|"Ballistic armor is manufactured from electrically sensitive polymer sheets that intrinsically react to the violent impact of a bullet or an explosion by 'stiffening' in response and absorbing the majority of the damage. These polymer sheets must be charged before use; after the charge has dissipated they lose their reflexive properties and should be discarded."|
|— Deus Ex description|
Ballistic Armor is the modern form of body armor in the 2050s, and one of the wearable items in Deus Ex.
Ballistic Armor uses the Environmental Training skill; at Untrained the suit will remain charged for several seconds. At Trained level, they will remain charged 33% longer than usual. At Advanced, they will last twice as long as usual, and at Master level, they last 4 times as long as usual.
