So, I was going down a lab subway and raiding every lab I came across when I stumbled upon a finale room with a little gem of an item, the Phase Immersion Suit. Now, seeing as it’s a finale reward and I had to battle my way through warping Hounds of Tindalos to get it and the 5-point anchor that came with it, I figured it would be one hell of a piece of gear and, looking at its stats and description, I figured I was correct.
The environmental resistances are over the top, the full suite of gadgetry and integral night vision are pretty nice, too, but there’s just one little problem.
It doesn’t work.
It’s strange that something described as a “suit” covers only the torso slot, but I figured there was supposed to be some plutonium-powered force field or something like that. I figured it would actually do what it says it does and regulate my temperature/protect my mind so that I could finally clear the mi-go scout towers with my high-frequency blade and a bunch of moxie. I tried, and it did literally none of that. The heat still shot into the stratosphere and the dazing screeches still wrecked my shit. I haven’t had the opportunity to test it against an Amigara Horror yet, so I have no clue if the purported mind-control defense works against that.
What’s the deal with this item? What on earth is its purpose, for what is it actually useful? For that matter, what does the 5-point harness do? Is it a wearable grappling hook, or does it have some other extra-dimensional purpose like the flavor text on the suit and the notes around the area suggest it should?
