Reapers are highly advanced technologically compared to other races in ''Mass Effect''.  Their kinetic barriers are more powerful than those of other ''Mass Effect'' races, and they also seem to have a high recharge rate. Their weapons are also an order of magnitude more powerful than those of the other races. It takes at least four [[turian]] [[dreadnought]]s to have a chance of significantly damaging a Reaper, and there are hundreds, possibly thousands, of Reapers. Creating a new Reaper is, however, a prolonged process -- essentially, a whole organic species must be harvested and embodied in a Reaper.

Reaper technology allows them to manipulate the biology of other species, creating armies of mutated slaves collectively known as [[husk]]s. The abilities of husks vary depending on the species used to create them. Husks can be rapidly produced in large numbers wherever Reapers have established a presence.

Reapers do not seem to require supply lines. They typically destroy fuel and ammunition depots in systems where they gain control, and they only use transports for moving husks from one theatre of operations to another.
