All soldiers have three slots that can carry a utility item. Special armor suits such as EXO and Spider Suits Have a heavy weapon slot instead of one utility slot.
Armor items are utility slot items that improve survivability. Soldiers can only carry one vest and one plating.

These items grant Ablative Armor. Hitpoints granted by Ablative Armor once lost, can not be healed during a mission. Losing these extra Hitpoints does not count towards taking a wound and does not incur recovery time after the battle. A unit can equip only one Plating at a time, but in addition to a Vest.

Grenades can be carried by any class, but Grenadiers particularly excel with them, because they can launch them with extended range with their Grenade Launchers. Grenadiers also have an extra equipment slot that can only be used for a grenade.

1 Upgraded from previous version with Advanced Explosives Proving Ground project.
2 Requires Alien Hunters DLC
Flashbangs are particularly useful against special enemies such as psionics. The disorientation effect prevents the use of most special abilities, including psionics, and will cut short any ongoing psionic effect such as Reanimate or Mind Control.
Incendiary grenades/bombs currently have a 75/85% chance of igniting enemies.
Special rounds can be used by any character with any main weapon, including beam weapons. They are also applied to pistol sidearm.
