It's currently unknown if the shock protection this armor provides will also extend to a Charged Brute's Charged Smash.
This highly futuristic vest was developed by the military to combat one of the more deadly threats of the apocalypse: the Electric Elemental. As advanced as the Faraday Vest is, what is to note is that this vest is quite flammable. While it does prevent a nasty shock, it can't protect you from a simple matchstick.
Between burning to death or being electrocuted to death, people don't know which one is worse.
In the apocalypse, you can never win. You can only get an advantage.

- Consider the map. If it happens to have a lot of glass like No Mercy, consider equipping it.
- Using this while playing on a wide and open map. An attack from an Electric Elemental can come from a surprising distance away.
