- “Head wear used for sun or bite protection. Adds armor.”
- – Blueprint description
"Head wear used for sun protection. Hardly used for something serious."
The Dad Hat can be obtained from enemy NPCs in green, yellow, and red zones.
The Dad Hat is a tier 1 clothing item that the player can wear. It provides the least armor of all clothing items in the game, not including the Snorkel Mask and the Gas Mask. It is useful for farming green and yellow zones.
The Dad Hat is relatively easy to make, and can be made on the fly in a zone if the player kills enough enemies.
Enemy AI will sometimes have the Dad Hat when attacking the player, and the hat will have varying durability based on how many hits the player has done on the AI player.
Equipping Dad Hat increases armor by 2.
