In Modern Combat 5, each character loadout includes a suit of Armor comprised of 4 parts (helmet, torso, arms, legs). Each suit is comprised of 4 parts (Helmet, Torso, Arms, Legs) which can equipped via the loadout screen.

Each individual armor part gives the player a specific amount of bullet and explosive protection; the total amount from all 4 pieces equipped is stacked and applied across the entire suit of Armor; helmets do not provide any additional protection, however each helmet provides its own unique perk (e.x. the Kitsune armor helmet provides the player with increase melee attack range when equipped).

Each suit is ranked from Tier 1-5 (with higher-tier suits offering more bullet and explosive protection, as well as more slots for equipping Armor Cores).Each character class comes with a basic suit of Armor by default, but the player can unlock new armor parts by purchasing Armor Packs. Some high-tier armors, such as the Oni and Kemono armor, can only be acquired from Events. (While the Paragon armor parts only become available by increasing VIP level). Players can also rent suits of armor with Credits (with the exception of the Oni, Kemono, and Paragon armor).

In addition, the player can attach Armor Cores to their Armor suits, which provide special enhancements and benefits. Each complete armor suit has between 2-5 slots for equipping Armor Corese, with each slot corresponding to a specific Core type (Offensive, Defensive, Utility). Some high-tier armor suits also have Joker slots, which can equip Armor Cores from any category. Players can equip any custom combination of armor pieces they wish, however the player must have a complete suit equipped (e.x. the complete Ares armor) in order to equip any Armor Cores.

Armor and Armor Core benefits take effect in multiplayer modes only. In Non-ranked matches, players have the option to disable Armor Core and Helmet benefits, as well as to limit armors by tier.
