Does BP helmet have any effect vs NPC's?

Alright so we all know by now that the BP helmet reduces damage taken from headshots by other players...does it have the same effect vs NPC's as well? Or do NPC's just damage the same no matter where they hit you? I've been wondering about the mechanics of this for awhile.

it's basically impossible to test

a modder could probably find out

Hmmm well I know that a headshot is not a one-hit kill from an NPC, regardless of whether or not you have a BP helmet...and pretty much what the BP helmet does is stop headshots from being a one-hit kill within headshot range in PvP. So if there is an effect, it is probably pretty mild compared to the PvP effect.

 

You're right, there's really no way to test it. Some people have a way of looking at the source code from the game though and figuring out stuff like this.

NPC's do not have a headshot multiplier, so any extra protection the helmet would provide would be almost entirely unnoticable.

I guess if you threw it at them, then yeah I'd think they'd be pretty pissed.

The answer is simple, npc's never aim for the head.

 

True, but their aim is all over the place, so they will occasionally hit you in the head randomly. They will even leave wounds on your face sometimes when they do. I have definitely been headshotted by NPC's before...there was once I actually saw multiple spurts of blood come out of my head after I stuck my head out a bit too far from cover and literally ate several bullets at close range. Didn't kill me though, surprisingly.

Thank you! I believe this answers my question.
