Designation: Assaultron. Designed to provide a variety of security-related tasks to the modern man.

Assaultrons are a type of robot in Fallout 4.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Assaultron was constructed by RobCo Industries and sold to the United States military as a frontline wartime combatant. It is fast and deadly at close range, and employs a devastating laser at a distance. Some units can even employ stealth technology.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Specifications[edit | edit source]

The Assaultron is primarily designed for melee combat, with long legs that allow it to close distances quickly. Once in range, it grabs onto targets with its claws, then twists to tear armor, flesh, and bone alike. While it is fully capable of using ranged weaponry, its accuracy is not as good as other robots. Nonetheless, only the Assaultron can mount a laser in its head. The carrying capacity is decent, but other designs can carry more.

There are reports of heavily modified Assaultrons traversing the Commonwealth, ranging from those with Protectron heads to better make use of laser weapons to those that replace their legs with a Mr. Handy thruster for even more speed and wield dual Shishkababs in place of claws. There are also bizarre armor designs that give the Assaultron a fearsome visage, and definitely not authorized by RobCo Industries.

Although not directly related to Assaultrons, there are also reports of raiders adapting robot armor for their own use, including Assaultron head armor, from which they create Assaultron helmets. As for the heads themselves, some non-functioning units still contain a functioning laser, which those desperate enough to endure the subsequent radiation poisoning can use as a hand-held weapon.

Gameplay attributes[edit | edit source]

A bipedal, close combat robot intended for use on the frontlines, the Assaultron is a vicious enemy who just doesn't let up. Assaultrons focus primarily on close combat using their arms, with the head laser relegated to engaging enemies while closing distance. Some advanced models will also employ stealth, making them much harder to locate and dispose of. The best course of action is to force the Assaultron to navigate through obstacles and maintain distance. The focus on melee also makes it possible to engage them with mines, especially pulse mines.
