Automated Surface-To-Air Missile turret (often referred to as just ASAM) is a robot found in Fallout 76.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Automated Surface-To-Air Missile turret is a fixed anti-air artillery emplacement, firing guided missile munitions. A sturdy, autonomous weapon clad in durable armor plating, each turret combines the multiple missile launch system split between two laterally mounted arms with target acquisition and guidance systems in the main body. Although designed for engaging aircraft, the Appalachian Brotherhood of Steel easily repurposed them for fighting scorchbeasts.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The ASAM is the centerpiece of several events throughout Cranberry Bog, providing a hefty edge against any scorched horde. It has two problems: One, the ASAM is not part of the player's faction and players need to get a lick in (damage the target creature at least once) to get credit for the kill. Two, the ASAM comes in a single grade, at level 35, and does not scale with the player. As such, when facing hordes of high level scorched or various scorchbeasts, the ASAM's effectiveness is reduced (although not eliminated). Of course, it needs to be kept alive to support the player, which requires periodic repairs.

The ASAM is part of the following events:
