Raider armor is a name that refers to various types of armor worn by the more savage tribes of raiders. More rational, civilized raiders, like the Khans, wear typical leather armor and other regular types of armor.

Variants[edit]

Body armor[edit]

Raider badlands armor[edit]

Gameplay articles:

Badlands armor consists of a bandolier worn on top of a stripped-down pair of overalls and various bits of leather and metal arranged to protect the joints. It is worn together with mismatched makeshift boots, a philips-head screwdriver strapped to the left ankle and, of course, the raider wastehound helmet.

Raider blastmaster armor[edit]

Gameplay articles:

Blastmaster armor was constructed with protecting the user from explosions. It uses elements of quilted material to shield thighs and the torso by distributing the explosive force over a greater area and boots reinforced with metal to protect the legs. The arms are covered by makeshift protectors, crafted out of pieces of metal fixed to a tight sleeve scavenged from another source and an arclight helmet stitched to a band. This outfit is worn with a raider blastmaster helmet

Raider sadist armor[edit]

Gameplay articles:

The sadist armor consists of a corselet or bodice of stiff brown leather and studded trousers, with long leather gloves covering the arms, ending slightly below the shoulder. An armored pad is worn on the left shoulder, while the other is bare. Raider sadists usually carry two severed human hands as trophies, hanging them dwon from the hip.

Raider painspike armor[edit]

Gameplay articles:

This suit of armor has been cobbled together from salvaged car parts and elements of vintage football gear. The spiked plates protecting the shoulder and thighs are in reality automobile floor mats, with rusty nails and wood screws driven through them to deter attackers. Limbs are protected by fragments of corrugated aluminium held together by nylon seatbelts, while the torso is barely covered by a salvaged metal grill. This rather random assortment of defensive elements is complemented by a football groin protector and two carpet installation kneepads. The suit is typically worn with a raider psycho-tic helmet.

Raider commando armor[edit]

Helmets[edit]

Raider arclight helmet[edit]

Gameplay articles:

The raider arclight helmet resembles a welding mask. Interestingly, this item does flatten the character's hair as if they were wearing a normal helmet.

Raider blastmaster helmet[edit]

Gameplay articles:

Blastmaster helmets are pre-War firfighter helmets, worn together with a flame retardant hood and a hazardous environment filtration mask.

Raider wastehound helmet[edit]

Raider Wastehound Helmet.png
Gameplay articles:

Wastehound "helmet" is sown from two pieces of heavy burlap crudely stitched together around a pair of desert goggles. Raiders typically pull strands of their hair out through openings in the burlap to create a more menacing appearance. Males typically create three tufts (two on the sides, one on top), while females create a makeshift mohawk by pulling hair out through the stitching.

Raider psycho-tic helmet[edit]

Raider Psycho-Tic Helmet.png
Gameplay articles:

Supervisor helmet[edit]

Behind the scenes[edit]

In the movie Mad Max 3, Max is hired by Auntie Entity (played by Tina Turner) to "take care of" the sub-chief Masterblaster. As an obvious nod, these armors strongly resemble that worn by various "less scrupulous" characters in the Mad Max trilogy.
