Helmets Not just cosmetical?
I often see helmets fly of when hit in the head. Does that mean helmets provide a 1 time protection to the head? Or is it really only cosmetical?
I like my non-helmet Viking look, so this is a very important question to me :) Thanks beforehand, much karma upon ye!
If it’s anything like Chiv 1 (where the same thing could happen with an arrow whizzing by your head) I believe it is just a cosmetic, and doesn’t actually give any extra survivability. I believe it was more or less just to let you and the archer know it was a ****ing close shot!
As far as I have seen Moderators say, helmets are just cosmetic and offer no protection as such.
You can still be one-shot if someone lands a heavy blow to your head, even with a helmet on.
Hope this helps, man. Happy Viking. :)
