The Cryo Beam (Tech) skill is required to get the "Icebreaker" trophy. Use the Cryo Beam skill to freeze an enemy. Then, press X to jump and Triangle to perform a melee attack. The enemy has to die from this attack to get the trophy. Set the difficulty to Normal or higher or else enemies will die before freezing. You will know they are frozen when they fall to the ground, unable to move. Stop using the Cryo Beam just before the enemy's health is depleted or else it will kill them.
The Flamethrower (Tech) skill is required to get the "Pyrotechnics Expert" trophy. Lighting three enemies on fire with one continuous flamethrower attack works best with enemy dropships. Wait under a dropship and when the enemies jump out, immediately use the flamethrower on them. You encounter a lot of dropships throughout the game. This can be done on the very first dropship in "Chapter 1: Planetfall" (Habitat 7). Every drop ship has at least a few enemies jumping off it at the same time. Make sure to set the difficulty to Normal or higher or else the enemies will die before they start to burn. You can also do this where enemies are standing close together so you can hit them all before the flamethrower runs out.
Once you are on the Tempest spaceship, go to the Research and Development terminal next to Liam to learn and craft weapons and armor. The iconic N7 armor from the original trilogy can be found under the Milky Way galaxy tab and requires a total of 250 Milky Way research points to unlock the entire set. The chest piece costs 100 points and the other three pieces cost 50 each. The N7 armor is also upgradeable for additional research points. The N7 chest piece increases shields by 10%, biotic power damage by 8%, and biotic recharge speed by 15% after fully upgraded. The N7 arms, legs, and helmet have the same bonuses and provide 7% increased shields and biotic power damage after a full upgrade. Wearing the complete and fully upgraded set provide 31% increased shields, 29% biotic power damage, and 15% recharge speed.
You can unlock extra inventory space shortly after reaching Eos (first planet). After colonizing the planet and choosing between the science or military outpost, you are introduced to the AVP system on the Nexus. You will get AVP points for completing objectives, such as additional tasks and Heleus missions. These can be spent to release additional Cryo pods and earn bonuses. Once you have the ability to waken extra members of the Nexus crew, you can unlock a perk to increase your item limit and carrying capacity. Navigate to the Commerce Pods section of the menu (you are automatically introduced to the menu through story progression), and select "Trade Capacity" to find it.
There is an orange chest in the room next to the shop on the Nexus. Open it, take all but one item, save, and then reload the save. The orange chest will be restocked. Repeat this exploit as many times as desired. You can get high level weapons from the orange chest. Note: It is highly recommended to create a save before starting this exploit, just in case you accidentally take all the items from the chest. Additionally, this exploit was performed on an unpatched version of the game. It may eventually get patched. To avoid not being able to use this exploit, either do not install new patches before using it or delete the patches. You can avoid patches being installed by disconnecting from the internet until you are ready for the game to install new patches.
Go to "Hyperion - Habitation Deck" on the Nexus and interact with the Archive System. Select "General logs", "Asari archaeologist", and "Dr. Liara T'Soni" to listen to audio logs from Liara T'Soni. She is an asari researcher who appeared in all previous Mass Effect games.
In the Tempest ship, go down into the sleeping area next to the meeting room (Tempest - Deck 1) to find a Peashooter and Scientist toy on a bed.
On the Tempest spaceship, go down the ladder to the med bay. After talking to the doctor, look for a large machine in the corner of the room with a human skeleton on it. Interact with the machine to respec your character. The first reset costs 20 credits, the second costs 520 credits, and it gets gradually more expensive for each additional one. During open world travel, you can quickly return to the Tempest while driving the Nomand vehicle. Hold Y to be teleported back to the spaceship.
If you choose the 'Grey Market Connections' Andromeda perk, It is possible to abuse a bug with the merchant Thrasia at the wind farm on Kadara for unlimited credits. This would work with conceivably any merchant that offers you a personal discount, but it is a sure thing with this method. If you complete Thrasia's mission "A Package Deal" and return and demand a refund, she will refuse but offer a discount at her store. Normally this discount wouldn't break the merchant, but with the Grey Market perk, you will sell items for 10% more than what they're worth. This way you can sell her large amounts of rare materials at once, and then buy them all back and get a large chunk of credits for your trouble.
