  • Foot and Ankle
  • Lower Leg
  • Knee
  • Thigh
  • Hip
  • Groin
  • Belly/Lower Abs
  • Upper Abs
  • Chest/Rib Cage
  • Shoulder
  • Upper Arm
  • Elbow
  • Forearm
  • Wrist and Hand
  • Neck
  • Lower Face
  • Upper Face
  • Sides and Back of Head
  • Top of Head


There are also a few areas that need special consideration:

  • Buttocks - This is not on any damage tables but damages the same as a thigh, though it is protected by the armor of the hips.
  • Back - This is not on any damage table but damages the same as a chest or ribcage, and it is often protected by the armor of the chest as well, but not always.
