The spacesuit is a piece of clothing which is added to Fallout 3 in the Mothership Zeta add-on.


It provides a Damage Resistance of 1 and has very high item health (10 million HP). Radiation suits and advanced radiation suits can be used to repair it. This suit will not protect from radiation sources. While completing the quest Not of This World, the player character will unfreeze people from different time periods. One of them, Colonel Hartigan, died allowing one to loot his spacesuit. It will be located in the pod to the far right.


  • During the spacewalk, the player character is unable to use their Pip-Boy, as it is inside the spacesuit's sleeve. However, the Pip-Boy (and fingerless glove) are still visible in third person view.
  • If the depressurization is activated without the suit on, the player character's head explodes. The game will warn them if they do not have the spacesuit equipped prior to the depressurization.
  • If the Lone Wanderer takes off the spacesuit during the spacewalk, this death will result in positive or negative Karma based on one's own Karma level (positive for evil characters, negative for good).
  • Like the winterized T-51b power armor from the Operation: Anchorage add-on, the spacesuit has extremely high durability.
  • After returning to the Wasteland, the spacesuit can be given to a companion. Despite the extremely low damage resistance, non-player characters like Charon and Star Paladin Cross will wear the spacesuit instead of their default armor or other pieces of armor, even power armor. This may be due to its extremely high condition.
  • Although the suit has its own oxygen tanks for spacewalks, if it is equipped before swimming, one will still have the normal amount of oxygen, as well as the possibility of drowning.
  • After completion of the Mothership Zeta questline, this suit is no longer a quest item, and weighs 5 pounds. However, if the player character takes the suit from Hartigan before he falls down and technically dies, the suit will remain weightless indefinitely.
  • Cut content At one point during development, the suit was to consist of two separate pieces: a bodysuit and a helmet. Though not included in the final release, the helmet remains in the add-on's resources and can be obtained using console commands.
