NieR: Automata – Unlocking New Outfits
Most RPGs these days allow you to dress up your characters in different outfits and clothing, and NieR: Automata does let you do that as well, to a small extent. To be clear, Automata certainly doesn’t have a super wide variety of outfits that you can choose from and change into as and when you want. Instead, for the first half of the game, you’ll mostly be collecting accessories from side mission completion. For instance, you’ll unlock different colored ribbons from doing the Lost Girl side mission, and you can equip the accessory by heading into your Items menu and selecting it from Key Items.
You’ll unlock a battle suit armor for both 2B and 9S at the start of your third playthrough of the game, and these can also be equipped through the Key Items tab in your menu. For now, these are the only alternate outfits that you can unlock for your characters, and there are no other options aside from this and the default clothing. It’s worth noting that the battle suit doesn’t provide any additional perks or stat boosts either, so clothing changes are purely cosmetic.
