Junk turns into armor.

Some of the most important gear items in the Call of Duty DMZ are the 3-Plate Vests that were introduced to the mode at the start of Season 3. Each one provides a unique buff that caters to play styles such as stealth or support, and the easiest way to obtain one of the Plate Carriers is to craft it yourself with the Barter System. Here’s all 3-Plate Vest Recipes in Call of Duty: DMZ listed.

Keep in mind that the Tempere Vest can’t be crafted in Al Mazrah and the Stealth Vest can’t be crafted on Ashika Island. However, the Koschei Complex also offers another way for players to craft these vests, but it will be more difficult and the materials are unique to the area.

Koschei Complex 3-Plate Vest Barter Recipes in COD DMZ:

  • 3-Plate Medic Vest – 1 Tattered Lab Notes, 2 Delta Boards
  • 3-Plate Stealth Vest – 1 Chlorine, 1 Server Tape Black
  • 3-Plate Comms Vest – 1 Server Tape Orange, 1 Formaldehyde
  • Tempered Plate Carrier – 1 Acetic Acid

Of course, you can always take the Plate Carriers from other players in the DMZ by eliminating them and looting them, but that’s another road entirely. Not every player will have a specialized vest, and if they do, they are likely carrying much more dangerous equipment to keep it secure from other players on the prowl. If you can, I would look for other Comms Vests, especially because they are the most powerful in the game and I have save more than a few matches using it.
