  1. I got 1 tapped through Paca/Fort and Helmet yesterday 3 or 4 rounds in a row. Then i decided to do a quick test with a friend. We went factory with a helmet and different weapons. First of all it makes no difference when someone wears a helmet if you shoot him in the face or on the helmet, always does the same damage. Second a TT with the LNPRC ammo 1 Tapped through the helmet Third an AKN with the PS ammo (silenced) across the room behind Forklifts, 1 Tapped through the helmet. So what is the point of the helmets right now, other than helping if someone buys the cheapest ammo maybe? And then he probably needs only 2 shots in the head to kill you. Theres like no difference at the moment between helmet and no helmet, kinda feels like the superman hat. What do you guys think?

    Face Shields

    I think that the face shields brand new shouldn't block much visibility but as they get damaged and repaired they get worse and worse.

    Whats up with Fort armor?

    I dont understand whats happening with fort armo, im assuming its a bug but dont really know, ive picked up multiple fort armors off scavs, 2 or 3 of which where completely new, and each time it says they have a life of 80 only for me to repair it and have it show like it used to be when they had a life of 65. ive also had a few that go into my inventory as full 80 then after a few matches or logging out and back in turn into 65, just wanted to see if this happens to anyone else or am i just crazy?

    Armor feels weak and Expensive

    I've noticed that even with an Untar I die from two bullets to the chest from anyone that isn't using PRS on an AK. It is so expensive yet only saves you from a few PST 9x19, all 9x18, and a few shot gun rounds. While that is useful the introduction of the face hit box makes it easy to kill anyone alongside stupidly expensive prices I feel that armor is useless at this point. I barely run with a helmet because 6B's (don't have have skier to level 3 do to being level 22, so i can't use a kiver and won't because of sound) only cover your scalp and you can die from being shot at head level from any side and comtacs are worse than no helmet/no comtacs. ( I feel i hear more without either.) And with the muffled sound along side the glitch were someone doesn't make any noise to begin with, armor just feels like expensive outfits.

    Armor Class frage

    Hey, Mich würde interessieren wie genau die Armor Class in Tarkov zu verstehen ist. Aus eigener erfahrung weiß ich das Ballistische Schutzwesten und Helme in der Nato mit SK (Schutzklasse) oder NIJ Body Armor Protection Levels angegeben sind. Allerdings gibt es in diesen Angaben jeweils nur 4 stufen, in Tarkov allerdings 6 Stufen siehe Fort Armor. Erst dachte ich mir das die Entwickler bei Tarkov das durch die Armor Zones und der HP der jeweiligen Ausrüstung selbst bezeichnen für das bessere Verständnis. Allerdings habe ich in mehreren RU und US shops nach der Fort Armor gesucht, und festgestellt das sie dort ebenfalls als Klasse 6 angegeben ist, mit der gleichen Beschreibung wie in Tarkov das diese Weste für klein Kaliber und Schrapnell ausgelegt ist. Und jetzt ist meine Frage, gibt es in Russland weitere Schutzklassen und wenn ja wie sind diese zu verstehen. Weil mich wundert das die GZHEL-K mit die erste weste in Tarkov ist die Keramik platten nutzt. (Was wiederum beim Deutschen sowie US Militär meistens die höchste Schutzklasse ist). Ich hoffe hier ist irgend ein nerd im forum unterwegs und kann mich dies bezüglich aufklären diese Frage lässt mich nicht mehr ruhig schlafen. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Danke

