The armored Vault 101 jumpsuit is a piece of armor in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

Between 2265 and 2267, a Vault dweller escaped from Vault 101 and reached Megaton. She knew nothing about the wastes and Moira Brown offered to armor her vault suit so she would not get hurt, but the girl never returned for it.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This otherwise normal Vault-Tec Vault jumpsuit is covered with a specially attached leather pads, pauldrons and a thigh holster, intended to provide some protection as well as extend the amount of wear and tear a standard suit could withstand.

This specialized suit contains a strapped on knee pad, a thigh holster on the right leg, a new belt with easy to reach pouches, a small bandoleer, a dedicated right shoulder pad, vambrace, and dedicated left pauldron.

Its damage resistance, weight, and durablity are identical to Vault 101 security armor, but the armored Vault jumpsuit has additional bonuses, namely a +5 to Energy Weapons and Small Guns.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • The suit can be found in Craterside Supply in Megaton. Moira will gift the suit to the Lone Wanderer after telling her what life in Vault 101 was like for her book. It can also be stolen or bought for around 180 caps, if you chose to not help her with the Wasteland Survival Guide.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The manner in how the armored jumpsuit is displayed is reminiscent of how the jumpsuit of the Vault Dweller is enshrined in the Fallout 2 intro.
  • There is no karma penalty for stealing the suit.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The armored vault suit is the "canon" armor of the Lone Wanderer: they are seen wearing the armor in every ending slide in which they appear.

  1. The Lone Wanderer: "Where'd you get the Vault Suit back there?"
    Moira Brown: "I'm pretty sure I remember a girl coming into town with that about ten, twelve years ago. She didn't know a thing about the Wastes, and I knew she'd get herself hurt without some sort of protection. So I offered to armor her vault suit. Never saw her again -- probably died out there, poor thing. In a way, she gave me the idea to write this book. It's yours, if you help."
