Powered Armor

Unlike light and heavy armor, powered armor requires its own battery, and comes with a fully charged battery at purchase. Powered armor uses the same type of batteries as other items, including charged weapons, and the battery for a suit of powered armor can be recharged as normal using a generator or recharging station (see page 234), or it can be replaced with a new battery when spent (see Table 7–9: Ammunition for battery pricing).

Innovated by screedreep scam artists, an infiltration suit takes the form of a Medium humanoid or monstrous humanoid, with an Azlanti human being typical. Only Small or smaller creatures can wear and operate an infiltration suit, and when disguising themselves as the person the armor’s modeled after, the wearer reduces the DC modifier to Disguise checks to +1 each to assume a different creature type, size category, and race. An aftermarket modification costing 5% of the item’s price and a day of work can change the armor’s appearance to that of a different humanoid or monstrous humanoid.
Unusually, a creature wearing an infiltration skin can wear an additional suit of armor over the powered armor, in which case they use the better of the two armors’ EAC bonuses, KAC bonuses, and armor upgrade slots. The wearer uses the worse of the armors’ maximum Dexterity, armor check penalty, and speed penalty values.