    Armor Durability

    I was told this was an on going problem since alpha, if that's true then why is it only happening now to me? it only started since this wipe just about every time I put armor on the durability will drop to 0. it usually would be a problem but with the dead aim accuracy the scavs have right now I cant see to live very long because of the armor problem. is there something I can do to prevent it or something I'm doing wrong to induce it?
  7. I don't know why people think this is the case (I suspect PUBG is at fault), but in reality these helmets are only rated to stop 7.62x25, 9x18 and 5.45x18 cartridges, they are officially rated as GOST level 2. There are very very few real world helmets that can actually stop rifle caliber rounds, and almost none of them were ever in mainstream production or use with military/law enforcement. Here are the only helmets I know of rated to stop rifle caliber rounds from close range. X-shell MK-1, can resist multiple close range 7.62x39 hits with a backface deformation profile similar to those left by 9x19 on regular IIIA helmets. Vulcan-5, rated to resist hits from steel core 7.62x39 and 7.62x54R at 5 meters. Ceradyne ECH, rated to level IIIA+ with the additional ability to resist hits from 7.62x51 M80 ball that is traveling below 2,450 fps. Those are the only helmets I am personally aware of that can resist rifle caliber rounds hitting directly and without extreme angle (which can allow normal IIIA helmets to deflect some rifle rounds, but this is only at range and with sufficient strike angle). As far as I know none of these helmets are being added to the game anytime soon.
  8. Add taking off helmet and armor animations aswell as vest rigs everything
  9. I propose to reorganize the Weapons Department into a Gear Department with SubForums for Weapons, Armor and Equipment which are then further broken down into Categories (e.g. Pistols, Assault Rifles etc.) which can then have individual SubCategories on specific firearms. Each might have pinned and locked threads giving an overview of each firearm and perhaps a short historical background. As a former industry guy and history buff, I volunteer to help out. Theory and practice are both pretty good but I do not claim to be any sort of ninja. OTH I have a pretty good handle on the commercial side.

    How many people think that using a helmet should reduce hearing distance/accuracy if not used with comtacs, making viable not using a helmets. (just a thought)

    New Helmet Sugg.

    Will we maybe be seeing an american variant to the russian 6B47, maybe we could see the MICH 2000 on PK. https://www.google.com/search?q=mich+2000&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=ByzralYOPPKHuM%3A%2CDPorI_Wlcami1M%2C_&usg=__5N8RTbsTQBHuqwkoSkE-xPNwKek%3D&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiGvre_3sTZAhVDmlkKHdEVBRoQ9QEIMzAE#imgrc=yJuMHwXiXtweuM:
  12. //Armor tiers// At the moment there are only 4 tiers of armor (Tier 2; 3; 4; 5) and for me atleast the tiers dont make any sense. There is no tier 3 and 4 Body armor , there are 2 tier 4 helmets and 2 tier 2 body armor. Also at the moment there is no tier 1 armor. I think, that There should be helmet and body armor for each tier. Tier 1: Workers Helmet (Should be added), Yellow Vest (Should be added) Tier 2: 3M, Kolpak Tier 3: PACA, Kiver-M Tier 4: UN Body armor (Should be added), 6B47 (UN Helmet armor) Tier 5: 6B43 6A (Fort Armor); Fast MT helmet I think that PACA needs to be made tier 3 armor since theres no point of 2 tier 2 body armor and Fast MT should be tier 5 so it would go together with fort. //HP- Hit points/Health points// //Tier 1: Workers Helmet// In Factory, In Shoreline (At the Pier) and probaby a lot more else there are grey Workers Helmets on the ground. They could be made as tier 1 armor, only protects against 1 hatchet hit to the head or 1 bullet that doesnt penetrate tier 1, has 5 HP and disappears after destroyed, would cost only 2000 RUB, could buy it from Prapor Trust LVL 1. They should be made yellow and you could be able to pick them up from the ground if you find one, so they could spawn every so often. //Tier 1: Yellow Vest// Construction site workers IRL wear Yellow Vests. Since Tier 1 helmet would be workers helmet, then staying on the theme of workers i think, that tier 1 body armor should be Yellow Vest. It would only protect against 2 hatchet hits or 2 bullets that dont penetrate tier 1, it would have 5 or 10 HP and would only cost 3500 RUB, Skier Trust LVL 1 would sell it. Since it would be a light reflective Vest it would be bright in day and night. //Tier 4: UN Body armor, UN Helmet armor// Since recently there was Added the 6B47 Helmet and i think it looks like the helmet that UN guards are wearing in the loading screen it should be renamed UN Helmet and have UN written on the front of it. Also, there should be added the UN Body Armor that the UN guards in the loading screen are wearing. They both would have 30 HP and be tier 4. I think that Prapor tier 4 and Peacekeeper tier 3 would sell the UN body armor, Prapor - for 45 000 RUB, Peacekeeper - for 500 USD. //Durrability, HP of the armor// I think that the HP of the same armor tier should be around the same value. So this is how i think the HP of armor should be. Tier 1: Workers Helmet (5HP), Yellow vest (10HP) Tier 2: 3M (25HP), Kolpak (25HP) Tier 3: PACA (45HP), Kiver-M (40HP) Tier 4: UN Body armor (30HP), UN Helmet armor (30HP) Tier 5: Fort Armor (50HP), Fast MT helmet (All Parts together, 50HP) These Values are mainly chosen due to how much of each Armor I use and wear, how many ammo types there are to penetrate them and the rarity of them.

