Armor Icon

The Armor is a piece of equipment added in the 8.1.0 update and has various upgrades. Its primary use is to protect its user from damage sources. As of 16.2.0, individual upgrades for armor do not need to be bought, rather armor will upgrade to the maximum allowed for the user if an upgrade is attempted.

As of 16.2.0, instead of counting its durability, its power capacity is counted. However, the armor percentage does increase after buying every upgrade of the armor. Moreover, after reaching a new level, the power capacity of armor increases of 1. Since the maximum level is 55, the maximum power capacity is 55.

There are six modules used for armor:

Like any weapon, the armor has 3 slots in which the modules can be inserted to. However, unlike the weapons, armor doesn't have any unique ability for a module combination like the Oracle, the Explosive Ammo or the Stone Skin.


  • Armor and helmet armor points worked separately in multiplayer. Armor only defended against body shots and helmet defended against head shots. Armor points added by pickups will be added to the general pool, and monster damage will also hit the general armor point pool.
  • Originally there were 3 different armors: the Iron Miner Armor, the Golden Miner Armor and the Crystal Miner Armor. They were purchasable separately.
  • There was a glitch for some people where they couldn’t upgrade armor.
  • Armor will have pieces of the next armor type's main material. For example, if the player has wooden armor of any level upgrade, they will see it has pieces of iron on it. And iron will have gold on it. Ruby armor has three materials; Ruby (main material), diamond and adamant. This also was visible for helmets.
  • The Adamant Armor was initially a rentable piece of equipment, introduced in 9.3.0 update. However, it was removed from the Android version of the game in a minor update and never introduced in iOS devices. The Adamant Armor was reintroduced in 10.0.0 as an upgrade of the Ruby Armor for both iOS and Android.
  • As of the 10.3.0 update, the helmet was removed and was replaced by masks. Making the body part of the armor the only armor piece in the game.
  • Between the 10.4.0 update and the 11.4.0 updates, players got Light Wooden Armor for free after completing the tutorial. Players are also rewarded with 5Gem, 10Coin, 15 Exp icon and a Sniper Rifle.
    • However, in the 12.0.0 update, Newbie Armor was introduced and was earned as a temporary item.
    • Newbie Armor looked like Heavy Ruby Armor until 12.5.0.
    • Newbie Armor looks different from its PC counterpart.
  • In the 12.1.0 update, the Pixel Gun Company added a minor feature which automatically upgrades the armor into its heavy form once a player reaches a certain level.
  • In the 12.5.0 update, Champion Armor was added, the graphics of the first few armor sets were modified and the durability was multiplied along with the weapon damage.
    • However, in the 12.5.3 update, the durability multiplier has been reverted, but not the champion armor itself nor the modified look of the armor.
  • When the armor is unequipped, picking armor pickups used to put the armor even when it is unequipped. Now, picking up armor would have its sound effect, but will not give extra armor.
  • Pro League is the only league that doesn't have armor.
