Armor is a subcategory and type of apparel that generally offers good protection from damage, poor insulation and, in some cases, move speed penalties.

All apparel functions in the same way mechanically. Clothing and Armor primarily differ only in their categorization and a tendency to prioritize either damage or environmental protection respectively. Therefore, see Apparel for details on the mechanics common to all types of apparel.

Apparel layers

Each item of apparel or utility gear is worn on a specific location of the wearer's body. That location is determined by two things:

  1. The body part groups it covers.
  2. The layer or layers it occupies.

Apparel combinations are limited by layer and coverage - an item cannot be worn with another item that covers the same body parts and on the same layer. Thus, items covering the same parts but on different layers are compatible, as are items on the same layer but with no overlap in coverage. Items that cover multiple layers conflict with items on all layers.

Layers are also used to determine the order in which armor calculations are performed, with the outermost layer's armor applying first, and progressing through the layers until the attack is stopped or there are no more layers.

The layers, from innermost to outermost, are:

  • Skin: The closest layer to the body, and mostly used for apparel below the head.
  • Middle: The second closest layer to the body, and mostly used for apparel below the head.
  • Outer: The third layer from the body, and mostly used for apparel below the head. Note that it will be displayed on the pawn's sprite above all other layers, even though it is considered below the following layers for actual mechanical effects.
  • Belt: Technically the fourth layer. A distinct layer for utility items to allow them to be worn alongside any other apparel but not with each other.
  • Headgear: The fifth layer, and used for headwear. There are several items that cover body parts typically covered by the other layers however, in which case this will be above them.
  • Eyes: The outermost layer. A distinct layer only used for the blindfoldContent added by the Ideology DLC to allow it to be worn alongside headwear.

Which body parts currently have items that occupy each of the layers is shown in the table on the below; layers and body parts which are not currently used by gear were omitted. As such, the hands and feet which are not covered by any apparel or any layer, are omitted.

  • Body Part Group Coverage Skin Middle Outer Headgear Eyes Belt Image

    Torso Torso × × ×
    Waist Waist ×
    Neck Neck × × × ×
    Legs Left & Right Leg × × ×
  • Examples

    • You can't wear pants as well as tribalwear, since both cover the "skin" layer and cover the legs.
    • You can wear pants and a button-down shirt, since while they both use the "skin" layer they don't cover the same parts.
    • You can wear pants and a duster, since while they both cover the legs pants use the "skin" layer while a duster uses the "outer" layer.

    Comparison tables

    Apparel combinations are limited by layer and coverage - an item cannot be worn with another item covering the same body parts and on the same layer. Thus, items covering the same parts but on different layers are compatible, as are items on the same layer but with no overlap in coverage. Items that cover multiple layers conflict with items on all layers.

    As such the following tables are divided by layer, but note that individual items on that layer may not be incompatible if their coverage does not overlap. For example, flak pants and the flak vest which both occupy the middle layer do not cover the same body parts, and thus can be worn together.

    The hands and feet, across all layers, are NOT covered by any apparel present in base game.

    Since some armor covers multiple layers, they are present in multiple tables as well.
