Do body armors have any effect on the head? Is it better to use hollow point ammunition when targetting a body-armored enemy's unarmored head?



  • I'm just wondering if Fallout New Vegas is like Skyrim, where wearing an armor on one body part will protect other body parts (regardless if armor is worn on that body part).

    In FNV, do body armors have any effect on the head? Will it be better to use hollow point ammunition (does more damage to unarmored opponents) on an enemy with body armor, but no helmet or head armor or other head apparel when targetting the head?



  • It's been a long time, but if I remember correctly, the armor you have is armor overall, but the Head gets a reduced amount from the armor based on a percentage, and headshots have a multiplier, I believe 2x damage.

    So the Armor does help your head, but with a diminished effect. As for Hollowpoint rounds, I think that so long as you can see skin/flesh you're fine.
