Armorskin gland

Armorskin gland

This bionic gland releases chemicals and nanomachines that toughen the skin and add flexible subdermal keratin plates at strategic points. This makes the user more resistant to damage across their whole body. Unfortunately, These changes make the skin appear leathery, with wrinkles across the whole body and face, which is generally considered ugly.

The Armorskin Gland is an implant added by the Royalty DLC that gives a pawn that's been implanted with it a bonus to Sharp/Blunt/Heat Armor by 52/20/40% respectively, as well as reducing beauty by 1 and slowing the pawn by 10%.

It provides a noticeable amount of protection. Keep in mind that armor penetration usually negates a part of the implant's armor rating, making it less protective than expected.


It is made with 20 Plasteel and 6 advanced components at the fabrication bench, after the Skin Hardening research is completed. The required techprint can be obtained either by trade or completing quests for the Empire.
