Health and Armor Upgrades are collectible items in Wolfenstein: The New Order, which boost B.J.'s maximum health and armor pickup value. They appear as small soldier figurines, and are related to the chosen gameplay timeline.
The effects of these upgrades are cumulative and will carry over into the other timeline. Players have to complete both timelines in order to collect all Health and Armor Upgrades.
Health upgrades appear only in the Fergus timeline. Each collected upgrade boosts the player's maximum health by 10, up to 200 (if all 10 upgrades are collected). They are often located in areas accessible only in this timeline (behind locks that need to be hotwired).
At the Kreisau hideout, Health Upgrades can be spawned by sleeping on one of the beds on the second floor (the one in the room with the flower buckets hanging from the ceiling). When B.J. wakes up, the red figurine will be on the improvised nightstand by the bed. If the upgrade has already been collected for this chapter, a large medpack will spawn instead.
Armor upgrades appear only in the Wyatt timeline. Each collected upgrade increase the armor value gained from armor pickups by 10%, up to a maximum of 100% (if all 10 upgrades are collected). The player's overall maximum armor value remains 100. They are often located in areas accessible only in this timeline (behind locks that have to be picked).
At the Kreisau hideout, Armor Upgrades can be spawned by using the workbench in J's room on the first floor. If the upgrade has already been collected for this chapter, a large suit of armor will spawn instead.
