Armor vests

From Escape from Tarkov Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Armor vests are worn to reduce damage from gunfire. They are often complemented with Helmets.

To learn more about the effectiveness of body armor check the Ballistics page.

Escape from Tarkov classes body armor under the Russian armor system, GOST, instead of the more well known NIJ system. (See trivia section for more info)
