Infinite Paragon and Renegade points cheat for Mass Effect 2


Infinite Paragon and Renegade points

In the beginning of the game when Shepard must escape the station he revived from. After the Commander heals Wilson and uses Overload on the explosive crates, while heading for the exit, Jacob interrupts to explain that Cerberus funded the Lazarus project. During the conversation you may choose "That sounds familiar..." and "I'll never work for Cerberus!" for Paragon points; or "You lied to me." and "What are you after?" for Renegade points. After the conversation, go inbetween the two box the explosive crates were, then save. Load that save file up and Shepard should be at the same spot. As you approach the exit, the conversation will start up again and can be repeated. The points do carry over to the saved files so this can be done to fill both Paragon and Renegade meters. However the saving and loading process can take up time and, because Shepard receives only 4 points for the conversation, can take up a lot of saves (500 saves total with a ME2 import Shepard with 4 ranks in class specialist, with 250 saves for each meter). Also, the player is unable to see their Paragon/Renegade meter until the leave the station (just before they see the Illusive Man). Nevertheless, it leaves the player the freedom to choose without worrying about Paragon/Renegade points because it takes place early in the game. It's recommended not to fill all the way up but about 4/5 (80%) of the way and fill the rest up during the game. Because you can't see the Paragon/Renegade meter, it is also recommended for the player to first choose only the Renegade option so that Shepard's scars gets worse as you repeat it. This allows you to guess how many Renegade points Shepard has without having to advance to the first meeting with the Illusive Man, which is the point at which the Paragon/Renegade meters become viewable.

250 is about right if all you want is one or the other. ME2 was a stickler for rep later in the game when it can cost you loyalty between crew members. I suggest loading up some good tunes and just killing 2 hours to do this --it will save you so much grief later in your playthrough.

A long but good way to go, hate not having the skills to interact (and yes doing this my second time around finished 1st with 2/3r para 1/3 renagade and I really tried) harder than original Mass Effect version.
