Below you will find Mass Effect 3 cheats. Cheats typically create an advantage beyond normal gameplay, usually to make the game easier.

Mass Effect 3 Cheats/Unlockables

Importing Character bonuses
If you import a saved game file from Mass Effect 2, you character and squad members’ level from Mass Effect 2 will be carried over to Mass Effect 3. You also earn Squad points for upgrading your powers according to your imported level. Your Paragon/Renegade points will boost your Mass Effect 3 reputation meter by about 25% and your morality choices will also be included.

Prejek Paddlefish intel bonus
To get this, import a game file from Mass Effect 2 with a live Prejek Paddlefish and then keep it alive until you successfully complete Mass Effect 3. After this, start a “New Game+” playthrough and proceed to Liara’s Quarters on the Normandy to get this bonus, giving you a 10% bonus on either Power Damage or Weapon Damage.

Chakram Launcher and Reckoner Knight Armor
You will unlock the Chakram Launcher and Reckoner Knight Armor in Mass Effect 3 when you download and start the Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning demo. The armor has a beefed-up power cell that energizes weapon systems to increase projectile velocity. The armor also enhances the damage you cause in close-quarters combat. The launcher comes with a fabricator for producing lightweight, explosive ammunition discs.

Easy reputation
During the game, as you are about to land on Planet Gellix to rescue the Cerberus Scientists that have defected, Dr Brown, an ex-Cerberus official will be there mourning her husband. Go talk to her and earn +2 reputation. You can then pause and save the game. If you load the saved game file, Dr Brown will still be where she was, and you can talk to her again for another +2 reputation. Repeat this as many times as you like.

Using powers on final level
Yu need a Kinect to perform this trick. In London on Earth, when you and everyone else will be running to the teleporter, Harbinger will knock all of you down with his laser. When you get up you will be walking in slow motion towards the teleporter while carrying only a pistol with infinite ammunition. Normally, at this point, you cannot employ your powers using LB or RB. However, it is possible to use Kinect voice commands, like “Singularity”, “Warp”, “Carnage”, or any other projectile power. Shepard is able to use the power while in the slow motion state.

Jack as a Phantom
Begin by importing a saved game from Mass Effect 2 with Jack alive. Next, make sure you do not rescue Jack in "Grissom Academy: Emergency Evacuation" before the "Priority: Citadel 2" mission, so that she appears as a Phantom in the "Priority: Cerberus Headquarters" mission.
