This guide will tell you how to obtain armor for the main character in Death Stranding. The armor will enhance your defensive capabilities and let you battle the enemies with ease. You cannot equip a full body armor, instead, equip them individually.
The access to armor is available once you complete order number 41. These 4 armor plates can be attached to the shoulder, these can be equipped at Waystation North of Mountain Knot City. 2 at the shoulder and 2 at hips. The armors will be helpful while facing firearms attacks. Most useful while playing on different battlefields like chapters 4, 7 and 11.
As you advance in the main campaign, you can equip Sam with additional pieces of clothing like Bridges Boots, Thermal pad, Oxygen Mask, Power Gloves, and Exoskeletons.
Oxygen Mask – Equip it only if it is required because it drains up the battery fast. It is useful in avoiding harmful and poisonous gasses present at the volcanic locations.
Bridges Boots – 3rd level gives you the best boots
Thermal Pad – Drop in body temperature can reduce the stamina much faster. In order to avoid it in snowy mountainous regions, Therman Pad will help in maintaining the body temperature.
Power Gloves – Most useful but comes at a cost! Drains up the battery much quicker. Helpful in a wide range of activities like faster climbing, increased grip strength, also, gives you better balance while slipping down.
