A heavy combat helmet is a military helmet that fully encases the head with heavy ceramic armor. It has a transparent ballistic visor that protects your eyes and face from gunfire without impairing your field of vision, and it includes heavy cushioning for the head and spine to prevent traumatic brain injury (TBI) that commonly results from being in the blast radius of an explosion. Even in most combat situations, it is unusual for individuals to be wearing a heavy combat helmet; it is generally reserved for operators who need extraordinary protection against explosive weapons, and for point men in door-breaching situations. A heavy combat helmet has built-in hearing protection, providing advantage on saving throws against being deafened by loud noises. It also has attachment points for night-vision devices and flashlights.

Partial armor only grants its AC bonus if you are wearing light or no armor. If you are wearing only one piece of partial armor, you are still considered to be wearing your base armor type (e.g. no armor or light armor). If you are wearing two or three pieces of partial armor, you are considered to be wearing the heaviest type of partial armor worn (e.g. medium or heavy armor). You cannot wear four or more pieces of partial armor.
