    REBEL SUIT

    [​IMG]

    The rebel suit has a kevlar vest covering the chest, in fact its really similar to the Civil Protection suit (even using the same vest). Most rebel suits will most likely have been scavenged from stolen CP suits.


    The rebel suit has leg pads covering the thighs, and it also has an arm pad covering the right upper arm (or left, depending on which hand is your dominant one)

    Where should you attack one?

    When attacking someone in a rebel suit you should generally avoid the chest area, aim for weak points like the stomach, groin, knees, elbows, and if possible go for the head seeing as it is usually unprotected.



    CIVIL PROTECTION SUIT
    [​IMG]


    As mentioned earlier the Civil Protection is really similar to the rebel suit, the only difference being the lack of leg/arm pads.

    The CP suit has a kevlar vest covering the chest, it also has a mask made of tempered plastic and a hood made of metal, while they wont stop a bullet they'd most likely be able to soften the blow from a sharp or blunt object. The CP suit also has steel-toe boots, similarly to the mask it wont stop a bullet, but could stop a sharp/blunt object.

    Where should you attack someone wearing this?

    When attacking a CP or someone wearing a CP suit, you should avoid the chest area or head, again aiming for the weak spots. It is harder/near impossible to differentiate the sex of someone wearing the suit due to the vocoder and mask, therefore attacks to the groin have a chance of being less effective. Otherwise aim for the stomach, knees or if you have a bladed object aim for the gap between the CPs faceplate and chest at the base of the neck/head, where they are unarmoured.

    OTA SOLDIER SUIT
    [​IMG]


    The OTA soldier is extremely armoured, having a kevlar vest that covers their chest, stomach and back, multiple arm and leg pads that will be able to stop a bullet, they also wear a combat helmet, in contrast to the CP mask that is made of plastic their combat helmet is most likely fitted with kevlar or twaron for extra added protection.

    E: @cloudperson has informed me that OTA has armour everywhere

    Where should you attack someone wearing this?

    The person wearing this suit is going to always be an OTA soldier, which means they will be extremely armoured and highly skilled, if you were forced into a situation where you have to fight them you should generally aim to escape, and if thats not an option your best bet is to aim for the knees, wrists or elbows seeing as they are the least armoured parts of the soldier.

    seeing as how they're used to make the rebel suit its probably the same type of vest, doesnt really change much other than the clothes

    wow that is crazy autistic

    i think anyone here who has actually worn a gasmask for extended periods of time can tell you that wearing a gasmask as is, is uncomfortable

    i couldn't begin to imagine the fucking hellish experience wearing a heavy piece of plastic on your face would be

    god thats such a stupid fucking idea

    I think it being referenced as "made from tempered plastic" was just a way to explain the fact that (though probably stylised and shoved through 2004) the masks are weirdly and consistently angular whereas as far as I know there isn't a gasmask that does that IRL because they're soft rubber.

    Rabid, gasmasks can have angular areas/structure that are still made of soft rubber
    [​IMG]

    Everything on this mask, bar the mouth piece, filter and adapter unit plus glass is rubber

    everything


    the gasmasks they have in-game are literally re-purposed old soviet masks, which were meant to be carried by infantry at the time

    do you think carrying heavy, non-foldable/packable, and highly uncomfortable gasmasks is good for both equipment weight and comfort?

    Nah ofc not I'm just saying I doubt most people have ever worn one for an extended period nevermind seen anything similar to just how jagged the CP mask is and made assumptions based off of that.

    well that assumption is stupid and i hate it

    they're rubber, and that's that unless a valve guy comes out and gives them some mystical properties that sets them apart from literally every other gasmask ever made
