Armorskin gland

Armorskin gland

This bionic gland releases chemicals and nanomachines that toughen the skin and add flexible subdermal keratin plates at strategic points. This makes the user more resistant to damage across their whole body. Unfortunately, These changes make the skin appear leathery, with wrinkles across the whole body and face, which is generally considered ugly.

The Armorskin Gland is an implant added by the Royalty DLC that gives the host pawn natural armor, in exchange for making them uglier and slower. It is the middle option of the three skin gland implants, with protection and penalties between that of the toughskin and stoneskin glands.

Acquisition

It is made with Plasteel 20 Plasteel and Advanced component 6 advanced components at the fabrication bench, after the Skin Hardening research is completed. The required techprint can be obtained either by trade or completing quests for the Empire. They require a crafting skill of 8.

Summary

Pawns that are implanted with a armorskin gland gain a bonus to Sharp/Blunt/Heat Armor by 52/20/40% respectively, considered as its own layer for the purposes of armor calculations. It also reduces pawn beauty by 1 and multiplies moving by a factor of 90%, a 10% reduction. In turn, the penalty to moving reduces the move speed, hunting stealth, and melee dodge chance of a pawn.

Analysis

It provides a noticeable amount of protection. Keep in mind that armor penetration usually negates a part of the implant's armor rating, making it less protective than expected.
