The Plasteel armor is the first armor type that players unlock. It is by far, the weakest and least efficient armor only used by players under level 15. They are quickly made obsolete by Tritanium and later Iridium. It is recommended that beginner players immediately attempt to obtain Tritanium armor. Plasteel is very, weak and is only used primarily by beginner level players. Plasteel II is used for instant repair Rancor battleships.
