Armor penetration is a vital element of Wasteland 2 combat. It determines how much damage is done to the target, if any.

How it works

There are two factors involved:

If the weapon's penetration rating is above or equal to the target armor rating, the weapon deals 100% of the damage.

If the weapon penetration is below the target's armor rating, though, the damage is reduced.

Armor minus penetration 0 1 2 3 4 5 6
Damage multiplier 1 0.8 0.7 0.6 0.4 0.2 0
