The Cyclops Bandana, providing a whopping 7% speed increase.

Speed Gear is any equipment that improves the player's speed.


The player's natural speed is limited by the amount of gear and weapons they carry on hand. Conversely, speed gear provides mobility in order to offset that burden, ranging from boosts of +1% to +16%.

Many different items can provide speed boosts, but it is commonly added through gear—such as vests, head items, and face items. Mercenaries have varying speed boosts based on their unique vest.

Speed gear sees its highest use in game modes such as Quarantine, where speed is valued over protection.

Ironically, speed gear is actually more useful in other modes - as players often cannot make full use of their armor protection regardless, while a lighter vest can be deterimental in Quarantine, as players will have less health as an Infected.
