Infinite Paragon + Achievement
When you reach the Hercules System in the Attican Beta Cluster you will receive a mission to recover a "lost data pad" from the planet Eletania. Once you have found the data pad on one of the roaming local species(called a "monkey" in the game) in the mine you will be awarded approximatly 6+ paragon, save the game immediately. Once done, load the saved game and you should be able to continue to click on this monkey infinite amounts of times... I ran up my Paragon to 450+ points and, of course, received the achievement.
On the planet Noveria, head to the hotel bar and look for a Turian named Lorik Quinn. Accept his quest to steal the data from his office. Once you get the data, the receptionist will ask you to get Quinn to testify. Tell her you'll do it, and then go talk to Quinn. From here:
1) Tell Quinn that he should testify (top left option).
2) When he refuses, select the Charm option (top left) for Paragon points or the Intimidate (bottom left) for Renegade points and end the conversation.
3) Talk to him again, and ask about the Matriarch.
4) When he gets done talking about her, select the "Other questions" option (bottom right).
5) Now, you'll have the option to ask him to testify again (top left). He'll refuse, and you'll be able to use the Charm or Intimidate option again to gain another 24 Paragon or Renegade points.
Repeat steps 3-5 until you have all the Paragon or Renegade points you want.

Infiltrator: Sniper Rifle
Here's a great way to score infinite Credits. Follow the steps below in order to do so...
1) First, fulfill the side quest involving Dr. Michel (from the Med Clinic) and her blackmailer. After the quest is complete, you'll get a discount from all of the goods she sells.
2) Start selling her all of your expensive equipment. Then, travel to the Wards Markets and talk to the merchant named Expat. You can buy all of your stuff back for cheaper than you sold it off.
3) Head back to Dr. Michel and sell off your stuff again. Repeat this process as much as you want for as much profit as you desire.
Head to the freighter on Feros (in the Zhu's Hope Colony). You'll find a computer terminal here that, when decrypted, will alert you to investigate supply shipments that have diverted course in the Voyager Cluster.
Quite simply, if you then save your game, and subsequently reload it, you'll be able to decrypt the computer again for the same information you just got. This is a slow, slow process, but it is a real way to have access to infinite experience points. If you have the patience to do it, give it a go.
Game Completion Duplication
After completing the game, you're able to restart with your character equipped with everything he had in the prior mission, as well as retaining experience, credits and more. However, there's a strange duplication anomaly present that is worth mentioning. If you take a look at your inventory, you'll notice that there are copies of what you're wearing (armor, weapons, modifications) in your inventory and equipped on you. Nifty!
Thresher Maw Tactics
Thresher Maws, which are located mostly on uninhabited or barely-inhabited planets, can be pesky foes. The best way to take care of them, as most people know, is to circle their locations as you pound them with machinegun fire and rockets from the Mako. However, Thresher Maws disappear underground and reappear near your location, and can at times reappear underneath you, instantly killing you (or leaving you dangerously close to death).
A great way to avoid this is to drive the Mako over elevated terrain as you fight these foes. Thresher Maws can only burrow underneath flat terrain, so elevated terrain is off limits to them. If you remain on elevated terrain as you fight them, they won't be able to respond to your attacks with attacks of their own.
Infinite Experience II
During your first conversation with Liara, you gain experience when you're done speaking with her. If you reload your save after the conversation, you can actually speak to her again and get that experience one more time, over and over again. Depending on where you are in the game, this conversation is worth about a thousand experience points, so it's quite a lucrative conversation to partake in over and over again.
Wear Any Piece of Armor
Armor in Mass Effect is created for specific types of creatures and classes. However, there's a way around that so that you can get any character to wear any piece of armor. To do it, try the following technique below.
1) Head to the equipment menu and head to the character you want to re-equip, finding the piece of armor you want him or her to wear regardless of the character's race or class and regardless of the armor type.
2) Including the piece of armor you want to equip, count down the pieces of armor to the bottom of the inventory list.
3) On any piece of armor, click the upgrade option. On any upgrade, opt to turn it into Omni Gel and then quickly opt out. This should return you back to the upgrades menu. Count down from the bottom of that list the number that you earlier acquired when you counted down on the armor list. Now click on that upgrade and transfer the upgrades by hitting yes.
If done properly, you should now be equipped with the desired piece of armor regardless of type.
If you want to have an easier time shooting and killing fast-moving enemies such as Geth Hoppers, Geth Drones, and the like, try the following. Open up the command wheel when engaging them in combat. This will freeze the game, but you'll still be able to aim your gun at foes all the while. Aim at the fast-moving enemy and then get out of the command wheel. This will score you direct hit after (admittedly cheap) direct hit!
Have ANY character equip ANY armor even without training
Potential of Glitch: You could have Kaiden (normaly a light armor only character) Wearing Krogan Heavy Armor!!!! Preparation: 1) First, you have to have the armor you want to equip in your inventory... 2) Then make sure that you have more armor upgrades(ex: Combat Exoskeleton IX) than armors. 3) Count, from the bottom of the armor list, up until you have highlighted the armor you want to equip. Remember that number. 4) Press " X " to go to the upgrades then.... Here is where the glitch is performed... 5) This part must be executed very fast, almost instantly, but not quite... Press and HOLD " Y " then hit " A " in that order. DO NOT press them simultaneously. Normally this would turn the upgrade into Omni-Gel, but since you HELD DOWN THE " Y " BUTTON, and tapped " A " very quickly... the game glitches!! 6) If done correctly... you will here the salvage sound, then a Prompt Screen pops up asking "Are sure you want to reduce to Omni-Gel..." Press " B " so you DO NOT salvage your upgrade. 7) You should see a lot of armor upgrades with duplicated info. (info located just to the left of item) 8) Once again go to the bottom and count up to the number you found earlier... 9) Press " A " to equip and enjoy!!!!!
