Armor is protective equipment worn by Guardians to deflect damage and prevent injury. In game, armor is divided between multiple slots that correspond to a different body part, and can have unlockable upgrades that can provide further benefits during combat, especially with rarer pieces. Armor pieces that offer more protection also tend to be rarer.[1]

See Category:Armor Sets for a list of all armor sets, and see Category:Armor for a list of all individual pieces of armor.[2]

Slots

Armor is divided into slots, with each slot corresponding to a different body part.[3] All player classes can store and wear armor in five (six at Level 40) armor slots that are common across classes:[3][4]

Only one piece of armor can be equipped in each slot at any time, while more pieces of armor (and/or engrams) can be stored in inventory for each armor slot.[5] Only one exotic armor piece (excluding some class armor) can be equipped at a time.
