The Three Exceptional and Unique Spacesuits in Starfield:

  1. The Mantis Spacesuit:

    • To become a spacefaring counterpart of Batman, seize the opportunity during the main story quest "The Old Neighborhood." You'll come across a slate on one of the Spacers, guiding you to a hidden lair on a remote moon.
    • Prepare yourself for a series of trials that will test your worthiness to assume the role of "The Mantis." Successful completion will reward you with The Mantis spacesuit and other valuable items.
    • With its sleek aesthetics, formidable defenses, and substantial bonus to carry capacity, The Mantis spacesuit is a prized possession. Obtaining it early in the game can be a game-changer, empowering you to breeze through the initial missions with ease.
  2. The Mark One Spacesuit:

    • Similar to Fallout 4's Cryolator, the Mark One spacesuit is an incredibly potent late-game technology piece. It tantalizingly dangles in front of you within the first hour of gameplay, enticing you to level up your lockpicking skill.
    • You can employ an exploit to acquire it as soon as you lay eyes on it. The Mark One is a prototype of the iconic Constellation spacesuit, paradoxically more powerful than its later version.
    • By cracking a Master-level lock or using a clever cursor alignment technique on the display case, you can effortlessly claim this formidable piece of equipment. It offers both prestige and protection.
  3. Starborn Spacesuits:

    • The Starborn, despite their occasional resemblance to rejected Destiny 2 designs, are renowned for their fashionable attire in the Settled Systems.
    • While obtaining one of their spacesuits is impossible during your initial playthrough, you can have it for yourself by completing the main story and initiating New Game+. In New Game+, the suit is automatically equipped from the moment you wake up in Vectera's orbit.
    • The Starborn spacesuit is a versatile all-in-one combination of a helmet, boost pack, and spacesuit, boasting exceptional stats that compensate for its lack of accessories. What's more, with each new NG+ cycle, the suit receives upgrades in appearance and performance, with ten known variants so far.
