Super armor, a type of armor pickup.

Armor is a reoccurring pickup item in the Serious Sam series.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Armor appears in the form of pickups. When the player has armor, a certain amount of damage is absorbed from each attack. The damage absorbed by the armor is taken from the player's current armor points. This makes it much more likely that the player will survive multiple attacks or one stronger attack than they would without armor.

If the player's armor count is reduced to zero, the player will start taking full damage from attacks again. They can regain armor points by simply picking up an armor item.

Occurrence[edit | edit source]

Armor is common throughout almost every Serious Sam game, with the exception of Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. Large and Extra Large Armor pickups are rarer than ones that give less, and are often found in secrets. Extra small armor pickups are sometimes, but less often than Extra Small Health pickups, used in traps.

In Serious Sam: Tormental, armor is often dropped by enemies after the player performs a brutal kill on them. They can also be found in chests when the player unlocks them with keys.
