Kevlar Vest is a Soldier Ability.


Kevlar Vest increases your damage resistance while you are a Soldier. Enemies equipped with Armor Piercing rounds can still do full damage to you.


Players using this gain some extra resistance against bullets; reducing all incoming damage by 20%. Enemy Soldiers using Armor Piercing Ammo negate this bonus completely though.

Despite saying otherwise in the game's description, Engineers can buff Soldiers with Extra Kevlar as well. The effect is only half as effective though; adding 10% resistance to the Kevlar Vest's 20%.
