Escape from Tarkov Wiki
Advertisement

Headwear in Escape from Tarkov offers multiple purposes.

There are vanity items, protective helmets and utility items. Each helmet offers protection for different segments of the head, which becomes an important consideration before heading into combat.

Another important consideration to make is that different helmets will have a different impact on how much sound they muffle. Sound is an important part of the gameplay in Escape from Tarkov.

Escape from Tarkov also features modular helmets that have a number of different components which will influence and change the amount of segments protected by the helmet. The segments, are as follows: Top, Nape, Ears, Eyes and Jaws.

To learn more about the effectiveness of armored headwear check the Ballistics page.
