Heleus Defender Armor is an armor set consisting of two pieces.


This hardsuit is the ultimate product of Initiative research into Heleus Cluster species. Remnant power sources supply angaran hardware in a frame made possible by kett bio-enhancements and Pathfinder implants. This armor is unequivocally a combat suit, intended for the defense of Initiative and angaran colonies. It is also, perhaps, the future of Heleus Cluster technology.

The full-body armor functions as a chest piece during development. In addition to the seventeen augmentations available for any armor component, it can be modified during development with one of seven augmentations designed specifically for chest armor. Though it covers the arms and legs, it does not accommodate augmentations for arms or legs armor.

The Heleus Defender Helmet I, II, III, IV, and V when deconstructed return the incorrect resource type and quantity of Element Zero instead of Remnant Core.

Depending upon the choice of twin, the full-body piece of this set will change in appearance slightly during gameplay. The female version is slightly smaller and more feminine in nature. The male version is slightly larger and more muscular in nature. There is no difference in armor performance based on gender.

When deconstructing items that use remnant core during development, only a single item out of twenty total items - Heleus Icon Armor X - will return a single unit (1) of remnant core. The remaining nineteen items using this material WILL NOT return remnant core.

There is an issue with blueprints and the Heleus Armor helmet. The mission Epilogue: Home and Away awards a leveled helmet blueprint for mission completion. This blueprint doesn't show up on the Research screen for normal or advanced blueprints as a "blue tick mark" as a researched blueprint. However, it does show up on the Development screen so you can create a level dependent helmet. This reward blueprint will NOT satisfy requirements to have the previous blueprint to unlock higher blueprints if you are trying to research this helmet. Whichever level you have been rewarded, you will have to spend the RD to get the blueprint to show up in Research and/or to unlock the remaining helmets.
