The Fortress is an Outfit Archetype in Brink.


The Fortress is an outfit for Resistance characters, unlocked at level 18, that takes the form of makeshift body armor. It's one of few Archetypes to feature Head, Face, Jacket and Pants items.

Face Gear[]

The Face Gear is a mask which bears a striking similarity to a paintball mask, complete with eye protection and filter.

Head Gear[]

The Head Gear is a Military style helmet with a (optional) carved tally and some paintwork


The Jacket is a heavily armored vest with several pouches and a bandolier containing a knife.


The Pants are a pair of armored cargos, that appears to be held together by multiple strips of duct tape.


  • Some of the color schemes for Head Gear have artwork that reads "Born To Kill", which is a reference to the movie Full Metal Jacket. The writing has been crossed out to read "Born To Die".
  • The Face Gear for The Fortress was originally planned to be for Security.
  • The Fortress can be seen as the Resistance equivalent of The Bomb, as they both have heavy armor plates, and The Fortress's jacket appears to be a somewhat hacked up version of the vest from The Bomb's Jacket with a missing shoulder pad and added utility belts.
    • In addition, The Fortress's Pants, Head Gear, and Face Gear appear to be crude imitations of The Bomb's Pants and Head Gear.
