Item Database - Grid Armor Mk IV

Grid Armor Mk IV Icon #154554 This device is used by fixers to transfer their physical body (but not equipment) almost completely into the Grid, yet retain a presence in the real world. The link between the Grid and reality is maintained by a Multi-Spatial Phasing Beacon. What is left of the fixer in the real world is a semi-solid web of energy that the fixer controls as easily as they would their own body. When in this state, the only way the fixer can be damaged is if the Multi-Spatial Phasing Beacon is itself damaged, which hovers in the center of the energy web. A symbiotic link is maintained between the fixer and the Beacon while this device is worn - if the Beacon is destroyed, the fixer will die. However, given the small size of the Beacon, the majority of attacks tend to be avoided.

The MK I / MK II / MK II should be easier to find! Not to easy, but hell, 30-200 mill for ONE armor piece? This is crappy
Seppuko @ 2002-08-09 06:41
Grid armor is ONE piece.
You summon it with a nano
wolf84 @ 2003-09-03 15:25
Well, first of all, GA is ONE complete armor piece...Second, it is a very good armor piece, and third, it is VERY RARE.....even the MK I and II's are rare
Ubatobd @ 2003-09-12 11:09
But use it with MAXED evades, or it will be useless: you won't escape anyone with only 150 evades and 2000AC...
But well used, it's nice!! I saw a fixer friend, level 139, soloing Trash King and killing it with her GA3!
Dead66 @ 2003-11-01 20:57
any one know where IV drops? been needing some money?
Gng @ 2003-12-03 02:37
In trash, on bosses, on mobs in chests.. totally random
And 3rd isnt too rare, but 4th is :)
Icarys @ 2004-04-14 05:47
in the 3 times I have found it on NPC's it is always a Fixer.
geargrinderx @ 2004-07-18 14:08
You don't even really have to max evades :-P the 150 evades is more of a byproduct. The real kicker is the 2100 defense modifier.
Gellybelly @ 2004-09-13 15:50
only 150 evades and 2100 defense mod wont cut it when you're lvl 175+
zyx21 @ 2005-01-24 08:38
Do you even know what a 2100 def mod is Gellybelly?
Nospamas @ 2005-02-04 08:55
I have it, I can honestly say that GA4 is one, if not *the* most powerful item on RK, if you have an SL gun. Theres not much that can get though maxed evades, +150 to each and +2100 add all def. I think people underestimate its power because its so rare... Why do you think funcom keep nerfing it? lol. No good in SL though, so you can forget it for leveling 200+. Aliens though, its great, never hit me pysically, and maxed NR +300 fron GA4 gives a reasonable rate of resisting the virral nukes.
aamp88 @ 2005-05-02 14:24
kicks fc stop nerfing my fixer darn u
zyx22 @ 2005-05-04 14:34
User Resistance Snare 50%
User Resistance Root 50% + sd = 95% resist? personally I'd take an armorset for pvp...
Mallor @ 2005-05-21 10:42
Well my lvl 20 Fixer has GA 1 on, and even a lvl 100 guard hits me 1/15..Imagine GA4 is 3x better than GA 1 and i personally think u'r untoucable with GA 4..U'R A GOD
olezero @ 2005-06-20 06:25
pvp a NT ! ;)
GOD @ 2005-07-27 03:30
can you do summon grid armor in false/assume/mimic profession fixer? i've always wondered that.
exhaze @ 2005-07-31 20:48
User Profession == Fixer

haha yeah right, forums would be flooded with people going OMGGZ NERF AGENT!!
triggerzer0 @ 2005-08-03 06:27

it's terrible in pvp now, any enf or keeper or other melee player with a high attack rating can blow right through it.
Moniker @ 2005-08-22 12:34
Well how dare we ma's ever be able to hit them :) everyone know GA makes you immortal! :)
Moniker @ 2005-08-22 12:34
demon4ever @ 2005-09-11 18:14
no it doesnt...tho it helps a lot :)
its lo ACs mean u lose lot of HP when u get hit (and believe...sometimes u do)
Cheysey @ 2005-10-04 23:17
i might be stoopid? but i dont see a single nerf of GA4... not one..checked everything..if anything it's better now than it was at 13.0
ppl just have alot higher attack rating now than before.. ga4 issnt very usefull in pvp past lvl150... at 200+ the sws is life.. GA is death.
Morthoseth @ 2005-10-16 20:34
At lv75 though, it's a lot of fun. :p
Whitey @ 2005-11-04 21:42
Heh, like olezero said.. pvp a NT!
Mannystk @ 2005-12-20 12:01
or if u dont really max ur evades and count on this for ur evade / Defense buff then pvp an Mp who casts NSD on ur squishyness
Shojumaru @ 2006-01-02 15:25
GA4 + SmG + Maxed evades & Nanoresist... Not much gets to my smurf. Not to mention the 2 Acrobat specials... Oh yeah, it holds it's own.
Ofex @ 2006-01-15 06:27
triggerzer0 @ 2005-08-03 06:27

omg if anything nerf it how could u complain. its not supposed to make u invincible, just nearly :P
triggerzer0 @ 2006-01-17 09:39
oh, btw, GA wasnt nerfed, the way add all deff works was
....... @ 2006-02-10 02:18

....... @ 2006-02-10 02:19
add a engi AC's buff and SL implants= like 2k more AC's
Msauss @ 2006-02-19 13:16

Yakobo66 @ 2006-07-09 00:38

I wouldn't ever dare verse a NT in GA

......You won't quote poetry at them? Surely you weren't trying to use "vs." as a verb, because that's just stupid. Almost as stupid as the very first comment on GA4 here.
Xira @ 2007-03-22 20:16
Some people just dont bother to make themselves coherent.
Xira @ 2007-05-24 19:59
Sunglasses of Syncopated Heartbeats - Doesn't work with GA
Hollow Bone Bracer of Merlin Ambrosius - Works with GA
Corroded ring - works with GA
Ljotur stuff - Doesn't work with GA
Truspace 900 XL- Doesn't work with GA
Arcanum Specs - Doesn't work with GA
Anything that says "Can Wear With Social Armor" works unless it also says "User Cyberdeck not & 4 " in which case it doesn't work.
farlath @ 2007-10-03 22:10
"add a engi AC's buff and SL implants= like 2k more AC's"

Lol, you looked at the top end engie ac buffs? teamed with an engie, you can get + 5k with gift of assurance, +627 with sympathetic fortress screen, and if the engie slams freak sheild you get another + 4k on top of that for a time. With ga4's 2k ac's that's 11627 strait down the list... and that isn't counting symbs.
kilafiremage @ 2010-01-14 00:23
and since ac's cap at 10,000, that makes this armor just as good or better than all others! (defensive wise)

also is there any better fixer armor for a level 200 froob fixer?
dynahunter38 @ 2010-09-03 07:41
u can still wear ljotur someone even tells u how in another grid armor heading but why risk getting a ban for another 2000 lulzy ac ga should give ac just to show how worthless it is :P there is a ljotur piece that buffs dodges and inits tho, but yeah why risk a ban lol
dynahunter38 @ 2010-09-03 07:42
*should give ac it should read
dynahunter38 @ 2010-09-03 07:42
wth this thing doesnt like the arabic numeral for ZERO
oopsminded @ 2020-01-30 23:03
Looted it today from the lvl 130 dyna in Varmint Woods.
