Armor is probably to most underestimated piece of equipment in the Survivor.io mobile game. You can have the best weapons in the game or to most effective skills, but without proper armor, you won’t last long against the neverending hordes of zombies.

A good piece of armor gear can not only help your character survive longer, but it can also give you additional bonuses like increased movement speed or fast HP recovery.

That is why we have compiled this comprehensive armor tier list guide, to help new Survivor.io players pick the best armor and clear more chapters with ease.

Survivor.io Best Armor (Chest Plates)

1. Eternal Suit

 Eternal Suit armor Survivor.io
  • Tier: S
  • Green: Revives with full HP once
  • Blue: HP is increased by 15%
  • Purple: After revival, Movement Speed +15% and ATK +15%
  • Yellow: HP is increased by 25%
  • Red: +1 revival

Eternal Suit is the best armor in Survivor.io because not only offers fantastic health buffs and free revives, but also increases your movement speed and attack power upon revival.

This armor is best used when you are going up against powerful enemies or bosses as it can be quite advantageous when having an extra life (even better when combined with other powerful equipment items we ranked in our Survivor.io tier list). You should definitely try to maximize this item as soon as possible.

2. Full Metal Suit

Full Metal Suit, survivor.io armor
  • Tier: S
  • Green: None
  • Blue: HP is increased by 15%
  • Purple: Revive once with 50% HP if defeated
  • Yellow: Revive with full HP, Movement Speed +10%, and ATK +10%
  • Red: HP is increased by 20%

The Full Metal Suit is basically a light version of the Eternal Suit. It offers good buffs and more importantly, it gives you additional revives. These abilities are extremely useful in difficult battles as they may save you some gems.

However, when compared to the Eternal Suit, the bonuses are not nearly as good. Still, it can be a great choice if you are looking for an armor that gives some extra survivability. If you don’t have the Eternal Suit, this armor is a great option.

3. Traveler’s Jacket

Traveler's Jacket armor
  • Tier: A
  • Green: None
  • Blue: HP is increased by 15%
  • Purple: All healing is increased by 20%
  • Yellow: You get healed for 5% on every 200 defeated monsters
  • Red: HP is increased by 20%

The Traveler’s Jacket offers decent buffs and can be useful when dealing with large hordes of enemies. The HP boost and the healing increase can help you survive longer in battle.

While the small heal on every 200 defeated monsters might seem to be a must-have ability, it can only become effective as long as you have picked powerful skills that could help you melt down the hordes. Otherwise, it might be better to go with another armor.

4. Voidwaker Windbreaker

Voidwaker Windbreaker, the best Survivor.io armor
  • Tier: A
  • Green: You gain Berserk for 5s after being defeated. All skill damage can absorb HP (1 time each battle. Resets on revival)
  • Blue: HP is increased by 15%
  • Purple: Berserk duration is extended to 10s. Also immune to damage
  • Yellow: HP is increased by 25%
  • Red: Excess HP is absorbed when Berserk is converted into an energy shield

Voidwaker Windbreaker, although is the latest armor added to Survivor.io, is not the greatest one. The berserk ability, which grants you extra damage for a few seconds upon a revival (presuming you can revive) can be useful when dealing with tough bosses.

Unfortunately, it’s kind of useless because you have to be defeated first in order to activate it. The HP boosts are great though, compared with the other armor, but there are better options available.

5. Protective Suit

Protective Suit armor
  • Tier: B
  • Green: None
  • Blue: HP is increased by 15%
  • Purple: Releases radiation pulse when the hero is hit
  • Yellow: Increased radiation pulse range with knockback
  • Red: HP is increased by 20%

The Protective Suit is also a decent armor to have in the early game. While the radiation pulse can be useful in certain situations, it does not bring much value overall, especially when things become more difficult.

The HP boost is still useful for helping you survive longer in the game, but other armor items offer better stats and bonuses.

6. Army Uniform

Army Uniform armor
  • Tier: C
  • Green: None
  • Blue: HP is increased by 15%
  • Purple: Gain “Inspire” from defeated Elites/Bosses, which heals 3% HP/5s. It fades away when the hero is hit.
  • Yellow: Inspire healing effect is increased to 10% HP/5s
  • Red: HP is increased by 20%

The Army Uniform is a good armor for Survivor.io beginners as it can offer an additional health boost. This armor can be useful in the early stages of the game when you are still figuring out the mechanics, or if you find yourself in a stage with less food around you.

7. Carapace

Carapace armor
  • Tier: D
  • Green: None
  • Blue: HP is increased by 15%
  • Purple: Bullet damage received -100%, +10% for each bullet received. Max 0%.
  • Yellow: With bullet damage reduction active, a storm will blow enemies away and nullify shots when bullets hit the hero
  • Red: HP is increased by 20%

Carapace is the weakest armor in Survivor.io due to its ineffective buffs. The damage reduction you get from bullets might seem nice, but compared to what other chest plates in this tier list offer, it is not worth the effort.

Conclusion

By choosing the right armor in Survivor.io, you can greatly improve your chances of survival and progression in the game. Make sure to refer to this guide when selecting your armor to maximize its benefits and dominate those zombie hordes!