    Paca should be useless against rifle/ANY armor piercing rounds, the Sr-1mp should go through lvl IIIa armor like butter, and whats the point of doing 1 point of damage to a paca when using the GDT tomahawk. 15 damage out of 60 is reasonable enough i think. and what about, say if a fast mt gets hit by a shotgun blast point blank and it tanks it, how about that person gets aim punched ducking hard and gets a contusion?

    Shotguns vs armor

    I have a suggestion on how shotguns work in tarkov. in the real world shooting buckshot about 10 feet at a target the spread is tight enough to be considered a slug basically. maybe treat buckshot within that range as a slug perhaps? What do you guys think?

    Armor effect on maneuverability

    Hi all, I looked at several armor threads and it seems that they always mention the damage system. At the same time, we see topics about 9mm AP ammo, because people want to use the submachine guns more but since they are not as effective as assault rifles against armor, they are just left aside. But what about maneuverability? At the moment it seems armor only has a speed penalty (which is pretty much negated by strength grinding). There is also a turn speed penalty but if that doesn't affect the weapon sway and aiming speed, it is not really a negative effect, people would just use a different mouse sensibility and that's it. Is there a plan to make heavy armors more cumbersome as one would naturally expect? Having pieces of armor getting in the way should generate more weapon sway (i.e. time to align after a rotation) and slower ADS speed that with lighter armor, as well as more noise when turning around. Also loot/search time should be slower with armor than without it. Acceleration from still position to moving should be better without armor. I don't know about sound (should it be muffled with helmets)? That would make good reasons to use lighter armor over the tanky armors. p.s.: heavy backpacks would have similar effects

    Armor and Sound

    Someone in full fort and fast should not be a ninja just from slow walking compared to a paka or even someone naked
  17. So, I just played a quick game on Customs, heard a dude rushing the Garage, I was behind the counter, I hit him 3 times with an AK-74N, he took all 3 shots for 147 damage, I had PACA and a Kiver, he killed me with 1 shot, why does Tarkov struggle to identify that a non-armored target is more susceptible to bullet wounds, I hit center mass, his heart is there, yet he lives? What the heck is going on with Tarkov and lucky kids sponging bullets consistantly!???

    Being hit on wearing Bulletproof Vests

    Hi all. We all know that players wearing Armor Vests (Class 2 or 6) must be hit many more time get killed, you first have to breach their vest and then they get really damaged (or you can score hit on non-covered parts of the body) I know that this fact isn't really realistic due to gameplay problems and this is okay and fun. But when you wear a Fort Armor and you get hit by a Shotgun from 2 meters, you don't die off course because you wear the armor but at least you are very stunned from the hit you got. I suggest to add a Stunned Effect like grenades do, maybe less invasive maybe less durable just a second or 2, but I think this is very important for gameplay. You don't die but the game cannot let you go around like nothing happened, at least a few second of stun must be added, or smomething like this. Maybe the player hit can fall on the ground on his back, being able to shoot back after a second.. I think you understand what I mean Off course you don't die but you got an Hammered in your chest like if it was Thor launched the shot
  20. I searched on google for how to farm fort.
