Helmets are bullet proof
New, WishlistPublic


If you shoot somebody in a head w/ a helmet on, He/She will survive.
Helmets are for covering the head from flying dirt or stones from an explosion, not a headshot protection.
But even if the helmet shoud take the bullet and dont pass though you shoud die.
Why? Physics - the kinetic energy from the bullet willbreak your neck.

Disable any mods, then try again.

Was a monkey your physics proffessor? modern combat helmets are capable of being bullet proof by moving the kinetic energy from the bullet to the whole helmet, like a bikers helmet. I have seen, several times, people that got shot in the head with guns up to .3008 and (a few times) an 7.62russian and while pretty much shaken, they were fine.

I tested the ECH helmet with a friend in the editor and even 5.56 was penetrating it.
