  • The actual level of protection given by a single item of Clothing is 1/5th of the value displayed in the game.

  • All protection values in the game are presented as a percentage.
  • The range of protection values show are affected by the quality and current durability of the item.
  • The skill of the player with that type of armour will also have an effect on the protection level that is given.
  • Displayed Protection Values represents the value of Mining Helmet as shown in the game.
  • Actual Protection Values represent the value of Mining Helmet on their own.

Usage[edit | edit source]

To equip a Mining Helmet use these directions.

  • Open your crafting menu (Default key I ).
  • Use the tab selector at the top of the screen to open the Character Menu.
  • Place the Mining Helmet into gear slot 1.

Flashlight[edit | edit source]

The Mining Helmet is equipped with a head lamp that can be activated at any time. The lamp does not need a power source and will not run out of power, it is especially useful for Mining or late night raids. As of Alpha 18 the light may not be functional and will require the helmet light mod to work.

  • To activate the head lamp press the flashlight key (Default key F ). Holding the flashlight key will give you the option to turn on the headlamp or a pair of night vision goggles if you are wearing them.
