First thing's first—Mass Effect: Andromeda's Remnant puzzles have a few rules that will help you in your attempts to solve them.

  • All grid spaces must be filled with glyphs.
  • Red glyphs are locked in.
  • Each glyph in a row must be different. No repeats!
  • Each glyph in a column must be different. No repeats!
  • No highlighted shape can include repeats of the same glyph. These shapes can be different but begin as squares.

Does any of this sound familiar? I should hope so! Let's get on to that remnant decryption, huh?

Remnant decryption puzzles are effectively mini-Sudoku games that can be solved quite easily with some well-known tips and tricks that would normally be used for Sudoku.

  • Keep an eye out for any row or column with three glyphs pre-filled. You'll already know what the fourth one is just by process of elimination.
  • Think about the "can't"s as well as the "cans". Sometimes, even if you don't know what goes where, you will be able to know what can't go somewhere. Ruling out a possibility based on the fact that there can't be a repeat in a certain row or column is a great way to go!

Using those tips can help you figure out enough of the remnant decryption puzzle to make things easier the rest of the way through.

  • Kadara Vault

Here's how you can get yourself through the Kadara Vault:

Get to the vault's lower level, activate the emergency console, followed by the smaller terminals. Be careful as the force fields surrounding each will eat away at your shields. Once done, head into the next room, launch yourself across the gap and get clicking on that terminal to lower the other columns straight in front of you. Now get yourself over there.

Next you'll need to activate the smaller terminals in the room to get the purification process underway. You'll have to deal with some Remnant here and finally activate the terminal to open the main door. As soon as the purification process begins activate the terminal just outside the door and then make your way to the right.

Then you've gotta handle the Remnant in this next space and eventually make your way to the terminal at the far end of the room. This'll get you moving to another set of columns. Use 'em to make a swift jump across the gap. Once there, you'll need to make your way over to the ramp via some more columns. Then head through the door, turn yourself around and use the terminal to bring this segment to an end. Nice work, pathfinder!
