In short

  • items have health and are damaged only with explosions,
  • item health is viewable by pressing LEFT ALT in inventory screen,
  • item health does not affect its efficiency,
  • only prime-able items detonate upon destruction,
  • items' location on a soldier affects damage reduction (soldier's armour does not matter).


Carrying places

Back pack is the safest place to carry items (only 17% damage penetrate it). Items in hands suffer 30% of damage. Items on the ground of level one suffer 100% of damage. Items lying on the ground on any other level suffer zero % of damage due to bug.
