Escape from Tarkov Guide – Helmets

Helmets in the game are a mandatory addition to the torso protection, which we talked about in the previous Escape from Tarkov guide – body armor. Perhaps they do not protect as effectively as breastplates, but in the case of Tarkov, any protection is always better than none.

The heads of the characters are conditionally divided into five regions: the crown, the back of the head, the ears, the eyes, and the jaws. A direct hit on any of them means death. The more elements of the head are covered, the more chances players have to survive a headshot.

Headgear stats are marked by durability, movement penalties, number of protected areas (most only cover the top, back of the head, and ears by default), ergonomics, and compatibility with other devices. In addition, there are indicators of sound insulation and a chance of rebound.

The first parameter affects the muffling of external sounds, and the second promises the likelihood that the bullet will bounce when it hits the helmet. The fighter in this case will receive a shell shock, but will not receive damage.

Which helmet do you prefer?

The game provides a fairly extensive selection of options for head protection. As usual, you should pay attention not only to the class and parameter of protection, but also to the chance of a rebound, the price tag, as well as the ability to modify protection or use it with headphones.

In this case, there will be no universal advice for a beginner. Buy what you can afford. Try to pick up protection with maximum coverage, improve helmets and don’t set yourself up – even Vulkan-5 does not guarantee you survival in case of a direct hit to the head.
