Introduced by the Royalty DLC, the Eltex shirt allows psychic pawns to be more effective, improving the strength and cooldown of their Psycasts.


This item cannot be crafted but only purchased through trade or received as a quest reward. It also spawns on Imperial Nobles.


Compared to similar items, the Eltex shirt has the same coverage as, and similar protection to, a cloth t-shirt. This makes it significantly less protective than typical late-game options such as Devilstrand button-down shirts, which has four times the sharp rating and superior coverage. However, due to the mechanics of armor penetration the loss of protection is not as significant as the the eltex robe replacing a duster, especially if paired with other protective items such as dusters, flak vests or the various powered armors.

The eltex shirt also appeases the skin torso requirements of all nobles, replacing the Formal shirt.

An Eltex shirt improves a pawns neural heat recovery rate by .03, equivalent to an additional recovery of 1.0 per 30 seconds, and Psychic Sensitivity by an amount dependent on the quality.
