20% Damage Resistance
Stasis Module recharge time is halved
The Advanced Suit was a state-of-the-art suit used by elite combat teams. Like the other suits in Dead Space 2, the thrusters are located on the legs and clavicles and also included a separating, folding helmet. The Schematic of this suit was found in Chapter 11 in a Power Node storage room shortly before Isaac was attacked by Nolan Stross. It offered 25 inventory slots and 20% armor and gave a passive bonus of decreasing the recharge time on your Stasis Module by 50%.
This suit relied on highly classified technology and was intended for elite forces operating in dangerous situations and the harshest of environments. Like all of the other full-body vacuum-rated suits, the Advanced Suit was self-sealing, meaning that it would seal itself if punctured or otherwise damaged in a manner which compromised the wearer's exposure. This allowed the operators to work in the vacuum of space or the other similarly hazardous environments.
The suit cost 40,000 Credits at the Store or 36,000 with the Vintage Suit on. The Advanced Suit had a special feature that halved the Stasis recharge time, further enhancing the lethality of the Advanced Suit. It was the best suit available in the first playthrough of Dead Space 2.
- The Advanced Suit was the last suit that you found in your first playthrough.
- The Advanced Suit was for use in high mobility situations and was most likely made of a stretchable material, explaining the lack of armor around joints.
- The Advanced Suit may be completely foreign to Isaac as he was seen glancing at the arms of the suit and also rolling his shoulders to test it's flexibility.
- In the Dead Space 2 demo, the Advanced Suit featured a passive bonus that gave all weapons a 15% bonus to damage. In the final game, however, the weapon bonus was omitted from this suit and instead added to the Elite Advanced Suit.
- Note on the box cover depicting the Advanced Suit's front helmet, Isaac's eyes are visible through the top eye slit. There was also a Marker Symbol above his left eye.
- Like the Intermediate Engineering Suit in Dead Space and Arctic Survival Suit in Dead Space 3, the Advanced Suit was featured in almost all of the advertisements for Dead Space 2.
- When Isaac stepped out of the Store after purchasing this suit as with the other suits, the shoulder thrusters would lift. The Advanced Suit had three plates that lifted, but only two over Isaac's shoulders would move during Zero-G gameplay. However, the third piece would move occasionally when boosting backwards and turning.
- In Battlefield 3's Multiplayer map, "Epicenter" from the "Aftermath" update, there was an Easter Egg where you could find the Advanced Suit's helmet making breathing sounds in regular intervals.
- The suit was featured in many of the early Dead Space 3 promotional trailers, stills and demo materials. The suit appeared badly worn and damaged. The portions are torn off and the armor was dented, likely from the crash on Tau Volantis. The Advanced Suit was eventually cut from the final game however, being replaced with the EVA Suit.
- The helmet design of the suit saw it's return in Dead Space 3 in the form of the Arctic Survival Suit's helmet and it's variants, albeit with minor changes. The notable rehash points are the face plating of the advanced suit with the back end being that of the Engineering Suit's helm design. The Arctic Survival Suit's helmet also featured a cloth face mask instead of a metallic one like the Advanced Suit.
- Despite being of the most streamlined suit in the Dead Space universe this far, the Advanced Suit had the bulkiest holoprojector. Even when flipped up, it still protruded until just before Isaac's chin ended. The projector's display would also clip through Isaac's arm and face when he equipped a large two-handed weapon such as the Seeker Rifle.
- The Advanced Suit was Isaac's third alternate costume in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
- The Advanced Suit and all of its iterations featured a small rectangular prism with a blue lens in the middle mounted above the faceplate. Judging from what this suit was usually used for, it was most likely a camera.
