Need help rigging my model properly and the Helmet won't rig. Thanks!

Hey guys,

Yeah, so I’m a beginner Blender user and I’ve been following a couple of tutorials to attempt and rig this but I can seem to get the helmet to rig at all. Then after I parent, some of the little pieces on the arm are coming off when I move the arm. I attempted to scale the entire model and rig to Location, scale, and rotation and still, the helmet won’t rig and arm pieces fall off. Any help with this would be amazing!


You probably used autoweights? Autoweights don’t work well for multiple, separate meshes. You’ll need to weight these in some other way. Probably, via assignment to head bone for the helmet. For other separated bits, consider separating to new object and weighting via data transfer modifier copying weights from the main mesh.
