Extra Kevlar is an Engineer Ability.


Extra Kevlar allows you to give your teammates additional armor protection that lasts until they die. You cannot administer this buff to yourself, or to a Soldier who already has the Kevlar ability.


This allows an Engineer to decrease the damage that their teammates take by a small amount (20%). It is administered like a Weapon Buff, by throwing them the upgrade. As such, the Engineer needs to be close enough to the target in order to reach them.

Although stated otherwise in the in-game description, Engineers can buff Soldiers who have the Kevlar Vest ability. The effect is only half as effective though; adding 10% resistance to the Kevlar Vest's 20%.
