ME3 Armor Customization

In Mass Effect 3, Commander Shepard's armor can be customized by swapping out pieces of the default N7 Armor for pieces purchased from merchants, or made available as downloadable content, by using the armor locker aboard the Normandy SR-2. Not just augmenting the armor's physical appearance, these pieces also have varying effects on various aspects of Shepard's combat effectiveness. Additionally, the player can further customize the armor's appearance by changing its color, reflectiveness, applying a pattern, applying two different tints, and adjusting the color of any lights.

In addition to the many available options for Shepard's armor, the Commander can choose from a selection of casual outfits to wear when armor is not required.
