Dead Space Wiki

The Advanced Unitologist RIG, also called the Tank Suit, is suit that can be worn by Isaac Clarke in Dead Space (2008). It is only available through purchasing the Tank Pack Downloadable Content. The Tank Suit has a 60% damage resistance rating, far more than any other available suit. Like all of the DLC suits, it has the full 25 inventory slots. The suit has gray armor plating with Marker Symbols etched onto it and has a black undersuit. The helmet's visor glows a dim white light.

Downloadable Content[]

The Tank Pack was released as a downloadable content on November 13, 2008. It was available for $4.00/320 MS Points. It included an upgraded Level 5 RIG along with the three upgraded weapons.


  • Dead Space 2 has its own version called the Zealot RIG, Dead Space 3 has another version known as the Witness Suit, and Dead Space (2023) has the Sanctified Suit.
  • The Tank Suit includes the versions of the Flamethrower, Line Gun and Force Gun that deal more damage than the default variants. These versions each have Unitology writing on their skins.
  • A non-upgraded Tank Suit on Impossible mode equals a non-upgraded Level 3 Suit on Medium mode in terms of protection.
  • This RIG was awarded to Unitologists who contributed over 400k Credits to the Church.
  • This along with the Level 3 Suit was one of the three Dead Space (2008) figures available from NECA.[1] However, rather than being a Level 5 Suit, it was a Level 3 RIG.[2] It included a Plasma Cutter done in the same "Tank" designs as the armor. The figure was an SDCC exclusive, and included glowing lights.
  • This was the only DLC suit in Dead Space (2008) that did not have a Plasma Cutter reskin.
  • Like the other DLC suits, it is not available for the PC.
