Armor is used by XCOM soldiers to provide protection against enemy weapons fire and environmental hazards, along with providing unique abilities to the unit wearing it. All soldiers start wearing Kevlar Armor and research/manufacturing are required to gain access to more advanced armor types.
- The Predator and Warden suits only need to be ordered once from Shen, upon which you will have an unlimited inventory.
- Also note that, unlike Enemy Unknown/Within, any injuries sustained will result in recovery time: the suits do not have a health 'buffer', save for the Damage Reduction served by the yellow Armor pips of certain suits.
- It was reported that the difficulty may change the cost of research and manufacturing. Do not take those values as final information.
