This heavy armor combines reinforced ADVENT plating with a powered exoskeleton, offering superior protection and damage resistance coupled with a wrist-mounted rocket launcher. With further study we could unlock additional heavy weapon options for this suit.
The E.X.O Suit is typically the first heavy armor the player obtains. It provides an extra health and armor point over the Predator Armor, and can mount a single Heavy Weapon, however it does not provide an extra slot for utilities. It can be considered a direct upgrade over the Predator Armor if one of the utility slots used by the soldier is a Frag Grenade; the default Rocket Launcher does more damage and grants the soldier extra durability.
The E.X.O. Suit is best equipped on units that use heavy ordinance or are typically under fire, like Grenadiers or Rangers.
