No head shots with melee weapons
Only hits to the torso, arms and legs count with melee weapons. Soft foam arrows and javelins can hit the head. Foam rocks only cause damage if they hit the head.
Take the hit
If your arm is hit, you put that arm behind your back. If your leg is hit, you go down on one knee. If your torso is hit, your out.
Armor can cover parts of your body and give 1 extra hit of protection.
