Can a ballistic helmet stop a crossbow arrow?
Well Twang N Bang has a helmet and a powerful crossbow to try out this test.
Watch and see if a crossbow can actually penetrate a ballistic helmet.
This HighCom Security Striker ACH IIIA ballistic helmet is one tough target. Can the world's most powerful production crossbow, the Scorpyd Ventilator Extreme, penetrate it?
First off is that ballistic helmets are made to protect against bullets and shrapnel fragments. A fast moving arrow with a sharp tip is one of the hardest projectiles to stop. This extremely powerful crossbow punches right through the helmet and deep into this zombie's head. That looks like it just has to hurt.
Most of us will never hunt deer or other large game that is wearing ballistic helmets or body armor. It is good to know though that arrows can penetrate through remarkable barriers and get the job done.
