Your Best Armor

The armor and clothing items which are shown here is based on Legendary Armor found at the end of the game. While most players who are still working their way through the story won't be able to obtain them, there are some that are found in specific locations or NCPD hustles.

As Cyberpunk 2077 has a high turnover for armor, the strongest armor for most players will be the ones which you found recently at your current level. Find armor which matches your Perks, and which has the highest Armor stat!

Aside from the best end-game armor, there is plenty of strong armor and clothing to be found throughout the game, so choose the ones which best match your specific playstyle!

About Armor and Clothing Stats

As explained in detail in our List of Clothing, there are no individual stats associated with specific Clothing items.

The Armor stat depends on the Body Part and the player level when the Item was found, as well as their Crafting Skill Progression if it was crafted. The number of Mod Slots depends on the Rarity of the Clothing.

For this reason, there is no real “Best Clothing“. In theory, the Best Clothing in the game is any Legendary clothing which was crafted by the player at level 50 with a Crafting Skill of 20, and with a pinch of good luck from the RNG fairy.

We've added a list based on our own confirmations of the best Legendary Clothing with the max number of mod slots, but keep in mind that other players' lists may feature entirely different items.

    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?
