Special Shield Effects[]

Warning. Containment failure.– Provides immunity to radiation damage. Constantly deals radiation damage to nearby enemies. Sometimes spawns with an amp effect. Greatly reduced capacity.

Usage & Description[]

The Red Suit is a niche item that provides the unique effect of being immune to radiation damage of all types. This includes radiation weapons, splash damage, and damage over time. The DoT effect can still occur, enabling the use of Elemental Projector artifacts to further increase radiation damage.

Despite its potential use in a radiation build, the Red Suit is marred by poor stats, mismatched effects, and functionality issues. This makes it largely unusable for anything outside of Normal mode or lower Mayhem levels.


  • The Red Suit's radiation aura will still be present when the shield is depleted.
  • Bonus elemental damage from anointments or skills such as Moze's Fire in the Skag Den will still damage the Red Suit.
  • The Red Suit's ability can neutralize the self-damage from the Pestilence's weapon break effect, granting a massive damage boost with the radiation element while using the Elemental Projector class mod.
  • Although the Red Suit grants invulnerability to radiation damage over time, shield regeneration will still be stopped while suffering from the effect.

Is a red suit appropriate? ›

Since it can work great for formal occasions, the red suit is also perfect for casual events. In terms of casual, it is a suitable choice for the modern gentleman going out for a drink during the day or night, or even as a daily outfit for meetings around the town. The casual tone here does not mean low-key.

What colors go well with a red suit? ›

Complementary colors that go well with red clothes include black, gray, brown, blue, yellow, and green. However, you need to play with fabrics, prints, and color tones to avoid looking over the top. A pop of yellow, powdery blue denim, green corduroy, plaid skirts, and gray layers on red can work nicely together.

What do you wear under a red suit? ›

If you want to bring the red suit into the work place, try wearing a white shirt underneath it. This makes the all-red look much more approachable. And don't limit yourself to a cotton shirt. A chiffon or silk white shirt would also look amazing and work-appropriate!
