Mass Effect Legendary Edition trophy tracking fixed

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
An update that fixes some of the Mass Effect Legendary Edition trophies has been released by BioWare. The update also contains a fix for a crash bug and some better terrain textures, along with a host of other small tweaks.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition

The patch notes specifically "[fix] an issue where kills for achievements weren't tracking correctly" for both Mass Effect and Mass Effect 3. In the overarching trophy list, the cumulative kills trophies appear to be bugged. In particular the ones awarded for a specific number of enemy kills across all three games. Three trophies caught players attention: Recruit (250 kills), Soldier (1,000), and Veteran (2,000 kills). In addition, there was an issue with Bruiser, which requires you to get your omni-tool out and "kill 100 enemies with melee attacks." My pleasure.

Though most should have been fixed, chatter on the TrueAchievements forums reports that there may still be issues. There are a few wild fixes in there, too — I, for one, have never seen a headset-related crash before. Here are the full patch notes:

May 17th update


  • Fixed the main issue where the launcher would crash or become unresponsive on Xbox Series X when using a wireless headset
  • Known issue: This can still happen if you enable/disable a headset in the launcher. A future fix will resolve this issue.
  • Improved iris shaders for better interaction with light and ambient occlusion
  • Minor calibrations, fixes, and stability improvements

Mass Effect

  • Improved terrain textures
  • Fixed an issue where kills for achievements/trophies weren’t tracking correctly

Mass Effect & Mass Effect 2

  • Resolved an issue where the character code would sometimes not display in the squad menu
  • Improvements to pre-rendered cutscenes to reduce occasional artifacts

Mass Effect 2

  • Improved lighting and shadows in some cinematics
  • Minor visual, rendering, and VFX improvements on some levels
  • Resolved minor text issues with achievements

Mass Effect 3

  • Fixed an issue where kills for achievements/trophies weren’t tracking correctly
The update is reportedly 11GB on PlayStation and is out now. Anyone have any issues hammering rogue aliens to death 100 times? Let us know in the comments!

Hey, I'm Kes! I'm a Staff Writer, and I've been here since 2021. What do I like? The Outer Wilds is top notch. The Witcher 3 blew my mind over the course of five years completing it. I want Burnout back — I really miss crunching mechanical wonders into walls to the sound of Guns N' Roses. Cool, now we are acquainted, I'll see you around.
