The Moloch Shell Fragment is an Outerwear that protects the wearer's torso. It is dropped by Molochs.


The Moloch Shell Fragment is only obtainable from defeated Moloch.pngMolochs, 33% of the time.


Compared to the Body Armor icon.pngBody Armor, the Moloch Shell Fragment is generally more resilient and provides more types of damage resistances. However, it also slows down the wearer's movement speed by 40%, just like the Diving Suit icon.pngDiving Suit. The Diving Suit offers lower protection values overall, although it covers the entire body, while the Moloch Shell Fragment only covers the torso.
