I was on Basrah today, in the building east of mosque (near those market things) when an RPG gunner shot his pistol at me from a roof top across the street. He hit me five times, all of which where apparently stopped by my body armor (it made that sound). Didn't save me from the following RPG round, but I was revived from that.

Body armor DOES save lives, though I do wonder how it works in game? Like is there a % chance to stop, or how does it work?

It just reduces the amount of damage per hit you take.

And since you were being hit by a measly pistol....

if you survive a burst from an AK47 or G3 between 2 and 10 meters from you then i think you could say it saves lives lol

that "sound" of the bullet hitting your armor is the bf2 hitboxes being retarded.
yeah... i took 3 .50cal bullets to the head and survived the other day ;)

Heh well that fact just made the game seem significantly less cool...I was trying to make it seem cooler by equating it to body armor saving my life but ok.
