The red variant wears a reddish hood with an open coat with leather armor and wears leather boots and a brown sash around the chest and has diamond buttons. They are often seen carrying a Mountaineer Pick in which they use in their attacks. The black variant possesses light-green eyes, and the red variant possesses black eyes like the Arch-Illager.

Armored Mountaineers behave like normal mountaineers do, running up to the hero and attacking them via melee, with their picks.
When in contact with wind, they place their picks down into the ground to avoid being pushed off. They have better stats than the normal variant though.
Beta Armored Mountaineer
The Beta Armored Mountaineer is an unused variant that only appeared in the DLC's beta version. It's outfit is similar to the Rampart Captain.
In beta versions, there was a light red variant that wore a light red hood with an open coat with buttons and white accents around the edges and wears dark-greyish boots and a brown sash around its chest. This variant was replaced by the red variant and currently the Rampart Captain replaced this model.

- As with the Armored Vindicator and Pillager, Armored Mountaineers also have gold and diamond variants.
- The Armored Mountaineers are the only illager soldiers that don't have blue eyes, and one of the few that doesn't work for the Arch-Illager. They are also the only mob, where the variants all have different eye colors.
- The Rampart Captain is a Diamond Armored Mountaineer, but with an Ominous Banner and without the leather armor.
