Sunglasses Tips & Notes

  • Despite their appearance, the sunglasses are not really any less protective than their fellow Operator Class head gears.
  • Some security guards can be seen wearing these, though they do not count as head armor and cannot be obtained by removing their heads.
  • Obtaining the sunglasses will grant you the Sunglasses at Night achievement.

      People are saying these work giving you your set bonus still, but I walk into those toxic clouds with sunglasses and liquidator set and still get damaged

        I don't know if this was covered but I seem to have a gear bonus of.the armour I'm wearing minus the head gear as long as shades are on.

            I wouldn't mind these staying as***** as they are if they at least granted the set bonus of your chest plate like certain armour pieces do in Monster Hunter. It'd be nice to wear them just for the damage percentage boost and aesthetic, being that I don't really use the drone.

              I certainly hope these are buffed in a future patch because despite being the 2nd most badass looking headgear (black cerberus being the 1st) they are entirely useless. Aside from removing any possibility of having a gear set bonus, they also increase drone costs by 100% making them wildly inefficient at literally everything.

              • Note: I'm unsure whether you actually DO need to skip or botch Jo's quest to get these, or whether you can complete the quest and return later. I myself accidentally skipped Jo entirely and got them, which lines up with a few other comments I've seen.
