Power Armor is all over the Fallout 76 map and is a bit different then Fallout 4. This article documents all of the power armor locations we know about. Do you know of another location? Send us a comment or a tweet and let us know the details and we'll add it and give you a shout out.

A couple of things you should know about power armor in Fallout 76. First, the armor spawns and respawns so if the armor isn't there, but the cage and related items are, check back later. Second, you can wear any frame, but you'll have to carry the pieces if you aren't high enough level to use them. For more info like how to farm power armor and fusion cores check out our Power Armor Tips for the Early Game

Power Armor Locations

1. Morgantown Train Yard

You can find the Morgantown Trainyard Power Armor to the east of Vault 76 and decently close if you want to get power armor immediately.

If you're looking on the map, it is almost directly on top of the icon for Morgantown Trainyard.

If you come in from the south, you will see some train cars and a big building. Directly to the right of the big building is an open train car that has "USA" painted on it. Inside this car is the power armor.

2. Morgantown Mama Dolce's Food Processing Plant Power Armor

The actual town of Morgantown is slightly southeast of the trainyard.

You can find Power Armor in a booby-trapped shack down a hill behind the food processing plant. There are mines around the power armor, ground spikes at once entrance, and a doorway trap at another entrance.

3. Eastern Regional Penitentiary Power Armor

The next location is a little further into the Fallout 76 map, but still not too far out if you don't want to go back to the first two locations or have already made your way past them.

This Power Armor is "guarded" by Super Mutants I've seen as high as Level 16, so you must be careful.

This is to the north of Morgantown trainyard/station. If you look on the map above, it's the blue icon toward the top, northeast of Highway 59 and west of the mountains, the dam, and the lake region in the northwest corner.

If you enter from the east side of the icon on the map, you will see an open gate area and a truck. Go this way in you will see the shack with the Power Armor slightly to the left as you pass another gate.

4. Arktos Pharma

Arktos Pharms is northeast of Flatwoods at the top of a hill or mountaintop. The build has an entry way with wrecked trucks in it. A fusion core is through a hackable door to the back left. The power armor is upstairs on the third floor. The room with the power armor is actually visible from the front of the building on the side with the truck garage.

Armorsmith Extended

\n

Get It Here

\n

This is one mod that packs a hell of a punch with a ridiculous amount of content for clothing, creating more options outside of power armor. Allowing outfits to be worn under armor and bandannas to be worn with helmets is a big boon on its own, but that's just the least of what is offered here.

\n

A ridiculous number of new outfits are added in, and now every single piece of clothing is moddable, increasing the armor crafting options to an exponential degree. You can also completely change Nick Valentine's appearance, as the option becomes available to equip him with all this new modded clothing.

Clean Power Armor HUD

The HUD noticeably changes when you get into power armor, which makes sense, but some people really don't like how it looks with the big bulky display. This very simple mod erases most of the HUD, offering a very clean and simple display that takes up much less of the screen real estate.

Being able to configure the rate at which cores drain is an incredibly helpful addition for anyone getting into Fallout 4 for the first time.

The very fast standard drain speed makes it difficult to actually use power armor for any significant period of time while playing a straight run through (without giving yourself tons of extra cores through the console anyway).

Other than the iffy settlement system, one of the most anticipated changes to the Fallout universe, touted for inclusion in part 4, was the ability to custom build and maintain your own set of personal power armor.

Beware of disappearing power armor in Fallout 4! https://www.gameskinny.com/17kiu/beware-of-disappearing-power-armor-in-fallout-4 https://www.gameskinny.com/17kiu/beware-of-disappearing-power-armor-in-fallout-4 Sun, 07 Feb 2016 15:46:02 -0500 BlackTideTV

Bethesda Softworks' player ignorance has become painfully apparent to me recently. Not telling Fallout 4 players that they can activate a flashlight, activate and hold objects in order to carry them without adding them to the inventory, and neglecting to provide any type of tutorial for settlement expansion, I can live with. What I cannot, however, is the fact that perfectly good suits of power armor can go missing - as part of a game mechanic that Bethesda never told us about! 

As you can probably tell, I have a strong personal connection with today's topic, so there may be attitude and language in this piece - you've been warned!

Before I can explain how power armor can go missing and how to prevent it, I'll need to tell the story of how two, not one, but two sets of fully upgraded, pristine power armor - frame and all - went missing from my most heavily fortified settlement.

Of course, if you fear for the safety of your X-01 or similar highly leveled armor, I wouldn't blame you for heading to the "How is this possible?" section of the text.

What happened?

I think it's safe to say that we all see power armor similarly - it's damn heavy. If you see a frame with pre-built armor you take the whole frame, not the pieces off of it, or you'd be over-encumbered in ten seconds flat. This is how I ended up with six power armor frames standing around the Red Rocket Truck Stop.

