About this mod

Gradually increases the XP rewards (from kills, missions, etc) while leveling up, so that max level can be reached in a single playthrough.

Permissions and credits
This is a port of my XP Rescale mod for the original Mass Effect game.


  • The amount of XP required to reach any given level has not been modified. Current level and current total XP in a save file will thus always be consistent, with or without the mod.

  • Instead, this mod changes the amount of XP received from killing enemies, completing missions, etc.

  • Up to level 15, there are no differences with vanilla. After level 15, the amount of XP received progressively increases with respect to vanilla, but the difference will mostly be noticeable after level 45-50.

  • This mod works with both Legendary and Classic experience mode, but I would recommend Classic (select in Gameplay options of the game itself). All values given on this page are based on Classic mode.


  • Quick Run. Reaching level 60 roughly corresponds to reaching level 45 in vanilla. This should allow you to reach max level in a quick playthrough, where many side missions are skipped. You will keep leveling up almost as fast as in the very beginning of the game, so this may feel very cheaty. 

  • Casual. Reaching level 60 roughly corresponds to reaching level 53 in vanilla. This version leaves plenty of space for skipping side content.

  • Default. Reaching level 60 roughly corresponds to reaching level 55 in vanilla. Reaching max level requires completing most of the game, but still leaves a pretty comfortable margin for skipping a few things here and there.

  • Hardcore. Reaching level 60 roughly corresponds to reaching level 57 in vanilla. This is only recommended if you want to feel rewarded for grabbing every bit of XP. There is still a margin of error, but you better know what you are doing.

Note that the Casual option used to be the default in my mod for the original game. The new default corresponds to the previously named "Completionist" option, since the Legendary Edition gives by default the +20% XP bonuses that were linked to achievements in the orginal game, and removes the Mako XP penalty.

If you are feeling supportive, you can buy me a few levels
