- "All of our ground gear and Skell weaponry is developed in conjunction with private arms manufacturers, or AMs. Outfitters are BLADE's way of supporting these AMs. They'll seek out anything that might inspire new weapon ideas, and even assist in testing new prototypes."

Outfitters is a division within BLADE which supports the development of the Arms Manufacturers, developer of weapons for both Skells and infantry. This division is known as Arms in the Japanese version. Outfitters receive increased Division Points from gathering R&D points and leveling up Arms Manufacturers. Receiving division support from Outfitters grants R&D Support, which increases number of R&D points gained during combat.