Two were built as T-45s, one had Raider Armor, one was an incomplete set of T-51, and then there were my babies: a non-Brotherhood of Steel T-60 and a full set of T-51 armor, both pristine, fully modded and upgraded (I bet you'll never guess which two went missing).

Remaining Fallout 4 Power Armors - T-45, T-51, Raider

My remaining suits are a shadow of the greatness that once was.

Being the sole settlement I use, the Red Rocket is heavily fortified with a much higher defense rating than necessary for the minimal amount of crops and water I produce there. The property has no random settlers, only companions and trusted NPCs like Sheffield and the Vault-Tec Rep.

(Note: this "companion settlement" is the subject of a article that we'll be tackling some day soon, so stay tuned.)

Having too many to store indoors, I posted my power armors around my base of operations as sentinels to ward off any evildoers. Apparently that plan backfired.

Suppressed Two Shot .50 Cal Sniper Rifle Fallout 4

My affinity for suppressed sniper rifles and the stealth perks means that I often travel light, in other words: no power armor. My best pieces stood firm at the Truck Stop, waiting to be used for retaking the castle or some other difficult battle. 

I recently began The Silver Shroud questline which requests you talk with John Hancock, mayor of Goodneighbor and eligible companion. Hancock had been my companion for a while before I left him with the others at Red Rocket. I went and talked to him to receive my quest. Upon finishing the required assassination, I went to receive my prize. I noticed on my mini-map that Hancock was moving. He was in Red Rocket... now he was at Abernathy Farm... wait there he was at Bunker Hill. He finally arrived at his office in Goodneighbor; I assume he had to go back to finish the quest.

When I talked to Hancock he wouldn't let me finish the quest without bringing him back on as my companion. "Go home MacCready." I talked to Hancock and BAM! 750 caps! Rejoice! "While you're here you can carry some stuff Hancock." That's when I saw it. 

Flames T-60 Power Armor Helmet Fallout 4

A brand new Flames T-60 power armor helmet. Hot Rod Flames is a special paint job only available to the player after acquiring a special skill magazine. "Why in God's name do you have my helmet, you bastard?" I fast traveled back to the Truck Stop to replace it. That's when I started crying. The entire T-60 and T-51 power armor sets - frame and all - were entirely missing. GONE. 

I figured that the pieces might be in the workshop. NO. Maybe my other companions have them? NO. Maybe it got misplaced and I'll find it somewhere around the compound. NO. I even went back to the secret area where I found the T-60 suit hoping that it would have respawned. NO.

How is this possible?

Frustrated, I began to research the strange case of missing power armor. Not a single credible video game news site had posted anything on the issue (hence this article). However, I found a few forums with an absolute TON of people with the same problem. Some even had answers:

  • Power armor never goes missing, there's always a logical explanation.
  • Settlers can STEAL power armor from you.
  • Settlers can EQUIP power armor to fight off enemies and leave it in stupid places.
  • Raiders and other enemies that attack your settlements can STEAL power armor.
  • This is all possible through the player leaving fusion cores in power armor frames.

Here's the funny part. I was never told that my settlement was under attack. My settlers only consist of companions and trusted NPCs so they wouldn't steal from me. The four high-grade suits of armor I own were placed under the weather shield at the gas pumps, surrounded by four heavy machine gun turrets. The suits were nowhere to be found.

Hancock had the helmet, so I followed his exact path from Red Rocket, through Abernathy Farm, over to Bunker Hill and down to Goodneighbor, and never found a damn thing. 

Now, I've been told that players can even witness thieves stealing their armor. Pickpocketing fusion cores will forcibly remove them from armor. The other option is to kill the thief and loot the armor off of them. Unfortunately in my situation, I'll probably never find my armor again.

Fallout 4 Power Armor Fusion Core

To make a long story short:

TAKE YOUR FUSION CORES OUT OF UNUSED POWER ARMOR OR SOMEONE WILL TAKE IT!

Of course losing my prized power armor upsets me, but not nearly as much as the lack of knowledge on this purposeful game mechanic. Bethesda should have told us that power armor can be stolen this way. The tips we are given or "tutorials" if you dare call them that, are so pathetically simple, disregarding things that players actually need to know, that it's clear the company put little to no thought into them.

I'm sure anyone who has lost their favorite armor this way feels the same when I say that the exclusion of this information is absolutely disgraceful; and that's all I have to say on the matter.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll need to start my Brotherhood of Steel questline so I can find some half decent armor again...

#1: Chozo Power Suit - Metroid Series

\n

Samus Aran's Chozo Powered Armorsuit is the classic video game advanced armor. A brief glance at the abilities of this suit reveal life support, augmented strength, personal energy shielding, damage reduction and more.

