It would be cool to have an equivalent to the Standard Issue Bridges Suit from Death Stranding. It has a large “backpack” that distributed the weight of the cargo evenly across your legs, hips, back and shoulders. It also has attachment points at the hips and shoulders that are rated to carry up to 200 lbs.
While this suit would enable you to haul vast amounts of loot, it would be very restrictive, and you will not be able to wear much more equipment or armor. It also requires you to place cargo in special containers that need to be packed and sealed before loading, making it less practical for casual use.
The uses for this will be fairly niche, being useful for thorough scavenging runs after you’ve cleared out an area, allowing the player to carry hundreds of lbs of loot, but that loot has to be packed into special containers and can’t be accessed without breaking open the container and having to repack it to haul it again. This means if you loot a gun, you won’t be able to use it unless it’s unpacked.
I figure in-game it could be a rare find in industrial buildings and military bases, or be craftable by the player with high enough skill. The containers could be craftable with some tools, a welding torch, and some sheet metal. The suit would need a full workshop with a forge and a variety of tools and materials. It would prevent the player from using any other armor or bags and prevent them from using any vehicles other than bikes and atvs. There would be severe combat penalties, and moving on rough terrain or over obstacles takes much longer.
Anyone think this could be doable in game?
