Will the character armor upgrades be visible? I noticed in the trailer that Red hood had different guns in the first half and second half of the gameplay walkthrough. Will it be the same for armor? Pick it up through combat drops, equip it and it changes our look?
Lots of mini-questions so here we go: When you get a suit or a blueprint it has a visual style, a colorway, and stats. Weapons have a visual style and stats. For each suit you wear, additionally,you can customize mask, logo, gloves, and footwear. There’s a lot of custo for each suit, and there are a lot of different styles for guns, tonfas, batarangs, sticks.... Generally the visuals get more badass at the higher tiers, but each tier has a variety of suit styles. You can equip any gear in your inventory whenever you want, but for getting new gear, you return to the Belfry. The workbench in the Belfry is connected to a 3D printer and so long as you have materials, you can craft any blueprint youfind. Materials drop from activity rewards, supply chests, and defeated enemies.
You can equip mod chips (think gems in other games) at any time, if you find them mid-mission.
For extra visual customization: you also obtain extra colorways (override the colors of a suit) and transmogs (override the whole visual look of a suit). As you play you also find transmogs for suit styles you craft often, so if for some reason you want to override the look of your ultra-awesome Legendary-tier suit with the visual of the suit from the start of the game, you can do that. This gives you some flexibility if your favorite gear stats-wise doesn’t have the look you wantand it is all earned in-game.
