All of the Fallout 4 Armor and How to Get Them 

Fallout 4 Power Armor

One of the most entertaining things about Fallout 4 is the inclusion of Power Armor.  Now, each of the games has their own version of Power Armor, but Fallout 4’s version allows you to customize each part to your specifications. Need a jetpack? There’s a mod for that. Want to see Vault Boy in your headlamp? There’s a mod for that. Want to be pretty in pink? There’s definitely a mod for that. 

There are four types of power armor. T-45, T-51, T-60, X-01, each in varying conditions, with and without a fusion core. The version of power armor that spawns depends on what level you are when you come across it, as well as a game-set algorithm. Some places will spawn only T-45 and T-60, while some will only spawn X0-1. So, here’s all of the Power Armor in Fallout 4, what types, and how to get them. 

29. T-45 Power Armor, Concord 

Entering Concord triggers the first Minutemen quest, which ends with you fighting a Deathclaw in the streets using a set of T-45 power armor with a missing left arm and right leg. You'll be asked by Sturges to retrieve a fusion core in order to power the suit, which is located under the building behind a security gate. It is the only power armor set in the main game that isn't leveled.  

28. Crashed Vertibird Between Rotten Landfill and Covenant, leveled 

The Rotten Landfill and Covenant. Though they're filled equally with garbage, a direct line between the two holds a nice little underwater surprise. Right below the surface, downed vertibird, is a nearly full set of power armor. Though it's missing its right leg, it does come with a fusion core, so you won't have to grab one or use your own.  

27.  Forgotten Shack, leveled 

Between the Forgotten Church and Federal Supply Cache 84NE is a location marked Abandoned Shack. It's a rundown house at the edge of the Glowing Sea, so make sure to stock up on RadWay and Rad-X.  Grab the key and head inside where you'll find the set under the stairs.

1. The Prydwen, T-60 

Joining the BOS allows you to have your own set of T-60 power armor. There are other sets of armor, but using any sets besides your own counts as stealing.


Nuka World 

Fallout's DLCs come with their unique sets of power armor, and Nuka World is no different. Here, you'll find some neat sets of armor, including a set with a special paint on it, just for you! 

6. Overboss Armor, full set 

After running The Gauntlet, you'll come into an old hockey arena and find yourself in a rigged battle with the raider gangs' Overboss, Colter. Colter's armor is impenetrable, meaning you'll want Gage's help to battle him. Take the Thirst Zapper and use it against Colter, and if all goes well, you'll find yourself with a set of unique armor that deals energy damage. Make sre to also grab the Power Fist that comes with it.

5. World of Refreshment, T-51, full set 

In the World of Refreshment, head down the Quantum River until you come upon a set of caged power armor on the right-hand side. Nearby is a hole in the wall that leads to a set of stairs leading up to a control room. Use the security terminal to unlock the power armor set. Head back down the way you came and the door will be open, where you can own your very own set of Nuka Cola Power Armor. Now if only we could get some real Nuka Cola.

Head inside the plant, down the stairs, then up the scaffolding into an office, then to the right. In a cage, you'll find a full suit of X-01 armor.  

3. Beneath ruined sign near Nuka World Power Plant, X-01 

Head southeast to a ruined billboard that has a bunker where you'll find a full suit of X-01 power armor behind a security cage. Open the cage and grab the suit.

2. Quantum Power Armor, X-01 

This set of power armor is the most difficult to get. In order to get this set, you'll need 35 Star Cores from around Nuka World, then you'll need to remember there's a console right behind the glass where the power armor is. Once you've gotten all 35 of the cores, head to the Nuk World Power Plant and head to the very tippy top and activate the Park's power. Head back to the Star Command center and use the terminal to free the power armor. Congratulations!  

Bradburton House, X-01 

To the far east is a strange little house where you can see inside the windows, but all doors are blocked and the garage is chained shut. Head down to a nearby sewer pipe, leading into the house. Inside is a full set of X-01 power armor.

Far Harbor DLC

The Far Harbor DLC is my favorite addition to the Fallout 4 game. Not only are you meeting new characters, hearing a new score of music, and learning new lore, you get a full set of Vim! Power armor. 

 National Park Visitor’s Center, Vim! T-51 full set 

If you fast travel to this location, turn around where you land and head around the bushes. Otherwise head slightly north following the main road. There will be a Vim! Truck with a full set of T-51 power armor inside. 

 Vim! Factory, X-01 Vim! Refresh full set 

Head to the top of the Vim! Pop Factory and go through the double doors at the very top. Go straight across the scaffolding and into the room where you'll find a snazzy suit of Vim! Refresh power armor! 

MS Azaela, Raider Armor 

Raider Boss Bilge is in posession of this armor. If you want the frame for this, you'll want to sneak up while he is sleeping and take it/kill him or sneak the fusion core off of the set. 

Honorable Mention  

In the far eastern part of the map, there is a set of power armor hidden in a cave beneath the waves of Far Harbor. You can't get this armor, but you can see the silhouette outlined in some rocks. 


Tesla Armor, chest and arms 

Head to the Fort Hagen Satelite Array and finish the dungeon, finding Ivy at the end. Now, there's only three piecesof this armor, but together they give a bonus of 15% more damage with energy weapons.   


Enjoy your new sets of power armor!
