Andromeda Elite Helmet is helmet armor.

This item has 2 augmentation slots available during development.


The Andromeda Elite Helmet is the only piece of armor that doesn't belong to an armor set. This is a helmet-only piece of armor that is a reward for completing Andromeda Initiative training at the Andromeda Initiative site.[1] Training involves watching 6 videos about the Initiative and takes approximately 20 minutes.

This helmet is acquired through the Special Delivery Cache terminal on the desk in the Pathfinder's Quarters on the Tempest.

During a New Game +, the Special Delivery Cache terminal resets and another copy of this helmet will be awarded.

This helmet can't be deconstructed to return resources and only allows the destroy option.

The sale prices for the Andromeda Elite Helmet do not fit any of the leveled armor pieces. This helmet is actually tied to the unique sale price list for the unleveled Remnant Decryption Key.

It can be modified during development with up to two of seventeen augmentations available for any armor component.
