Overview

Helmets are headwear that provide protection against damage from spikes, players, mobs and fires when equipped. However, they don't help reduce the cold, like the chapkas - this means players have to sacrifice one advantage for another by wearing headwear.

Helmets are generally used for combat, especially since they seem to protect more against other players as opposed to mobs. Once equipped, there is a timer of several seconds before you can de-equip the helmet. This is something to keep in mind in PvP or hunting, especially in the cold winter biome.

To craft helmets above a wood helmet, players are required to use a workbench.
