The Vintage Suit is a suit obtainable in Dead Space 2. Wearing it provides Isaac with a resistance to 15% damage, 20 inventory slots and a 10% discount for all items in the Store. Despite its bulky appearance, it does not slow Isaac down.


It is an old, antiquated CEC suit, consisting of a bulky brown space suit and a folding utility space helmet, as well as other various equipment, including an oxygen tank on the left shoulder plate, a heads-up display/holographic projector on the sternum, and a calculator on the left sleeve. The suit possesses various other tools necessary for a space walk.

Compared to later models, all of the above are noticeably outdated; for example, rather than being integrated inside of the suit, the oxygen tank is clearly visible on the outside.



The schematic can be found in a Power Node locked room early on in Chapter 8. If not picked up here it will be added to the store automatically in a Chapter 12. It can be purchased for 40,000 credits.


  • The suit's appearance is based partly on present-day EVA space suits and partly on old-fashioned deep diving suits. Isaac is wearing an under-armor jumpsuit covering his entire body, which is used to protect soft tissue from moving parts inside the suit and the heat of working in it under stressful situations, such as during EVA.
  • Unlike other suits in Dead Space 2, the Vintage Suit only has thrusters on the feet, not the scapulars. This does not affect mobility in Zero-G, however.
  • In the Transport Hub, where the player meets up with Ellie and Stross, a Vintage Suit can be found on display behind a glass window at the CEC store, and that place is in fact where the Schematic for the Elite Vintage Suit can be found in New Game+.
  • This is the only suit that has a head cover going over Isaac's head, also known as a "Snoopy Cap". The helmet of the Vintage Suit also unfolds from behind before expanding to fully cover Isaac's head, unlike other suits which have a face-mask helmet design.
  • The chest-mounted display of the Vintage Suit is similar to that of the Arctic Survival Suit from Dead Space 3, having a screen held up by standoffs rather than being projected as a hologram. This could mean that both of these suits were made at around the same time as one another.
  • The Vintage Suit is the only suit in Dead Space 2 to have Isaac's face model under the helmet.
