Suits are standard gear for commanders aboard their ships and on the ground. Different suit models offer different tools and functions. Currently, only the default Flight Suit is available, but three other models will be added in Elite Dangerous: Odyssey.[1][2]

Functions

Protection

All space suits provide breathable air and limited protection from vacuum and extreme environments as long as they are powered. Shields can also be activated to absorb a limited amount of weapons fire, and are a must in combat situations because an unshielded suit is relatively flimsy.

Batteries

Venturing into an especially hot or cold environment, activating shields, or using the suit's built-in flashlight all cause faster suit battery drain. When a suit battery nears exhaustion, it will automatically terminate non-vital processes such as the flashlight to try and extend battery life. When a battery runs dry, the suit will stop producing air and the wearer will suffocate. Suits will not expend power when the wearer is in a normalised enviroment with breathable air.

Suit batteries can be replenished with portable Energy Cells, or by using an Energylink to draw power from a Suit Recharge Socket, which can be found at station Concourses or inside settlements.

Backpack

A space suit's backpack allows the wearer to carry a limited amount of Components and Goods. Each model of suit offers a different amount of carrying capacity, with the Maverick Suit boasting the largest carrying capacity.

Upgrading

Certain Components and Goods can be used to upgrade a suit's resilience and allow more Engineering modifications to be added to it. New suits begin at Grade 1, and can be upgraded to Grade 5.
