Every Squad Romance in ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda,’ Ranked

A breakdown of the best romantic relationships available in BioWare's latest. 

Nicholas Bashore

Whether you like the idea of having a romantic entanglement during your journey through the Andromeda Galaxy or not, building relationships has always been one of the most popular features in BioWare’s experience. Mass Effect: Andromeda is no different, allowing you to dive into hours of dialogue with your favorite characters in an effort to get to know them on multiple levels. You’ll learn about their pasts, motivations, and tendencies; and occasionally, you’ll have the opportunity to flirt with them.

These conversations reveal some of the deepest details about your crew and squad members, giving you a look into who they really are behind all the combat and exploration. But if you manage to use the right lines of dialogue and build up a little bit of trust, you’ll encounter a rather intimate scene at the culmination of your relationship.

While you’ll have the opportunity to develop romantic relationships with members of your crew and other characters found about the Andromeda Galaxy, the members of your personal squad often tend to remain the closest throughout the game. Here’s our definitive ranking for every squad member’s romance you can pursue in Andromeda.

Needless to say, spoilers ahead.

5. Liam Kosta

Liam may be a security and response specialist who’s great at keeping calm in a firefight, but when it comes to taking you out on dates, he just isn’t as comfortable with sharing everything he’s interested in. Liam’s romance is filled with witty lines of dialogue and awkward outings which never seem to pan out as you might expect, though his dreams for a better home in Andromeda where everyone can coexist are enough to keep the romantic clock ticking. He may reveal that he sent an old car into space too, although we’re not sure how it fits into the bigger picture when it comes to your relationship.

4. Cora Harper

When it comes to playing by the rules, Lieutenant Cora Harper is someone who always has your back due to her heavy military background. Trained by an Asari Huntress unit called Talein’s Daughters, Cora has a romance that starts off with a bit of animosity since you ended up as the Pathfinder instead of her. If you manage to flirt your way through her defenses and complete her loyalty missions, however, you’ll grow a garden and romance worth pursuing containing one of the game’s most explicit scenes.

3. Peebee

Otherwise known by her full name, Pelessaria B’Sayle, Peebee is a lone wolf and explorer who grew bored of living in the Milky Way and joined the Andromeda Initiative to experience something new. She may be socially blunt in just about every conversation you two will have, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing when it comes to your relationship. Good with tinkering and sarcasm, she’s an Asari worth spending some time with during your journey through Andromeda; whether you’re looking for something serious or something casual.

2. Jaal Ama Darav

As a member of the Angaran resistance, Jaal first joins the Pathfinder team aboard the Tempest merely as an observer assigned to keep tabs on his people’s newfound allies in the battle against the Kett. At first, he isn’t very keen on revealing details about his past life or his people. But once you build up his trust and begin forming a relationship with him, he’ll take you home to meet his entire family and show off some of his childhood projects in a way we can only compare to Anakin Skywalker. Thankfully, though, he doesn’t go down the dark path and doesn’t forget to throw a little sweet talking in every few missions.

1. Vetra Nyx

Born on Palaven and often seen as a talented smuggler and mercenary, Vetra Nyx is essentially the female version of everybody’s favorite space boyfriend from the original Mass Effect trilogy. Like Garrus Vakarian, Vetra is a talented fighter who’s very good at her job and well, quite the awkward flirt when it comes down to business. In Andromeda, Vetra’s romance is all about helping her with her hard-headed sister and attempting to enjoy an overcooked piece of cow, which is something we’re all in for no matter how things pan out in the end.
