Fallen Earth has released a new fashion guide for some of the weapons, armor, and equipables available in the game! Like any apocalyptic wasteland outfit - they don't always match! Utility and function are the reasons for wearing gear in the Fallen Earth universe, mixing and matching gear to survive wins over color coordination. Product manager Jessica "Circatrix" Orr recently took time time out to talk about some of the weapons and armor available in Fallen Earth!
Dressing for the Apocalypse: What Not to
Wear in the Wasteland
(with Product Manager for Fallen Earth, Jessica “Circatrix” Orr)
Whether you’re dressing for less or you have a lot of chips to blow, finding summer fashion for the Apocalypse is a cinch. As we’re struggling to beat the heat in North American summer, top fashion gurus in the Grand Canyon Province acknowledge that matching tops and coordinated accessories are so 2000. Instead, the well-equipped mutant will be sporting mismatched basics with a flair for the fantastic. We’ll review a few of the more trendy pieces and a few of the season’s “must-haves” for Fallen Earth.
Corkscrew: This tiny accessory is “killing me softly”-quality for any wasteland survivor. As a first level weapon with a purse-sized punch of nine points of damage per attack, this weapon could be easily classified as the most embarrassing way to die.
Chaps: Now more popular with pants underneath, chaps donned by survivors in black or brown give fifth level attire that Southwestern wasteland feeling.
Top Hat: A 10th level armor item with a pretty typical spread of armor values, this dashing accessory tops off any mediocre ensemble.
Hide Pants: Coined by a fashion expert and game designer for Fallen Earth, hide pants are “a thing you wear, not a thing you do.” Stitched together from several unrelated hides, these 15th level pants, along with camouflage fatigues, gain street cred with the masses until they find other options available in places such as Park City.
CHOTA Skull Maces: Emblazoned with a skull, these beauties are bad ass. Three different types of CHOTA maces are available to players through the CHOTA faction, ranging from 35th level and up. Named the CHOTA Anarchist’s Mace, the CHOTA Warrior’s Mace and the CHOTA Ravager’s Mace, they do due damage, and fashionably so.
Pink Pistols: Though not readily available on a broad scale, these gems sport a pink grip and/or a pink barrel and can occasionally be seen on handguns and assault rifles.
Hazmat Suits: Crisis comes in all shapes and sizes but players in the Phoenix Gear survive in style and are protected from poisons, radiation, acid and disease. Not as restrictive as the Warlord Gear, the outfit sports a re-breather built into the chest piece and a helmet—an attractive, yet functional high-tech gas mask.
