Equipment is crafted from Basic Materials or Advanced Materials by using the Fabricator and the Modification Station.

Equipment is unique in that it can be equipped to the player in the PDA UI. Items grant a passive buff and/or debuff to the player. Notable examples are the Standard O2 Tank and Fins. Some Equipment can also be upgraded to gain certain abilities through use of the Modification Station.
