      There is no point in going for any of the unique heavy armors. Get a normal heavy armor instead and smack a stealth kit on it if the stealth reduction bothers you.

        Hey I found a new unique armor from Peril on Gorgon that hasn't been listed here. The Yellow-Belly Suit found on the top floor of the Synthesis & Manufacture Center, on the 4th floor inside a yellow crate in the control room in the middle

          Just confirmed you need to complete FOUNDATION quest in order to Nightfall Squad Armor&Helmet to appear in Percival's store. Also, of course you need to be with Revering reputation with the Board.

            In my five playthroughs I only managed to get Nightfall Alrmor&Helmet once. Even getting to 100% Approval with the Board is not enough. It seems it's really necessary to do Foundation (exterminate Edgewater) in order to get them. I surely only did that once and it must be the final trigger. So, if you want this very rare armor&helmet you need to send the power to Botanic Lab or convince Reed to step down. Also, you need to play the baddy, of course. These are not exceptional, on the contrary (SugarOps are much better), but they are hard to get, for sure!

              finally got the nightfall armor and helmet; had max rep with the board and destroyed edgewater before it became available to buy from percival. it's level 20 [54 armor each], the armor reduces stealth skills by 5 [they're both heavy armor] and also reduces equip time by 50%. the armor comes with no mods. it looks identical to the steel-blue colored heavy corporate armor. all in all, pretty disappointing. stick with other armors

                Missing from this list are 3 Unique pieces of Armor : 1) Purpleberry Police Armor (Cascadia Landing Pad) 2) and 3) Nightfall Police Armor and Helmet (sold by Percival when you reach reputation Revering with the Board)

                • 06 Nov 2019 14:56  

                  There's a need to include the faction "REWARD" weapons and armor here. I got at least these so far : 1) The Negotiator - from Catherine, after getting 100% approval from Sublight. 2) Adelaide's Gardening Shears from Adelaide - Deserters 100% 3) Nightfall Squad Armor and Helmet - from Percival - Board 100% (he also sells Latinus and Pauper Popper with enough approval, but it's less than 100%) We also have Bursty, but I didn't get it yet by normal means - it maybe is from Spacer's Choice approval reaching 100%, from Reed
