  • 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, they can't upgrade it.
  • Armor will have pieces of the next armor type's main material. Example; If you have wooden armor of any level upgrade, you 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.
    • However, Adamant Armor didn't have too much red and didn't even have light gray or black, which are the main colors for it's successor, Champion Armor.
    • Champion weapons were added later (champion peacemaker, champion solar Cannon, anti champion rifle, champion electric arc, and champion mercenary) after the champion armor was added.
  • The Adamant Armor was initially a rent-able 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. You 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.
