IMO the scorpion is wicked its worth the D/L. The best suite is the military suit but you dont get it until you beat the game and it costs allot I forget the exact amount sorry. I was glad I got the scorpion suite.

here you go

I wish the 360 had gotten the Obsidian suit though. Black is much cooler:Bounce:

It's got the same stats as the ELite suit, but looks much cooler. It's a level 5 suit you can buy from a shop for ZERO credits, saving you the time and money of upgrading level by level, which makes the Impossible playthrough much, much easier. I thought it was worth it.

Scorp is definately worth the 200 MS points (especially if you play at the higher difficulty levels where you start with nothing). I couldn't imagine running through Impossible without it...

Lvl 6 suit is 95,000 credits and is only available AFTER you beat the game at that level of difficulty.

The free Elite suit has 10% armor
and the Scorpion suit has 25% armor
If your planning on playing Impossible it would be a good idea to have it

I like the extra slots in the suit...

How do you know how much armor it offers?

I traded up from the Elite Suit to the Scorpion one on Chapter 7, just so I could change things up a little halfway through the game.

To find out read page 3 of the manual
if your asking me I read it somewhere else and I might be wrong, but you have both so if you wouldn't mind, could you check the armor percentages?

I downloaded the free Elite Suit but haven't played the game yet.

How do you get the upgraded suit achievement if you have the Elite Suit (which says it is already Level 5? Idk the highest level).

You upgrade the "Rig" that's attached to the suit, not the suit itself
Your Rig is what manages your Health and Oxygen

I got the scorpion suit because I enjoyed the game so much and I knew I'd be playing it multiple times I figured having an extra cool looking suit would be worth the 200 points :P

Your Rig is what manages your Health, Stasis, and Kinesis

Actually the Rig manages your health and oxygen levels. Stasis and Kinesis are separate.

Actually that is incorrect. The level 6 suit (Military) costs 99,000 credits. The Elite and Scorpion suits are the ones that are free and they are only level 5.

ironic that the free suit in the game actually costs MS points.

I played the game through on Hard, one gun in the elite suit. Only way to go.

I played through Impossible with the free DLC 'Elite' suit and had absolutely no problems. Impossible is a sad excuse for a hardest difficulty.

Nice, I like the look of that suit, I'll have to pick it up. I didn't realize it had a better armor rating than the other DLC suit (the free one). I haven't played through Impossible yet and this will be a nice change of scenery.

Also Armor % are shown under one of the tab screens. Prob inventory I'm thinking.

I have a question. If I were to download the scorpion suit and use it halfway through my first play through, will I be able to use it again when I go through on impossible? Will anything be affected (achievements)?

It seems as though it would be much easier to go through impossible with a level 5 suit (with extra armor) instead of a level 1. haha

Anyone have pics of the Elite suit?

Also, what is the best suit to use?

Scorpion
Elite
Commando (once you beat the game)

Once I read this thread, I decided to go out and get the Scorpion suit and lets just say it is worthwhile and have nearly finished the game on hard in 8hours.If its your 1st go through the game I recommend getting it because otherwise just go for the Commando suit 2nd time through.

Scorpion
Elite
Commando (once you beat the game)

The best suit is the Military Suit you get once you beat the game
It has full Inventory and 30% Armor
It does not get any better than that
From weakest to strongest (Armor)

Level 1 Suit (5% Armor)
Level 2 Suit (10% Armor)
Elite Suit/PS3 Suit (10% Armor)
Level 3 Suit (15% Armor)
Level 4 Suit (20% Armor)
Level 5 Suit (25% Armor)
Scorpion Suit (25% Armor)
Military Suit (30% Armor)

All three DLC suits have max inventory

There's always one. Well if it's too easy suppose you can always go back to doing 'Mile High Club' blindfolded with one hand, or maybe even Ninja Gaiden 2 on 'Master Ninja' without having the TV turned on.

UK Mylo, I did them both, twice! With my house on fire. Oh and whether or not the scorpian suit is worth it via stats or inventory, I bought it just because it was red, had red lights, and it kind of reminds me of Soviet Engineers (red alert).

If you pre orderd dead space from game they send you an email with a redeem code to get the scorpion suit for free.

if you can get if for free go for it, as for if it is worth the 200 mp i'm going to have to say no, you should go through the game the first time with the normal armors for the fullest experience in my opinion, after that you get the level 6 military armor(which despite being 99k credits that's nothing after you beat the game, i had 300k after going through my first time with only the plasma cutter for the one gun achievement) and there's a way to glitch it so the 3rd time when you start a new game on impossible you can start out wearing the military armor.

On a side note it does look pretty sweet, to bad you can't switch armors throughout the game(would be fun to try doing a new game + with the level 1 armor the whole time)

I thought you could? I mean, you can, I swapped between elite ans scorpion a few times at the shop
