Armor Upgrades

A creature can personalize armor by purchasing and installing armor upgrades, described below, which add bonuses or customized abilities to armor. Some individuals keep a collection of upgrades at hand, swapping them out as needed (requiring 10 minutes to replace the unit and resecure all connections). Explanations of entries for upgrades’ statistics follow.

Vacuum Rappeler

Source Starfinder #46: The Perfect Storm pg. 44
Item Level 1; Price 120
Slots 1; Armor Type Any; Bulk
By outfitting your armor with magnetized, short-range grapplers that are linked to its environmental sensors, this upgrade serves as an extra protection against explosive decompression. If you fail a Reflex saving throw against forced movement in space (for instance, being pulled through a hole punched in a starship’s hull or a malfunctioning airlock), this armor upgrade engages immediately after you are moved 10 feet, grappling a nearby solid surface with a length of titanium alloy cable line and stopping your movement. Unfortunately, the vacuum rappeler doesn’t prevent falls or forced movement in areas with an atmosphere. The upgrade holds a total of 40 feet of line, which can be retracted into the upgrade with 10 minutes of work.
