Introduction: Body Armor

Picture of Body Armor

This is a Body armor made out of knex. It was meant to look like a SWAT armor. You can move propperly in it.

Step 1: The Shoulder Straps

Make these things. Connect them as you see on the photo. And repeat this to make the straps longer.

knex armour is pointless in a war because its like paintball, u get hit and ur out, amrour wont helo u not getting hit

mettaurlover (author)koal12010-02-20

Yes. But the point of armor in K'nex wars is both to make it not hurt as well as providing an easy way to attach weapons to your body. Why do you think they allow some body armor in paintball? So you don't get badly injured. This can happen with K'nex guns, namely anyone who is stupid enough to get between me and my destination, as well as anyone stupid enough to get between a K'nex cannon and, well, whatever it's pointed at ATM. In many cases, the ammo from a K'nex gun will go spinning, so the small bit of separation and solidity provided by the armor could stop you from getting hurt. A lot. For example, my favorite type of gun can shoot a lightly sharpened piece through almost a centimeter of solid plastic at point blank, while at three feet it can't get through that amount of cardboard. Even a slingshot gun's ammo spins, wobbles, deviates from its course enough that simple armor could stop you from getting a hole put in your torso by the jerk who brought a sniper rifle and sharpened ammo to the war. In short, don't doubt the usefulness of armor in any case. And anyway, in many cases a war has points, or simply a number of times you can get hit with a particular type of weapon before being out. It's much more complicated than paintball. For example, it's often done in small enough areas and teams that you know when the game is over and recognize your teammates. Paintball, not so much. Shot my teammate in the back. After the game had ended.

Four times.

Master Chief helmet. But to be honest, what type of 'special person' is going to shoot someone in the face with that?

The Jamalam (author)knexguy2009-03-23

yeah. the aerodynamics of the master chief helmet must be terrible!

knexguy (author)The Jamalam2009-03-23

LMFAO! And it's not often I use acronyms. Yet another example of how things can be percieved horrifically differently than how they were meant to be.

travw (author)knexguy2009-06-03

I'm sorry for the slight spam but, what does 'LMFAO' mean?

knexguy (author)travw2009-06-04

Laughing my ****ing *** off.

travw (author)knexguy2009-06-04

Thank you.

barrett50cal (author)The Jamalam2009-05-28

i made the master chief helmet and i put an antenna on top and it hit almost hit the ceiling because i was using gray rods and orange connectors....

jurgenp1 (author)SeMi_AuToMaTic2009-05-13

I haven't made a helmet already. And to be honest I don't know how to make one too

knexguy (author)2009-03-16

Not sure how effective the arm protection would be ;) Not bad, but not really any use in a war.

Bartboy (author)knexguy2009-03-16

Depends... It would be great against something like I_A_Cs cannon!

knexguy (author)Bartboy2009-03-17

Not sure whether that was sarcasm or not...

Bartboy (author)knexguy2009-03-17

And you never will be....

knexguy (author)Bartboy2009-03-17


necropolian (author)knexguy2009-03-19

yes...everything can look happy, sarcastic, bored, funny and insulting at the same time on the internet...DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

knexguy (author)necropolian2009-03-19

As a matter of fact, I found the capitalisation at the end of your sentence insulting! :o (Not really)

necropolian (author)knexguy2009-03-20

hmhm...i took a scientific (not scientologic!!!) look at it , and my conclusion is this: communication exists of various elements working together to exclude any mistakes. if any element is unclear, or even absent, the communication becomes ambiguous, so it can lead to potential arguments. hmm...i need to make other statements like this...

knexguy (author)necropolian2009-03-21

Lol, scientologicalism is spreading. Don't you just love adding random pre- and suffixes to words :)

necropolian (author)knexguy2009-03-23

if you love pre- and suffixes, check out the star trek language klingon. for the verbs, there is one type of prefix and there are 9 different types of suffixes, which must appear in the correct order! the nouns have 5 types of suffix (also in order). the prefix and the suffix are the main base of the language... and what about 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!'?

knexguy (author)necropolian2009-03-23

How about flockynockynihilipilification? (The spellchecker doesn't like that one...)

necropolian (author)knexguy2009-03-24

and what about "KrungthepmahanakhonAmonratankosinMahintharayutthaya MahadilokphopNophosinRatchathaniburiromUdomrathaniwetmahasa Amonphima AwatansathitSakkathatiyaWitsanukamprasit"?. hmm, the spellchecker is a bit depressing with this one too....

SeMi_AuToMaTic (author)knexguy2009-03-17

Ha i know, right?

knexguy (author)SeMi_AuToMaTic2009-03-17

That is a very annoying thing about the internet...

SeMi_AuToMaTic (author)knexguy2009-03-18

ha so true.

The Jamalam (author)2009-03-15

so how would you impliment this in a knex war then? Because if you couldn't get hit then that would be incredibly biassed.

jurgenp1 (author)The Jamalam2009-03-15

I'm new aroud here so. and i think that it will be very usefull in a knex war. Not yout entire body is protected only your brest

The Jamalam (author)jurgenp12009-03-15

ok. but it would cause arguments about hits etc.

dsman195276 (author)The Jamalam2009-03-15

i would use it if your using powerful guns. a DD-27 shot from 30 feet would still hurt, even though the target it a fair distance away.

Bartboy (author)dsman1952762009-03-16

YaY! You agree. The chances of the bullet hitting the armor, and the bullet hitting in between the armor are about 50/50, so this is good. It would also block cannons!

jurgenp1 (author)The Jamalam2009-03-15

yes that is true.

agent harmsy (author)The Jamalam2009-03-15

Two words. HEAVY CANNON lol

lord voldamort (author)2009-03-16

i made this highly concealable ammo belt for green rods. perfect for anyone with a small pistol

KillerPanda (author)2009-03-15

nice 5 stars and faved!!

Storm950 (author)2009-03-15

Pretty substantial, lol.
