Thoughts

Fashion is always an issue in San Paro. Luckily, technology has granted us the ability of providing protection without compromising looks.

Previously, Kevlar rarely saw use. But with a rework, this mod has provided a second life to players on the battlefield. Kevlar is mostly seen with LMG users, which makes sense because their weapons require the operator to stay stationary. You might argue that HVRs and longer ranged weapons might utilize Kevlar, but the speed penalty would make players incredibly immobile.

Kevlar combines well with players who utilize car surfer, as this allows them to soak up more punishment. This also solves the mobility issue we had mentioned above. APB is a very fast paced game, so don’t expect speed from this mod.
