Absolver Guide: Mask Locations

There are tons of masks to find in Absolver, but it's not always clear how to get them. Our exhaustive guide is here to help you find them all and learn what they do!

Absolver is all about the combat, and as any player knows, an integral part of combat is your armor.

The game includes masks as part of its armor sets, and there are multiple masks to try and hunt down or earn, either for their stat bonuses or if you are trying to put together that perfect ensemble to make your Prospect stand out above all the rest. Whatever your reason for trying to find them, we've put together an exhaustive list of Absolver's masks, where to find them, and what their stats are.

Stats

If you're just getting started and aren't completely sure what the types of stats are, here's a brief introduction.

Protection is exactly what it sounds like and determines your defense. Cut and Blunt are different types of damage a weapon deals, and which type depends on which weapon. Finally, there's weight. Too much weight drags your Prospect down, reducing mobility and attack damage, so it's important to keep in mind when putting your armor together.

Event or Location Specific Masks

The masks in this first set are found in set locations or upon meeting specific requirements. Some of them are also found as random drops, but since they are rare, your best bet is to find them in the world.
