Defensive Fortification is a ND1 Nomad health and shield upgrade.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

This upgrade can be purchased from a merchant or developed with resources. The upgrade will be installed the next time you enter the Nomad.

Blueprint[edit | edit source]

The Defensive Fortification blueprint is available when Ryder reaches Level 6. It requires the following resources for development:

Notes[edit | edit source]

After the Nomad's life support is depleted completely, this upgrade increases the amount of time the Nomad can withstand health damage in a life support depleting hazard zone by 25%. For example, a level 2 cold hazard on Normal difficulty takes 299 seconds to deplete Nomad health before death occurs. Installing Defensive Fortification increases this amount of time to 372 seconds.

The 25% health damage time increase is the same regardless of hazard type (heat, cold, etc).

Detailed statistics for shields and hull integrity can be tracked on the Nomad Stats tab in the statistics menu.
