Class 3-good early game
Steelpot (H ricochet, M durability)
6B47 (H ricochet, L durability, Lower hearing)
Kiver-M (M ricochet, H durability, Lower hearing)
LZSH (M ricochet, M durability)
Sfera-M (M ricochet, L durability, Lower hearing)
UN helmet (H ricochet, L durability, easy to spot)
Devtac Ronin mask (L ricochet, very expensive)
Class 4- very good early and mid game

Mich TC-2002 (M durability, H ricochet)
Striker ULACH (H durability, H ricochet)

Maska ISCH/Killa version (M ricochet, L durability, low visibility)
Altyn (5, L durability, H ricochet, lower hearing)
Vulkan (6, H durability,H ricochet, bad movement)
use steelpot for small budget
use 6B47 for mid budget
use Kiver-M close quarters
use LZSH for big budget
use Striker Ulach for price/strength
use Fast MT and Frye Airframe for attachments
use Maska ISCH for huge face protection
use Altyn for best full head protection
use Vulkan for close quarters
As this is very summed up, I made the the durability and ricochet, into L,M,H, not accounting for the materials.
All of the info in this was taken and summed up from the YouTuber J Dog th3 wise, if you want to understand everything more in depth and you don't want a cheat sheet for when you are ingame, watch his video.
I will update the post with any suggestions I get.
I did no add the class 2 helmets because naturally you will throw them away.
