An advanced helmet for protection, added in Alpha 17. It replaces the Kevlar Helmet from earlier versions.

Overview & Obtaining

A step up from the simple helmet, this is a mid-tier helmet for most colonist uses.


It is made at the machining table using 70 materials, 2 components and 5 plasteel.

Comparison and Conclusion

It strikes a middle ground between the simple helmet and the power armor helmet, being moderately easy to make and provides average protection.

It is the lightest of all the helmets, only weighing 1.2 kg and causes a minimal -0.02 c/s move speed penalty.

Unlike its predecessor, the advanced helmet is craftable with any materials in addition to the plasteel and components required.
