Yeoman Kelly Chambers may not be part of your active playable crew in Mass Effect 2, but most players still quite enjoyed it throughout the campaign. Kelly acts as an assistant commander and keeps forgetful players who have learned who and what needs their attention at the moment.
Unfortunately, Kelly is one of the characters who can die at the end of the game, so players will want to make sure they keep Yeoman alive. After players go to steal the IFF code from an abandoned Reaper, they start a chain of events that put their entire crew at risk.
Players will then have to decide between attacking the collector’s base or trying to stay ready for it. The only way to save Kelly is to head straight to the collector base. Each mission that players complete between abducting a crew and arriving at base means losing another crew member. To make it even more uncomfortable for Kelly, he’s the first person in the mowing block when collectors start working their way through the crew.
If players get to the Collector base as quickly as possible, they can save Kelly, but they will want to make sure they have all the loyalty missions done before they set out to get the IFF code, if they hope to keep their entire crew alive.
