Helmets are a type of Equipment in that can be used to reduce damage taken from headshots and attacks, and appear as a circle on your head in the colors blue, gray and black. They may be found on the ground randomly, in crates (especially Soviet crates), in toilets, bank deposit boxes, the Pirate chest, shipping containers, and inside buildings. Helmets reduce headshot damage by their damage reduction value, and also reduce body shot damage by approximately 1/3 as much. Level 1 helmets are common and resemble a motorcycle helmet, Level 2 is uncommon and resemble a military soldier's helmet, and Level 3 is rare and resembles a Spetsnaz helmet.
