Defensive Upgrades are one of 3 Upgrade types.
Defensive Upgrades are upgrades that decrease stats like damage taken and increase stats like healing. They are usable by the Engineer, Juggernaut, Ninja, Medic, Mercenary, and Elite classes. The unique heroes Wesley, Nathan, Tower, Dex, Fatale, Mayday, and Evelynn can also use these upgrades.
Like other two upgrade types, defensive upgrades have their Equipment form that can be added to the armor. All defensive upgrades that have their equipment form can also be won on the Slot Machine in their upgrade form.
