  • On the lower game difficulties and for Rookies, the option to equip a Nano-Fiber Vest should be weighed against the tactical benefits of a grenade: clearing cover, killing multiple aliens and making new room entry points.
  • On the higher game difficulties, the Nano-Fiber Vest is a critical stop-gap armor necessary to increase soldiers' survivability until Carapace Armor is unlocked.
  • Once available, Chitin Plating provides superior bonuses to the Nano-Fiber Vest.
