"Reactive armor that deflects enemy bullets away from the body. Still vulnerable to headshots and non-bullet damage while active."
— Description

Kinetic Armor is a Specialist Ability for Battery in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The player is given charged electrically-reactive armor covering only the body, that sublimates enemy bullets on contact, turning them into a vapor which dissipates harmlessly. A player wearing Kinetic Armor can be distinguished by a metallic looking armor covering their body, and a different hit sound upon damaging them.

Kinetic Armor adds a flat 150 health bonus to the player while active. The armor only protects the body against bullets; it does not protect against melee, headshot, incendiary or explosive damage. Almost every specialist weapon will bypass the Kinetic Armor. Once the player has been damaged for 150 health or the specialist meter runs out, Kinetic Armor will be disabled.
