I bought two Multi-hit ballistic face shield-visor for Ops-Core FAST helmet, for the LZSh light helmet, they were 40/40, cost like 200K each, but both had Cracks in them near centre of visor, is this a bug ? surely if you buy a 100% 40/40 visor it should be new ? tried all the fixes that are out on the internet and nothing works to get rid of the crack, any help, thx

Did you try repairing it anyway? You might have found a bug. If in doubt please make enough pictures and description and file in a bug report. Too many people complain on forums but don't participate in reporting bugs. Nothing personal. Just a general observation.

I did post on reddit tarkov about it also, and they said its been a known bug for years now :( then i googled my problem, and its every where, and been on going right back to 2017, would have thought it would be fixed by now, wont repair as its a 40/40 100% brand new visor.

It's possible they got hit by buckshot which didn't cause damage to the shield.  Once it takes damage and you repair it the cracks will go away.

200k for a class 3 FS?

Stop doing drugs lol

other than that, very strange indeed

There about 240K each actually, very popular i guess, must be a reason.

But i bought brand new at 40/40, just would have thought there be perfect, also, alot of people saying even when fixed the cracks sometimes still there.

Ah sorry mate I misunderstood.  I thought you bought it from the flea market.

There used to be a bug where if you repaired the shield the cracks would stay for a single raid then disappear.  You can always get around that by doing a quick offline raid then disconnecting - I would always check to see if they were there in the hideout first. 

That said my experience this wipe has been when repaired the cracks disappear right away.

they fixed that bug like you said. now you don't need to do a offline raid. just check it in hideout, then repair and get in the raid.

I don't know what you're doing with your traders but peacekeeper is selling them for 349$, which is already overpriced

I can't begin to understand why anyone would put 240k on a crappy visor like this one, combined with a crappy helmet like the LZSH

Besides the problem with that visible crack - what's the point in using a class 3 faceshield for 200+k? I have not worn a helmet this wipe at all and about 95% of the headshots I received would have penetrated class 3 and 4 anyhow.

Right guys, thx for all the replys, i am only level 1 P, so have to buy from flea for alot of what i want, and yes well over priced :(,  @scrappercb , yes i did buy from flea, but you would think 40/40 visor would be clean of cracks ?,  also i have tried all this dropping helmet in a offline raid, and even insured item and discarded it on a online raid, and few dayslater when returned it still has cracks on visor,  and everytime i try in hideout, i have nightvision on, and cant use my helmet anyway,  @behi09ma ,  but you cant fix a 40/40 visor can you, so cant even repair to see if crack goes,  @Shibre93100 , yeh i cant buy that cheap as i am only level 1 P, so have to buy from flea,  i only use visor to stop all the ai scavs shot gunning me in the face, your right, any shot to head with good ammo will kill me anyway, but im fed up with scav one shotting me in face all the time.

Did you buy it from a player, or from one of the merchants? Only the ones bought from a merchant are guaranteed to be 100% pristine.

A 40/40 from a player could be a 39.99/40 for all we know. Rounding is fun.

@Daytrader If you don't care about hearing everything you can just go with the kiver.

It will serve the same purpose as it's a lvl 3 helmet and FS, for a fraction of the cost

Same for the Zsh-1-2M, lvl4 helmet, lvl3 FS that both cost nothing

 i have nightvision on, and cant use my helmet anyway,  @behi09ma 

there is a tab up on your left in hideout, you can turn the night vision on and off from there. no you can't repair a full durable armor or visor. even sometimes some specific armors with ceramic materials, can not get repaired even it is not in full durable status.

you kinda confused me, did you buy that visor from a trader or from a player? i'm pretty sure you have bought it from a player, cause there is no way to have a crack on it if you have bought it from a trader.

Yeah like has been said buying from the flea it still could've taken some hits.  Face shields can get hit by things like buckshot which won't necessarily "damage" the armor itself (The 40/40 part) but will still be knackered from a cosmetic standpoint.  Soon as you repair it once though the damage will all disappear.  Not much help in the meantime though I'm afraid.

Then wait until you levelled up the traders, it doesn't take long at all

By buying those FS on the flea you're just scamming yourself

Also, lvl3 FS are not of any use besides protecting from scavs. It's really not worth the investment
