Development

The Mandible Helmet is first spotted in a leak in Alpha 3.11.1, though it was not available for players. For a time, it was only available to CIG developers and has been seen in live builds by players who sometimes get to use it (though it doesn't stay in a players inventory).[3] It has the same color scheme as the then-released FBL-8a light armor set.[4]
