If you haven’t noticed by now, Bethesda opted for a NASA-punk aesthetic when it came to the overall feel of Starfield. You see it the most in spaceships and spacesuits, most of which are chunky. For some, the style is perfect. Others, unfortunately, wish for sleeker armor overall. If you fall into the former, then good for you! You’ll want this spacesuit! Here is how to get the Mercury Spacesuit in Starfield!

To get the Mercury Spacesuit in Starfield, you must first progress through the main story until you reach “Unearthed,” then enter the NASA Launch Facility on Earth in the Sol Star System. Inside, as you push through the facility, you will inevitably stumble upon a piece of history—the Mercury Spacesuit—tucked behind a glass display case. You must pick the case open, then take the spacesuit, but don’t worry, it’s not stealing. There’s no one left on Earth to come for you.

When you open the case, you’ll receive the entire set: Mercury Spacesuit, Mercury Space Helmet, and Mercury Pack.
