How to complete Scan the Keepers in Mass Effect Legendary Edition – All Keeper locations

They’re all over, keeping things running smooth.

After you’ve spoken with the Council in the first Mass Effect game in the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, you’ll be tasked with exposing Saren and his involvement with the attack on Eden Prime. This is also the moment things open up in Mass Effect, and you can start grabbing a few side missions. One of these side missions starts in the Citadel Tower, near the Council Chamber.

There will be a Salarian named Chorban who will be messing with one of the green bugs. These creatures are the keepers, and they handle a lot of the maintenance that happens on the Citadel. He’ll ask you to scan them, and you’ll have to find all 20 locations of them. You can find them throughout the Citadel in several locations.
