Where to find Preorder Bonus Items in ME Andromeda

Many players have been worried about their preorder bonuses, since they couldn’t access them during the ten-hour trial version of Mass Effect Andromeda. Don’t worry, they didn’t go anywhere, they just weren’t available during the trial period, apparently.


That being said, your bonus items won’t be available right of the bat. You first have to download them separately in Origin (and I suspect the same goes for finding add-ons on PlayStation and Xbone stores). Once you have them downloaded you can redeem them in the game. If you’re still having problems getting your items, try closing the game completely and restarting. That should fix the problem. You can access the items once you get the Tempest. This is still fairly early on in the game, so you won’t be missing out. Once on board your ship, go to your quarters and access the Special Delivery Cache on your desk to retrieve all of your bonus items. You’ll be able to use all of the single player bonuses immediately. As a side note, don’t get confused if the armor sets you get have only two pieces, it’s still the whole armor.

Unlocking your multiplayer bonuses requires one extra step. You simply need to enter the multiplayer, go to the store and then select Rewards. That’s where your multiplayer booster pack is waiting for you.

Pet Pyjak – How to Get It

This process is a little more complicated than the others are, but it’s still not too difficult. The first step is to go to your quarters on the Tempest and access your email terminal. You should have an email from Herik titled Pyjak. Acknowledge the email.

The second step is on the Nexus Docking Area, but you won’t be able to do it immediately. Instead, you’ll need to get into the Tempest and fly out of the Nexus. When you come back, you can activate the quest, and the game will show you a marker. Find the crate and examine it.

When you enter the Tempest next, you’ll get another quest marker that will lead you straight to your new ship companion. Pet the Pyjak to complete the quest.

    The pre-order items are all missing with the exception of the Nomad skin. Went to the Pathfinder’s quarters, retrieved them from the terminal, yet they are MIA.

      Hey I had to completely close Mass effect. Not just exit to main screen. Restart it up and the items were there. Good luck Pathfinder!

    For anyone still having trouble you have to download it separately, I just found it under “Extra Content” on the PC version for Origin.

    To anyone having trouble retrieving their items. Try completely closing Mass effect. Not just exiting to main menu. Then restart it and hopefully your items are there. I had to do that, then I had them. Ofc download and install them first.

    For Xbox One users. Go into your “My Games and Apps” and make sure they’re not in the “Ready to Install”. Found they were there waiting to be installed even after putting in the 25 digit code. Hope this helps!

      I had to go back to the mass effect pre-order bonus and install it from the store page, then completely shut everything down and reloaded into the game. Then I got it. Hope this helps!

    Im on ps4. Deluxe edition pre order. Went to multiplayer opened packs, went back to ship…nothing. Nada. Zilch. Closed it completely out, restarted…nothing, not even a special claims option in my quarters. Really pissed off. Any reasonable response will do.

      Check your playstation store for the game and see if you have additional add-on content to download. IF you do, download it and then start the game – should see the rewards there.

    Correction, (if an Xbox user) go to “Games and apps” under “queue” look for recently installed, then go to your downloaded mass effect and tap the menu button. You’ll see a list of what is to be downloaded.

    Hey XBONE users, “Manage Games”–> “Mass Effect”—>”Ready to Install” —>”Install all”

    that is if you have used code. if not, use code then redo these steps

    Correction, “Games and Apps” > “Games” > press “=” on Mass Effect > “Manage Game” > “Ready to Install” > “Install all”. Should fix your issues.

    Explore and thrive!
