"Engineered for maximum accoustic impedance to minimise blast trauma, but thickness can impede gun handling."
The Hadplate Gauntlets are a pair of gloves in SAS: Zombie Assault 4. True to what they say, they are one of the most powerful armors in the game, but come with the price of a slower reload time and slower movement speed. These gloves are not worthy of using for fast reloading, super fast movement speeds, and outrunning bosses with the full Hardplate set.
This armor piece is not recommended for the mission Vaccine, though it can be used to beat it unless you have the full set, in which case you are screwed and will most likely be blown to bits with the zombies you are trying to kill. It is also not recommended for unless you are going for a massive tank build, in which case this is perfect; for the massive reload penalty (worse than the helmet of the Hardplate series) and can possibly stop instant reloads of guns (or near instant reloads).
Now using this armor piece has its drawbacks, it also has one of the highest armor stats of any gloves, beating many pieces for this rank, in both normal, and variations, making these almost perfect for those mega tanks that carry Propositions like they're SMGs, and reload it about as fast as a normal AR, should find these very useful in those cases, also good for high levels who face savage bosses for fun nowadays.
