Escape From Tarkov Best Armor – Tier List

Check out here to know what’s the Best Armor for you to wear in Escape from Tarkov.

Survival is the general rule of thumb when you are playing Escape from Tarkov. While you can purely rely on your skill for that, I suggest you get a little help through Gear and other equipment. As we are speaking of it, I could not think of a better way than wearing an Armor to increase your survivability. I mean, they surely do decrease your movement speed but in exchange, provide a great deal of resistance against incoming attacks.

Currently, there are over 20+ Armors available, excluding Helmets that contribute a lot to your protection too. So it might get a little overwhelming to opt for any particular one. Moreover, not all of them will offer you the same amount of resistance. And that is why, I think this Escape from Tarkov’s Armor Tier List can help you plenty. So let’s get started, shall we?

Here’s How I Created the Tier List

While creating our Escape from Tarkov’s Armor Tier List, I first filtered out armor that provided higher resistance. After that, I considered the weight of the Armor as an important factor as well. That is because, if you get encumbered after wearing armor, then your movement speed will reduce ridiculously.

6B43 6A Zabralo-Sh Body Armor

Also, not to mention that all of these Armor protect only some parts of your torso. For example, our top pick, the 6B43 6A Zabralo-Sh body armor protects your Chest, Stomach, Arms, Neck, Throat, and Groin. These parts of the body are more likely to get hit by a bullet. And with its insane durability of withstanding 350 damage, you can outlast everyone on the map. As an exception, we neglected its weight as this armor’s protection range and durability compensate for it.

In case you want to get your hands on a different Armor, you can study everything about it in detail on Escape from Tarkov’s Fandom.
