Mass Effect 2 Armor

ShepardN7Standard.jpg

Armor is a protective casing utilized by many different species to protect specific body parts from injury. There are specific armors for each species; Turian Krogan, Quarian Human and Asari. Armor can be customised with upgrades to give better shields or health regeneration, improve cooldown times for tech abilities, or protect against melee attacks depending on individual preference.

Each set of armor has a kinetic barrier generator and an onboard computer that can give readouts on the environment, connect with terminals to download data, and check local wildlife against the xenobiology database. This computer is also what gives Shepard readouts on the squad's current health and shield status, and helps differentiate between friends and foes during combat.
