When equipping my explorers, I figured armor makes sense. But there doesn't seem to be an armor stat in the game. Does armor do anything different, or is it just a SPECIAL boost like other clothing?

  • All outfits boost SPECIAL stats, and each of these help adventurers in some way (though I don't know the specifics). I think Endurance relates to hardiness, though.

  • @GnomeSlice There's already an answer about the effects of SPECIAL on exploration. To be clear, I'm asking if armor does anything beyond SPECIAL. Is there a hidden armor stat?

There is no armor stat.

Armor only works like clothing, in that it increases certain SPECIAL statistics.

That said, when equiptment insinuates a degree of protection, you should usually expect to see Endurance gain.
