Platinum helm
Actor type Armor Game MiniHexenLogoIcon.png (Hexen)
DoomEd Number 8007 Class Name PlatinumHelm
Spawn ID 70 Identifier T_PLATINUMHELM

Classes: InventoryArmorHexenArmorPlatinumHelm
The Platinum Helm looks just like the helm worn by Baratus and Zedek: a typical fantasy helm, open-faced and with a noseguard and horns.

It increases a Hexen player class's Armor Class by a certain amount:

  • +3 for Baratus the Fighter
  • +2 for Daedolon the Mage
  • +1 for Parias the Cleric

In Hexen, it is designed to be used with the Amulet of Warding, Falcon Shield and Mesh Armor, but if imported in another game only one piece of Hexen Armor can be used at a time.

In Hexen.wad, the sprite is actually named ARM3A0 and is renamed at load-time by ZDoom.
