The AntAgonizer's armor is strongly inspired by ants, with shoulder pads, greaves and armguards resembling a giant ant's carapace, and the helmet having insectoid eyes and matching antennae.

They can be obtained from the AntAgonizer either through negotiation or by killing her. If Uncle Roe has asked for a solution to the town's "Superhero" problem, the AntAgonizer's costume can be handed over to the Mechanist to end the town's problems. Alternatively, wearing the costume in the Mechanist' presence will turn him hostile. When the costume is given to the Mechanist, he will hand over the unique laser pistol, Protectron's Gaze.

- The costume can only be repaired by non-player characters at cost, such as the Caravan Merchants.
- The helmet can be worn with glasses, thus combining high DR with useful effects.
- Wearing the helmet or armor does not affect the behavior of ants.
