Guns of Boom offers a bunch of gear, some of which is specially obtained through boxes or events and others can be bought normally. In this section we will cover all of the normal gear that is, make no mistake, very useful and shouldn't be underestimated at all. Basically there is: Head Gear, Torso Gear and Pants. Almost every piece of gear offers a unique passive ability ranging from Healing to blatantly reducing damage received. Make sure to keep upgrading your gear because the reduced damage is a MUST have especially as your rank and level increases since most opponents will start having very strong weapons that will rip through anyone who hasn't got the gear required. The gear cost grows exponentially as you increase its rank so make sure you use your Gunbucks sparingly in preparation for these important upgrades. Of course, buying Gunbucks and upgrading gear beyond what ftp gamers can achieve will boost your advantages on the battlefield drastically. Unfortunately what happens often is that a player with a bit lower rank can just buy a bunch of gear and for some time will play against people who have a much lower gear rank than them resulting in unfair play. However, need not to worry about this since most of them will skyrocket into higher ranks so they'll be out of your hair shortly if you're a ftp player.
