Hard-plate reinforced bulletproof vest, able to absorb various types of impact damage. Can be expandable with holster and additional pouches. — In-game description

The Plate Carrier is a piece of modular clothing in DayZ Standalone. This vest is typically found blank, but can be equipped with Pouches to allow for 24 slots of space and a Gun Holster for the storage of any handgun.

This vest has a strong combination of ballistic protection and lots of carrying capacity, with the downside being that you will likely have to do a lot of searching to find all of its individual pieces.

Notes[]

  • The Plate carrier has received a strong buff in version 1.12, increasing protection and durability. Before the update it was possible to die from a single powerful shot that hit at the right angle and spot. Now the plate carrier protects the survivor much better. Taking multiple hits on the vest now results in being knocked out, rather than the survivor dying. Also, taking a hit from a high caliber round will make the player stagger for a moment and cause them to make a similar animation as if they were hit by a heavy melee attack. For comparison, before it only took ~4-5 shots from 5.56mm rounds to die with the vest equipped, now it takes ~9-10 5.56mm rounds. However, if the player becomes unconscious, they might probably be killed during that time, if they do not have anyone to protect them.

Trivia[]

  • The Plate Carrier was previously known as the Ballistic Vest and was removed in a prior version of the game. It was added again in the 0.54 update.
