At what point should I buy Kevlar in CS:GO? I have a very bad habit of constantly rebuying kevlar every round during a match, and it really drains my funds quickly.

At what point is it safe to rebuy armor?

    If you're rebuying kevlar every round, then it sounds like it's saving your life.

  • If my armor goes down from 100 to 95, and I rebuy, I think at that point it's kind of a waste of money.

  • once my kev reaches 75 or lower I usually buy again

Armor, as long as you have it, will have the same reduction regardless of how much. Example: 50 armor reduces bullet damage just as much as 100. The only time you need to rebuy is if your armor will drop to 0 during the round (2-3 bullets worth) since 0 armor provides no bullet damage reduction. Rule of thumb typically is around 40, you should rebuy.
