Mass Effect 3 Tuchanka: Bomb Side Mission Walkthrough

Tuchanka: Turian Bomb side-mission can be played after completing Priority: Sur’Kesh and Tuchanka: Turian Platoon; however make sure you beat this mission before Priority: Tuchanka.

When to start

After Priority: Sur’Keshand after Tuchanka: Turian Platoon but before Priority: Tuchanka.


“The Turian team that crashed on Tuchanka was trying to prevent Cerberus from detonating a bomb that would cause massive casualties on the planet. Land on Tuchanka and help the Turian platoon stop Cerberus.”


Turian Blackwatch War Asset


To start the mission, travel to Tuchanka using the same instructions as those mentioned in the previous mission, and go to the City Ruins.

After you land watch the cutscene, and get ready because multiple enemies (Assault Troopers and Centurions) will wait for you.  Clear the area immediately, and advance slowly towards your objective. At the end of the first area, you have to go up on a ramp to the left.

On the left side of the ramp you will find the M-29 Incisor, and at the end of the ramp, the Shotgun Blade Attachment Mod.

In the next area, after you kill all Cerberus locate the Rosenkav Materials Gauntlets, in a dead end to the right. Return to the main path, and turn left, but make sure you salvage the Console on the right side of the passage.

Continue to climb the demolished structure, and when you reach the next floor, to the right you will find the SMG Heat Sink Mod. Grab it, and then clear the floor and advance. When you reach the end, pick up another Med Kit, and the Pistol Scope Mod, then go down through the hole in the wall.

Take out the Cerberus that appear under the shuttle, then loot the area (where the shields are located) for a Datapad.  Follow the path to your objective, and you will reach a ramp. If you go up, you will have a better view over the bomb.

Climb the ladder to the right, and just in front of you is the Sniper Rifle Concentration Module. Go left, then right, and behind a metal crate, near a fire, is the Pistol Melee Stunner.

Now, go down and advance but stay neat the left wall to salvage the Turian Technology, for 2,500 Credits.

At the end of this area, you will see a Generator near some crates. In this place you will find a Med Kit and the Turret Control Schematics, required to complete Cerberus Automated Turret Schematics Citadel mission.

Go left, and then down the ladder. Talk to Victus who asks you to buy him more time so he can deactivate the bomb. After the dialogue, make sure you keep an eye on the sky for the Cerberus drop-ships. Focus your attacks on those areas, and make sure Victus survives.

When the Atlas unit appears, search the right side of the zone for the Hydra Missile Launcher and use it to bring the huge machine down.  The mission ends when all enemies in the area are dead. Watch the final cutscene and complete the dialogues, then return to Normandy.

Next ME 3 side-mission is Grissom Academy: Investigation.
