There are dozens of weapons and armor sets in Mass Effect Andromeda. Every piece in your arsenal has a different purpose, and each piece of armor is designed for different conditions. You’ll often want to finely tune your loadout. The problem arises when you try to, since it can’t be done just anywhere. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to change armor & weapons in Mass Effect Andromeda.
How to change loadout in ME: Andromeda
As we’ve already mentioned, you have to be at a specific place in order to swap your gear. It’s called a Loadout Station, and it looks much like a locker. Almost every hub in the game has at least one, including the Tempest. You also get to pick your loadout every time you disembark for a mission, without having to go to a special terminal or anything.
Once you interact with it, you’ll get to choose the weapons you want to equip in each of the slots. You’ll also get the chance to customize your armor. This is also where you choose which companions get to accompany you outside.

You can’t. Sadly, there’s no way to change squadmate gear – they’re stuck with their starting armor and whichever weapons they choose. Many players are unhappy with this decision, but there’s nothing to be done about it.
