"Oh god, they're multiplying! There's probably an entire corp of the goggled fucks." You cry, and then the elevator dings to a stop.
"Well, I'd better go get my powersuit." You say, shrugging.
Amy waves you off. "Come by my lab when you get back from Mark's grubby paws." She says. "And I'll install the power shielding. Well, maybe two sets of power shielding; I want to use you to test the weaponized version."
You enter Mark's workshop, and find him with a single, massive set of claws on one arm. They hiss and open slowly, before clanging shut again. He turns to you. "Behold! The power claw!" He cries, and then chuckles and sets it down. "Your suit's over here." He says, pointing you to it. "The helmet has no visor because it's a structural weakness; instead I built cameras into the outside." He says, and you look it over. The entire thing is thinner and lighter than the last power suit you wore, and built more to your build. Instead of a single power core in the lower back, the suit has two. If anything, it looks less like a powersuit, more like a set of armor, complete with rigid, almost medieval plates over the outside.
"So, Dave, you gonna try it on?" He asks.
"YES." You say in all caps, and then you try it on. It's comfortable, much more so than the last one you tried, and more agile. The sockets are perfectly fitted for your mechandrites, so you can use both at once, and there are two strange hitches near your shoulders.
"What are these?" You ask, poking one of the hitches.
"Well, you use those drones, right? I figured you could keep them there when you're not using them. Or you could just attach small turrets there, and tie those to your AI."
