Escape from Tarkov Helmets Guide

The idea of walking through Tarkov without your head covered is as if you’re throwing yourself into a horde of adversaries with knives in your hands It’s possible to defeat some however, you’ll be unable to make it through. For those who are just beginning and aren’t yet deciding on their option of a helmet We’ve prepared the following guideline for Escape from Tarkov helmets.

The helmets that are used in the game are a must-have in addition to the torso shield we covered in the earlier Escape from Tarkov guide – body armor. They might not be the same way as bibs however, in the event of Tarkov any kind of protection is more effective than none.

The heads of characters are typically divided into five parts the head, the behind of the head, eyes, ears and jaw. Any direct hit to one of them can be fatal. The more areas on the face are protected and covered, the better chance players will outlast an injury to the head.

Headgear’s characteristics are noted for their durability and movement-related penalties, as well as the amount of protected areas (most will cover the front, the top of the head, and the ears) ergonomics, as well as compatibility with other gadgets. Additionally, there are indications for the soundproofing of the device and for ricochet risk.

The first parameter influences the squelching of sounds from outside while the second will guarantee the possibility of the bullet rebounding after striking the helmet. The fighter may be hit in this instance however it is not injured.
