How to Get Remnant VI Battle Drone in Peebee Loyalty Mission

You have to complete several steps in order to unlock the Remnant VI drone and skill tree. The first step is to activate all three monoliths on Eos and finish the Remnant Vault. After that, go and have a chat with Peebee in the Escape Pod area on board the Tempest. She’ll tell you about her secret project. When you complete these steps, check your email and look for the one titled “Rem-tech” to unlock the next step in the quest chain.

The email tells you that you need to go to Voeld and fetch some Rem-tech from a Remnant site. The game will give you a navpoint so that you can find it more easily. The site is guarded by Remnant machines, so don’t let your guard down. You’ll then have to solve a Remnant puzzle. If you’re having problems with those, check out our Mass Effect Andromeda Remnant Decryption Solutions guide. Talk to Peebee again in the Escape Pod room.

The final step is to go back to the Nexus and visit Peebee in her apartment. Head to the first floor from the docking bay, turn left and go down the corridor. Peebee’s place is the last door on the right. You’ll have to talk to her once more, and the dialogue will reveal a tidbit about her past. Once you finish the whole sequence, you’ll unlock Remnant VI power under the Tech Skills.
