The Chitin Helmet is an organic Headgear designed to provide the wearer with protection against certain types of damage.


The Chitin Helmet has the same damage type protections as the main three Security Helmets - except for Concussion - and requires no skill to craft. However, it is not purchasable and its main crafting component, the Chitin Chunk.png Chitin Chunk, is only obtainable from a well-fed and happy Orange Boy Halloween.png Orange Boy.

Protection Values

Likely due to the fact that the Chitin Helmet is made of organic material, it offers weaker protection than the 3 main Helmets.
