They're much tougher than regular Zombie cards, though the main danger still came Card Guards, can only be damaged [[BackStab from the halberd back]], and the halberds they used. wield can dish out a lot of hurt. At least they don't resurrect when going down.



** The firearm-using Splicers in [[VideoGame/BioShock1 the first game]] and ''VideoGame/BioShock2'' were known as [[MeaningfulName Leadheads]] both because of their weapons and because they often wore metal masks to protect themselves from headshots. It was possible to use [[MindOverMatter Telekinesis]] to pull them off and then [[HoistByHisOwnPetard throw right back at them]]. The [[BossInMookClothing Big Dadies]] and [[DistaffCounterpart Big Sisters]] are another matter entirely, of course.

* ''{{VideoGame/Borderlands}}'' has variants of some enemies, such as Hardened Skags, which have thick carapaces that reduce damage in certain areas. The Lance Troopers also have armour plating over most of their body; [[BossInMookClothing Badass]] Lance enemies are completely immune to attacks that don't hit their unarmoured points.
** ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' has Armored Psychos in the second playthrough and beyond. Also Juggernauts, even bigger versions of Goliaths with more armor and no weak points. Not to mention Alpha, Elder Alpha, and Fossil Skags, which have tougher and tougher hides; Fossil Skags are effectively bulletproof from the front!

* ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' had the [[spoiler: Fireflies]] in the final level of the game. Whereas the human enemies before were bandits with scavenged equipment, these had military-grade body armour and proper assault rifles. Thankfully, it was possible to sneak past them.

When these guys start appearing, it's better to stop [[BoomHeadshot aiming for the head]] and just [[KneeCapping go for the legs]] instead.



* ''VideoGame/MedievalIITotalWar'' allowed you to do this with just about every troop in the game thanks to the armour upgrades from blacksmith building line. The regular archers and spearmen could go from no armour at all to heavy chainmail, while the Merchant Cavalry could gain heavy plate armour. You could only armor two-three units a turn, however, and this prevented you from building any more new units during it, so it was only worth it if you didnít have the need or the budget for more troops of any kind.
** Having blacksmith pre-built let all the troops recruited from that time forwards get the armor upgrade, which somewhat mitigated the problem.

* ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'': Overlaps with [[GiantMook Giant Mooks]]. The 33rd Battalion had its Heavy Troopers wear bomb suits and aviation helmets, ''then'' have bits of bulletproof vests and other body armour duct-taped onto it. Unsurprisingly, they can barely walk in spite of being 2.1 meter tall, but they require an entire assault rifle magazine, three hand grenades or 2 grenades from underslung grenade launcher to take down. That, and they fight with either [[MoreDakka Light Machine Guns]] or the AA-12 automatic shotguns.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Black}}'' features the shotgun troopers, who wear very heavy padded armor that lets them get in close to use said shotguns, and masks that somehow prevent headshots until they're damaged enough to fall off. The best ways to take them out are with explosives or fight fire with fire and use a shotgun (one shell shoots the mask off, the second kills them). The [[BraggingRightsReward M16A2]] kills them with a single headshot, though.

Your basic {{Mook|s}}, but now with armor. If they already had armor it would either be of higher quality or simply cover more of their body. They may also have better weapons. Because of that, [[StoneWall they will be much harder to defeat, but slower to move]]. [[OhCrap At least]], [[LightningBruiser you hope they're slower...]]

* In ''[[{{Trenched}} Iron Brigade]]'', Breakers are slower than the standard cannon-fodder Resistors, but have a thick armored shell that can only be destroyed with explosives (such as an artillery cannon). Once this is destroyed, their mobility increases and they become vulnerable to most weapons.

* ''VideoGame/Battlefield1'' has these in both the campaign and multiplayer. In campaign, machine gun sentries and flame troopers can be encountered in some chapters alongside regular unarmored soldiers. In multiplayers, there are field kit pickups that can turn the player into a heavily armored soldier armed with either a machine gun, flamethrower, spike club, anti-tank rifle, or grenade launcher. While the armored mooks are exaggerated in their weaponry and durability for the sake of gameplay, there is some historical truth to their existence as some armies did issue plate armor to specialized units during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI.
