The Gas Mask is a type of clothing featured in The Last Stand: Union City.

DescriptionEdit

Worn over the face to protect the wearer from "airborne pollutants" and toxic gases.

BackgroundEdit

The first modern gas mask appeared in 1849, where U.S. patent 6,529 was given to Lewis Phectic Haslett of Louisville, Kentucky.[1] However, it was not until the First World War that the military took much interest in gas masks, where chemical warfare was first used. Initially, soldiers cupped a urine-soaked cloth over their nose to protect themselves from the toxic air, until a mask made of chemical-soaked material was invented that covered the entire face. Modern gas masks use absorption and adsorption to filter out hazardous materials in the air, reducing the weight and bulkiness of earlier masks, and are commonly used by police during riots, by scientists that study volcanoes, and by graffiti taggers.

Difficult to find on the civilian market, but are usually handed out by the military if the situation calls for it.

EffectsEdit

The Gas Mask is purely cosmetic and has no effect on gameplay. Wearing it is just a personal choice.
