The advanced riot gear and the matching advanced riot gear helmet are pieces of armor in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.

Background[edit | edit source]

Advanced riot gear is an upgraded version of third generation combat armor. These particular units were issued to the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, whom were charged with riot control operations in Hopeville and Ashton.

After the Great War when the NCR began to annex the prosperous community of the Divide, they found this armor and used them for their Veteran Rangers in the Divide, acting as riot control officers in the city. With the destruction of the Divide, the armor was lost and the NCR riot control officers died during the event.

Gameplay attributes[edit | edit source]

The advanced riot gear provides slightly more Damage Threshold than the commonplace riot gear, but weighs five pounds less. It additionally has better durability, on par with the NCR Ranger combat armor. Its effect "Riot Response" grants addition bonuses of +10 Explosives and +1 Endurance.

The helmet gives the effect "Red Vision", which gives the player low visibility sight while in sneak mode between 6:00PM to 6:00AM or while indoors. This will toggle from on to off once you exit sneak mode. The helmet also grants a +2 bonus to Perception.

Variants[edit | edit source]

  • NCR Ranger combat armor: the Black Armor given to the NCR's elite Rangers.
  • Desert Ranger combat armor Honest HeartsGametitle-FNV HH.png, the armor of the Desert Rangers before they merged with the New California Republic Rangers.
  • Riot gear: an advanced version of the L.A.P.D. riot armor and the military helmet used by the pre-War riot control officers in Hopeville and Ashton.
  • Elite riot gear: a unique armor which was used by an important NCR riot control officer in the Divide.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Possibly an oversight, all riot gear helmets and their variants are classified as heavy armor.
  • Playing caravan while the sneak sight is activated may make it difficult to see the cards.
