In the mission Priority: Earth, after landing in London near the crash site, I push and get to the second floor of the destroyed building on which the wreckage is located but I can't find any M-920 Cain as the objective marker shows, the only thing lying around in there is a MedKit.

I tried reloading the game quite a few times, restarted the mission but to no good end.


After suffering for a while I figured out a rather crude solution to the problem, editing the Coalesced.bin file to fix a hotkey to spawn the weapon.

It worked perfectly.

This is how you do it:

I’ve been stuck for quite some time for this bug, barring me from finishing Mass Effect 3. Then I remembered about the trick which I used to access all weapons, DLC and/or otherwise, by editing the Coalesced.bin file which actually is a compiled collection of multiple INI files.

What you’ll require is Wenchy’s Coalesced Editor, which is way better than that of Gibbed (who is good for the savegame editor though …) and a functional brain with a sane mind.

If you seem to have the above stated at your disposal then please proceed to the next steps by first backing up your original Coalesced.bin file.

Open the Coalesced Editor and then proceed to opening the Coalesced.bin file which is located in :\\BIOGame\CookedPCConsole.

Then, from the left treelike menu, choose “bioinput.ini”, then “sfxgame”after that “sfxgamemodedefault”. The following screenshot would be helpful for you to identify the entries which are boxed in red for your convenience.

In the right-hand side you’ll see the list from the Bindings section which shows how the key-bindings are defined for the game controls.

In the end of the list add the following line: ( Name=”F12″, Command=”giveitem self Cain” )

Save the changes in the Coalesced.bin file and start the game.

Then while in game, press F12 to access the M-920 Cain to take down the Hades Cannon and move on to your next objective!

  • If the link disappears, does this still answer the question? Unless you can uneqivocally say yes to that, you need to summarize the information. – Frank Mar 21 '16 at 21:29
  • What you do is up to you. I feel this doesn't hit our quality standards. – Frank Jun 14 '16 at 0:38
  • @Frank my apologies for being so rude and stupid. I hope this helps! Had to run in a problem to realize how right you were. Cheers. – samedi_ishmael_medivh Aug 10 '17 at 20:15
