Have you not seen the patch notes yet ?
The armor system will expierence various changes. The main ones being :
The introduction of level 4 And level 5 level 4 will have a 23.4% increase to damage protection than the current level 3 and level 5 will be 11.3% stronger than level 4. Will level 5 offering complete protection from any one explosive or sniper head shot.
The other thing they said they were changing the armored repair mechanism where there will be an item pick up consumable now that will automatically repair the armor while it’s being used so no need to stop in a gun fight basically
also there will be another consumable pick up that when equipped if you have any level of armor will pulse an energy beam and damage any enemy player that comes within its range, basically like a mini version of the shield I think
Lvl 2 and lvl 3 armor are still too strong in Blackout. Tired of shooting clip over clip into people, just to see them hide and repair the armor again.
