Headwear for melee?
« on: January 24, 2021, 09:36:24 pm »
The balaclava seems like to be the only choice. Btw, does the "mechanical damage threshold increased by 200% against bullets" apply only to the given item, or the DT of the character? If the second, does it stack?

Balaclava, the detection goggles, and shaded metal helmet is all good choice for melee. Balaclava is obviously the most neutral for melee, because you need that alpha strike.
Detection goggles is useful for some cases, but mostly for detecting traps (you usually won't have enough to detect Stalkers). Shaded metal helmet is useful if you're playing knife or close-quarter pistol build, since you could throw flashbang under your feet, immune from its effect, and starts Execute / Cutthroat your enemies.
Might be a cool idea for John Wick character tbh.
