Armor was a class of powerful items used in Blaseball that tremendously increased the defensive abilities of their wielder.
A player was only allowed one piece of armor at a time (similar to Legendary Items), which could be seen in their inventory on their player page.
All armor pieces seen served as protection against the effects of weather and were granted as the result of blessings from the end of a season's elections.
All existing armor was removed at the start of Season 15 by The Boss with the introduction of the new item system.

The Fireproof Jacket was first seen as a blessing in Season β5's election, where it was awarded to Hades Tigers hitter Mclaughlin Scorpler. However, Scorpler also won the Noise-Cancelling Headphones immediately after, and because a player may only possess one piece of armor at a time, the Fireproof Jacket briefly vanished. It would later reappear in Season β7's election, now being offered up as Mclaughlin Scorpler's Memorial Fireproof Jacket. It was granted to Jesús Koch
Another jacket appeared as a blessing in Season β6's election, this time being granted to Oliver Mueller of the Seattle Garages.
The Noise-Cancelling Headphones were given to Hades Tigers hitter Mclaughlin Scorpler at the end of the Season β5 election. Scorpler had been given the Fireproof Jacket immediately prior and lost it in favor of the Headphones; this is the only known instance of a player losing their armor in favor of another piece of armor. Scorpler still has his Headphones, even in retirement.
Later, as a result of the Season β10 Elections, the Charleston Shoe Thieves all received individual Noise-Cancelling Headphones. The fourteen players are: Blood Hamburger, Cornelius Games, Esme Ramsey, Fitzgerald Wanderlust, Gunther O'Brian, Hotbox Sato, Howell Franklin, Richardson Games, Sebastian Woodman, Simon Haley, Snyder Briggs, Stu Trololol, Velasquez Alstott and unfortunately, Tillman Henderson.
In Season β6, Breckenridge Jazz Hands hitter Steph Weeks was given the Gravity Boots as the result of a blessing of the same name.
