Mass Effect 3 Tuchanka: Turian Platoon Side Mission Walkthrough

Tuchanka: Turian Platoon is a Mass Effect 3 side-mission that can be completed after Priority: Sur’Kesh.

You will receive the mission from Primarch Victus, when you return to Normandy.

When to start

After Priority: Sur’Kesh


“Primarch Victus has asked for help with a downed ship and has provided a NavPoint on Tuchanka.

Land on Tuchanka and investigate.”




To begin the Tuchanka: Turian Platoon quest, go to Normandy and in the CIC room, open the Galaxy Map.

In the Milky Way, travel to Krogan DMZ system and enter Tuchanka’s orbit. Select the Downed Vessel Point and land.

After you land, head forward, and just near the drop point, to the left, you will find the SMG Magazine Upgrade, on some rocks.

Pick it up and continue towards your objective.

The first enemies you will encounter (Husks) are standing on a pile of Spare Parts you can loot for 3125 credits.  Climb the ladder, jump over the gap and you will see two corpses to the right.

Near them is the M-9 Tempest. When you reach the next area, take out the Cannibals and the Harvester (stay in cover all the time), and go up the ladder to the right.

When you reach the next level, to your left is the Sniper Rifle Spare Ammo Mod.

Move forward, jump off the ledge, and at the end of the area, you will find more Spare Parts. Loot them (6250 Credits), and continue through the passage on the right side.

Near the corpse of a Turian, to the left, you see the Phaeston, and if you go around it, in a dead end is the SMG Ultralight Materials Mod. In the next area, after you go down the ladder, look for a Med Kit located near the first sustaining pillar.

Continue to advance and kill the second Harvester, and then go right following your crew. After you jump down, you will enter a corridor. To the left on a pile of stones is the Hahne-Kedar Chestplate.

Jump through the hole in the floor and in the next tunnel pick up the Flight Recorder (to the right) and the Shotgun Smart Choke (to your left). Take out the Husks protecting the Spare Parts (3125 Credits) in the next area, then go down the ladder.

Shoot the third Harvester and push forward, but make sure you pay attention to the right side of the tunnel, for a Med Kit (near a burning fire), and for the Sniper Rifle Extended Barrel Mod (to the left, after you jump off the high ledge).

In the last area, take out the Brute, Cannibals and the Harvester, and then talk to Lieutenant Victus to complete the mission, and gain access to the Tuchanka: Bomb side-mission.
