"This cheap armor will float you. But not float your way to a happy ending."


An extremely basic vest for protection.

Despite the name, it cannot stop you from drowning. It also can't protect your neck from an Edgar or your chest cavity from a Leaper.

Background Story

These are made from bits of clothing or anything that can soften the blow of a punch.

People like to reminisce about the world before the apocalypse, and the hastily distributed (and made) Lifevest was one of the first things that they received to help them survive just a little bit longer for rescue to come their way.


  • Only use this if you cannot afford the Firevest.
    • It is a direct upgrade only costing 5$, granting additional resistance to Fire Elementals.
    • During rounds where Fire Elementals aren't around, such as Bosses and Quests, the Lifevest is better due to lower cost.
  • This does not make you float on water or prevent you from drowning in any way.


  • Cheap
  • Low Ranked


  • No Resistances
  • No Extra Ammo
  • Low Extra Health



  • Health changed from +25 to +15 circa v0.5.9.
  • Renamed Health to Lifevest in v0.4.8.

  • This was the first armor in R2DA.
  • It is unknown why the health this supplied was lowered from 25 to 15, but the Crab Armor came around this time with similar stats to this.
  • The Lifevest has the same model as the Firevest, just red instead of yellow.
    • Whenever a player zombifies, a bug will occur where this vest will turn green, similar to the shade of the zombie's skin colour.
    • As both vests use the same model, this bug applies to both iterations.
  • This is close to looking like the Flak Vest from R2D 2014.
