Armor is the most obvious point of contention in 1v1 Quake matches. How does it interact with health mathematically in preventing damage?

1 Answer 1


Armor absorbs 66% of the damage and 34% of it (the damage) will be removed from health. This formula will apply until all of your armor is absorbed and then all the damage will be directly hitting your HPs.
