a host of small assignments in cities like Nos Astra on Illium and the Citadel, which are detailed in the Special Assignments chapter. All of the assignments in this chapter are optional, but most result in experience, credits, minerals, or a combination of the three.
 
The Planetary Database chapter helps not only make sense of the galaxy, but also offers up a full chart of mineral richness so Shepard wastes little time excavating barren worlds. With the minerals this chapter exposes, Shepard can complete more research projects and unlock powerful upgrades.
 
All achievements for the Xbox 360 edition of the game are listed in the Appendix, as well as the full inventory of all stores in the galaxy.
 
The Bonus Content chapter features exclusive art and interviews to give you an inside look at the creation of Mass Effect 2. The concept art gallery reveals the evolution of the game's design, and conversations with the Mass Effect 2 team provide insight into the creation of the game!
