N7: Abandoned Mine Walkthrough
In this Assignment you will probably face more Husks than in any other part of the game. Powers that deal splash damage will come in handy. In terms of squadmates, Grunt is probably the best choice because he is though and is capable of wielding his trusty Shotgun.
Once you land, head to your right to loot a container near a skeleton to obtain x2250 Credits. Enter the mine and a lonely Husk will run in front of you, dispose of it and head into the room. Immediately turn left and deal with the Husks that are attempting to swarm you. After the fight, you can obtain a datapad and a crate of Iridium to the right.
In the next room a Husk will drop from the ceiling and run to the right. You will find also four more Husks and an Abomination here. Notice the explosive crates on either side of them and use it to your advantage, just wait for their position to be ideal for maximum damage. There is another Iridium crate in this room, grab it before leaving.
Take the tunnel down, grab the Iridium crate to your left along the way, and get ready for more combat. Two Husks will drop from the ceiling, and another group of four combined with an Abomination will charge out from the tunnels. Dispose of them any way you can. You can examine the logs to learn what has happened here. You now can go to either your right or your left. To the right you have height advantage but a much smaller area; on the other hand to the left you have a much larger area, but you will be facing the Husks face to face, and poses a direct threat to you.
When you get close to the top of the ramp, EDI informs you over the comm that she picked up a massive power signature in the mine, and she suspects it is the source of the Husks. Worry about that later, because a massive amount of Husks is coming your way, so get ready to unleash everything you have, including Heavy Weapons if necessary.
When the Husks are finally down, keep going down and you will see the device EDI mentioned and the two bombs beside it. Don't head over there yet, you can loot a locked to your left, once you bypass it more Husks will come for you. Once they are down, use your time to explore this room, you will find a med-kit, some Power Cells and the credits from the locker. After the looting is completed, you can destroy the bombs to trigger the cutscene that ends the Assignment.
