Armor

The other half of your stack is your armor. Unlike health, a player never spawns with full armor, so you can immediately begin picking up armor after you spawn. All armor items are green and come in three forms. Light Armor will restore one armor container, and respawns in 30 seconds. More importantly, a suit of Heavy Armor will restore four armor containers, increasing your armor rating by up to 100 points, including up to three containers above your max armor. Like the Mega Health, the Heavy Armor is a major item with a 30 second respawn time. 

Lastly, following combat, each fallen combatant will drop three Armor Shards. Armor Shards provide 5 armor points each, a small boost to your armor pool to provide you a bit of protection and reward for your success in combat. Even when you are already at max armor, Armor Shards can also be collected to increase your armor stack, granting you temporary protection, much like the Heavy Armor – so try to get in a habit of collecting those armor shards.

HEAVY ARMOR #

The Heavy Armor is the armor equivalent of Mega Health. It is a major pick-up that will increase your armor points by 100 points, including up to three containers (75 AP) above your max armor.

Like the Mega Health, your armor points will decay back to your max armor, so take advantage of the bonus while you can. Heavy Armor takes 30 seconds to respawn.

LIGHT ARMOR #

Each Light Armor shield pick-up restores 50 armor points, increasing it up to but not beyond your max armor. You can often find a few of these throughout the arena, where they can provide you a good boost to get back into the action when low.

ARMOR SHARD #

In most game modes, when a player is killed they drop 2 Armor Shards. These small shards grants the user 10 armor points as a quick means to recover and repair your damaged armor.

While they each only grant a small boost, collecting them after fragging your enemy can make the difference between life or death in your next encounter.
