Types of Armour Edit

Kenshi categorizes Armour into three different categories, depending on weight.

Light Armour Edit

Light Armour is armour which weighs less than ?? kg. Light Armour is likely to have bonuses to Combat Stats. Because of this, Light Armour is recommended for characters early game.

Medium Armour Edit

Medium Armour is armour which weighs from ?? kg to ?? kg. Medium Armour offers more coverage than light armour and less than heavy armour, but without the latter's skill penalties.

Heavy Armour Edit

Heavy Armour is armour which weighs a lot. Heavy Armour offers the most armour coverage, but also has negative effects on stats. This armour is favored by high level military members.
