N7 Armor is Commander Shepard's default armor set in Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. This armor is designed to augment tech, biotic and weapons damage as well as provide additional health and shield strength. However, the N7 Armor is also designed to be modular and can be customized with a variety of chestpieces, gauntlets, pauldrons, helmets and leg pieces can be swapped in or out.

Mass Effect 2 Edit

In Mass Effect 2, the N7 Armor is the first armor set made available to the player. It is obtained in the mission Prologue: Awakening, where the N7 Armor worn by Commander Shepard during Prologue: Save Joker and before Prologue: Awakening is the heavy model of Mass Effect. The armor has undergone some minor aesthetic changes, most notably a new helmet, a new right arm with a supplementary shoulder on the right clavicle, and a grainy aspect compared to the smooth aspect of the previous game. Although the armor is modular, until the player obtains additional armor parts, it can only be customized cosmetically rather than functionally.

In Mass Effect 3, the N7 Armor is again the first armor set made available to the player. It is obtained in the mission Priority: Mars. Once more, the new N7 Armor has undergone some minor aesthetic changes, most notably: angled shoulder pieces, a new belt, a new right bracer, and the armor regains the smooth aspect of the armor in Mass Effect compared to the grainy aspect of Mass Effect 2's. Like its Mass Effect 2 counterpart, the armor is still customizable and possesses different attributes, with all N7 pieces giving a health bonus.