\n

Samus' armor has too many upgrades and variants to count, including alternate suit styles such as the Varia, Light, and Dark suits. Upgrades found throughout the Metroid series drastically alter the abilities of the power armor but there are some consistent attributes:

\n
    \n
  • Power Beam - Samus' standard, built-in launcher.
  • \n
  • Oxygen Supply for outer space survival.
  • \n
  • Energy Shielding
  • \n
  • Damage Reduction
  • \n
  • Augmented Strength
  • \n
  • Life Support
  • \n
  • Extreme Temperature Protection
  • \n
  • Exterior Toxin and Parasite Negation
  • \n
  • Rapid Movement Speed
  • \n
  • Extended Jump Height
  • \n
\n

These are just the basic attributes of this super-suit. Different weapons and abilities can be equipped including one where Samus tucks into a ball and uses extreme speed to roll like Sonic the Hedgehog through her enemies. 

\n

The opportunities of this suit are endless, and it's a video game classic; very deserving of the #1 spot.

#2: CryNet Nanosuit 2 - Crysis Series

\n

The feature suit of Crysis 2 and is my personal favorite on this list. Able to send energy to one of three different "modes" at a time, the armor is fully versatile with cloaking capabilities, enhanced defense, and super-strength. The Nanosuit 2 allows its wearer to leap great distances, run at astounding speeds and perform on the battlefield like no other.

\n

Much like the Sword of Godric Gryffindor in Harry Potter, the Nanosuit 2 only takes on that which makes it stronger, absorbing energy in forms such as radiation, static, kinetic, and carbon emissions. The shell's Ionic Electroactive Polymer Liquid Armor makes the suit extremely resistant to harmful radiation and blunt force trauma. Wearers of the Nanosuit experience an advanced reaction time of 0.08 milliseconds, and the armor is EMP resistant.

#3: MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor - Halo Series

\n

Another highly recognizable super-suit in video game culture is the MJOLNIR assault armor from the Halo series. This suit is so advanced, regular humans can't even wear it without injuring themselves. Only surgically modified Spartan soldiers can control the suit's reaction time in order to use it to the best of their ability. 

\n

Named after Thor's mythical hammer, this suit/operator combo is not to be trifled with. Increasing the wearer's reaction time by a factor of five and doubling their strength only scratches the surface of the abilities provided by this suit. It is extremely resistant to EMP and radiation and seals out harmful toxins from the environment. It provides users with a rechargeable refractive coating (an energy shield) to disperse a limited amount of incoming damage. 

\n

The MJOLNIR assault armor itself is designed with an alloy of incredible strength allowing for extra damage to be taken before failing on the battlefield.

#4: T-51b Power Armor - Fallout Series

\n

The advanced power armor worn by factions such as the Brotherhood of Steel and the Enclave in the Fallout series is probably one of the most widely recognizable suits of armor in video game history. Unfortunately, this suit really doesn't provide the wearer with any supernatural abilities; it's all pretty standard stuff... as far as video games go, anyways. 

\n

Made of poly-laminate composite, the T-51b is lightweight for its bulky size and can absorb over 2500 joules of kinetic impact. I'm no scientist, but that sounds like a lot. A coating on the shell of the armor reflects laser and radiation emissions.

#5: Augmented Reaction Suit - Vanquish

\n

The most notable ability of the Augmented Reaction Suit, or ARS, is extreme mobility. The use of built-in magnetoplasmadynamic thrusters allows for rapid evasive maneuvers on the battlefield. Powered actuators in the suit provide incredible speed and strength to its user. 

\n

The ARS features a futuristic weapon retrieval tool dubbed BLADE, short for Battlefield Logic ADaptable Electronic weapons system. Essentially, BLADE can be used to scan enemy munitions, and then configure itself into any weapon housed in its memory on command. 

\n

The suit also reduces firearm recoil, deals devastating damage in hand-to-hand combat, and can withstand a decent amount of damage itself, only giving way after sustained gunfire.

#6: CMC Powered Combat Suit - StarCraft Series

\n

Terran forces in the StarCraft series often don the classic Confederate Marine Corps exoskeleton. This suit practically doubles the size of its wearer and is immune to most small arms fire. The massive shoulder pads house extra ammunition and sensor arrays. 

\n

But wait! There's more!

\n

The CMC Armor comes equipped with a ton of special features, dependent on which model players are using. Most suits feature a life support system and NBC (nuclear/biological/chemical) shielding, allowing soldiers to fight in almost any environment. Newer models feature built-in heads-up-displays, increased structural support, and a range of enhanced perception abilities for use on the battlefield.

#7: COG Armor - Gears of War Series

\n

The standard issue infantry armor for the Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) Army is tough enough to withstand multiple gunshots. Only with sustained fire can this armor be broken. Armor seals on the chest provide added protection to vital organs, but don't hinder limb movement, allowing for maximum mobility.

\n

The back-plate of the COG armor features a magnetic holster allowing soldiers to carry multiple weapons at once. 

\n

Variations on the suit include the Onyx Guard Armor which covers its wearer more carefully, features extra armor plates, and is black in color.
