For the spell, see Armor (spell).
Armor is a mechanic in Shadowrun.
Overview[edit | edit source]
- The maximum amount of armor without spells or cyberware is 10.
- Outfits are the primary means of obtaining better armor. There are Spells that can increase armor or reduce it by a fixed amount (Leylines only increase duration). Cyberware can also increase armor.
- In Shadowrun Returns it makes characters harder to hit, but does not reduce damage.
- From Shadowrun: Dragonfall to Shadowrun: Hong Kong it reduces damage taken by a character at a rate of 1 per unit of armor.
