Why did I Choose Gran-Gran’s Spacesuit?

Gran-Gran’s armor set, comprising a remarkable space helmet and spacesuit, offers exceptional protection and utility.

Players must opt for the Kid Stuff trait during character creation to embark on the journey to claim Gran-Gran’s Armor.

  • Select the “Kid Stuff” trait during character creation to begin your journey toward obtaining Gran-Gran’s Armor.
  • Play through the main storyline until you reach the Lodge in New Atlantis.
  • After your initial visit to the Lodge, you’ll receive messages from your in-game parents encouraging you to visit the Residential District.
  • Head to the Residential District and meet with Dad. He will reward you with exclusive items like Grandpa’s Meatloaf recipe and Sir Malcolm Livingstone’s Pistol.

  • Dad, for instance, bestows players with exclusive items like Grandpa’s Meatloaf recipe and Sir Malcolm Livingstone’s Pistol. However, the best reward is yet to come.
  • After interacting with Dad, you’ll receive a note from Mom expressing her desire to meet you.

For those who prefer a more direct approach, the console command player.additem 001F22BB allows them to add Gran-Gran’s spacesuit to their inventory. I should also warn you that using any Console commands will turn off any achievements earned from that section of the campaign.

  • Exceptional Protection.
  • Exclusive Trait.

  • Trait Limit.
  • Hard to Obtain.

Why did I Choose Monster Costume?

Monster Costume is unique because once you have it, NPCs will take notice of your special outfit and find it rather frightening, adding a humorous touch to your character’s appearance.

Nothing is more unique and fun, in my opinion than going on space adventures dressed like a bug.

  • To permanently add the Monster Costume to your collection, you must complete the “Tourists Go Home” mission three times.
  • After your initial completion, wait for six hours. Dr. Lakota will be ready to assign you the mission again. Repeat the mission for the second time. Then, wait 24 hours before engaging in another conversation with Dr. Lakota to start the mission for the third time.

Why did I Choose Starborn Spacesuit Tenebris?

Its futuristic design, characterized by metallic plating, gives it a distinct sci-fi aesthetic, making it a visually captivating addition to the game’s array of armor sets. I am a big fan of classic Sci-fi, and this suit is perfect for that aesthetic.

It would be best to start the New Game Plus mode within Starfield. This mode allows you to replay the game with enhanced features and challenges.

  • You’ll need to finish the game three times in total. After completing New Game Plus three times, start a new game with a fresh character.
  • Upon initiating this new game for 4th time, you will find the Starborn Spacesuit Tenebris readily available in your character’s inventory. It will be accompanied by the Starborn Guardian IV Spaceship.

You may also access the Starfield console command window and enter the command ‘player.additem 001CBA4D’ to effortlessly acquire this iconic spacesuit.

  • Futuristic Looks.
  • Perfect for Sci-Fi Build.
  • Visual Appeal.

  • New Game Plus Requirement.
  • Limited Gameplay Benefits.

Why did I Choose Starborn Spacesuit Gravitas?

This is a Legendary Armor that is worth more than 74,000 credits.

To obtain the Starborn Spacesuit Gravitas in Starfield, you have two methods to choose from:

Method 1: Defeating the Emissary (Revelation Main Quest)

  • Begin the main quest for Revelation in the game.

  • As part of the quest, you’ll face the formidable Emissary, a challenging opponent.
  • Overcome the Emissary in combat during the quest.

  • After defeating the Emissary, check the loot pile carefully, specifically the bottom part, for the Starborn Spacesuit Gravitas. Be cautious not to loot other items first, which might cause the Armor to disappear.
  • Keep in mind that the availability of the Armor from the Emissary is random and may vary based on your choices earlier in the game.

Method 2: New Game Plus (x5)

  • Start the New Game Plus mode in Starfield.
  • Complete New Game Plus five times, progressively building upon your previous playthroughs.
  • Once you’ve completed New Game Plus five times, you’ll find the Starborn Spacesuit Gravitas in your character’s inventory.

The second method is extremely tedious, and I would instead go through the hassle of Method 1.

  • Acquired from Main Quest.
  • Best Aesthetic Appeal.

  • New Game Plus Requirement.

Mark I Spacesuit

Why did I Choose Mark I Spacesuit?

Among the remarkable, unique armor set in Starfield, the Mark I Spacesuit holds a place of distinction. It’s renowned among players for its exclusivity, requiring the completion of a dangerous mission on the Denebola 1-B moon, which demands both wit and skill.

Lodge's basement

  • First, progress through the main story until you reach the quest called “One Small Step.” Completing this quest will provide you with the Lodge Key. Once you have the Lodge Key, go to the Lodge entryway.
  • You’ll find a basement door beneath the stairs in the Lodge entryway. To open it, you must have a Rank 3 skill level in the Security skill. Ensure you have an adequate supply of Digipicks, as you’ll need them for the next step.

  • Inside the basement, the Mark I Spacesuit is stored behind a master-locked display case on a mannequin.
  • Ordinarily, unlocking this display case would require a high level of lockpicking skill. However, there’s a clever workaround. Switch to first-person mode and position yourself before the slim gap in the door.
  • While in first-person mode, use this gap to interact with the mannequin’s arm. This allows you to obtain the Mark I Spacesuit, Space Helmet, and Pack without triggering any theft consequences.

I was slightly disappointed but also glad to see that, like any Bethesda title, some exploits can be best explained as broken game engines.

The appeal of the Mark I Spacesuit doesn’t stop at its initial design. Players can further enhance its capabilities through a range of potent mods, each customizable to their preferences.

Starborn Spacesuit Locus

Why did I Choose Starborn Spacesuit Locus?

Players have been searching for the elusive Starborn Spacesuit Locus and seeking information about its whereabouts. These sought-after spacesuits provide unique advantages and are highly coveted by players.

  • The primary method to acquire the Starborn Spacesuit Tempus is by repeatedly entering the Unity. This method is considered the legitimate way to obtain exclusive spacesuits.
  • The type or set of Starborn Armor you receive varies based on the number of times you enter Unity. Players have reported obtaining the Locus version of the Starborn Spacesuit after completing either the 3rd Unity entry in their inventory when starting a new game alongside the Starborn Guardian III Spaceship.
  • After the New Game Plus with Sarah, the Starborn Spacesuit Tempus becomes available.

Following these steps and considerations, you can acquire the Starborn Spacesuit Tempus in Starfield and enjoy its benefits for your interstellar adventures. Some players initially speculated that acquiring these suits was random, but further investigation revealed a pattern.

Starborn Spacesuit Locus even comes with a Balanced Boostpack for enhanced mobility. Once unlocked, you can craft the Balanced Boostpack at a Spacesuit Workbench.

  • Most Sought by Players because of stats.
  • Unique Benefits.

  • Random Drop in playthrough.

My Take On Best Armor

Within 30-plus hours of playthrough, I got the Mark 1 Spacesuit. It is the best armor set available in the game for defense and outlook appeal. Even though I would recommend against hoarding loot, I always kept all the unique armor in my inventory. 

I used this armor for every situation. You can also use commands and cheats to get any armor without hassle. I would recommend against it if you care about achievements. Still, if you want to get the feel of some of the armors, you can use cheats but save them in a different save file.
