With this Fallout 4 gear, you can keep yourself safe from the many risks of the Commonwealth.
In Fallout 4, you need armor to protect yourself from all of the threats that the creatures of the wasteland will try to do. The best way to stay safe from the dangers of the Commonwealth is to wear power armor, which is a big set of metal armor that runs on fusion cores. Power armor has always been the most important part of the Fallout series.
You can find a few different sets and unique pieces of power armor in Fallout 4 and its add-ons. You should know what each one does so you can choose the one that works best for your build.
The Best Power Armor For Beginners
Power Armor is hard to get, and it’s even harder to use because it needs fusion cores to work. You can get the T-45 Power Armor suit in Concord by following the main questline until the “When Freedom Calls” quest. This is the easiest piece of power armor to get.
You can get the Tesla Armor if you want an easy-to-wear set of unique power armor. This suit has a torso and two arm pieces. Each of the arm pieces makes your energy guns do more damage. You can get the Tesla Armor by clearing the Fort Hagen Hangar, which is a part of the Automatron DLC and can only be accessed through it.
The Best Power Armor Modifications
There are a lot of ways to change your power armor in Fallout 4, but only a few are really useful. The Jetpack is the most important change because it lets you fly and get to high places in the Commonwealth.
Aluminum, glue, asbestos, and nuclear material can be used to make a Jetpack for a Power Armor body. To make a jetpack, you need to get the Armorer perk to level 4 and the Science perk to level 4.
The Tesla Bracers are also a powerful upgrade because they let you use your unarmed power armor hands to deal energy damage. This upgrade is great for a build that doesn’t have any weapons. Its mix of power armor and damage from things other than weapons is a unique idea.
Once you have unlocked the third level of the Blacksmith perk and the first level of the Science perk, you can make the Tesla Bracers with Aluminum, Adhesive, Rubber, and Copper.
Atom Cat Power Armor Paintjob
You can paint your power armor in many different ways, but the Atom Cat Paintjob is one of the best. This paint lets you run three percent faster, and if it’s on every piece of your power armor, it adds a point to your Charisma stat.
Rowdy lives at the Atom Cats Garage, which is in the southeast part of the Commonwealth. He will sell you the Atom Cat Paintjob.
Exemplar’s T-60 Power Armor Torso
If your build is focused on VATS and Power Armor, the Exemplar’s T-60 Power Armor Torso was made for you. This defense piece cuts the amount of Action Points you have to spend on VATS by 10%. Also, T-60 armor is strong on its own, which makes it very useful for fighting high-level enemies.
When you finish the “Duty or Dishonor” task for The Brotherhood of Steel, you get the Exemplar’s Power Armor Torso. To get the Exemplar’s Armor piece, you need to get Clarke to turn himself in.
Vengeance T-60 Right Leg
Vengeance is a piece of power armor for your right leg that lets you return 10% of the physical damage that an enemy does to you. This lets you hurt an enemy even if you get hit by them. The piece of Vengeance Armor is for sale on the Prydwen by Proctor Teagan.
T-60 Armor is one of the strongest sets in Fallout 4, so if you want the best damage defense you can find, you should use the Vengeance Armor. This piece of armor is most useful if you use melee weapons, since other melee weapons are more likely to hit you while you’re out adventuring.
Tessa’s Fist, Raider Armor Right Arm
Tessa’s Fist is a piece of Raider Power Armor, which is one of the rarer kinds of power armor in the Commonwealth. The result of this armor is that it lasts three times as long, so you won’t have to fix it as often.
In Fallout 4, you can get Tessa’s Fist by beating Tessa at the Quincy Ruins. The fight with Tessa will be hard, so make sure you bring your strongest tools.
Vim! Power Armor
Vim is a unique drink that can only be found on the island of Far Harbor. It tastes like Nuka-Cola, but is only sold there. The Vim Pop Factory has a full set of this power armor.
The Vim Armor gives you one more point in Strength. Even though this isn’t the most powerful set of power armor in Fallout 4, the extra strength stat point is very helpful if you use unarmed or close weapons.
Piezonucleic T-45/T-51 Torso
The Piezonucleic Torso is one of the few pieces of Power Armor in 8 Ball Pool that can be worn by itself. This piece of armor is a reward for finishing the quest “Cambridge Polymer Labs.”
The special effect of the Piezonucleic body is strong, but you have to be willing to walk right into a cloud of radiation to use it. You can get more Action Points more quickly while standing in radiation because of this affect. Depending on how high your level is when you finish the “Cambridge Polymer Labs” side quest. The Piezonucleic Torso will be either T-45 or T-51.
Honor T-60 Left Leg
Every player in Fallout 4 uses Action Points for VATS and running. Which is why the Honor Leg piece is so useful for a VATS build. It gives you a bonus to the rate at which your Action Points are refilled. This means that your AP will be refilled much faster.
After you finish the Brotherhood of Steel side quest “Blind Betrayal,” you get this piece.
Visionary’s T-60 Helmet
Fallout 4 doesn’t have a lot of different Power Armor caps. The Visionary’s Helmet is one of the few. And it gives you a higher-than-average defense rating and a faster rate of AP recharging.
The Visionary’s Helmet is another piece of Power Armor that can only be worn by members of the Brotherhood of Steel. It is a prize for completing the “A Loose End” quest.
Quantum X-01 Armor Set
The Quantum X-01 Armor set is one of the Power Armor sets that can only be found in the Nuka-World DLC. The X-01 armor is pretty good because it makes the user less likely to get hurt.
The Quantum X-01 Armor set gives you high damage protection and a beautiful light blue color scheme. It also lets you get AP back much faster than usual when you have all of the pieces on. In Nuka-World, the Galactic Zone is where you can get the Quantum X-01 Armor.
Tesla Armor Set
The Tesla Armor set is made up of three pieces: the body, the right arm, and the left arm. All three of these special pieces give a 5% boost to energy damage, and they all look different as well.
After beating Ivey in the Fort Hagen Hangar, one of the Automatron DLC’s special places, you get this set of armor. Find and put on the Tesla Armor set as soon as you can if you use energy weapons.
Nuka T-51 Armor Set
Some unique pieces of armor in Fallout 4 give you a +1 bonus to one of your special stats. However, if you wear every piece of the Nuka T-51 armor set. You get an extra 3 points for your agility number. This set of Power Armor has one of the best paint jobs in Fallout 4—if you like Nuka-Cola, that is.
The Nuka-Cola armor set can be found in the Bottling Plant, one of the Nuka-World DLC’s five main draws.
Overboss Power Armor Set
The Overboss set of Raider Power Armor is one of a kind. And the torso piece is one of the most powerful things in Fallout 4. The Overboss Power Armor torso deals energy damage to enemies near you. This is helpful when facing multiple enemies close to you.
You can easily get this set by beating Colter at the start of the Nuka-World DLC.
