Mass Effect Andromeda isn’t strictly speaking an open world game- but it is more open world than previous entries in the series have been. With its move towards open world conventions comes some of the same things that we see in other titles in the genre- namely, a boat load of collectibles for you to track down.
Seriously, there are a lot of collectibles in Mass Effect Andromeda– in this guide, we help you track them all down.

REMNANT DECRYPTION KEYS
Remnant Decryption Keys are consumable items used to override Remnant Puzzles- essentially, they are a one time use cheatcode that automatically solves any puzzles you don’t want to solve yourself. You need to find a lot of these so you have them on hand.
You can get these as drops from Remnant enemies, as well as loot in Remnant buildings and vehicles. You also get some early in the game. You are advised not to use the ones you have unless you really need to.
