I dont know why people do this sometimes. My heavy sniper still delivers a 2 shot kill.

Could maybe absorb an extra hit from the marksman?

It depends on the rounds being used against you.

Explosive will deplete the entire armor and leave you with just under a quater of health.

Standard rounds will deplete the entire armor but health depends on where you were hit.

Hollow-Point will deplete health and armor simultaneously so again, it could be a one shot kill depending where you were hit.

I wear armor everywhere I go. I have a macro to quick refill my armor if I get hit by a sniper no matter what type of ammo being used. I don't mess around but It is always a good idea to wear armor in a public lobby.

Same.
I only use these during heists...
In PvP it's almost useless, unless you hope to raise a little bit that KD thing.....and there are better tools for that.

Having armour will prevent the Heavy Revolver Mk.2 with Hollow Points one shotting you... Just saying.

I don't use body armor.

I just pop those P&Q's.

I rarely wear it except for in heists.... and possibly if I am doing a CEO work and I really want to avoid dying for some reason or another (but with aimbot NPCs it doesn't seem to help that much).     I just can't see the point against other players since everyone is using weaponised vehicles and explosives anyway. 

 

I assume the people who wear armour in free roam are those who are really into PvP gunfights and care about winning or losing?  Otherwise it seems like a lot of hassle to go to given that you can only hold 10 at at a time and it depletes really quickly.

In free roam the only time I really bother putting armor on is for a little extra insurance on sales missions or when I'm defending against a raid. I also buy it before missions, I figure if it lets me be that much more aggressive or survive a mistake, it makes things smoother and more fun overall so its worth the minor cost.

 

Definitely agree that it isn't worth the trouble of putting on for PvP. If I had a macro, maybe, but I'm on PS4 so that's a non-factor.

Meh. But most of my deaths are by explosives rather than bullets.

Most K/D warriors I see on PS4 are over Rank 100 and prey on lower levels, abusing the health gap. Don't need armor when you have a fraction of your griefer's HP + SH Armor.

I'm scared trash so I just allahu akbar myself when I lose a tiny little shiver of health when a bullet tickles my pinky toe.

 

Wait, why did I post such a stupid comment???
