The Federation Exo Helmet is a head-slot armor piece from the Federation Exo Armor set.


The Federation Exo Helmet has different modes that can be switched by long pressing R, the three different modes below are cycled through.

Pulse Mode highlights creatures and other survivors around the wearer in a specific color to show the relationship to the wearer. Tribe members and creatures are highlighted in a green color, neutral players and creatures in white and enemies in a red color. The color of the outline also changes based on the current health of the creature/player, growing darker the more injured the target is. The helmet can scan through walls in a small radius around the wearer.

Night Vision Mode enables the wearer to see in the dark. Unlike the  Night Vision Goggles, the display does not turn white when using night vision during daytime.

A powered full set of Federation Exo armor gives you extremely clear vision underwater in first person
