Geth Activities (or UNC: Geth Incursions) is an Assignment in Mass Effect. Geth Activities is about eliminating the outposts the Geth have been setting up along the Armstrong Cluster. Assignments are secondary quests in Mass Effect, that are not mandatory to progress the game's story, but provide context and flavor by meeting interesting NPCs of all kind of Races, granting additional experience, and letting the player visit extraordinary and unique planets.
Geth Activities Walkthrough
Once you acquire Geth Activities, you can do the first four planets in any order you like. Antibaar, Casbin and Maji, are outdoors outposts, so you can take them down from the safety of the Mako (Minding the lower experience you get). Rayingri and Solcrum, have a substancial indoor component.
Antibaar, Tereshkova System
Here there is another outpost in the mountains, this time in the north central part of the map. This time there are 6 Geth Rocket Troopers, 3 Geth Snipers and a Geth Colossus. Your radar will be jammed once you get close enough, unless you have high level optics. Once you are done with the initial opposing force, a Geth Dropship will bring reinforcements. This time you are facing 2 Geth Primes, 2 Geth Rocket Troopers and 3 Geth Shock Troopers. The Primes are the greatest threat, so focus on them first and then get the rest of the Enemies. Once you are down, you are ready to leave.
Casbin, Hong System
You can find this outpost to the northeast of your landing position. The easiest way to it is to go up north, and then swing around the mountains to reach it.
The outpost is defended by 3 Geth Snipers and 6 Geth Rocket Troopers. Once you have dealt with them, a Geth Dropship will bring in Geth Shock Troopers. You can decide to attack the dropship, forcing it to retreat or let it drop the Shock Troopers and engage them.
You can also find three Geth Armatures and three Geth Turrets at a post in the mountains marked "Anomalous Signal". It is not part of the Assignment, but it can grant you a good amount of Experience points.
Maji, Vamshi System
A long route into the mountains, will take you past five turrets. It's not mandatory to take them down, but you can always use the extra experience points. You will be usually facing one turret at a time, so if you feel like, you can get down from the Mako and destroy it, then get back up until you reach the next one.
Keep going until you reach a small outpost at the top of the hill. You will find 4 Geth Rocket Troopers and 2 Geth Snipers. Once they are down, a Geth Colossus will join the party. Once you destroy it, that's it for this outpost.
Rayingri, Gagarin System
In Rayingri, the Geth have taken over a research outpost. Once you land, follow the beacons until you eventually reach a facility surrounded by Dragon's Teeth. Enter the facility to realize it is infested with Husks. At the entry chamber, you will find a Weapon locker and a storage locker that requires Easy Decryption, so loot them both and move into the main chamber.
There are 8 Husks here, take them down and loot the med kit on a pillar. As you get near enough to the door leading to the back corridor, 6 Husks will come towards you. Once the last husk is dead, another large Geth force enters the main chamber. This force is compromised of 3 Geth Destroyers, 3 Geth Troopers and 2 Geth Snipers. Deal with them and loot the place. At the right room you can find an unlocked crate and a malfunctioning object. On the left one, there is another malfunctioning object and 3 crates. Leave the facility.
Outside, a Geth Dropship will drop more inorganics for you to fight. 3 Geth Troopers, 2 Geth Rocket Troopers, 1 Geth Shock Trooper and 1 Geth Sniper. The main source of cover is the other side of the facility, so use it wisely, still be aware of Geth attempting to flank you. Once this wave is gone, it's over for this planet and leave.
Solcrum, Grissom System
Once all the previous outposts have been destroyed, after a discussion about the subject with your squadmates, you will be led to the Grissom system. Here the Geth have the main base of operations on Solcrum.
The entrance of the base is guarded by 3 Geth Rocket Troopers and 2 Geth Colossi. Stay on the move to avoid rockets and the missiles. After they are defeated, enter the facility.
The Geth here are stronger than in the previous bases, you will fight 3 Geth Destroyers, 3 Geth Hoppers and a Geth Juggernaut. Use the usual anti-Geth tactics. Lift or Throw against the Geth Hoppers, use Tungsten Rounds, etc.
Once the fight is over, a summary will appear stating a terminal has transmitted a recording of a Quarian lament to the Geth homeworlds. Go into the door at the back of the first floor, and hack the data terminal to obtain Geth data files. You can also find an upgrade kit and a secure crate in this room.
