A very heavy iron hat. As with other eye-slit based helmets, it offers fantastic protection but you can't see a damn thing.

Slot: HEAD Type: Heavy Armour

Crab Helmet is a Heavy Armour that is equipped in the Headgear slot. It is the headgear with the highest blunt resistance. Aside from the races that cannot wear helmets, it additionally cannot be worn by Hive Worker Drones and their southern and deadhive cousins. It can be crafted once a blueprint is purchased from the Crab Raiders and is part of a Crab Armour "set", together with Crab Armour (body), Crab Trousers and Crab Shoes.

This armour has inventory dimensions of 3x3.

Appearance[]

The Crab Helmet appears to be a thick, metal Jingasa attached to a metal cylinder with a long, wide slit for the the wearer to see through.
