Best armor in Dying Light 2

The best armor for when your back is against the wall!

There are many different ways to build Aiden up to your playstyle in Dying Light 2. This list provides a detailed breakdown of some of the best armor pieces you can use for your build. There are four different classes of gear in Dying Light: brawler, tank, medic, and ranger. Our breakdown will help you get the best gear you can per class. You can get these armor sets from looting storage containers, stores, or farming biter hordes. Most players will stick to an armor set from a single class, but if you mix these gear items, you will be more balanced for every situation Dying Light 2 can throw. That said, here is the best piece of armor for every class.

Best armor for Brawler in Dying Light 2

Paratrooper Boots (Artifact Sneakers)

The Brawler gear is not very sought after by regular players, as it does not increase stats in the later stages of the game that can be too helpful. The Brawler class can help with the stats for one-handed weapons if you are looking for a fast-paced fight, especially with a slow weapon. This gear will also add stats to your damage resistance across multiple enemy types, which is useful when ambushed by both.


  • Damage Resistance (Human Enemies)—+8%
  • Damage Resistance (Infected)—+5.7%
  • Stamina Cost (Melee Weapons)— -9.9%
  • Stamina Regeneration—+10.5%
  • Damage (1 Handed Weapons)—+9.9%

Best armor for Medic in Dying Light 2

Surgeon Apron (Artifact Chestpiece)

The Surgeon Apron is a level 9 Medic Chestpiece. This Chestpiece is a sought after piece of gear because it allows the wearer to access health regeneration and damage resistance. It does a significant amount of stat increase to Aiden. This cannot be topped when it comes to healing effectiveness and health regeneration. 


  • Survivor Sense Duration—+7%
  • Healing Effectiveness—+11.8%
  • Damage Resistance (Day)—+8.8%
  • Stamina Cost (Parkour)— -12.6%
  • Damage (Parkour Attacks)—+11.4%
  • Health Regeneration Speed—+12.9%

Best armor for Tank in Dying Light 2

Hi-Tech Guards (Artifact Bracers)

The Hi-Tech Guards reach a level 9 in the Tank Class. It's safe to say that you will need a Tank class gear piece equipped on Aiden. Tank class can give you a marginal increase in offense-based stats, such as boosted damage and resistance for more significant damage. This piece of gear is crucial to add to your build.


  • Stamina Cost (Melee Weapons)— -11%
  • Combat XP—+4.3%
  • Damage Resistance (Electricity)—+11.1%
  • Damage Resistance (Infected)—+8.1%
  • Damage (2H Weapons)—+7.1%

Best armor for Ranger in Dying Light 2

Steady Aim Gloves (Artifact Gloves)

These level 9 Gloves for the ranger class are the best in the set, with none of the stats giving a minus stat to your build. It has a solid boost throughout all the stats, and because the Ranger gear is suitable for ranged weapons and health boost, this gear is a vital piece to have equipped.


  • Stamina Regeneration—+6.1%
  • Recognition Time—+5.1%
  • Survivor Sense Duration—+12.5%
  • Survivor Sense Range—+10.3%
  • Damage (Ranged Weapons)—+7.1%
