An advanced helmet for protection. A step up from the simple helmet, this is a mid-tier helmet for most colonist uses. It is the lightest of all the helmets, only weighing 1.2 kg and causes a minimal -0.02 c/s move speed penalty.

Acquisition

Can be crafted at the machining table using 40 materials, 2 components and 10 plasteel.

Analysis

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

Protection Information


Version history

  • It is added in Alpha 17, replacing the Kevlar helmet from previous versions. The difference is that it can be made out of any material, requires 5 plasteel to craft and has increased protection across the board.
  • In Beta 19 its material cost has been decreased from 70 to 40, but requires more plasteel, from 5 to 10, and materials now affect armor rating. It also protects against heat.
