Intel Terminal is an upgrade terminal in Mass Effect 3, located in Liara T'Soni's cabin on the Normandy. When you find Intel items during Missions or by scanning certain systems, they are stored in this terminal. You can access them and select one of the two possible upgrades. The selected upgrade will provide a permanent stat bonus.

All Intel Terminal Upgrades

Armor Modkit

Feron has persuaded his contacts to ship an armor modkit to the Normandy. Technically illegal in Citadel space, the kit's omni-gel converter and minifacturing fabricator can make a one-time modification to Shepard's armor, improving shield strength or adding thermal clip compartments.

Location: You can obtain the Armor modkit after returning to the Normandy from the Citadel for the first time. It is only available if you have completed Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC in Mass Effect 2.

You can choose one of the following effects: 

  • Ammo Capacity bonus +5%
  • Shield Strength Bonus +5%

Weapon Upgrade Kit

This field kit can be used for a one-time upgrade to a variety of weapons to increase ammo capacity or the potential damage dealt. Schematics have been scanned into the Normandy's onboard computers.

Location: Scan Verush, located in the Harsa System within Kite's Nest cluster.

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Ammo Capacity +5%
  • Weapon Damage +5%

Advanced Biotic Implants

This advanced amp is a sophisticated biofeedback system that interfaces with a set of armor's microcomputers. The amp can be set to help streamline the use of biotic skills and combat powers, or increase their damage instead.

Location: Scan the planet Metaponto, in the Aquila system, within the Ismar Frontier cluster.

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Power Damage +5%
  • Power Recharge Speed +5%

Miniaturized Armor Capacitors

This data was discovered and downloaded from inside the Geth Consensus. Thousands of these miniaturized capacitors were installed beside armor power cells, where they can instantly discharge a stored boost of energy. This boost can be tweaked either to speed up shield regeneration, or the rate at which tech, biotic, and combat powers can be used.

Location: You will receive the Miniaturized Armor Capacitors inside the Geth Consenssus in Rannoch: Geth Fighter Squadrons

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Shield Regen Speed +5%
  • Power Recharge Speed +5%

Gallae's Electronic Signature

Matriarch Gallae was an Asari of some importance, with connections to Asari High Command and the Council itself. Her electronic signature can be used once before security protocols realize it has been activated by someone else. Gallae's contacts can open elite training facilities for reconditioning soldiers, or on behalf of the Asari embassy, grant someone a discount at all Citadel stores.

Location: You can obtain Gallae's Electronic Signature in Kallini: Ardat-Yakshi Monastery

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Power Damage +5%
  • Store Discount +5%

Volus Intelligence Archives

The salarian Special Tasks Force appears to have approached the Vol Protectorate about codeveloping combat implants that require rare elements found in volus space. The schematics for these implants include plans to retrofit them to non-salarian species, should it be a sufficiently profitable venture. One of these upgrades should be commissioned, although its construction would be time-consuming and must be custom-made.

Location: Scan Oma Ker, in the Nura System, within the Aethon Cluster

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Power Damage +5%
  • Health +5%

Med Bay Surgery

This minor surgery will erase all scarring from your cybernetic implants. If you forego any cosmetic improvements, you will instead get a small boost to your overall health.

Location: Complete Citadel: Medical Supplies

Note that if Commander Shepard's scars were healed during Mass Effect 2, the only option available to you will be to receive the additional Health.

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Heal Scars
  • Health +5%

Prejek Paddlefish

This fish is a rare and valuable subspecies of the prejek paddlefish, prized for its rich and savory flavor. The breed is endangered, and a member of the Hanar Illuminated Primacy is offering a choice of rewards in exchange for the fish.

Location: It can be obtained by importing a Mass Effect 2 save file where Commander Shepard purchased the Prejek Paddle Fish, and Kelly Chambers and Shepard's fish survived. When meeting Kelly again on the Citadel in Mass Effect 3, she will return Shepard's fish. 

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Weapon Damage +10%
  • Power Damage +10%

Remains of Reaper Destroyer

To avoid the risk of indoctrination, remote drones have been sent to study the salvaged remains of a Reaper destroyer. The drones can dig under the outer hull, scanning circuits for technology that will increase the speed at which tech, biotic, and combat abilities can be fired. Alternatively, the Council has offered a Citadel-wide merchant discount for choosing the safer option and demolishing the remains.

Location: Scan the planet Borr, in the Asgard System, within the Exodus Cluster

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Store discount Bonus +5%
  • Power Recharge Speed +5%

Improved Geth Resistors

These schematics were downloaded from the Geth Consensus. They appear to be designs for improved resistor terminals in Geth platforms. The schematics can easily be built into human-sized armor, providing the wearer combat benefits enjoyed by the Geth. The resistors can be tweaked either to increase the wearer's damage output, or improve their shields.

Location: You will receive the Improved Geth Resistors inside the Geth Consenssus in Rannoch: Geth Fighter Squadrons

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Shield Regen Speed +5%
  • Power Recharge Speed +5%

Intel from Battle of Arcturus

Telemetry captured from Arcturus Station shows just how quickly Reapers poured in from the relay and tore through Alliance fleets. VIs can analyze hostile fire in the data collected to increase weapon damage. They can also spend processing power looking for ways to improve shielding against Reaper weapons.

Location: Scan Arcturus Station, in the Arcturus system, within the Arcturus Stream cluster

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Weapon Damage +5%
  • Shields +5%

Intact Reaper Weapon

The barrel of this Reaper weapon can be dismantled for further study. If the miniaturized energy cells powering the gun's systems are taken apart, it could lead to improvements in the damage a weapon can deal. However, an examination of its heat venting systems could instead provide the means to maximize thermal clip storage.

Location: Scan the planet Trategos, in the Pelion system, within the Nimbus Cluster

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Weapon Damage +5%
  • Ammo Capacity +5%

Research Data from Pragia

Data on experimental gene therapies was buried in the ruins of the Pragia Research Facility. While most gene therapy takes years to show results, Pragia's scientists discovered a way to shorten the process. Two intact sample vial have been recovered from the facility. The only limiting factor is that no more than one such therapy can be applied per ten-month period without causing serious nerve damage to the recipient.

Location: Scan the planet Pragia, in the Dakka system, within the Nubian Expanse cluster

You can choose one of the following effects:

  • Power Recharge Speed +5%
  • Power Damage +5%
