Infinite M-920 Cain:
--------------------
After initially firing the M-920 Cain you can keep holding down on the fire button while hitting reload after every shot. The shots will keep firing during the previous shots' explosions (within about 2-3 seconds of each other). Remember: the blast can harm you and your squad mates!


Easter Egg: Probing Uranus:
---------------------------
Head to the Local Cluster and scan Uranus. The first two probes you launch will result in "unusual" statements from EDI.


Party member Loyalty skills:
----------------------------
Successfully complete a party member's Loyalty mission to unlock their individuals skills for Shepard. Note: Complete the Advanced Training research upgrade for your ship to be able to select the skills.

Armor Piercing Ammo: Archangel's Loyalty mission
Biotic Barrier : Jacob's Loyalty mission.
Dominate : Kill Samara during her Loyalty mission and have Morinth replace her.
Fortification : Grunt's Loyalty mission.
Geth Shield Boost : Legion's Loyalty mission.
Inferno Grenade : Zaeed's Loyalty mission.
Neural Shock : Mordin Solus's Loyalty mission.
Reave : Samara's Loyalty mission.
Shield Drain : Tali's Loyalty Mission.
Slam : Miranda's Loyalty mission.
Warp Ammo : Jack's Loyalty mission.


Romancing the Yeoman:
---------------------
If you chat it up with Yeoman Kelly Chambers often and choose to be kind to her you can instigate an "unusual" romantic encounter. You'll eventually be able to invite her to dinner. Additionally, you cannot let Kelly die in the final mission (choose a loyal escort for the crew in the final scene). After you beat the game, talk to Kelly and you'll receive an email from her. Go to your quarters and you'll be able to invite her up using your console. She'll appear and you'll be able to watch the evening's awkward events unwind. She's no Yeoman Rand, but she'll do.


Legion Does the Intergalactic Shuffle:
--------------------------------------
Approach Legion in his quarters and highlight him but do not talk to him. He'll do "The Robot," the traditional dance of his ancestors.


Double Your Hacking Rewards:
----------------------------
Occasionally, after completing a hacking minigame for credits etc. you can press A repeatedly as the window closes and cause the game to glitch out and let you hack a second time -- for another chunk of credits! We've confirmed that this is rare, but it does work -- so get in the habit of mashing.


Have Dominate ability and keep Samara alive:
--------------------------------------------
Dominate is a very useful Biotic ability that allows you to control organic enemies and turn them into allies, similar to the Hack ability that controls synthetics. In order to get this ability as a Loyalty mission bonus to use for your character, you must help Morinth kill Samara during the latter's loyalty mission. However, if you wish to keep Samara on your team but still have Morinth's Dominate ability, use the following trick. Play Samara's loyalty
mission up to the point where Samara confronts Moritnth. Save the game immediately before the confrontation. When it is time to choose who you will eliminate, choose the option that lets Morinth get the upper-hand on Samara and kill her. Create a separate saved game file. Go to the ship and talk to Morinth. Load the previous saved game then have Samara kill Morinth. You now get to keep Samara as a squad mate and have Morinth's Dominate ability when you choose a bonus loyalty power to add to your character in the prototype upgrade screen.


Legion: Unusual dialog:
-----------------------
* Take Legion to the Citadel. Talk to Anderson and the customs officer.
* Take Legion to the migrate fleet on Tali's Loyalty mission.
Security will force you to remove him unless you can persuade them otherwise.
* Take Legoin to recruit Tali. She will try to shoot him.


Unlimited Ammo, no reload and more live:
----------------------------------------
Edit C:Programm FilesTeam JPNMass Effect 2BioGameConfigPCCookedCoalesced.ini and replace:

AmmoPerShot=1 to =0 ;This make NO RELOAD
and every bInfiniteAmmo=true to =false ;This make INFINITE AMMO.
and Health=1500 to =9500 ;More health but with this ammo, can be hurt you...?

* First, BACKUP the file! some changes produces game failure.


