In-Game Description
This is a reliable, accurate sidearm; effective versus armor, but weak versus shields and biotic barriers.
Manufactured by Elanus Risk Control, the Predator is valued as a powerful, deadly, and relatively inexpensive weapon. While it is not generally deployed in the military, due to commonality of kinetic barriers, it’s still very popular in the Terminus Systems where these defenses are less common.
The M-3 Predator is found at the beginning of the game. It is the very first weapon which the play acquires. It is found in along with the player's armor when Miranda awakens Shepard from the Lazarus Project. All classes have access to the M-3 Predator.
