Dead Cells Final DLC - The Loop

02:30

This page covers Wasteland 3 armor. Unlike previous games, armor is generally broken down into three pieces: Chest armor, leg armor, and helmets, allowing for mixing and matching different items.

All armor pieces can be modified with armor mods.

Headgear

This section lists Helmet slot items that have no matching set (AKA fancy hats).

Light Armor

Light armor offers no movement penalties, but also doesn't offer the amount of protection heavy armor does.

Heavy Armor

All heavy armor suits have a minimal Strength requirement, and some need additionally Weird Science.

Characters that do not meet the Requirements can equip these suits, but will also get the negativ Effect in the "if requirement not met" column.