Max Out Skill Points:
---------------------
To do this you'll need to have the Dominate skill, the Retrain Powers and Advanced Training upgrades and tons of Element Zero. You can get the Dominate Skill by recruiting Morinth (Samara's daughter), which means you have to sacrifice Samara in her own loyalty mission. A list of planets with Element Zero can be found below. First, purchase Advanced Training and choose Dominate. This will land you a bonus skill point, which you can use by instituting
the Retrain Powers upgrade. Repeat this process for additional skill points; one at a time!


Prequel bonuses:
----------------
Have a saved game file from the original Mass Effect and use that profile in Mass Effect 2 to get the following bonuses.

100,000 credits : Mass Effect character with the "Rich" achievement.
2,000 experience points : Level 50 Mass Effect character.
30,000 credits : Level 50 Mass Effect character.
5,000 of each resource : Level 50 Mass Effect character.
4,000 experience points : Level 60 Mass Effect character.
50,000 credits : Level 60 Mass Effect character.
10,000 of each resource : Level 60 Mass Effect character.


Baldur's Gate series reference:
-------------------------------
Space Hamster is available on Illium. Once you go into your cabin and select him, he will come out and do the same "Squeek" that Boo did, who was Minsc's "Intergalactic Space Hamster" from Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate 2.


Infinite YMIR Mechs:
--------------------
(Unconfirmed) When you reach the point in the Freedom's Progress mission where you are told to place your teammates around the giant blast door, you can trick the game into spawning extra YMIR Mechs (Ed: But why would you want to ... ?). First, position your team accordingly, and watch the cutscene. You'll now be confronted by a Giant YMIR Mech. Instead of killing it, turn around, and head BACK through the blast door. This will glitch the game back before the
cutscene. Place your team around the blast door again, and the cutscene will play. This will spawn an extra YMIR Mech. Repeat as many times as you wish, but more than three YMIR Mechs will most likely kill you!


Geth Pulse Rifle:
-----------------
Switch to the Hardcore difficulty setting before you land on the planet. Complete Tali'Zora's recruitment mission to find the Geth Pulse Rifle in the room where you find Tali. You can then change the difficulty back to its original setting.


Respectable Quarian Names:
--------------------------
When asking Zaal'Koris about his funny name/ship name the "Qwib Qwib" (on the Quarian fleet vessel), the real joke hits when he mentions desiring a more respectable ship name like "Defrahnz" or "Iktomi." These two names would have yielded the following Quarian names: Zaal'Koris vas Defrahnz (vas deferens) and Zaal'Koris vas Iktomi (vasectomy).


Recruiting Tali: Sunlight exposure:
-----------------------------------
While recruiting Tali on Haestrom, direct sunlight will damage you and your squad's shields and Biotic barriers. Because Grunt uses armor, he is unaffected by the sunlight and does not suffer weakened defenses while directly exposed.


Jack vs Miranda:
----------------
If you want a ending with the loyalties of Jack And Miranda both, then don't play the Miranda's loyalty mission at first. At first wait for Jack's mission to be available and then play it first. After the mission when they are fighting, support the Jack. Miranda's loyalty will be low. Then play her mission and her loyalty will back.


Humorous dialogue:
------------------
Wander around the ship in between missions to hear some funny quotes.

Stand next to Jeff "Joker" Moreau (the pilot) without interacting with him. You will hear him say things such as the following.
* "Why is it always claws and guns? Can't we piss off a fuzzy planet? Still dangerous,
I know. But hey, bunnies."
* "Two years and everything hits the crapper. That'll teach you to die on me."
* "You know what I hate about deep space? Crap radio stations from two centuries back.
My gosh, we were idiots."
Stand near the two engineers near the Mass Effect Core to hear the the following.
* Engineer Daniels: "Did you know we're sharing our deck with a krogan?"
* Engineer Donnelly: "Well that's just peachy."


Legion's Gamer Stats:
---------------------
At the end of 'The Lair of the Shadow Broker' downloadable content for Mass Effect 2, you'll find a terminal with all your teammates' dossiers on it. Including information only the shadow broker could get his hands on. You will find upon reading Legion's dossier that our favorite Geth happens to be quite the gamer. You can read a list of games he downloaded and even his scores and rankings on the leaderboards. There's even a bit where he is kicked for hacking some game, but he challenges the ban, and is let back onto the servers. I found this read to be worth a chuckle.
