"This vest isn't really, SHOCKING! Hahhahahah... Not funny. :("


This armor offers protection against Electric Elementals but does not offer protection against Fire Elementals.

This armor also provides protection against the Charged Brute's Charged Smash and King Cherrycake's sweet shock attack.

Background Story

A very advanced vest developed by the military. It negates all electricity damage and is very expensive to produce. Though intended for combat purposes, these vests has been utilized for more... unconventional purposes, like building infrastructure or sticking a fork into a toaster to prove that the user is somehow immune to all electrical damage, despite the vest only covering the torso. Believe it or not, it somehow makes users completely invulnerable to electricity. However, it's prone to being set on fire.

The first Faraday Vest prototype was tested by select few during a fight against Yeti II. Their criticism of the vest led to the release of the Faraday Vest being delayed for a year.


  • With the addition of this armor, the game becomes a gamble: will you be seeing more electricity in your life, or will you be seeing more fire?
    • Since Elementals must be low on health in order to become electric, they may intentionally damage themselves using glass.
  • You can use this vest to significantly reduce the effect of Radiation inflicted by Tickers.
  • Use this while playing on a wide and open map. An attack from an Electric Elemental can come from a surprising distance away.
  • If you see an Electric Elemental at low health, don't attempt to melee it.
  • In King Cherrycake, this is the most effective armor as it prevents one of his attacks, the Sweet Shock.
  • This armor is immune to attacks from the Boo Buster. Use it to your advantage in Free For All, Party Deathmatch and Undead Battleground.
  • This armor is great for maps that contain lots of glass due to Elementals damaging themselves to turn electric.
