EA has revealed that players are most likely to lose Mordin during Mass Effect 2's last mission, with Tali, Jack, and Zaeed all sharing second place.
The iconic Suicide Mission is a fan favourite because of the incredibly high stakes. It's possible to lose everyone in your squad – including Commander Shepard themselves. And yet, it's possible to keep everyone alive while storming the Collector Base if you play carefully and never rush to the finale. Despite this, some squad members are dying more often than others, as illustrated by the new official statistics.
According to 2021: Year In Gaming, which explains how the global community played Legendary Edition, Garrus Vakarian is the luckiest in Shepard's squad, as he stays alive in 98 percent of playthroughs. It's even more surprising considering the recent revelation that 15 percent of players haven't recruited the loyal turian at all in the first game.
Grunt, Jacob Taylor, and Miranda Lawson all follow Garrus as the toughest members to withstand the Collectors. Everyone in this group is an experienced fighter — and some even artificially perfected — so it's not that surprising. Also, Jacob and Miranda are the first to join Shepard in Mass Effect 2, thus most players probably do their loyal missions at the earliest stages of the journey.
Now, to the unluckiest of them all. I'm sorry, Mordin Solus. The salarian professor is probably one of the most interesting characters of BioWare's trilogy — and one of the hardest to keep alive both in the second and the third entry. 90 percent of players save Mordin during the Suicide Mission: with the best way to ensure that being to send Mordin right away back to Normandy with the rest of the saved crew. If the salarian is forced to stay on the base, he has a very high chance of dying in action, regardless of his loyalty.
Tali'Zorah vas Normandy nar Rayya, Subject "Jack" Zero, and Zaeed Massani all share a second place to end up in a coffin during the final mission. It's hard to guess why, as at least Zaeed is an experienced and tough veteran mercenary, who survives a shot in the head before. Perhaps fate only gives you one chance.
