Unfortunately the game is sunsetting on September 27. In light of this news we wish to extend our thanks to all contributors and readers of this wiki. This would not have been possible without each and everyone of you. We hope to find you again with what is next. The wiki will remain online until March 18 2024. Changes made in Patch 3.5.0 are unlikely to be represented on this wiki.

Armor

From The Cycle: Frontier Wiki
(Redirected from Reinforced Tactical Helmet)

Armor can be worn by prospectors to decrease the damage taken from various sources. A prospector can equip one helmet and one shield at a time.

Properties of Armor

Armor (value)

The behavior of the damage values depends on the Penetration value of the damage source and the armor rating. If both are equal, the damage is applied normally. If the armor rating is higher, the damage gets reduced by some percentage, determined by the Penetration mechanic. Likewise, if the penetration value exceeds the armor rating, the damage increases.

Durability

Every armor piece has a durability that is reduced whenever the wearer takes damage. The durability reduces by the base damage taken, before penetration formula is applied. The reduction in durability is applied after the damage is taken. Armor can be repaired at the Printer by paying with K-Marks. Durability does not impact how well the armor protects the wearer, unless its 0. Once the durability of an item reaches 0, the item stops protecting the wearer. Any special bonuses or perks the armor granted do not work anymore. The icon above the hotbar changes, indicating the item broke. When the item breaks, it stays in the inventory. It can then be repaired again at the Printer.

Armor variants

Some variants add an additional bonus, maximum stamina or passive health regeneration, but are more expensive to buy or craft, as well as more expensive to repair. If the armor breaks during a match, the passive effect will be disabled:

  • "Tactical" armor increases stamina
  • "Restorative" armor regenerates health over time
  • The "NV" helmet enhances vision in dark areas
