Armor consists of body armor, headgear and masks that Jin Sakai can wear throughout the game. There are a total of 13 (formerly 14) armor sets, 53 headbands, 32 hats, 16 helmets and 40 half masks, and 9 full masks which can be acquired. It should be noted that only armor sets will provide Jin with different abilities and perks; all other gear is purely cosmetic. The different armor equipped favors the style of gameplay – for example, archery fans might prefer Tadayori's Armor and fans of stand-offs might prefer the Sakai Clan Armor.

Every set of armor, besides the Broken Armor can be upgraded to enhance the abilities they provide. Furthermore, each set of armor, besides the Ronin Attire, Fundoshi, Mongol Commander's Armor, Hero of Tsushima Armor and Deadly Rival's Attire will change in appearance upon being upgraded. It should be noted that after the third level has been achieved, further upgrades will no longer alter the appearance of the outfit, but the armor can be changed to it's previous appearance prior to the upgrade.
