When you’re exploring the wide world of Starfield, you’re likely to come across a ton of different pieces of gear that stand out to you. Take the Mantis armor, for example, which is earned while completing the Mantis side mission. One piece of gear looks awesome, though how you get it can be a mystery. Here’s how to get the Hunter armor in Starfield.

Where to Find the Hunter’s Spacesuit in Starfield

To get the Hunter’s armor in Starfield, you will need to enter New Game Plus for the 10th time. In other words, you will need to complete your first playthrough of Starfield, then enter and complete New Game Plus nine different times. Once you begin your 10th New Game Plus run (or the 11th run overall), you will automatically have the Hunter’s armor equipped. In the game, it is known as the Starborn Spacesuit Venator.

Seeing how far you need to be in Starfield to get the armor, it’s naturally a great set of gear. It features the following stats:

  • PHYS: 246
  • ENGY: 246
  • EM: 246
  • Thermal: 50
  • Corrosive: 50
  • Airborne: 50
  • Radiation: 50

Unlike a surprising amount of the other Starborn armor sets, the Starborn Spacesuit Venator comes with the following three perks:

  • Technician: -15% damage from Robot enemies.
  • Resource Hauler: Resources weigh 25% less.
  • Assisted Carry: Drain 75% less O2 when running while encumbered.

Is the Hunter’s Armor Worth Getting in Starfield?

Like just about every other piece of gear you get for going into Starfield’s New Game Plus, it’s not worth it unless you’re planning on completing the game that many times. I’m not sure why 99.99% of you would do that, but it’s an option if you’re looking to get more than your money’s worth. It’s also a fair reward, considering it’s one of the best suits in the game.

Can You Get the Hunter’s Weapon As Well?


The following contains spoilers for the end of Starfield.

It is also possible to get the Hunter’s weapon in Starfield. To do so, you’ll either want to side with the Emissary or side with neither person before getting the final artifacts. Then, you’ll want to ensure that you don’t persuade and kill the Hunter instead. When looting his corpse, you’ll receive the Unmitigated Violence, a variant of the Orion Laser Assault Rifle.
