Armor Management

Players can equip body armor and/or a helmet. On the Armor Ledger, you can also inspect, compare them, flag them as junk, break them down for parts, or drop them to reduce your carrying weight. There are different types of armor you can find during your exploration which grants various buffs, defenses, and most importantly, changes the physical appearance of the player if it is equipped.

 

Armor Conditions

Overtime, armor degrade with excessive use and can break and will have minimum effectiveness once the condition reaches zero. Players can find a Workbench and repair it, or you can do it if you have the Engineering skill. Or have a vendor do it.
