I have been playing a lot of multiplayer on Mass Effect 3 and I have trouble seeing the light blue crosshairs when I am not zoomed in. Since aiming is difficult this way, I waste a lot of ammo shooting next to the monsters.

I know how to edit the coalesced.bin—my problem is I am not that familiar with doing it, where to look, or if this is even possible to change.

All I want to do is change the color of my crosshairs so I can see where I am aiming.

  • I was thinking this same thing earlier today.

You risk getting banned if you use mods in multiplayer. Single-player mods are okay.

If you want to mod, you can only edit the size of the crosshairs, not the color. The details are on the Mass Effect Wikia, but there is a great coalesced.bin tutorial on this very site.

You have to tweak each weapon's crosshairs individually:

To select a weapon, go to bioweapon.ini/sfxgamecontent/sfxweapon and pick the weapon type and then individual weapon (e.g., sfxweapon => assultrifle => avenger).


maxzoomcrosshairrange = (x= , Y= ) minzoomcrosshairrange = (x= , Y= )

Cross-hairs DO NOT scale with accuracy. It is up to you to fix the cross hair size to fit the accuracy that you have modded.1

  • Yeah, I am aware of how to change the size but thats not going to help me aim with my M8. And yeah I am well aware of the whole banning thing, yet theres 110 people with higher N7 ranking than me (currently at 2109). Commented Apr 19, 2012 at 5:31
  • So you are assuming anybody who has a higher rank than you is a cheater?

  • No, but seeing I can get 20 levels a match, so 30 points in 14-20 minutes. And to stay in the top 10 for North America you need to get about 300 levels a day. Commented Apr 19, 2012 at 12:25

Update: It appears that they have now written an advanced guide with a lot more information: http://me3tweaks.blogspot.com/2013/01/mass-effect-3-advanced-multiplayer.html

I know this is old, but I was looking for some tutorials on Coalesced and found this post, and I figured when people came here to find info on it it would be useful if they found some.

I found a tutorial on a blog http://me3tweaks.blogspot.com/

Apparently whoever owns it likes using it in multiplayer, but the first post (bottommost) has a mini guide on enemies and stuff. It looks like it probably applies to single player too. It looks like they are making a mod manager too. Also it doesn't seem like you can change the crosshair colors.
